    what I was trying to say, that all diarists aquire followings. Heck, I follow people. I think the answer is that there probably is not a good place for me in Ray's diary discussions and maybe I should just read silently.

    •  or you could keep commenting (2+ / 0-)

      and wait for Ray to request that you voluntarily stop commenting, as he just did to me.

        will just "pre" honor the non given request. My idea of engagement and dialogue and Ray's are clearly very different now that I have dared to show mild disagreement and  mild critique it is clear that I have been put in a "camp" with the unsavory types and I will be accused of one of the two favorite memes that pop up with Ray. I am sure my quality of life will remain unaltered if I volunteer myself out. There is no shortage of interesting diaries to read here.

          my character is going to fail.  Everybody can see the handful of people trying desperately; it's so bizarre that is actually sloppy.

          It's very simple: I encourage you to follow the site guidelines when you comment in my diaries.  Avoid insults, innuendo about personal negative character traits, and fallacies.

          I put a proposition forward, and if you don't agree, make your case, put forward a cogent counter-argument, and I'll be glad to engage.

          •  Ray, would you be so kind as to suggest one or two (0+ / 0-)

            counter-arguments on the subject of this diary that you would not see as "purposely(sic) maligning" you?

            I would be delighted if at the end of each diary you would include those arguments to which you would be willing to respond on their merits. At this point I find it extremely difficult to imagine a not wholly positive response to which you would not reply negatively, so a list of those would be very much appreciated.

            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.)
