Ah, my mistake. OK, so now I'm a bit confused as to what the heck this whole argument is about. It seems rather insignificant and petty. But whatever.

A daring statement considering that you piss people off at least as much as Dude does. I've had my problems with him and you, but I appreciate that this forum allows for such feistiness. Sticks and stones... after all.

The difference is his need to be insulting. My or your decision to be pissed off about something is irrelevant. This idea that "asshole" is part of a reasonable discussion is just over the top.

What was petty was for you to say that what I said about him was "totally a dodge" when you really had no idea what you were talking about, and it was him that was dodging (as well as calling people idiots and assholes).

For what it is worth Gorgo I don't approve of ad-homs as a way to further an argument. The staff has stopped using them in order to set an example…

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

As an argumentive tool, I agree. Argumentum ad hominem is inane.

But I'm not using an ad-hom argument, I'm just namecalling.

Gorgo is in this thread deliberately hijacking it from my simple observation that there seem to be alot of anti-gay gay people out there. Because he is pissed off at me.

To which I can only say.... whatever.

Not pissed, just curious as to what I'm dealing with.

And now that we know what you are, we can deal with you from that perspective.

You're going to have to narrow that down some before I'll be able to answer it.

We allow "people like Dude here" for the same reason we allow people like you here, Gorgo. You (both) make significant contributions of valuable insights related to our mission in diverse subjects.

I understand that you're angry, Gorgo. I think that everyone who's read this far understands that you're angry. Continuing to tell us that you're angry is okay if that's what you really want to do, but it won't bring anything closer to a resolution.

Again, you're fucking with me. I was just stating a fact. You asked me the meaning of the word 'criminal.' I took a lot of time trying to get you to explain your problem, but you refused to answer. Much like Dude, you seem to only be interested in playing games. I mean, we've established that with him, you, I'm still wondering about.

No, Gorgo, I'm not.

"Just?" No, the particular fact you chose to state shows that you've been holding a grudge for quite some time.
quote:

I did explain it to you: I wasn't asking you to look up a definition, I was asking you how you were using that word within the context of what you'd been saying, because your statement that 'criminal' doesn't necessarily refer to someone who has committed a crime (paraphrased) was potentially confusing, and perhaps part of the reason you (and others) were getting so angry in that thread. And you're obviously still angry about it, since you picked "looking up a word" as an example of the significant contributions I said you'd made.

Calm down! Shit. Well, at least you have the good sense not to start getting hysterical and scream ASSHOLE! and IDIOT' when you get to things you don't understand.

Ah, you're just lashing out now, trying to make me (and others) as angry as you are.

Good then. You were asking me to explain the word 'criminal' to me. When I asked you to explain, you showed instances in which I used other words, and then asked me to explain my use of the word 'criminal' in those sentences. Sentences which did not contain the word 'criminal.' When I asked you to clarify, you refused, and I was the asshole for asking you to clarify.
