Where we once again see Malor is incapable of making his arguments stand on their own merits.

I've asked in the past that Malor decline from bringing my name into threads
when I'm not participating, especially so in a derogatory manner. The Mods have supported this request, not only in my thread (linked) but across other threads & topics.
Therefore we know this is generally accepted as good etiquette on Metafilter, and these are the good manners I practice on Metafilter.
However it seems like this evening we've had another cry for attention from Malor
. I just got home from University, wasn't participating nor reading Metafilter, in fact I was tracking the end of day, watching Bloomberg TV when I'll be darned, several people email me another of Malor's backstabbing, classless comments referencing my name.
I've read the fine print at the bottom of each page
"Note: Help maintain a healthy, respectful discussion by focusing comments on the issues, topics, and facts at hand—not at other members of the site."
I remind Malor and The Mods that I am not the topic of that thread. I am not participating in that thread. The core issue of the thread, AIG and statements by a specific employee of AIG, seem far removed from from the direction Malor is intent upon moving it towards: who was consistently right but unappreciated, a lone voice calling out from the darkness since 2004
. The fundamental problem, therefore, is Malor consistently beating the same dead horse, time after time again in any thread that is remotely related to finance, compounded by seemingly flaunting the rules, attacking non participants - myself - at will.
I once again suggest Malor devote his energies to discussing the topic, and not in ways that seem destined to bring my name into the discussion, at least in a negative / derogatory manner.
Malor someday we will run into each other at a meetup. We can discuss this lack of manners then, but until that time leave my name out of your comments.
