For the love of God will you remove the anal probe.

Yes, yes, contradicting yourself, that's the spirit.

Aparantly not. Although to be fair I was actually doing just what you
accuse me of neglecting to do, i.e. taking this and the "introduction"
threads into context.

I didn't, but you are definetly trolling, whether intentionally or not.
Anyway why are you getting upset about imagined insults? Stick around
and wait for the actual ones. They'll come.

Me too, obviously lost on your little hypocritical self. Humour was a
little high brow perhaps?

Why? We know you were splintering from that thread. Some of us actually
have several digit IQs (flashback humour, just thought I'd point it out
since you're having some difficulty with the concept).

I don't recall picking apart any of your posts. Yes I only quoted the
relevant portion rather than copy the entire tedious conversation into a
mail and repost it. That's the way replies should be. You posted the
equivalent of a list of likes and dislikes to a technical forum to
lighten things up. Personally I find that hillarious, so lighten up :D
My initial reply was lighthearted, I can't imagine why you've taken it

Steriotype? Please explain how I steriotyped you. My reply was to the
list not to you personally. Get a grip here.

Try not to cry. I really couldn't give a sh!t about you personally and I
mean that in a good way. My mail was not directed at you, you may have
noticed it wasn't even mailed to you. Seriously you can't take offence
from what was obviously a take the p!ss response. If you fire up the war
engines every time someone makes fun of you online, try not to mail
irrelevant personal profiles to large mailing lists. Now don't get your
panties all up in a bunch trying to frantically throw together an
indignant reponse, just calm yourself and go about your business.
