That is what I mean by offering NOTHING to the conversation. Your posts are pretty much worthless. Either talk about the facts or shut up and move on to other topics and stop trying to get the thread shut down.
Since when has anyone ever had an obligation to provide more than their opinion?
I'll be sure to remind you of your next post that doesn't warrant an international award.
And you can drop the shut down aspect. I'm not even sure what you are talking about. I hope you aren't so delusional that you think my pointing out your violation of forum guidelines classifies as an attempt on my part. Simply because you don't have the mental, physical or emotional capacity to post in a non-reactionary manner within the guidelines (non-political) doesn't mean that someone who takes notice is actively trying to close the thread down.
I don't care if the thread is open or closed. I have no emotional attachment to the thread.
If things were set according my preferences no threads would be shut down but people who, for whatever reason, couldn't avoid violating the guidelines would be subject to mandatory posting breaks. You should be so lucky considering you're likely one of the bigger offenders, as witnessed in this very thread. Furthermore, had you not spouted off the wild rhetoric, there's nothing I can say.
So again, what are you even talking about?
