Diane,

What Zibilbo needs is a big cyber hug - he's hurting, he's bitter and needs love !

There is no Cyber Hug emoticon that I could find - but these are the nearest offerings I make to Zibilbo;

 :shakehands:

 :worshippy:

Once again, I remember why I like this guy  :laugh:

Cannot argue with a word of that - would it kill ya to tone it down a bit, bilbo?  Go on, rise above the herd.. :cool:

Please take your own advice, diane.   :yes:

Ahhh, another random dig from leftfield...Isn't this what you love to tell people that I do to you, when in fact it isn't that way around at all? This thread wasn't about me or you - and yet, there you are again.

Never give up on the things that make you smile

Just thought your first remark up there was a bit hypocritical after the reference you posted in shouts yesterday defaming myself and vegasvic just before I logged on.   :(  Sorry I was unable to let that pass.  Seeing as how that post was somewhere between 5-10 years old, it seemed a bit outdated also.  

Oh, but thanks for the addition of "manipulator" you gave me for my list of names people have called me!   :laugh:  All additions appreciated.   :unhappy:

Don't you just love Fibs!   :laugh:

1 - Manipulator is yours, not mine, it never left my keyboard.
2 - the reference was to point out it was still there after all this time. It has now been taken down - you can thank me for that whenever.
3 - If you had something to say about that, was it right to hijack someone else's thread?
4 - The other stuff was to someone who chose to have a pop at me again in shouts, for no particular reason that I know of. Glad to see you are still getting involved in their....issues.

I think you both should find a mud puddle, tear off each other's clothes, and have it out good & proper.

Someone pointed this thread out to me.  Allow me to step in...

Jez, you invited someone.  That person indicated that they were not interested in playing with you.  At that point, you had a couple of reasonable options.  One would have been to invite someone else and be done with it.  A second might have been to *politely* inquire of the person as to why they might perceive you as a dropper.

What you did instead was to harass that person.  That is NOT COOL.  Not cool at all, in fact.

And honestly, Jez... the average Odesys user *is* vermin.  They may not deliberately be such, but as a whole they are slow and unreliable opponents, largely because they have poor connections and a mediocre (at best) interface to FIBS.  Most FIBS regulars are not interested in playing them.  Of the top 30 droppers on FIBS, about two thirds are Odesys users.  Many of them habitually quit games to avoid losing.  That's not true of all phone users, but the average reliability of a phone user is FAR lower than the average reliability of a computer user.
