  Guilty.  I am guilty of not pointing out that the verbal attacks were
  unnecessary, rude and crude.  It should be noted that it reduced my
  opinion of the credibility of the name-callers by a large margin, but
  that does not relieve me of my guilt.  My response to these incidents
  when they happen to me has usually been to ignore the guilty party, to no
  longer acknowledge the person's responses -- even proper ones.

  This list has shown incredible intolerance toward other viewpoints. This
  intolerance is expected toward Microsoft propaganda because we have
  suffered their lies for a very long time, and Microsoft is even more
