Now are there any OTHER STUPID ASS QUEZTIONS you need answered. Perhaps I should ask if there's a reason that YOU REFUSED to look up or offer an alternate meaning for either FIRE or METAPHOR?
Are you merely denying facts appearing PRIMA FACIE for a reason?
Is there a reason you NEVER answer a FAIR QUESTION...and instead incessantly ask ridiculous, non sequitir questions irrelevant to the instant matter.
Let me answer. YOU ARE WILLFULLY IGNORANT.

Yes you are deliberate in your Vexatious prosecution - doomed from the start - even though it was.
