You see those three little dots at the start of your second quote? Let's see how the sentence read's if you include that context:

Just as well I'm not motivated to come here by their acquisition; else I might take umbrage at [...] the theft of the recognition of my efforts and contributions for the last 6 years.

Note the emphasised words; note the difference the context makes; note, the absence of the misplaced ellipsis at the end of the sentence.

See what I mean about people "responding" to shit they make up. And perpetuating a non-argument for their own purposes.

That's not a complaint in your reality?

Correct. A tentative supposition about something that might be true if circumstances were different; is not "a complaint".

Any more "contribution" to make to this non-argument?

    You are so full of shit.

    You can apply whatever formatting you want but it doesn't change what you said.

    "else I might take umbrage at the theft of the recognition of my efforts and contributions for the last 6 years."

    The subjunctive "might" referred to the "umbrage" in your diatribe; the "theft" you claimed to have suffered was a statement of fact.

    You just forgot that XP != votes, and instead of looking at the docs, you went on a drunken rant about it. Now you are trying to twist your own words to make yourself look like less of an asshole.

    It's not working.

    (And you can't even see the irony that you, of all people, have replaced your great nemesis as the XP-Whiner-in-Chief.)


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
