I can’t link or post to the comment in question since it was deleted, but the full conversation in question is here:
In this conversation, another person claims that if you’re accused of something, regardless of the evidence, that the suspicion is simply with you forever and that should rule you out from be a supreme court judge. So I made a claim that I have a friend that claims she was attacked by him. I get that if I just randomly made that accusation, it would be a personal attack. But in this case, as you can see with my other comments that didn’t get deleted, I made it clear that the friend was “imaginary” and that I am simply using this as a hypothetical example to criticize the logic this person used. I am clearly not insulting the other person. I’ve had the same tactic used in arguments against me and I never thought “OMG that person is seriously accusing me of something instead of simply trying to make a point through an example!”. If I clearly establish I am not actually accusing this person of anything at all, and that the accusation itself was a rather generic accusation simply used to make a point, and I say the person that made the accusation doesn’t even exist then how did the comment violate the rules here? There was no personal attack. There wasn’t any insult directed at the other person. It was just an argument and an example I used.
