Let’s not post anything on this board that would prevent us from having a nice beer together , if we would meet face to face. The topic isn‘t worth the aggravation, imo.

It's way beyond that point for quite some time already.

Nonsense.  It's all in good fun.  A little heated debating over the internet shouldn't prevent anyone from being friendly over a brew in person. It's like the car analogy.  When you are driving and someone cuts you off you get angry and (especially if you are from MA) yell and make rude gestures with your hands.  But if that same person had bumped into you while walking on the street or in the grocery store you'd say excuse me, I'm sorry, and laugh about it.  Being face to face makes all the difference.  Of course, however, if you are the type of person who regularly resorts to fisticuffs over in-person political discussions then I would rather not meet you.

rkbabang, perfect way [to try] to derail this discussion going on in this topic, from its theme. I'm pretty sure Jurgis won't take the bait, though. - As always - time will tell!

John, I think there's a geographical issue here, with you being so far away while I'm closer to MA. Every person I've met from MA has a broad and deep repertoire of obscenities and they're damn proud of that fact. As a fellow profane person I can appreciate that. RESPECT!

No problem.  Different cultures have in-jokes that can go over the heads of outsiders.  I expected Jurgis to get a chuckle out of that comment which you highlighted not to be offended by it.
