I understand it very well. In fact, I am frequently amazed at how well you communicate with written English. Because I appreciate that, I feel qualified to decide when you're intentionally being nasty. There's quite a difference.

If I were persuaded, I would ban you.
Have you noticed that I don't?
Have you noticed that I hardly nuke any of your posts?

I agree. That's why I am not persuaded.

Maybe you have a problem *reading* English. I have never said that.

Most forums don't worry so much about keeping a friendly tone. That's what makes this board different, and I like it that way.

I don't skip around saying, "Nya Nya Nya Nya Nyaaaaaaaaaaa," now do I?
It never comes up except when you decide to get nasty with somebody. Jim misread the thread and attributed something to you that had actually been said by BizNewbie. That happens all the time. There was no reason to bite his head off -- and sorry, but you're just too good with English not to know when you're sounding nasty.
Now I have to bow out. I have a date with a giraffe.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.
