I took it as being sarcastic too...no worries here

I thought that he was serious, but I'm not stupid, even if is just sarcarsm is still offensive. you and seven have to be more careful before you say that...

You haven´t seen much of the world then. I imagined it was sarcastic, that´s why I asked before of making se7en´s brain to a piece of meat for my pasta asciutta.

Rest assured, there are people on this planet who think exactly what Se7en said.

Good grief. Talk about a major misunderstanding...

Muggsy, my friend. Be careful when I say what, precisely? For starters, I never said you were stupid. At all.

In my opinion, the comments that Se7en made were obviously not serious. I was saying that I would be disgusted if someone did make those comments and mean it, as I find that way of thinking to be moronic beyond belief.

I thought what I wrote was clear, but it would seem not - maybe I worded it wrongly. That comment was not aimed at you and I was surprised that you interpreted it that way. I'm not apologising for something that I did not say it the first place. I do want to say, though, that I certainly didn't mean to upset you.

Actually, I've moved around a lot, lived in several diferent countries and have visited close relatives on various continents many times. (As have millions of other people, of course.) I'm not trying to say that this makes me any great authority on human nature, but I have seen plenty of the world, thanks very much.

I understand why you say that - the original comment probably came across as naive. In future I shall stick to my usual phrase: the stupidity of some people never ceases to amaze me.

(NO, I'm not calling you stupid, either!!)

Obviously he has to be more careful because some people just don't have any concept of sarcasm...*ahem Muggsy cough*

I wonder how much sarcasm you could buy with $2 a day?

Or perhaps, a sarcasm condom........
