Who said that? My lack of sympathy is part and parcel of it. I don't
feel any sympathy for a broken piece of glass either. It's in its
nature to break.

I'm not trying to trick you into anything. If you're going to
present a viewpoint, then I can hardly see what's wrong with
presenting an opposing one. And just refusing to consider the
foundations of your argument seems a bit contrary to the research
principles mud-dev is founded on.
