Having been called an asshole by one of our communitarians provides the impetus to comment. Sob, sob (I feel better now, thank you). Sticks and stones, et cetera.
If I can’t go to Planned Parenthood for a routine pap smear without being screamed at and harassed by Christian protestors then Stephen Miller shouldn’t be able to eat his fucking salad without being called an asshole.

Funk the arbiters of civility!
Some of us disagree with some others. We are strong enough to tolerate disagreement. There is no hatred here, and little vitriol that I've seen.
Macabre, murderous circuses like Charlottesville and the corresponding media furor do not shake us from our principles of reason, truth, and civility. They do not destroy our friendships.
I’m angry. As many of us know, what’s often behind anger is hurt. So, I’ll admit that my anger is stemming feeling hurt. Why? Because the political is personal.
