And furthermore. I believe it is against board policy or standards or whatever for calling another poster a "Jackass". Even if you think he is, it violates board rules. and I saw nothing from anyone admonishing Jeff for calling me that.
I didn't call you a jackASS, I answered if you deserved to be called one (based on how that came across). Also, I think Tim was half joking with you, at least. And honestly, I don't know what the "policy" of Toby and Sammy are, but it's not so strict as to have people being admonished all the time.
I never said you did. It just seems odd that I get hell in a handbasket for an offhand "who cares?' and when I get called a jackass, not a word is said.
I do realize that it's hard to convey humor. Heck, a simple "It's the Lions dude, no one cares! "would have probably gone over ok.
I didn't phrase my thing well...I will admit that.
I just know that I've been in Tim's situation with you quite often lately. He's in the Lion thread, and goes "OK, Not that it matter, but I'm a bit of a jersey nerd so I kinda care".. and you go "who knows... and further.. who cares?". The natural reaction of someone in that situation is that you're belittling them and to wonder what they said that was so stupid as to warrant getting called out by you. If you don't care, why comment that most people also shouldnt care?
It wasn't my intention to belittle anyone. My comments started with a couple of possibilities and then I tried to be funny (because quite frankly Detroit Lion jersey numbers are not a topic most people would care about). Maybe I should stop trying to be funny here.
As I've said before, if you were normally this kind of poster, your posts were normally derisive, or void of intelligence and courteousy, this wouldn't be so jarring. But really, I've said more than enough, and how you take it is up to you. I promise I'm not trying to bust your balls on it, and it really was my last attempt.
so what you're saying is if I were normally a jackass, you wouldn't have said anything to me? Not sure how to take this. Insulted or flattered.
