If I insulted you only to put you down, then I'd owe you an apology. If I insulted you for no reason, then I'd owe you an apology. However, I insult you for good reason. Because you behave poorly and unethically. You've still not apologized for being a dishonest little shit in this post: http://www.sciforums.com/showthread.php?p=1179371#post1179371 I'm waiting. As a matter of fact, I do derive some enjoyment from insulting vile little worms such as yourself. If you didn't behave as you did, then I wouldn't derive any satisfaction from pointing out your malbehavior and I would then no longer insult you. Emotions are a goad, you know. It does serve a purpose. It is a social cue for you to change your behavior to an appropriate one. You are simply socially stunted. You never learn. One can always hope though. As to scientific fact and truth... there you go again. You never learn. That just shows your learning deficit. This is the best way to respond to a post, Valich. In this way, we respond to specific points. In this way the person we respond to knows exactly which point we are responding to with each point of our response. It's called communication. I'm sorry that you are unable to grasp it. Of course, the reason you dislike it so much is because you often find yourself on the end of an insult and thus have misinterpreted this style of communication with insulting behavior. This is your problem however. Perhaps someday you will learn better. I doubt it though. You're not the only reader, Valich. Just because you have poor reading skills doesn't mean that others share them. I didn't insult you when I responded about how you posted views different than your own. I merely made the point that they are us unauthoritative as any other. There's this little thing called intelligent discussion, Valich. You put forward a theory then you back it up with logic. You are incapable of this. You have authoritatively stated something that was never in any doubt. Duh. Instincts are inherited from ancestors. Duh. A viewpoint which has been stated again and again... but, you don't read people's posts... As I said. Your loss. Yes. You fucking idiot. No one ever doubted this. This was never in question. Christ you're fucking stupid. See why I'm insulting you? Because you're being fucking dumb. Although, the likelihood of this behavior benefiting the ability to capture prey is low. Social concerns are more likely. 2 and 3 seem most likely to me. However, I also think that my argument for creation of a social pack smell has strong reasoning behind it. 1 and 4 are unlikely. I think it's saying something about how stupid you are. Thank you, Captain Obvious.
