/These two fellows don't seem to understand that when they create
folders and filters for a group discussion, that indicates they are
prejudiced against reading the messages of some the other informants.
Barry already admitted that he was prejudiced.
You could hardly expect an intelligent conversation when they don't even
view messages in a threaded format and instead read them as sequential
email, and take almost everything out of context in their replies. In a
fair and balanced debate, participants are supposed to read the messages
BEFORE they post their comments.
They don't even have to be "enlightened" - just be able to think and
reply with a little intelligence. Go figure./

Not likely, but why pray? How is that going to change the situation as
you perceive it? I do have a certain tolerance for Jim; unlike Barry,
I do read some of his posts, though their usual brevity and emotional
coarseness is a turn off. (Barry's emotional coarseness is also
sometimes a turn off, but I do not perceive him to have a genuine
attachment to it, so mostly it is just fun.) Compassion for Jim is not
necessary, he is enlightened by his own account, therefore not in need
What he seems "in need of" is someone to obsess on. Namely me.
I wrote him off and deprived him of an audience when he feels like
yelling at someone and telling them how low they are and how high he
is. Rather than live with that, I guess what Xeno is saying is that
Jim keeps writing posts about how much he hates Barry *anyway*.
If that's your idea of what enlightenment is, I wish you luck with it.
To me, it makes it sound as if Jim is just another version of Steve
and Ann and Willytex. Ignore any of them, and they obsess on you
*more*, not less.
