Since all of your responses to the question have been other questions, are you maybe using a different definition of the word "answered", noel?

Or maybe you think your questions suggest an answer you are thinking of, but not stating. Why not just clarify your answer, if that's the case?

"Or maybe you think your questions suggest an answer you are thinking of, but not stating. Why not just clarify your answer, if that's the case? "...

Sure.

Utilization of racial prejudice has been a bi-partisan arrow in the quiver of American politics since Carpet Baggers descended on a defeated Confederacy during reconstruction, and will continue in a bipartisan manner for as long as it is effective in winning elections.

This is hardly an obscure insight.

So, to clarify: your answer is yes, what Pyrtolin alleged is indeed the case?

Or are you saying something else?

If Pyrtolin told me today was Sunday, I would check his context.

I said precisely what is written. No more, no less.

I recognize that you are (presumably) not Seriati, to whom the question was originally asked. So I won't complain about the way you're trying desperately to dodge, since I don't particularly care about your answer.

I have another question for you noel: How do you feel about people who don't answer questions, but don't admit that they have not answered the question? Do you feel that their behavior adds to the discussion, and adds to the success of Ornery as an enterprise?
