    •  Are you talking about my comment? Or... (4+ / 0-)

      ...the comment to which I'm responding--which IS a jibe--which is from a Kossack that's been regularly trolling and and h.r.'ing my posts and comments in this community for many years? (We're talking an easy 100-200 comments like this, with this being one of the nicer ones--with almost as many h.r.'s from this Kossack--in my posts, memorialized for the entire community to see.) In other words, I'm responding to an absurdly inaccurate comment. And, Part II of this post, coming up in a few moments, responds to this statement better than anything I ever could fit in a comment here.

        If you think he's trolling, why are you playing into his game by responding in kind?

        I'm aware that there's a lot of bad blood here but it hardly matters to those concerned about substantive issues. Replying to perceived sniping with further sniping just forwards distraction and diversion.

          ...to try to avoid comments like this. So, you're right. Period. Full stop!  :-)

    •  It's an observation (0+ / 0-)

      That "growing scandal" is perhaps not an accurate way to describe a news event which seems to be ebbing in the public eye and which has not caused any loss of public confidence.
