My point...had the same experience.

You did hit the nail on the head as to the reason why. For my part, I simply don't respond to these kinds of comments as there is no point.

Well, you're half way there to getting it.

Oh well.

But you are correct in that all you have to dom is look at all the posts on here by southerners, to get it.

It's only joking when they say so. And they'll tell you whether you're joking or not. So let's wait till they come back, so we can know what our intentioned were.

[Feet up, waiting for reply and whisting too]

Sure. I was having some fun. You also claimed to be joking which in my book is having fun. The difference between us however is that you continued to converse with someone that you consider to be ignorant, childish, cowardly and so forth. Yet you said "I like something, I take part in it. If I'm not interested or don't like it at all; I don't get involved in it." So either you are liking such things, or your words mean nothing. Your choice. In comparison, I hold no similar ill feelings towards you as there is no reason for me to have such thoughts based on what you have posted here. It's not as if any of this is new to me.

In fact.....

Throughout this topic you have put forth the idea that some Southerners resent transplants for moving down here and therefore, this must be the reason they won't avail themselves of your fine personality, witty smalltalk, and wisdom. It doesn't make sense so there must be something wrong with them. They must be resenting you because they can never match your accomplishments, good looks and educational level and furthermore blame you for their state in the world. Sure that must be it.

Hmm maybe not. It's not resentment, it's nothing of the sort. It's best explained by this anecdote, which I am paraphrasing that an old Southern gentleman wearing a white seersucker suit and Panama hat told me long ago.....
"Boy, there are two kinds of Yankees moving to the South. It's best you know the difference and act accordingly. The first kind is a fine person, deserving of friendship. Treat them like you would treat any good neighbor. The second kind however is the opposite of the first. (I will leave out the description) Now there isn't anything you can do about this as they can't help how they are. So consider them to be an opportunity. (lots of chuckling) The old joke is the South is where they once picked cotton, now they pick Yankees. Just make sure you are nice about it when you do as they will keep coming back for more. Reserve this treatment for the second kind of Yankee. You will know the difference."
Alas, the younger generation has forgotten about the being nice part.

Sir, you are quite right as I got you confused with your alter ego in this topic. An honest mistake, it's difficult to tell you two apart.

You see, you are just proving my point with the passive aggressive resentment....I offered my 2 cents to the post (of my experiences, which is my fault of course) & you critized & attacked (passively aggressively of course) every comment I made...You consistantly proved my point with each and every post...You have a chip on your shoulder...You feel us Yankees think ME Better Than YOU.

WE FIGHT EVERYONE..YADA YADA....Hulk Smash..Durr which way is up...jeez....give us a lil more credit..I dont feel I am better than anyone....never have never will...Never once Did I personally attack you..not my style..I have class..I stated your comments were childish & Your attitude was ignorant..check .but for all I know you are a terrific person and even apologized to the forum..but you wouldnt quit..check out some of the other forums out there on the net...comments made by southerners that "we" should all go home...or the most ignorant thing I have ever seen is "Im glad 9-11 happended to NY" from a particular southerner....sure we feel the love!

I have spent too much time on this, I have better things to do with my time, like rip out my eyes with two number 2 pencils...peace luv & harmony!

Well, seeing double is what happens when one talks outm of both sides of their mouths.

You'll see a lot of that.
