If you aren't at all concerned with facts, and getting those FACTS right, then why bother to waste your time posting here... Become a fiction writer and make some money from your efforts...
With the gems of ego and wisdom you have posted here on this Topix.net forum you would be really good at writing fiction/fantasy novels you have the right sort of mind for it...
You're just so witty! I'm not sure why you think that having the right mind to write fiction novels is a BAD thing anyway.

I didn't realize that topix was for people to list facts...I assumed it was for opinions only. You should probably stop posting as well, then.

Well... Opinions based on misinterpretations of facts and a lack of a good grasp on the subject at hand are much less valid than ones that have a basis in factual reality...

Otherwise all we are left with is your emotional rhetoric which uses tiny pieces of facts incorrectly strung together to insinuate and attempt to validate itself trying to make your opinion seem more legitimate than it really is when you often get those important tiny details you use to support your interpretations wrong...

If you wanted to do that why not use the disclaimer: "Here is my unqualified opinion on the subject," but no, you always post your thoughts in such a way to try and seem more knowledgeable on whatever is being discussed than the people out there whose opinions differ with yours...

Someone thought that you are tried as an adult at 18 and not 17. She isn't claiming to be an authority. She thinks you are considered an adult at 18 like most people do. I think you have some personal thing against an online personality.
