Of course, by doing what you just did,  and ending as you ended, your response
is to insult me and dismiss my opinion as being wrong or laughable.

If you're going to pillory me for doing something, does it not necessitate that
you not do these things yourself?  Because if it is uancceptable behavior, then
clearly you would not do it yourself.  If you do it yourself, then it must be,
by your lights, acceptable behavior, and thus not grounds for pillorying,
tarring, feathering or dead catting.  You cannot disagree with what you
yourself practice.

Consistency in all things, yes?
