    That's the same sentiment.  Deny that if you must.

    I do apologize for that other quote.  I was pretty pissed there, and it doesn't represent my true feelings.

    I am making a serious point here, and I'm not just mewling or any of the other insulting things you may want to say to try to get me to go away.  I see the country as dangerously polarized.  I see unyielding, self-righteous demonizing of the other on both sides.  Believe it or not, I'm solidly on your side.  But I don't see how bitterly complaining over victory is going to help much.

    What is most striking to me in this thread is the degree to which so many people have proved my point by demonstrating an utter unwillingness to brook even gentle questioning of their behavior or attitude.  I have turned up the rhetoric as I've met with a stone wall of resistance to even a discussion of the notion that perhaps it's not the wisest thing to condemn a company within hours of getting them to change their policy.  I'm willing to be wrong.  I'm willing to be convinced.  As this interaction has gone forward, I've been more convinced than ever that I'm making an important point here.

    Very ironic that you would call me a purity troll.  Please try to see that.

      I don't see where I used the "t" word, but I can see where it was implied.

      I got a bit on tilt. Thanks for taking the time for a thoughtful reply. Recced.

      •  Thank you for making it possible (0+ / 0-)

        for me to leave this thread with something other than just bad feelings.  Much appreciated.

        PS The phrase "purity troll" just rolled off my tongue.  I am aware that you didn't use the word.  Just imagine my reaction if you had.  :)
