I will defend someone; that is the honorable thing to do. This is not the first run-in I have had with this fraud.

I started this post to confront a fraud and their unwarranted insults about a long time member that I respect. If you have a problem with that, then it is your character that needs checked.

If you want to challenge me on what I know and where my conclusions come from, I am game.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

We've had a couple of runaways--by you. If I'm an fraud it should be reasy to expose me for that with what I've said over the past forty posts.

But you won't.

Because you can't.

Because....

Right On! Draw a line in the sand with your big toe and dare anyone to cross it. Intellectual is lame, Academic is a better word.

...You engage in middle schoolyard insults constantly and it is a form of bullying...You argue in front of a brick wall and be damned if anyone is gonna break it down, I've never seen you use diplomacy and the only way anyone will win an argument with you is by war, the killing off of your opponent, which does not solve the argument...When have insults ever been warranted or done anyone any good Jimmyb...Apparently your not the bigger man and your character does need to be checked...it's logical for me to think I don't want anyone insulting another person on my behalf whether I've been insulted or not...The only place insults are okay is with your friends, and you better be damn good ones...This is internet social interaction, shallow interaction at best...This is not a game, this is Life...

Jimmyb does not insult unless first insulted which is merely human nature. Jimmyb is the legal expert on this board and if I ever need legal advice will ask him. There is a lot of talent on this board and as my dad said, "Don't burn your bridges."

The most significant thing about me is:

Finish the sentence. Anyone game??
Honesty, caring and a high moral standard.....and a down and dirty grunt when the need arises.

Some of the site heavies weighed in and of course some were snide/dismissive, but that's to be expected on the Internet and life in general. Doesn't bother me. The point is, some humans are oriented to discovering the objective truth of things, and some pride themselves on it. Back during the time of Voltaire, humans would verbally duel about what was most important and/or most interesting regarding all late available facts, and proudly claim superiority. We do much the same thing on sites like this.

What is the fun of an intellectual duel? To show who has a greater grasp of the objective truth. How do you have an intellectual duel? It's simple: A question is asked, and anyone can try and answer it. Or, you ask a question, and anyone else can try and answer it.

No one today dares refer to themselves as an intellectual, but we all are, at our own level, an intellectual. Some are heavier than others, true, but we can still have fun and show off what we know. Don't be afraid to be wrong, or say duh, I'm not. If you have time and feel like it, to start off the duel, answer the following question:

What is the most important thing to every living human being?
Survival, family and tribe in that order. Survival has to come before family only because you have to survive to protect.
