I would also, if i may, add that responding with a smiley face not only is not a real response but is also down right rude to a person trying to have an intellectual conversation.
It takes all of 5 seconds to ask for somebody to clarify what they are saying or say you don't understand or that you agree or whatever. But putting a smiley as your entire response is very annoying. Personally it pisses me off and i don't even really think this site should have them.
What is my joy if all hands, even the unclean, can reach into it? What is my wisdom, if even the fools can dictate to me? What is my freedom, if all creatures, even the botched and impotent, are my masters? What is my life if I am but to bow, to agree and to obey?
But I am done with this creed of corruption.
I am done with the monster of "We", the word of serfdom, of plunder, of misery, falsehood and shame.
