Mr. Dreadful - But really I'm not actually your friend, but I am...

My thread is supposed to be lighthearted, you seem to be repeatedly trying to get a rise out of me. I have answered the question about shotguns in a manner I feel is in keeping with the spirit of Ask Mr. Dreadful but further questions like that will be ignored.

Now just run along and grow up smiley - ok

Wow, that was spectacularly patronising.

I can take black humour but I just didn't find your question funny, and given your response to my political leanings in other threads it just looked like trolling to me.

Actually, I've just popped back to explain that was quite ruthless, you beat me to it smiley - laugh The people I deal with on a daily basis are dangerous, deceitful and manipulative - and that's just the other staff smiley - winkeye Patronising? Nah, just me having fun with word and mind games smiley - smooch

Your entreaty that you are somewhat sensitive to my robust gallows humour and strong personality was quite reasonable in retrospect smiley - ok

Yes I quite agree my responses to your political leanings on the other, more serious, threads may ruffle your feathers and others, because we differ radically smiley - magic The missives in 'Ask Mr Dreadful' aren't meant to be taken seriously or trolling (Don't feed the trolls smiley - winkeye) Merely to make light of our differences of opinion smiley - biggrin
I did particularly like the one about Billy Big Fist, Doc Steele and emptying wheelchairs, your response was superb, Touche smiley - rofl

Give as good as you get, my friend. Don't take anything I say too seriously, it's all done in the best possible taste smiley - cheerup

Dost thou think, just because thou art pious, there shall be no more cakes and ale smiley - cool

The thing is, mostly the differences of opinion can be done humorously and are taken as such (the Greens question, for example)... but I just completely failed to see the funny side of the one about the shotguns and dogs 'accidentally' savaging foxes. Normally I can take anything on the chin and always endeavour to give as good as I get, but there are something I just feel quite strongly about and the Big Red Foxhunt is one of them.

Don't get me wrong, I know enough about the countryside to realise that foxes are a pest that need to be controlled... but I think it should be a bloke, a gun and *maybe* one dog to flush the blighters out if necessart... not a bunch of Hainsworth-clad people on horses with a shedload (imperial) of dogs; Mr. Walnut, meet Mr. Sledgehamer.

Hmmmmmm, you do indeed has very strong and focussed opinions on the control of vermin. I'm not about to attempt in anyway change your views, they are quite legitimate.

I would point out that healthy and able anaimals easily elude the hounds, it is only the old, ill and infirm that are culled. I do strongly disagree with the hunts blocking up dens to prevent the able from taking refuge.

Shooting and poison, the currently acceptable and legal means of control is indiscriminate.

Glad you liked the 'Greens' question, it was an educated guess you are a devottee.

Playing on words, my favourite pastime. Brussels, the devils vegetable according to Admiral Lord Nelson, I have yet to work that into a dig at the EU, but I'm thinking on it smiley - winkeye

Normally I would treat your remarks abot the CA protest as double standards with the contempt it so richly deserves. However, I do consider you worthy of a little education,smiley - rolleyes despite your selective memory

Wow, deliberately misunderstanding *and* insulting me at the same time. You're on form today.

If you can demonstrate that appearing to praise one set of valid protests while entirely condemning another is not a double standard please do so, and I will apologise. Just posting links to news stories is, as you put it, "as clumsy as a child".

smiley - sigh I merely pointed out, and from my own experience, the CA protests were largely peaceful met with excessive force and to quote one senior Police Officer the cracking of heads. Look at the pictures in the links, sent to make it easier for you to comprehend. You and one or two others seemed to have selective memories on that. I didn't praise the CA protests smiley - cross I was there having my head cracked and took it on the chin like a grown up - literally smiley - laugh We both condemn excessive Police violence, especially me having been on the recieving end in Exeter.

'Me thinks the lady doth protest too much' Mr Dreadful. That's cross gendering with regards to yousmiley - winkeye How very contemporary of me smiley - smiley

The peacefulness of the protests was not the issue in this case, nor was the police responts. It was about the relative validity of the protests, how one can be something you feel worth supporting while the other was just a waste of time... even though they're both about valid issues (well, maybe not the fox hunting bit smiley - winkeye) and affect thousands of people now and in the future.

And, well, if you attended the protests why don't you praise them? Surely a cause you support is worthy of praise?

On my luch break now, so I have more time to discus these things. smiley - laugh It's been raised a number of times, about smiley - sigh, smiley - laugh

In fairness to King Bomba and I supported him against the criticism. At least he produced something smiley - shrug Anyone who can think and create a better one, well crack on smiley - ok

Also smiley - offtopic I see my Christmas present missive got smiley - yikessmiley - laugh I'm wasn't suprised, my sense of humour can be very close to the edge, particularly 'Gallows Humour'. Henry VIII was renowned for it apprantly, suppose you have to be if you are little more than a cultivated thug. Not sure what that makes me smiley - rofl I shall have to ask Mr Dreadful smiley - winkeye

Forgotten what we were discussing here now smiley - senior and it's the end of lunch. Couldn't have been important then, undoubtably my usual drivel about disturbing the peace of the countryside or students disturbing the peace of the urban streets smiley - winkeye

Oh well back to work..........more "No" and "What part of 'No' don't you understand" for the deceitful, manipulatve and confrontional clientele. Thank goodness for H2G2, where I let my mind free from the constraints of political correctness and good manners smiley - evilgrin

To be honest it probably wasn't that important in real terms... which causes are and aren't worthy is a very subjective thingy anyway and nobody ever persuaded anyone to come around to their viewpoint by arguing on the internet about it!

Power to the people!

God knows. Perhaps we should 'Ask Mr Dreadful'. Did you see http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/brunel/F19585?thread=502685&post=104443963#p104443963 post1202????? Is there no one we are alowed to hate anymore because they look/talk funny (As in peculiar, not ha ha) disagree slightly with our dearest held tenets? Apparently there is, see a couple of posts on Though I do start to wonder if even that may become 'socially' acceptable before long, though that needs to be a subject of another thread
