Ahh, the above two posts are a classic example of American colloquialisms being misunderstood by a foreign visitor. Sandsailor jokingly calls Alex a Suck A$$ meaning suck up or brown noser and Alex interprets that to mean Sandsailor is insulting him and telling him to suck his a$$. Naturally, Alex steps up the return fire a notch. Classic example of why you don't use slang, Ebonics or colloquialisms when talking to someone who's not from your country.

True enough.

I would like to see the three posts prior to yours removed from this thread so that the genuine sentiment isn't lost.

Do you not have the mouse click power to remove said three non needed posts?

MArty,

Yes we do. I suppose we could do that.

But if we make it all disappear then this misunderstanding will never get resolved, and the animosity (if there is any -- not absolutely sure?) will linger, because all they'll see is that we deleted their posts. Charlie did a nice job of explaining the situation, so I'd like them to see that and then edit their own posts.

This approach results in some material remaining up longer than it should, but overall I think it's the better approach. Opinions may vary.

John,

Now I see what you are doing! better call than deleting the posts. And knowing Alex, he will figure out the misunderstanding and correct himself, unless of course in his drugged afterward state thought he was saying a joke too..........

This is of course assuming they both acknowledge the misunderstanding!

Marty

John, with all due respect, even the thought of removing those posts is an affront. We are adults here and a little misunderstandings and friendly jostling is what makes this place so great, it is the written word and emotions are not always used to imply the sentiment. Is it going to be a case of finger wagging by the Mods at every turn or will the thread get locked as soon as it wanders off course. I just wonder where this will all end.
