<< Jake, if my post peeved you off, I'm sorry. I was trying to make a truce, or something like that.

Hey, hey, now. Don't take me too seriously. A lot of my posts are playing the role of agitator. You didn't peeve me.

Now don't go trying to make any truces between Reed and I. I am enjoying the war too much. Don't spoil it now. I am taunting Reed a little bit. But that's because of two reasons, 1) he is a tease. He acts like he wants an intelligent discussion and then he starts evading one. 2) He keeps painting these ridiculous pictures of us rationalists, as oppressive assholes. I was just out-doing him with "Logic Nazi". Over the top? Perhaps a little, but I am willing to go the extra mile. I first considered holding off after Reed's first reaction of indignation. But Reed didn't let up any, so I decided to go ahead anyway. I am not displeased with him, it only adds a new dimension to this game.

>>I was only commenting how
I saw his tangents differently, because to me they made him seem more genuine, colorful, and human. Personally, I'd rather see list members use tales about their background and experience to show their viewpoint, rather than endless cold arguments. Is that biased against you? I certainly didn't intend it to be.<<

Yeah, right! You just don't like me!! Well fine!
