I'd counter with "are you able to carry on a conversation using only
*one*
side of your mouth, for at least a little while?"

I find an alpha to avoid getting rolled by PII/300's and other alphas.
You
say that is unethical.  You get a PII/300 so *you* don't get rolled by
alphas and PII/300's, and you say *that* is my fault too.  I say
bullshit.

As long as you are behind a little, you want to whine.  But given the
chance to join the horsepower race, your ethical standards go out the
window and you do exactly what we did, yet we did it for the wrong
reason,
while you were "forced" into this and that makes it ok.  Again, I say
"bullshit".  I understand "hypocrite" perfectly well.  It applies here
*perfectly*...

yeah, yeah.  the PII/300 is ok, but the alpha is not.  But I wonder if
you
knew Thorsten was searching for a PII/300 a week or so ago?  I assume we
can
now close this topic since you are "joining"?  Or do we continue with
these
groundslug ethics and keep making accusations?
