Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Wed Feb 20, 2013, 03:40 AM

I could never express myself as good as you.

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by REP (a host of the General Discussion forum).

I grew up in Europe.
I've been here for almost two decades. Does that make me less than you?
I don't think so.

1. Of course it doesn't. And as you undoubtedly speak another language

that gives you a leg up on a lot of us.

4. Onw of my posts was hidden just for telling someone who atacked my spelling to piss off.

He/she knew I grew up overseas and yet attacked me anyway. That low DU has gone. Whatever.

Here is why:

In this thread you attack others and keep up the whining. Ooh, you got one post hidden wherein you told someone to "piss off" and you can't stop carrying on about, posting threads in GD and Meta.

And your reply to my initial post of support couldn't be more UNGRACIOUS.

Attacking others doesn't make a very good case.

6. Bloody hell! This place is stranger than I thought...

 

Don't let it get to you, though-- I discovered Meta where some of the real assholes hang out.

8. Welcome to Du

, ya I'd stay away from meta until you've developed entrails of steel. In the meantime cooking and baking is always looking for new twists on cornflake-chicken recipes!

10. Thank you. I believe I have the Great Balls of Steel..

 

forged in far less moderated forums.

I actually have cornflake fried chicken recipes, but I sense something else going on here...

7. One thing I've noticed about Americans interacting in online environments:

they tend to presume that everyone else is an American and a native English speaker. This may have something to do with the fact that Americans are the most insular people in the developed world. (One hears the British described as "insular"; I've lived in the UK for several years, and I can tell you that they have nothing on Americans.)

Don't sweat the semantics, its the heart that counts.

11. I wish you peace, Dark Angel. I hope you get a good night's sleep.

Things will get better, but it'll help if you treat yourself to a nice cup of tea and few hours of blissful shut-eye.
