[quote="peachShiraz"]Two men with a Thesaurus does not superior beings make.[/quote]
I see no evidence of claimed superiority whatsoever, likewise, of a Thesaurus being in use in some of these posts, one man's dead word is quite often, another man's very much alive, and rolls mellifluously from his tongue, or keyboard, at will.
Rod wrote, what I thought was a very witty, facetious post, using metaphor to equate the understanding of the female personality, in general, to the understanding of Particle Physics, a very complex subject, I'm sure you will agree. I found it robust, and amusing, and that is all that was said.
One has to parse the ensuing comments, to understand why this post deteriorated as it did.
One could have simply said, which in my opinion would have been more appropriate in this environment; "If I had wanted to listen to an 'A**hole, I would have farted." Much more fitting for the clientelle on hand.
However, that was NOT the wording used.
As to the 'Respect' that always seems to be demanded in these cases.
Once the mediator of the debate abandons impartiality, then 'Respect' becomes 'Disrespect' according to his momentory preference, doesn't it? After which, an alternative dispute resolution is quite impossible.
Any questions asked in this post are strictly rhetorical, no answers needed.
