My username used to be P.T. Smegma.
I indelibly fouled that name, IMO, by getting banned for slagging on Scoticher for a pretty mild rebuke she made to me. Search if you want, I’d rather not relive that by linking to it.
Suffice it to say- Scotticher and Lynn,primarily among other gracious Dopers, saw fit to forgive my churlish behavior.
I was also informed that my behavior in that thread insulted smegma, especially Smeghead!
Therefore I requested that my username be changed to my given name of Denis (there’s some lovely filth down here!). Yes indeed, I am the one who experienced the violence inherent in the system and lived to tell the tale!
OK, I got my ass booted for behaving in a jerkish way and was welcomed back after apologizing.
Please continue expecting the same insightful sarcasm (heh) and inane observations, as well as the occaisional serious discussion from me. No more idiotic meltdowns, though, however “justified” I might feel they are.
I thank you for reading this.
