Yes, it is personal. But it is not what you were whining about. It was said the DAY AFTER you started whining.
Were you whining preemptively? Or was it something else that start you off? Maybe this? Maybe you think it was "a personal attack" But I think it was in proportion to your opening salvo against the cave men who allow boxing to continue.

Used to box ABA myself. Really enjoyed it and so did all the other lads.
Obviously, strict regulation around safety and the point of boxing (not punching the shit out of the other lad but landing contact through his guard and earning points) always need reinforcing same as in any sport and the pressure in the professional game can ruin it just like football and cricket suffers.
McColl's radio ballad "The fighting game" takes me back in a very nostalgic way.
If you don't understand, don't automatically think your sanctimonious stance makes you look clever. The only thing nauseating here is reading your withering diatribe.
