  •  I had one arguing with me yesterday (11+ / 0-)

    Over at firedoglake, this commenter thought the solution was to "ban ammunition" and that would solve the problem, based apparently on the presumption that making ammunition was too complicated for people to do. When I pointed out that those problems have been solved and if one can read and has just mediocre dexterity and some very basic shop equipment, anyone could make their own ammunition, (my brother does and he's all thumbs). This person wanted to pretend that those skills don't exist and I guess that bullets come from magicland or something. It became apparent that having a rational conversation with this person was far less relevant to him than was his being judged to be "right". Same thing at pharyngula. Because I won't respond to some foul mouthed jerk who wouldn't have the guts to curse at me to my face and can't make a point without harsh language, that makes me a "coward". Whatever. I know who I am and I know what they are. I too have bowed out to collect myself before when it became a little intense.
