    It looks like someone took offense to my posts in the "Greatest Book" thread. Sorry about that. I didn't put in any smilies because I thought it was pretty evident that I didn't decide the eternal resting places of men's souls....I guess it wasn't as evident as I thought.

    Sorry about that. I hate you all ( ;) <----Just in case someone thinks I really hate everyone.)

    Wow, since you had no avatar, I didn't even read what you said. Did you say something offensive?

    :spit: ;) :p

    I didn't think I did, but I have a tendency to offend people without meaning to. Really, I do apologize about that. I didn't mean to piss people off.

    And about the no avatar thing - I keep forgetting to mail in my check to Paul to renew, but it seems that my offense was might have been a good thing that I didn't mail it in yet :meh: Let's hope not.

    Man I thought it was closed because of my zinger on Brian (nonsqtr).

    Well - I know you meant it as a joke bassturtle and I thought it was bloody funny. You should read what we are saying about you in TPA :D

    It's not up to us to forgive you.

    You must look to a higher authority...

    ...not that high...the Mods.

    I thought that was great! Everyone knows that Brian's posts are way more thought out and consequently longer than the rest of ours. It makes him an easy target :D

    It seemed obvious to me. However, much like the fate of men's souls, it doesn't matter what I think.

    Dang you, Aussie! I'll have my day! Mark my words!

    I set a Squire P Bass on fire in an attempt to appease the Mods. Hopefully my prayers and supplication were heard.

    I don't care about a higher authority. They'll do what they want to do anyway (zing-zing-zing). :D

    I posted my reply in TPA - where the rules are more permissive, and I can get away with murder, bassturtle, are you hearing me?


    (Bassturtle, you really need to get your avatar back, I can't figure out who you are without it). :D:D:D

    (ps. - I just set an old Mosrite on fire last night - that was worth a dozen Fender's :D:D:D)

    1/50 of a $1000 bass, or 20 $1 basses.
  14. An absolutely PERFECT (and brilliantly timed, as it turns out,) example of why the "Emoticons" are so VITAL ("negative" ones especially).

    Without them, each and every post is much more open to misinterpretation than would otherwise be the case.

    He forgot to place a "joke" smiley in a joke post, which resulted in other people taking it serious etc etc. It was about the Bible so that didn't help either.

    I thought it was because I compared Nonsqtr's post to the bible, noting that the only difference was, the bible's a quicker read. I thought it was OK to offend Christians on TB, but you CAN'T OFFEND NONSQTR! :D

    Offending almost anybody on TB is a no-no :p
