Really?!?!?! Are you serious?!?! Well, since you put it that way, I think I know now what I need to say.

I really thought these guys were great, and voted on many of their pics and enjoyed their contributions and discussions on this site. But if they, and seemingly you too, can't take a little joke, meant to have a little fun on this site, then tough shit!
Perhaps you should all have a beer to build your confidence, grab your balls out of your wives' purse, rub a little dirt on your personal wounds, and toughen up that skin a bit!
If you can't handle American humor, SORRY! No need to take your ball and go home, is it?

Good lord what a bunch of primadonnas!!! Reminds me of this crybaby member sometimes!!! What is it with all of you people who think you have some sort of "right" to not be offended?
Uhmmm...Butitsadryheat, I just opened the "crybaby" link, and it lead me straight to my profile page! Surely a software mistake somewhere? :lol:
Well, at least at the moment, yes, I am crying...the fact that chaberton left makes me pretty sad...

It is up to them to return, and I don't think we can do anything about it. If we could get their pages on the adoption list, I think that would be a good first step.


Thank you, Andrew !

There's a hell-a-va lot of truth in what you say. Once a member leaves, we can't make them return.

Yes, it was around long before I did it, and it will be around long after.

In discussing this tizzy with another long time member, it was pointed out how when this trick is played on an American, while they may get pissed at first, once they find out it is a joke, they usually laugh it off and appreciate it. In fact, I just got a PM from one member who reacted just that way.

Perhaps those who are so upset about this are so used to the government stepping in and making laws that don't allow anyone to offend anyone else, they simply can't take a simple joke anymore? If so, I find it funny. Especially considering that the one who told me to shut up was once known to make very offending, derogatory remarks about another member here, insulting him about his nationality and calling him a dirty eastern European. For him to stand up and act as though he were above it is simply hypocritical and dishonest. Right Mahai?

Including me.

It was five years ago. I hit the link to see who the suspicious person who needed watching was. At the time, I had just a handful of forum posts, and I had maybe 10 pages. My pulse quickened...I wondered what I had done wrong...and then I considered the fact that I hadn't been warned by the elves and hadn't had my pages downvoted and realized that maybe, just maybe, this was some game. And it was!

You don't even need a thick skin for this. What you need are a little patience and a sense of humor.

This is not a cultural thing. American members have blown their tops over this, too.

It is a matter of taking a deep breath and doing a little looking and asking before you start firing away.

It ALWAYS pays to do that.

But if you prefer to be a drama queen, that is your right.

And that last remark is not aimed at either Borut or Chaberton, since both requested their deletions privately. It's aimed at others who drew first and fired away without doing any due diligence first.

Cheers!
