Both are good shots, but that left one has me laughing; were you making noises to get the "quizzical" look?

No noise, he just wondered what the hell was I holding to my face?

Not only does he have great markings on his face, but he leaves great markings on your windows too.

I had a pure-bred shepherd 20 years ago with similar markings. I picked him out more for that than the fact that he was by far the largest pup in the litter. I miss him.

Trolling brings out a variety of responses.

Would I have used FTL's approach? NO

But then again, I would not have used Greg's approach, stirring trouble intentionally or not. It goes back to Newton's Third Law.

Why is it you and your type have a hard time answering simple questions? In your case it would appear that you have a simple mind, so it shouldn't be all that hard.....
I'm sorry, are we in R170 or OT?

After all, is it not clear at this point that one of the largest discrete groups of pedophiles appear to be catholic priests, who are then protected by their diocese, etc. and shipped off somewhere else (at least to the extent they may be considered conservative)??

Rather than pure BS, the thread title was pure inadvertence. Had I not read DP's post like five minutes before stumbling across the article, the title would have been more like "Turns out Some of the Worst Internet Sleaze Emanates from US Servers".

I meant the title as rhetoric; in other words, of COURSE you don't need to be conservative, it was a tied-in-jest reference to DP's thread (I almost posted it in there to begin with).

Apparently it was not read that way at least by some, and to those who were truly offended, you have my sincere apologies. I can now appreciate that some might have (and apparently did) read that way, and all I can tell you is that I surely was not thinking that when I posted it.

I don't take cheap shots at people and every one of you know that as well.
No need to apologize here. I went back, reread everything and can see the juxtaposition that was intended. I think it was not read as the twist was intended in a sea of conservative/liberal threads that don't have that same potential play of words.

In an extreme analogy, you were the guy who lit the match to see what that gas smell was while everyone else was looking both ways for an arsonist. It was going to get attention.

It was a good troll, whether intentional or not. Maybe that was enough. But you don't have anything to apologize for. You use correct syntax and spelling.

Now, if you were a troll running on simple impulse power only...
