So, when you say "irony", what is it you are alluding to?

I find it ironic to have him reintroduced to forums which you and many others felt would be benefit from his absense.

I found irony in your chastisement of another poster for writing of someone not in this thread when you wrote of someone not allowed in this forum.

Neither of these cases was the first application of the irony defense.

By accusing me of "ironic" about something you find offensive, means that you agreed with me and, I should be held to the same standard. Yet I'm only hearing one side of the story.

Coco made a direct personal attack on Jauani. Do you find this acceptable?

An observation - as personal attacks go it was pretty weak.

If it wasnt for a history oF animosity from flame wars, it would havent even have been noticed.


(QUOTE Pages and pages of Forum posts in this thread)

Like I said - The reason is -

After reading your post yesterday, I neither commented on it nor did I report it (nor do I intend to). My posting about it here is a commentary on your criticizing and reporting Cocoa for the same. You could have reported it without commenting on it here. You could have alerted Juani and allowed him to deal with it directly.

I am glad you agree with me, and point taken.

I didn't say I agreed with you. I didn't respond to the attempt to detract from my point in posting.

Detract you say? I make a point about a personal attack, yet you bring up an entirely different thread. Now I can say ironic.

At least you make no bones about your bias.

Please refrain from personally attacking those you do not agree with in the forums. Further interpersonal bickering will cause this thread to be closed and those involved to be disciplined.

I don't get this reporting stuff.

Are people so thin skinned that they have to run off to Mom & Dad to report when little Coco insulted them?

Nobody likes a rat.

I bristle against what I perceive to be a push to pick sides or to tell me that if I comment on this, then I have to comment on that, or else I'm not being fair. Do you whine when you get a speeding ticket because yea, you were speeding but, but, but, everyone else was too! Life is not fair. But you knew that. You've decided I'm biased? WhatEver.

Moderator, please move this thread to the Political Science forum

This thread concerns political BS and should be moved to the Political Science forum.

This is one of the topics for which the Political Science forum was created, it is clearly in the wrong place in the General forum.

Those who agree can use the triangle to remind Jeska to move this misplaced thread.

Thank you Jeska
