    The guy using that term knew it was racist...

    It is quite nowadays an obscure cultural reference.

    After that, we can bring on the old Political Correctness has gone too far debate on again...

    It reminds me of the Young Tory student leader using the term Sonderkommando and complaining being sacked over it...

    It will teach him being an ignorant pick in the first place..

    Calibri is a great screen font.

    Times looks good printed and works well for paragraphs but it is an awful screen font and it is no good for number filled charts and tables... therefore it is a terrible excel default.

    I might understand if you were talking about the word default...

    You are never niggardly to insult conservative politicians.

    You dodged the question. And I'd be shocked if most people did not agree with me, most of your posts are painful to read. Half the time it's vacuous content, and almost always terrible composition and style. I just can't stand your posts.

    Sure I don't need to read them, but maybe a little honesty will get you to post betterly.

    I can't quite put my finger on it, but for some reason your post reminds me of that time when I had ten thousand spoons at my disposal, but all I needed was one goddamn knife!

    I hate to break it to you, but you aren't making any sense.

    L'inc's posts are some of my favorite, and often very funny (serious response).

    Okay, real talk: you might have noticed that I have friendly relations with pretty nearly everyone I communicate with on the forum. (I am also friends with a fair number of SF people off the forum.) You also may have noticed that my posts often get a few thumbs up. That should provide a clue: perhaps my posts are good, and perhaps you are just incapable of recognizing what is good about them.

    Also, my previous post about the knives and spoons did indeed make sense. Sometimes people express their ideas indirectly (technique of literature).

    He is one of my favorite SF posters. Any fan of Jack Handey appreciates L'Inc.

    I've heard people refer to black people as Mondays.


    X2 on Times New Roman. It is the best font and least likely to embarrassment. Calibria looks like it was designed by the same asshole who made Comic Sans.

    And L'inc is one of the best posters on the board. Yuppie head is just "Doesn't Get the Bit Guy."

    I always read links parentetical statements in a really dry tone. Much in the the way Ben stein would say them.

    I think you guys who like Times New Roman are the same people who long for the days when people used manual typewriters

    I, for one, do not agree with you.

    The ignore button may be used for posters with whom you are not enamored. (sorry for the subjunctive mood, I know Strunk and White frown (frowns?) upon this.) (sorry also for nested parentheticals) <-should there be a period in that second parenthetical there?

    Shit, should "should" [provisional sic] have been capitalized?

    shit, douglas's computer caught the Pluperfect virus.

    also, L'inc is one of the best posters on the entire interwebz.

    L'inc is well versed in the subtle humors. Betimes he will use the callback to bring the jokes, so you will need to be an avid reader to enjoy.

    Be warned though - I tried to put L'inc on ignore once and he started communicating (posting) to me in my dreams. It's not that easy to quit him

    Be surprised. Most people (myself included) strongly disagree and greatly enjoy Dr. Lee's posts.

    Sure, it doesn't matter what you think, but maybe a little honesty will get you to stop acting like a dick.

    Btw I got confused by the earlier discussion of Atlanta as a "major city". I have always thought that "Atlanta" referred to the airport and maybe a couple of houses where the TSA agents all lived. It seems that you guys are saying that there is more to it than that?? :confused:
