    I don't recall writing any comments or diaries mocking centrists or Obama supporters as stupid, naive, or anything else, nor do I recall writing in support of same.  Pretty sure you can't say the reverse.

    •  I remind you of our last exchange (0+ / 0-)

      when you endorsed a particularly nasty, insulting comment directed toward me personally. When I objected, you doubled down on it.

      I doubt that you could point to any place where said anything remotely as abusive. Nor have I ever justified such personal assaults as you did.

      So yes, i can say the reverse.

      •  as I explained (0+ / 0-)

        that was a snark about the tone of the entire diary. I was responding to a comment where someone had said they'd said something insulting (which I actually didn't ever see). However, after having that explained clearly, you decided to willfully be insulted by something that wasn't even directed at you.  So, no, really, you can't

        •  What? (0+ / 0-)

          You cheered on a personal insult directed at me that you admit you didn't bother to read and that's suppose to make me wrong for objecting?

          All I can say is that if I'd done the same thing, I would have owned it as my mistake at the time. I certainly wouldn't blame you for my error.

          •  oh, crikey (0+ / 0-)

            Look, I'm sorry if it sounded like I was egging whoever it was on.  However, if you will look back at that thread, you'll see I wasn't.  In fact you will see that I didn't even respond to which ever thread you were insulted in, and in fact, I can't find iwhatever the putative insult was.  

            However, as I said before, the comment was a snark referring to how much insult was going around that diary in general, and had nothing to do with you whatsoever.  You know, sometimes it isn't about you.  I can't really do much if you choose to misinterpret things, except explain how you misunderstood.

            •  Okay, I accept that it was all a misunderstanding (0+ / 0-)

              Just so you won't think I'm completely off the wall and in the interest of clarity here's a link.

              If you look at the third comment from the top you'll find the insult referred to. I think you'll understand why I reacted the way I did.

              This certainly does cast a light on how these exchanges can get way out of hand. My apologies for having misjudged your intent.

                I hadn't seem that. Makes sense now.

                Likewise!
