Actually Tom, I was referring to the second definition.

swine (swīn) n., pl. swine.
  1. Any of various omnivorous, even-toed ungulates of the family Suidae, including pigs, hogs, and boars, having a stout body with thick skin, a short neck, and a movable snout.
  2. A person regarded as brutish or contemptible.

Having read your comments at Roeser's blog, I can understand why others could easily come to the conclusion that you were slamming his weight. When you refer to his "shamelessly porcine figure" in responding to his comments about Sheila Simon's appearance, it's hard to think otherwise even if that was not your intent.

One other question - why do you use a pseudonym and what does it mean? I'm not being sarcastic or trying to score a point. I've read a lot of your comments online over the years and I've always wondered about this.

I love Roeser's statement about Sheila Simon's name: "Everybody knows she’s Paul Simon’s kid anyhow; while married, she has chosen to carry the family name."

It appears to be a slam on women who keep "their name", but of course, nothing in the post is particularly coherent.
