Re: Departing from the prevailing winds of hysteria, a forum commentary

As right as you may be, I think that oftentimes, things are a lot simpler.

Some folks own trophy gear because owning it boosts their self esteem and cost is often the sole criterion used to qualify as a trophy. The close association between the item's perceivedvalue and the owner's sense of self worth promote a disproportionate level of discomfort when theactualvalue is brought into question. It is interpreted as a personal slight.

I have read through the entire thread and was entertained by the banter and the convictions espoused by the various respondents,  This esoteric discussion however, has led to the an opinion that we are fast becoming insane in our endless pursuits for achieve our relative definition of perfection. So without further adieu:

To all - Please refrain from exacting any further hyperbolic generalizations and accept that, whatever universal lens supremacy is being proffered, thread participants are unwittingly caricaturized - if only by association - by further expounding the magnitude of performance (of lack thereof), visible only to, and appreciated only by, the same class of zealots that are intentionally marginalized by reference to the initial (intentional) spurious proclamation.

Precariously then, we tread, deeper into unchartered waters, unexplored by those who dare not follow, and the further we delve, the more departed we become, as we intentionally distance ourselves from the place we once were firmly grounded until we disappear into the abyss, with our vessels no longer appreciably viewed from the shore, whilst we bash our fellow travelers and feast or their vacuous remains.
