jojomfd1: You're right. I'm a fool, and your post more than any other pointed this out to me. No more excuses or trying to explain it away. The remark was sexist. It has no place here, and I sincerely apologize for making it. Thank you for bringing me back to reality. THX-1138: I will take your advice and take some time off the site. Read but not respond. hopefully some self imposed exile will help those I offended find peace and forgive (and forget) my ignorance. yerfatma: I'm kinda slow so if you don't spell it out for me, I don't get it. Nobody likes to be taken out of their comfort zone. At first I resisted but after some reflection I realized I was wrong. So once again, to all who took offense, please accept my apology.

THX-1138, What is it? I'm not being serious enough, so people take me seriously or is it my jokes are so bad people think I can't be joking so I must be serious?

So was this.

My original point, "posted by canstusdis at 7:22 PM CST on January 7", was made to point out the absurdity of the media(and many of the fans) about this Romo/Jessica thing. It was a joke, sarcasm. So was the Rocky post. (wasn't that one kinda funny? No? ok...)

dude, uh, I think you made my point...

So, your accusing me of "...suggesting the only possible value Jessica Simpson could have is a magic vagina...". Absurd. I was suggesting(tongue in cheek)that a rendezvous with Jessica Simpson in Mexico a week before the big game seemed unwise to many Cowboy fans. I even posted a link in support of that. The word gold in my quote suggests the color of, not the composition of the "kitty", suggesting that many men prefer a "true blonde". I tried to clear that up with you in other posts but all I ever got from you was silence, or an ever increasing hostile and mean spirited response. that's why I didn't think e-mailing you would do any good. You would either not respond at all, like you have in the some of these threads, or you would continue to bash me over the head, like you did here. I'm sorry that you misconstrued my original post. I was trying to be funny. I admit(and have admitted in other posts) that most of the time I'm not. I'm also sorry for not making my meaning clear. I should have said, "She must have a blonde pussy..." instead of trying to be subtle. But what I'm mostly sorry for is that you felt like you had to lash out at me instead of directly confronting me, like That's not cool, canstusdis. posted by jerseygirl at 9:47 AM CST on January 23 Then I would have asked, "what's not cool?" And you could have asked, "What did you mean by that?" And then waited for my answer before you decided to launch your assault. After all, This isn't 'Nam dude. There are rules. posted by lilnemo at 5:44 PM CST on January 23 And I've tried to follow the rules. But if you're a vet you don't have to follow them? If you're a vet you can beat down and yell over the noob if you don't like what they said or the way they said it, even if you didn't understand what they were trying to say? I realize this is only the four or five hundredth time you've brought this single incident up to demand justice because you were brutally assaulted, but let's have this be the last one. Yes, this will be the last one. You can choose hate, or you can choose dialogue. It's up to you.

[noob] Good: I agree with THX-1138. To read the amazing, fascinating, mundane, outlandish, informative, and sometimes shocking news about sports from around the world. THIS is where I get my edification and use as a resource when forming my sports-related opinion. Bad: Getting keyboard thrashed. Romo, what the hell were you thinking? Her kitty must be made of gold... posted by canstusdis at 7:22 PM CST on January 7 Save the anti-woman hysteria for someone who does irony with a bit of funny. posted by yerfatma at 5:15 AM CST on January 8 I still don't know what that was all about. Maybe yerfatma will explain herself without attacking my manhood.
