PD, Would it help if I offered to have an exclusive engagement thread with you and me where we can issue a running commentary like sports commentators. I would argue with you in that thread to help you feel better.

He has been added to the roster. You aren't so much scary as an irritant. Go soak your pussy in gasoline and light a match to it.
hmmm. Texas Lynn, do you smoke?

I do find it ironic that you are arguing against moderation in the most moderated forum on the board though.

but in the capacity of setting that up, moderators are like maintainence personnel, not manners police. That I'm OK with. It's closing threads, moving posts, banning people, etc. as an act of power to which I object.

Actually, not so much as that a nasty asshole like you got to be one without even asking for it coupled with that. I was never interested in modding at all until I saw what a failure you were as one, just as you are in the other areas of your life.
