You and I have had this argument on other boards, kelbon

I wasn't going to bring this up. However, as you have, let me just say that it's my opinion that your posts addressed to me on this subject are redundant. As you say we've had similar exchanges elsewhere, so why would you want to get into it yet again? The only logical explanation is that you are trying to put the cat amongst the pigeons on this board too. Why? I have no idea, but no one else on this board had, to date, complained about my style, but it seems to be your intention to encourage people to see things your way and sow seeds of discontent. This, I assume, is diametrically opposed to how your employers expect you to conduct yourself, quote: Home Fools, as designated by the icon, expand beyond the role of Welcome Guides by engaging and enriching the discussions. These Home Fools encourage high quality discussions; help maintain a welcome environment for all posters, and post interesting content.

If you do indeed think me "a VERY bright Fool, with lots to offer" why not focus on what it is I have to offer rather than taking umbrage and berating me (yet again) for my style?

As for your out-of-context list of my comments, for instance: "OK, this is idiotic." I did think his comment idiotic, but apparently you think it unacceptable or distasteful to say so. Perhaps you would like me to apologize for my opinion? Well it was my honest opinion and I have every right to express it. Censorship isn't acceptable to me and it shouldn't be acceptable to anyone who participates in this forum either. Again, I urge you to just ignore me if I rub you the wrong way.

You have to be obtuse not to realize that other comments were made in a somewhat flippant manner. Referring to someone as a twit-brain, for instance, especially when it's not directed to them directly, falls very far from being malevolent.

...If paying a tax on money coming your way is something to dislike then perhaps the Tea Party, or worse, is in your future.

Bringing this up again is beneath you. It's been asked and answered. Do you want me to apologize for it a second time?

I thought these two articles wrong-headed and I said so. I addressed numerous specifics, point by point, contained therein in a manner that left no doubt as to my strong opinion, and more importantly, why I had it. If you can't deal with that and find words like twit-brain or idiotic offensive I really think it your problem, if this is really the case then again please just ignore my posts!
