I started this discussion; within TR's rules, I'll express myself in it as I damn well please. You're big on personal rights; do they apply only to you?
If you have problems with people being mentioned together, I suggest you take it up with the (former) editor of the newsletter. That's where I read the birthday updates. Any offense you may take from the birthday greetings I posted is entirely your own choice; don't take me to task. But while you're at it, feel free to froth at the mouth over these pairings: "Goldwater and Obama"; "Pelosi and Boehner"; "Founding Fathers and Gun Rights Opponents"; and to get really offensive, "Cowboys and Redskins".
If you think Ansu is a problem, have you considered not responding to him? Gods of us all, he publicly admits he's baiting you. You may want to hover your cursor over his avatar and click the 'Ignore' button; your choice.
If sticking "just between you and me" in the title of a public forum isn't "PC crap", I don't know what it is. If you really wanted something just between us; you know how peer messaging works.
EDITED - "You may want to hover your cursor over his avatar and click the 'Ignore' button; your choice." I've decided to take my own advice.
