Actually, It's G HOUCK, my first initial (G) and my last name (Houck). It sounds like Gee-How-k (Now I just have to get Rev to SPELL it right. You'd think a bartender could spell better than that
Sometimes I sample my own inventory.
In all seriousness, I am glad this thread defused. I got here late and missed most of the fireworks.
It's not unusual for people who love to debate to refuse to quit even when it's clear the argument isn't going anywhere. I find that if a debate with a single individual goes on for more than two exchanges of posts, the other person usually has their mind made up on the issue and nothing I can say is going to change it. At that point, no matter how right I think I am, I find it's best to stop responding; continuing to debate is pointless, I'm not going to change someone's mind.
Hopefully people can remember to always make it clear that they're arguing against the other person's OPINION, not attacking the other person directly. But in the heat of argument it's very likely that personal attacks will occur, or that people will interpret a difference in opinion as a personal attack. You have to have a thick skin if you're going to get into these types of highly divisive debates.
