see, I didn't call you intellectually dishonest, I said your idea was characterized in a dishonest manner. An idea you might have not considered in such terms or open to such criticism. Hence, *you* would not be dishonest in repeating itAs to the "Lighten up" reference, did you read any words of mine in my reply that were as confrontational as what you described as a "dishonest characterization"? Maybe it isn't I who should lighten up. I am in a fine mood thank you . . . it is football Sunday.
But I am sure you are right, because I am usually wrong. Perhaps (I have no way of knowing) where you come from, it is normal to start a conversation with someone by calling them intellectually dishonest.
