If you claim you enjoy fighting, or watching people fight

Uh, you are twisting words. Neither of us claimed to enjoy fighting or watching people fight.

But it seems to me that when things get too emotional the level of discussion becomes less productive.

And it seems to me that things tend to get more emotional when people twist words and mischaracterize another poster's views. You are contributing to the very problem you are complaining about!

I thought you had an interesting view on dividends, and I would enjoy hearing more of it. I recommended several of your posts. I did disagree with you on one aspect, but I don't want to "fight" over it, so I'll keep my thought to myself. Stop being so sensitive. You had lots of people in your corner. Now you are working on alienating them. Sigh.
