WW: Sorry - didn't mean to offend, but when somebody flips me the bird I can't help but flip it back. My "little assertion", Quincunx, is that replacing "false" ideas with "correct" ideas won't bring down this capitalist mess.

Qx: That's not much of an assertion but you did say it was little. You flippantly (pun intended) trivialized not only ideas but evidence by stating little homilies along the lines of "so what?" Is this something yelled in frat houses across the U.S.A. that passes for intelligent conversation?

WW: Remember the workers' watchword: Don't expect me to lay my ass on the line for no good reasons!

Qx: Good. Now please tell that to your boss.

WW: Did I pass the audition?

Qx: That's up to you to decide.

WW: Probably not.

Qx: If you look upon yourself as "not passing" than that's your decision.

WW: Some advice: Don't call someone names if you really want to debate.

Qx: Actually, you're not here to debate but to disparage the postings of others. If you can't handle the heading of a posting than at least take on the content of that posting. That's something you haven't done and somehow the moderators seem to have overlooked that also.

McSpotlight: Look, now both of you have blown off a bit of steam, could we get back to the point?
