There's nothing to explain. You are bombastic in all your posts, dump the mod community overboard because you "don't like them" and act like making some adventures in Spore has turned you into a celebrity.
I'm just going to come out and say it: Pat1196, whoever he is, is bad at running this. He's like the CEO of the company who doesn't know he's putting his foot in his mouth half the time and makes bad PR for everyone.
Your logic is flawed and Didzo is correct. Your statement equates shrinking to obsolete and your follow-up is just to add the word "gradually" to it. You are still saying the same thing. You just added an extra word. You could've said "quickly" and it wouldn't change the meaning, only the timeframe.
If you really wanted to make a point about the possible vestigial nature of the appendix, you could've taken all of five seconds on Wikipedia and followed a link to an actual research paper.
Oh no. Where did that come from? I think it's trying to say something. What's that? The appendix may hold certain important gastrointestinal flora, but is less useful in developed countries? Your point is valid, but how you arrived there is not. You may as well have said "Elephants are getting smaller; that means they are gradually becoming obsolete."
Oh, Didzo's point is also valid. However, he arrived there with facts.
