I am deeply hurt.
Looking at the thread with my posts deleted it appears I must have said something horrendous. I in fact gave a dictionary definition of a word that is continually being thrown about here by people who are unable to discuss an issue politely.
I did not say anything horrendous. I was completely polite and gave my point of view. I did not call anyone names which it seems is quite alright for people to call me. I was taught that it was wrong to call people names instead of rational discussion. Calling people names is the sign of losing an argument because there is no rational response. Now I am the one being victimized by it.
It seems that dictionary definitions are not acceptable forms of discussion and need to be deleted.
