Now that's what I call an actual contribution. I'm very impressed.
TheBookPolice wrote:Okay, I've taken you off Ignore. Which, by the way, is a tool for not having to see your posts involuntarily. If I want to read what you have to say, I can choose to do so. But Ignore allows me to not have to see your "contributions" until such time as I want to.
I have never used the ignore feature so I don't know how it works. When I want to ignore somebody I just ignore them and don't respond to their posts. For instance, most of the time I ignore you because you don't say very much that interests me.
TheBookPolice wrote:You'll notice that your BS indictment of Jason as a journalist was the first comment that drew a response from me in some time.
Actually I have not made very many posts in the last month or so because I have been very busy with other things. I posted today because I took a holiday and had the time.
What I said regarding Jason was hardly an indictment. However, Jason is a journalist and before he states things as facts he should confirm their truth. I hold him to a higher standard. I realize I was busting his balls but he is a big boy and can handle it. He doesn't need you to fight his battles for him.
TheBookPolice wrote:Roughly, I'd say, since you went with a bad breath joke against me. Yeah, cowardice. I've been shaking in my galoshes since then.
Sorry I don't remember any bad breath jokes I made against you. Can you refresh my memory? (no pun intended)
TheBookPolice wrote:Prove me wrong, egomaniac. Make actual contributions, not bullshit posturing, and I'll be happy to treat with you as I would with anyone else on the DPF. If you think my tone is insulting...well, that's because I'm completely unimpressed with you of late, and that's the hole out of which you have to climb (as far as my opinion of you is concerned).
Go ahead. Make your amends. I'm thrilled that you're trying. But if you'd rather just retire, feel free.
You calling me an egomaniac is the pot calling the kettle black. I do ignore you most of the time because I am as unimpressed with you as you are with me. However, I have read many posts you have made where you display the exact characteristics that you criticize me for.
Finally, I do not post here in order to seek approval from you, Jason, or anyone else. I am finally learning something that I should have learned a long time ago. The best way to deal with personal insults is to ignore them and not respond with more insults. If you want to discuss issues with me then let's discuss issues. If you want to discuss my personality or character then this forum is not the place to do so. If you want to ignore me then ignore me. But I do confess I am a difficult person to ignore - on the forums and in real life.
