    We do use curry to mean certain dishes that come from (or are strongly influenced by) certain Asian countries (South Asia but also Thai, Malaysian even Japanese )

    GulyŠs /Goulash is not a curry and nobody would refer to it as such
    I'm learning here.
    I'm not in a position to tell you anything about curry in England.
    Was only a bit confusing there for a moment, what actually "I had a curry", what that might be in England. That's all.
    Probably uncertain what English people mean with curry because curry in itself is like the broadest thing on earth. It's not like salt, ginger or cilantro, being one thing. Curry is mix and can be basically anything as long as it involves turmeric.

      Did you really cover everything there? I'm sure you can come up with a couple more things if you focus with your pointing finger another minute. It's really not up to your own standrads coming with only four. I bet you can come up with at least three more. How about Maoriphobia? You missed that one.

        I'd actually not give much of a shit if it happened. But who's the greater prick here now between the two of us? It's far from the first time you're fishing for a ban of me. Grow the fuck up. What are you? 11 years? "I won't play if he's playing" territory.

          Snake, you can ban me. Send a special diploma to WOM after. One with unicorns, golden stars and the lot.

            I'm going to still suggest that it's you. You've earned it. For some reason you're drawn to posting about race, gender, ethnicity and religion, and you're really, really shit at doing so. So stop fucking doing it. Whatever issue you're trying to 'work out', stop fucking doing it here. You're fucking offensive. And the pattern is so unerringly predictable as to be pathetic.

            Page 1 of this very thread..."ooo...I'm a white supremacist....I'm not black so I must be...I'll apologize for all my ancestors...". What the actual fuck? What's your game?

            It's far from the first time you're fishing for a ban of me.
            And it sure as hell won't be the last. Stop with the race / religion / ethnicity baiting and I won't bother with you. But slip into your usual, predictable and all-too-inevitable shit and I will loudly and vigorously petition for your banning. It should have happened about three flounces ago. Much better people have been banned for far fucking less. Frankly, I'm a bit ashamed of myself for not doing it already, or at the very least resigning in protest of you.

              There actually is an "Ignore User" function now since the upgrade, loth though I am to ever use it.

                It's tempting. It really is. But if you get a fucking loudmouth racist in your local, you don't ignore him. You let him know that this isn't the place for his shit. And if that fails, you punch him hard in the face. And then you throw him out the front door and ban him.

                  Ignore poster is even better now. it used to be it showed the person had posted and gave you an option to see it. Now it creates weird vacuums in threads where you can't see the posts at all.

                    Thanks. And for your work in sorting all this out.

                      I consider it a way of acknowledging that I read a post without creating another post just to say so, although I do think that it might be less useful if you can't see who the likes are from. I still like the idea, because sometimes you post and you really don't know if anyone has read it if they don't reply. But I know that's probably just me and my basic insecurity.

                        Yeah, that bit about I being a white supremacist was TG being a moron here and going out of his depth to tar everyone as a racist, even Nocturnal, for fuck's sake. So I said that I must be one in his eyes, as well, because of the simple reason I asm not black.

                        But I hear you.

                        I have no problems staying away from here. You can just say so.But don't be a bloody bastard about it. All you have to do is ask, not be Stalin on the entire thing. And if you want to be a fucking liar, be so.
                        Now, fuck off!

                          I didn't say 'stay away', ya thick fuck. I said stop with the race / ethnicity / religion baiting. Just...you know...avoid that whole topic. It's a fucking minefield, and you're not that good a tap dancer.

                                The ignore poster thing does work, but if y'all are going to keep quoting ignored poster in your posts, it doesn't really do me any good to ignore said poster. Just sayin'.
