Conversely, if they are acting like an asshole they must want to be treated like an asshole.
So being the accommodating person that I am, I oblige.

I guess, due to your question marks, you do not understand my post. In your first post you say you were raised to follow the tenant of the Golden Rule.
As opposed to following this rule, you have reasoned it into "Act like an asshole, get treated like one." You seem to do so by making the presumption that everyone always follows the Golden Rule, thus if I simply treat people as I presume that they are treating me, then I am somehow acting benevolently toward them. This is close to the opposite of the premise of the Golden Rule and that is why I said you are twisting the logic.

Although I suspect any further discussion of this involves stuff like religion--in mine, forgiveness is left up to the individual, not mandated dogmatically.

No CSM for me.
You'll get no religious dogma from me, but I am curious though, just which religion is it that espouses, "Act like an asshole, get treated like one."

Finally, what is CSM?
