END SPAM. Please. You're all over the place.
EPLOVERHATER, you really have no heart. I think you need to stay out of the people's way because your intention is to troll, bait, flame on a board and there's really no place for that.

Seriously the Welshman deserves a Texas style welcome. HOpe that Rosa's Cantina owners treat him to his favorite music..live...at the cantina.
Take him to the missions and the 'tour'...Billy the Kid jail house in San Elizario..all expenses paid.
Do you hear that, Mr. C(r)ook? Show him genuine West Texas hospitality...without raising the taxes.

Just don't take him to Juarez or he may never make it back to Wales.

I'm glad to know you notice and realize how I'm trying to do my part in helping change the world for the better. So what do you do? Get over it, I'm not going to stop until all horses are safe.
I have better things to think about and do besides being petty on a message board to others. Such as trying to end this
http://www.fund4horses.org/images/slaughter4....
So do want to help or not?
What you are trying to do for the horses is commendable. The method you are using is annoying. Stop spamming the boards. That's all I'm saying. Have a good day.

I welcome you to provide examples of me trolling, baiting, or flaming... I'm just stating the obvious. These horse posts, that have absolutely nothing to do with the story or article being discussed, are everywhere. Make a website or something, and promote it through there. Hold a rally. Don't spam the boards. Have a good day.

The way you sit on your a**** is horrific and your apathy is dangerous. If you don't like the anti-slaughter horse posts then go out and do something instead being stagnant crying about some posts behind a message board. You have NOT answered my question: DO you have something real to think or complain about and in what way are you trying to change for the better???? If you don't like something don't read it. It's that simple. Its not me that you don't like, its the subject matter that I bring up that's disturbing because it shakes up your world of ignorant bliss that evil things happen underneath your nose while you let it happen and the world is not perfect thanks to man's ego. The truth hurts doesn't it!!!! Well, what about those animals who live this? I have news for you, stopping my "posts" will not end the horror of what's happening so you are going after the wrong person and your aggression misdirected. Take that anger and do something positive by going out to the real world (not this message board) and make a positive difference. If you didn't do anything in your life to make this world a better place than your life didn't mean anything and didn't mean s***. You are worse than annoying, you are just as bad as those people that let this happen like the ones who kill these horses. As well as your condescending exit and trying to get away from me by saying,"have a nice day." Well it wasn't such a "nice" day for many slaughter bound horses today and farm animals because of people like you. I will challenge you and anyone who gets in my way of trying to save and speak up for horses and you will get ran over. And if you haven't gotten the message by now I am not going anywhere.

I don't think I'm the one being aggressive (read your own post for a good example of aggressiveness). I actually complimented you, and I sincerely meant it when I said what you are doing is commendable. I don't really sit on my *** nor am I apathetic. I like discussing topics and stating my opinions calmly, and with an open mind. I never said what you were doing is bad or wrong, just that you're going about the wrong way doing it, and yes that is only an opinion. I never said it was fact, nor did I ask you to accept my opinion. I apologize for appearing condescending, as that was not my intention. I sincerely meant for you to "have a nice day." Aren't we all entitled to our opinions? Feel free to continue spamming the boards, sir, and exercise your right to freedom of speech. No one, including myself is stopping you, including myself (but it is still annoying). Relax man, your tone is not going to win over any supporters. Have a good night sir, I hope your fight is successful and you find more effective methods of promoting your cause.

Thank you. I didn't know "annoying" was a compliment.
So answer me this, in what way are you trying to make the world a better place?
Do you want to help yes or no???

You have no right telling a person what they can or can not do and calling peoples posts spam because it shakes up your world. There's freedom of speech here and you my friend are attempting to encroach on my rights. The real intention behind attacking my posts is about your deep seated fear of death and need to control the inevitable by control others. Let's be real here and not try to hide behind backhanded compliments like I commend your annoying spam.

So lets put differences aside and talk a little about in what way are you an effective human being, and do you want to help end this atrocity? Yes or no.

I love horses and all animals. Isn't it funny that anyone who speaks up for animals is always given a hard time. That EPHater got a real problem.

Yes I do have the right. We both do. You just mentioned it..."freedome of speech."

But honestly, reeeeee-lax. Seriously. If you met me in real life you would see I am the complete opposite of what you blindly assume I am. Once again, I am sincere in my compliment of you, as well as my opinion that your multiple posts being spammed across the boards are annoying. I'm just being forward and honest...wow.

That is the most pathetic thing I ever read in my life. Children are being chared and killed in Iraq, animals and people tortured all over the world and endangered species being extint, people are dying in the USA because of no health care, our economy is a wreck, people are loosing their jobs and homes and unemployment is at a high and your mission is to end spam or what you just don't like reading. You really killed any credibility you had with that one and have no credibility. You have seem real deep psychological issues and I suggest you get help and get your priorities straight.

LOL. BTW, Gaser, I'm a fan. You write some funny crazy **** here on topix.

(no sarcasm, seriously)

I just don't get why people take everything so seriously, especially on topix. It's just an internet message board. Lighten up people.

Agreed. Some people are born into this world and they seem to have no purpose.
