...for stating that his comments are globally never personal attacks, when a few examples of crossing that line exist.

in thread A modest request of Merlyn
I'm sure that a few examples do cross the line every now and again. It happens. If it doesn't happen, I'd be surprised. It's a bit of human nature. But, those who have been offended by such comments could message merlyn and discuss it. I'm sure that they'd work it out. If merlyn has offended you in such a way - I'm sure that he'd be pleased to communicate (and possibly apologize for offending) with you.
To have a whole thread on this seems a bit silly. Not particularly foolish, but silly. I hope that you are satisified with the answers you have recieved from such offender (aka merlyn) on this particular subject.
