Dear DnM,

You are one bitter fellow. Your posts are drenched in arrogance, acryd cynicism, hatred and sarcasm. You seem to spend a majority of your time on this forum. While I pity you in many ways, I am nevertheless wondering.

GIK mentioned that you seemingly spent time in the middle east. Since you rarely fail to point out your superior arabic language skills, patronizing even arabs for their inferior grammar, I actually believe that you indeed may have first hand experience.

What amazes me however is, that most people living for a while in a foreign country, actually learn something about that country and more often than not speak lovingly about a region they called home for a time. I myself oftentimes found that the more time I spent in a country, the more I was able to appreciate its beauty and culture. Most world travelers would probably have made the same experience.

You seem to be the exception of the rule, and I cannot help but ask myself, if some traumatic event has happened to you, which made you hate a culture so much, eventhough you spent time within.

GIK explains your tonality of your posts with passion. Most average readers however will perceive nothing but naked hatred. Utter cleanshaven resentment, window-dressed with arabic quotes. I watched some of the most hateful sermons given by imams, I watched Reverend Wright's verbal ejacultaions, I studied Hitler's speeches and cannot help but getting the very same strange feeling, when reading your pieces.

What happened to you, which made you the same tunnel-visioned fanatic as Achmadinejaad, the DnM of the other fringe? Are you a muslim convert? Has the local imam been touching you improperly?

Man, you've got to relax and watch your blood pressure. Calm down, take a deep breath and maybe consider some anger management therapy. By now I feel almost guilty to post anything, as I do not want to be responsible for your foreseeable stroke. I feel, as If I had a decent, polite discussion with like minded people, while the obnoxious drunk at the bar is trying to butt in. I know it is frustrating not to be the center of attention, but your heckling is seriously cramping my style, buddy...it is really annoying.

Do you get my drift, or do I really have to spell it out for you?
