her objectively. But when I respond to posts on the internet, I might
be more likely to pick on Kwan for more inconsequential things (play
devil's advocate) because some of her fans are so irritating.
generally at least one person who'll use this kind of admission to
"prove" that they are more highly evolved than I am.

more likely I am to be able to view each skater and each performance
without pre-bias. Rather than boast about my intellectual or m***
superiority, I find it more expedient to accept my many flaws and try to
get ride of them... ;^)
By the way, you'll be happy to know that I was *** off a response
full of righteous indignation to your post about "theatrical" skating
when my computer crashed. When it all evaporated, I was made keenly
aware that it wasn't all that important anyway.
