I have to say you are missing the option I use. That I take all he says with a pinch of salt and try not to let him piss me off. I often ignore him, occasionally respond and rant, but all in all I just let him be.

Because after all, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and while I might not agree with what someone has to say, I will fight to the death to defend their right to be a complete asshole. Doesnt matter who really. Everyone can say things that can be construed as hurtful, or are deliberatly designed to be so, but after all, not everyone in the world agrees, if they did, life would be simple.

Nareed- I basically agree with Croupier. Your poll, which asks people to classify their sexual preference and feelings about mkl, is silly. You already know exactly who and what mkl is, as do the rest of the forum members. He makes many intersting points, and many insulting ones. I have been the target, early on here, of some mild barbs. I let them drift away into the ether of the internet. His gambling knowledge has had him answer many of my gambling questions. I appreciate the answers. I generally am interested in his takes on religion and atheism. I also appreciate his doggedness when it comes to exposing the system hucksters. So-
I would guess it would be in YOUR best interests to just not engage him in any non gambling related matter.

+1... I find this poll kinda of dumb and certainly not helping matters. My sexuality has nothing to do with how I view posters on this board, and in an ideal world, it should affect yours.

I agree. But his majesty keeps saying my gender dysphoria is all that keeps me from worshiping at his feet. I'd like to test that.

It would be in my best interest not to engage him at all. As soon as he stops stomping on me, we can go back to ignoring each other.

Are we talking about MLK - Martin Luther King Jr.? Or are we talking about MKL from this board? My vote depends on this answer.

The answer you are looking for lies behind door number 2.

MLK? Who's that? If you mean MKL, have you got a man crush on him or something? Just ignore most of his posts, life is too short.

Apparently sexuality/gender identity is paramount for Nareed. I certainly seem to have gotten him in a lather--and all I did was say that a sex change operation was physically impossible. I guess it's sort of like telling one of those 2 A.M. radio talk show callers that there aren't any alien ships orbiting Earth.

It's interesting--and significant--that Nareed is so, so, so offended by matters of gender and sex, but insists on reminding us every minute of every day what his "sexual identity" is, as if it was something we all massively cared about.
The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.---George Bernard Shaw
