In this thread, I recieved a fairly stern rebuke. I deserved it, because stuff like that is not appropriate in Great Debates.
However, the jerk I was responding to stated that I was a “murderer”. He didn’t imply it, he said it outright.
That, sir, is disgusting. I’m an American doing my part to help this country the best way that I can, and neither I nor my fellow military members deserve to be spit on like that. Yet you warn me and not this guy?
That disgusts me. How about I call you a murderer, eh? How about I attack your character like that? If I did, I’d be out of here in a heartbeat. You know it and I know it.
The mere fact that this even has to be addressed astounds me. How is that at all acceptable, anywhere? You may find it to be so, but I sure as hell don’t.
It’s your house, it’s your rules, so do whatever. As for me, if he had said that to my face, I don’t know what I would have done. I wouldn’t have bought him a beer, that’s for sure. I just think it’s important to realize that what’s said here isn’t anonymous. I met my wife here, I know a lot of people from here, and people need to watch what they say, especially when accusing someone of a truly heinous crime.
So, where do we go from here? That’s entirely up to you, David B. I’ve had my say. I admit that what I said was wrong, I’d like to see my other grievance addressed.
