So, only you can be contentious...when someone gets contentious with you in turn, they're to be denounced as a "hypocrite" and as "contentious" themselves?
LOL..excellent. This is clearly what you want, not debate. You're just a Denier with a taste for arguing minutiae, IOW.
I really don't care if you are contentious or if I'm contentious or if anyone else is. You were the one who was so concerned about my statement about warming resuming being contentious. I've never lectured anyone about whether their posts are debate or contentiousness. It seems funny to me that if you have posted here for any length of time you would have realized everyone here likes to argue, so not sure why a quote from NOAA gets me singled out as the one not wanting a debate.
