You might want to consider how (B) applies to you and others here.
What (B) is actually saying is that if you start shit, don't be surprised if you get worse shit back. The entire purpose of this site, Panda's Thumb, and Pharyngula is to start shit.
That may or may not be, but I'm going to end it.
Some of us have jobs and cannot get here all the time to baby-sit.
If you want to end up on the BW from now on, you'll get your wish.
Which came first: the shimmy, or the hip?
