And remember how the radio stations activated the Emergency Broadcast System... (oh wait...)

 
Duck and cover! Hilarious...They were still watching the testing from short range and teaching us duck and cover.{#Flamed}

I need wireless headphones for my office. I'm getting tired of nearly ripping my head off when I forget I'm wearing my phones then get up and walk away from my computer.

I wouldn't sweat it kurtster,  you have been here long enough to know that credential listing happens all the time when things get heated.  Some get called on it, some don't.  It all depends on which way the wind is blowing.
 
No worries.  Just calmly making a point when I feel that it is necessary.

You may be right about that.  Once upon a time we had the journals where things like this would be discussed instead of over here.

That said, when my basic intelligence is directly attacked and called into question, I am going to defend myself against a personal attack.  

I found the remark I was responding to demeaning and contemptuous:

The OED changes, adapts and expands faster and more deeply than you understand. 

A better way to make that statement would have been:

The OED is a very dynamic work that may be hard to keep up with.

Had it been expressed that way or something equally generic and non offensive, I would not have even thought of responding.  There would be nothing to respond to.  I go way out of my way to avoid making remarks that can take on this kind of interpretation.  Obviously doesn't do me any good ...

So instead you mock me for defending myself.

If your were a mensch, you would have said this to me directly ...

Should I make an equally presumptive and offensive remark to you by saying that you agree with the statement I am objecting to and agree with the sentiment ?

peace out ...
