[quote="ostarella"][quote="MPhillip"]rob-lost - I want to thank you for ripping my personal opinions to shreds despite the fact that your unwanted and unkind comments did not address the original post. Well, no, I'm not really thanking you.[/quote]

Did I miss something somewhere?[/quote]


Maybe. Maybe not. I would surmise that Mphillip did not like the reply from rob-lost.

IMHO a bit of an overreaction but somewhat understandable.

Those replies were both mild compared to what I see on other fora.

In fact, they were mild compared to some others I have read here in the past.

One can remain locked in one's "opinions," or one can accept that other information alters those opinions.

I'm pretty stubborn myself. I don't change opinion easily. But I don't take offense when others share an opinion differing from my own.

Something is true, or it is not. How one feels about that does not alter the truth of falsehood of a fact. And calling a fact an opinion does not make it so.

If MPhillip is offended that what he claimed is not wholly true, that is his right. But that does not mean that he is right.

And yet, if MPhillip buys all his/her ebooks from Amazon, would s/he not be right? Wholly? S/He did say "I". *I* can't. S/He didn't say anything about whether *you* could.

If you believe something impossible, and then are shown that it is not, why would that offend you?

Some people are illogical and irrational. They are usually politically oriented and will never admit that their ideas actually failed because they believe they are true and that makes them true because they believe it and they are so much smarter (they believe) than the rest of us and should be telling all the rest of us what to do, think, and believe, as well as eat.

That's quite the meaningless run-on sentence there, william.

OK. We'll agree to disagree.
