He gave you some sense as to why he's experienced in this area. You can choose to believe it or not; you can listen to his opinion or not. Responding snottily, to things he didn't say, seems like a less than optimal choice. Put another way, I got a lot more interesting info from his post than from your retort.

He tried to force his kink on everyone else.p>

So thinking marriage is something that takes place between a man and a woman is a "kink" now, is it?

“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.” -- Barack Obama, Nov. 2, 2008

"Marriage has historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman." -- Hillary Clinton, January 2000

So kinky these two!

I think voting for people, or contribute to their campaigns, who in turn vote to tax me, constitutes "taking real world action against" me. Those people should be immediately fired from their jobs for the action they have taken against my personal property, as well as that of every tax-paying employee of every U.S. company. Your argument doesn't work very well, does it?

Believing that the definition of marriage that prevailed for 2000 years shouldn't be changed is not the same as not liking gays, as has been pointed out so many times that I can't believe I need to say it.

Why what this guy does in his off hours is any of Drupal's business is a mystery to me. Are they going to investigate all of their employees' personal lives for PC conformity?

I agree, SE is really annoying. I apparently can't help anyone there because I don't have enough "reputation" or something. I guess 38 years of dealing with computers just doesn't quite qualify me for their little club.

As for people who respond to questions with "Why would you even want to do that in the first place?", I absolutely HATE that. While it is of course a valid response in some instances, it seems to be the goto answer for the first responders to a far higher percentage of technical questions than actually merit that reply. Unless the opposite is truly obvious why not assume that the asker is not an idiot, and answer the question he's asking, instead of questioning the question. Makes me crazy.

2 million is only 1-1/2% of the electorate, and the other candidate also has high unfavorable ratings, so your point is not one. Further, as has been pointed out repeatedly, if the electoral college did not exist, candidates would run their campaigns differently and would be trying to win the popular vote. Your argument is the same as one saying that the team that gains the most yards in a football game should win it, not the team that gets the most points. Games are judged by the rules of the game, not by extraneous scoring techniques.
