Subject: RE: BS: Boxing; cruel, primitive & nauseating
Gnu, Where did I call anyone on this forum a "prissy brit?"
You also seem to be under the impression that I am fighting with John MacKenzie. I am simply talking to him as he talked to you and me and everyone else on the Boxing threads. But I am doing so frankly.
In fact I was careful not to talk specifically about any individual.
Even if I did, refer specifically to some other person, it would be my opinion that he is a prissy Brit. Opinions are allowed right?
And while this definition of prissy "Fussily and excessively respectable" my not apply exactly to John MacKenzie the person. It certainly applies to all of his postings on this thread except for the title.
But that point is moot. I did not single out John MacKenzie, just as he did not single anyone out when he said that boxing supporters were cave men in response to boxing threads on this forum.
I think that Willie's post perfectly sums up the point I am defending.
To sum up, if you are going to pick a fight, be a man. Don't hide behind prissy language when someone gives your own medicine back to you.
