in reply to What is "aggressive" argument?

Just saw this thread. I remember the "aggressive" accusation, but honestly I've seen worse here from other contributors--like when JavaFan reamed some poor dude for giving an answer that was wrong, and the evils of posting when you're not 100% sure your answer's the most accurate... (I didn't vote him down or anything, cuz, of course, he was right, but at the time I remember reading it and thinking "What a big meanie!")

I've only been around this fantastic expert's site regularly since the beginning of October, and I think old-timers develop an online personality that newbies can't yet relate to--and may require some patience to understand.

This thread actually proves it--as I can see a number of personalities in this thread that I have no idea how to understand--but can see there's a lengthy history and perhaps some competing egos.

That said, if I could contribute anything to the discussion by way of encouragement to BrowserUK, I'd just say, don't get too discouraged about having your teeth knocked out in the last fight you were in (ref OP), cuz we all know that the British have notoriously bad teeth! :D

Ray ducks and runs...

    Indeed, good observation! :)

    I'd refute that by showing you, but given your name, the water in the jar where I keep them, might have a disastrous affect on you! ;)


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

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
