long history of attacking others on the yahoo boards

Or on Seeking Alpha for that matter in response to an article on Berkshire's float that I don't really agree with but didn't deserve this response:

I think I got off easy in comparison.

In the past 4+ years, I only recall one similar experience with a guy who really went to bat for David Sokol after I posted a number of articles regarding the inconsistency between Sokol's statements on Lubrizol on CNBC and the subsequent information contained in the Lubrizol proxy. Of course, the person was anonymous.

It is interesting how the people who are most vocal and indulge in the most personal of attacks remain anonymous themselves even when their target is not anonymous. Obviously, I am not anonymous although I do use a screen name here. When someone is attacking me and purposely and repeatedly using my real name rather than my screen name, that takes on an even more ominous feel. People hiding behind anonymity can say anything they want without consequence. In comparison, those of us who are (by choice) not anonymous have to live with the consequences of our behavior.

Anyway, enough virtual ink has been spilled on this.
