in thread Politeness (to one another) is a virtue

Did I write that you are the only person on this site who behaves rudely?

No. But you are quite happy to besmirch my name, dragging me into a thread I had studiously stayed out of.

Meanwhile, I don't see you popping up into threads defending me against unfounded accusations from the other party in the thread you cited.

Nor do I see you using his name as a crude diversionary tactic to cover up your own assumptive knee-jerk misconclusions.

is an excuse I don't accept

And I should give a monkeys what you will accept?

Because:

  • you're royalty?
  • you're paying my wages?
  • you're the ultimate arbiter of good manners?
  • you're He who must be obeyed?
  • you're not exhibiting exactly the same propensity as the third party when called out on your own error, to try and divert attention from by any means fair or foul.

    Including ...

  • (you're not) ... doing exactly what you've accusing me of.

    Being rude to me, by dragging my name into your argument.

Rudeness is not confined to the use of certain words people choose to take offence at. Intent is everything. And by bringing my name into this thread, it was your intent, to divert from your own mistakes. And that is rude.

    You're an adult. It's your prerogative to care, or not, whether people find (update: some of) your comments unnecessarily rude, aggressive, and unpleasant.

    Nor do I see you using his name...

    It's a silly fallacy to claim that I must either address every injustice in the world that you care about or none at all. (Should ikegami have continued that silly discussion? Probably not. Did you bait him? I believe so.)

    ... you are quite happy to besmirch my name

    Do you now claim that you have no history of calling people liars and calling their motives into question? I certainly don't believe that anyone with janitor access here has surreptitiously added smirch to some of your posts.

    you're not exhibiting exactly the same propensity as the third party

    Nope; my post explains the assumption I made and my mistake, and I'm leaving it saying so. Yet everyone's more than welcome to follow the link I provided and read the entire thread. Every reasonable and responsible person can come to his or her own conclusion as to the accuracy of what I wrote.

      I don't often wish that I could upvote more than once, but your post is an example ++++

      Indeed. You should try doing that yourself sometime. But this time read what actually happened in context rather than making the same wrong assumptions.
