It's easy to be an internet commando...Statements like that or with a similar attitude could get your a$$ in trouble.
I don't have any tattoos, but if I ever got one, your comment
would be my new ink.
A forum is an area for the exchange of ideas. But one thing I have found is the "tone" of the guy who posts. Let me explain.
A guy who grew up on a farm as many rural examples and some jargon. So does a Marine considering his individual past. Same thing with an old guy. And it really sticks out on a newb trying to pad his resume' for bragging rights.
We see a wide range of folks everyday in our personal lives, and spot them easily after a few years. For example, I often see 'boomer Nam vets at the gym. You can recognize them in the eyes if you look.
I can also spot the guy who will cause trouble in a saloon. Mouthy guy, usually shorter than the norm (Napolean concept), trying to score with every lady, and taking offense at any perceived slight. And usually the guy who takes him out will be a quiet older guy who has been a gentleman for most of the night. Happens every time.
I have seen the flames here long enough to recognize the condition. Same guys. Same ideology ticks them off, usually it's sticking a pin in their machismo fantasies in life. And of all the irony, the guys they disagree with in a debate have the life experiences they profess to covet. Same tone in tavern, same tone on a forum.
And it's the overall reason I'm annoyed, but not personally offended when this behavior surfaces. I do not respect the guys who do it in bars or in bike shops, so why should here
be any different?
