In my professional opinion, never trust anybody that tells you they wouldn't sell their self-respect for any amount of money.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I would sell my self respect, and I might even be cheap. But I'd want a low interest rate to buy myself back, or I'd lose even more self respect.

What is a good interest rate on self respect?

It is relative to the risk - the higher the risk of default the higher the interest rate. It is like gambling odds offered by bookies - the horse with the best chance is offered at lowest odds.

Well, we sincerely hope that you are, in fact, a professional troll.

We'd hate to think you spend hours of your days posting your sanctimonious claptrap without compensation.

We'll refrain from speaking about your wife since we doubt that any woman would be stupid enough to willingly commit to a life of such torture.

Sure I'm aggressive - with good reason; but of course I'm the only one.

Go back to the beginning of the thread and see when the snarkiness started, and by whom. Then come back and tell me that I'm wrong.

Someone said - "It's immoral to be involved in a business that is designed to prey on the unfortunate."

That was met with - "It's legal! They're helping! Communist!!"

Followed by a lot of rolling on the floor laughing.

I used to think that the influence of people with subjective morals could be ignored, and that they'd learn - or die off. I know better now.

Ymmv.

This is always hilarious to me. Yep "with good reason" and the famous "others do it too".

But no there is not a reason to claim non violence and all the arrogant nonsense you preach but don't practice. Words mean nothing without backing them with action. Your actions are what shine through.

And others don't claim the high ground you always want to occupy.

Like landmark for example. He seems to live his beliefs. I may disagree, but I still see how he posts and it is consistent with how he acts.

Your aggression is just so contrary to what you preach. It is stunning.

What is going on is the governments get the people into debt, then raise taxes, cut services etcetera, then we the people go short and start borrowing and so now we a mountain of personal debt. Why philosophize when it is only the action that really matters. When the action slows down it is bad news for everybody.
