Choice of words, changes an otherwise innocuous statement into one that is impertinent and deogatory. For example, where you said:

"So you thought you'd complain about people complaining?"A subtle change, but the first is derogatory, the second is not (quite). And you knew you were being rude, when you suggested "if you can't take it, don't dish it out".
And when you said:
"[...] when you dismiss other peoples views [...] as moaning [...]"... you clearly did not feel admiration for "dismissing other peoples views as moaning" ... even though you had just done preciseley that, yourself.
You most assuredly were - by your own characterisation, as demonstrated above.
I was neither rude nor insolent.
Opinions can be expressed politely and respectfully ... or they may be expressed impolitely and disrespectfully. Yours, here, have been largely the latter rather than the former.
The whole purpose of a discussion board is to discuss, no? Discussions tend to involve opinions and differences.
And, I say again: if you behave rudely, you have exactly zero grounds to complain when someone points out to you, that you have behaved rudely.
No it did not, and there is nothing ironic here at all. I knew full well what I was posting, and why.
BTW did the "Moderator" under you're name fall off? Oh the irony. lol
I think we both know full well what you were and are doing, and why, as well.
Nor shall I feed this particular troll any further.
