    I could not agree with your sentiment more.

    On the contrary, my post illustrates the rare point of view that every opinion is equally valid. You must have read it wrong.

    I know this thread hasn't completely turned into mud slinging but I thought this pic was starting to become relevant:

    Poor taste is never relevant.

    Sorry you didn't find the pic amuzing but when I start to see posts in a thread like:
    I have to ask would anyone really say that to someone's face? Some people lose track of the difference between disagreeing with a persons opinion (which is welcome and expected) and launching personal attacks (which has no place in these forums). The pic was (in my opinion) an amusing way to point this out. So yes I do think the pic was relevant. Sorry it didn't strike you that way but nothing personal was intended.

    Thanks,

    On numerous occasions, I have been misquoted, and my words have been twisted by the person I was addressing. This isn't the first time it has happened. In fact, the person I was responding to often does this when someone doesn't agree with his/her opinion. I have stopped responding to anything he/she posts because we don't see eye-to-eye, and I don't like the condescending replies he/she often makes. This case was an exception because I was directly addressed by the poster.

    If I was face to face with the person I typed my response to, and we were (verbally) at the same point in our discussion, I absolutely would have said that to his/her face. I didn't curse, harass, threaten or otherwise say anything that could be construed as "out of line". My commentary was my assessment of the poster's posts.

    It's not like I posted a link implying that someone was a dickwad ;) :)

    I agree that personal attacks are out of place in these forums. However your posting seemed to me to be a case of just what you were condemning. Perhaps I'm just old and too sensitive but IMHO such vulgarity is out of place in a forum like this.

    I hate to say it but I think this thread has finished running its course. Do mods ever close threads around here or do they just stay open indefinitely?

    it seems personal insults rule is largely ignored. Now this thread has not really crossed that line, in my opinion, since the only just plain old insult was a picture an not aimed directly at anyone
