Absolutely, I do it *every* time someone else responds respectfully. That happens very little; people get EXTREMELY adversarial. I *will* respond in kind every time.

Actually, that's not true. Some of them make me laugh too much and I don't respond in kind. But usually I do, and will.

Thank you for this post, however.

I despise argumenta ad hominem; they're nonsensical horse diarrhea. But I lose patience quickly and *will* engage in them deliberately and specifically as against someone attempting to deploy them in an argument against me. And you know what? No one will ever admit it, but it *DOES* make the point pretty damn fast.
