that has managed to not get banned from the forum; is usually entertaining and, though he may say things that initially may seem bigoted, misogynistic, what ever, unless I am seriously mistaken it is just part of poking fun at anything or anyone. No one is immune. Sacred cows make the best hamburger.
FWIW, I do
get my bottom smacked by the Mods now and again
......not so much in recent years, but a bit of a learning
curve along the way - for everyone
............but humour often directed at self as much as anyone else. I also try and keep the quips etc off the more factual threads. And I do try and help folks as well, even if sometimes little more than offering encouragement or teasing out additional info for an OP / other folks to chew over......and I do tend to avoid those that clearly don't want to "play" - when I remember who they are!
Having said that, have never been afraid to say the unsayable, and I am aware that does not always go down well with some (internet and real life
) - sometimes calling a spade a spade is
useful. and sometimes important - and occassionally it needs to be called robustly, although I do try to include a tad of humour to sugarcoat the message.
But I will concede that my humour does not always hit the target in the manner intended
and accept that not appreciated by everyone - spending time on more "robust" forums
means that sometimes the personna swap to CF (and being nice
) is not always seamless (see earlier link
), plus of course with an international audience not possible to please everyone - so sometimes I don't bother trying to do that
If anyone does get "offended" by any of my comments, have a chat to the Mods (PM or via the Red Triangle) - or even send me a PM, I don't take things on the internet
personally - and this being CF (Play nice) I won't offer to cut off your head and defecate down your neck (see earlier link
) over minor issues. or as a welcome
Anyway, that's my final $5 and 27 cents on this thread
