I'll cop to that and gladly; his work was morally repugnant and I
responded in kind.  And that last flame war came about when he posted
a story with my characters that I found offensive after I expressly
denied him permission.  If ever there was a cause for an attack, I
would say that was it.

But generally?  I don't think I attack people.
