The truth is never tacky, Lambchop. Your instability is showing.
Threatening violence is never good form, it shows an inability or
unwillingness to conduct yourself with reason.
If one cannot take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. This is a list
which does not, for the most part suffer fools gladly. Fools are those
who are ignorant and don't know or care that they are igtnorant. People
who know that they do not know are very welcome.
Yes, and you were rude before I even posted you.
The usual form for asking for citations is something like, " Would you
please give us your citations." You wrote," Would you please state your
"sources" [Pretty much OK to this point but putting sources in quotes
could be construed as an indication of doubt of quality], as that would
be helpful to us in determining which of you is correct." The latter
part is insulting and rude. It would have been more mannerly and would
have sufficed to have merely asked for the citations.
