I just realized I had a comment dismissed (from many days ago). And for the life of me, I can't really figure out why other than I chose a dissenting opinion from the person I was responding to. I believe I was respectful, and that I was very on topic and at least voicing an opinion which could lead to a clarification of their point.
I am not going to call out names, or point to the article, and I beg any of you to not go digging and attempt to figure out who and why.
However, I am going to state that the level of respect I have for this individual has gone from my baseline (everyone gets respect, until they lose it) to, uh, I just won't respond to you ever. Because there is no gain in it. It would be a waste of my time.
I understand dismissing people, I even encouraged it. But if someone chooses to do so because of a simple challenge to their initial premise. Opinions may be formed.
