Now you are being disingenuous about your own words as well as mine.
Your question to Elizabeth was:
"The question is which behavior is more effective in silencing trolls:
ignoring them or attacking them."
My answer was
"Hines was ABSENT from SGM for a blessedly long stretch after a similar
struggle from which he emerged fleeing with his tail between his legs."
You are now trying to misrepresnt my sentence about what happened AFTER a
struggle between two people to your reading about what happened BECAUSE of a
whacking by one person.
That is not logical integrity, or accurate comprehension of plain English.
