1. Again, I think it's obvious that I CARE.

2. I'm not talking about your "twang" or your accent, if you will. I'm talking about the choice of terms utilized to describe a specific action. Simply put, avoid and ignore are not synonymous and they never will be, and your southern twang doesn't have jack to do with that...

3. I'm proud to be southern myself, but not so proud of billyjoebob just throwing words together and expecting the reader to decipher what he means because they are supposed to be uneducated hillbillies too.
