I disagree. It was a direct insult to people who liked your post, calling your post garbage was just the excuse.

You haven't been here long enough to realize that they are part and parcel of this place. Some of the most entertaining and creative expressions here have come from dueling insults.

I see your point and stand corrected.

To some of us calling someone a fucking idiot is just foolishness not bad behavior.

Translation: some of us here can't accept criticism of our positions and opinions.

That said, I have seen several things out of you, Haywood, that make me think "what the heck is wrong with that guy!?"

I'm not trying to be insulting, but you often read as slightly unhinged. I don't know if it's a mild form of trolling or if that's just how you think/talk, but good grief, man, it's appalling!

When you say "I forgive you", he's not embarrassed at insulting you; clearly, he felt you deserved the insults. Not everyone subscribes to the Happy Fantasy Land™ tradition of "let's all be nice to one another". I do, but then I'm a Southerner, and it's part of our culture to not whip out the insults until they are well past being earned.

I'm not asking or expecting anyone to be nice. I wasn't nice to you when I said your post was garbage and showed why it was garbage. However it was always your position I attacked and not you.

I have this new idea brewing in my head and it is this. Most people join internet forums to circle jerk and re-enforce their beliefs. I come here to fight and argue about beliefs. I understand why you guys don't like me. I don't join in your intellectual masturbation chain gang but instead try to spoil it with some actual fruitful discussion.

You are disliked because you're an asshole who makes many totally daft arguments.

I welcome it. You're the one who's not prepared for it.

He must be using "fruitful discussion" in some strange new sense I don't recognise.

... this is my signature!

I don't forgive you for being a passive-aggressive twat.
