I can't believe I got a warning for posting in that Straws v Bunsen thread. All I said was I WASN'T going to be getting involved!
Untrue. What you said was:
I'm not getting involved. Bunsen uses every opportunity to try and get me banned and I've been warned by the mods! I'm going to piss Bunsen off more by being a good boy and not getting banned than if I be stupid and start insulting him. Take that Bunsen! Your plan to get me banned has FAILED. Besides, I can't argue with somebody who has me on ignore, or supposedly has me on ignore anyway. I think he just pretends to have me on ignore so he doesn't have to respond to my statements which he knows he can't argue against because I am superior.
If you had stopped typing after the first sentence, your statement above would be true, and you would also not have received a warning. But noooooo, you had to keep sniping at Bunsen, and now we've all seen the consequences of that.
Why didn't ben_german get a warning for starting the thread in the first place and trying to stir the pot?
1) What makes you so sure he didn't?
2) Whether he did or not does not absolve you of your actions.
