I started to type a plea to return the neg reps. But I just decided against it, because if we had them, I was so going to neg rep Plath for something she said that pissed me off. And we all know that would start a war again. Or at least a lot of rep related hostility.

That's the point I was going for last time. Alas, some people got upset. One never returned. (Gibba)

When did the neg rep get stopped? Was it gone for a while, came back and then taken away again? Or has it only been taken away the one time.

I don't really notice, I think I've only ever neg-repped once or twice. I don't think I've ever used my power of infraction.

Sounds like fighting words to me.

I don't know, it was your attitude in the gun control thread. I'm glad we don't have it because I would regret neg repping you at this point. I just thought you sure thought you knew a lot about American culture, especially regarding guns, just for having visited a few times and our image in the international media. But I'm over it now. If you ever come to Northern California I'll take you to play target practice at the property. Then you can see firsthand.

Ok.. I don't want to go fully into it but I do take issue with you kind of intimating I am spouting media exaggerations and dipping my toe into the US and pretending I'm an expert. The example I gave in the gun thread was a guy I knew well and was pretty liberal in a lot of important ways, except what I thought to be bizarre opinions regarding gun rights. I also think that if the US considered how it is portrayed a little more by the international media, if the US perhaps asked questions like "why do we keep on having these kinds of gun incidents", perhaps a saner response to gun ownership/laws might be the outcome.

And btw, I do have a firsthand experience with guns and the destruction they cause, coming from a part of the world where for the last 30 years illegal gun possession has been a major factor in the killings of our Troubles. In fact, one of the reasons I am so anti-guns is because I've seen the difference in a society where illegal guns hold a balance of power, and also what it is like once those guns have been decommissioned.

We are neighbors of Mexico.


That is all.

You're from Northern California though, right?

By this I mean that even if we outlawed all weapons, the black market would never be controlled because we are neighbors of Mexico. Drugs are illegal, but yeah, we're totally drug free here. And yes, I'm in northern California. A whole 10 hours from mexico if you drive the speed limit.

And if anyone is asking "why do we keep having these kinds of incidents?" it is not because of over-liberal gun laws. It is because some people are fucking crazy.

Mexico is a problem.

I don't think I ever got neg-repped... though my posting is schizo and questionable at times.

I've never infracted as I've certainly posted worse.
