I am not going to debate my last post with you, I made my feelings pretty clear, if you choose to rationalise them and deflect back to me thats fine. I am pretty sure that I am not the first person that has looked at you in this light, in fact you have openly admitted that people often mistake what you say. If several people see you this way maybe it is your posting style and not them that is the problem.

I will address your final two points first the racism thing because you specifically asked. I see latent racism in alot of your posts (you are not alone either) aimed at arabs or people from a different country from yourself. As an example please see post #16 on the hobby thread, this was completely off the subject and uncalled for it was intended as an immigrant bashing post and the subsequent poster raised it. I also notice on another ongoing thread that you jokingly refer to yourself as being considered a Nazi by other posters.

I was not aware of YouTube removing posts if they receive so many thumbs down, this is not something that I do not advocate, unless the post is particularly offensive. I think that maybe the poster would think twice if a large number people disagreed with what they were saying. Often we disagree with posts, but there is nothing to report, we have positive karma why not negative karma? I'm sure alot of people disagree with my posts as well and maybe I would reconsider my approach if there was some kind of anonymous feedback system.

This post is directed at one forum member and not the whole board. Why should I go behind his back when I can say it to his face? If you don't like it don't read or put me on ignore, simple.

Noted, you should have seen that I was replying to a post directed at me, I did not quote the post because it was very large. Thanks for moderating me Shiva.

Having been here substantially longer than and knowing at least four regular members here in real life (and casually meet many more) I can say to you that if you think one or two people disagreeing with me is grounds for me to retreat into a cave and mull my posting style when I've never been warned by any moderators to my knowledge you know what you can go and do with your suggestions. I don't care for your holier than thou attitude newbie. If you wish to dispute what I say do it, don't use long posts as an excuse for not having a valid point you can back up with facts or bemoan my posting style in general because you personally don't like it. I wasn't born to please everyone...especially you.

And this is the Sand Pit AKA: The off topic forum...

Quotes please, specific quotes. I don't want to look through other threads...the burden of proof is on the one who makes the claim.

The problem with people like you is you think everything that is unkind towards people in other countries is racism. So if I say I think my culture is better generally than Pashtun herdsmen I'm a racist. I could be descended of Pashtun herdsmen but I'm a racist apparently.

Racism is the negative judging of people based on their ethnicity. If I say all black people are stupid I'm a racist. If I say some African countries are in a terrible state because their culture and values aren't the same as mine I've made a statement of cultural comparison not race.

So by all means accuse me of being a racist if you will - I'll mention it to my coffee coloured son, my Chinese finance, the black people in my paternal family and my Irish cousins and aunts....silly person. You might have grounds to accuse me of cultural bias but not racial.

Also, jokingly referring to the muppets who call me a Nazi is funny - the jokes on them not me. I wouldn't meet any Nazi racial "purity" test even if I did subscribe to National Socialism...which I do not.

I think any situation where truth is determined by popular approval is dangerous and wrong. You seem to want a "niceness" meter. Seems rather babyish to me but each to their own.

I really don't care who is offended, for few seem to care about offending me. I will respect those who deserve it, which comes by earning it. I don't name call or slander people's professions, race or gender (I have been known to make bad jokes though but most aren't stupid enough to take them out of context). If you reference what I post you'll see it's all grounded in fact.

This post just about sums you up. As I said earlier, people fall into one of two camps--those who can manage reasoned debate, and those who can't.

A spelling mistake.

Nice cop out...being worn out. Seems more than two paragraphs and you give up - but still maintain your absurd allegations like me being racist.

If you can't reply please take back your accusations.

Yes you are an expert on every facet of my life both on and off line. You are just as idiotic as the first post you ever made in my direction.

There was no reasoned debate at all the thread was getting way too personal and as someone else pointed out should not really be in the public domain.
