RP seriously I don't want you to get banned, you're inadvertently hilarious.

I didn't realise I was cornered by anyone, and I am intrigued to hear more about your shifty uncle. :wink:

Always desperate for attention.

Sorry Seph, said what I wanted to say and not really interested in continuing any further.

Fair enough, although you seem to be the most dramatic, at least today.

Maybe you will send me another apology in PM when you've cooled down.

only really apologised for certain things. never backed down from my opinion of you.

Sad, trying to imply that I keep apologising to you, and aren't you the one that on several occasions mentions that private messaged should not be dragged out on to the open forum.

Suppose the hypocrisy is par the course for you and it should not surprise me one bit.

its sad that despite me trying to end it you have to cross the line that little further to try and make me bite. Why even bother.

RP - we're both human, and if you are going to take cheap shots at me, I don't think its entirely unreasonable to have a few sly digs back. We're beyond any sensible argument on a specific topic. You've always crossed the line further than me and more frequently, even if its meant coming up with the most fanciful of bizarre insults. You brought it down again to this level.

All these posts will inevitably get swept up and deleted anyway. I do believe this may be our first row of 2017 - so happy new year! :mrgreen:

What have I created? :shock:

My original post was about sjw's, both the real, hardcore ones and the weak, preachy and all over social media types that are all 'look at me, I'm outraged by that and if you question anything I will berate you as some sort of right wing trump loving misogynistic racist'

So far I have had to stop myself commenting on so many statuses, news articles shared etc by people I once considered good friends because I know it will P me off so much I will end up saying something they will delete me over.

Maybe it's social media that grinds my gears? I have only kept Facebook because I run a motorsport competition on there

Blimey guys, the forum has been a pleasant little place for the past months.

Maybe both RP and Seph should know when to stop. I certainly don't want to go back deleting posts so will leave all as is... You've had your spat, now move on to something more interesting gear grinding.

Quite possibly. I can stomach the occasional SJW comments, but found the tone of the nationalist/jingoistic posts to be far more tragic and such pointless and irrational hate so I deleted my facebook account a while back. To be fair, there are so many legitimate reasons for one to delete their facebook account, so blaming the far right noisy nationalists solely is perhaps unfair, but they were certainly on the long list.

I guess I was more bored of seeing the same people doing the exact same selfie poses (clearly in a position and angle they feel presents them at their "optimum") just to obtain a few more cheap ego soothing and dopamine rushing "likes".

Selfies are Gear grinding for sure, how narcissistic do you have to be to constantly want to post your own mug? Though if I didn't have a face like a smacked arse I might feel differently :D

Selfie you say

TBH I hate people that post an endless stream of generic mug shots, they usually get hidden from my facebook feed, at least have something going on in the picture
