No, I wasn't looking for that quote. Why would you think you know better than me?
No need for hositility. No need to show your mental prowess. I am Swedish, not stupid. Please take it not that I am lazy, but understand that you are not always clear.

There is a saying in Swedish called självdistans, something you lack, literally translated to self-distance. Something about not being so attached to yourself you can't laugh at yourself or have self-critic.

So, you do not welcome discussions with people in The Family, but think this site is the exclusive exmember club? The rules and guidelines tell something else. I for one welcome discussions.

Your idea fits another smart Swedish saying for those over convinced in their own superiority: "Sällskap for inbördes beundran" meaning mutual admiration society, in other words a place to sit around and kiss each others' ass.

And here is an American saying since you are so Anglo superior: You got issues, bro!
