Doing it wrong until I do it right.

xvart: I have an opinion. That is my opinion that Ron Paul was the only decent Republican this year. I'm surprised you didn't realize that was an opinion. I find your post offensive especially since you're bashing me for an OPINION.
Neci - First, I misread your post and thought you said the only decent republican is Ron Paul (which isn't true, in my opinion), not was Ron Paul, with reference to the candidates. As you can see from the context of my post, I obviously meant the latter because I was talking about lumping everyone together, not just three or four people in a candidacy election bid. My apologies for misreading your post and responding, assuming I have your original intentions correct now.
Furthermore, it wasn't attacking you, bashing you, or being offensive you to you at all. You have an opinion? so do I (and again, my opinion was based on a totally different comment that wasn't really said). I can't tell someone they are wrong? And I can't tell someone what the problem with their comment is? If anything, I gave evidence and further discussion points to the republican/democrat split. But before this degrades into I have an opinion and you have an opinion commentary.
How was I supposed to know that your comment was your opinion? You didn't state that it was your opinion or even state it like an opinion. You stated it like it was a fact. Of course, I am just as guilty of that, too. But none of that really matters, it's all just semantics anyway. What matters is that I'm sorry and you have my apologies. I should have read your post more clearly and been more thoughtful in my response to your opinion. I will edit my original post.
Note: I'm not trying to be defensive here or finagle my way out of being a "bad guy." I'm just trying to explain how something can be confusing or possibly allow someone to think that another person is personally attacking him or her. Out of 3.5k posts, this has been the second time someone has said one is "offensive;" so, I hope my track record and past behavior speaks for itself and backs up the "non-malicious" intentions behind my original post.
