And, like the other occasion, it's not necessarily you I'm thinking about.

If I say to you "rep_lol, I can't take your opinion seriously because you're a worthless poor person"....

It's hard to express how elitist and condescending that is to every single poor person. It makes no difference whether you specifically are poor or not or whether you specifically are offended.

And the same goes for power and education. If I insult you by saying your educational attainment wasn't high enough, how is that not an insult to every other poster in this thread who has that same or lower level of educational attainment?

It's just so elitist.

But, whatever, Clovis, you don't owe me an apology, or really rep_lol. I just think it's something to think about. Be a dick to the people you want to be a dick to, but don't include some whole other group of people in on it.

I agree it was insulting to more than rep, the intended target. I was having fun mocking rep and didn't think of the larger context of the insult. I didn't mean it that way but can see how it would be read as thus. My apology was not to you, and certainly not rep, but to the people it mocked.

As soon as you or anyone explains how such a bet could be adjudicated I will happily bet $500.

How would we track every post all of you make on the internet over the next year or their veracity?

Are you allowed to say "in b4" after the post you are predicting? Doesn't that break the space time continuum or something?

Re: Sarah Palin, BruceZ, and Mean People on the Internet

Perhaps you don't understand what adjudicate means?

Lol you edited your post to add your favourite sexist phrase again.

Ok, it was totally my bad that I made two big assumptions, making asses out of you and me and everybody else.

I didn't spell out from the jump that IMO the insult of, to quote myself from earlier, "saying the person is of such sufficiently low character that they would brutalize their own people in order to kowtow and curry favor with their authoritarian overlords," is way more of an extreme charge than any gobbledygook racist epithets. I assumed this angle was obvious but Yuv et al said I was, "only saying kapo is..." And I'm like, there's no "only" here, that's the big deal thing.

Like, "A kapo by any other name would still smell as foul."

I've lost track of the number of times I've referred to wil with his fascist bootlicking as, "vying for Honorary Aryan status," and rightfully nobody interprets that as slanderous against Japanese or Korean people. And yes, it's a barb specifically related to him being Korean.

The other assumption is that I thought Yuv for the most part agreed but wanted to make Fly wriggle on the hook. I wasn't trolling when I said I suspected Yuv might be trolling.

But if people want to decree "kapo" has N-word status, that's fine. When in Rome.

Re: Sarah Palin, BruceZ, and Mean People on the Internet

do you really not see how it would "adjudicate" itself if i backed down from a lie and changed my story to say "oh well who cares, the scorn is deserved regardless" ?

i thought you were educated and stuff bro

but yea go ahead and cop out like a scrub, nobody expected you to go through with it anyway. chez will still be your friend.
