Yeah Crystal, hopefully we can put all this behind us soon.

I am thinking of taking the cover off old girl. The sound and smell of a blown BMW will take my mind off of it all. It’s been about 2 months.

We can still talk about BMW’s here right? Don’t want to offend anybody.

If it pleases your highness, Happy, you can talk about anything that tickles your fancy. Just qualify it with a contribution for the virus discussion.

Not really sure how offensive my comment was. So I posted the whole exchange here. But like I said, apology was offered, yet u continue to hold grudges.
This was after your fake apology. You never apologized. I was not hurt, just annoyed at how hypocritical people are at times. So by the time you start making additional condescending remarks, just shows more about your character.

Then about my nickname. I had already expressed to you that, I was not interested in communicating with you. But yet you continued to push, “anything at all”!?.

Yet you post here telling other members how to behave, when your in no position to do so. Maybe you need to take your own advice.

Again, YOU NEVER APOLOGIZED! You used the word “sorry” in a, “sorry, to bad for you” context. Again, CONDESCENDING.

Although I wasn't trying to apologize on my first reply to Happy. I just wanted the conversation to steer back to cv instead of the endless bickering it was spiraling towards.
So tell me, how do you steer the conversation back to the virus when you are a part of the very problem you are complaining about.

It did not end with your fake apology. Then came the “highness” remark, and then my name.

Again, you post here telling other members how to behave, when your in no position to do so. Maybe you need to take your own advice.

I don’t hold grudges, I am only pointing out inconsistencies in your posts. You may need to change your approach. Otherwise, “you are” going to be perceived as a hypocrite.

I can see you're not going to let it go.

You jokingly said to Crystal on a post: "... We can still talk about BMW’s here right? Don’t want to offend anybody."

Then I replied: " If it pleases your highness, Happy, you can talk about anything that tickles your fancy. Just qualify it with a contribution for the virus discussion."

Then you replied with: "Ahh.. no.. that’s ok. Condescending chatter is not my flavor."

At which point I replied with: "Is Happy a reference to Jon Favreau's character in the Marvels movie? He's a pretty cool cat.

I don't mean anything nasty Happy. But I appreciate any contribution on the topic, anything at all."

Me praising your nick name "Happy" and liking it to the well-liked "Happy" in the Avengers was my attempt at trying to softening the blow of calling you "Your highness"

Not sure why you feel the need to keep on pounding it home like you've been wronged.

My previous posts before your exchanges with BC pointed out the need to get back on topic.

Which you have conveniently disregarded the entire time.

Anyway, you can continue to call me whatever you like. And keep holding that grudge.

It tells me a lot more about you than me, I think.

Come to think of it. The "Your Highness" comment was back on page 54, 6 days ago.

Way to go, Happy. You have successfully turned this cv thread about you again.

Again, no grudge here. Just a solid discernment to your character, I’m sure.

I’ll stoop to your level just for kicks.

You’re a joke!

Happy:

So I reviewed our exchanges back on Page 56, I honestly believe I've apologized. Even though i think you're pretty small minded for holding on to such a remark as "your highness".

Is this a term you're pretty sensitive about? Let me know why. Because it's really a very small jab in my opinion.

If it's a serious insult to you, let me know.

I would offer to apologize again if it were.

Anyway, I offer that we continue this exchange via pm so we don't take up other's space and time on a thread that was meant for cv informations instead of a pissing match thread between forum members.

I do not agree with you calling me a hypocrite, just to be clear.

But you are free to think otherwise. Doesn't affect me one way or the other.

This virus nearly wiped out my entire family, and this thread has posts by some bitching about the name of the virus. Making judgements that some are racist. Dragging me in to the nonsense.

You are a part of that small minded bitching. Agreeing with posts that referred to me as a racist.

You have not genuinely apologized, you have no plan to apologize. You are not capable, otherwise you would have already.

No thank you on the PM offer.

I started this thread to offer people information on the virus. I like to think I've done so on numerous occasions.

It's not a prefect thread, but needed information regarding various aspects of the virus has been presented by multiple members throughout the thread.

BC, crystal, stephenVA, andrew, upallnight, eod, and others have all contributed.

I think opening a dialogue about this situation that we're all in helps some of us here to reconcile their fears and anxieties towards the unknown this disease brings.

At least that's the hope.

I resent you belittling the efforts of all these members, and turning it all about you.

This may sound harsh, but it's not all about you.

Maruzo, it’s not the highness comment.

You agreed to a post with a suggestion that I am racist. As OP, I looked to you to settle the matter, and you responded with, “sorry Happy. I am not a mediator”. It was a polite way to say, “too bad”. That’s not an apology.

All the comments after are just childish jabs. Myself included.

The title of this thread is, “Good Information in times of need”. How does arguing about the name of the virus produce any good information? When you started this thread I largely avoided it. This is a vehicle forum.

I gave some information pertaining to the virus and the effects of it. I even tried to meditate to the best of my ability when things were, in my opinion getting off topic. But, then I was attacked.

I never tried to make this thread about me. There is a reason some of us wanted this tread to go. Its toxic!
