in thread What is "aggressive" argument?

you are now putting words into my mouth that are the exact opposite of what I've explicitly said ...
  1. As I said back up there, and you explicitly noted, you are not my only accuser--hence the plural.

    So, you adopting the mantle of the aggrieved at this point is, to use the colloquial, a bit previous.

  2. See? It is damn frustrating to have your words and intent wilfully misinterpreted isn't it?

    It tends to make you say things that you'd normally never say!

    Even if the misrepresentation is only perceived rather than actual, as in this case.

... willfully misrepresenting other things I've said ("By their standards, even just telling someone they are wrong--even if they are--is a 'personal attack'.")

Re-read this thread. Did not at least one person in it suggest that "Telling someone they are wrong" is a personal attack?

... even accusing me of sock-puppetry. Ok, while typing this I realised that it's possible you were referring to the other T

Possible? Even likely? Even absolutely, unmistakably, (oh! And correctly!), not accusing you of that.

You've just confirmed everything I've been saying.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
