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?


  • 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.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
