    It is impossible to have a real debate when you call the other party, say, "batshit insane." At that point, you're not engaging in debate, you're just engaging in a pissing match. And while that may be fun for you, it isn't fun for anyone else. So maintain a sense of decorum. There are plenty of people on the site who avoid HRs despite engaging in the most contentious topics. It can be done. Just be courteous and stick to the facts.
    a personal insult and mockery it shows a pretty thin skin.

    Since you don't provide links I am assuming that is a comment Hamden made.

    And again, I ask you: Who is this "group"?
    Where is evidence to back up your claim that people who rec your diaries are being harassed?

    As I said before I am not the first person to ask you to back up these claims, but yet I've haven't seen you do so.

    •  You have cut Ray to the quick with this diary. (0+ / 0-)

      Not saying that anything you posted was wrong, but I think you wounded him quite seriously.

      Does DBAD apply?  Is DBAD a useful rule?  I don't know, but this seems a lot like stalking to me.

      If he could laugh at himself, this would be fine -- heck, I can see (in my mind's eye) a comeback diary in the mode of Dood Abides written by Ray that would show how he was right every step of the way and it was his shining the light on things that prevented them from coming to pass!  (Kind of like that reporter in Best Little Whorehouse in Texas - Dom Deluise)

      You are technically right.  But you got awfully personal with someone who can't handle that.  (Not sure how many of us could without going nuclear.)

      Congratulations, you just used a 5-lb sledgehammer on poor Ray.  Try for cartoon weaponry next time.

      Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
