Rosie: You've been away from GWD too long to appreciate the background of Ben's comments. For example, I have accused him of tilting at windmills many times.

I usually don't agree with Ben -- though he didn't vote for Brexit -- but I'm not sure accusing him of being three sheets to the wind and not multilingual is good for the Great World Debate.

Pleased that I have finally sorted out my vote

Can we settle for TWO sheets?

Heck, I've posted while drinking before, and pretty sure I've accused others of doing the same.  Sometimes a stiff drink is (or was) needed here.  Cheesy  I don't think Rosie did anything beyond the pale.

Clearly you didn't understand any of the exchanges: if it was a compliment, then Ben would be a Nazi sympathizer. if it was not, then it was irony, a cheap bit of fun with the German thing that Brits like to make, despite it being very stale after half a century. Believe me, I was married to a German and lived in the UK with him for a number of years.

Yeah.

So I clearly didn't understand any of the exchanges. But I am a Brit, so according to your logic I do like to make stale fun at Germans. There's an irony here that can't be lost on you.

I know I'm being pedantic, but that is condescending and offensive in the same breath.

I can't comment on you're experience here, but surely to god you can't hold me responsible for it, and given the grammatical nature of some of the arguments you've been involved in in the meantime, I'll take not understanding the exchanges.

EDIT: Just made a joke in another thread that pretty much negates this whole post. Totally worth it.

I agree, and the 'ze Kraut' nonsense is nothing more than a very common feature of endemic widespread English [sic] ignorance.  But Ben has just returned and I'd prefer to keep it that way. That's all.

You've posted while drinking! Why wasn't I told?! The all-time champion in that department was K-K-Kate. I think 'extravaganza' is the word.
