David, you frequently have a way of stating things that lead people
to interpretate it differently than you intended.
Your style is the problem, not our understanding.
It happens so often, I wonder why you've not realized it yet.
BBB, I have "not realized it yet" because what u alleged
is inconsistent with the operative facts.
An honest, objective appraisal of this interchange
will reveal that I only made a very simple statement,
commenting upon the ignorance of residents
who said something,
according to Dys. I accept his word that thay said it.
It may be that in other venues,
I have been guilty of excessive complexity or intricacy,
but not here, not now.
I earnestly consider my style on this thread to have been very simple;
easy to understand. Admittedly, I played with taking
the residents' words literally (that rankles liberals; thay detest
and I had a little fun by implying a taunt.
This is chronically endemic to this forum, of long standing.
I am confident that if I were a leftist,
condemning a conservative u 'd either have supported
my utterance, or u 'd have remained silent; i.e.: it depends on
whose ox is gored.
If u 'd like to objectively analyse my style as hereinbefore set forth,
I will be happy to entertain any scrutiny or parsing thereof.
(I have a hunch that u will not accept my invitation; prove me rong.)
