I have a funny feeling that some people, when they feel that they are
in a logical corner, or their particular viewpoint is under-appreciated,
instead of either getting on with something else, finding a better
argument to justify their viewpoint, admitting they were wrong, or
whatever, react by calling a disagreement a personal attack.

having a fairly robust ego myself I don't do this; I go away and make
a salad, wash the dishes, drink a cup of coffee, go for a walk; and
calm down and, normally find out that just about 50% of what I percieved
to be problematic is my fault. Or I just laugh the whole thing off
by making some daft joke on the Use-List . . . anybody for a
purple dinosaur . . . or 2 ???

If one indulges in whacky humour then should realise that:

1. Not everyone will share your deep sense of fun.

2. You are going to get 'poo' thrown back at you sooner or later.

But, hey; I teach primary kids from 7 to 13 and constantly have
'poo' thrown at me: it is my "bread and butter" my lovelies.
