And try rolling your eyes at people from Latin America. Not that you'd realise they are people, but still.

Wow! Big time!

I only lived there for a year, admittedly. I do realise that 'preppy' is now as mainstream and common as it gets, if that's what you're getting at (though I suspect that you're just annoyed by the leftish snark). But Allen is in his seventies.

Incidentally, 'America' is a continent.

Which means you should just stop posting now and stop making a fool out of yourself.

Sorry you lost that last argument so badly but it was a stupid one for you to start in the first place. Don't be bitter about it.

And radicaldog, you're usually not this much of an asshole but when you swing low, it's not pretty. (George OTOH is a prick most of the time.) Seriously, you appear to know nothing about the northeast, nothing about American (OMG he did it again!) bankers, and nothing about preppies. The more you post, the more you make that clear.
oh dear.

You certainly are. You must enjoy it or you wouldn't indulge so consistently.

And "George" on SF is only one-tenth the prick of "formby" on FNB, who is a very high caliber example of nasty junior high girl.

Nothing to bitter about, I saw it as a difference of opinion not a points scoring exercise.

Hilarious. Anyway, if you are not bitter, why not cool it with the stalking?

Re-read you posts in this thread again. Self-awareness isn't really your strongpoint is it.

Yes, Woody's wife before his current wife.

Any weapon at hand boys, any weapon at hand.

And radicaldog, you're usually not this much of an asshole but when you swing low, it's not pretty. (George OTOH is a prick most of the time.) Seriously, you appear to know nothing about the northeast, nothing about American (OMG he did it again!) bankers, and nothing about preppies. The more you post, the more you make that clear.

Yes, the n-word has also been used for centuries to refer to African Americans. I have no problem with the adjective 'American' (anything else is too contrived and long-winded), but the noun 'America' always makes me think of the ugliest manifestations of bigoted US patriotism. Perhaps it's just an idiosyncrasy of mine, though I do have Argentinian friends who complain about the common usage of 'America' to refer to the US.

As for being an asshole, I admit that I'm in a bad mood tonight. But seriously, you started it with a one-line post that was dismissively condescending. I also find it quite annoying that you routinely fail to address the main points raised in reply to you, and choose to concentrate on details in order to come up with more insults. I suppose that's the bread and butter of your profession (you're a propagandist of sorts, aren't you?); mine (academia) doesn't work like that.

Finally, I certainly know less that you about American banksters and preppies (and I'm glad of that). But that's beside the point: my initial claim, properly understood (remember: this is a clothing forum), is that the use of preppy clothing can create a look that is associated with the traditional image of Eastern WASP elites etc.

This is always your tactic of first resort.

OK, radicaldog, who is mostly a reasonabe person, made a stupid, innaccurate comment influenced by his leftist politics. I pointed out that it was wrong. He immediately went on the attack, in a particularly stupid way. You swooped in to validate him. I pointed out the inadequacy of your responses. He called me a Nazi and you got personal.

You start or pile on a lot of silly fights and then blame the person you are punching in the face. It's a pattern for you. That is but one reason why I say you are a prick.

Are you fucking kidding? So now referring to the USA as "America" = calling black people n!gg3rs? Really?

You are seriously coming off like a total fool.

Stalking? I'd posted in thread before you, I saw your post, thought it was a bit heavy handed, so I thought I'd tease you. Haven't we been here before? The Harvard thread IIRC?
