Re: Children's International Summer Village

Maximillion:

Looks like you campaigning for "rookie troll of the year". Why don't you post something about yourself and desire for financial independence or are you going to burn out after a couple days?

Re: Children's International Summer Village

maddy, not a rookie, I retired Full Time at 54, Money is not, nor has ever been a problem, I just reacted to an inane response to a serious question, but if you guys are at that level, so be it.

I was disappointed this thread degenerated into school girl giggling, seems a little cliquy here??

Interesting web site I must say.

As to the reaction so far to a serious topic I must say it is juvenile.

So the lesson to be learnt is that if one is going to introduce a serious topic then one must refrain from attempting any humour however awful.Maybe Maximillion you have touched a sensitive nerve with your irreverent reference to shooting?

I shall watch this thread with interest to see what develops.

Max, I think your statement might be taken more seriously if it wasn't such a broad condemnation generalization; i.e. I don't believe most Merkins are out to shoot "foreigners"...

Neither do I.

Perhaps some might wish to look at the site as I just did.

Maybe some here might learn a thing or two and also manage not to be so bloody thin skinned?

Womens pubic hair wigs?

Hey Mike...its common for new people to declare themselves in "Hi I am..." or at least have some sort of introductory post where they swear off their long term lurking or some such. When someone just fires off a first post, replete with a finishing paragraph that may be interpreted humorously or not, given that 90% of the time people get your meaning wrong...I guess some scathing could be expected. Especially when the facilities to put a smile or wink on the end of a bit of sarcasm exists.

It seems our Maxy lacks either a certain social grace or the knowledge of how to soften his posts by using emot-icons.

But I'm not going to defend him. Last two people I defended, publicly and privately, were ***** and JG. Look how that turned out.

CFB, No point in responding.

A serious post is made, the response is to teach children to kill, you find that humerous, no smiley faces , ridiculous statement.

Re: Children's International Summer Village

Oh. You were serious. That solves that question then.

If there was no point in responding, then why did you?

Have a nice life Maxy.

I'd say you are batting .500. Think of all the hours of free entertainment JG has provided us. Plus where else would we get such a clear view into the mind of the trailerpark republican?

I don't know what you were thinking when you leaped to *****'s defense. After-effect of the insomnia medication? (Not that I don't have my own frequent lapses of judgement).

Re: Children's International Summer Village

Eh, he told me he was an alcoholic and was recovering. He also seems sort of reasonable and a sorry sort at first. Not to mention that I had no history or knowledge of his past travesties. Couldnt understand the venom pointed at him.

I think the batting average is good. I dont find that branch that keeps hitting the gutter on the side of the house every time the wind blows to be entertaining.

Venom is about the least of the things most of us would like to point at him. I don't think I have ever run across a more manipulative, odious weasel in my life.

See, the flaw in your logic is the assumption that Maximillion, mike-1, and Howard are all different people...

Well I can only speak for mike and I sure ain't Maximillion or Howard. For the record I find myself in agreement with Maximillion on this issue. I am also very familiar with his blunt style. Have been since 1998 on other boards. You lot will just have to learn to get used to him.
