I was not alone in my impression.

 

 

Ok, I've commented on their post on February 12th. Lets see how long it stays up for.

My Comment:

"Is that why you made a pen celebrating the day of his assassination?"

 

Why would anyone leave such a purposely snotty comment? If you have comments of substance and hadn't abused them previously, you'd have reason for umbrage if they deleted, but in this case? Just being an ass. I've got less-than zero love lost for the jerk(s) involved in this misbegotten revival brand, but no one is impressed by clownish antics.

Well, I suppose someone might be.

Snotty commenting aside, I am actually legitimately confused at why they chose to remember the death and assassination of Lincoln instead of his birth. 

I am sorry if I offended anyone with my rude comment.

Well, I can side with the confusion. And honestly, very, very little offends me - I'm known to use colorful descriptors myself. I just figured that, if you *really* wanted info, when dealing with thin-skinned people like the E guy you would have to moderate your tone, if you get my drift.

Funny you say that, after my first comment was deleted (<1hr) I tried asking in a politer, more inquiring manner. I bet you can't guess what the response was.

You get that on the box and I don't want it.
