I didn't see the 'South African' thing, I never thought you a racist and the original joke was a little bad.
Whatever. The problem has been resolved. We can go back to talking about... Whatever it is we talk about.
I pronounce this issue dead. Take your nude Hitler elsewhere.
Obviously you either didn't read my reply, or just didn't get it.
The original joke wasn't a little bad, it was plainly stupid. Trying to lighten the impact, like it wasn't that much, only adds to the insult.
Whatever? That's a comment people make about something they don't give a damn about.
The problem has been resolved/I pronounce this issue dead? That's not your place; you weren't the recipient of a stinging insult that neither you nor Chainsaw Midget get the impact of.
Your wrap-up is again along the same lines as the original insult.
I'm trying to give you credit here. I don't think you intended insult or harm; I hope you didn't. I think it's a problem of saying the first thing that comes to mind without considering it's impact. Of course you can't consider every word you say or type, but typing is a luxury as we do have the ability to take something back before we say it; you may want to exercise that luxury, and add a little prudence while you are at it.
Another thing is different circles, different worlds. The advantage some of us have is that we have been here for years and had a virtual cross-cultural experience, but some of that experience has been gained from saying stupid things; so you're not the only one who has said something stupid or will you be the last.
The one thing that you can do though is not try to lighten the impact of your mistake like it meant nothing, or add to it. Consider your words.
I hope you enjoy the forum and have a good time here; but do keep in mind that if it's between you and Trevor, I'll sacrifice you in an instant and make it where you would never want to come back here. That's being honest; not something I want to do.
I really hope you get it.
