Subject: RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)
I am not sure,where folks,got the idea that speaking ill of a dead public figure is taboo. Just as Frank has the right to state his opinion of Pete, one in which I mostly agree with, so garg has the right to give his opinion on the same public figure.
Dick Miles, criticizing the subject of a thread is not a personal attack. Criticizing, using ad hominem attacks is. Methinks you are splitting hairs and projecting a bit. If you read Joe's post carefully, and pay attention to the distinctions, you will understand the difference between criticism and personal attack.
