What I posted as private email ended on the main boards. I'm sorry. It will not happen again.
OK, how much did you offer her for what and when? JUST KIDDING, unless I am right and then I need to hear all.
I thought # 121 was the funniest as you sent it to yourself as a comment on your own post! Sorry..
ALWAYS, assume the microphone is on!!!!!!
LOL. Ouch. Not looking too good for the Texas n00b.
This is what you want to say but can't without editing.
But wait!! What did you want to say?
Your posts for tonight are disappearing faster than Waygu Beef from Michelle’s dinner plate.
You should thank the Mods for saving you from yourself. Why they bother is a mystery to me.
I think it’s the old adage about fools and children.
Don't feel bad. I was bitching about a coworker in a text message and accidentallly sent it TO him. Taught me the lesson that I should say things to people's faces instead of behind their backs.
I looked at that about 6 times and thought. Did I do that? but obviously I did. I sincerely apologize,not for the sentiment but the language.
WHO has not made that mistake? Instead of posting a vanity about it, if you must apologize do so on that same thread. The way to have your post removed is to hit the abuse button at the bottom of the offending post and ask the mods to remove it.
Common courtesy and appropriate language have nothing to do with “political correctness”.
I just read your posts in the email in post 6. It is how the liberals (and some conservatives) talk on a site I frequent. What makes me stand out is that I don’t talk that way there. I cut them slack because they are mostly young.
I suspect that if you continue to use that kind of attitude here you will be banned. It’s not about PC. Rather, it is about decorum. You dress nicely at some restaurants and more casual at others. When it comes to language, this place is more civilized than most. Even more so regarding attitude.
FWIW, I understand where you are coming from. Looking at the world in which I currently live, if I were not a Christian, I’d be dangerous. But I am so I’m not. One thing that really helped me keep my sanity was moving from Seattle to rural Kentucky. Dead serious.
—I was bitching about a coworker in a text message and accidentallly sent it TO him.—
That happened to me once (outlook IM). Except I was the one the message was sent to. There were a couple of guys “double teaming” me in the office. It was pretty comical actually, to hear his excuse. I just smiled and winked at him.
Us old guys are hard to shake up, especially by young guys, when your record speaks for itself.
I sincerely apologize,not for the sentiment but the language.
The sentiment is usually fine, but you may find that if that that sort of language is the only way to communicate the sentiment, then maybe it isn’t fine.
I have a simple motto: If my post is ad-hominem, don’t send it. I’m not 100% effective obeying it, but better than if it was not my motto.
My biggest weakness is accusing female posters of not being logical thinkers. I now just avoid those kinds of threads (usually animal rights related).
—how much did you offer her —
Who is “her”?
Pay the $50 fine and be done with it.
Oops! Oh, well. To err is human, but to really screw up, you need a computer.
It’s absolutely amazing you didn’t get zotted. This is a rare achievement indeed considering your behavior. Consider yourself blessed.
