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.
Don't know how old you are..but you'll find out.
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.
