You used to post some good stuff but now it's degenerated into pseudo-intellectual sniping. You should lighten up, it's not that serious or important.
Generally, I think you're a decent poster from what I recall. Sometimes I don't agree with you, but that's fine obviously. I think you've just got into the habit of feeding more extreme posters a negative line in thinking, and then they run with it, and turn it into pure miserabilism. Not with any malicious intent, I don't think, just a tendency.
Don't get me wrong sometimes negativity is called for in describing reality, but doing it relentlessly doesn't take things anywhere. It just ends up as a echo chamber.
In terms of respect, as you referred to earlier. It really doesn't matter that much. It's just an exchange of opinions on here. People can tell me I'm talking shit in their opinion, and explain why and that's fine, and I'm happy to do the same the other way, as you've noticed. It's nothing personal though, because clearly we don't know each other.
