I'm sorry, is this a five minute argument, or the full half hour?

¬*Graeme has the means to truncate it to five minutes.

Even quicker, I'm not taking part.

¬*That's fair enough, but confirms my view that the posting which
started¬* this subthread was a complete wobbler. Glad we got that sorted.

Only inside the echo chamber of your mind.

On balance, as you refuse to justify your position, it fails.


You really are pathetic, desperately trying to have the last word so you
can justify in your own mind "winning" an argument that only ever
existed i your head. For heaven's sake grow up and stop acting like a
spoilt child.


It's hard to believe that Roland was once a high flying international
business executive. Although I suppose it's this sort of childish behaviour
that brought that career to an end.


There's no need for that sort of personal stuff, especially when you
were not the target of his pointless argument (on this occasion).

I know you are going to hate this, but I wasn't even the one stirring up
a pointless argument. That honour goes to those who fail to understand
the mayor's role. I did my best to put that record straight, but the
fallout has been admittedly very tedious.

I don't hate it, I don't care. I don't read every message. I don't
recall who posted every message that I do read. I don't know who started
this argument and I don't care to check. But over time I do notice that
every pointless argument has got you in it.

I seem to attract people who quibble about the most minor of details.

The threads which people characterise as "pointless" are usually where
the quibbler has egg on their face and keeps digging.

It's a feature of Usenet, and we just have to live with it.
