    I'm glad to see the idiots on TSR are getting banned/banned, such as Cephalus and Chancellor.
    Why have you said 'banned/banned'?

    Sorry I was just being frivolously unhelpful. Would be nice if it was a joke though.

    "I'm glad to see the idiots on TSR are getting banned/banned"

    the idiots on TSR are: "getting banned" or "banned"

    "getting banned" infers that they are in the process of being banned, such as you, my dear Cephalus. It is the progressive form of a verb, where the action has not been completed.

    "are banned" infers that they have been banned already, such as jolly old Chancellor. The action is complete.

    This is your mistake. The action will never be completed.

    Oh, so it was "getting banned"/"banned". I look forward to more confusing language from you in future. Keep it up. :yy:

    That is certainly debatable, and irrelevant in the case of you. I was not arguing that you will be banned, but saying that you were in the process of being banned. The mistake lies with you, who did not read my post correctly, made a mockery of me based on that misunderstanding, and now furthering your inaccuracies by misinterpreting what I am saying about you, is that the action of you being banned is in the process of being banned. That does not seal that you will be banned, and nor am I implying it. I'm hoping.

    No the mistake is when you said I am in the process of being banned. I am not.

    I've gone legit.

    If you actually read my comment instead of guffawing with some dunce you wouldn't be so fuddled.

    It is a shame you support the Green Party as I do, but I suppose there are fools in every political party.

    Hope you will forgive me.

    I'm "trying hard to make my point" because thus far, my point has been ill received on account of no fault of my own.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "butthurt", perhaps some internet jargon for grievance of the past. If I remember rightly, I pointed out that you had some very twisted views, and since then, you wish to be seen as "legit". I don't think grievances lie with me.

    SherlockH, you need to chill. I think you should step away from your computer :zomg:

    Yes you did point that out, then I recall some people of the thread turning on you :gasp:

    You have a tendency (like me I admit) to insult people you don't know very well (as shown by your treatment of Miser in this thread, who didn't really do anything wrong).

    Day 12 atm... flat lined for the past couple of days, but all of a sudden all the temptation has been rushing back today, gah...
    Flatline during abstinence is the single defining characteristic of porn addiction... soz bro. (given no depression etc)

    People who just abstain for the hell of it end up wanting to **** the sky after a few weeks. Addicts flatline.

    Interesting thread.
    Not in though.
