Doesn't anyone here remember the thread in Random "Why are 90% of this forum jerks?"

 

i do but i also know Zumbi, lol At least that he's sensitive.

 

Mick

 

Do you think that he is the only sensitive person here?

 

How many times has he insulted us? But that's all right?

 

I'm not his biggest fan nor is he mine. so i limit my interaction with him.

 

I know it was a harmless joke, Lorraine.

 

most of us do.

 

don't sweat it. :)

Agreed. He certainly doesn't have the market cornered on being sensitive. He may have a problem with the translation but it seems to me you were trying to be nice and include him with the rest of us... :huh: :)

 

Thank you. That was the point.

Farewell to Kings Ambassador has the power to strike Zumbi's vote from the record, since by his own admission it is not a serious vote but he is refusing to remove the no vote out of some pranksterish impulse.

 

I make a motion to include Zumbi in the 90%!

second.

 

Wonderful! Then, without further ado..................................................

 

Zumbi, you are a jerk!

 

After all I have done for you, and you call me a jerk...? Thanks.... Then I know that...

 

Zumbi, do you know what a joke is?

 

You have thinner skin than an onion. While she poked at that thread you made all those months ago that was an honest attempt of friendship from Lorraine.

Uh, Zumbi's retort sounded like he was joking right back at the person who called him a jerk to me. Gotta love loss of vocal tonage :P

That occurred to me too. I guess you're safest serving your dish with a side order of :blush: ;) :P :D :) . . . or at least remembering that generally everybody here is a pal!

I need a button attached to the lapel of my coat saying "Everybody here is a pal!", lol. If you make them, you have a buyer right here :coy:

Unfortunately those three letters make up about a hundred different acroyms, including "political action league" and "parolee at large" (although I guess if you were in violation of your parole you probably wouldn't wear a button announcing that fact . . .)

It is unfortunate but the only chance Rush fans have of agreeing on any song is to choose a song from the seventies (that would include Permanent Waves ;) ). Once we go past that time in Rush history, things get spotty. Not even everyone here likes Tom Sawyer :o .

 

No agreement on anything in the 80's. I'll prove you wrong!

Uh, no.

 

Some of us know him a lot better than you do. He was not joking.

Honestly, why is this an issue? Why do you really care?

I guess I just mean we know what he's like, and he's one of the least repugnant trolls we've had in the past few years.

First heard it on Exit when i bought it new back in the day.I liked it but i wasn't crazy about it mainly because it could have sounded better and that goes for the whole album.Soon bought AFTK and it blew the live Exit version away.Bought the Sector2 set recently and Exit sounds so much better than my vinyl and old unremastered cd.Its twenty minutes to the shopping centre from home and i gave Broons,Trees and Xanadu a good blast in the car.Did the same on the way back!

I think it's because no one likes to be misconstrued as being unkind when being unkind was not the intention at all.

That happens quite a lot. For one thing I think it's easy to misconstrue sarcasm when you can't hear the tone of voice or see someone's face to know if they're kidding or not.

True. Happens all the time, on these internets.
