    about this, my first comment:

    "the far-Left culture of Seattle"? (1+ / 1-)

    This diary is a bit over the top. You saw something stupid and lying on FaceBook? And it surprised you?

    Or my second:
    By the way - Snopes debunked this in 2004. (1+ / 0-)
    There is absolutely nothing inapropriate about htose comments. What I got in return was actually kind of unpleasant. But hey - there ya go.
    •  No good deed, etc. (6+ / 0-)

      I was focusing on the HRed ones, which didn't include the snopes comment. Grizzard is a relatively new user and sometimes newer users are amenable to rethinking their HR strategies. That's the only reason I entered this p'ing match, knowing that you're more than capable of holding your own against a few random HRs.

      And now I'll leave you to it.

    •  I think people (5+ / 0-)

      see you as being disruptive now and the fact that you persist in keeping it up just makes folk pile on.  You may want to stop while you are behind.  Just sayin'.

    •  There's a thin line (2+ / 0-)

      between attacking what someone said, and attacking the person saying it. You stepped on that line, if you didn't actually cross it, when you wrote:

      You saw something stupid and lying on FaceBook? And it surprised you?
      I don't know how you intended these words. But I think it's a pretty good bet that many readers, quite possibly most readers, read this as a thinly-disguised insult. By asking, essentially rhetorically, "And it surprised you?" you can convey pretty much the same semantic content as if you were calling the diarist naive, only not quite as directly.

      Calling the diarist naive is kind of dickish, imho. If that's not what you meant to imply, you can try restating it, and maybe even apologize. It's your call.

      Let us all have the strength to see the humanity in our enemies, and the courage to let them see the humanity in ourselves.
