To me the only difference between Gangsta and Masaka in this exchange is the age difference. Otherwise one was as bad as the other.
I am never going to completely agree with this. Many of my responses were triggered, by increasing frustration. I had held my tongue for a long time. However what I do accept is that being the adult, like it or not it was my responsibility to temper my responses accordingly. And that is as close to an apology as I am capable of giving today.
In my own defence the comments about parenting, and parenting skills is one that most teachers and people of a certain age, have between themselves on a regular basis. It falls into the "don't policemen look young these days", and wanting to give the majority of politicians a short sharp smack, categories.
Equally it is recognised that about 50% of the population demonstrate autistic traits - ie most males.
Either way, more for the sake of Mark than anything I am going to bale out for a bit and let things calm down. Although I will probably allow myself to make a small comment on the appropriate thread, (The D.I.T. thread, rather than the other players thread), given the form my comment is inevitably going to take, after this evenings final. Perhaps any other converts could join me?
