Have you been contacted by Triggs' Mob, Effendi?


Not that I know of, but that does not mean they haven't been contacted by Brian.

Surely you would expect to have been contacted by 'Triggs' if Mr Ross had made a complaint about content here.  If not, it is quite possible he made the complaint and 'Triggs' has decided it does not meet some threshold to bother contacting anyone.  I imagine that if there was anything serious, you, as Owner/Admin here, would have heard by now.

Because I just know. Brian Ross likes to provoke, and he's getting the response he wants. Come on, seriously, who would waste their time?

So would I Effendi, so why the drama aimed at a Member?  Perhaps this Thread needs a better home in Relationships?

Wrong.

A threat is a warning that certain actions will be undertaken should the target of grievance not henceforth desist and refrain from continuing in the same vein.



Isn't that what he did? If not, please explain what he DID do.

What you did, Brian, was to make this statement to Yadda (who happens to be one of the least offensive members of this board) :

Quote:

"You may feel it is but do I?  Nope.   I am offended.   We shall have to see what the Human Rights Commission has to say on the topic.   Hopefully you will be held responsible for your comments and claims about Muslims.   They are disgusting comments.  They deserve for you to be punished under the law.

**

"Yadda, I don't care what you feel or believe.  You have offended me and I am raising a complaint under section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act.   You will be summonsed to appear before the Human Rights Commission.   You will have to defend your remarks after they have been examined".

I was caned solidly and often for 7 long years at boarding school for the most trivial of infractions of the rules, and so I'm not too happy to be witness to Yadda being treated in this way.

REPENT BRIAN, or suffer the consequences!

Brian - I know it's you. Game's up. Confess all, and throw yourself upon the mercy of the membership here.

We, all of us, are but frail human beans with our idiosyncrasies and foibles of character.

REPENT! and set your soul free from Eternal Damnation!

The clock is ticking and time is running out for you, Brian. CONFESS! Throw yourself upon the mercy of the People's Court here.

Are you implying that I am Brian Ross? That I am using two nicknames?

Brian has done this before, but he's not a Robinson Crusoe in this regard.


It is not a trivial matter to categorically state to a fellow member of a discussion board that you fully intend to report him to the relevant authorities.

Ok. So, if you believe that I'm Brian Ross, would be willing to accept an apology from me?

I have known Brian as a forum member for over 10 years, and so I think I'm in a better position to judge than you are.
