This will be a nice thread; so I solemnly swear. In addition, I apologize to Djimbe and the moderators for whatever nastiness I produced or provoked.
Here,I will put together a cohesive summation of my conditioning creed and, Djimbe, you can have the last word. However, for the sake of others who might actually want to get something out of it (other than us), do not quote me at length nor refute me line by line (I'll also refrain). Treat it as if you were speaking first without the clutter of any assumptions about me, and I'll do likewise. Agreed?
