    theres alot of reference to "whining" since I first came to CFC. I'd like to know what it is? complaning? well let me give you an example:
    your entire family and country is killed, but you cant do anything about it, but wish you could, so you tell someone, "those darn bad guys" etc, and he insists your whining.
    sometimes, if you said the things you said to me face to face, I'd punch you. some of us take this foum more seriousley then others to.

    Your example isn't whining in my book...

    But I will say, even after the short time I've been here, some of the posters here can whine with the best of them. And believe me when I say, I know whining... ;)

    Your example is not whinning.

    Your actions in the second sentence would make you become a broken heap of a boy. Just because you feel rage and it makes you feel powerful don't think you can act out on it and live. ;)

    I've only gotten mad enough a 1 person to punch them in the real world, but by the time I walked up to them I wasent so mad, but sometimes, especially when I have a VERY VERY VERY important issue to me, and people say I'm just whining, I'd punch them. I've never punched anyone before.

    I do not punch people but sometimes people here make me mad enough to do so

    I take the issues I bring up very seriousley, and by saying I whine, you trivalize them, thereby making me want to punch you

    and just to reinforce I dont punch people. hence, you guys make me madder then people in the real wrold

    I have punched people in real life. I wish you were here with me Pellaken... :D And you say you spend half your life here? YOU FREAK, get a life! The mods don't spend half their life here, TF doesn't either!!! Comparing a family being killed to CFC bans that you deserve is garbage. Frickin guy... :rolleyes:

    People feel you win because you take CFC too seriously. Its a forum for Civ not a forum for debating minor rule changes.

    I'm not there anymore.
    The irony is absolutely delicious. A whiny thread about whining. Pellaken, you think you have a horrible life and that gives you license to *****, moan, gripe, and generally make an ass of yourself. Let me tell you, brother, I don't want to hear it. There are others in this world who have it rough, and they don't go on a 24/7 whine fest about it. Get a freaking grip. You aren't the center of the universe.

    If I seem bitter, I have a reason. Anyone who knows me well enough will know why.

    He'll be back. He'll always be back. Remember the time he said he'd never be back? And then he was back.

    Am I making sense here? :crazyeye:
