Wasnt it you who told me one time that when a person resorts to name calling they have lost the battle and are desperate to regain control, and that it shows their ignorance?
Yes, it was you, shortly after I discovered this forum.
Seems like, you should take your own advice there. lmao
Yes that is true, in the case of the person being the initiator(this is like pulling teeth) but in a case when you are being the one abused, you have the right to retaliate...and I do, always...
If you can't take it, don't give it, or agree with someone that uses abusive and you have done both....

<quoted text>Question. Did australians vote for a gun ban, or did the govt just take control and do it on their own?
The government did it with overwhelming public support...95% of the population agreed with it.

At first, there had been alot of times I tried to talk to you as a human being, but me being a yank, you would have nothing to do with it. So I decided what they hell, you aint nothing speical.
You think me, or any decent american, is going to just sit back and let you run your filthy mouth abut our country witout us saying anything? Give me a break.
Just like if any american ran your country down, would you sit back and take it? Hell no! And you shouldnt. So dont expect anything different from me. How hard is that for you to understand human nature? Apparently, pretty damn hard.
You have no social skills whatsoever.

Type in Australian gun ownership in Australia and you will see that over 760 000 people own guns. More than 10 times what you said liar ! considering that lots of australians are old, too young or just arrived in the country, that equates to alot of people that are 18 - 70 having guns.
You can see that the majority of people are in favor of guns or own them or are married to someone that does own them.
Nice to see your brain doesn't function well, if I stated 5.2% of the population which I did it isn't a stretch for most with nouse to calculate the amount and realise it was a typo....note I said most with nouse.

Well that would depend on how much truth was behind the defamatory remarks, see I can except it if there is some factual evidence or genuine concern or reason behind it, even though it might hurt....You yanks don't have that luxury.

PS...By the way, it is called tall poppy syndrome....you get too big for your britches and we cut you down...that is the Australian way with everyone, so you don't forget who you are and from whence you came and who you are responsible to for your success....a little insight there Pacha...we do it as a matter of fact to everyone, no one escapes....

No, no it isn't because it is never me that initiates it, do you see the difference. What I am doing is calling you on your nonsense and when you can't handle it you abuse and I retaliate...generally that is how it goes unless we have history...like dumb Holly....then any post is fair game.

really, then why do you get offended when others do the same to you?
BTW, very few have been that way to me, I could count all of them on one hand.
I also have alot of aussies that private message me, and they are no way, not even close, to the way you describe them to be.

Depends on what they say, I don't get offended for me I get offended for others. There are a number of posters on here that insult women in the worst possible manner and though I have an extremely tough skin and am very confident, I am aware of those that aren't, and move to head off the negative remark by putting them in a place where they belong, misogynistic references are not acceptable..on issues like rape or treating women like second class citizens..My amazing father never disrespects us(five females and one male) our mother or any woman, if anything he goes out of his way to make us feel good about ourselves and others, it is the standard set by him and we honor that by not accepting anything less.
Now in regards to describing other Aussies....explain your reasoning?
