So, did you not understand the question or simply think that you deserve more respect than Mr. Baker, a human being just like yourself?
The difference is I was responding to someone else calling Dusty Baker an ignoramus and was not talking directly to Dusty Baker in a rude and confrontational manner. My comments about Dusty were tongue-in-cheek while your insults were quite clearly based in anger and an intolerance of my opinion. I also clearly stated that Dusty is only an ignoramus with regard to one issue (sabermetrics and in-game strategy), while giving him props for being good at other things. You responded with mocking sarcasm and personal insults. You said I was ignorant even though I was right and you were wrong.
Feel free to disagree, just don't resort to personal insults of your fellow Redszoners because someone doesn't share your opinion.
