Why would I care whether you would accept my conclusions? We're having a
discussion of carbohydrate vs fat here, not a popularity contest. Despite the
ptiched battle, I'm learning as much as anybody. So far, you've contributed no
knowledge in that area at all.

Gee, for a minute there, I thought you were saying you were some kind of God
of the Objective. Nice to see you're actually human.

Still, you're jumping into a conversation where you have no knowledge and your
sole contributions are personal attacks. Are you a member of an "easily
offended minority" by any chance?

Wonderful contribution to the discussion. Red herring followed by a personal
attack. Do you have anything intelligent to contribute? Drooling doesn't

Oh, dear. Wrapped in the flag. I won't take that posturing to the bank. You're
