No, I was just trying to correct an outright falsehood, but in a polite way. Telling truth is never "smarmy" Trying to throw your weight around with gratuitous insults is, however..

Best,

You, etixos always show up here to call me a LIAR or to mock Terri’s freepers. What kind of cheap thrill is that? Apparently, it works for you. We are done communicating as of........................now.

Etixos, I know that in your very short time on FR you have been told that the Terri Dailies threads ARE NOT open for debate and this is with Jim Robinson’s blessing. This thread is 100% PRO-LIFE and we define pro-life as being that ALL HUMANS have the ABSOLUTE right to life from the moment of conception until the moment of natural death, ANYTHING that is done to facilitate a person’s death is morally wrong and completely inconsistent with what conservatives believe.

If you want to learn, we are happy to have you here. If you have legitimate questions, we will do our best to answer them. However, something that starts along the lines of, “Don’t you think” and then follows with pro-death talking points, IS NOT a legitimate question. If you are looking to push a pro-death agenda, there MAY be a few threads on FR where you will find support and there are certainly other forums (some even believe they are conservative) that will welcome these views.

I am a patient person as are most of the other regulars on the Terri Dailies threads, and while I won’t presume to speak for them, you are certainly testing my patience.

To you, Etixos, your intent may have been politeness, and to you it may have sounded polite. But it is not what you mean so much as how your communication is received by others. It does come across to folks like me and others like me as smarmy and hostile. Whatever you meant, this is what you conveyed. Recall Bobby Burns...

"Oh wad some power the giftie gie us To see oursel's as others see us! It wad frae monie a blunder free us, And foolish notion."
