    To you it may have been obvious. But in the lifeless web it is not. We cover many age goups , many levels of comprehension, and many languages. In the cold translation all that is seen is the words. No emotion , no feeling.

    The use of smilies go some way to help this.

    Sometimes things are just better unsaid.

    i'm even less animated in person.

    so jail the post, then. unless you think i'm lying, my intent was not what you'd mistaken it to be. why give me some permanent punishment over a misunderstanding of intent? if the post is so objectionable, why is it still there? just get rid of it. that's something i definitely don't get.

    maybe that's the key, though. this place and me is probably no longer a good fit. might just be better to part ways?

    I'm going to reverse the infraction, but Fuscia you have tested the limits of what is good taste and proper on the forums many times in the past. Maybe you are right, maybe the Ubuntu Forums is not the place for you.

    Yeah, although I don't like saying it, I agree.

    Fuscia, you do push the limits. Often when doing so you have made me laugh, sometimes really hard. Then, other times, you have created a flurry of post reports (probably without knowing it, but nonetheless). You have a great sense of humor. It is sometimes quirky, and it is definitely unique. Great senses of humor are not always appropriate. It depends on the location in which they are displayed as to how comments will be reacted to.

    a flurry of post reports? i had no idea. anyway, ubuntu forums has become far more conservative since i first joined. for me, it's too conservative and it's time for this poster to move on. no hard feelings and best of luck to all.
