Jaimehlers, I don't remember ever asking you to debate eaterjolly's age with me. But you are really going to have to read my post more carefully. I said I should have done some "perfunctory checking" before posting. Where in that post did I try to "defend that mistake". You need to take a deep breath and relax. Your making this much larger than it needs to be. I would have much preferred eaterjolly to just tell me his correct age than have to waste my time with you. You need to read posts more carefully because it is clear in my post that I was not trying to "defend a mistake". You can clearly see that I admitted to making a mistake by taking eaterjolly's word for it. Furthermore, my post was directed to eaterjolly. When a post is not directed to you I think it would be best if you just stay out of it.
Do you really think I'm not able to tell what you were actually saying with that response?
First off, I'm not debating eaterjolly's age with you. I'm correcting your misunderstanding of his post and signature, that led you to you challenging him to a inane debate about how old he actually was.
Second, the way you put "perfunctory checking" in quotes made your actual meaning quite clear - that you were responding derisively to my post. Indeed, you still are with this one.
Finally, regarding your statement that you made a mistake by taking eaterjolly's word for how old he was - in his signature, almost certainly written when he was fifteen - it was quite evident that you were only using that admission to springboard into a rant about Christianity. All you really showed is how petty you're actually being in this thread. Interesting, that all you seem to want now is for eaterjolly to tell you his proper age - especially given that you said again that you made a mistake by taking his word for it.
Honestly, what made you think challenging eaterjolly to a debate about his age was a good idea? All it did was attract attention that you evidently don't like, from your responses to myself and Azdgari. Frankly, I don't see why you're upset, given that posters on this forum get involved in things that they have nothing to do with all the time.
