    I liked that thread though, thought I'd observe a respectful mourning period and then jolt some life into a zombie.....

    Between the trolls and Scot, there isn't much point in posting anything substantial, which is why I don't bother anymore.

    3. Insist that the game is valid ONLY if played by YOUR rules

    4. Rush, yapping and snarling, around the perimeter of your little querencia, pretending your foe wants and is trying to take it and ignoring all attempts to move to more significant ground

    5. Proclaim successful defence against an attack that never was. Another victory!

    Classic internet tactic.

    I wondered what happened to it.

    For the record I never meant it to be a attack thread , just a thread where there were great posts with sharp wit.

    It's really hard to tell. To help us distinguish in the future... give us examples of threads you've started intending them to be attack threads. I'm sure the comparison would help us better understand.

    It's not hard to understand what I just wrote, you just have to take it at face value rather then try and find some sinister motive lurking about.

    I feel bad my thread was gone.

    Not because I started it but because there was great wit shown.

    I NEVER Used it to attack anyone..

    In fact I ignored people attacking me on my own thread.

    However libs trolled in with attack posts in a effort to ruin it.

    To bad they could not enjoy other liberals use of wit...

    Who were the "brave" people pushing the button.

    More then likely it was a lib mad the thread had a lot of posts

    not much sense of putting too much time or effort into this place..

    For the record I posted great wit no matter who said it.

    I've never known anyone from either category, and am a little surprised Mr Cleek does.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.
