in thread A modest request of Merlyn

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

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.

    I am not the least bit offended by being called a fool for my cheap XP-whoring code that I posted in the other thread.

    This thread, on the other hand, is on the topic of stating that one's comments will never be personal attacks, that the offended party should re-read the post until he sees that he jumped to a conclusion, etc., etc, and then posting something that (debatably) falls into the category of personal attack.

    It is my belief that doing that is being untruthful. Again (and boy did this get downvoted hard last time) I think that since the disclaimer against such action is a public one, breaking the disclaimer becomes a public issue.

    Thanks for your comments.
