LOL. I recall Poly recently lauding km for "taking it on the chin." But this thread reminds me of a line — and I can't remember if it was Peter Sellers or Victor Borge — who told of being in a boxing match, and expertly blocking every one of his opponent's blows with the point of his chin!
That fact that KM never reverts to personal attack while taking it on the chin day after day in the soapbox and then he even gets smacked around out here and still does not break stride is admirable.
Um... my memory is quite in tact, thank you. But, "as usual", you've cherry picked the words from elsewhere in that post that better suit whatever point you want to make.
I look at that post from Poly and I think, Ok, there's some truth there. Maybe a bit reactionary, but not the least accurate observation I've ever seen. Then I look at this thread and think, Well if "infantile" is true, then the whole nursery can't be wrong!
Honestly km, for once admit you stepped in a bit of poo and move on.
you've cherry picked the words from elsewhere in that post that better suit whatever point you want to make.
Actually I didn't cherry pick anything... I just didn't have time to read the entire post because I was trying to get out through the door to get to work - so I apologise for the mistake... although I still think he was right to call you on 'infantile'.
I'm joking km, chillax. I only speak to 3 native speakers of English on a daily basis and two of them are from England. I do things "on" the weekend, they do things "at" the weekend, etc. and it all works out tickityboo (or however you spell it).

Yeah, you're right, sorry... the trouble is, and I'm dead serious about this, I don't always know whether I'm talking to a man or a woman - which doesn't usually matter... until you get to idioms involving knickers!
