Discursive implies digressing from subject to subject and this elusive
tactic is practiced not by me but by Doaln. I have often complained
about this very issue ... Dlona's lack of focus and his diversionary
modus operandi.

Unlike me, he does not ever learn when to let go, but
I understand him as well as I understand myself.


Ed wants to let go and even more wants for me to let go when he has
been logically entrapped with nowhere to turn since admission of error
or defeat are not acceptable options for one with so delicate an ego.

Tom is the far more
interesting character for me. I can learn from him because he is
sufficiently different from me.

Jim and I represent the liberal arts. We are essentially generalists. Tom is
a scientist and represents those specialties as well as anyone I have ever
encountered. I make fun of those types but I respect them nonetheless. Our
world could not function without them. I do not like them ever ruling
anything other than their specialties, but that is more than enough.

Jim seems not to have a clue as to what I am doing on these newsgroups
whereas Tom does.


I beg to differ. I know why you are here, but I am not convinced that
you are objective enough to realize and/or admit to yourself why you
are here.

It is a mark of his intelligence that he has figured me
out. But still I would trust Jim more than I ever would Tom. Tom has a
strangeness about him that Jim does not have. As Jim would say, these
newsgroups are just chock full of conundrums.


And .... you are numero uno.

PS. By the way, unless you use your real name, I will always treat you with
the contempt that you deserve.

I do not like to get stuck in a rut like JimmyMac. But even so, JimmyMac
takes me up on my every diversionary move. Stalkers are their own worst
enemy.


TRANSLATION: I Ed Dolan do not want to get stuck in an argument when
it become apparent to me that I am about to have it stuck to me.

Unlike me, he does not ever learn when to let go, but
I understand him as well as I understand myself.

This is all esoterica which interests no one, least of all me.


There was nothing abstract, complex, perplexing, cryptic, ambiguous,
obscure in what I wrote. My statement was simple but precise ... not
esoteric in nature.

interesting character for me. I can learn from him because he is

Ah, but I am! Tom knows this much about me even if you don't. You need to
learn to read between the lines.


You are not an enigma. You are quite transparent.

out. But still I would trust Jim more than I ever would Tom. Tom has a

Ed, don't allow your imagination to mislead you into overestimating
your relevance. You will never be mistaken for a member of the
illuminati. Readers, it would apper that Conan the Librarian does not
know the definition of the word esoterica. Regardless, since Dolan
has asserted that he is not interested in what I write, I hearby
formally, and publicly, grant him permission to stop reading and
responding to what I write. I could not have made this any simpler
for anyone so simple.

Esoterica is anything that the vast majority of folks are not interested in.
That describes you and your posts perfectly.

You've taken a bit of literary license with the term esoterica which
generally is accepted to mean something which is intended for or
likely to be understood by an initiated minority or small number of
people with a specialized knowledge or interest. What I write seldom
falls into such a category. By the way, did did provide you with an
out when I granted you permission to stop reading and responding to
what I write. You must be a glutton for punishment. Wel,l I will do
my utmost to be accommodating.

You meant in you opinion did you not? You have taken literary license
with the term esoteric which is generally accepted to mean something
which is intended for or would likely be understood by an initiated
minority or a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or
interest. Seldom does anything which I write fall into this
category. By the way, I did provide you with an out when I formally
and publicly granted you permission to stop reading and responding to
what I write. You must not be a glutton for punishment. I'll do my
best to be accommodating.

The definition of the word simply does not fit. I write not just to
you regardless of how I have directed what I have written. What I
write is not intended for or likely to be understood by only a
minority or small number of people with specialized knowledge or
interest. Do you not comprehend what esoterica means or are you just
plain dumb? Never mind your posts are self-authenticating in that
regard. I have to agree with your first sentence that started this
thread ... I can't learn anything from Jim.

Esoterica must be considered within the confines of this newsgroup. In any
event, you are too hung up on dictionary definitions. Context is EVERYTHING!
What I say is hundred times better than what any dictionary says.
