Stop passing on the blame to some poor radio station and take your pwning like a man.

I did read the first post. I did not, however, hear the radio report, therefore, I can only address the author of the post.

Well, I suggest you go to wsbradio.com and take it up with the Neal Boortz show. Since you seem to be so concerned about it.

I have reseasrched the news story and realize I passed on the mistaken news cast. I don't think I was pwned though.

The problem there, of course, is that if I contact them based on your accounting of the broadcast, which is all I have to go on, I could end up passing on erroneous claims, which would, of course, land me in a bit of a hypocritical situation.

It seems, in the end, that contacting wsbradio.com would be something you might consider, since their report caused you to not only post erroneous information, but to vigorously defend their mistakes when someone with the correct information attempted to share it with you.

I would like to thank you for nitpicking everybody elses posts and bringing another thread to a screaching halt. The topic of the thread was that an airport was issuing applications in braille, which could have led to an interesting discussion whether it was in Italy or Scilly, or Sicily or China for that matter. Once again your need to correct everybody has ruined another discussion.

You'll find that the hostility of the thread starter towards another poster that simply offered more information inspired me to have some fun with him.

Also, I'm not sure how my handful of posts prevented anyone else from speaking on topic. Is it possible that there was no one looking to have this hypothetical discussion?

Although, since you have been unable to manage an on-topic post, but rather, only to scold me here in the thread as opposed to a PM, I suppose it's possible that I do have some sort of power over the course discussions take. I promise to be more careful in the future as I try to understand my new found ability.

Oh, and thanks for the neg rep. Much obliged.

Do you choose to correct people in a PM?

No, you attempt to make fools of others in your posts. Don't try and stand on a soap box now and expect consideration.

By the way, I didn't give you a neg rep. I would have signed my name to it.

No, but I don't expect you to correct facts in a PM either. Publicly lecturing people on how they post within the ToS, however, is another story.

Don't be silly. The thread starter made a fool of himself the moment he responded with venom to Xitup's informative post. You may be right about other instances, though. I'll consider the merit of any example you have in mind.

However, looking over this thread, I'm not sure why I'm the one being cornered.

Provided a verifiable source for the original unsupported claim, check:
http://www.mmaforum.com/608238-post5.html

Provided an alternative link for discussion that more closely fit the thread starter's intent, check:
http://www.mmaforum.com/608538-post8.html

Offered sound advice to a hostile poster without resorting to insults, check.
http://www.mmaforum.com/609228-post14.html


Oh, and have you visited the 'Rampage arrested' thread today?
http://www.mmaforum.com/ufc/40131-ra...-beach-ca.html

You'll find that in there, I was the first (even before the news sites) to come up with the original local news report. I also calmed some wild-eyed posters who assumed that news sites were stealing the thread starter's photos, rather than purchasing them. Those posters, by the way, were posting libelous claims on high profile media outlets and linking back to mmaforum, but my posts helped them realize there error.
http://photos.tmz.com/galleries/rampage_arrested

Seems like I should be up for a mod position, no?

It also seems like I should be getting more work done at work, but that's another issue.

Fair enough. It had some weight behind it and showed up at around the same time your admonishment did, so I played the odds. Want to take a bet on zzztigerzz81?

I don't use neg rep, personally. I've been known to hand out the green stuff on occasion, though.

jasvll, come on man, you know you nitpick people.

I was wrong for singling you out in this thread so for that I'm sorry. I should have pointed out everybody, not just you.

You make plenty of good posts on this forum so I'm not saying that your a turd. In fact you're one of the most intelligent people on this forum in my opinion,you just have an argumentative nitpicky side that comes out sometimes and you get into these bickering sessions over small issues. You know thats true so just admit to it.

Let the record show that I never denied any nitpickiness on my part and in fact, admit to thriving on it.

That being said, I think I have my condition under control for the most part, reserving the particularly pedantic stuff for those that are asking for it.

So, about those blind, Italian homosexuals applying for air traffic controller positions in the British Isles?
