Conversation Between FreeTedWilliams and PatsFanInVa
I e-mailed you last night to get an explanation of what, specifically, you were referring to as an "unprovoked attack" on fogbuster. The closest I could tell was that I described what will become the new talking points for the right wing, and advised a right-wing poster to "run along and study" the new playbook.
Please correct me if this is an incorrect reading of the reason for the infraction.
In the meantime, said member has posted the following. Normally I would simply accept the attack as part of the "thick skin" we expect of one another, but my impression is that standard has changed.
This member's personal attacks on me are of an ad hominem character; that is to say, they attack me as a person, and not an aspect of my argument. In that this seems not to be an element of a Mod's judgment of "unprovoked attack", as you phrased my infraction, I suspect it should not matter. However, you should know this is both an unprovoked attack and an ad hominem attack, in case that is of any concern:
How can you even begin to know what "better" means until you have experienced what others in the world are experiencing?? You rely on the "educated class" from Harvard and MIT, but they sit in their plush salons all day looking at what they want to look at, talking with others who believe what they believe, who live as they live: the easy life, which they then feel so guilty about.
Have you ever lived outside the U.S.?? If not, then how can you say "you want to make America better"?? You have zero basis of comparison. Lazy. The limousine liberal way. John Stewart, Michael Moore, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi and Ted Kennedy way.
Come back here after a year or two in Russia, China, or the Czech Republic -- ANYWHERE outside the U.S. -- and then tell us how "America needs to change". Until then you are blowing smoke. Your opinions on "America" are utterly useless. You are simply a malcontent, a rebel with no cause but yourself.
Thanks for your attention to this matter, and what I expect will be an evenhanded application of forum rules.
