I have found the last 72 hours very enlightening.
I respected quite a few people here, and now for a surpisingly-large number them, that respect level is at zero.
So many people I actually liked have run to defend that which is indefensible. I am not speaking of plagiarism, I am speaking of appalling, childish behavior that would cause someone to get their teeth kicked in (and probably get arrested) if they said it in public.
By doing so, they have shown me (and quite a few others) their true colors.
So, it's real easy: I have removed them from my Favorites. I do not want to see anything written by them show up on my blog. I would rather not be reminded of their presence. I am no longer interested in any opinion they may have to offer. I will avoid posts written by them from now on.
I know they probably couldn't care less about this, but quite frankly that's one of the reasons I have lost respect for them.
However, I would like to extend a heartwarming "Thank You" to them for not stringing me along any further. Sooner or later I would have found out what kind of person they were, and I'm very glad to not be wasting my time any longer.
Also, I would like to express my gratitude for teaching me the data and lessons they did over the last 72 hours. It is not something I will soon forget.
With all sincerity, I hope they have a great life. Without me.
