So is goading someone by repeating the same ridiculous rhetoric,
side-stepping the same issues over and over, off-season mating with a red
herring, purposely ignoring context, etc.  Didn't we approve a moratorium on
wind-bags at one point?

Let's get a couple things clear.

1) Asking to take personal attacks offlist is sufficient.
2) Repeating the words or phrases that, in your opinion,
   were transgressions is inappropriate.
3) Stating your opinion and then talking as if everyone
   here feels the same way by referring to "us" or "we"
   is inappropriate.
4) Stating that apologies are in order is absolutely
   pretentious, laughable, and an absofuckinglutely
   guaranteed way to make sure that no apologies are

Now, that said, your comments on this matter are not appropriate for this
list.  Please direct them to the appropriate inbox, offlist.

See, we can all tell each other to take it offlist.  Whatever is your point,

Thank you mother.  May I have another?
