    Perhaps if you read a little more closely you might understand what is being communicated. Here, I'll try it again... just for you. Who started it is irrelevant to whether either comment was offensive. In this thread, prior to the discussion that the Edison kids had said ANYTHING to the Alamo kids, some posters denied that the original chanting from the Alamo kids was offensive. There. I hope that was clear enough for you.
    You mean to say that we both find both phrases offensive? Because just for snigs and gigs, is there somewhere in the thread that you have expressed your offense at the "other" chant? Obviously that is clear enough for me, though I bet you can explain that away like fairy dust.

    Sure I did, though I also consistently said it is irrelevant both to what the Alamo kids did and what is the focus of this thread. So, is THAT clear enough for you, or do you need more fairy dust?

    Well then SURE! Simply *link* said comment and I will gladly crown you! Where again is this supposedly irrelevant point that seems to be, well, quite relevant. It really is that simple and that clear.

    And let us not lose sight of the fact that this is an *argument* based upon the actions of a handful of tweens for 5 seconds. Big doings here, all those nebulous posters are all worked up now!

    No, the point is quite irrelevant as I have said repeatedly. But here you go:

    And let us not lose sight of the fact that your point of "a handful of tweens for 5 seconds" is irrelevant to whether it was offensive or not... but I guess those nebulous posters just don't seem to understand this concept. AND I'm certainly not saying it was a big deal... that's YOUR diversion.

    Consider yourself crowned! I can't imagine how I missed that condemnation amidst all the rest of yours, aimed as they are at *nebulous* posters. Er, J-mac. But sure, pointing out all this effort and straw stuffing is focused upon the actions of the same handful of tweens the whole topic is predicated on is a diversion! Sure. Why not.

    I certainly hope I didn't hurt you feelings TOO much, proving you wrong and all. The diversions, ignoring of context, and focusing on irrelevancy. I am SO glad that you have now seen the light. Perhaps, from now on, you won't be so nebulous.

    I'm not too sure how you proved me wrong, but hey you gotta go with what brought you. I will defend your right to be "offended" by the actions of a handful of tweens for 5 seconds and anything else you want to be offended by. Only I will make fun of you for that as well as the idiotic insistence that bringing up the entire premise of your "offense" is supposed to be diversionary. I'm charitable like that.

    I don't need you to defend any rights, since I've already explained repeatedly that there is no right to not be offended. I understand why you would continue to ignore that, though. Doesn't fit in your agenda, and I'm SURE you wouldn't want to veer away from that.

    Only I will make fun of you for that as well as the idiotic insistence that bringing up the entire premise of your "offense" is supposed to be diversionary. I'm charitable like that.
    I'm charitable too. I'll continue to make fun of you for your diversions and focusing on irrelevancy JUST so you can stay with your black and white thinking. I'll also continue to make fun of you for being unable to recognize your own limitations on this matter. But that's OK. I am hopeful that you can be educated on such matters.

    By all means please do make fun of me and my b/w thinking and any other adjectives you can come up with. My limitations, education and any other ad homs ya got, that is after all the hallmark of all great master debaters. How else are we to know you have not anything even marginally intelligent left to say at this point? You go "Captain Courtesy"!

    Can't even take responsibility to do your own books. Figures.

    Poor Gie. I suppose it might be a good idea next time to not start using the ad homs. Then you won't have to get so upset when they get thrown back at you. Here's a pro-tip: If you don't like it, don't do it yourself. You might fare a little better, next time. Of course, it WOULD mean you would have to take some responsibility for things.
