And flatulence is a brain bending, earth changing topic of conversation?another way to derail a thread from any meaningful discussion of relevant topics is to flood a thread with meaningless banter about such nonsense as cornbread recipes and cast iron skillets. This is a tactic used by dis/mis-information agents when truth is exposed and they cannot think of anything to say as a counter-argument.
These are open forums. You were vacant, yet NOW you pop in to berate us for our choice of conversation material? Where you perhaps loitering in the background, waiting to interject? If so, I lightly apologize for upsetting what you must consider a delicate yet absurd balance of topic matter in a thread that has veered off course for years already..
We can and will talk about anything we find of interest to speak about between each other. Just as you have to freedom to do the same.
Furthermore, politeness goes a long way toward maintaining ANY conversation. Might be something for you to think about.
I am rude to no one on here, and I could only hope for the same in return from 'other' parties who join in on the chatter in here..
