    What's shameful is a bunch of self appointed arbiters of "truth" feeling entitled to engage in insult and verbally abuse of anyone who disagrees, all while condemning the same behavior when it's directed towards themselves.

    Here's a clue: no one is obliged to agree with you, even if you're right and they are wrong. In debate you are obliged to convince others that your views are correct. You won't ever be 100% successful in that effort. Some will always differ.

    Reacting to disagreement by resorting to public abuse and playing favorites simply undermines any effectiveness you might have.

    Nothing human is alien to me.

      or cares what you have to say, specifically after your last few embarrassing diaries. You certainly don't need to be giving advice on etiquette nor should anyone take what you have to say seriously. The should just read the garbage you spewed out.

        No one is talking to you or cares what you have to say,
        A demonstrably false statement, despite your pretense of godlike omniscience.

        Delusions of divinity not withstanding, the fact that you disagree with someone doesn't make their opinions "garbage."

        Nor are you in any position to be dictating to others what they should or shouldn't take seriously.

        Neither are you in any position to describe my diaries as "embarassing", unless they embarrassed you.

        As for etiquette, that's a topic that's clearly beyond your competence.

      diaries due to priceman's comment just above, and I'm grateful to him. Fair, balanced, and generally chuckleworthy.

      I guess we can even learn something from public abuse. ;)

      At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)
