If I don’t like what you like and tell you and why, have I insulted you?

I've had my wrist slapped for arguing with pick up owners again and got told to come here.

Is this like a time out thread?

Cheers
Tony

Actually, it is more than a time-out thread IMO.

Rather . . . a home for combative arguing, just for the sake of arguing, even irrationally, but within the parameters of this site's rules for politeness and so forth.

Q. E. D. ?

I am creating this thread as a central place for all arguments.
There are no ground rules except that forum rules must be followed.
Multiple arguments may be going on at once. In fact, that should increase the fun.

So any time you feel like doing any of the following; altercate, bandy, battle, bicker, break with, buck, bump heads, contend, cross, cross swords, disagree, dispute, face down, face off, feud, gang up on, get in one's face, go one on one, hammer, hammer away, hash, hash over, hassle, have at each other, have at it, jump, jump on, knock around, lock horns, mix it up, pettifog, pick an argument, put up a fight, put up a struggle, quarrel, quibble, rehash, row, sass, set to, sock it to, squabble, stick it to, talk back, or wrangle, feel free to post to this thread.
In fact if you are considering a post in another thread that might stir up trouble, try it here first and see what happens.

Those of us who do not wish to participate may feel free to try out the new ignore thread function.

You may start on the count of three.

one... two... three...

If you use the ignore thread you're just showing your ignorance!

Even though Feynman was a physicist rather than an engineer, the man was my hero after I read his books. He applied his amazing brain to many more real-world conundrums than just the mysteries of the universe. Like pretending to speak Portuguese in Brazil when he only knew Spanish, and being complimented by native Portuguese-speakers for his fluent formality (or formal fluency).

Or as more neutrally translated . . .

“Which is [hereby] demonstrated.”

Politeness is not a prerequisite as long as you can be sneaky. For example, don't use 4 letter words to describe politicans which for some mysterious reason tend to be 5 letter words.
