This is NOT a Pitting per se; I just wanted to keep this digression from hijacking this thread.
The state of play:
OK, now we’re all caught up.
He is my friend. But my post here did not rely on that fact in any way. But apparently you’re incapable of responding to what I actually said.
And you promised you wouldn’t mention him again. Now you’re even.
Sometimes people walk away from a fight that they know they’ve lost. Sometimes they do that even when they say they’ll do otherwise. Happens all the time.
But rarely do people keep freaking out about it for years afterwards. There are names for people like that, and I’d expect to find them in DSM-IV.
This is even scarier: I dimly remember our having words about this before, but it was some time ago, and I certainly can’t remember what, specifically, either of us said. But here you either care enough to have it bookmarked, or remember well enough to find it with a search.
But if you’re going to drag whatever fight we had back then into a current thread, the least you could do is link.
I’ve got this dim recollection that most of the country did that. I hope you’re not similarly obsessed over 100 million people.
Do you have one scintilla of evidence that Bluesman committed some professional breach of integrity, let alone that anything he might’ve done could have deflected the Bushies from taking this country to war?
Well, no shit, but that admission isn’t exactly a ‘get out of slime free’ card. Equivalently, I could say something like “you break into octogenarian widows’ homes and rape them as a hobby. If that’s not true then I’m wrong.” You see?
Oh, the heck with it, I guess it is a Pitting after all. If the shoe fits.
