Subject: RE: BS: Censorship on Mudcat
Moral high ground? Not me, Roger, I'm happy in the basement *grin*. And what better proof of this, than the fact that I rise to your repeated taunts and personal judgements (after all, you did just say that my "attempts to occupy the moral high ground..." are "preposterous". Whether correct or not, that looked like a judgement to me). But I forgot - you do not like personal judgements in public, so I probably misinterpreted that (strike two).

I did (briefly) consider staying away from the thread, and it almost made it to the bottom of the list a couple of times, but regular as clockwork you refresh it anyway, so what the heck...

The thing is, Roger, I would be the first to admit that my April Fool's joke was not such a great one; a little smile at best was all it was aiming at, no guffaws, no belly-laughs. I snared a couple of people, we exchanged PMs as virtual handshakes, and we moved on. But your insistence on taking umbrage and repeatedly trying to show what a silly joke it was, only serves to give it merit that it does not deserve.

If moral high ground is your aim (and I assume it is, as you brought it up in such a "hurt" fashion), I venture to suggest that digging does not provide the best route to it.

But as long as you dig, I'll bring my spade along.
