    what does that make "a pale imitation at best"?

    What hath I for thee? Why disdain, slight regard and anything that doth not ill-become the sender.

    :eyebrow: "a pale imitation at best" is a disaster at worst and a mockery to say the least.

    BAT(inna belfry) MAESTROSON seemed to feel he had maestroed the art of kung-fuqua, my commentary was to the effect that his attempts were laughably weak and witless.

    Part the second is a mangleation of one of my favorite quotes from HENRY V. When a messenger from Henry delivers his terms to the French forces, the Dauphin (a former companion of Henry in their younger days) asks if the messenger has any message for him...

    D:What hath Henry for the Dauphin?
    M: For the Dauphin?
    D: Yes.
    M: Why he hath disdain, slight regard and anything that doth not ill-become the sender.

    Meaning should be pretty clear. Passive/aggressive is for chumps.

    Too bad... just goes to show once again that age doesn't mean maturity. AFAICT, There's wasn't anything worth getting argumentative about in the first place except that MYTROLLs ego got deflated. :rolleyes:

    I'm a little worried about you, 'stro. Those last coupla posts were sounding a little like "Flowers For Algernon".

    Methinks you were probably just indulging in some crank yankin'. Back to the shed, now.

    I wonder if he can post anymore. His sub-title/heading thing on his profile says "banned". Mayhaps our dear STRO got the axe?

    I'm guessing DURRL changes enough diapers at home without having to do it here.

    Banned...I've done the same with the brat from across the street. Life's much better now.

  11. Boy. Take a little vacation and miss everything. So I gather the guy who publicly villified me and then destroyed the evidence when he got caught is banned? While you're at it, ban Hardy, his invisible friend. (my daughter had one when she was 4.)

  15. There've been 'time-outs' awarded here before, perhaps My Stroh's ban is only temporary?
    Like, till he goes back on his medication.
