What "quaint tales"? What diversions? Describing bigotry on a thread that started as a protest against bigotry and narrowmindedness?

Another poster mentioned ear piercing and bigotry --I replied as explained above to 'cool' the matter/
Explain why these are diversions!
I think I was wrong about you. Maybe you are that dim after all.

I mean how could you possibly read all those words in the opening post and think it was limited to bigotry and narrow-mindedness especially in light of all the responses and references to 'the issues' of the last few weeks on BE.

How could you possibly read all that and not think that some tittle tattle about ear piercings were diversions.

Honestly, you astound me.

The arguments are too structured, its a deliberate act.

Its almost first class trolling

I didn't say it was limited, I said that the posts I replied to were about reacting or not to bigotry and narrow-mindedness-----I did not introduce those words.
Poster (anotherlimey) mentioned a situation regarding a child and her 'culture'------and to you its just "tittle tattle"!


I realise, possibly, that you did not read properly the post concerned about the ear piercing ---anotherlimey mentioned his wife and her culture and that she was very upset by the remarks. (Ear piercing at a few days old is a ritual /sort of baptismal event for some nationalities.)

Tittle tattle or culture. It's completely irrelevant and is a diversion after a polite request not to do so.

Not too sure why you two don't put bipat on ignore if she gets up your nose that much, maybe you just enjoy bullying people and calling them thick, not a great look for the forum is it?

This goes so much further than just us 'two'

Its every near enough every damn thread taken sideways, add in the racist/bigoted nonsense of shard and boiler and before that paulry. and thats the pretty much the reason for this thread!


Have a look through TIO its absolutely littered with this nonsense.

Then someone such as yourself wades in with some self righteous nonsense and it repeats ad infinitum.

I'm sure glad the forum police are here to tell us what we can and can't post. Really helps foster diversity of opinion.

Also ironic you called her "dim" . True class.

Ignore them. It's the group that professes tolerance yet shows none, fights bigotry yet indulges in it, and wouldn't know diversity if it hit them in the face.

It was an episode of bigotry he just described it and I yes added a completely irrelevant joke to calm the situation -----apologies!

You need to learn to read properly. I went out of my way to avoid actually calling bipat dim.

I actually said earlier that she's not dim. Then a bit later "Maybe you are that dim after all"...see the difference?

I thought I exercised great restraint.

As for you....I've no need to be rude about you. You describe your arse kicking talents all on your own.
