Please stop this personal bulls@#$# right now. It's idiotic on every level, and no one here wants to hear it. And no one wants to hear catty responses to it. It's beneath you and everyone reading. We like and don't like stuff, we argue passionately for our ways of seeing, The End. Leave the ad hominem attacks where they belong: in the comments section of youtube and other places illiterate 'tweens like to hang out.

You're right, of course, I should have held my tongue, and not stooped to his level. I do apologize.

Then again, your last sentence is pretty good. "Illiterate 'tweens"? Good one.

But I will be interested in seeing the response from other list members to Patrick's latest set of guidelines as to who can and cannot offer an opinion on this list. Evidently only
"accomplished," non-middle-class people who don't avoid crime and violence need bother having an opinion.

I notice he didn't mention reading the book as a requirement.
