Thankyou lads for your kind sentiments, I much appreciate it. But where is the "aggressive" part of your respective posts? You're likely to be banned by Nef Yoo if you are not careful!

It's great that you're trying to understand how to play this game.

I suppose I can't really blame you for not reading back through this thread. It is long and quite boring, I'm afraid.
Roy Hunter wrote:[out_of_character]Proper passive-aggressive behaviour involves being angry and judgemental about someone or something, but rigidly keeping up the appearance up that you are not angry or judgemental. That is why you turn the blame on yourself or someone / something else rather than the person you are talking about (in the context of this game, the previous poster). It should be obvious, however, that the 'someone' you are talking about, or the 'these people' to whom you allude, is in fact the previous poster. Alternatively, you can say something in such a way that it is perfectly obvious that you mean the diametrically opposite thing.[/out_of_character]

It's fine that you didn't understand I was talking to Monobaz.

No, really, it's no problem at all.

Try as I may to understand this game I just don’t seem to “get it” largely because certain confounded Moderators/Administrators (who shall remain nameless) keep interrupting the natural flow of the thread which in turn is only natural because they are simply doing their jobs but given they are paid the big bucks one could be forgiven for assuming they might be slightly less intrusive and allow us plebs to play albeit ever so poorly owing to the fact we have no idea of what we are doing and so we/I take full responsibility for the completely unjustified and unnecessary intervention. Thankyou for putting this situation right.

Oops. My bad. I'll shut up now, shall I?

Excuse the sly lips Roy, I was just practicing. Lord knows a slight shove in the right direction was certainly in order because I am so very new at this game I need every bit of moderating you can muster.

OK granted "pooface" is always a classic (and brilliant I might add) aggressive comeback, but it is missing the passive element. Now, perhaps if you were to say........."really appreciated your last comment, it must have been a bit difficult to deliver so eloquently with a tidbit of poo on your face". ding ding round 2 for penne, hey you guys awake here?

I've heard knuckle dragging can be quite bothersome, have you ever wrapping them?

Yes, at times I am a bit of a knuckle-dragger, I do seem to be forever buying new gloves for protection. I am delighted that some people recognise my debilitating condition and deem it necessary to illuminate the fact in full view of the entire forum which benefits me greatly by facilitating my social integration. As my dear old dad used to say “have broad shoulders son” and now because of the many years of unintentional ridicule I am built like two separate gorillas!

I once had to look after two gorillas but they talked too much.

Well that might be so Mr Red White and Blue (rhymes with) you dirty cockatoo and I sincerely apologise for the latter unintentional remark but I was distracted by Nef Yoo’s reference to poo and as a consequence I became ensnared by word endings sounding like “oo” of which you used three too, “to”, “two” and “too”, which on this occasion does not equal six but reminds me of the story of the potty mouthed parrot recently found in Melbourne that talks more than the two separate gorillas remarked above.

Which said, reminds me of the Mynah birds at Waddington Manor, where they have so many American visitors to the aviary that the birds say, in an American accent "what sort is that? what sort is that? what sort is that?" and so on. I won't mention the cockatoo as I might get blamed for too many twos.
