So let me get this straight--"mature standards of conduct"
mean that when you want to be rude and insulting you should
use pompous language to hide it instead of plain English?
I'll take a good old honest plainly-understood "fuck you"
over a "your adolescent narcissism is exemplary of the
mediocrity of American culture" any day.
P.S. you can't blame my narcissism on adolescence--my bald
spot is older than some posters here.
