    I can make a point while calling people son. It does not stop me at all. It only exposes those that care about tone more than substance so they whine about tone.

    You are conflating acceptance of a point with making a point as in creating. Again if people care about tone over substance I will just laugh like I normally do.

    You were not talking about the report function but banning.

    Nope. But this isn't the place for these kinds of talks.

    My take on the use is as a pejorative indicating a loss of argument and the resorting of low tactics by the user.

    I would have to plead the 5th if pressed myself, but I am trying to bring my game up rather than down.

    Are you abdicating your own responsibility in choosing to use pejoratives against others?

    Post #(90) was addressed to you. You haven't answered. And neither has anyone else.

    Recover? From what?

    Why don't you answer the questions? Scared?

    Not at all.
    I personally see no use in discussion with people who are completely immune to truth and facts.

    Yes, I want you to answer the question. You made the remark. You entered into a post not directed to you when you made the remark. So, yes. Answer the question. Are you calling me a troll?

    I have answered. I cannot help that you do not like the answers.

    Of course. It is always best to mischaracterize others so you can feel good about yourself and your own obvious failings.

    Is this the best you can do?
