    Which just proves my point--no discussion of the topic, just rude behavior toward the poster. which is why I don't make it personal. (not you, the previous post) In person folks are not so rude. they show respect--in person

    I think the whole thought is that it's tasteless, and even cowardly, to bash someone who can't be there to defend himself/herself.

    It reminds me of a yard dog, that hides under the porch, and comes out to snip at your ankles as you walk by, --then runs back under the porch, and barks.

    What's your definition of "bashing?"

    Exactly. Some of our left wing collegues view Rush Limbaugh no different than some of our right wing collegues view Noam Chomsky.

    To be such polar opposites, they are often much like two peas in a pod.

    I like to point that out every chance I get.

    I think some people are just frustrated, and want to be fighters, but would rather talk trash, from the saftey of their keyboards.---I've been a fighter all my life, and have leaned to be respectful of others. I have nothing I have to prove.

    Isn't the topic of the thread about "speaking ill"? THAT, naturally.

    I understand, but what's the line between bashing and stating historical fact about the person? When I state that Hitler caused one of the greatest incidences of suffering in the twentieth century, am I being historically accurate or am I bashing him?
