As honourable as it may seem to come to the aid of the fair maiden, there is no validity to the statement. This is not a discussion over semantics, it is a discussion over being wrong. Really it's about a poster being wrong, not accepting it, getting upset, then wondering why everyone is being so mean to him. Rather than just shrug it off, it became this:

When I said two-way I implied that it meant he could be brought up and down. There are several different ways that could happen, obviously, and I don't think that there's any reason to spit out the whole CBA every time I make a point. So take your little *****-fest elsewhere, please.
