FE, my email address means something completely different from what you have assumed. Please refrain from discussing such details on a public forum.
As for offensive remarks. The only one I can think of is my thread concerning the recent death of a former IRA member. What IS offensive is the fact he committed crimes for a political cause, which resulted in the needless deaths of innocent citizens.
You are right about the contributions on this thread in some ways. Some have mentioned you, but for good reason. I have not been, as you quote, "taking pot shots", at you. Instead, merely suggesting what could improve the forum. Another poster did explain, but you appear to be using me as a scapegoat.
The pedantry which you sometimes clearly exhibit is what puts some people off posting. Nobody is perfect, but it is rude for soembody with an element of authority to correct others in public, especially given the nature of the conversations.
You are clearly upset about how often I post to this forum. Don't be.
BlockquoteThe internet is God's gift to those who like hurling abuse at complete strangers...
Hurling abuse? That is a pretty strong accusation to make. I have not called you anything offensive or used profanities. I have not threatened you in any way, but have told the truth.
The person who started this thread asked for suggestions - I made one. I haven't seen yours yet.
It was about the way treat other posters on here, which is related. My advice to you was effectively 'ditto'ing your own advice to a fellow poster. On a more technical note, and that was more effective spam prevention. That I happen to have posted as a response on another thread whose o/p was treated as such. You would have seen it prior to deleting it.
You seem happy to sit back and fun taking potshots at me. I'm well used to that after 19 years in this job, but it's not exactly a positive contribution on your part, is it?
'You seem happy to sit back and fun ... '. Didn't you mean to say 'You seem happy to sit back and HAVE fun ...'?
In response to your comment, I suggest you take it as you want. Correction capitalised for your reference only. I take it you are now implying I must make contributions of a certain nature. That I will decide, thank you!
You would be right in thinking I was nit picking or being pedantic. The purpose is to put you in the position of some of those who contribute. They have not done so only to be patronised by you because of the odd minor slip or two.
Sometimes the truth hurts.
