What I said was "You're being a dick".

I can go into the intricacies of the English grammar and tell you that tense aspects used matter a great deal ("you are X" vs. "you're being X"), but you're not the one for "useless pedantry", are you?

I pointed out what I saw as a blatantly disrespectful comment with the most straightforward way I could think of. I could've sassed you. I could've said nothing. Instead, I chose to be honest and compassionate with you. You are a function of the shit you're going through, and I pointed out as much to let you know that I don't think of you as a flawed human being. I think of you as someone who's making a mistake by saying something so properly fucked. I said as much in the most concise way I could think of.

You went into defensive because of that. I understand. But I don't like bullshit. I even have a separate rule for not having any in my life. I'm not the guy to follow rules and regulations - and I have a rule for that. I'd rather call you out for acting like a dick to a fellow Hubskier, and I'd rather you do the same if you see me doing it. At least that way, we aren't stuck in the fog.

How about next time you use a word like 'flippant' instead of relying on subtleties of present continuous?

Not effectively in my experience

Imgur is file extension name agnostic so you can rename a gif as a jpeg and it'll embed here

Well, if that is the part you want to criticize, then I reckon you heard me.

Nope

Then, by all means, enjoy the ride.
