    One really cool thing is that he now has lifetime access to the tomb "quarters" where those on duty live and practice. I'm planning a trip with him very soon, if he is up to it, to show my kids around Arlington.

Other than my response to you, I referenced no other member of this forum.

    False, I did not bring you up.

    I said nothing about you, only your rhetorical style of posting. That's not you. It's probably cultural.

    I did not denigrate you. Why do you make these things up? Anyone can go back and see what I posted. It was not a personal denigration.

    No one said you couldn't express your opinions. Though I do think talking about yourself should be excluded same as talking about other members. It's off-topic after all.

    False. Period. Your words:
    Except, in fact, we don't go at it. Who will post opinion A, I will address her opinion A and counter with opinion B, and then Who will quote me and reply with opinion C having nothing whatsoever to do with either her opinio A or my opinion B. It may look like a discussion but isn't. As of late I have pushed her back to A and B and she gets irritated.

    Perhaps she's French because French rhetoric has that roundabout style and opposed to the more straightforward British and American style.

    (Please, I am talking about posting style and not her personally. Unlike her who when she gets irritated attacks personally.)

    ((And as I post this I wonder again why a town hall keeps drifting into talking about members.))

Like I said, anyone can read that post and see the words "Who will post opinion A, I will address her opinion A and counter with opinion B, and then Who will quote me and reply "--that's talking about your posting.

    That's quite different than the following example of rudely talking about another person, that is "Unlike her who when she gets irritated attacks personally":

    Or should we return to your call out against me using Latin, of all silly things.
