      stop trying to blame others for provoking you. You have a choice regarding how you decide to interact in this forum.

      I am perfectly happy with my original comment. In fact, my warning about the predictable response was born out to a T. Unfortunately.

      •  At no point have I whined about you provoking me (0+ / 0-)

        So stop with the continuing projection.

        In fact, it could have been a decent exercise in discussion if you weren't so smug and quick to cut people down.

            My opinion has already been stated that you led out in that opening comment with a brusqueness that diminished the possibility for developing discourse.

            Perhaps you should write your own diary and develop the ideas there.
