Wow! That is a great post Yorgo. Your honest views. No one can ask for more.
As you quoted me i will of course answer and respond to your views.

There is no qualification to my right to be insulted. It is a right I have that you can only give an opinion on. You cannot dictate whether that right should be afforded to me or not. Don’t be silly. Of course you then go on to say later that “A persons assumed right to insult me is equal to my right not to put up with it.”. Absolutely. I would not disagree with that one bit.
I’m sort of chuckling to myself at this point because, well, you then go on to insult members of this forum who you don’t know with “the many millions who are not of that characteristic who actually live to a standard whereby simply using a forum is based upon respect and ”....but I’m sure you don’t mean that it is just how it comes across to me, as anyone who does not meet your ‘standards’ Is not worthy of an opinion.
You have defined a characteristic that you fit into, expect other to do similar to the extent that if they don’t they are lesser people and should be excluded. Comes across as exceptionalism.
Not only have you the right to be insulted. You have the right to reply or leave the discussion for others to share whether you agree or not. Long may that continue.
