    diarist is not to TR in their own diary and TBK did not...

    I actually think his response was rather mild considering what the commenter accused him of and he does have a way with words....

        anyone who can come up with unvaccinated corncob has a way with words.

        Considering he was replying to a comment accusing him of supporting the idiot in question in the diary, I would have to disagree with your disagreement......

        I would much rather read a funny FU than the same old stale                                                                                   Troll !!!

          multiple-comment trolls in a similar manner, but this was not the situation in this particular instance, at least as far as I could tell.

          Coming up with cleaver retorts is something I enjoy as well, but that doesn't mean it's always the best way to handle a rogue comment.

          I wouldn't necessarily have replied "I love you, please love my diary, and I'll do anything to convince you of my good intentions" either, but "fuck you" strikes me as a little harsh for a single comment in an otherwise reasonably civil diary.

            of the stuff when this was a smaller community if you want to see nasty.  Armando v1.0 could flay the skin off of an idiot and MaryScott was a master of invective.

            This is but a pale shadow of the dkos of old....another one to ck is DHinMI for some seriously nasty responses to foolish comments.   We are like a Sunday School in comparison.....

              I was reading the original "pie fight" diaries the other day.

              MSOC comes to mind as well.

              I thought the idea was to move away from that kind of discourse.

      the "cordially go fuck yourself with an unvaccinated corncob," I would have agreed and even tipped the comment instead of HRing it.

      Everything else in the comment was spot-on. Adding the rest was just a show of temper, which, in a community striving for civil discourse, is what we try to avoid, I think.
