    I have had few dealings with Deep Thought. Of the ones that I have had, I have found Deep Thought to be considered, courteous, and genuine. The notion of "attacking" them is a nonesense, and reflects your personal standards and inclinations. I can disagree with people and remain on good terms; unlike you I don't have to get into a war. Deep Thought is OK by me. ...[text shortened]... eap shots and wasting your clear intellect because you can't control that mean streak inside of you.
    So Medullah regards it as acceptable for DeepThought (a fellow Brit)
    to write X but wrong and offensive for me to write the same thing

    That shows Medullah's ad hominem nature in addition to a typical standard of tribal enmity at RHP.

    Note that Medullah seemed enraged when I pointed out his blatant errors extolling Japan and Belarus in responding to the pandemic.

    Does Medullah believe in attacking the person, not what the person writes?

    No Duchess. Deep thought has written nothing offensive.

    Let me tell you a little about me

    I love women. My last boss was white female. The one before black female. The one before white male. My current one is black (Asian) male. I love people, I don’t see race.

    I'm not enraged by anyone. You'd have to kick my dog before I got enraged and then nothing in body armour could protect you from my wrath (seriously).

    My best friends are Asian. I hate racists (any colour please take special note). I am a humanitarian. I am appalled by the evil that has been done upon women. My best friend was a hermaphrodite called Michael that became Michelle. I was beaten senseless by an aggressive Catholic mother until the authorities took me out of the family home for my own safety. I am a white dude who associated with Punjabis who swore that I was a Seek in my past life. My anchor was a black brother (Afro-Caribbean) in Wellingborough (Northamptonshire England).

    You are not actually offensive, just silly. Let’s have a non-rated game, clear the air and see if we can’t find common ground? I’m certain that you have a huge amount of very valid things to say but aren’t getting your point across.

    Stop being a tit !!

    Didn't his Asian friends ever teach Medullah that a 'Seek' (sic) is a Sikh?

    All this personal background is irrelevant.

    "Japan and Belarus seem to be the countries that have handled the crises best."
    --Medullah

    As I already pointed out citing statistics, this is false.

    Was I bothered by Medullah's ignorance?
    Not really. But when Medullah aggressively 'doubled down' and
    kept insisting he was right, his close-minded arrogance or dishonesty bothered me.

    When a mathematics student makes an error, he or she should just admit it and learn.
    It does bother me if that student keeps obstinately denying error.
    Telling me a personal story hoping to gain my sympathy is irrelevant.

    That said, if a student confided to me that, say, she had just been raped
    and was traumatized, I would give her more time to complete her course work.
    But I could not agree to judge her work by a lower standard.

    My point is that, as a teacher, I cannot give preferential grades to students whom I like more

    Dude!
    I should've warned you.
    Kissing up to her doesn't work.
    It just emboldens her.
    She then tries to humiliate using one's own kindnesses against them.

    Just ask Sonhouse or Tom Wolsey.

    Deal with Duchess64 like you'd deal with an Iguana. Keep her in a terrarium, and feed her cockroaches. She deserves nothing more. 😁

    Note Wolfe63's frantic insecurity as he butts into another writer"s attempt to communicate with me.

    Note that Wolfe63 failed to convince KingDavid403.
    Without my ever asking for or expecting it,
    King David declared in public that he's my friend.
    Several trolls then tried their hardest to bully him into a retraction.

    Medullah, it's nice if you really are as non-racist as you claim.

    My criticisms on facts are meant to be objective.
    It does not matter how much I may like you.

    Oswald Teichmuller was a brilliant mathematician and an ardent Nazi.
    I would judge his mathematics and politics separately.

    Finnegan was my closest friend in public at RHP.
    He and I more or less agreed nearly all the time.
    He admired my intelligence, erudition, and integrity.
    He was a strong critic of US capitalism, imperialism, and racism.

    Finnegan was a scathing critic of many right-wing Americans who often are Wolfe63's allies.

    As an aside (but certainly on the subject of the title of this thread)

    I see RHP have deleted yet again a 'death list' thread, started by the usual suspect, this time in Debates.

    Hopefully we will see no more

    This is quite instructive.

    This is Senator Scott Jensen who is also a practicing Helathcare Professional discussing the whole issue of that way that C19 numbers are formulated in the USA. Note that somebody appears to have tried to lean on him and he isn't having it.

    No it isn't false.

    The key word was "seem". It was an opinion, that as a matter of fact wasn't that wide of the mark.

    I had a really interesting manager back in the day who told me to "pick my fights"; it was good advice. If you are constantly appearing to clash with people then insterad of onlookers taking note it will be "oh there is so and so kicking off again".

    Does Medullah want to attack DeepThought personally
    as much as he loves to attack me for arriving at the same conclusion?
    Does Duchess64 know it is completely hypocritical and highly offensive to accuse somebody else of personal attack when she herself is constantly making unprovoked personal attacks on many other posters here especially if that accusation of somebody else making a personal attack is clearly a false accusation anyway?
    Merely rightly or wrongly explicitly disagreeing with somebody else's opinion/assertion doesn't equate with a personal attack let alone a bad one.
    I often disagree with a friend without that being part of a personal attack or automatically mindlessly calling him "racist" just because he doesn't agree with me on something. Calling somebody "racist" without evidence that he is certainly is a very bad personal attack and one that should be condemned. No doubt if your past behavior is anything to go by you will now probably moronically prove my point by responding by calling me "racist" even though like in all my posts this post contains nothing implying a racist view.

    So he thinks the count is inflated. A nice republican stance. The fact is the numbers are UNDER reported because of cases all over the US that produced deaths in outlying communities with not much in the way of autopsies and such and are put down to the first thing they find, heart disease or something that was because of the virus, but not recognized.

    But republicans would never consider THAT in their political calculus designed to make it look like everything is A OK and lets get back to those gym shops sweating and puffing right next to the girl next to you also huffing and puffing away on a machine, or having huge Trumpite rallies with no PPE, what could POSSIBLY go wrong?
