Look, my patience is seriously running thin with you. I realize you're on a personal vendetta to attempt to discredit anything I say and simply disagree with me for no reason, but in this case it's just FOOLISH.
When I told Ted how apartheid was spelled, and that it was gone for some time now, the point was OBVIOUS. OBVIOUS! HOW THE HELL COULD ANYONE POSSIBLY ATTEMPT TO INSULT SOMEONE WHO IS FROM SOUTH AFRICA BY SHOVING A LONG-STANDING OPPRESSIVE MOVEMENT AT THEM? He was being a JERK!
Look...I don't really care about Daniel or whatever he claims his methods are. But I DO care when I see that someone isn't talking to him, but insulting him, and with very pathetic and low-blow insults. Ted dedicates an entire message to belittling Daniel, call him things like "little boy" and then even ends by saying HIS OWN FATHER DOESN'T LIKE HIM!
Now with your twisted reasoning, I'm not really sure what YOU take that as, but to me it's a series of disgusting and offensive insults.
And then to add the apartheid thing?! He takes a shot at the man for being South African!!! Implies that it's obvious what kind of person Daniel is because the country he lives in had apartheid at one point! LoL!!!! NICE! Next time I get into an argument with a German, I will blame the entire Holocaust on the said person. What kind of idiotic, bull-headed, unreasonable thing to say was that?!?!?!?
My entire point in the "spelling-correction" message was to say, "Ted, you're being a prick!" I'm really sick of the way people are treating each other on this board, and I'm expressing MY right to protest it in any way I can. Just because we disagree with each other DOES NOT give us the right to use childish, pathetic insults and take potshots at each other's character whenever we can!
As for you, you should have understood that. Your statement of "usefulness" is ridiculous. I wasn't questioning Ted's usefulness to clusterheads...I was questioning his terribly disgusting insults directed at Daniel...which reading Daniel's messages as well I can say were unprovoked.
If you don't agree with him, fine. Don't talk to him. Or even state your opinion. But don't tell him his father hates him and he's single-handedly responsible for the mistreatment of millions of native South Africans. That's just DUMB.
And if YOU wanna keep taking potshots at me, you're WELCOME TO. Because as far as I can see, when it comes to plain logic and reason, I've got you beat by a long shot(there's something for a narcissist comment you can use in your reply).
