Entirely possible! And that means I still don't get it.

You have exactly as much right to tell me to do this as I would have to tell you- your involvement here has been limited to telling others how best to behave. Which makes you a hypocrite on top of being a bore.
You don't read posts very carefully, do you?

In fairness to Orincoro, I had to read your post twice when I first saw it before I could properly parse it.

Edit for the sake of clarity: Orincoro, what Stone Wolf was trying to say was that he was going to butt out because he knows he doesn't like you, the same way he felt Sam should have done. He wasn't telling you to butt out, even though it did kinda look that way at first glance. [Smile]

Yes, in fairness to me, even a close reading of such a post offers an ambiguous meaning. On top of that, you have Blyane bragging on Sake about you taking his side, which would suggest he read it similarly.

And I know Dan saw that one as well, and didn't offer a clarification.

It took me a few readings to extract the intended meaning as well, for whatever it's worth.

Happy to clarify.

Orinicoro, I'm going to butt out, as Samp should have in the first place with Blayne, as he obviously doesn't like him, as I don't like you.

History of the US. Marines, from their webpage:

quote:


SEVENTEEN SEVENTIES

A committee of the Continental Congress met at Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, PA, to draft a resolution calling for two battalions of Marines able to fight for independence at sea and on shore. November 10, 1775, the Marine Corps was born.

1st Commandant: Major Samuel Nicholas (1775-1783)

2012-1775=237 years. That is more than 100 years, or more than one century. Hence Centuries.

A dare you to tell a US Marine that they have not been around for over 200 years.

If that's a question to me, I was just expressing my amusement at Blayne rapidly following your prediction of him descending into crudity with the post that became
