Sometimes, when a horse is dead, it is time to stop beating it -

let alone dragging it into a new OP and starting to beat it again.

11. Yeah, I know, but I wanted to say something about this type of thread in general.

I really have no idea what the other thread is about, and I really don't care. It's the fighting that gets to me.


I also want to apologize to anyone who doesn't know what the other thread is, but I'm afraid if I link to it, it's adding fuel to the fire!

5. Heck I bet WillyT doesn't post any cartoons anymore. lol Really after him.

Some won't let it alone.

I found the large version of that cartoon at the WP...it said on the front of the podium "Fighting Cyber Crime". There are many links in 2013 to the Chinese hacking us, so I, Willy, and many others saw it as a cartoon about hacking.

This really is beating a dead horse. WillyT served his time graciously. Leave him alone now.

10. The current example isn't the only one - we don't need these

circular firing squads. I don't need to hear about a post from three weeks ago, or how so-and-so was wrong and/or exaggerated about something in anther post. I really don't need to know that if I were paying attention, I'd know all about how "they" are trying to drive someone away from DU. Most of the time, I have no idea what the fight is about. Way to make newcomers feel part of the gang, folks!


If I want mean, I can go to any number of right wing web sites. DU isn't the place for it.

12. Sometimes, when you feed peanut butter to a horse, it makes it look like he's talking!
