Putting my mod hat on, I will point out that one of the things we do act on is any direct questioning of a poster's mental state.

Removing it and replacing it on my capacious imaginary hatstand, the use of such terms can move from mild so extreme. I think that 'oddballs' can simply be read as not the norm, rather than anything else so I read Vlad as unjustified in the comparison on that occasion. But I don't see the comparison he made as being a crass one as a general point.

Pretty much agree.

I take exception to that highly unpleasant comment, >:( my adopted son has Down's Syndrome, a nicer person you couldn't wish to meet. You have overstepped the mark this time.
Vlad didn't suggest otherwise. He was criticising those who would make fun of Down's people.

"Him? Midge Ure?"
"Yes, very."

I apologise to Vlad if I read his post wrongly. I don't find his communications easy to follow.

I think I too owe Vlad an apology, since I clearly misinterpreted what he was saying - so sorry, Vlad.
