    I recently posted a question concerning a contentious OP, which the forum moderator has since removed.
    FMF typically replied not by answering the question but by a gratuitous insult and an attempt to change the subject. Since he once evaded answering someone else's post by telling him "I have travelled the world, man" one must assume that he considers he 'knows it all', and that any other answer to a direct question is superfluous.

    He did answer your question -- just not to your satisfaction. But the removal of the thread shows the assumption that motivated your question to be false, so the point is moot.

    The obvious reason, except to oddballs like you and FMF, for the removal of the thread was that the forum moderator thought it unacceptable, thus answering my question by removing the cause of it.
    FMF did not answer the question anymore than you did.

    But isn't a better question ' why should I answer the question "What is the great Mariano Rivera's uniform number?" ? '

    In what way is that not not failing to answer the question?

    What makes you think I haven't answered the question?

    simple answer, because he (or she) is an impertinent troll.

    But don't we both already know the answer to the question?

    Does it bother you that I want to know?

    Why are you personalizing the question?
