Well, there's a loaded question if I ever saw one. The answer is clearly 
"no," but it's an incorrect assumption that "not sitting back" is the 
same as "being rude in response." Again, the idea that it is acceptable 
to respond to "false accusations" with snide comments is exactly what we 
need to put an end to. If someone says something you disagree with, 
assume good faith and talk it out calmly and patiently. This is basic 
stuff that we shouldn't have to debate.
