All true except I'm not retaliating against Bob - he hasn't insulted me (or if he has, I've not taken it to heart as insults as boring and childish).

What I am doing, is pointing out (in my own mildly-sarcastic-comedy way) that for me and others, its getting too tiresome to filter Bob's insults from his content. Its actually easier to simply count the 'self-aggrandizing idiot' phrase that appear in each of his posts.

I completely agree. They aren't meant to contain anything of value or worth.

;-) thats why I changed the subject line - I was hoping it would be enough of a hint to those that dont care to read them...

and that might just be the whole problem right there. A lot of us here don't see that insults or bullying is ever appropriate or beneficial.

YMMV
