My numbered statements were not engagements in debate, Lyell.
Dismiss the content of the letter
No one has dismissed the content of the letter. You were dishonest on this point.
You can either acknowledge that you have been dishonest about our actions, apologize for doing so, and agree to try to refrain from lying about your opponent's statements in the future, or lose your posting privileges here.
because of the headlines meant to draw attention to it, then deflect it by changing the subject.
Others have continued to discuss the subject of the letter, while others have focused on something they feel is more concerning. This being a forum, it is possible to address multiple formats at once and, frankly, it is generally considered rude to gang up on people over a single point, and I am not about to ask the entire thread ask you what is wrong with political boycotts as you already seem to be fine with them.
It is dishonest on your part to claim that the intent was to deflect the subject from the letter. If you want to re-open the discussion of why you think something is wrong with the letter itself, you may continue that with those who have responded to the content of the letter. But it looks like you agreed with the concept of the rebuttal.
Again, you can apologize for your false claim, and agree to try to refrain from such behavior in the future, or have your posting privileges here revoked.
Typical downplay and distraction, though I did expect it sooner.
And this is nothing but inflammatory, content-less rhetoric.
Again, you can apologize and agree to try and refrain from it in the future, or have your posting privileges here revoked.
And don't try to claim we have not done the same with liberals. The only one so far banned for this sort of behavior was, in fact, a liberal. The conservative we banned had their access revoked for likening gays to pedophiles, which is not just crass and inflammatory but also a personal assault on many members here.
I myself have posted public apologies when I was in the wrong. I know no one is perfect, that things get heated, but this sort of behavior cannot be allowed to continue if we are to have a meaningful discourse. You have presented many salient points here without resorting to such tactics, and I hope you can continue to do so in the future without resorting to lines like this so frequently. There are a lot of people with conservative opinions here who do just fine without resorting to such tactics. You can join them and keep participating in the dialogue, or not.
