Alan, you too are a real gentleman and a visibly an honorable person
When someone comes along with the intention of giving intentional
offense, while the offender may get his/her ego bloated, IMHO it all looks
very dumb and stupid and mostly I treat them gently with the hope that they
will over time realize their own stupidity. Also most of these intentional
offense givers give up when no one engages them seriously or give them a
dose of their own medicine. Since we need more newbees to keep this list and
Theosophy alive and flourish, I usually try to be a lot more tolerant with
them (newbees) compared to battle seasoned veterans.
