My goodness some of you are thick.  Yes that is what I said.  Thank you for explaining my own comment to me.  Questionable as in I don’t think he’s going to make a large impact for us.  I really hope I’m wrong, but that’s my opinion right now.

Did I call out his character?  No. That’s what I’ve been trying to defend.  

That’s at least twice you’ve alluded to members of this community being less than intelligent, myself included among them. 

My suggestion to you moving forward, contrary to your belief that this place is inhabited by a bunch of folks of questionable intelligence, try to assume some of us are at least as sharp as you. A lot of us have a great deal of experience posting in this community or communities like it, and many of us are very careful with our words. It’s a quality you may wish to emulate.

All I said is you disrespected DA about as much as you possibly could, and the response is I'm Thick. Not to toot my own horn, but I do have a MENSA ID number! You better find a different commentary to disrespect me!

So I’m just supposed to sit here and take it while I’m called out for stuff I never said?  I defended and stated my position three times. Two posters didn’t seem to understand what I clearly explained three times, so I called them thick.  

The comment that you are referring to about me calling you unintelligent was literally me saying “You’re really overthinking this”.  That’s calling you less than intelligent? Toughen up buddy.

Pulling out the Mensa card.  Haven’t seen that on the internets in quite a while. r/iamverysmart

You tend towards glibness (referring to people as “thick”), you’re generally rude, and you actually do attack members of the community all the while. It’s against community guidelines, you should take a gander through and refamilarize yourself.

As for my level of toughness, I’m fine where and how I am. I am in no need of your postulating and suggesting I am somehow insufficient in that area.

Is it possible for you guys just to PM each other with your senseless bickering on a RL thread?

As for “sitting there and taking it?” Sure, when people call you out and you then walk back your comments to better explain yourself, generally, a bigger man would swallow their pride and politely excuse their initial comments and then open up about either what they really meant to say or would now say based on what others have brought to the conversation.

The argument we had earlier in this thread was after a poster called my comment “the dumbest thing I’ve read all day”.  Sorry that I took offense to that. 

How am I generally rude?  I make sure to never name call on here and the worst I’ve done is call someone thick after being falsely accused of attacking Damezi’s character.  I’m not the one crying about community guidelines.  Toughen up buddy.

Apologies. To be fair, we aren’t getting in the way of any breaking news at the moment. This will all be over shortly.

Sure, and that was offensive towards you, and that wasn’t right. But, you responding in kind doesn’t make it any better, 10.

Please, stop taking shots at me. I don’t appreciate the denigration. I’m asking nicely.

I don’t want to excuse my initial comment it’s exactly what I meant to say.

Ok, absolutely...this stops now.

If we land Romeo in combination with louisvilles issues, I wonder how much it will help with recruiting in SE Indiana.  Seems most in that area are louisville fans first.  Could potentially help locking down the state.

This might be a little OT, but at little diversion never hurt.  Romeo just posted this to Instagram.  Fingers crossed that he's wearing more crimson next year.
