Dan Shores:

You apologized! I missed that, thanks for pointing it out. I understand now: it's okay to break the rules if you say you're sorry. And it's not your fault for breaking the rules; it's someone else's for "dragging" you into it. Where have I heard that before... oh right, now I remember - it's the same shuck & jive you performed the last time you were "dragged" into breaking the rules! I'd try to explain how infantile that is, but it's clear you don't have the integrity to process your own spew. It's so much easier just to wallow in it.

Speaking of spew, you've puked out a couple of nifty lies about me. Namely, that I “made stuff up” when I pointed out that you had broken the rules. Second, that I accused you of being “vile and insulting” after you had posted something negative about the GOP. I'm sure you're chomping at the bit to issue yet another apology. Please don't bother. You've demonstrated your apologies to be meaningless.

The apology canard couldn't be more asinine. There is no apology exemption in the rules you claim to care so deeply about. It's nothing more than a pathetic excuse for Dan Shores to throw his little tantrums. Then it's off to the confessional so you can go forth and sin no more. If you're not a Catholic, you really should consider converting (with a Dan Shores “apology” to the Catholics among us).

Finally: “angry, frustrated and insulting.” Well, one outta three ain't bad. I'll cop to insulting. It's against my religion not to insult a lying hypocrite. But angry and frustrated? Not hardly. Amused would be more accurate; in a “hey kids – look at the village idiot!” kind of way. It's an entertaining feddish [sic], Dan. And please: be nice to the men in the white coats. They have your best interests at heart, and they're here to help.

Ye gods. Let's try to keep this childishly simple Dan, so maybe you can wrap your head around it. When you insulted John B, was that a violation of the Reader Submitted Content Policy?

Yes or No?

If the answer is yes, then you've admitted to being a hypocritical blowhard.

If the answer is no, then there must be some sort of 'tit for tat' or 'get even' provision in the Reader Submitted Content Policy that I am unaware of. If you'll show me where to find that exemption in the rules you're so concerned about, I PROMISE I'll run away with my tail between my legs and never return to this forum again.

Stop it, George - you're scaring me. I definitely wouldn't want to run into that bassist in a dark alley.

Yikes. Reading comprehension clearly isn't one of Dan Shores' strengths. Maybe he can bone up before his next GED reunion.

The italicized remarks have been copied and pasted verbatim from the contributions of Dan Shores.

Try to follow along, Dan. I neither condone nor condemn whatever mud John B has flung in your direction. I simply don't care. Most grownups understand that debate can become heated and contentious. You've proven as much with your own refusal to follow the rules you've threatened to penalize everyone else for violating. The only reason it's an issue with you is because you've chosen to become such sanctimonious windbag about it: ...this site has rules and if you don't play by them, I will turn you in...

If I get on my high horse and proclaim “eating meat is evil and wrong, and if you eat meat I'm turning you in to PETA" - right after I chowed down on a rib eye; that makes me pretentious, hypocritical blowhard, and no one should take anything I say seriously.

When Dan Shores gets on his high horse and proclaims this site has rules and if you don't play by them, I will turn you in, right after he broke the same rules, Dan Shores has proven himself to be a Preening Hypocrite, and no one should take anything you say seriously. Factor in the lies you've told about me, and you've graduated to Belligerent Punk. Congratulations!

I want to thank Dan Shores for weighing in so prolifically. He's managed to furnish a marginally entertaining distraction from the Demon Flu (flying commercial is really the only downside of not being uber-rich).

All the italicized remarks have been copied and pasted verbatim from the contributions of Dan Shores.

I can't fight back according to you, and if I turn him in and get him banned, then I am violating some other right winger credo.

I've never said you can or can't do anything, Dan (and I'm baffled what “credo”, right wing or otherwise, has to do with anything). I've merely spotlighted the stunning hypocrisy of a self-righteous blowhard proclaiming to this board 'Don't break the rules or I'll see that you answer for it!' And then breaks those same rules. You insulted John B in violation of the Reader Submitted Content Policy. There is nothing for me to make up; you did it. Asserting that I made it up makes you a liar.

Our Preening Hypocrite rationalizes his duplicity thusly: …John B started the insult train... In other words: B-b-b-but he started it! The rallying cry of 6-year olds everywhere. Seriously, Dan? You appear to have a reasonable command of the English language, and maybe even more than two brain cells to rub together. If you are unable to contrive a way to meet the same standard of conduct you've threatened to penalize everyone else for violating, that's on you.

As a life long and card carrying heathen, I've never been terribly focused on Biblical directives. Nonetheless, I've always found the 9th Commandment to be among Christendom’s more reasonable injunctions. Dan Shores, not so much: I think it's really funny how you all, and Dan K. in particular, think that if I tell the truth and say something negative about todays GOP and right wing extremist nonsense, that I am being vile and insulting you personally.

I've been a known quantity here for years. All my contributions to this forum have been archived and are easily accessible for you (or anyone) to review. Kindly cite a single instance where I've accused you (or anyone) of being vile or insulting because you've said something negative about the GOP. You can't of course, because it's never happened. Yet another lie, from the tool who's accused me of making stuff up. Project much, Dan?

Preening Hypocrite may not go far enough. Belligerent punk might be more appropriate.

'John B started it.' Unbelievable. So it's okay (for Dan Shores) to break the rules so long as someone else breaks them first. I'm confident you'll show us where to find that exemption in the Reader Submitted Content Policy. Because you're such a stickler for the rules and stuff.

Preening. Hypocrite.

This will be the third time these questions have been posed to Mr. Hall Monitor. Any wagers on if he’ll answer them?

Dan Shores: when you called John Bailey a sycophant earlier in this thread, did that violate the rules you are suddenly so passionate about enforcing? If not, why?

If it constitutes an infraction, will you turn yourself in and demand the post be deleted; holding yourself to the same standard of conduct and penalty you’ve self-righteously promised to impose on the rest of us? If not, why?

Gee, I didn't realize I was in thrall to the Military Industrialists, instead of simply wishing to honor the fallen without pissing personal politics all over their graves. Nor that I lacked the courage to engage in the discussion. Thanks for clearing that up!

I'd call your "analysis" paranoid and childish, except that I'm loathe to insult paranoid children.
