 I am going to ask you a serious question here, and only in a clinical
sense: are you mentally retarded?  Honestly, Donovan, you either have
an unfortunate pathology that robs you of even rudimentary
comprehension skills, or you are trolling.  If the former is true,
then you have my sincere sympathies, and my suggestion that you see a
physician immediately, before your condition further deteriorates.  If
you are already seeing a physician, ask him about changing your
medications, as they are obviously no longer effective.  On the other
hand, if you are merely trolling, then you need to take lessons.  I
recommend that you spend a couple of months reading Digg or Slashdot
to see how it is done.  Not that your trolling hasn't ensnared me, but
it isn't very sophisticated.  I am easy to troll, because I assume
integrity in everyone.

And then you ignore my closing question.

Maybe your medication needs to be adjusted.  Maybe you are a troll.
Either way, I don't have any more time to waste.   I have given you
the benefit of the doubt for months, but your self-deception (or sheer
idiocy) makes it impossible for me to continue humoring you.  I won't
avoid you on the street, I won't add you to my killfile, but your
demonstrated lack of coherent thought makes it unlikely that I will
attempt to engage you in dialogue again.
