  •  If someone posted a diary (11+ / 0-)

    suggesting that US neighborhoods should be racially segregated, that diary wouldn't be received well either. This isn't about an innocuous or trivial issue, it is about a government which the US pays dearly to support insulting the American Vice President, and trampling on the human rights of a people.

    •  I seem to recall (5+ / 0-)

      that there are about 1.5 million non-Jews living in Israel.

      There aren't 1.5 million non-Arabs in Saudi Arabia.

      Talk about segregated!

      Tell you what, see what happens in many countries when you try to change religion- and then have the nerve to tell me that isn't the most horrific form of segregation and religious intolerance imaginable.

      That is no joke.

      •  Oh bullshit. (7+ / 0-)

        You said all diaries, however tastless and offensive should be treated equally. Offensiveness and bigotry cause anger here, don't act surprised by it.

        •  If I might ask (0+ / 0-)

          What on earth does your reply have to do with my post?

          You seem to have avoided the topic completely- that is typical for people who have noting of any merit to add.

          •  We were engaged in a (7+ / 0-)

            discussion and you changed the subject. My reply was on point, I have no interest in debating Saudi policy. Use the straw men on someone else.

            •  Wow, I changed the subject. (2+ / 0-)

              So the subject of the diary is segregation?  

              YOU CHANGED THE SUBJECT, not me.  So don't go high and mighty when you go totally OT and then refuse to answer when I do the same.

              •  Maybe you didn't argue that all (4+ / 0-)

                dairies are equal and those who don't like a particular one, however offensive, should just ignore it. Silly me.

                So everything else is cool to joke about (2+ / 0-)

                But this isn't?

                There are so many diaries in this place about nothing.  Dozens of pet diaries, photo stuff, political parodies and they don't get this level of barrage.

                And that is why there are people who are seriously screwed up.  If you can't IGNORE what you don't like, if you feel the need to attack a snark diary, you haven't got anything in your life worth living for.

                  or just horrifically argumentative.

                  Judging by this diary, I'd say both!

                  •  Thank you (4+ / 0-)

                    For proving to the world just how much of a dip you are.

                    If people are sincere about the rules, you deserve some donuts.

                    •  I called you illiterate and argumentative (1+ / 0-)

                      That's not like being called an "asshole", such as you called me.

                      If you said stuff like that to people in the real world, you'd be missing teeth.

                      But you seem to have no problem justifying your position.  Maybe you should think about this- what you did was unjustifiable and frankly borderline immoral.

                      •  Now you're debating (7+ / 0-)

                        the qualitative difference in the insults we've traded?

                        Well, I think illiterate is worse than asshole.
                        Since you an argumentative asshole, we can call the argumentative point a wash. Your belief that what you charge is superior to every other view anyone else holds is irrelevant to me.

                        You don't justify Israeli inhumanity, you simply point to other examples of inhumanity, as if that makes it right. Using your "logic" the Germany could justify the Holocaust by siting the Armenian Genocide, "Hey, the Turks did it and got away with it. Why is everyone so pissed at us?"

                        We're done here. This is the War of the Flea. You don't give a fuck about my opinion regarding the status of Palestinians as humans deserving of rights, and I don't give a fuck about how funny you think it is that they suffer at the whim of Israel.

                      •  Let's just look at the facts of this thread, (9+ / 0-)

                        to see who started and escalated the insults.

                        In the first two comments (one from each of you), though you're already saying "Some people, are seriously fucked in the head", it looks like you are both speaking broadly.

                        In the next two comments you're getting personal, as your "there are people who are seriously screwed up.  If you can't IGNORE what you don't like, if you feel the need to attack a snark diary, you haven't got anything in your life worth living for.", while still stated in general terms, clearly applies to lgcap, who is attacking this snark diary. Still nothing personal or insulting from lgcap.

                        In the next comments, lgcap says "Oh bullshit", and explains why. And then you come back with "You seem to have avoided the topic completely- that is typical for people who have noting of any merit to add."

                        Your comments weren't picking holes in lgcap's arguments - they were personal insults. It took several more steps to get to asshole, but the debate wouldn't have gone there if you, Dcoronata, hadn't been so belligerent and condescending from the start.

                          I appreciate your dissection of the thread.

                        •  Logical flaw (0+ / 0-)

                          It wasn't clearly about him, it was an amplification of a statement I'd made which he answered.

                          How you can draw this conclusion is puzzling- I was speaking in generalities, not in any way about him.

                          Then he got pissed because I went off-topic, which was what he had done long before that.

                          You think he won the argument, but it wasn't an argument at all; he misquoted and attempted to put words in my mouth, and I danced rings around him.  Then when he lost control (which I'll readily admit I made him do because it was so damned easy!) I simply hammered the point home.

                          It was fun pointing out how hilariously stupid this was- and showing how there is no sense of humor for so many people.

                          Including this diarist.

        •  And one more (0+ / 0-)

          Did I say that, or is it that in your rather odd way, you think I said that, when I didn't.

          Kindly show me where I said this- be specific, and try to show an exact quote.

              And since this is not my diary, you must have been talking to me.

              Damn, you were SO SPECIFICALLY talking to me dude, here's the direct quote:

              You said all diaries, however tastless and offensive should be treated equally.

              Now either prove it, or apologize.

              Either way, you aren't looking very good here.
