:bump: I met a literal "senior" person who refused to take my promo/business XR card but said that he would "pray" for an end to global warming. Amusement factor - zero.

Hey, I'm doing something. I'm posting on the internet and telling anecdotes about what I do in my spare time. Ain't I speshul? No, I'm not. I eat frozen pizza for dinner some evenings and toss the box in the rubbish that goes to the incinerator. If I carefully watched my use of consumables that contribute to AGW, I'd not have time for all this internet posting.

Me, I didn't have kids. It's the best fucking thing I could think of to claim my dedication to preserving the environment, enough so to say, "my work here is done". Plus, I'm old. That's several decades now of the kids I didn't have, and what an impact I've made.

Perhaps, instead of post count and other means of propagating self-image, we should adopt an ecological footprint as indentifier. That should make "who is who" more transparent or?

I was credited by a Labour party councillor with "getting the ball rolling" in their devising and submitting a climate change motion next month, including but by no means limited to committing to net 0 carbon by 2030 for the city council's activities...what's the carbon offsetting magnitude of that, if any I wonder I might claim...bad KIR, shouldn't be wasting time on the net with pointless anecdotes, irresponsible spoilt waster, that I am, eh Cito.

You can't really take Cito seriously. I don't think s/he takes her/himself seriously ;) Maybe sometimes, but it's hard to tell when.

gj man! It seems to me you got this thing going for you now. Keep it real.

Cheers. If you fling enough stuff some will adhere - that's me and AGW for the most part, bashing away - no real gift required methinks. I also have a lot of "spare time" which many do not.

Don't worry about Cito. Some people talk a lot because they like the sound of themselves talking. What they talk about they care not. This applies to him, except you need to substitute a couple of words. Cito likes the look of the posts he's typing. No, it doesn't matter what he types about. Just look how he despises filosifeezing. Strangely enough, the forum section he is most active in is 'Philosophy' (38.15% of all his posts). And how he loathes religion! How odd that the thread he is most active in is 'Historical Jesus' (10.00% of all his posts).

I'd like a nice, concise/brief apology from him...in an ideal world. Perhaps he could grovel :roll: :lol:

You'll be lucky to receive a belaboured pun or two surrounded by some oracular rambling.

There was no butchery of your quote surr, so I'll wear a tentative grin - I reckon Cito probs is quite a groovy fellow : )

What, pray tell, has offended you so? Is it just that I didn't paste a gold star on your forehead for all the good work you're doing helping to draft toothless resolutions to be brought up in your local council? Nothing melts a snowflake like turning the spotlight on itself.

What's offended me? That I respect your opinion of me. That.

And if I withdraw that respect...you might well have a bad day, but you know what they say: omelettes and eggs.

It is withdrawn. Thanks for that Cito, I might well have a bad day myself now.

Not sure I understand, yet. For what is (was) an apology desired?

Search me, tuco. If you get off on a social environment where one can accumulate reputation points, perhaps you should hang out more at those sorts of joints, and hang out here a little less.

FFS Cito - ask Hermit or something...he got it...something about you criticising my telling "anecdotes" and thinking myself "speshul" and a snowflake? Serious fuckage of idiot with a gold brick seems imminent...I just hope it's not me...

I do not get off on it but it's inevitable to accumulate reputation points in any social environment because its how human work. But right you are, perhaps I should hang out less around here where my reputation points are in negative values ;)

So do I understand it correctly you are not in favor of having one's ecological footprint public? Are you afraid of a bad reputation?
