    I posted in reply to someone who talked about the disadvantages of voting for Rauner. "Cutting off your nose to spite your face" is an expression used to describe self-destructive behaviour, it doesn't literally mean cut of your nose, etc. And, I replied to a post talking about voting for Rauner in this situation, and I said something about that subject. If you though your posting wasn't about that, then you didn't need to reply. So, why did you reply? Were you just trolling? And what is this nonsense about kleenex? You in high school or sumtin'?
