When the did bringing spouses into these conversations become acceptable? I get that 'Fresh' hoisted himself on his on petard with the Facebook mistake. He did throw out the challenge that his wife could take care of business. 

But there's a line that is usually drawn.

Off to enjoy a day of California sunshine. Maybe when I come back, some gentlemanly discussion here might lead to a return to civility.

Not speaking about them, speaking of them.  Big difference. Trying to appeal to their sense of ownership. 

Would challenge to see if they are bothered but as of yet no one has crossed any make believe barrier.  Did hear that Paula would indeed be quick to draw, Scotty says she has a temper, Native American he volunteered.

  Except the one who said I didn't serve in the armed forces, called us ALL racists just because we live in the South, called me a sexual deviant, called for the assasination of the POTUS.  I guess since we haven't had a 'poor duaine' post in awhile, this will serve as one.  I see far more harm and your defense of Duaine is noble, I just don't care sir.  So Bill, for freshyturd's sake, are you saying that Will is Dewey, who is Huey, who is Duaine?   Have you established that?

P.S.  There is a thread here about return to civility.  Many say it isn't going to happen with this president [Duaine, among others] and we say it didn't happen with the last president or the next president.

First, to bluedog...Thanks for remembering I'm a married man. I certainly don't need the internet and a firm grip. [biggrin]

kiir- I've gone on record as to admonishing any who could have mitigated the situation directed to you by that vile poster. Posts should have been stricken, the poster should have been permabanned and given the scope of assertions, some cooperation in identifying the culprit was prudent. That nothing of note was done is reprehensible. 

While I would rather be active in solution, considering dropping UCS off my daily dose of interwebs consumption. The lack of explanation as to why those posts were allowed would be the primary tipping point.

My interest in softball has been renewed. That said, this place has soured me on what had been a bit of occasional tolerable rancor versus what has now become something more than just a gripe. Or even grip.

I'll grapple with the thought of exclusively staying on the softball side of UCS.

BTW, understand your point 'about them, just of them', but liken that to those that claim they 'don't hate me, just my message'. To me, that's just massaging words. Kinda like a firm grip on semantics, if you know what I mean.

Edited for this PS...

I know Huey is Dewey. There is no Louie. WIW is certainly not me and has never been revealed if he, she or Donald's nephew. That said, the lack of denial is fairly damning.
