72. I am gobsmacked myself, because you spent all that effort yelling at me
and excoriating me for VIEWS I DO NOT HOLD.

Jesus. Can no one read?

I guess you missed this part of my post

....am not necessarily advocating for profiling, so please don't start getting on my case...



Not necessariy advocating. Don't start getting on my case.

I also think you can't read a sentence for context. I did not suggest "hat someone who rejects the usefulness of illegal profiling does so only because they are not being honest."

Is English your second language? You completely MISrepresented what I actually said about illegal profiling. The "honesty" is not part of the equation. Substitute the phrase "let's be truthful" for "let's be honest" and try reading it again.

When I talk about "illegal" profiling, I am talking about the profiling that routinely occurs in other countries. Don't start yelling at me for talking about what actually is happening, as though I am a champion of these practices for discussing them.

Your last sentence is completely untrue. Apparently you are unable to have a discussion about a topic without playing Junior Debate Team. When you play the "For" or "Against" game, you lose all the nuance in a conversation.

So....whatever. This was a complete waste of time.
