Actually, you are the one engaging in ad hominem attacks here, by
making statements about me personally while failing to address the
valid points I make at all.

On the other hand, neither of my passages you quote are ad hominem at
all, since they refer to my past experiences at which none of the
active participants in this thread were present.  And the claim about
venom is manifestly false: there is no venom in this post.

When did you change your mind in this discussion, and about what?  I
missed it: it seems to me you advocate the same conservative position
in the same words as when you first entered the discussion.
