Ah, now our arguments are reduced to correcting each other's spelling.

Very witty.  For a fifth grader.

We're not going to start take lessons on linguistic clarity from the "mommy I can use big words" crew of Desis who have recently made their way back from blah.  You can tuck your righteous indignation back in the original thread, thanks.

non-sequitur is a big word?

It was the most appropriate word for the sentiment.  I think you're having trouble distinguishing vocabulary inflation from simply precise speech.

Zed, baby, you're just upset that with me back, you're no longer the top troll.

If it's any consolation, I've been WAY off my game for months.  I've got too much going on in real life to be effective here.

my reply was to the OP.  I submitted and saw yours after I had posted. 

I appreciate your recognition that with yourself back there are so many of us throwing feces at the wall it can be hard to manage.  Regardless, I yield to your more finely honed trolling talents.  Who I am to tussle with the man who gave the children of JoS "paper and pencil coding."

While I in no way wish to encourage future trolling efforts, even I have to admit the "paper and pencil coding" passage was "a neat hack".

It sounded good, made a point, and was sufficiently under the radar to get some responses.  Artistry.
