You're not going to succeed into baiting me as you have tried to with AW. I don't roll that way, darlin'. YOUR synopsis of boredom may not be that of other people in here.<quoted text>
Una talking about flatulence was just another tactic by mis/dis-information agents to discourage people from returning to this popular thread. When that didn't work, then you try to bore people to death with meaningless nonsense. Politeness is like political correctness, where controversial issues are avoided and everyone agrees for the sake of politeness, and frankly these conversations tend not to last too long. Debating controversial topics is much more likely to maintain an extended and meaningful conversation, and this is largely the reason why this thread has gone on for so long. When it gets boring here, I like to stir the pot by presenting controversial and relevant issues, and when I can get others to try to debate with me, that's when it gets really interesting and thought provoking. Tell me, what's so mentally stimulating about cornbread recipes and cast iron skillets?
To each their own.
So by all means, carry on and converse as you wish. "Stir that pot" to your hearts content. It's not my style to badger people. Never has been and I'm not going to start now..... I'm proficient at skipping over things that don't interest me, and I can also avoid conversations from those I consider to be intellectual bores.
Have a good evening.
