: Sorry old bean, I still happen to believe that past experience counts for something. As I've said in the past, I was an ardent Communist at one time too, and a Democrat. Where you are, I've been. I've forgotten, what is your occupation? Are you the one who was a trapper?

Such a response is insulting in so many different ways. First, you have no legitimate expectation that Qx ought to tell you his job. that's his business. Second of all, it is the height of codnescension to wirite off his opinions based on his job, saying "teacher, intellectual, etc." and treat them as jealous rantings instead of engaging with them as reisoned opinions. Such fake-pyschological bullshit is one of the most insulting things I know. Thirdly, you could have easily gleaned Qx's past history by taking the time to read many of the posts he's been posting to McSpotlight for years. That you did not shows that you didn't want to take the time. Fourthly, your feigned failure to remember hsi job (hmm, are you the trapper?) is teh msot insulting of all. When someone tells you something about themselves, if you have any courtesy whatesoever,you ahve the obligation to remember it; ostentatiously foregtting what they told you is just a means of telling them that their opinion is worthless. Thanks a lot Frenchy. Qx ought to be extremely insulted right now, that he isn't is a testament to his patience. You owe everyone on thsi board an apology.
