So I'm unblocked and we're talking again?
Right this moment, we're talking. Beyond that...why do you keep acting like the following is mysterious to you?
That second line does something when you click it.
Sometimes I get curious and look. I just dealt with someone going on about how they're so brave
as to make a post in favor of gun control on a thoroughly pro-gun control forum, (ETA: Oh, and then a PETA supporter) so I'm probably just in the mood for a slightly different variety of stupid shit.
Well, I've never ignored anyone on this forum, so I've never seen that. Dunno what to tell you, I'm a pleb and not a tier 1 Internet Operator. That's probably not a surprise to anyone.
I have refrained mentioning you, actively engaging with posts you make, or responding to you directly because I thought that was what we had agreed to, for my part because you have made it very clear that you blocked me, and that you detest me, that I pestered you with unwanted communications, and that you have no interest in what I say.
I would like you to
A) continue to not interact with me, (and I'll continue to do the same)
B) agree that we will engage as members here in some kind of good faith.
C) loudly say you want nothing to do with me, that I'm blocked etc. then drop in and snipe with insults.
I know that I posted something that was rude in response to Mo.
It strikes me that you picked the post where I apologized to him and admitted that he had a point, and that I needed to reconsider, to make your comment. If we had any relationship on this board besides a kind of de facto enmity, I could think that you were busting my balls, but this clearly isn't that. I'm trying really hard to be level about this man, especially because I feel bad about what I just said upthread, unthinking, uncritical, rude. But when you act like this it really doesn't help anyone, and makes it extremely hard to do anything but flame each other.
100%, I really don't like some of the things I've fought over in the past, and I'm disgusted now by the feelings of righteous anger over shit, and I'm trying to hold myself to higher standards. But you and I are locked into this thing we can't get past and I hate it. I'd rather we find some way to get along, but I'll take mutual silence if that's the only way to not have this tension and bad blood.
