    Well I meant in the general sense as a part of a phrase but if you're going to be like then what about pet?

    Calling him dommy, while not an actual insult, certainly seems a petty slight in my eyes, you know what I mean man?
    But the most recent one I read was someone writing in all caps telling him basically to get lost, except they used more colourfull language.

    Nope, there was no valid criticism
    I was pointing out an example, he apologises and valka tells him to shove it. I don't think that's a crap example at all.

    I don't think he was complaining considering he said "that I would consider to do so in a friendly and constructive manner."

    Can you link that because that doesn't sound good.

    It was removed by a moderator.

    So why are you saying that the moderators don't step in when Ghostwriter gets insulted? :confused:

    It's short for my old username, Domination3000.

    You're definitely on that list, and you don't need to apologize. My positions are absolutely fair game. Tear them apart, do what you like. Just don't insult me personally and you're alright;)

    Found a comically stock response to much of Ghostwriter's posts which proves me and Oruc's points.

    True or false is not the point. It's just a massive put down.

    Which is a noble thing to do. Turn the other cheek and all that.

    But initally you read it and I can imagine you took some offense. I would have.

    It's just not on.

    Of course there is a point I read all your posts. Thanks for thinking of me. And, BTW, your magic number is: "up".

    ;)

    That would be me.

    I can't recall offending anyone, so



    Seriously though, if I have, I'm sorry.

    I don't see calling him Dommy as petty. I call him Dommy because that's what I've always called him since he appeared on the forum.

    Dommy, sorry for being rude to you at any point in my life, (or my time on cfc rather :lol:). Your views just aggravate me sometimes :lol:

    It's a nickname. Some people will never be free of their original usernames, no matter how many times they might change it.

    Valka would like to know when this happened and what it was about, because Valka doesn't remember. :huh: I have NEVER told anybody on this forum to "shove it."

    Birdjaguar, since you obviously decided not to mention the PDMA part of all this, I would appreciate your refreshing my memory. Please drop me a PM.

    I assume that, while PDMA is unacceptable, public discussion of your existence is fair game?

    Or is that also covered under 'to be is to do'.

    Those quotes are from two different conversations. I was talking about your post in this thread where you complained Ghostwriter didn't apologise correctly. If you don't accept his apology you're telling him to shove it.
