<quoted text>Really interesting you CLAIM, others resort/revert to personal attacks.(I prefer resort. Sad to think English is your native language. You suck at it.) Do you actually think the 50+ repeat posts are rational behavior ? Get help, soon.
And you keep responding despite the fact that you are talking to nobody but yourself. I was hoping it would make you go away but it just led to you being infatuated with me.

I have killed probably thousands (possibly millions) of insects in my life. If another nest of bees invades my yard this summer, it will kill them again....and think nothing of it. Why are you so infatuated with me my insects?

I am not manipulating anybody. I have a tremendous amount of respect for how tampabayallstar handled a blowhard like you. I am trying to learn from his example.

Do you have some connection to postal delivery service or are you stalking me ? As far as I can tell, you have NOTHING to contribute, except an opinion which has no factual support. Did your mom do the dance with no pants, with your mailman and you're still pissed ? Grow up, junior...

I handled this guy the wrong way. When he is incapable of developing an intelligent retort, he attempts to go the bullying route. I generally push back when people attempt to bully but I think your way of handling people like ex-pert/ex postal worker/quick rabbit or whatever alias he creates is much better. His goal is to control the emotions of others. By becoming agitated (even if just slightly) it fed his irrational behavior. I like your method better. Thanks for the insight!!!:)

I enjoy discussing the post office and their fiscal irresponsibility. Why you follow me to every forum that I post on is beyond me. It seems like you are infatuated with me and I have no idea why.

USPS is in financial trouble be­cause of Congress — specifically, the Postal Accountability and En­hancement Act of 2006. That law requires USPS to pre-fund its Re­tiree Health Benefit Fund.
No other government agency or private business is required to pre-fund retiree health benefits.
This year, it will cost USPS about $5.5 billion. Without that re­quired pre-funding, the Postal Service would break even or show a small profit.
The Postal Service has overpaid somewhere in excess of $50 billion into the Civil Service Retirement System over the years.

He's posted 100s of times on multiple postal topix boards, yet the ex-postal worker is stalking him. That's good nonsense, jack. Wanna bet who posted on the postal topix board first.....I didn't think you'd like that bet......L-O-S-E-R !

The point of these forums truly is to have clean debate. I never believe it is ok to bully , verbally attack others or otherwise. It is true if you get back to these people the way they attack you, you are feeding into their hands. I am serious when I say I pity those that have to verbally attack others in a debate, no less a stranger that means no harm and simply wants to get an opinion out. You know what they say about opinions lmao. Also it is counter productive for the bully, because people are less likely to be swayed , if that is possible. My opinion has changed on certain issues , when someone, INTELLIGENTLY, stuck to the issue at hand and did not go mean on me. It is rare , but has happened lol.

I didn't even realize that their was a postal service forum until you told me about it. Thanks!!!!! The thread I was participating in was one that was on my home forum but thanks to you, I found a multitude of thread on the PO and their fiscal irresponsibility.

I have previously shot back at bullies but I am going to change my behavior in that regard. I have also been swayed in a discussion when people present logical and well thought out points that make sense. Unfortunately many people on here sling insults because it makes them feel better inside and any point they had gets lost.

I do think it is lying to tell children a fictional character bought their gifts. Sorry if you disagree and it is ok to disagree as well I might add. That does not make either of us a bad person. We just agree to disagree. Have a great evening.

TB-The terms "liar/unfit parent" might be ones you should avoid using, in the future. You're smarter than that ! You work in public service, dude. Different beliefs are part of why each of us has individual qualities. Some differences create incredible strengths, which can ONLY be explained by faith. Feel free to have your own beliefs, but don't insult differences. I understand you're young and don't like admitting, you might be wrong. In my world, an apology is the MOST valuable thing you can give, that costs nothing.

Lying to children is GOOD!!!! Telling them the truth is BAD and makes the truth teller a lousy parent. The "logic" of this is soooo obvious.

I understand what you are saying and I caught your sarcasm lmao. I want to be consistent and not put anyone down. Notice I am not apolgizing for saying that lying to children about Santa buying the gifts is wrong. EX-PERT thinks its ok to do so and that is his right. As I said we agree to disagree.

I agree that if people want to lie to their children that it is their prerogative to do so. What I don't understand is how one can claim that being truthful to children makes them "unfit" as he put it. It simply makes no sense to me.

(apologizing>>ironic) I believe in situational ethics.(No thanks, jack, I'm not explaining it to you. Use your internet for something, besides ranting.)

You have a point. There are a lot of wonderful parents, including my own, who are deceased, that brought children up in this world that Santa did not exist. These are people of all religions and beliefs or non beliefs... Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Atheists, Wiccans and yes I am sure even some fine Xian folks that did not feel the need to lie to their children about who brought their gifts.

I suppose there are tons of "unfit" parents who try to be truthful with their children around the world. That just HAS to be bad for the inhabitants of this planet. Hopefully we can survive this atrocity.
