    Just FYI. All the imaginary stuff aside.
    If you truly cannot perceive the difference between a polite attempt to defuse a situation and being argumentative, then it is a waste of time attempting discussion with you.

    If you do understand the difference and choose to ignore it...then it is still a waste of time attempting to engage in discussion with you.

    Have a great day.

    The problem with this whole off-track discourse is neither one of us or anybody for that matter knows exactly what was said, how it was said, the context or anything else.

    It's all imaginary. Imaginary fears of assault brought on by the paranoid.

    Take it at face value. A verbal altercation is just that. Any escalation is no excuse for gunplay, no matter who said what, did what, punches, kicks or anything else. It don't matter. Get that through your thick head.

    Of course it matters.

    Maybe to you. Now pull out the old "better to be judged by 12..." cliche.

    Maybe if you can't avoid getting in a fight you really need a good ass-kickin'?

    Go back and look at my initial post where I said the best advice is probably to just walk away. What I have been saying is that a punch, kick, or hell, just a push can lead to dire consequences. Thus, I won't allow it to happen to me, if I can prevent it. Didn't say I'd shoot anyone over it but I treat any physical threat very seriously.

    I'll go along with that. I'll go a step further and say that is the ONLY advice.

    I'm curious...do you like coming off as a total ******* consistently or are you just unable to avoid it?

    Now I'm going to show you how to respond in this situation, since your verbal attack fits this scenario to a tee.

    Stand by.....

    No attack...just a question arising from honest curiousity...

    I sort of figured you already knew how your pronouncements appeared...I just wanted to know if it was purposeful or not.

    No biggie...don't answer if would rather people made their own judgements.
