The guy called me a loser because I had a high post count, suggesting I have nothing better to do than sit and post all day. I checked his history, and it turns out we have a nearly identical post per day rate, and he exceeds me slightly. So I point out that he actually posts more per day than I do, so by his own standards, he’s a bigger loser.
His behavior is clearly much more aggressive than mine. I was only responding to point out the ironic error of his own insult. Even if you perceive that to be an insult in terms of violating the rules, there’s no way that a member of generally long and good standing goes right to a warning for such an incredibly mild retort after being insulted. I’ve seen mod notes for much more aggressive, clear insults from more problematic posters.
Idle Thoughts has a personal beef with me for mostly off-board communication we’ve had. It may be relevant.
