Interesting how you choose to quote a something from a thread that already seems to have been deleted - and from my recollection the post was made several days ago. My line of "ferrets in a bag" (from the phrase "like ferrets fighting in a bag") was directly about three specific posters who had been bashing each other on several threads for days on end. I don't see how criticising people for indulging in personal attacks counts as abuse in itself.
Maybe you can explain the "hypocrisy", other than your attempt to portray the quip as a criticism of anyone who posts in HPC.
pure straw man, come on. I just thought if you're going to get up in here instead of minding your own business, I thought 'ferrets in a bag' (piling on at all, frankly) was unnecessary, and felt like reflecting it back; 'you're not the most circumspect poster one can be, yourself' and ffs you aren't! give us a break, you're making the most of even this. I was in a shit mood maybe like you were or are.
