Wasn't it you that recently started a condescending thread pointing the finger at what you call sanctimonious hypocrites? Your posts degenerated into personal attacks against other members for not agreeing with you. And now you're doing it again.

Do you believe that what you are doing here is not sanctimonious and hypocritical and a waste of energy?
Obviously the truth hit a little too close to home for you.

So OP, why is it okay for you to use resources by posting on the internet but it is not okay for anyone else?
Practice what you are attempting to preach, go to the woods, without electricity, gas, propane, internet, running water, and any other modern convenience.
In six months send a message via pigeon and let us know how you are doing........

What makes you think I'm not using solar?

Also, have you heard of these new things called smartphones?

Just because the phone is smart is no guarantee the user is and.......you are still using resources even if it is solar because those solar panels are not made of natural *green* materials.


You appear to be full of the desire to argue and disparage everyone but yourself even though you are doing/using the same thing.
Bless your heart.


PS ~~ Volvos are ugly vehicles *in my opinion*

I love this.

That said, you're offended and desperate.

With all the rain and clouds you're getting isn't it advisable to conserve your solar for more important things than picking fights on internet?

Nobody needs smart phones, they are an addictive luxury not a necessity, and a danger to the health of everyone who uses them. If you believe that austerity is important you need to get rid of your smart phone and stop using internet.

Yep, I was right the first time.

The truth hits too close to home for you, and you're offended.

Exhibitionists who expose themselves in public to get a reaction are offensive to me.

Interesting that you see so many exhibitionists. I've never seen one. Ever.

You must spend time in "unusual" places.
