If a point is worth making, if you believe it strongly enough to stake your flag in it, there should be no need to trash talk those who disagree. To talk like a bully doesn’t lend credibility to your point. Rather the opposite, in fact.
A great point, and why we should try hard to keep it clean while making our points on MWOP. Trash talk makes it easy for new readers and those on the fence to dismiss the valid points.
Otherwise, it was a standard, long, back-tracking (oh, and political) post.
