In some circles providing excuses is providing cover. What am I supposed to do, though, have foresight into the content of your posts so that I know which ones to read or not? Perhaps I am supposed to go back in time and prevent myself from reading your post? There was nothing there that justified putting you on ignore, so the comment didn't make a whole lot of sense.

It's not an issue of liking it or not liking it, it's providing feedback. As I said, I have no idea why you bothered. He decided to bring Columbus into the conversation. He didn't have to. It was a decision on his part to insult the city. There is no fact that you brought to light that changes that fact, therefore you were providing an excuse or providing cover. You were trying to provide context in which his comments would be viewed as something than what they were.
