What attitude I share is annoyance at some people's predilection for always making others wrong. It's like a hobby with you, sheila. For cryin' out loud, can't you stifle yourself?!

Catherine, when you add together the many many posters on this board, the Cancer Treatment & Prevention board, the Health & Nutrition board, the Retirement board (and I wouldn't be surprised if there are others as well) who find many of your posts filled with continued errors, and find your attitude in various ways untenable -- I am merely one of a long and distinguished list. You have set off MANY heated exchanges with MANY other posters, and are now ignored by quite a number of them. Unfortunately, when someone disagrees with you, you mount an attack--with a barrage of links and endless paste-ins, and sarcasm and sniping--instead of simply saying that whatever the cited facts or point of view, you hold to your convictions, and leave it at that.

It doesn't penetrate, does it, that you are the only person I have this problem with. And you have these unfortunate clashes with a significant number of other posters.

I have no predilection for making others appear wrong. My standards are accuracy, honesty, and tolerance. And this is where you and I part ways.

I have asked you before, I asked again yesterday, and I ask again now -- please stop the attacks. And I will add a request to stop acting as cheerleader when you see it in someone else.
