Right then Dakara...

I'll bet my entire collection of 12th century marble and gold chess sets that that's Rena Sofer, capped from an ep of season 6 of 24.

I guess my file name wasn't helpful enough.

Somehow I knew this would garner attention this morning. Good choice of sig, I guess.

Boy, those shipping charges are going to be expensive.

She played a prostitue in Old Town that betrayed the girls to the mob. I believe her name is Alexis Bledel.

I assure you sek, nothing you've said in this thread, or any has gotten my panties in a wad.

I use starch when I wear panties.
Did you miss the green smiley face with the huge grin and/or the purposeful redneck misspelling of the sentence preceding it?
Obviously I noticed it. That was what the passive/agressive comment was about.
I know better than to start a futile argument with you, I just threw out some bait....and, of course, you snapped it right up
See, more passive aggressivenessness.

And I've told the forum for years that if anyone posts in reply to a post of mine, or posts a post about me, that I will indeed feel obligated to respond. So if you do any above it's a pretty good indication I will respond. Why? Because I've been saying as much for years.

Rena Sofer Photos
Yes, the basic features are there, blue eyes, dark hair, thin eyebrows. Not sure she'd look young enough though.

I also had no idea who you referring to until now. I know her from Ed, I believe.

I can see the similarity there. Though her eyes are a bit more almond shaped than the girl in the sig. Not by much though.

To be fair, the chick in your sig looks mid-30s to me.
Watch season 6 of 24 and you'll see exactly what I mean (Jack's sister in law).

I would tell KeriVit that maybe he needs to take his own advice.

It has nothing to do with you, yet you've just added to it making it even more obnoxious that it already was. Good job.

Baiting?

I am warned! I sure am. Then sek will tell you to get your panties out of a knot, and the cycle will be complete!

That's completely fair. A 200x50 sig isn't an exact science. That one sig you had a long time back looked like Jamie Gertz to me (Which is way more random).

Absolutely. She's baby-faced. Though they certainly add to it with how they style her hair and such.

I think there is a forum bug. I calculated that that image is actually displayed at 93.74% of original size.

Yes. That's why I didn't figure it was her. The sig looks mid-30s, Alexis doesn't. Hence Rena Sofer guess.

These sorts of discussions are always so circular. Somebody like Kevin will accuse you of doing x, y, and z, and when you say something he calls you a hypocrite. In the meantime, he is doing the stuff he is scolding you for doing (sometimes in the very post in question).

The best way to avoid these sort of loops is to STFU and move on, but he insists on dragging things on and on and on and on and on...

Watch this, his response will be about how I'm wrong, a hypocrite, I should practice what I preach, I'm being passive aggressive, projecting, whatever other bullshit he is stuck on that day. I wish we could get through to him that most people don't care about who is "right" or "wrong" with these silly lines of conversations, but just want him to STFU and walk away from it.

I'd love to be ignored by him, but I've tried in vain. The latest chapter in this whole thing is him going on about MacNN bullies. He calls this easy going? I'd hate to see hard going.

#1 no. #2 being a bully isn't just being condescending.

You can be the latter and not be a bully. Me and Doofy had a conversation about this on AIM about a 1/2 hour ago. And he pretty much agreed with my about my concept as to what a bully was.

Why is it when people have run out of valid attacks, they revert to OMG YOU POSTED LOTS OF WORDS!!1

Lighten up sek.

That is the only part of your post you got right.



BTW besson when you reply with the same type of answers, you are going to know my responses. So when you "predict" what I am going to say, it's not that impressive since you basically say the same thing in each post. Then you blame me for doing the same thing.

There is where the circle comes in.

<--- still no panties in a knot.

He didn't use a smiley with his sarcastic dig at me so he saw fit to write me a lovely novel.

Isn't that what he chastised you about for like 3 pages once?

This not only doesn't make sense. But it has nothing to do with my thought processes.

And if I used sarcasm without being obvious, and you didn't catch it, then yes, it was my fault, and I fully apologize.

(BTW my dig with dakar about that wasn't so much him doing that, but him belittling others for not getting it when he admitted he was purposely being vague.)

Honestly, I don't keep track of it. He probably has a laundry list of grievances with me, and many of them are couched in whatever adjectives and psychoanalyses he is enjoying at the time, so as to render the majority of them worthless.

If ones rant is so just, they don't have to revert to exaggeration.

I only had one rant about you Dakar. Just one. And it was a valid one. And ever since I made that rant, you've been nothing but silly to me.
and many of them are couched in whatever adjectives and psychoanalyses he is enjoying at the time, so as to render the majority of them worthless.
No, I use words that fit the actions. If you do said actions a lot, your going to hear said words used to describe said actions a lot.

That's just common sense.

Well when you say "be warned" you are warning person ahead of time about a further action that will soon or has already taken place no?

My response was "go ahead" meaning go on with whatever it is I should "be warned" about.

The sad part about this all is. for the whiners that are complaining about me. You have an out. You have the ability to get me to stop responding to your posts. Yet you choose not to do it. Why? No clue. Well thats not true. I have an inkling.
