Nah. If you want peace and quiet in your site, then go tell the other guy who is hurling verbal abuse and acting out. I'm not guilty of anything you're accusing me by lumping me with this angry person.

Um, wow. That's the single most unjustifiably entitled response to an editor's request to stop talking that I have ever seen on LWN. Hint: you just suggested, in the grandparent of this post I'm replying to, that your interlocutor "go beat up your wife/children" and implied that this was something that an opponent of your views would naturally consider, and you have the temerity to claim that this is not impolite, disrespectful and/or uninformative?

I don't know who's coming out best in this subthread -- but I know who's coming out worst. When in hole, stop digging. (And in my experience, on thi site, when an editor tells you to stop, they are right.)

I'm stopping now.

I think I am entitled not to be verbally abused and misrepresented by stranger assholes on a forum I enjoy, whenever I am participating in it. I also think I am entitled to respond accordingly when said abusive asshole continues on a pattern of abuse against me and demanding belligerently that I shut up. I am also entitled to tell the moderator of the site that I don't agree with his siding with bullies against me.

This is, contrary to what you seem to think, not only perfectly reasonable but also healthy. And you might try and shame me with your "you're coming out worst" quip, but you mistake me for someone who cares about being shamed.
