49. You just don't get it, do you?
You ignored my point, just as I knew you or someone else responding to my post would. I chose it to show an absurd manner of attacking someone's character by attributing someone else's words to that person AND to show that instead of responding to the point, the responder will deflect and avoid the point.

The only thing Markos did was point/link to someone else's blog entry and said, "Too funny." Clearly, he deserves all the vitriol being aimed at him over this.

So, you figure MM did not bring up the issue but just linked to a blog entry pointing out the 'similarity'...which you could have mentioned in the first place. Instead you chose not to mention this and ignored the explanation of why people might think he had originated the comparison, as implied by the content of post #1.

And in order to make your point, you drew comparisons between people 'attacking' MM and holocaust denial. I see 2 other people on the thread characterized him as a 'goober' and a 'jerk'. Well, that's mildly offensive, but not very serious, and it is certainly not in the same league as holocaust denial. Congratulations, you win the 'tasteless poster of the day' award because you were so eager to prove a point, despite not having presented an actual argument (about who posted what) until now.
