    Congradulations on your victory.

    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    Deliberately and disingenuously 'misunderstanding' and misrepresenting someone is a sophomoric debating tactic. I would have thought it beneath you, except this is not the first time I've noticed you resort to such silliness. Are you just lobbing bombs for your own perverse amusement, or are the behavioral requirements of the rest of your life so stringent that you must come here to act out in such a fashion? I do wish you'd try harder.

    I take it that you didn't see the post I was responding to, which is now gone? Don't let that stop you assuming and adopting a position of presumptuous superiority.

    For your information, people have been gaoled / jailed for 35 years for similar comments. Old mate just perma-banned himself from being able to visit one of the world's most fascinating countries.

    Ah... but I did see the 'objectionable' post. I agree it was edgy. But the thrust of his comment wasn't as you portray it. No need to respond... I'm just giving you some feedback: you are being transparently disingenuous by choosing to take offense in a fashion that it wasn't intended. By seizing that tiny crevice of an opening, then deliberately prying it open far enough to insert your proxy faux outrage, you are playing the fool. All I'm doing is telling you people noticed. No amount of doubling down will change that.

    It just disappoints me when people who are fully capable of informed, adult, conversation... choose dishonesty instead.

    What would your reaction be if someone attacked your partner in the same way? If they found it as offensive as my partner did?

    The BOTH apparently has been 'banned'.

    Anyone know for how long?

    we all have been cyber bullies. Many are button mashers. I would have mashed if inflamitory words were pointed at someone I cared about. Obviously we are big boys and girls here. Policing ourselves is key to our civility. I am disappointed that Scott got involved due to thread direction not being kindly self monitored.

    Last year I was banned for political commentary regarding abortion denials. Jack enjoyed mashing the button and Scott saw it fit to ban me due to Jacks emotional outraged response. I found the time away much of a relief and now take this forum with the grain of salt it deserves. I hope those guys find fun and adventure elsewhere.

    Be careful in looking up the Stag magazine forum - you might be surprised by threads and self expressions...

    I saw the post. While I agree that it should not have been made, it must be a sorry country that would jail someone for 35 years and perma-ban someone for that remark. I'm glad we have more freedom to speak here in this country.

    As usual, you make another unwarranted assumption. If you had seen the activity, you would have seen that Glen said he was pushing the button.

    Let me ask you a question. What would you do if someone labeled a photo of your wife on the forum with a term that she regarded as highly insulting?

    Not as low as you though. Like others, you are making assumptions without facts, but beyond that you have moved into cyberbullying mode. That's what using names is when a person chooses not to use their name, but someone outs them. Did it make you feel better?

    Of course. But it was the two of them who chose to firstly pick a fight, secondly to get down in the gutter and thirdly, for one of them at least, to push the button.

    Meanwhile, I'm quite enjoying the life. It's quite fun, trying to figure out just how many servants there are at this house. I'm getting confused between adoptees and servants. If the adoptees and their children are included it's about a dozen. I'm feeling quite pampered

    If somebody did that, Lew wouldn't need to push the button. I'd be hitting it like it was Nintendo Track&Field.

    But then, Lew wouldn't post a picture of a loved one to score points in an internet slap fight. There's your difference, and if you're still lost, it's right around the locus of courtesy, dignity, and mutual respect.

    Ya know Ian I like ya. Probably more than I should But you're hands aren't always clean in these situations. Just saying. You do play close to the banning edge quite well. Oh and FWIW I kinda like Ozabrag & Glen more.

    Wanna be a truly cool dude take a look in the mirror and own your sh!te every now and then. Just a "friendly" suggestion.

    I'm gonna miss Ozabrag & Glen
