    ..."I-don't-care-what-they-say-about-my-website-as-long-as-they-spell-the-URL-properly" riff...

    When, in the five years that Motley Moose has been in existence have I stated anything anywhere that's derogatory about the grand ole' Moose website? I have had my truly trivial little tiffs with individual mooseketeers; and I have been the subject of trivial, ill-formed, moose mockery--just a handful of times over the years at the MM site and here--behind my back.  But, again: When, in the five years that Motley Moose has been in existence have I stated anything anywhere that's derogatory about the grand ole' Moose? Anything I've had to say I've stated to your/their antlers...er....ummm...face.

    That being said, and since we're on the subject, the holier-moose-than-thou routine gets just a wee bit hypocritical, given my unstated observations of certain Moose-in-glass-houses throwing stones...and all that.

      ...Moose website registrations for every contentious comment I fling in this thread! (Polarization of political web communities being what it is, and such.) And, add an extra .333 registrations for every four-letter word I include in this thread, above and beyond that.

      If you will note, Bob, my initial reply was not to you. Ergo, my 'Moose talk' was not directed your way, or in response to you.

      We've never had any 'beef' that I can recall...and, tbh, I thought I was bein' cheeky in my reply to you.

      So holster yer guns, pardner.  :)

      (not for nothin', I think it is denizens of another blog that demand that it always be linked to when referred to)

      PS - I'm comfortable with throwin' stones when the fancy strikes me...all my windows are already broken! That having been said, I don't think I threw any stones?

      Cheers!

      Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.

        ...but, your replies to me were to me, or something like that. I've been smirking and grinning as I've been writing every comment in this thread. (I really am a snarky bastard at heart.)

      I resent and reject your accusation that I linked to a Moose diary in order to advertise it, or encourage any inter-blog flame wars.

      The only reason I linked to Shaun's recent piece (and not the old post you cite) was it was the best summation of the UN gamesmanship over chemical weapons. That's it. Plain and simple. Though I have noted cross postings before, this is one of the rare times in dozens of diaries I've cited a Moose diary in the body of any Kos diary.

      I did that because it furthered the debate about Syria: no more, no less.

      So I'd like you to retract the advertising allegation. Nobody makes any money out of traffic on the Moose. We explicitly reject blog wars and reprimand comments about other individuals on other blogs

      This smear is out of character, Bob. Please reconsider.
