I've gently warned you that leaving off emoticons or other indications of levity results in this sort of post looking insulting and mean. Please stop making random comments like this that don't really add to discussion. If playful banter does seem especially appropriate for the topic, then be sure to include some indication that you aren't serious. In the future if I see these posts I'll have to work on the assumption that they are as insulting and mean as they appear, and will start deleting them and taking more strict actions.

She's called me dumb in some other thread, so I'd thought I'd get back at her lol.

It's HuffPo, so I just assume it's click bait. That seems to be about all they're good for.

Lenience doesn't even begin to describe your approach to her pervasive misconduct. You once deleted a stick-figure I drew and gave me a verbal warning because said stick-figure contained one too many I's so as to form a man (or a woman) with a third leg, presumably, yet we're allowed to call you or anyone else retarded so long as we add a smiley that implies jest, or whatever immeasurable form of subjectivity you may or may not wish to project into it at a time you may or may not feel like doing shit about it.

Why, by the way, are all these other guys like PV whom, to me, seems like all-round nice people, frequently banned, whereas you allow stars201 to go around freely being as antagonistic towards people as she please, outright insulting in fact, deliberately attempting to offend people?

You're a piece of shit, do you know that?

See, I'm adding a smiley to show that I'm just joking, so it's ok.


You're a fucking idiot who is unfit to do the job that is required of you.

It's all fun and games so long as I add a fucking smiley.

You're both fucking retards, and I hope you get run over by a bus, ti-hi

Did I make my point? Probably not. Knowing you by now, my point probably went right over your itty-bitty American head

Oh, how pleasant this was.

Before seeing this I had already adjusted my post to indicate that even if a joke was intended it was preferred not to make the post at all; certainly just adding emoticons doesn't solve the problem if the remark comes out of nowhere without a context in which joking around would seem reasonable.

I was giving her the benefit of the doubt based on most of her good behavior I've seen thus far, but was very clear that I would no longer give that benefit if the insulting behavior continued. In fact her reply here did suggest it was perhaps more a retaliatory gesture than some in-joke, so I will certainly not continue with leniency. When folks get banned, it is normally after several warnings and repeated incidents. This would account for some people having been banned while others have not (yet) been banned for similar things.

Let's not derail this thread further. It was probably poor judgment on my part to not handle the issue more privately to start with. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
