  •  That's just a dumb thing to say & you're flirting (2+ / 0-)

    with trouble by doubling down on this idiot "troll" meme.   I'm not the least concerned about my status. I've managed quite well here, for quite a long time thank you very much.

    But by all means

    Do Proceed.

    •  I never called you a troll (0+ / 0-)

      I was trying to say that is what trolls do, come up wit smartalec response rather than address the substance of the matter.

      It is easy to hurl insults and find parts of an argument to make fun of.  It is not a good way to have a real discussion though.

      denig, we have both been around here for a really long time.  I am not a one topic guy, focused on gun proliferation.  I have a whole range of issues that I tend to be slightly more conservative on than the majority here a dkos.  There are other issues that I tend to be much more progressive as well.  I have a great respect for the community here and I understand when people disagree with me.  It's okay.

      You obviously do not want to be called a troll (whether I intended that label or not) and I do not like to be mocked (wether you intended to mock me or not).  All I want is a civil discussion using as much facts, logic and common sense as we can muster.  Name calling and ridicule will not get us anywhere.

      •  What you did was several passive aggresive insults (2+ / 0-)

        towards me. I won't bother to list them. You can reread what you wrote if you'd like to review them. My insult was direct. I was mocking you.

        The way you responded to me was not the more noble. It was insulting. And I agree, it's not a good way to have a discussion.

        I have read you in the past and I can not disagree with your assessment of your postings.

        I stand by my list. I was however too quick  in posting my list as an insult to you.  Had I stopped and paid more attention to whom I was responding, I would have been more questioning and less with the insults.

        •  I agree that my response was insulting as well (3+ / 0-)

          I have taken a lot of heat for my comments but I believe most of them are visceral rejections of the concept as opposed to the merits of my argument.

          I am in favor of gun control.  I am probably more for stringent gun control than many here on this site.  As I have said, I consider this to be like chemotherapy, a solution barely better than the disease.

          I was too quick to bite back.  It is okay for us to disagree but we have to remember that we are probably more alike on most issues than we are different and just because we differ here on this one, we're on the same team.

          Peace!
