And...we have a dodge.
My point was that instead of substantively replying to points, as the mods did, you instead went the Testing route with vague allusions to what might happen to Testing, and then after the substantive discussion was over, went the "SEE I TOLD YOU SO" route. That's exactly what I'm saying.
As for your "direct point by point response on page two," further reading on page two will reveal how you never replied to my points.
I also espoused a similar stance in the Ending Page 3 Lock
thread just under this one at the moment. Hell, poster number two, right after the OT. Nope, mod didn't come in there before me and do my work for me. You should know this, you were in that as well, well I guess you were to busy asking why should they change the purpose in Testing and that they should change the purpose or existence of the Senate.
Yet another oversimplification! My goodness, this is a running theme!
Again, you simply attempt to sound smart and snide without actually understanding the argument - much like what you're accusing me of doing. Again, I'll go slowly for you, since I want this to be clear - these are two separate issues, and attempting to conflate the two is facetious. I referred to the Senate's purpose in that thread, and if you'll notice, that was my same argument in this thread, because it appeared (until given adequate explanation otherwise) that the mods had completely bypassed their own Senate, which appeared to violate their credo.

Describe what "me and others like me" are and do, and describe how all of us as a group suffer the same malady.
This is the same problem you had in page two of this thread, if you recall - I called you on your stereotyping. You dodged then, are you planning on giving an actual response this time?

My stance and my position is hardly new, nor has it ever needed a mod to do it for me, but perhaps I can offer you a T-shirt to dress your strawman with?
Ok, when you find this mystical thread thread that somehow supports all of your points, by all means excitedly inform the Internet.
I laid out my arguments exactly as they were, and let them go when they were answered by fgalkin and Ghost Rider. This was proven in sequence in this very thread.
Your attempt to squeal "WHY DIDNT YOU GUISE JUST LISTEN TO MEEE" all by itself says that you're after ego masturbation instead of actual discussion, further evidenced by your lack of serious replies in this very thread.
Pretty funny that my response that set you off was to Duckie and not you. Who's sating their ego with hur-hur sequels?
Wow, this is the third dodge of yours in the same thread. Yet again, instead of addressing the actual points made, you're...whining because I replied to that specious bullshit you posted instead of Duckie? Really?
If you're attempting to prove the superiority of debate and argumentation inherent to all Senators, you're disproving it instead.
Oh wait, you quit.
