This was your whole post.

Sorry, I don't have a Kansan-to-English dictionary that defines "Splat", but I'm sure if I did, it would say "symbolic of an appreciation for one's conservatism, but not necessarily of the subject themselves."

Oh, for the record, "I really like him" is actually four words. Perhaps you were thinking of 2^2, or 2x2, or 2+2. All the same, really.

A hit, a very palpable hit.

Is there really any need for that?

Yes, let's look at post #6.

Please explain to me how either this statement, or the one before it, indicates that A) you dislike the man, but B) like the fact that he's a conservative.


...


Oh, wait....I'm supposed to reverse everything you say. Is that it? I'm supposed to reverse everything you say?

Because that's what you're advocating.

In short, I think, the math should go like this:

* "I like him" = "I'm hardly "defending" him. I would just stay out of his way. He is a bit crazy..."

and

* "He may be conservative, but he likes to kick the shit out of people." = "I was saying I liked his conservativism--not him personally"


This type of miscommunication would explain a lot of why you're misunderstood so frequently. My apologies for getting it wrong all this time.

Following your lead QBN, what Jaybaugh meant with this post is:

"What a fucking asshole" = "I lust after your asshole", and

"See post #6" = "Don't bother to read anything I post."

Thanks for the tutorial, I think I have the hang of it now. Jim

I'm proud to have played a seminal role in sending this thread spiraling out of control. My work here is done.

Are you referring to your seminal vesicles? If so here is what they look like...

A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his seminal vesicles with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

In fact, I kinda like Bonaduce myself.
