You, however, did not. > None of which amounts to "wants to hurt people", which is what you >accused him of. I was out of line here. I apologize to Michael. I don't think he took offense, but if he did I genuinely regret it. > And yet I see tha tyou don't yourself bother to try to prove your > argument; you merely continue to go after Michael and I on peripheral >points. No pun intended. Didn't have to: you didn't address anything other than personal or peripheral stuff. > Sure. Online coke machines are just about as cool as coffee-pot > webcams. They were in 1995. Back when the first one went online.

Or perhaps that I was trying to cool the discussion down a bit. I had already tried to bring it to a close once.... It was an extended hyperbole of ridiculousness. Soda machines. MMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmm. > Once is tongue in cheek. > Twice or three times is dilettante. No, I think it just proves that saying the same stupid joke three times doesn't make it funny.

And I am a dillettante. And everything I say is just so cute and precious. And I am Wrong. > I'm out of this one though; we are certainly out of AUP. I'm with you on this, for sure. If you want to address me off-list please feel free. --Patrick Darden
