To call someone's wife a cum-guzzling whore when you don't actually KNOW the person or his wife isn't a personal insult or a personal attack. It might be rude, it might be childish, and it might be over whatever line this forum wishes to draw, but it's not a personal insult or a personal attack.
I agree. It's silly to get upset when a person says something disparaging about someone they don't even know. In the case of Zach and pete, did anyone actually believe Zach was serious (about pete's wife) or had any knowledge of pete's wife at all? Of course not. In any event, Zach's male prostitute, meth-junkie boyfriend told me that Zach doesn't even know pete's wife.
