This has turned into an interesting thread!

Not what I expected. All good in any case.

It serves a good point, and the point of the OP.

Thank you all for replying.

I find this infinitely amusing...and surprising actually.



Even tone can come off as condescending. Is yours?

Yes, I spelled that wrong..."ornery"...(admitted) ...(bad on me...I hate misspelling things).

Otherwise...your opinion is welcome. Debate on!

My skin is indeed, quite thick.

Always perhaps a bit of sarcasm, yes.

Typical ignorant post from a hillbilly redneck hick who thinks he knows everything but can't see the nose on his face.
You should go get a proper education

I know why you would have to buy people a meal, I have read your cooking stories, better buy it for them, nobody could stomach your food

Thick skin, more than just thick skin related to you...what were we arguing about?

Anyway

I get the feeling that people are a little deeper and hold a little more substance to themselves than what we read of them on an Internet forum. Sometimes we only see the one dimensional


WOW!!

Bitter much???

LOL!!!

ETA...That's classic. EPIC even!! I'm stunned!! That you could come out of the blue with such a statement, demonstrates immaturity beyond description!! THANKS...for illustrating that!!


But the way you countered here..still looks like you hurl your share of insults and names.

Bitter. Immature.

I'm not criticizing you for using adjectives. But the point of your thread man...seems like you already forgot.




What insult did he give?

"That you could come out of the blue with such a statement, demonstrates immaturity beyond description!"

Is than an insult or an opinion? Honestly asking.


Oh. So I can say you're a bitter immature jerk, but that's just an opinion, not an insult?

Dayum!

Watch out mods, I got lots of opinions to start expressing around here


Are you asking that about me?
I do not know the answer to your question, but I'm not a mod. I would suggest the initial comment was unwarranted (joke or not), and the follow up by me was an attempt to clarify the positions.


I'm just playing Devil's advocate. The rhetoric was not aimed at you specifically.

Candidly, I could get a heck of a lot more sarcastic than I am being here, but honestly I'm being pretty straight up tonight.

You may think otherwise, and that's okay, but that's your opinion.

I'm 'ornery' every night.

But the point I'm making here is this:

They're just words. Where's the line between opinion and name-calling? Or a description that makes someone feel insulted?

If someone told me I lived a sheltered life, or that I'm bitter and immature, I'd consider it an insult. You don't know what that means to the person you're calling that thing.

Opinions can be insulting, and expressed in insulting ways.

Opinions are also part of debates.




Insults are only insulting if you allow them to be. That is truth.

If you cannot laugh at yourself, then you have no right to laugh at another. That is also truth.

As far as the whole Speedo and WD-40 thing... is there a time limit to this swim, and can anyone apply? I am not asking for me... my stepson needs some motivation. He is a skinny white kid, and can swim insanely fast when chased by sharks.

I'm the greatest masterdebater the planet has ever seen, and there is no debate.

Even when I lose, I win. And when I win, I WIN.

If you disagree, you're just a masterhaterbater.

I don't debate to discus, I debate to level up.

I have crocodile skin aswell.. so if you try to hurt my feelings, I'm telling my mom.

Don't mess with me.

What I think, and felt compelled to share was in regard to this from your OP:



Frankly, I've got a pretty thick skin, and i really don't care so much about the insults (in fact, many times they're pretty comical). However, it's pretty unfortunate when the "amateurs" show up and just start talking "smack' and nonsense.


Then someone paints what (to me) seemed like a perfectly satirical example given your posting history was responded to by what (to me) seemed like offense.

Yes, indeed my opinion. Funny nonetheless.

Tell me, honestly, you don't see a bunch of amateur, uninformed, people respond "emotionally" to many of the volatile political posts here!

Seriously, tell me you don't.

You're still playing checkers, my friend. Let me know when you reach this 4D chess level.

You don't even realize it yet, but you've already lost.

It's all good.
I found it funny that FCD noted in his first reply that Inwas illustrating the exact poor standards we sometimes see

Irrespective FCD, if you are ever down my way, I will not cook you a feed, I will take you and yours out for a feed, far better than me cooking
Less you like sausages and eggs or sausages

Wish I had your culinary skills

I do, that is, on the other side. Fewer and far between on BTS especially in the rant forum.

This could simply be my perception same with the satirical post aimed at you. Hard for me to know.
