With all due respect, I see no point being illustrated. I didn't call
you pansy, and even if I did you know exactly who's calling you a pansy.
I don't want to continue this any further (although feel free to respond
to this, I'm not simply trying to have the last word) but a) you have
NOT been insulted in any way, and b) if your idea of moral and ethical
behaviour is to criticize others whilst hiding behind anonymity then I
stand by what I said.

Exactly. Please don't read more into my comments than is there. I made
no comment about users of the site per se. If the site was exactly as
is, except with a moderation system to prevent negative comments being
posted then it would be great. Call it reference.org or something. It's
the malicious aspect that bothers me.

Understood. Apologies if my comments were unclear.
