My response to Judith that I suspect may have induced her to leave wasn't a deliberate attempt to get her to leave; it was a fair and reasonable response to her post.
And my post that elicited MacManiac's response was an attempt to see who agreed with my opinion that your
Lounge behavior has been egregious, and that
was fair behavior, NOT provocative, because it wouldn't be unfair to say that you've been trolling us Americans by incessantly posting links that we don't care to post ourselves.
You've jumped on a term I used, for lack of a better one, with hindsight, NOT with malice aforethought.
Get over yourself, quit sulking, and rejoin the fray.
