Subject: RE: BS: Boxing; cruel, primitive & nauseating
BTNG must be kinda' off or something.....He posted this:

"ad hominem (Latin for "to the man" or "to the person")
short for argumentum ad hominem
note: single "d" it's Latin not English"

Does he mean men eat hominy or what? That's the only way a guy can get hominy inside him so adding hominy must be the answer. Or does he mean giving somebody a can of hominy. If so, I'd like some canned spinach too......and some eggs....but no eggs in a can. Just add the fresh eggs to the canned hominy and then you have a meal! One thing sure, you won't get no "argumentum" from me even if you can't spell that right either. The word is "argument."

This ain't no Latin forum but if some Latin type wants to post here like Antonio Banderas or Rita Moreno then I would expect them to also use the proper English spelling. Are you, BTNG, of Latin heritage? If so, I guess it will be okay to "ad" hominy if you want. Just bring eggs and I won't have any argumentum with that..
