  2. I generally click on profiles with the express intention of avoiding pervs, or morons, or dullards, or anyone mentioning avoiding drama (which usually means they love indulging in it), or anyone saying if you mess with whoever you will deal with me, or those who consider they exclude themselves from the ToS with some variation of expressing their right to publish chat, or everyone who fills up their picks with THE FAMILY, or ... the list is not exhaustive, but it gives me an idea of the person. Anyone who writes anything in their profile is an idiot to shout "perv" at anyone who looks at their profile, illogically why write anything if you want no-one to look?
  3. Thanks Rufferta., particularly Having a rl friend who is a mole, I know they have great pride in the public works in sl particularly the railways, roadways and waterways, like for example the seas. Years ago I rented about half of Purple, one of the oldest sims in sl, with access to the end of the SLRR and the sea.
  4. Tried different projectors from work to see if any would be good, and even our super duper expensive one was a bit blurry. In the end I replaced the middle of my three monitors with this 29" ultra widescreen and it's the best monitor I've used for sl. It's very immersive.
  5. All your bases belong to me, if I remember an old troll properly.

Only the weak believe that. No, not only the weak. The less insecure wise believe it too.

  10. 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.

Racist because you rely on the fundamental underpinning which is racism, this being "The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race". Not all Scots regard Rab C Nesbitt to be the "acme of wit" and to suggest, as you have, is a racist stereotyping. Methinks the lady doth protest o'ermuch. [PS The Scots aren't a race; they don't even want to govern themselves.] 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're forgiven! No, I don't think I am.

[PS You messed up the formatting of your post so not just noobs are going to be confused by it.] [PPS I have been asked to clarify that I am not accusing Magnus of actually being Rab C Nesbitt; or any relation to him.] The good thing about receiving updates by email is we can all see what was originally written and not changed since, to fit our own ends. i repeat, so nothing can be confused by formatting, the attitude of many regular posters (in more guises than a kid on several years of Hallowe'en Nights) is unfriendly, arrogant and superior.

  15. I care not for support, and abhor sympathy. I care a lot for new folks confused and posting where it may gain help. If I were one of those posting here, I'd be upset by the continual posting of a pic of a screen which I didn't recognise. I do remember you being a voice when the GD vanished. Considering those who have no idea of this history, and perhaps see the word GENERAL, I think we could be a little kinder, no matter how annoying it is. Exasperation perhaps, like using the phrase "sick and tired"!

Magnus Brody wrote: largely find it unfunny I am not surprised, your reputedly having spent a considerable amount of time living in a country where Rab C Nesbitt is considered the acme of wit. Frankly racist, neither where I have spent some of my life, my nationality nor my country of birth predefines my sense of humour. Thankfully all of the aforementioned finds your arroagnce unfunny. Magnus Brody wrote: not worry too much about how perfectly English it is. Perfectly English? That's an oxymoron, at least it is to a Welshman. Or perhaps that isn't quite what you were trying to say... You know quite well it wasn't, referencing as I was English as a language, and your continual superior correction of it, not English as a nationality. It is exactly this which demonstrates my point: unfriendly, arrogant and superior. I feel for the new members of the SL community, who come to a general discussion forum and are either cut short with spammed pics of the answers page, or made to feel like they should never have trod here by those who feel it their personal playground of unwitty put down and sarcasm. i have said this for years, since 2006, without having to rejoin these forums which, in many ways, speaks for itself.
  17. LlewLlwyd wrote: Either you are taking things a little seriously, Magnus, or you need to change your medication. Or both. Thankfully, I have spent an entire life needing no medication whatsoever, but thanks for a viewpoint which arrogantly indicates I must be mad to disagree with the great superior intellect that is you. As for taking things too seriously, I see the humour attempt in all that you do, largely find it unfunny and when it comes to the more naive and less experienced members of the SL community, find it distastefully arrogant, superior and unfriendly. Again, this is the GENERAL DISCUSSION forum, which I for one fought very long and hard to bring back here. I hope everyone can feel relaxed about posting anything GENERAL, and not worry too much about how perfectly English it is.
  18. i am frankly sick and tired of your continual spam here. I remember a time when many of us fought long and hard to retain a GENERAL DISCUSSION forum mostly because, when the new forums were introduced, minus the GENERAL DISCUSSION forum, they were so prescriptive/specific and often irrelevant there was nowhere to ask general questions. Now it seems, unless we follow your rules of what is acceptable or post in fear of being grammatically corrected continually by your supercilious friend, the GENERAL DISCUSSION forum has become an unfriendly place to generally discuss anything. It's about time the moderators stepped in and took back control of a forum which is for all, not just the petty fiefdom of two. i used to so enjoy posting here (for nearly 5 years) and lurking when I did not, but lately it has become a two man unfunny and never ending show. To everyone else: spend some time in SL, where many of us are friendly and will help answer questions, the utter rudeness and superiority displayed in these forums is not indicative of the SL community generally.

The clue is in the title, so I am happy to see a discussion about generally anything, including repeated topics or questions. I am less happy with supercilious posts pontificating how the plebeian hordes should behave. As I said in the OP: "GD is for the expression of opinions (although not necessarily accurate, coherent or friendly ones) and the interactive exchange of viewpoints on issues which may have no deterministic resolution, particularly given the spectrum of (non)emotional and political attitudes which forumites possess." You are entitled to your opinions, you are entitled to express them as part of the discussion here, and you are entitled to be considered inaccurate, supercilious, unfriendly and tiresome by me and just as much of a pleb as those with fewer posts to their name. I should add that Drake would probably have considered your post as trolling if it were posted under my name; funny that... So we agree, excellent! In so much, a discussion here can be about generally anything, including yours and any other person, and we're both entitled to our opinions. I am pleased that you can now see it is entirely unreasonable to expect those of less knowledge than yourself, to follow rules that aren't posted anywhere. Carrry on posting, re-ask your questions, cover topics covered before - it's allowed!

  21. Putting to one side your original question was answered, AR them, many thanks for the update which adds more peanut butter to the peanut butter sandwich. Irrespective of the peanut butter level, or even in fact the very reason for the existence of the peanut butter, or your views on the peanut butter, you were told about the peanut butter. So thanks for the extra helping of the peanut butter. You should still AR them.
  22. There is the weirdest echo in here. I am looking for a friendly penguin family to waddle about in that way they do. I'd rather like fish and sharing of fish catching stories. At other times, I should like to go off and indulge in my other hobby: pretending to be other people, and yet with the same goal, the penguin thing.
  23. Great, child friendly pubs and having to put up with them there, now new SL, is there nowhere one can escape the annoyance of others' children?
