: Dear Julia,
: On one hand, I agree with you, and on the other, I don't.
: The problem with your analysis of Fred is that you are trying to define him -- desperately. From the first post that you ever responded to... when you wrote something like "My profile of Fred" or something like that, you have tried to analyze and sum up Fred. You give him labels, and try to tell him what he is doing... and then he responds, sometimes being serious, sometimes not, and you can't tell what he does, or why he does it. I can't either, but I'm not trying to.
++++ Jeff, ever since Fred called me a Bored Again, he labeled me and he cataloged me into his neat and orderly file of People that He Loathes. And he doesn't just do this to me, he does this to countless people on Aina. and whatever other posts. I have rarely seen him be civil with people that he disagrees with, and in talking to them he only makes fun of them, affixing his own labels to how he sees them. I've seen him do this for over a year.
I tried communicating with him and tried to understand something from him, but he refuses to dialogue and only wants to make fun of me because i'm a Bored Again, or because i'm young, or because i'm stupid, whatever. He doesn't try; he gave up on lots of people and he 'riles them up' all in the name of children.
: I think that Fred has done something for the children. He educates people about our community through his art... and you know the phrase "out of sight, out of mind". Well, right now we are out of sight, but in the future, if people know who and what we are, the likelihood of our people getting slaughtered is lessened... also, in the present, I know that he has donated many pieces to the AAS, which is helping our people now. Whether or not those pieces are on somebody's desk, or if they were sold and the money donated to the children, I'm not sure.
: In a nutshell,
