Ok i am going to play cheat and fast forward to some later posts.Originally Posted by dkw
Did i say i was the one getting lynched? Nope. In fact, point it out where i said that i was getting bullied by other members, and i will say you are correct.
You want to come into the debate, at least have the common senseto read what your opponent wrote.
Dude, read thread #15.Originally Posted by shinken
From what you wrote, it appears to me that you realize while some understand the negative connotation, some do not necessary embrace it? Is that what you meant?
Now, imagine if the portion of the people that embrace the negative conntation insist to take down a thread with the title Creampie, with total disregard to those who do not share their opinion. And that is fine?
Like i said in #15, i dont really care what your opinion. I am sure you dont care about mine. But a certain group find a need to assert their opinion on others, so i just happily do likewise.
Dude, embracing negative connotation is miles and worlds different from being sensitive to others from being associated with one.Originally Posted by fattyboonboon
I rest my case. Happy warring.
Thank you. I agree with you entirely. Whatever ideas/meanings/connotations that we devised for ourselves, we keep them to ourselves.Originally Posted by TMC
We must be prepared to realize that over the same thing, there can potentially be a drastic difference in opinions.
And the wise way of using this knowledge is to not impose your own ideas on others.
boonboon, retreat while u still can.
else u may really suffer the same fate as quite a few others before you.

Hey, are you really sure you're involved in science and engineering? I thought ppl in science really have better things to do, or at least the people that I know of.
Honestly, you could use the effort to argue to either cultivate your new hobby or invest it in more productive past times.
To put it straight:
1) I don't think all of us are interested nor have the time to interact in an 'intelligent debate' where each post last up to a 1000 words. Neither am I, and it was never an 'intelligent debate', because there is nothing worthwile to argue about. Period.
2) Duh, of course a portion of ppl will ask the thread to be taken down. The world has its fair share of tight asses....fact of life. You can't please everybody.The shoot is still going to go on isn't it?
3)Honestly, you're use of finesse and flowery words to weave your subtle verbal dodging in and out is getting everybody on their nerves. It gives the impression that you're a hoity toity 'finger in the air' intellectual who just wants to get his way.
I totally disagree with you on this .... i think boonboon writes well and has a good command and a good grasp of the English language .... At least for me, i enjoy his words ... I think this pt 3 is hitting below the belt...Originally Posted by Wisp
always the Light, .... always.

Apart from the shifting of grounds, now its selective rebuttals and dodging of painful blows.
Wisp, you are finally here.Originally Posted by Wisp
I do not agree with what you say in the 2nd and 3rd statements, nor did i ever claim that you are. But if that is your opinion, it is not right for me to try to force you to change it.
However, i have to say, i am disappointed with you. I stated right at the start to keep this civilised and intelligent, but you resorted to mud-slinging like a 15 yr old on some gaming forum? If there is anything i learn from those forums, is that mud-slinging has a miraculous, undefined tracjectory of having the mud land right back at your own face.
So you went from exerting your personal idea that Creampie is a porn word, to exerting your idea that i am a congenital half-wit (going to a full wit) and an idiot onto me now? You really cant take the fact that there is a differing opinion outside of your own isnt it?
You didnt have stellar results for 'O' level, i FAILED my english in 'A' levels.
Polytechnic student? Engineering student? What has that got to do with anything? Are you implying that they naturally have poor english?
While i do admit that some of my students are struggling with english, there are those who actually do excel in that. I do not agree with the generalization that all poly or engineering students have weak english, and i have no intention of propagating that false stereotype.
So you want to continue with your mud-slinging while hiding behind your poor english? Since you keep insisting that your english is holding you back, come, let me help you. I will suggest a few words for you and you are welcome to sling it at me.
Pompous, Bigot, Moron, Dolt, Jerk, Skunk, Egghead, Imbecile, Dork, Jackass, and do you want to include "Creampie" too?
Haha, i am not a fanboy of Doc. I am merely greeting my opponent, which is common courtesy among competitions or debates. I am just acknowledging that we have met before and his kindness for showing me his equipment. I believe that helps to control the atmosphere and keep everyone's cool. Not too sure about coming in gun-totting and mud slinging though.
If you want to insist i am a fanboy, i think i am more of a fan of Mattlock's works and another photographer here(who has not appeared in this thread so i shall leave him out). Not that doc is not good, but it is all down to personal taste. So no offence to anyone.
*shrug* that's all right if you disagree with me. I stand by what I said. However, I would suggest there's often more than one aspect of intepreting somebody's words, like what I'm saying to you now .Originally Posted by Canonised

Why should I bother? You already did the mud slinging on yourself already by going epileptic on my comments.Originally Posted by fattyboonboon
