    It's a light hearted joke. Civgeneral is a nice person, and I don't have anything against him.

    Another good quote:

    "Oprah, Aussies ? what happened to the dark sardonic humour in Aus ?
    You want a woman in Aus to whom nothing is private ? one who has so called guests who state that being fat is hard on their self esteem?
    No golliwogs, LOL, is that not being racist against black dolls ?
    I take it her and her mob of supporters were kept out of Mossman and Kiribilli, they would not fit.
    Good thing Jackman landed on his head, else he may of injured himself." -Otago

    I neither wanted to ridicule him nor single him out. It's simply that GW is a very active and vocal poster here, which I'm sure he'll be the first to admit, so it's no surprise that many people think of him first.

    Now, that was a typo on my part (was half on the way to physical, apparently); as I said, paraphrasing. Don't want to heat up the topic again, and I hope you don't take me quoting you specifically the wrong way. Just what popped into my head first, is all :)

    RedStranger is still champion of CFC quotes as far as I'm concerned.

    He was the one who went to Cairo and someone "stoled his pants and camera," right?

    EDIT: Yes, yes he is.

    Even though I quoted you (sorry) I wasn't actually talking to you. I was just making the point that no matter what we quote from him, he is incapable of taking it in jest. He isn't being singled out for anything other than his sheer massive number of posts, but he takes it personally (in spite of the fact that others are even poking fun of themselves). Whether he is actually offended or just going for max attention, well that's another issue.

    I just suggest we not quote him as apparently he is sensitive to the whole speel.

    Yes, CivGeneral is a nice person, and he has repeatedly expressed a wish for people to NOT make jokes about this. It would be nice if people would respect that.

    I think this belongs here:

    I was trying to pick out a good JR quote, but there are just too many to choose from.

    Who was he talking too?

    The internet seems to cure neoconservatism. It cured me as well:)

    Yeah, its fine. I just kinda had a gut reaction when my anti-Godwin's Law post was posted because taken out of context it makes me look really, really bad. I understand that it already may make me look bad to some, but I'm willing to accept that if they know the context.

    I have no idea. I simply did a reverse date search for his oldest posts and picked one.

    These are from way back. I have them saved in a file from my computer. I tried to search for the original posts, but only found the first one, which is from 2007.

    Wow, that thread has both TY and Inqvisitor. What a throwback!

    Oh, and lol interventionist me. I still don't have that much of a problem with the concept, I've merely realized that the US doesn't do it for altruistic reasons but rather imperial and ultimately self-serving ones. :)

    I'm opting in for whatever quotes from me that you can find. Make me look as stupid as you want
