    So in your world people who post a lot deserve to be attacked?

    It's a numbers game. He's not justifying an attack. But you do need to go outside more.

    Odds of being attacked vs deserved ...

    Or is this an attack? It isn't meant to be, but without verbal and visual input a mere sentence not meaning any harm can be perceived quite differently from how we intend it.

    Online - Flamewars, Godwin's Law etc were around before the World Wide Web.

    Sorry to derail this thread, but can someone explain the Vertex thing? I've never even heard of this company before reading this reply.

    Thread needs NOS Mullard transistors to be relevant.

    Only on the thread because "Civilization and its Discontents" was a great book by Freud. Was hoping to see some Freudian slips at least, but nothing.

    And of course there is the corollary Martyr Syndrome ... How could they not understand my unclear point and misunderstanding of the topic/post, the dolts?

    All part of the fun and frustration of online communication.

    Well, how many free hours do you have?

    It’s a LONG story.

    This place is pretty cool, I’m usually in the Tone and Technique forum lately but I actually find them all pretty chill with the exception of the pub. I post there with much caution now, if at all.

    Well, I see that things have already devolved, in a depressingly predictable manner.

    The search bar is your friend.
    Regards,
    TGP

    ;)


    Seriously, it IS a long story, and embodies a lot of what the OP is talking about.



    And, to the OP: for real, stay out of Digital & Modeling. And the Pub.
