So? Spoon feeders and others who seem unwilling or unable to ignore
Nikos's cravings for attention are a problem for me and others who
get frustrated by it. I don't see much people care about that. So
why should I care about other people's problem? I always get requests
to care about the problem of others but I don't see much consideration
for the problems I and those like me experience.

So? if it was all right for others to blow life into this thread,
then why is it wrong if I would keep it alive?

And for your information, IMO I'm not keeping it alive for now.
At this moment all those who are eager to argue me into behaving
as they would prefer seem more responsible for keeping it alive
than me.

I'm not responsible for your memory Steven.

That is your perogative.
