  Ah, you think it is moral of yourself to attack me and immoral of myself
  to defend myself from your unfair hatred.  Amazing reality break.

  It does not cross that threshold until you start attacking me.

| A good point only if they are being uncivil. I don't believe I have been,

  Your summary is so self-serving you should get a halo long before you
  die.  How unspeakably revolting it is to watch you people in action.
