What you call rude... What you call personal jabs are me calling you out on your obstinate dismissal of anything you don't hold up as reality.
Actually I wasn't referring to you... Mr B was commenting on the exchange between Yoyo and me and I was simply dissociating myself from his 'personal jabs' observation. That was Mr B's term incidentally not mine. Most people here seem to think that personal attacks are rude and unnecessary so if you think otherwise I'm sure we're all looking forward to your explanation.
More verbal pirouettes! You're on a roll today, km.
I didn't say personal attacks aren't rude. I'm making the distinction btwn personal attacks and calling a spade a spade. And please please please don't insult what little intelligence I posses by claiming that you weren't at least alluding, if nor referring, to my remarks. And no, it's not ego. Just acknowledging that I give you no quarter.
My 15 yr old does a better job of dodging the obvious. Still not good enough to avoid being caught by the old man, though. Tsk tsk...

That's what I'm saying - that my comment was purely defensive as opposed to offensive. I would concede that I appreciated it could have been misinterpreted as a backhanded attack, even one one on you, but that was never the motivation.
Noope. If they were the 'same things' the two words would have identical definitions. Partially overlapping definitions does not make them the same thing. Now in my copy of Oxford 'disprove' is not given. Nor is it given in Cambridge, Collins or Webster. Even if another edition of Oxford or any of the others include it as a secondary meaning I was using the primary meaning of 'expose the falseness of...'.
