No, it wasn't. My response, the first to you, was in no way a response to an insult. Your continued attempts to paint yourself as an aggrieved party are doing more to call your own motivations into question than anything else anyone here has done.It would explain it to some degree if the responses weren't invariably so extreme, regardless of circumstances.
It would be one thing if I'd been the one to actually broach the subject (which I was not), or if I had been using it as an insult. But I was neutral. And yet, not only was the response the same as if I'd been using it as an insult, my motivations have been called into question.
The person who "broached the subject" was doing so in a joking fashion. Not a true "broaching of the subject", as you are claiming.
Noone's called your motivations into question, directly. The thing is, once again, you are fighting a battle against posting history.
