If you stopped retailiating to every minor insult and ignored them then you wouldn't get into the slanging matches that inevitably start -- and which end up in threads getting derailed and people getting ROPS etc.You've got it exactly the wrong way round, mush. Which is to be expected from a sock-puppet like you. There's a band of eight or nine ARRSErs who've formed a schoolyard bullying clique and who pursue me constantly and obsessively across the ARRSE boards posting their stupid, childish remarks. But when I retaliate, it's all my fault? What would you do under those circumstances? It's they who're constantly attacking me, not me attacking them. All I do is react to their bollix, yet you believe that it's me who causes it all?
I haven't spent years pursuing them across the boards and deliberately derailing threads just to loose off stupid remarks. I don't mention them on threads on which they haven't even posted just to get in yet another infantile jibe. But you believe I'm to blame? Listen, fella, they don't interest me in the slightest and I'd never go out of my way to post anything about them, except by way of retaliation when they attack me - which they do constantly. So why don't you ask them what they get from their stupid little game, eh? And why they constantly derail threads and spoil the enjoyment for other ARRSErs just so they can get in yet another infantile jibe that has nothing to do with the subject at hand?
Equally, if you stopped posting stuff that is deliberately intended to be provocative, then you would not get the reaction that you say you hate.
You're obviously well read in certain areas, and therefore may have some level of intelligence, but from where I'm sitting (comfortably) it appears that you are spring loaded to the pi55ed off position and actually thrive on the attention.
