Unnecessary insults

I stated in my letter in the July 15 edition that all suburbs should have public housing.

It is a shame he is too keen to argue as this prevents him from reading the letter properly, preferring instead to insult the writer.

The Opinion column is a forum for the sharing of ideas and for someone who purports to hold ideals of equality you certainly do not show respect for the opinions of others when you argue the person and not the idea.
