I did not call you names, I called your statement/position/opinion names. There is a difference. In Court the distinction is enforced.
While physically in Court we can call one's argument /statements absurd or ridiculous, but most Judges and State Bars prohibit direct verbal attacks on opposing counsel or the Judge [albeit unprofessionally many lawyers still call each other names in their pleadings and letters].
