    while you might have a point in stressing the responsibility for people for their own body (and soul) the generalization was uncalled for.

    Most phenomena are not caused by a single root cause. If Suzies example was well chosen is also not really relevant here. You committed a blunder in the level of relationship and it would be great if you could realize that and post accordingly.

    For your own sake and out of deference to the genetic predispositions or medical issues of others and in consideration for their sensibilities, perhaps invest a little more time in thinking about your words before clicking [Post]. Thank you.

    But don't let me stand in the way of your stereotypes.
    I think this comment is one of the most racist arrogant and patronising posts I have ever read.
    Now I understand why the Native Americans hate people like Suzzi so much.

    What?!?

    Are you serious?

    Everything I posted is a well-known fact in the US. Especially where I live, which is in Arizona, in relative close proximity to these Native American tribes. The white man ruined their lifestyle and their health, and it's way past time that something was done about it. Your own post about diabetics was extremely rude, arrogant and patronizing, yet you now turn that around on me? And racist? Get serious!!

    And on a lighter note, I think I will retire to the sitting room of the Reform Club for a postprandial snifter of brandy and a game of chess.

    It appears that what started as a postprandial vocabulary lesson (dessert for the literati, so to speak) has degenerated into an inflammatory slinging of diatribe and argle-bargle.
    But a note of caution to the sanctimonious few among you:

    The rude, inconsiderate, and even vitriolic tone of those who lashed out at the corpulence and sloth of people with type 2 diabetes, does not impugn the fundemental veracity of what they were saying.
    If you have pre-diabetes or are in the early stages of type 2,
    you may have a chance of reversing it if you act decisively and immediately!
    Walk 4 miles a day, eat copious amounts of vegetables, eat yogurt and oats for breakfast, lose 30 pounds, and keep the faith.
    And for heaven's sake, jettison the french fries and soda pop!

    phileasfogg, first I for one appreciate the objectivity of your initial sentence prefix phrase: "It appears..." Certainly a rare event on this forum. Second, there's another aspect of my posting the contemporary slang word " argle-bargle" you should be aware of in the context of your understandably critical reply. I simply misread this thread's title: "Word of the day: Postprandial" as an invitation to contribute additional words. My apology to sonhouse and to anyone else it may have offended. By the way, my residence was also in California years ago. -Bob

    @Grampy Bobby:
    Actually, my only criticism was of the inane ranting and mudslinging (and that was slightly tongue in cheek).
    I had never heard the word "argle-bargle". It seemed like a cool word so I tried to fit it in.
    I came to this post because I like words. The more new and interesting ones, the better.
