I think you're deliberately trying to stir some ****. Why ? Weedie said nothing to deserve any derision and whatever he ingests is none of your concern.
What this thread has done, is demonstrated the point I made at the very beginning. I referred to a very small minority, but others saw fit to get all butthurt. It is good of you to come to weedies defence, but I'm sure he could have come up with a reply that would have sat me on my arse. And left me scratching my head. As for your drongo mate who posted below you, I have little time for keyboard warriors, so won't dignify his insult with a reply. He typifies the old boys club .
I think you might have the wrong end of the stick Geoff.
I think you assumed someone was having a shot at you and so you fired back. Which resulted in others firing back. Thing is, I didn't take the post you burred up about as being aimed at you at all and was something pretty tame.
Have a beer and read the thread again tomorrow. FWIW I have done something similar on more than one occasion so you aren't on your pat.
Most people have very short memories on these sort of forums if you make an honest overreaction so don't sweat it but think you are going to unnecessarily blow a foofer valve here. Save the foofer valve for something really worth getting narky about.
Storms, teacups, shrug it off and have a beer. My 2 bobs worth anyway.
Though I appreciate your efforts as peacemaker, I disagree with you. Firstly, if I misinterpreted weedies post, then that is an issue between him and myself. I don't really think he needs SJW's riding to his rescue, I'm sure he could set me straight. But that is not the main issue, this thread was started by some one who commented about a couple of members who no longer come here.
I raised an issue I had experienced, but did not infer that it was the reason for the others leaving. Instead of discussing the issue I raised, the whole thread turned into a circus. Look to be quite honest, I no longer care, and I'm sure comments of good riddance will greet my departure, but meh. I'm sure certain childish members can come up with insults that I won't be reading anyway. But they can sit around and giggle, and play with their emoticons.
It is fine to call each other idiots etc, that's what blokes do. But when people start using insults like poof ( homosexual ) and the mods say nothing, that just proves my point about the old boys club mentality. The mods won't do their job, for fear of offending long term members. Oh hang on, paul made a comment about too many emoticons. Anyways, that's my final comment on here. cheers.
