A comment on your grammar:

    The word is spelled killjoy. Note that I spelled it correctly
    in my post.

    The word is spelled too.

    The word is spelled might. A mite is a small bug.

    "Next" is a subordinating phrase and should be followed by a comma.

    > An employer hires you placing 

    You're missing a preposition or an auxiliary verb.

    Extended appositives should follow a colon or a dash. A semicolon
    separates independent clauses or items in a list.

    > As far as the comments on this list I'm 

    Place a comma after the subordinating phrase, which starts with "As"
    and ends with "list."

I offered Casey advice. You attacked him. I find it distasteful that you
used some of the same words I used -- even if you couldn't spell them or
put them in grammatical sentences. I resent the implication of
association between us.

I try to ignore your posts.  Please, I beg of you, try to ignore mine.

Thank you,
