Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
are not about my "suspect the English" lines: he's right on this (in pointing out that I'm consistently holding this line - let's leave the debate on whether the line itself is right to elsewhere) and I certainly don't blame him for pointing out this particular bias of mine.

But he's had a number of rather nasty comments to me in the past few months which I don't consider useful nor helpful, and I've pointed them out over time. I don't want to labor the point, but I will continue to call him out when he uses ad hominems (especially as he has more than enough substantial arguments to make his points)

I'm sorry to see two people who have contributed so much to ET being at loggerheads to the where their animosity effects the quality of debate in third party diaries/conversations because disagreements come to be seen as personal criticisms or ad hominems. I have no idea what caused this and thus no contribution to make to its resolution.  Can I respectfully suggest you guys have a private conversation to see if your differences can be overcome?
