Group attacks aren't personal. Only personal attacks are disallowed. When I said, "What a dumba$$" that wasn't personal

That is not how the English language works - you said "what a dumba$$" The use of "a" makes it an attack on one person (although this is not necessarily the definition of a personal attack). What you were doing is attacking the person that made the statement rather than attacking the statement - this is a textbook example of a personal / ad hominem - you are not going to be able to spin your way out of this.

But you aren't that stupid, you know that is a personal attack, just like your bozo alert was.

Alert - to warn

All I said is "warning, Evo-Bozo's may infiltrate this thread". I directed it at no one person (unlike you)

Spin all you want, you are clearly the one hurling personal ad hominem attacks

Using you warped logic - who is the person you think my "personal attack" is directed toward? That would be Evo-Bozo's so unless you think you are an Evo-Bozo than it is not directed at you. (you did not think that out, did you) See how deep of a hole you dug?

So do you also think the terms "Terrorist Alert" or "Moonbat Alert" are also personal attacks - if so, who is the person it is directed at?

what else can one expect from a creo

I don't know - I am not a creo

Bozo was singular.

And of course you're not a creo. No one is. LOL

And I'm done with you.
