Afraid you've misinterpreted me there. My wording could have been clearer. I wasn't implying you were a 'gammon'. I was saying that 'snowflake' is a term used by 'gammon' and I didn't think you'd fall into using 'snowflake'. I wasn't calling you a 'gammon', honest, guvnor.
Prior to "serious discussion section" of the forum merging with "non-Queen entertainment" one, I hardly ever stepped into these threads after around 2007 because I didn't want to fall into those arguments anymore. So if you're assuming I'm one of those people, then sorry, but I've not done that to you on here for at least a decade, and back then I was even more arrogant and annoying than I am now.fairydandy wrote: ↑Wed Jul 29, 2020 3:40 pmJust to be clear, the only 'game' in this thread from me was saying that I wouldn't wear a mask in the shops, when I already had done. Everything else I said was real opinion. Those opinions won't be accepted of course, because as I have said, there is no tolerance on QOL for differing views. Its all mainstream opinion on here, or at least majority opinion that matters, despite people having some pseudo-tolerances for just about anyone who differs.
I genuinely believe that there were - and are - lots of intelligent people who voted for Brexit for rational, sensible reasons that should have been more articulately discussed in the media. I also know that their rational voices were drowned out by xenophobic idiots who hopped on the Brexit bandwagon and turned it into the tribal war that it became.
Personally, I think we were better off in the EU. It wasn't a perfect relationship but it seems to have been the better of two evils, and I'm still a little sad to think that all the warning signs about Brexit seemed to be proving to be true (at least until Covid threw a spanner in the works, making it almost impossible to make sense of anything!). And at the time, I was definitely angry with people who couldn't articulate WHY they supported Brexit other than saying they did... I wanted rational arguments, and I got uncertainty. But that doesn't mean they weren't there.
Regardless, this is a massive side-step... the thing I can't get my head around is this kind of thing:
That's irrational, troll-like behaviour that I really didn't expect of you. Trying to incite arguments... I can't work out if you're just bored or actually enjoy all this.fairydandy wrote: ↑Tue Jul 28, 2020 11:39 pmI used that term deliberately so that you could carry on stereotyping, as you all do. I knew that it would cause a reaction, just as all of my deliberate posts in this thread have done.
It's like touching the blue touch paper and watching the fireworks go off. I give you all what you all think of me, so it's quite funny. It couldn't be further from the truth, but it makes you all feel better.
The only one who is angry is you. Still if I was your age and had been stuck indoors since March, I think I would be angry. Some of us kept working and paying taxes.
And I maintain that to insinuate some kind of superiority over me because you thought from my posts I'd not been "working and paying taxes" was downright fucking petty, and a bit shitty towards anyone who HAS been furloughed or made redundant as a result of this crisis. When I told you that wasn't the case for me and I'd been busier than ever before, you just moved onto your next line. But that's fine - those taxes you pay go towards my wage every month, and the work we actually do all day, so cheers for that!
I'm genuinely over this now. I'm not angry or getting worked up about it. I just think it's all rather ridiculous, and a little sad that someone who is a genuinely nice person going into Troll Mode because of some perceived victimisation you've apparently received. All these years and QOL hasn't changed a sodding bit, has it?
