183. Oh, drop it tomm
Your post conveyed information about me. You did not link to the source of your information. Yes, I could have corrected it, and yes I did. But I do not think that the DU rules permit personal information to be posted even if correction is invited. There are reasons for these rules. Computer security is one of them.

And what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. When you "suggest" I word a "disclaimer" in the way you did (see above for context) you might like put IT in context. Put the way you did, it suggests that I am (subject to correction) accepting a retainer from Mitofsky for expressing these views on DU. Which is misleading bunkum. I ran some analyses for him at an hourly rate, and the only sense in which that ties me is that the analyses must remain confidential.

As you say, context matters.

I'm glad your objection to Rick is not that he is a Republican. I agree with you that a bipartisan approach to electoral reform is important - it's one of the reasons I am glad to work with Rick. As for vitriolic posts, as I said, I don't think Republicans, or even Rick, has a monopoly on those. TIA is maligning him for his religious views downthread, which I think is not just vitriolic but unacceptable.

Let's call a truce tomm. I've put the disclaimer in my sig. Now you stop these posts impugning my motives. If others want draw their own inferences from my disclaimer they can do so.
