No, it's the entire point. I did not, have not and will not ask for personal data. You are demanding personal data, when you should take a simple refusal.

I have not once attacked you.
Every single time you ask after my refusal is a direct personal attack.

It's true. Deal with it. Not everyone has to dance to your tune, and not everyone uses words precisely as you do. I would not use the word "stolen" unless I was making an accusation of criminal misconduct, which I was not - if I had escalated that way in what was no more than normal office politics (and when I could clearly prove the genesis of my ideas) and gotten people fired, I'd of made myself highly unpopular for no good reason.

And you even have the bad manners to sign your posts on a forum. That's what the signature block is for. Forums are not email. Again, you're simply proving a refusal to acknowledge that different means of communication and different types of data are not the same thing.

Oh, and I'm 99% sure that you're not the greek schmuck trying to hack me, but if you are, τρίτη εκμεταλλεύονται σχετικά με το δικαίωμα. Heh.

So asking you something is denying you have the choice to answer or not is it?

I have not "demanded" anything as I do not have the authority to demand anything from you. I have simply asked for data to back up your claim.

If you choose to see it that way that is also your choice.

Bad manners? Really?

I've never been accussed of bad manners for signing my posts on any forum board I have used in the last 20 years I've been using forum boards.

Perhaps it is you who has the bad manners to expect everyone to behave exactly as you do on a forum board.

Exactly, you will make a decision based on what you believe to be the "right" thing to do at the time. Which was exactly my point.

Use whatever hacky reasoning you feel like. Just admit that when you made the decision you made that decision based on what you believed to be the right thing to do. And at the time the decision was made it was a perfectly acceptable way to make the decision.

PKFFW - And you're still not backing down. Sigh, I have another internet stalker. Really, it gets boring and occasionally problematical after the first half-dozen.

You're also mistaking good manners with my personal desires, when it comes to manners. There are numerous forums where you'd get warned or banned for post signing.

(Example: EJ, rule 9)

And again with the personal insults. You never ever change or stop do you? See panel 8 (And no, I don't expect you to understand. This is intentional).

So if I'm stalking you because I am replying to you does that mean you are stalking me because you keep replying to me?

Well as you are the first and only person to ever have accused me of bad manners because I sign my posts then yes I would think you are confusing manners with your own personal desires.

As for other forums.......uh, who cares? I'm not posting on those other forums.

And the fact you are using some board titled "Elitist Jerks" as an example of what should be considered good manners is all the proof I need that you have no idea about good manners.

I have not demanded personal data, as you still have. Neither have I made death threats on a forum or tried to get me disconnected from my ISP, to name other things my internet stalkers have graduated to in the past (quite apart from the aforementioned skinheads).

As to "who cares?" I mean it's not like manners matter, after all. Because I'm sure that the standards of common courtesy are glad that you aim below them.

Of course, you now feel the need to bold your rudeness. This does nothing but call more attention to it. So hey - you might accuse (pa, again) me of being a Pot. However, see panel /3/, Mr. Kettle.

Folks... this thread is starting to look like a ping-pong match of mud slinging.

Enough with the insults.... don't make me turn this thread around. (er close it).

Can we get back on topic? Is there anything else to say.

I think the mods might want to consider pre-emptively locking piracy threads, BOb. Worse than politics, there's never any new arguments or actually any argument at all - an argument requires a shared frame of reference, and all too often the sides are simply arguing past each other.

(Hi kenny!)
I do agree with you that pretty much everything has been said about it. That is true of many of the topics here... search for my "The threads that never end" thread.

We did delete out the link to the pirate site in the first place. But... we don't like to close threads where this is a good discussion. We like to leave any thread open, even those that discuss piracy... however... when it devolves to personal insults and back and forth jabs they do get closed.

I think the best thing here is for the parties involved to just stop posting unless it is on topic.

I do so hope you are not suggesting or implying that I have made any death threats or tried to get you disconnected? If so I really will have to think about obtaining your personal data as I may be inclined to sue for libel.(seriously though, I couldn't care less and have no interest in your data)

As for demanding personal data......whatever dude!

There are places in the world where it is considered rude to not indulge in a jolly big belch after a meal to show your appreciation of said meal.

Should I judge my guests as rude for not doing so? I do not frequent those places, nor live in those places so frankly I don't care what they consider rude or not. Should I choose to visit those places in the future I will then consider modifying my behaviour to what they consider "good manners".

Same with forums. Frankly I don't give a rats **** if another forum board you frequent with the title of "Elitist Jerks" considers it rude to sign my posts. Should I ever wish to post there, I will consider not signing my posts.

Sorry to ask for data again but please link to anywhere on MR that states signing ones post is considered rude and should not be done.

Until then you claiming what I am doing is rude is no more than your desire to attempt to force me to behave as you personally see fit. I take this as a personal attack and now consider you a stalker!
