Unwillingness to Listen
It's terrible that the temper of gentlemen should grow so vinegary that they throw stones, and shout, and are unwilling to listen to something evenly balanced...S. Douglas Olson ad loc.:
δεινὸν γὰρ οὕτως ὀμφακίαν πεφυκέναι
τὸν θυμὸν ἀνδρῶν ὥστε βάλλειν καὶ βοᾶν
ἐθέλειν τ᾿ ἀκοῦσαι μηδὲν ἴσον ἴσῳ φέρον...
