    Because not knowing what words mean should be valued.

    Stupidity.

    Ok have fun with your pseudo-intellectual self.

    Linguistics revolves around using language in context, not necessarily just using specific meanings. It's not about being able to use a precise definition of a word or not, but rather being able to use something that communicates your idea to another person. Get over yourself. I'm not "valuing someone for not understanding a word", I'm using common sense.

    Fair enough. I did think about it as I was typing it really, but thought I'd let it slide because I couldn't really be bothered to change it.

    There is also a degree of irony in the fact that one of the things which helps/helped to keep Del Rey clear of alcohol was driving him to potentially drink.

    You (Mr. Dragon) might also want to work on your own content a little though. Had a check and saw several errors. Tut tut.

    Why use ironically when coincidentally would communicate the same thing?

    True. I do care, but I'm also generally lazy.

    You are totally missing the point if you think I'm advocating to use ironic over coincidence. Like, I understand that it's a huge pet peeve for some people but I was more or less poking at how unnecessarily critical and snotty you were being about the use of a word, when it was pretty easy to infer the meaning in context. At least woot21 was nice about it. You just sounded like an ******* tbh.

    It really frustrates me when people use mental disorders (like OCD or anxiety or whatever) as an excuse to be so blatantly rude to others.

    Still doesn't make it any less frustrating though. I hate it when people try and use mental illness as an excuse for things. There are many, many people with mental illness who work very hard and I think when people use it as a crutch constantly it supports stigma and gives a bad name.

    I'm just getting very, very sick of this. Not getting your way is not being abused, and mental illness is not an excuse to harass people. This needs to stop.

    Edit: lmao Apparently I'm going to Internet Court for being an evil scumbag.

    autism is the fan favourite around here

    fact: i used to work with people who had autism and they are nothing like the people on here who use it as a shield for bad behaviour

    I suspect I have a personality disorder. (like borderline and the like.)

    But instead of trying to have it define me or use it as an excuse for bad behaviour, I use it to reflect on how my perspective of those around me may be skewed. Then I try to adjust my behavior in a way that helps me better get along with the people around me.

    I am far from a mental health expert, but it seems like something these rude people should try. (I am not trying to dismiss anyone's mental illnesses here however, don't take it as me saying there is some easy fix here)

    Same for me. I know I have mild social anxiety, but it doesn't make me be an *******, it just makes me be awkward and quite in social situations.

    This just in. Sppf user JDavidC to sue users because he was Wrong on the Internet. More news at 11.

I cannot help it if staff are so ignorant that they assume they're right and I'm wrong. I cannot help it if Pesky Persian deliberately chooses to be insensitive and post things that she knows will upset me when she knows better. This will not look good for her if I press charges against her.

    Now, this has to stop. Pesky Persian will have charges pressed against her as well if she continues to antagonise me, as she now knows how serious this is.

    Joe, I have to amend the out-of-court settlement one more time, here are the terms:
    -Punish Ellie by stripping her of her Administrator status, and ejecting her from the staff entirely.
    -Punish Pesky Persian for malicious trolling (I'd say at LEAST 120 points are in order here). I'm giving you a time limit of 1 day, you have until midnight on the 30th August when it becomes 31st August to deal with her, UK time.
    -A professional, formal apology from Joe Merrick and Ellie.
    -An apology from Pesky Persian (it does not need to be formal, but it still needs to be good).
    -Deletion of ALL of Pesky Persian's unlawful comments (if she does not do so herself), and deletion of her signature.

    Failure to meet these terms will result in prosecution against serebii.net and Ellie. Any further attempts at antagonisation by Pesky Persian, or any of your staff, will result in prosecution against her, serebii.net, and Ellie. Any more slipups, any more moderators mistreating me, and I'll see you in court.

    Pesky Persian, you have no idea who you're messing with, I'm deadly serious about this. I'm not going to be polite this time. STOP what you are doing, or I'll see you in court.

    We'll all see each other in court. But it's also a potluck so bring something good. Not any of that potato salad crap.

    I have included a copy of my formal apology letter here.
