1. I was unaware of any conventions about reposting comments in entierty. It seems pretty common practice to copy only relevant sections. Clearly it would be dishonest to change someone's words.
2. It is my contention that the "wrap a towel around your head" and "al-dirtbag" comments are unacceptable regaurdless of context. Thus, I was in no way being dishonest, since no context (other than direct opposition or third-part quotation) makes those comments acceptable. Besides, 82s full comments are now on this thread in two places.
