In this case my standard to which the "G" applies is a meaningless statement
Why. ..why...why... do you just keep torturing us with your "standards". I mean, really, is it necessary for you?
Why not ask yourself why you are trolling me with pointless posts. In these cases, I am merely responding to your posts which I find a waste of time even bothering to open. I do so because I am polite, and asume you have a need to express yourself and get a response. In case you have lost focus, the topic is a valid one, and not necessarily personal, it is "UK and Europe", the "G" is for your unwanted off topic comments.
your posts which I find a waste of time even bothering to open
Whatever, dude, you are so off-topic usually, if you wish to not fence with me, it is quite easy for you to put me on "ignore". I do gather that I have hurt your feelings, in our spats, and do apologize for the wounding.
*Have you seen a doctor yet?
What ever gave you the idea that you hurt myfeelings. This is an example of you judging others by yourself. I stated that your OT posts are a waste of time, thus indicated with the previously defind variable "G" (garbage or graffitti, or whatever). I merely implied that if you can´t dealwith the thread topic, or the subject of my posts to which you are pretending to respond, why post to me at all if all you are going to get as a response is the usual "G".
anybody who confuses garbage with graffiti is obviously more than G=G+1
why post to me at all if all you are going to get as a response is the usual "G".
Some of us decided this was unnecessarily hard work a long time ago.
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.
