When someone says something about someone and then the person sees it and then the person that says it tried to apologize but just makes it worse.

Hey, you! Yeah, you, maggot, standing next to the TARDIS! Put down that sonic screwdriver, and drop and give me 50! Did your mother teach you to talk to women like that? "Time Lord" my arse! If you're not careful you'll be scrubbing Daleks with a toothbrush from now until your twelfth life!

Absolutely :-) I had to dig deep into 20-year-old memories (augh, 24 years!), but it was worth it to Defend the Honor of a Lady! (Hey, is chivalrous chauvanism better than the other kind?).

Definitely! I need all the help I can get-some of the guys around here are less than courteous, and a couple (not RocketScientist2015 or Laird Howe) are downright dishonorable and disgusting.

Dishonorable? I'll have you know I keep my word, stoop to help the cattipiller, get into fights on a girls behalf, and defend those weaker than me... You just aren't weaker, so I accept you as an equal and make a joke... Then you start hitting and insulting me, shame, shame....

The point was that you two (among others, one presumes) are not dishonorable! You may be occasionally discourteous (aren't we all), but that's another matter :-)

Yes, RS and gmjhowe are, on the Annoying Scale (rating from 1-10, 1 being about as annoying as a fly buzzing around your head, and 10 being someone you want to strangle to make them stop), are a mild 0.5 at the very worst.

I was referring to other members. Thankfully there's only 2-3 of them...
