IMO, this forum needs Davel and others who post “controversially” because without them it would be Dullsville Arizona.

Well, as you say, you're just here for the craic.

I am indeed, I’m not here as a McCann scholar or armchair detective, is that so very wrong of me?

Not in the least; it just means you have different priorities.

Not really.  Anyone who says they post here for purely altruistic reasons is a liar.  We’re all here to enjoy ourselves, it’s just some get their enjoyment from picking holes in the McCanns’ statements and some get their enyoyment from pointing out the absurd logic others employ to maintain their belief that the McCanns were involved in Madeleine’s disappearance.

It all comes down to opinion in the end because of the lack of evidence. The point is I think abusing other members is wrong, full stop. You seem to think it's OK.

You seem to think that posters who abuse the family of a missing little girl is ok.
I don't remember any outcry when a moderator called Madeleine's parents s***!.
That was his opinion!
When the jocular post was made by a poster who finds humour in a little girls disappearance and when that post was liked by a moderator, then a poster is entitled to use the same descriptive language as has been previously endorsed by a moderator. IMO.

You don’t think it’s wrong at all.  You have liked several abusive posts aimed at supporters.  Plus your definition of abuse is extremely wide when you think you’re on the receiving end of it, having been accused myself by  you of abusing you in the past.  I have also been accused of being a stalker by another member, simply for challenging her views, so  could you define “abuse” specifically?

"Abuse" appears to be a word which is thrown around willy-nilly. I was accused of attacking someone on another forum because I typed certain words in capitals!!! ie "YOU", as opposed to "you" purely to emphasize that something was personal rather than generic. Accusing someone of abuse simply because they disagree seems common-place, as is the accusation of "stalker" because one poster takes offense at being disagreed with by, say, one person in particular. Such a delicate little flower/internet virgin was I, when it first occurred, that I was appalled that such could be thought of me.........................I learned very quickly that a thick skin is de rigour!!!

I class abuse as making personal remarks to other members. Calling them stupid, unintelligent or otherwise lacking in some way. I take those insults on the chin because I know it means they have run out of sensible answers, I'm aksi amused by the fact that those who hurl these insults around complain so bitterly if someone upsets them. Ifthey can't take it they shouldn't dish it out.

Does that explain why you sometimes like abusive posts aimed at members who you perceive to be abusive?

You’ll be pleased to know I have received a warning for making snide remarks to other posters.  I have no idea which post so offended the mods, it would be nice to know though.

I like all kinds of posts for all kinds of reasons; not all of them by sceptics either. Davel's reference to the illuminations a while back made me laugh out loud.

Don't you know when you're being snide?

You are being snide in that post!

"Mocking in an indirect way"

In my opinion of course.

It's nonsense.
At least in school pupils knew the reason  why  they  were being " punished"
Was the snide remark the reason you have the ten percent award?
