Those of us who have been around here for a while know that once in a while manhattan blows a gasket, loses all trace of rationality and goes all bombastic and ballistic. Nothing new there and not much we can do about it but wait to see if and when he grows up to be a mature and rational adult who can control his fits of anger and frustration.
In this thread about the lies about Cuba uttered by President Bush manhattan had no arguments to counter mine so the best he could do was to say to me
Well, no need to argue further because if that is not an admission of defeat I don’t know what is. I do not think anyone reading that thread has any doubts about whose arguments are more compelling and manhattan’s insults reflect on him, not on me. It is not a new tactic of those who irrationally believe what this administration is saying or doing, to smear those who question it. They label you a supporter of terrorists or, as in this case, of being pro child prostitution. To me it shows how desperate they are.
I do not wish to add to the animosity present in this board which is already too much so I am not going to roast manhattan over the coals for this. I think everybody, including manhattan himself, knows how despicable and shameful it is and we can leave it there.
Gaudere admonishes him:
WTF? Accusing someone in GD of being pro child prostitution deserves no more than a passing comment to “Take it to the Pit or take it down a notch”? I thought there were limits even in the Pit and I think this kind of post in GD would have received a serious warning had it come from any other poster. Or have I missed a bunch of similar posts in GD which did not receive a warning?
