Of course you don't respond to the part where he says that liberals are responsable for this too.

Of course, there are parts of the country where a retractable stadium roof is useful or even essential, so you may be mocking what you don't understand....

In a word? Ditto. It's called sarcasm. That thing you think you do. I should've used an eyeroll?

You're funny. When Colbert comes back after the writer's strike, I'm going to personally tell them they need to hire you. For real.

I'm so *stupid* to not understand what you meant in your head that you didn't explain well.

"You see that guy? HA! He acting just like my classmate Bob Borgan did back in 1988."
"Bob Borgan?"
"You see that guy? HA! He's so stupid he doesn't even know who Bob Borgan is!"

Effective. I stand corrected.

And there's my point. You'r last statement was meant in your post as playful or tongue in cheek or whatever and I responded the same but you took it as serious. In other words, just because you think you're having fun doesn't mean that someone else is taking it the same way as intended.

No, I'm mocking the fact that you're taking everything we all say here so seriously and as a personal attack.

Lighten up already. You're only making yourself look foolish in this thread by taking obvious lighthearted posts so personally.

ETA: The inside joke wasn't for your benefit, either.

This is true. Tone is very hard to decipher sometimes, especially if you're not a regular.

For example I would have never taken that line of yours as being playful.

You went off on this long post about how we mob up on people and attack any dissenting argument but we can't take it.

Then you say "But not, of course, when it's being used against you, then it's flaming.... right?" and we're suppose to know you're kidding?

Inconsistent at best.

Actually, he did. When he quoted my (slightly sarcastic) response.

He was using an example. He wasn't implying that there's a different rulebook.

I don't take my creativity in Paint that seriously that I needed you to delete it.

It's not looking likely to reliably turn either lighthearted or constructive anytime soon, so I'm inclined to agree.

...there are some posters who do try to add things of substance while being flip and emotional, but it does seem that the people whining the loudest are the ones who offer the least.

and i'm sorry for tossing people into such binary categories. i agree that there are some "bullies" on the left in here who do need to tone it down, especially when they see something that doesn't seem to have much thought put into it. and what i think we, on the Left, in here particularly, need to do, is to check ourselves. we are in the majority. if we are right, and i am sure we are, then we need to make our points by using facts, logic, and reason. and if someone comes back at you with snide comments, emotionalism, and a huge chip on the shoulder, just remember that you are in the majority, and try to turn the other cheek and maybe even help them out a bit so it's a fairer fight.
Great post.

Frankly, yes, though I do appreciate the acknowledgment and hope a few others who could stand to do the same.

That's exactly the excuse people who routinely tend to be rude always turn to--as if there were no other options available in responding to someone who's rude/'stupid'/hypocritical/'bad debater' etc. etc. It isn't a credible excuse, ever.




With apologies to the thread starter (and any other posters who were sincerely trying to keep it lighthearted, in the fullest sense of the term).
