Re: Why no animated GIFs for avatars?

And you don't know how to show respect to me, and others. You need to learn respect before giving out respect! Teachers can't speak Spanish before they know Spanish themselves.

Chilli..I wouldn`t care if Antony was God himself...he has no right to be as snotty and sarcastic to people as he is..it`s called showing others respect, and he obviously hasn`t learned how yet...
He owns the friggin board. He has the right to say whatever the hell he wants. Noone's forcing you to be here.

Now, could anyone else that feels like Ant needs to learn to be polite speak up? Or can we file this topic under "who gives a shit"?

Re: Why no animated GIFs for avatars?

I think Antony's attitude is just fine and always has been. But then ... he is my secret lover so I am a bit biased now. Anyway, he is way more forgiving on this board than many people I know. However, once you cross a certain line with him then yes, he is an ass but usually there is a good reason for it.

Re: Why no animated GIFs for avatars?

Look..I come here to read and chat about B5, and talk to CH..that`s about it..Antony is rude, and has been from the start...he has a problem with G and I and our style of posting..so what?..If he wants to kick us (or just me, whatever) off here, so be it...

Other members here have been lovely to get to know..Marcus esp, and a few others...They don`t seem to have a problem with me..wonder why?

Re: Why no animated GIFs for avatars?

My advice to anyone who doesn't enjoy a pissing match is to stop pissing.

Firstly, it's "G and me", not "G and I".

Secondly, I have no problem with G. And this misconception stems from, way back to when I first posted and said: "Because this isn't 'Bob's first homepage' with star backgrounds, and animated men digging saying 'Under construction'".

Most normal people here chuckled at my clever use of humour, particularly as sci-fi fans are statistically more likely to be early adopters of the internet, and get the humour of the early days when under contstruction signs prolifilated the web with the advent of animated GIFs and rise of Netscape 2. I could have made jokes about blink tags, but that may have gone a little too far. But even amongst this humour, I did answer the question: they are distracting and garish, which most people will have got from my message.

Of course you didn't. You were living in literal land. "Bob's first homepage?" you howled, spitting your coffee on your computer. "Under construction sign? What is he on! I must correct his behaviour now, before it's too late," you proclaimed.

So you thought you could come in here and start "correcting me". And since then you keep putting your finger in the plug socket, bzz, scream ouch, cry, then do it again.

Bzz. Ouch.

Bzz. Ouch.

People like you will never learn. And the more you argue and think you're clever, on a sci-fi messageboard of all places, is proving the more you just don't get it. And I find this funny, and you try again... and it's amusing.

I think now that my eyes are bleeding that it is time to close this ever-so-fascinating thread.

As someone said, "Sense and decency has no place on the B5TV admin staff". So Markas has been fired. In unrelated news, Chilli is our new admin and High Treason Prevention Officer.
