    So you reckon Manfan was being sarcastic?

    There was nothing tongue in cheek about it, he was trying to be clever, which he aint, and continued to waffle on as though he was making sense, which he wasn't.
    Aping or mirroring another is a method of saying ,"Oh, you, me, look, same same." just to get another onside.

    Latindacer does the same kind of thing, lathering on a tone of genteel superiority when he thinks he's got a good idea to show off to those he fears or admires.
    He doesn't call me or Willy or some others "esteemed" or intelligent, unless it was followed by a rolfer or sarky face emoticon, he curses the very air we breath, let alone the ground we stand on, as does Manfan, who would have followed "esteemed" with an explanation of why has to do so.

    My response to him was sarcasm, as sarcastic as I could get,

    Basically, the dweeb was trying to creep up Looper's arse, for approval and looper clipped his ears for it, as the dialogue went like this;

    Maanaam (Talking to me)
    Lets look at the last; I said EITHER a religious bigot OR a latent homosexual, and we know you're an atheist, so...
    Looper
    This position is part of the problem with this debate. The intolerance of opposing points of view and the creakingly dull declaration that any opposition to any part of the gay political agenda must be rooted in closet homosexuality or religious bafflegab.
    Maanaam
    I was referring to the esteemed member, not generalising about all anti-gay marriage people, and besides, if it was a generalisation, it would probably be a fair one. Generalisation, not an absolute.

    The "esteemed member" in this case was me, whom Manfan was slagging to the nines right up till then, when he was suddenly hauled up by Looper's (whom he generally respects) criticism of his presumptuousness in trying his luck to bring me down with a persistent insistence that I answer his totally illogical double headed leading question to his liking, the soft shit.
    He didn't refer to me as "That twat bENT" in his defensive reply,...or some such as is his custom, but tried to slither out of the way of further criticism from Looper, by putting on an air of gentility, which he failed miserably to pull off.

    So,it goes.

    The twat still hasn't learned his lesson, so further coaching and goading from his rat pack of pals, all identifiable as birds of a feather, right down to singing off the same song sheet as conducted by Ants Khnobrotson behind his buttons.


    Just quoting this one for posterity. It's classic. If only he'd added some flawed "science" it would have been complete.
    Far too many glaringly obvious examples of our esteemed member's confusion, non-comprehension, weird and irrational extrapolation, and unfathomable interpretations to respond to.

    buttons.
    The Cambridge dictionary is incorrect. They have a habit of retrofitting meaning to words, so now they want us to agree that "literally" literally doesn't mean "literally"; nope.
    Irony is remarks and situations that mean the opposite of what they say; sarcasm is caustic remarks, that may or may not use irony; but irony is not a subset of sarcasm or vice versa: sarcasm is a vehicle by which steaming clods or a cargo of irony may be delivered.
    Like I said, you can't have a sarcastic situation; but you can have an ironic situation and ironic language. Sarcasm is a description of category of remark that is caustic or cutting, which may or may not use irony as a mechanism, along with other rhetorical mechanisms.

    Honestly, go and get stuck into actual rhetoric and logic, don't just use a lame dictionary written by halfwits who've never touched a book on classics or philosophy.
    I was sarcastically referring to the member as "esteemed".
    The esteemed member's response in taking it as a compliment was ironic.

    Irony:a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.

    Fwkn parrot.
    You still don't understand, do you?

    I took the word neither as a compliment nor an insult. Instead, I ridiculed you for using the word, but you, not knowing what you're yaking on about, are characteristically still obsessively trolling over a non-event other than your own foolishness.

    Ironically, your attempt at insulting me flipped back and copped ya in da a*se, ya wannabe.

    Now a small number of large Australian Companies have thrown their collective weight behind an Advertising campaign.



    There are a series of the youtubes produced as part of the 5 Million Dollar Advertising campaign.



    The campaiign incudes inviting customers to order one of 250,000 specially-commissioned rings bearing the phrase "until we all belong" - which will also appear on Qantas boarding passes and other paraphernalia.

    The ring is incomplete, representing the "gap" in equality between same-sex couples and their heterosexual peers. In a series of video advertisements, straight allies are encouraged to wear the rings "until we all belong".

    "They're showing us that their commitment to the issue is deepening. They know this is good for their employees, it is good for their customers and it is good for Australia."

    Story



    Are we really to believe that Multinational Corporate Entities have the core issue at heart?

    Or, more likely, they see this a movement which differentiates themselves from others and shows they have a compassionate heart to Social Issues. The Advertising Companies have a term for it ... 'point of difference marketing'*

    FFS ... Banks with a heart ...


    A final quote from the story above which is a little closer to the truth ...

    "The 5000 staff at Qantas who lost their jobs a few years ago and the 200 staff who lost their jobs at ANZ Bank last year would be very disappointed to learn those companies couldn't afford to keep them but have the money for these types of campaigns.

    Senator Abetz said Australians should have no doubt campaigns on same-sex marriage were funded by higher prices and job losses.

    "I think Australians are getting fed up with some big business CEOs constantly trying to wave their PC credentials rather than getting on and delivering the services consumers expect at a reasonable price," he said.


    * Point of difference. Point of difference refers to the factors of goods or services that establish differentiation. Differentiation is the way in which the goods or services of a company differ from its competitors. Indicators of the point of difference's success would be increased customer benefit and brand loyalty.

    Fwk you've got some complications!

    I recommend you discontinue the injections, the pain sounds terrible, hostility, projectile spitting and yelling for nurse! Not on eh!!

    OK, just stick a cabbage up yer a^se instead of using the aloe vera stalk as I suggested to you earlier.

    (Sigh) I Knew the PC brigade would not be long in coming forth. What you mean TC is that you don't agree. I am not trying to convince anyone. I am giving my point of view only. I would never attempt to influence the PC brigade as their mistaken belief that they are never wrong combined with tunnel vision and the unwavering belief that their truth is the only truth does not allow them to see any other point of view, even when it is blindingly obvious. Unlike the PC brigade I support your right to have a differing opinion. Whether I am right or wrong I shall leave to the future. Fear of inclusion? Inaccurate but don't let the truth get in the way of PCness. Have a magnificent day.
