Hardly. I merely said you were being rude. Its a pretty obvious thing, as that seems to be your demeanor at least half the time. Everyone can read it for themselves.
And you may have forgotten, but the very first encounter I had with you, you were rude to me, as well. I was not replying to anything you said, and was not posting to a thread you had written. I stated an opinion. You responded in a rude fashion by telling me to "give my head a shake," and that my opinion made no sense. So no, you do not respond in kind only when initially attacked.
But whatever. This thread is already way off the main page, and I don't wish to go digging for it all the time. Later.
