Great example of why we can't have conversations (or more precisely, why they turn into shitshows).

There is just something about the way you post (generally) where you don't make your pivots clear to me, at all.

These threads always have a half dozen of subthreads going on within them, so it's not like there isn't room for multiple discussions, I guess I just feel like you don't really acknowledge my point or do much to segue (especially when you quote me), which makes me feel that you think that your response is in direct response to what you have quoted, and therefore I haven't articulated my points well. There are times too when you drill down into some narrow part of what I have said without acknowledging the larger point. It's kind of like that conversation with somebody where that person needs to make everything about him/her, if you know what I mean?

However, if it's just me that is thrown by this I'll just remember that this is what you do and will try to deal with it better so that neither of us are frustrated. I'm sure you don't mean to blow off what I'm saying and are just trying to fork new conversational threads, for the most part.

I'm also sorry for calling you a horse. Did I call you a horse? I don't remember, but you aren't a horse. I don't think? I mean, you could be a horse, but the chances of that are extremely low.
I'm not sure I agree with all your accusations, but I'm certainly guilty of blowing my cool when we debate (something I always regret afterwards), and I often don't communicate as clearly as I'd like.

That said, unless the idea is I should criticize myself more than I just did, I'm still lacking guidance on where I'm supposed to take this.
