I try to limit my "debates" to two or three posts. After that...the responses become redundant. I always hope that my writing skills will allow me to get my points across in those two or three posts.
I have in the past participated in some of these "debates". In the end they have been a waste of time. Most of us...are not going to change our minds nor will we back down.
I had this thought the other day...if today was my last day...my final hours...would I want to spend it arguing with some anonymous poster about some moot point...
This thread is like a soap opera...you can take time off...come back a couple of thousand posts later...and not miss a thing. We need to get us one of those people that can write a weekly recap in 4000 characters or less.
There is some chance to share knowledge and learn in the flow Annie.
