Funny world .
Not long ago I referred to some posters as "Usual Suspects' in a stand alone post without naming any names, and was publicly hauled across the coals (for which I accept and appreciate the later apology), my post being accused of being sarcastic (yes maybe) and an Ad Hominem. This led to me withdrawing from the board for a while to cool down.
For those who understand the English language, an Ad Hominem is most generally defined as a personal attack on a person / persons with no real supporting argument about the attack or the facts at hand.
Now calling another poster , or generally most other posters, "twats", plus a series of previous similar type comments in different threads over a lengthy period of time are pretty much as close to being a stream of Ad Hominem's as anything possible. The comment quoted above does contain a small element of factual argument and is therefore border line by definition but not in spirit.
This is just a general observation that I wish to put out there. While I have quoted 'rangersman' above, without malice against someone I do not know or wish to know, I should expect that he would follow the advice he gives to all us 'twats' and just scroll over this post and not react. However my observation of human nature leads me to believe that many do not practice what they preach, and insist on always having the last word. We will see.
