    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    At the risk of encouraging further participation from someone who has shown themselves to be incapable/unwilling to contribute anything of substance... his sense of humor could be delicious. On occasion.

    Too bad he was unable to parlay that into anything MORE than the occasional witticism. Every time he attempted it - it was painfully pathetic, confused, and muddled. I guess that's what happens when you insist on molding the fact, data, and logic to contort to your poorly-conceived preconceptions...

    Why any cogent person engages with the Stumps on this forum is beyond me. Having them on Ignore, I don't have to spend bandwith that is otherwise more productively used.

    I spar with ol' bobbys a lot. Sometimes he takes it in good humor, sometimes he doesn't. He doesn't often spend much time informing himself on the details even at his best when he's C&Ping. I think you have to give more than that. It's only fair and polity demands one should try to respect well argued opinions. No such courtesy needs be extended to bad arguments especially when they are antagonistic. If one comes unprepared and then adds anger to conversation, one's going to get a lot of catcalls.

    Another way to lose the argument every time is to tell people who you think they are because somebody else you identify with them says something you don't like. People you tar with a broad brush are never going to agree with you and will go on to dismiss you and feed it all back to you in kind. A good example of this kind of outpouring, and the best bobbys imitation in this thread so far follows below.

    So why bother? You sure haven't encouraged me to discuss with you.

    So you guys all support language like "STFU" on this forum? No tangents or time outs, just simple decency which some here don't apparently understand or care about. Not the way I roll, enjoy.

    Well if STFU was ban-able, we'd both be sacked. Oh wait. Snowflake stuff, no?

    From post 120, one judges it's not Nick who needs the safe zone.

    The UK is civilized, they don't need one. Here however, when the country is run by at the least, a racist, we do.

    Gee, when I got busted I drew six months for "Rude."

    Bobbys, if you'd given us some lead-time I could have introduced you to my old cell-mate, "Fireplug," who kept asking me to be his date to the prom.

    Well, I suspect though bobbys denies it, he's gotten me banned for a total of 5 months. And yes, I'm confident he pushed the button both times.

    But it is hard to cover that tar taste even if they have been slow cooked over hot roofs.

    A glass of Western Isles peaty malt whisky along with the meat disguises the taste nicely.
