I personally DO understand ALL the points and read all your posts on here...they are well said HOWEVER I still do not agree....its NOT that I do NOT understand it ...it is that I do not AGREE and with that...I guess, I find what you call persistance is what feels like you are trying to change our minds.."our" being those of us who keep repeating ourselves to get across that we do not agree...**not see..but agree**....at least thats my view...Dr Bob could make a fun board called the T lovers gated community and I still would NOT join NOT because I do not SEE ALL SIDES...but because having SEEN them I still find it appauling. Frankly we have all said more about this than Bob.

Being able to see them from another angle doesn't oblige you to change your mind on whether you want small boards or not. It doesn't require one to give up ones basic morals. But some people are determined that *it really is a rabbit* and that is the end of the story.
