<"I'm feeling like the child in the Hans Christian Anderson story "The Emperor has no Clothes.">
I know the feeling well, no matter how many times I tell people I am not a paid agent, or even an unpaid agent, I have no agenda to push, I am not trying to put across disinformation, but am simply disagreeing, I am not a shill for BP or any government or corporate entity, I am not trying to stop anyone from saying anything, or posting any information. Yet, I have people insinuating these things almost every time I post something in some forums.
This does tend to make me a little over sensitive to what may be innocent remarks, and if I have been this way with you Mira, I do apologise, and will endeavour to curb this tendency.
Concerning your post about "patterns" and such, this gave me the impression that you think of the people on this forum as lab rats, that you choose to study for a hobby. What you are seeing Mira, could very well be wrong, or skewed by the influence of your own perceptions or those of others.
I could have read you intentions wrongly, I am only human too. None of us have the benefit of speaking with people face to face on these forums, so it is very difficult to know what peoples motivations or intentions are. Asking questions is a good way to allow the other person to give you that information, if they choose to do so.
People are not obliged to answer your questions Mira, as indeed you are not obliged to answer any questions directed at you, you can choose to, as can others. The person you directed the questions to, in your post, may simply have chosen not to answer you, that is something only he can tell you.
