Thread Name: Do purists really exist?
Subject: RE: Do purists really exist?
here is a definition that is intersting in fact it refers to a jerk as a bore, so what you seem to be saying is that what matters is whether people are boring about their purism.
which i must say seems to reduce your attempted argument to the pinnacle of absurdity,


Well, GSS, if you are saying that musical purity jerks are often narcissistic, I agree. I don't really see that as being the same as being a bore, although I like to avoid both jerks and bores. Finding an internet clip that equates jerkiness with being boring is fun, but it doesn't mean that I made that comparison, or that you get to tell me I'm being absurd when I talk about people who are jerks. If you claim to not know what a jerk is, I don't really see any point in having a conversation with you.

You seem to be spending time deciding, without any evidence, that I'm really saying something other than what I'm really saying, and then arguing with me for saying what I really didn't. It's getting boring . . .

I don't get the feeling that you are spending any time actually thinking about what I'm saying. With all humility and respect, please back off.
