MWS - people can take what they wish from the example given.
I do not choose to debate with you the degree to which the example does or does not reflect the conduct of any thread participant as a) I do not believe that such a discussion can take place on a level playing field and b) partly as a consequence, I'm not sure that anything of value would come of such a discussion, and c) if you see one party here as a blameless victimized bashee rather than a serial basher then there is likely no room for meaningful discussion in any event.
I respct your opinion - and your right to express it - even if I disagree with it.
I fully respect that, and agree that it becomes a fruitless discussion at some point. Regarding point C), I don't consider anyone truly blameless, as I alluded to with my point about heated emotion. I just consider that to be a two way street. There have been apologies in the past to rectify that though.
