    Yes, but you were poking fun at them.

    I often lampoon the absurd, and there is little more absurd than someone challenging my right to challenge others.

    When did I ever challenge your right to challenge others? I just said that arguing about politics on a website is pointless.

    You asserted that the individual does not have the right to challenge the opinions of others. I asserted the contrary opinion, and remarked that your own code barred you from challenging me on this without being reduced to hypocrisy. All very straight-forward.

    And if it's pointless, well, then go, leave us be, and don't sully yourself with our lowly presence. I don't recall asking you to.

    Are you saying political discussion is bad in general? Or are you just one of those "internet arguments are 4 retards" type of people?

    Oh, so now I'm stuck up? You just crossed a line.

    I don't think you can convey a very good message without posting a wall of text. So I prefer speeches. :)

    Dude.. :lol:

    Why do you think that?

    And what's wrong with a wall of text?

    I never said you were stuck up. I merely suggested that somebody who finds our discussion "pointless" may do better to leave us be than to tell us that this is so. It's not something that anyone is particularly interested in hearing.

    I don't like reading a few paragraphs when a few sentences would suffice.

    I'm sorry- did I misunderstand what you were trying to say? I interpreted it as you assuming I consider others who do not share my beliefs to be inferior.

    I did...?

    EDIT: Oh, yes, I meant that it's better to summarize when writing, but elaborate when talking.

    That's certainly not what I intended, and I'm sorry if it sounded as such. I was trying to say that there's really no call to tell people that their harmless activity is "pointless". It effects you no more than you let it, so need be of no interest to you at all.

    Okay. :) Then I'll leave you to your discussion of politics and slink back to the forum games.

    here's my, incredibly late to the party, contribution:

    Economic Left/Right: 2.50
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.79


    I'm about where I expected on the Left/Right scale(slightly right of center), but according to this test I'm slightly more Authoritarian than I thought I was.

    Overall pretty centrist, which I agree with. I'm pretty non-ideological. I'm only interested in what works. :goodjob:

    Took it again.

    Economic Left/Right: -7.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.26


    My shift to the left is scary.



    If I have time I'll help compile an updated list of results

    I'm different to what you have on that list. Perhaps I hadn't posted it in this thread. :dunno:
