: MDG: : Better stay asleep in your regeneration chamber, Borg. We wouldn't want you to wake up to the fact that maybe all is not well in the world. Shhh, go back to sleep: big business will make everything all right...

: F: I have to admit that I admire anyone who is able to live a semi-normal life while at the same time envying others with so much passion. It must be quite a burden to know that while the actions of some speak for themselves, your speech is action. Carrying a cross of such proportions approaches the limits of a super human. I stand in awe.

: Qx: Here we have Frenchy trying desperately to convince others that MDG is just a passive onlooker when there is not sign of such behavior on MDG's part. Could it be that all the neo-Nazi propaganda has eaten away at Frenchy and that he needs to tell us all about it now? Is it w result of jealousy?

Frenchy is merely heckling us, so treat it as soot falling from the sky: just brush it off. The probably with making assumptions about people, and worse yet, voicing them, is that it leaves you wide open to error and ridicule. In the end, it's a sign of intellectual laziness.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go back to my passive existence -- all this typing has worn me out!
