I might add, and correct me if I'm wrong, Moti, that if and when one gets
flamed or flames, or jumped on in the forum, it is kept within the sequence
of posts for the particular subject, not carried throughout the various
subject posts. So, if someone posted that xxxx rikishi is a turd, and
someone else vehemently disagrees and starts calling the poster names,
flaming in other ways, etc., and the reader doesn't like all that, he or she
need just not click on that subject since there are myriad others. All of
the postings on that subject doesn't just get delivered to your mailbox, you
choose which threads interest you and which you care to read. 

I'm sure you can explain this better than I did.

When you make "outrageous" declararions (Asa's 100 yushos, for an
example..) you're likely to get "jumped on"  in the supermarket as well. 
You're a "colorful" guy, sometimes a borderline instigating provocateur (I
mean that in a "good" way) so you are a "jump on" magnet. You get "jumped
on" on the ML quite often as well, IIRC.
Still, I saw you post many times on the forum and don't recall any serious
"jumping" being done on you.
As for the flame wars here, I checked the posters and didn't really see many
"holier than thous" there either.
We are more the pot calling the kettle old, and pointing you, (additionally
to your kettle) to an electric hot water pot with all its cool functions
(keep warm, boil, flame, do not put in eater while connected to socket,
