Oh BerrySteph, as Marid would say in an Effinger novel, "You so right".
I didn't even know that he was one to ignore, and not argue with. Thought that there was something there that had a sense of meaning and compassion, but I was deluded, again.
So why are you still posting unrequested posts still -- slow learning curve I guess.
G=G+1 not confused, in this case both apply. call it whatever you like junk mail either way.
That was a very, very long explanation.
No ad hominem responses. That's pretty much all I could take from it, sorry.
That's on my start page as a rule, anyway.
On that we agree.
But I once got a G=G+1 for teasing you about a post that contained atrocious spelling. I mean REALLY bad, not just the odd word, but almost every one.
So, sometimes your macro can be a tad sensitive to what it perceives as an "ad hom" (i.e.: attack the argument, not the person), and the G=G+1 response ends up turning light banter into insult, where none was intended.
If you object to the criteria I use, why be a passive-aggressive coward
Attack the argument, not the person. No ad homs, please.
I get the bad spelling comment often. No, excuse, but several reasons. First I don´t care, type stream of conscious, and don´t bother to edit. Secondly as a very fast touch typist, who neither looks at the keys, nor the CRT (poor eye sight and focus result of a stroke), Third point is because I often work in several languages, my typing often reflects a different language (constitució) or phonetic (two, too, to). I have no problema with legit complaints when my errors interfere with the message of my post. However do object when my message is obvious, and the spelling-grammar complaint are merely a way for the respondent to negate the message, or avoid responding.
Not valid, my ad hom was a response to and ad hom, e.g. valid.
What a lot of crock!
G=G+1 your "crock" is just an unqualified ad hom, unless you can produce logic or facts to justify it.
It is also OT considering it has nothing to do with the thread title "U.K. and Europe"
I get that spelling mistakes happen.
But there when your macro misinterprets jovial teasing as something else that does not fit into your formula for a "valid response", it creates tension where none is needed.
