Thank you Setanta, that is exactly the point. If you can trash me personally enough... going through a list of what you consider to be my previous transgression, then you don't have to listen to my points, answer my questions or respond to my reasoning.
Once you have trashed me personally every time we interact you can just respond with times you disagreed with me in the past. Of course, there are two sides to every disagreement we had... I don't feel I trashed those threads.. I merely expressed my opinion. Nor do I feel that these threads were "praising women". But again, I respect your right to disagree with me and you can express your opinion the same I as can.
It is very convenient to divide the entire Able2know community into two groups... the in-crowd and the out-crowd, the creeps and the non-creeps. I don't think it is very productive. It means that you close your mind to other ideas simply because of your personal feelings toward the people who are expressing them.
The name calling is really the problem. When you attack people personally, rather than respond to ideas, then reasonable discussion becomes impossible.
My objection is not that you hold certain people in such disdain... the real problem is that you are telling everyone else to ostracize certain members for their beliefs. Why not just form your own opinions and ignore the people who you dislike?
Once you try to turn everyone else against them, you cross a line into bullying. I don't support that.
