I gotta point that I never directed that one at you. It was Jex who assumed I was aiming at you while it could as well be directed to him.
True is, I don't like when people point out at others grammar at forums because it would be like if you cut someone in the middle of sentence just to point out that his sentence isn't grammatically correct, in other words - rude. However, it could hardly apply to your earlier post because it was, after all, in joking manner.
I just used it as excuse because my earlier attempt to hint that I didn't like your joke failed, so I tried another way. And I never seriously attempted to edit any post.
Mcduffies, I've never kicked you in the nuts with the express intention of pissing you off. In fact, I've always chuckled when I find a reason to kick you in the nuts in the forum, and figured that you chuckled about it too.
The time you're talking about saying I went over the line was when a comic was posted with your character sitting in an advice booth ala "Peanuts", and I commented something was wrong about the picture, since you weren't bent over holding your crotch. Your response was something on par of "some people are mature enough to not need to put that joke into each strip I'm in."
You don't comment when other people kick you in the nuts - or draw your character bent over holding his crotch. I admit I do use this joke more often than others, but if you were really upset about the joke, you'd have said something to everyone, not just to me. So when you didn't call out anyone else, but poked back at me, I just figured you were playing along and having a good time of it.
Well, Rkolter, first of all, I don't have a bad opinion on you, nor I single you out of the crowd. In fact I think you're really a good guy. So I never wanted to single your jokes out of others, in fact I don't think that earlier comment with the booth was directed your way - maybe you were just in wrong place, caught between "fires" (and I think it was something like "some people remember other jokes about me besides that one" with so use of word "immature")
I'll comment on anyone kicking me in the croch if I think joke is tasteless or not funny or demeaning (rather than insulting) and sometimes I just swallow it because, addmitedly, if I accept the joke on me I have to bear with it and if there's a funny joke around, well no reason spoiling it.
I guess I'll close by saying that you can't honestly say you take a self depreciating joke better than me, and I'm a bit disappointed that you'd resort to insulting me personally and threatening to abuse your mod powers, when all you had to say was, "C'mon already, this joke is getting old and I'm not having fun with it anymore." I really am a decent human being - if you'd asked me to stop before now, I would have.
But I relay on ones tact to stop the joke when it's old and not fun anymore - I didn't think that was unreasonable to expect from grown-up people (just for the record, I'm not implying that you're not grown-up or acting like one or anything that someone could read my words into). In addition, you said you noticed that I wasn't always comfortable with that joke. Yet you didn't stop to think about any of that.
Ok, maybe it was my fault, maybe posts like "*doesn't say anything*" aren't a hint enough that I'm not comfortable. Also, maybe I let the joke go too far, maybe I shouldn't have kept bringing it myself too. I mean, some moments of it were priceless, like Bob's musicle or Mooman's animation. But joke was old and tired much earlier for me than for anybody else (so it seems so). At one moment here, noone was mentioning me in any other context, which made me feel really bad - "is the stupid kick-in-the-crotch joke the only impression I made as person?" Still, as always, I like to accept anything that's funny.
Ah, never mind. I sincirely apologuise to everyone although I never did and never will intend to abose mod status. Let's just forget about this.
