I've got better things to do with my time than spend an hour hand-crafting a reply to a troll.

Gosh, and I did that in 20 minutes.

I see you pigeonholed me as nothing more a troll. It's nice to do that to people who say things you don't like, because that way you don't have to consider if what they're saying has any truth to it.

By definition, a troll's arguments are not connected to what he believes. If you don't believe what you're saying, why should I take it seriously? How do I know you're not simply trolling me now?

I didn't pigeonhole you as nothing more than a troll. You did it yourself, by not only admitting it, but bragging about it.

Sure I'm a troll. But I'm also a father, a comic, a computer geek, a scifi fan.

I'm not telling you what I don't believe. I'm more approaching this from the perspective that I'll tell you the unvarnished truth and you'll remain impervious to it.

The unvarnished truth as you perceive it. As you have no doubt realized, I disagree with it.

I only hope you're not raising your kids to think that mocking and trolling is acceptable...for if you are, you're merely inflicting your damage on the next generation.

I'm raising my children to be honest people, to tell the truth, rather than to lie and accept crap from others.

I'm also trying to teach them appropriate ways to deal with conflict so that they don't end up like you.

Since you appear to believe trolling and mocking are appropriate ways to deal with conflict, I fear you are, indeed, inflicting your philosophy indirectly on future generations, and I'm sorry for your kids and those who they will victimize.
