also it seems there is a report/complaint function called "Alert" which i have gladly used due to you bringing up a moral issue and encouraging the debate that followed in a general chat thread, going as far as negatively addressing me

Whether the staff will actually care or not is beyond my knowledge but i did what i felt was necessary

Go to the debate forum, i think you will find it better suits your tastes

"I think defanged would be best"

"I THINK"

let that sink in for a bit
Yep, 'I think' is a confirmation. I think that defanging snakes to own as pets is barbaric. That is also a confirmation about where I stand.


Furthermore, calling a decision i make, or have yet to make, as barbaric is ergo calling me myself barbaric unless specifically stated otherwise to clear confusion for readers.
You shared your thoughts on a specific act in a discussion forum, and I shared mine, so what?


You're automatic assumption that i kill every spider i encounter is woefully misplaced.
Nope, don't invent things, I've only said 'if' here, you assume that incorrectly.

The spider that i killed had caught me by surprise and i was startled. In the heat of the moment i crushed it.

However the other day i saved a spiders life, even took a philosophical outlook on its struggle as watching it caught me contemplating life itself
Excellent



Quite frankly i have you entrapped in your own game

A bold claim on my part accusing you of attempting a ploy, however i would rather be wary of a ploy and be wrong then let you get away with said ploy.

You have yourself trapped in a box, anything short of factual tangible truth visible for readers to see for themselves will invalidate anything you have to say.
I'm sorry, no games here, and the rest is just more invention on your part, no ploys, no boxes, just honest discussion.
You appear to be deflecting with lots of words but not much substance.


Your opinions do not matter at this point in time however you may redeem yourself
Redeem myself from what? Posting on a forum that I think killing things needlessly is not cool, and that defanging snakes is certainly not cool, barbaric in fact.


I believe you are intelligent enough to understand this, as you are clearly intelligent enough not to resort to childish tactics which will automatically invalidate anything you have said or will say.

On the same note, i too must be wary of what i say fore i may also trap myself in the box.
Again, lots of words but little substance aside from lame attempts at deflecting.


I invented nothing, i have not claimed you have said anything that you have not
Yes you have, here, I'll quote you:


But to accuse me of being innately cruel is a transgression I do not easily forgive.

When I actually said this:


Wow, I'm struggling to think of something more cruel to do to an animal so you can satisfy your selfish desire to own a pet.




Anyone who can read will see that unless you otherwise attempt to alter your statements.
Nope, people will see that you do not respond to my actual words and chose to dramatise them as an attack or whatever.


Now, i am at work, and i will respond when time permits.

You don't like me thats fine
I never asked you to like me
I expressed no interest in friendship with you
I didnt start this thread for a debate, you decided to make it a moral issue, that i have no interest in partaking in.
See, that is where you are unlucky. This is a discussion forum and I am free to respond to anything you post here so long as I remain within terms and conditions.


As i said, i do what i want
Of course you do, that has never been in doubt, you have no need to repeat yourself.


You dont like it, dont respond, im sure both of us have better things to do particularly since im at work, myself.
I'll respond to whatever interests me on ATS. If you don't like my responses then again, unlucky, the only folk who have power over my responses here are the owners, admins, and mods.
I shall continue to respond wherever I feel I wish to.


As far as i know, im aware of no 'ignore' function on this site, which i would suggest you apply to me, so we do not have to have a ridiculous waste of time like this again.
Oh you are free to ignore me as you wish, but if I see you post something like "I think defanged would be best for both of us" while discussing a snake as a possible pet, I will respond and share my opinion.
Again, unlucky if you don't like that, this is a free discussion forum and I stick to the T's & C's because I like reasoned discussion.

Oh for goodness sake, if we were having a general chat in the pub about pets and you told me you thought defanging a snake was the best way forward for you I would say exactly the same.
A conversation is a fluid thing, there is no rule that members cannot share their opinion about a comment raised in conversation.
That is simply a human trait.


Whether the staff will actually care or not is beyond my knowledge but i did what i felt was necessary
Then one of us will learn a lesson about this interaction and how mods regard it.
Learning about any controlled environment is always useful, online or real world.

There is no 'debate' forum, there is only ATS and various subject orientated forums.

*Edit*
Just seen the the closure warning, I'll move along

*Edit*
Just been reminded that there is a 'debate' forum after all, never noticed it before so thanks for the shout.
Not very busy though from first glance, I shall have a look through, but it seems to be pretty dead, and not at all in the style of natural discussion as enjoyed in this thread and elsewhere on ATS.

I'm glad you thought it was as funny as I did. Is your Marine friend the type of guy that goes after them with a flame thrower?
