I have about 4-5 people in here that give me personal chit for no reason. They will respond to a benign post with venom about me personally. Everyone here has seen this over the top BS. No big deal to me because if I don't respect you, you can't insult me. But, lurkers read this and go WTF. I'm not posting in there.
I'm in favor of not allowing personal insults. You can call their position stupid, idiotic whatever. But, the getting personal is over the line if you want more people to post in here.
Guilty as charged. I do it because I find your posts, sometimes anyway, to be intellectually dishonest. I truly believe you are much smarter than that. It's like Direckshun, we all know he is a smart guy, misguided and sneaky, but smart nonetheless. I respect the fact that he has the balls to start a thread like this knowing full well how much he is gonna get shit on for it. I see you the same, very smart guy with more wordly knowledge (think geopolitical) than I will ever have, but yet you spew talking points and headline grabs like a robot. I just don't get it.
