I propose a new word to describe the propensity to discuss economics/politics inside a completely unrelated conversation.......
I would imagine your barb was directed towards my posts. My posts were in response to an idiotic jab cloaked as a pearl of wisdom. Something, given your comment, you appear to have a familiarity with.
Speaking of propensity, I note from your comment in this thread and others your propensity of sitting in judgement of what is relevant to the particular thread. Given this propensity I think you should volunteer your services as a moderator for this forum. I for one would give it all the backing it deserves.
