Can you give us a link dsmithy?

An apology within the same post is kind of hollow.


Maybe depends whether you wished to offend all or make a point to a few, my reason was the latter.

Delete away, it's redundant now.

I like it when people 'cleverly and smartly' abuse one another. But simple-minded abuse deserves deletion and has no place in the art of writing and foruming.

Stephen Fry pointed out that swear words may well be an evolutionary positive step. Telling somebody to FO is a lot better than punching them in the face and a discharge of frustrtion is better than holding it in.

Personally I know DSmithy to be a reasonable if sometimes arrogant bloke. If he used the C word on somebody I wouldn't have to see the example to feel confident it was an appropriate response.

Swearing is a weapon in itself.
Just like Muad'dib of the Frank Herbert Dune series showed - words and tone of voice, etc can have a powerful effect if used properly.

I don't swear at work. I'm quiet, well spoken (I am Wink) and polite with considerations allround.
...but I can swear and its like a bite more than a bark upon the mind of the person of whom has pushed me too far. Ahh yes - 'Mental' abuse can render someone - incapacitated.

Keep a good line and length ...then bowl in the yorker at their toes - either way its an LBW or a Wicket, 75% of the time.

Now **** off you **** !!! Angry

All some posters can do is throw personal abuse and resort to petty insults to try and drag the debate into the gutter where they have no problem wallowing in the muck.....I will not respond to personal attacks in future and hope others will not respond to these individuals and feed their pathetic ego's.....There is a reason these people resort to abuse and are mainly from the right side of politics.....Do not feed the trolls!!!

You say something po-faced and prissy and then support it by a quote about silence. What a smacking liberty, as Catherine Tate's Nan likes to say.

With posters like you popping up with this sort of idiocy, there isn't nearly enough abuse, I say.

You can't dictate what people think or say. It's better to let the crazies talk than to make them furtive.

Annie, dear, have you administered those probes yet? The patient is still in a profoundly delusional state. There is no change whatsoever.

Note the textbook example of projection: "crazies".  The patient has absolutely no idea of his own incurable psychosis.

This is, of course, typical in the pathalogical cases. We'll need to have a consult on this one, I fear. Did you say we have a specialist on hand?

Best to keep this one in-house, dear. We don't want the Department involved, now do we.
