Well, they did get 3 out of 4 right. I never considered you a troll.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

"Well, first of all, I got a polite PM today from a moderator warning me to go easy on you guys so as not to offend your delicate sensibilities so I'll try to keep that in mind as I compose my response."

Have you considered the possibility that since previously you have yourself gone running telling tales to the mods, that they in turn feel justified in keeping you in check?

Verity-the condition of being true, factual or real.
I'm glad to see you have finally seen the light.Respec' Jayhawk! It's always heartening to see someone admit they have been wrong.
Now you just need to spread the word to some of your misguided right-wing chums.
So Ears is a left winger? Wow, I am a commie.

Why don't we all just drop it and get on w/ praising President Bush for the excellent job he is doing to combat terrorism...

Don't believe everything you think

I am at a total loss and would love to see the specifics of their complaint.

Could you be mistaken or overreacting? Though I have never seen you overreact...
No, Jay, I'm neither mistaken nor over-reacting. Since the PM was sent in confidence I will respect his privacy unless he wants to chime in here. But the substance of the message was that I needed to "tone down" my comments because some of the members felt that they were being "beaten up" pretty badly. I want to emphasize once again that the actual email was courteous and not disrespectful and, as a result, I resopnded in kind and merely asked for specifics. I did mention, as I have noted previously, that I don't think that my behavior has been in any way outside the "norms" established in the OT section of BW.

If people are offended by arguments over religion or politics then it would seem wise for them to just saunter over to the W126 forum and get some tips on fixing up their cars instead.

Some posters here are really paranoid of their intellectual appearance
and take great offense to a verbal beat down in front of their goons.

This says it all
"It's been my observation that people who nitpick on spelling, punctuation and grammar do so because they have lost the argument and have, essentially, nothing of substance to say."
