Had I responded to your post above while quoting you with a direct reply like "My god the douche bags on this board are amazing", it implies I am referring to you.
(note that unlike you, I have not resorted to calling you anything like "Thick", "Dense", "Slow", or any other personal attack, I'm simply putting this here as an example)
If I had responded to your post with "My god some of the douchebags on this board are amazing", while quoting you in my reply, it would still give the appearance that I was referring to you directly since you and I were having an argument.
Now if I had said something like "My god Grunt21, you are an amazing douchebag", then it would be very clear who I was referring to, with no ambiguity whatsoever. It would be impossible to misunderstand my intent or who it was directed to, while the first two are very easy to misunderstand.
Again these are just examples. I won't resort to name calling as you have already done.
