    As you noticed, there were many posters who tried in a very civil fashion to communicate with this diarist.  It didn't work.

    actually she seemed more responsive to those who were civil, surprise surprise.

    As to the rest, I think there is no more good coming from continuing this.

    •  Responsive? (0+ / 0-)

      Both McJoan and Elise practically tore their hair out trying to give this diarist the benefit of the doubt.  In return ... nothing.  I don't know what you mean by responsive.  She continued to stick to her story no matter how people responded to her, even when the facts of what she said were debunked.

      You can see by my posts that I am not a name caller, I don't use profanity, all that jazz.  I have no problem with being civil.  I think where we disagree is that I believe we need to fight back when attacked and not suffer fools.  I found this diarist's post to first be foolish and then, when she did not retract her obvious mistakes, to be an attack.  I don't know what it would take you see it that way or whether or not you agreed with the substance of what she said.

      Civility has its place.  But so does fighting back, calling a spade a spade, and outright rejecting hypocritical, factually incorrect and divisive rhetoric.
