  •  Punishment? (1+ / 0-)

    You seem very defensive in that you seem to see punishment around almost every corner of a conversation.

    What's up with that reflexive defensiveness?

    •  It would be a burden, and a worthless one. (0+ / 0-)

      Care to address that argument, or is the ad hominem a sign that you concede the point?

      •  Neo, a little clarity seems in order. (1+ / 0-)

        Further, Neo, I confess also, too, that I have a personal weakness. I tend to become very condescending when confronted by ankle biters in gun diaries. It's extremely difficult to insult or intimidate me and I'll admit I can at times really dish it out. I can take it too, so if you think you're winning an argument here, please proceed.

        Here's my farewell advice to you, dear Neo: If you think something I write is unclear your first shot better be your best shot, because I'll respond only if: a) the request is made in good faith and appears genuine b) I agree that there was vagueness or confusing language, or an error in my prior comment.

        If you insist on following me around making inane demands and posting silly questions, well, I reserve the right to mock the shit out of you.

        Or not!

        I believe too strongly in the importance of the legitimate right to keep and bear arms, to set aside the usefulness of humor to diffuse obnoxious and idiotic commenting behavior, such as you have posted in this diary...

        •  So you concede the point then. (0+ / 0-)

          A concession that admittedly drips with condescension, but to summarize:

          When confronted with the costs associated with a chemical registry of individual rounds, and said registry's ineffectiveness at reducing crime (due to the ease of self-loading rounds) you had no response but the tortured refrain that I was bothering you, and you couldn't be bothered to defend yourself. Never did I resort to insult or logical fallacy, but you partook of both fruits. Sound about right?

          •  No (0+ / 0-)

            No, you just turned them off to the idea of talking to you. Why should they bother? It's obvious you're not going to listen to rebuttals to your assertions.

            •  Not listen? Why wouldn't I listen? (0+ / 0-)

              I've been listening, and responding, this entire thread.

              I've responded to each argument that's been presented, and I've challenged them with my rebuttals. Rather than respond, the above user conceded the point and left.
