thank you Ed, you just proved my point.


You are as good an example as any.


if you are ever around a corporate envioronment for any length of

time, you will hear suits spouting a lot of "battlefield" jargon;


like "Lock and Load!!" before making a presentation

Or "Incoming!!" as a decision is being handed down.


if you will notice, the people who use that jargon are never actual

combat veterans. they are invariably wannabes, with fragile egos

that they try to protect with empty bluster and transparent attempts

at intimidation.


you will almost never hear a combat veteran use this type of jargon,

or use gruesome metaphors, because death and brutality have real,

tangible meanings to them, and are not spoken of lightly.


the spurious threats that I've seen come from the holocaustals seems

to originate with the same mental processes that cause spammers to

threaten legal action.


You know they will never follow through with it. They lack the true

resources needed. (I'll let you figure that out)


Those of us who are actually capable of such actions don't waste time

with threats.
