You know what, english is not my first language, and so, I still have some difficulties with that. So, please do bear with any grammatical errors that you might come by.

There's nothing wrong with a shorter post, especially if you have the first opening statement. Sometimes it's a good idea to just present a general overview of the subject, then allow your opponent to present their opinion. That way you can save the complicated arguments until you have a better idea of what kind of approach your opponent is going to take. Then you can be more exact when making your case, in later replies.

Schro Dog meant analyze the posts (and I am sure there was a good natured jab in there as well...
)


Not exactly.

You might want to mention that in your closing, just so the judges know too.

You do a great job with the English so they might not even realize.

And don't worry, I don't attack grammar or spelling in a debate – that's pretty classless I think. I'll just tear apart your arguments logically

I'm not necessarily sure if that is an improvement over the old man perception...

I was looking at some motivational images in photobucket, and found this. I think it would be useful for FCP.

I had an avatar a few years back that was an old man 'catching' lightning bolts in jars.

When I posted a picture in the member pic thread, Ashley posted her incredulity.

In no way should my comment be interpreted as a negative perception on the veritable and honourable ADB or CA_Orot.

Please forgive any unfortunate implications.

haha I remember that. Reminded me of some television scientist like Mr. Wizard. I really thought it was you in that avatar.


ADB- no hard feelings. It's an avatar he used to have with a really old man. Then in the photo thread on BTS I was surprised to see he was actually a young man of my age. lol

I'll consider forgiveness. Only because a guy who catches lightning in a jar sounds O.K.

But I'll pout for a while about it.

Yes but ...

If I am not mistaken, what you're saying here is that being perceived as carrot or ADB is akin to being mistaken for an old man.

So carrot/ADB = Old Man

That is what you were saying, right?

I don't look like an old man


I'll also forgive you Memory - but you're on probation.

You certainly aren't helping...:shk:
 


Here is the original image that I had kinglizard turn into an avatar (which I wore for over a year and a half...)



It was a good avatar...
 

Carrot...My sincerest apologies; don't listen to Schro Dog!!
