"My best buddy just gave me a potato. I love potatoes! I couldn't be happier!"

"Potatoes suck, man. I much prefer squash. It is so much better."

------------------------------------------------------

I don't understand why someone could post "My wife and I just ate lunch under a beautiful pine tree. It was wonderful"
And without a doubt, someone is gonna post "WTF.. oaks are so much better for dining"

------------------------------------------------------

Why would someone think, for even a second, that when someone said "My son is kicking a$$ at tennis" it is normal to respond with " Tennis is stupid. Baseball is tops"

------------------------------------------------------
Why is that okay?

There is nothing the heck wrong with being contumacious.  If you weren't a sissy you'd appreciate the innate superiority of oaks and squash.

Blah blah blah. Disagreements are fine. But responding with "Yellow sucks" in a thread called "I love yellow" is at best obnoxious and rude as frak.

This is such a wonderful topic. My gratitude is overwhelming. Thanks RanD. Thank you so much for bringing this worthy topic to our attention. I'm just amazed the topic has not received more attention. You are so inciteful noticing what we neglected.

Oh, dittos galore. +1 +10. I just feel so . . . so agreeable, you know.

I have learned that it is way better to be part of the problem than part of the solution.  It's not nearly as much work, and it doesn't end with taking away someone's reason to live.

In all seriousness, you are of course competency correct.

Was it the Alice Cooper thread? Did I say something wrong? Oh, I'm just so ashamed. Why can't I learn to follow your example? You would never say something incendiary, would you. Would you, RanD? ???
