    of my reading of Pluto's comment, unless of course you believe Swift actually intended for people to eat children?

      Pluto's comment was highly inappropriate.

      The diary talked about putting down dogs, and Pluto used the same terminology to say that Americans should be put down. If its a joke, its certainly in  horrible taste. If its a literary metaphor, its in horrible taste. The comment should have been hidden for that alone, if not for the way Pluto hijacked the entire diary from the very top and then persisted and persisted in his/her hijacking.

      Diarist was very polite and calm through all of that, which was remarkable. But, the his/her diary has been totally trashed. That was plain wrong.

        For no better reason.

        The dogs were tools used to murder kids.  Our politicians use our military to murder kids.

        It's as nuts to propose putting down dogs for doing what they're told to do as to propose putting down drone pilots, not because drone pilots are animals but because it's those giving the orders (and those who support them) who are responsible for the brutally mutilated children.

        That's what your feigned offense is 100% about.  Pluto clearly and accurately drawing a parallel between all those who think snuffing kids is just part of the cost of nation states going about their business.

        You don't think he was "calling for" anyone to attack Americans.  That was, and is, a dishonest claim you made in the hope Elfling would punish him for offending you.

        He drew a clear equation between child killers.  That's all.

        Debate the issues before you instead of crying for the teacher to come save you from the guy who said stuff that challenges your worldview.

      That's the way it is around here. Like the person who tipped the diary that offended Armando and then marched in there to kiss his butt.
