"I hope you get reincarnated as a dingbat...."

Why? Need a mate?

einfach nicht beachten diese Schlampe. Früher oder später verschwindet sie dann schon...

Wetten das? Unkraut stirbt nicht so einfach! Sie werden sehen. Sie ist einfach eine Giftzwergin.

Can't expect class from Bill but really, this is like two little elementary school kids speaking about a third one in Pig Latin.

DrFaust - 27 Sep 2009 // 12:38:30


Sorry for you, this is not Pig Latin, it is the language of Kant & Goethe.

Okay, I was wrong about expecting some semblance of standards, apparently.

And wrong about expecting you to understand the concept of analogy or words that signify analogy, such as "like".

WW is another professional sideline critic. She seldom posts anything contributory, but she's always ready with snide criticism. The only real difference between her and Nellie is the level of vocabulary.

DrFaust - 27 Sep 2009 // 13:02:28


And I was wrong to imagine that you might understand the concept of talking to one person and not to a crowd of people in the language both of you speak as a native language, and not in a foreign language.

Since my message was for Bill and not for you, just keep quiet, ok?

DrFaust - 27 Sep 2009 // 13:07:09


right, at least she is not as vulgar as Nellie.

I am new here, but my impression is that at least 50% of the people here are a bit weird to say the least. Obviously many of them have nobody to talk to in their lives, and they also don't have any communication skills. Must be a damn hard life for them. Pity.

You're wrong on one point. German isn't my native language. English is. But I've put in the effort to learn German, I use it every day, and actually my English correspondence is limited to other English speakers.

You failed to mention that German is also the language of Hermann Hesse, Hauf, the Grimm brothers, Richard Wagner, Theodor Storm, u.a. Also such works as "Der Ring der Niebelungen".

Its a beautifully expressive language, and I love it. An apt comparison is that there are several words for females. In descending order of respectability:


Picturesque expressions abound. My favorite is "Geputzt wie ein Pfingstochse".

It's taken me a while to remember the name of the author, but Klausewitz' treatise on war is stll a textbook in military academies.

Fausted (I guess you don't really get this otherwise you'd never say I wouldn't be as vulgar as Nellie),

How old are you? Do you really understand what it means to post a comment on a public forum? Can you really not grasp that if everyone is granted viewing and commenting privileges, everyone will be able to read and comment. If you want people to not read or comment, take it to IM or phone.

Have I suddenly been transported to the fifth century?

If you understand and know the above, the other explanation is that you are trying to make it obvious that you are talking about Nellie (and it is obvious, since some of us have studied German) which is where my kids on the playground parallel comes into view.

Speaking in German here does not make you cryptic or educated or anything more than a silly little boy who sniffed out another idiot and is rolling around in the mud with him.

At least Nellie is an obvious troll and Bill is a certified moron. You have no excuse.

WickedWitch - 27 Sep 2009 // 13:54:22


Right, this is the first go-to of every forum newbie - those who argue with me must not have lives even though I have one but I am just so special.

The next is implying we are ugly/fat/frigid. (Strange comes close to that but you have to try harder during that stage.)

You can do it. I believe in you.

See what I mean? In her mind, NOBODY is as perfect as she is. It's this characteristic attitude of imagined superiority that makes her so irksome. She's not short on intelligence, but certainly manners.
