Muffin, you are confusing criticism with ad hominem. In my view, Flex's comments were naive. That is not an "attack" on Flex as a person, but a criticism of his approach. In a thread elsewhere, Cort has commented that he questions the accuracy of some of the content of Hillary Johnson's articles and opinion pieces and that her robust style of advocacy can make him "squirm". Is that an "attack" on Hillary or criticism on the part of Cort?
