Methinks you are an idiot, that doesn't mean I'm right. Methinks you have made a racist remark and built upon it, that is readable and clear.

Mewonders what you'll be called next week.

Forgive me for interjecting here but I believe you are misusing the term 'racist'. Correct me if I am wrong.

You, of course, are not wrong.

Calling the Scots a "race" would be like suggesting that the inhabitants of South Carolina were a race apart.

I believe being unfriendly, arrogant and superior are not actual violations of the ToS/CG... whereas, calling someone an idiot must certainly is.

You're forgiven! No, I don't think I am.

Interesting GENERAL DISCUSSION, during which I've learned a lot from the forum lawyers...

I think this evening I have learned the following:

it is against the rules to state you think someone to be an idiot, even if you don't actually accuse them of being one. However it is perfectly acceptable to:

 - mock someone (who may be an idiot) and ask if they are on medication

 - infer by nationality that someone is like a stereotypical joke of their own nationality

 - sarcastically and continually repost the same pic rather than just being helpful

 - continually reappear here in various guises to state the same boring thing over and over

 - alter in reply as a "quote" what has been clearly said and on record above.

I do wonder why I campaigned for the GD to be returned if this is what it is now, quite sick and very tiring.

This has been a good lurking cure.

Hey Marcus, perhaps you could help, and, where relevant click the link at the bottom left of every post here if that post is inappropriately located. The Community Guidelines even exhort participants to help the moderators by doing so:

 

Report inappropriate content for moderator review

You can help by reporting abuse when you spot it.
If you see a post you feel violates the Community Participation Guidelines, or our Terms of Service, then please
click the Report Inappropriate Content link that appears in each post, and let us know why you feel the post is inappropriate.

It's Magnus, with a G and an N, no R and no C.

I think you're definitely using it incorrectly.  LLewd was referencing your nationality, not your race.  Therefore, you may consider it representive of prejudice against your nationality, but you have no grounds upon which to consider it racist... there is a difference.

...Dres *won't even get into the fact that a person's sense of humor is often influenced by the community in which they are embedded and how differentiating between what people of different countries find funny isn't necessarily a bad thing*  (Unless, of course, your main goal is to overly vilify someone for whom you simply do not care.)

What ARE you talking about?

Or perhaps you are having an identity crisis?

FIFY!

 

I think that's what you originally posted, and edited 3 times.

Hmmm, I can't find anything in the ToS about it being a disciplinary offence to edit a post.

In fact, perhaps you might consider doing so to yours so that they make more sense, as your formatting of quotations leaves much to be desired in terms of cogency.

And anyway, it would be self-deprecating; the Scots are only the Welsh that tried to swim to Ireland, but got lost.

Don't screw with me, you wretched, gargoylian, sack of filth.
