    Why should I trust anyone with a tag such as, umm, DHinMI on matters of history and Italy?

    Vico, you raised a few good points. You don't deserve abuse.

      Look up "Vico" and maybe you'd realize I was joking with him, as he joked downthread with me.

      •  Okay, I'll go find clues (0+ / 0-)

        Because, I'm obviously clueless.

        From Wiki:

        Vico or de Vico may refer to:

        Francesco de Vico, Italian astronomer.
        Giambattista Vico, Italian philosopher, historian, and jurist.
        Vico, Corse-du-Sud, a French commune.
        Vico C, a puertorican rapper
        Lake Vico, a lake in northern Lazio, Italy
        De Vico, a lunar crater named after Francesco de Vico.
        Vi-Co, Saskatchewan, Canada slang term (formerly a brand name) for chocolate milk

        Oh, I see, you are assuming he's Italian? Or, French? Or, that he's a Puerto Rican rapper, or, best of all, that he is chocolate milk (my first thought, being from Western Canada).

        I love's chocolate milk.

        I guess my mistake is that I didn't assume he is Italian. Shame on me!

        Honestly, this thread led me only this far (I enjoy reading sophistry and the comments that arise from it). I wasn't that interested in it to go looking down thread for your "jokes' with Vico. Sorry.

        Your response appeared to be rather condescending and that is what I called you on.

          ...who is either laughing or not laughing?

            were offended or hurt in other ways. That is why I came to the defense of Vico.

              No defense needed. Vico was offering his support to DH, and DH was propping up Vico by pointing to his (Vico's) Italian name as evidence of Vico's authority in the matter.

              You might want to go wash that egg off your face ;-)

              Damn George Bush! Damn everyone that won't damn George Bush! Damn every one that won't put lights in his window and sit up all night damning George Bush!

            •  To clarify, (0+ / 0-)

              I named myself in honor of the Italian philosopher of history, and I received DHinMI's comment in the spirit in which it was intended. And yes, I had a little fun with him downthread.
