Aaron,

***"when I say that you are not worth my time." Self-righteous comment.***

That's not what self-righteousness means.

***Like Richard you must resort to name calling to support your point.***

It's not name calling, it is citing that you are in a particular state. Name calling is a negative classification of a person that has to do with something that person cannot change by changing a state. For example, if I said that you were ignorant, you can come out of ignorance either by showing that you know the knowledge that you said not to know, or by learning what you are said not to know. If I called you 'dumb', then there is nothing you can do but remain dumb. The former is appropriate if said under certain situations, and the latter is never acceptable. Name calling is often centered on words like 'idiot', 'dummy', 'stupid', etc.

Warm regards, Harv
