    sorry to see that we seem to be at odds over the Syria situation and the contretemps about Ray Pensador, although we're usually allies.

    I tremendously appreciate the way you stood up for me during the The Nephew debacle.

    But please let me pick a nit: this diary and its thread really don't amount to talking behind anybody's back.  Pensador is in the thread.  He couldn't help but notice the diary.

    •  Well yes, this diary is all about him (2+ / 0-)

      But the one that I believe Phil is talking about is the one I linked to in my comment. That one wasn't about Ray at all.

      What I'm kind of surprised about is that no one has commented on the mental health insults being lobbed. Even if you loathe Ray, surely nobody thinks that's okay?

        comment, as I'm sure many others decided as well.

        This is not cowardice.  I'm genuinely conflicted about how to respond.

          ...had some duty to respond. Since I posted that right to your comment, it certainly seemed like I was telling you that you needed to. Really, I just wondered if anybody really even considered it. You definitely don't have any responsibility to say anything about it.

      S/he has it exactly right. I've made no comments about Ray Pensador, by the way, other to maintain my long-held dislike for talking about other Kossacks when they aren't around to defend themselves. That goes for anyone.

      And no worries; I've been disagreed with before and lived to tell the tale!

      When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...
