Yep, it's not uncommon to call people "Sir", I simply never have.

No but I am, I think it's weird that I've never done so and, on reflection, can't conceive of my self ever being able to do it. :)

Which is to say I'd have to add a concious fermata to my speech to insert it.

b) it's not in a hostile situation where  that's likely to cause it to escalate.

I have to point out, that I have seen you call a forum member the C word in a hostile situation. I know for a fact you don't like this person (you have told us as much many times) and I am surprised she didn't escalate.

I did though. I complained to Torgos. He did nothing.

I later complained about how men control the board on a random thread. I still think that's true, but there are more men than women.

Also, I can't seem to amke many female friends. I can't make many friends actually, but I get along must better with men.

My brain confuses myself

If it makes you feel any better, I would ban a person for that for sure (depending on context of course - If it was out of the blue, banned for sure, if they were engaged in a fight, a warning for both etc. You know what I'm saying) and I think it's likely that the other mods would too.

isn't that the entire point of it?  To demean and insult a woman?
In the US, yes.

Isn't that the point of most insults, to demean and insult someone?
I'm referring to the gender usage their, as Grug and I touched upon above. :)

I think it's a Class 1 insult. I'll use it, but I have to be pretty damn pissed off to haul it out. And it isn't gender-specific curse word for me.

It's a coarse, ugly word, in my opinion. But only a word.

Well, I would not want Imrahil banned. I don't agree with everything about him, but his pros far outweigh his one or two idiosyncrasies that I don't really like.

And I am only trying to explain how I saw the exchange. I don't blame, Im, and I am not mad at him about it. Just bringing it up.

Of course I am talking about a temporary ban.

My laptop is being weird. I dual booted a long time ago, and I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7 Home Premium. With Windows 7, my fan/HDD is being aggressively loud. When I'm running Ubuntu, it's still loud, but not absurd. I wish I understood this thing sometimes.

Yup, not a good sign when drives start getting louder.

And the difference with Windows vs. Ubuntu is just because Windows is more of a resource hog and is making the laptop work harder.

I saw Bling Ring the other day.  I'm disappointed that the Bling Ring used Google instead of Bing to research their targets.

They'd still have been using Google though...

Freaking praying mantis attacked me this morning.  It fell on my head and fluttered around a while while I screamed in terror.

I hate those fuckers.
