I should have my head examined for contributing to Internet Forums in the first place.
But since I foolishly started this, on I go --
| In my initial post I clearly said I understand how you felt, and there was NOTHING snide in it or any later post. I sincerely meant what I said: I have better things to get upset about than edited TV shows on DVD. |
It's difficult to accept one's own snideness, but your message that most people have worse things to worry about was certainly snide. There's no other word for it.
snide, adj. Derogatory in a malicious, superior way.
You weren't teribly malicious, but you were certainly superior, or "on a high horse" as it was so aptly put.
I'm sorry you don't see that. I'm also sorry you don't mind watching Doris Day in hyperdrive.
I'm not going to transfer money from my bank account to a company that puts out product which is unacceptable. Now, it clearly isn't unacceptable to those who don't know any better or don't care -- but it's totally unacceptable to those who should care the most
, to those who should have been the first
to buy the product, and who end up being the ones who would be the last
to buy it.
And I have a major announcement here: I don't want to shock you, but I, too, have MANY better things to get upset about than edited TV shows on DVD. And I write about those things on OTHER forums! THIS is the place, as Wendy put it, to vent about DVDs. I came here looking for people who feel the same way I do -- and I certainly found them. But someone always has to get snide................
