That's a joke, idiots.

That is why Doofy shouldn't have used capital letters on "The Internet" so he could always say that he was just talking about the internet.

Actually, I was mocking people who post that in Feedback whenever a thread is locked. But since you wereone of those people, I'm not surprised you had to be patronizing about it.

Remember the discussion we have about you making "jokes" and then belittling people that didn't get them? That was what my comment was about.

And you did it in ONE POST!

But thats ok Dakar if it makes you feel better about yourself go ahead. Belittle away.

BTW you exaggerated a bit in your comment. You'd not have to revert to such dishonesty if your rant was valid.

Get over yourself, and get a sense of humor. I noticed one of the people I 'belittled' thought it was funny.

Dakar,

Don't worry, I found your post to be informative and witty.

P.S. this post is not belittling you.

You usually don't, so that's worrisome.

But I assume you're just chipping in just to irritate Kevin.

Just kidding again, I'm not belittling anybody!

You mocking people is a joke? Surely not. And saying "wrong forum" isn't mocking anyone.
Saying "wrong forum ya moron, you should know better" is.

No, I had that conversation about you. To you. You either. 1. Weren't paying attention. or 2. Have a bad memory. Would you like me to paste said links to you? Considering that what was my MAIN gripe about you, that I repeated over and over again It amazes me that you still don't know.
Get over yourself
Nothing I said warranted that comment.
and get a sense of humor.
I have a sense of humor. One that doesn't require belittling others.
Just because people don't find your attacks "funny" doesn't mean they need a sense of humor.

I assure you, I'm a regular class clown.

Yeah besson would never do that. So thats a good assumption.

Wait, not it's not. Sense besson on many occasion made premeditated plans in attempt to "irritate" me.
BTW if any of you fanyboys think this "irritates" me you aren't getting it.

I know standing up to us yourselves in the instance that you felt we were belittling or mocking you is an intimidating thought... Thank goodness for Kevin, protector of these boards!

I can't agree or disagree with you there since there are so many varied definitions people use for "sap"

As far as have I ever done such a thing? I've never denied that. I said it didn't require that.

Anyone that has ever sent me a private message informing me that something I have said to them hurt their feelings, within reason, have received replies with personal apologies from me. That isn't my intentions.

Jokes, Sarcasm, and such antics are tricky to perform in a text based situation. And even more so when you attempt to purposely be subtle.

I am just asking Dakar to not be surprised when others don't understand he is "joking" when he purposely makes these vague jokes. That if someone doesn't get it, to apologize and tell them you were being vague for a reason, blah blah.

Surely don't belittle them as if it were obvious. And we've had this discussion many times.

But for some reason he keeps forgetting about said conversations.

Making light of, and talking crap to buddies it a time old tradition. But it's always done lightheartidly and in jest.

On the internet however, it's hard to get that across so you must be a bit more obvious than normal (emoticons are great for this) Esp to people who don't know you.

Even the Netiquette or whatever it's called makes mention of this. Using sarcasm is a bit no no where internet manners is concerned. Certainly making fun of those that don't "get it" is even worse.

So I think we are talking about two different things.

Not to mention condescending hatefulness. And thanks. Thats just one of the many thinks I have gotten in the forum, and in pvt for standing up to the NN Gang®.
I know standing up to us yourselves in the instance that you felt we were belittling or mocking you is an intimidating thought... Thank goodness for Kevin, protector of these boards!
You pretentious condescending bit you just pulled isn't helping people see you any differently besson.

The

"Lets attack him and be pretentiously condescending to make him look like he has the problem and not us'

bit never worked before. I don't know why you pulled it out again.

You've been nothing but nasty to me since you started regularly posting here besson.

Even after many were requesting me to report you for it, I did not. It wasn't until you started doing it to others did I say anything. You point above is irrelevant, and just another petty attack.

Again, my offer to you still stands. You stop belittling people, and I will leave you alone.

Same offer stands with Dakar now as well.

You want me to "Leave you alone" all you have to do is quit belittling other people in the forum. Thats it.

Easy.As.Pie.
