Re^8: What is "aggressive" argument?
in thread What is "aggressive" argument?
And there it is, the message that veers off the path of discourse and heads down the path of insults and flame wars. I didn't actually except to see it happen in this thread, but no matter.
Regarding geography, no I did not notice any hint of irony. That's the problem with writing -- intent is often not clear when it comes to irony and sarcasm. I saw the literal version of what was written -- e.g. that you do not know that much about the Mid-west, and responded in kind.
Regarding Peoria, Illinois, IBM has a campus there, and since it's in the Mid-west, I thought you might be confusing Boca Raton and Poughkeepsie for it. I'm not sure how anyone goes from "Peoria, Illinois" to the sound of barfing, but it is a good example of how you tend to derail threads.
Anyway, sadly, given the direction this thread is headed in, there's little point in continuing it. :-(
