Now why does a polite response to a post with some facts about dealing with a council make someone an idiot?


Statistics show that those with the most birthdays live longest.


A polite response it was, yes.

A factual response too, yes.


But nevertheless, there are time when such a polite factual response is still not appropriate in a delicate scenario. I think Tim & June's reference to idiocy was becuase of *that*, and frankly I agree with them.


However, I would like to add that I think what was *done* was "idiotic", rather than to assert that those who *did* it were "idiots".


The former is to judge the action, and in my book preferable to the latter which is judging the person.


Is that clear for you all?
