That's all well and good. I guess I just haven't seen the same evidence. No reason for me to assume you haven't though. Proceed. Get down witcha bad self.

Since I doubt you have meticulously followed every conversation I and others have been in with RWHN over the last 5+ years, yes, it's pretty safe to say that you are correct in saying that there's no reason for that assumption.

There's some things that will make you lose respect for a person, Ep. Even the common respect you'd give to a wino on the sidewalk.

She's far too brave to grant you mercy.

No, you need encouragement!

No, I do get that. It's not the shit-flinging itself I have a problem with, it's the disingenuousness revealed by, like I said, pretending to have a discussion and then kicking that pretended respect out the window. Seems crapweasely (to use Nigel's term) to me. Especially when the other side is giving signs of openness to discussion (even if, internally, they are completely and utterly closed).

Not that there aren't levels of fucking-with-someone I'm willing to take part in - but at the point where it'd be a nasty act if done to anyone else, I think that's where I'm out. In other words, the excuse of having fun is cool, but the excuse of vengeance alone doesn't slide.
Not much for "an eye for an eye", me.

Again, naivete? Maybe.

OKAY OKAY OKAY

Let's not take this to that place again....
I'm NOT TALKING ABOUT THE DRUGS DISCUSSION!
Just a hypothetical here.
Just a hypothetical.

I do realize the RHWN thing has history, and history I don't know about. I'm not that dumb.
Granted, it was an impression I got from that discussion, yes. But I'm not saying that impression was right, at this point.  In fact let me say it was WRONG! I hope that was cleared up. I'm moving from that original impression to a general hypothetical.

Just a hypothetical here. 'k?

That's a rather pacifistic approach, I think.  I prefer the "two eyes, left testicle, and nerve gas your city for an eye" approach.  I have grown soft in my old age, of course.

Yes, you see son, we can't be letting Evil walk around all willy nilly like it owns the joint.  It must be PUT IN IT'S PLACE.  Otherwise, your kids will end up in jail, or worse, the boy scouts.

Well, Evil's been the burn on every thread on PD in the last half hour or so.  Better sign for this load anyway, just to be...well, safe.

  The fact that he continues to post here, even when some threads turn into one person vs the entire board (and can often get kind of ugly), speaks volumes to me about what kind of person he is.

The fact that he treats anyone who disagrees with him as a slave to peer pressure tells me what kind of person he is.

What broke it for me was when I said that my MPH friend holds the opposite view from him regarding the effect of the criminalization of drugs on youth use rates, and asked if it is possible that both viewpoints had validity. His response was to tell me that my MPH friend must be "misinformed". He strongly implied that he has an MPH, and that was the genesis of my questioning of his credentials because much of his reasoning seems inconsistent with that of anyone I know who has an MPH, but when I asked directly what his degree was, he would not answer.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
