    I think maybe you are committing the same sin of which you accuse us, although there is now no reason to fight.  

    Your signature line is a personal insult and I don't think that most who were truly against Obama's FISA vote (and not just here to stir up trouble) were directing personal attacks at him.  For purely selfish reasons, we wanted Obama to live up to his potential.

    To be honest, it pisses me off every time I see that in your signature line and I guess I don't understand why you would want to alienate so many with it.

    Others'MMV,though.

      You know, I want you to understand that the outrage isn't really one-sided. I mean, I hope you can see that.

      I am still mad over the way the FISA fight was fought. My signature is still accurate.  I am not TRYING to alienate anyone. But I spent several hellish weeks fighting with folks on this site. And I'm still pissed over it. If I at some point stopped being pissed, then I will change my signature.

      But you know, I am still pretty upset over it, and it certainly still applies.

        You're doing everything you can to perpetuate the problem, while at the same time decrying it.  If there were somebody on "the other side" of the debate who had a similar sig, you'd be apoplectic, and accuse them of reviving the division.

        Please, just take out the parenthetical. You'll still make your point without an over the top insult. You aren't the only angry person here. The objective is to let things cool and reform around the candidate. You want Obama to win, right?
