It would seem that Kilo is throwing down a rather hefty gauntlet this morning, accusing Waldo Jaquith of falsely attributing a comment on this thread to Carl.
Personally, I can see how Waldo could've done this inadvertently -- most likely by mis-identifying the IP address which originated the comment. For instance, if the commenter in question happened to live in the same city as Carl, the address which showed up might have been in the same general range as Kilo's.
I am fond of both gentlemen in question, so I'm not going to pick sides. They have both been admirable representatives of each side of the Commonwealth's blogosphere. But seriously? I know we've all gotten our feathers in a ruffle after this past Tuesday's primary elections, but we really don't need to be so uncivil with each other, do we? If Waldo made a mistake, I trust him to have the integrity to admit it. And if he didn't make a mistake, then I expect he'll offer evidence to bolster his position.
Either way, I think we'd all be advised to step back a bit, take a deep breath, and do our best to conduct ourselves in a manner appropriate of the esteemed title, "Virginian."
Update: Waldo lays out his evidence, plus more via e-mail. I must say, I've been known to go on various blogs and post pseudonymous comments which are irreverent, but I generally only do so on blogs which condone that type of thing, and try to keep it funny. To do so in a serious manner on a political blog, in the middle of a serious discussion, tends to have another definition.
I'll be waiting to hear what Carl has to say in response.
