***** Luis:
Do you deny being a reductionist?

Classifying myself has never been my bag! I am not a real "joiner" and have never really felt a compulsion to accept other peoples ideas without thinking about them myself! You would have to see Harv about such things.

***** Luis:
Your actions contradict your words. You responded at length to my criticism, and in less than an hour! I seemed to have hit a nerve (as usual). Hell, a child could see you're bothered by my opinions. Indeed Dick, if my views were so trivial, then why have you bothered to respond at all?

I read every post on this forum; and, when I feel something worthwhile can be said, I respond.

***** Luis:
Why are you so concerned with responding to a person who apparently does not think at all?

I don't count my responses as that rare a commodity to be hoarded. Don't you enjoy them?

***** Luis:
I'd pit my intelligence against yours any day. I'm curious -- has yours ever been measured? Does another bit of that transparently daunted personality of yours reject IQ tests? It would certainly come as no surprise to me.

Oh, my IQ is easy to determine! By definition, your Intelligence Quotient is your mental age divided by your actual age. By my reckoning, my IQ must be somewhere in the range of 30 to 40. Beat that if you can!

***** Luis:
But then, of course, it really doesn't matter what I think, right? (I'm sure had I not interjected this notion you'd be soon bending over backwards convincing me of such.)

It matters very little what anyone thinks! And to care about the issue is rather a childish waste of time.

Have fun -- Dick
