    another poster using an obscenity without cause.

    It's exactly the kind of comment that would be HR'd if the other poster had made it.

    •  Actually, (0+ / 0-)

      substitute "asshole" for "dick" and that's pretty much exactly what I said to mbayrob. So I said "don't be an asshole", and you HRed me for it while saying "don't be a dick". Consider how stupid that is.

      I'd rather save them for gross abuses; they're more effective when used sparingly.  Low-level dickishness (whether in the service of a good cause or not) is its own reward (via what other people think). Just imo/fwiw ... your use may well be within site norms.  But on to more important things... rainbows and butterflies to all concerned.
