The amount of harassment and insults I recently have been receiving from both of you makes me happy. If you multiply by -1 as you are non-Chalcedonians outside the Church it's even better than prayer.
O Holy Passion Bearer Mike of the Bad Attitude, Pray For Us!
But seriously, no one is "harassing" you, Mr. Sensitive. For years, you've interjected nasty, cynical, dismissive and sarcastic comments into our discussions - mostly pointing out, as you have above, that you think
we're not part of the Church or whatever - and I for one think the best response to those sort of posts is good-natured, well-intentioned humor. I don't want to get into a nasty tit-for-tat with you, and I'm not going to just ignore your bile. Unlike some others I could name, I'm not going in for the "Oh, that's just our Mike!" thing, or the "Oh, you know how those blunt but lovable Eastern Europeans are! No filter! And Americans are just so overly sensitive!" Bull plop. If you can be abrasive and snide and attempt to tell people off all the time, I don't have to shrug and shake my head and say, "Who else but Mike?"
I can respond to your silliness with more silliness if I want.
