But I started a debate with my "opponent" on the crisis in Syria. She gave one fallacious argument and then it stopped there. But next I stumbled on her posts on the ACC Thread which I normally never open - which she knows - only to humiliate me on my stance in this conflict while she refused to discuss it on the Syria thread. If I have something to tell people I always say it straight, not behind the back.

Besides I'm convinced that my stance on this conflict is utterly right and that hers is very dangerous and irresponsible. But I'm open to discussion. Not her.

can honestly say I know absolutely nothing about you or about anything you are talking about.

was merely commenting on getting the LL spot, then being drawn against the No. 1 seed (which I've since been told was meant to happen, rendering the UL concept useless anyway).

but, um... yeh.

I think you'll do very well in the next round also

Unlucky draw for R3, though, getting the 2nd seed. Well, at least it'll stay in the family, won't it?

I understood it wasn't meant to be a perfectly symmetric draw where the ranking sum of every match is 257, it was just that the program Johnny Groove used wasn't a true randomizer. It's not that easy to get a perfectly random draw, while maintaining proper distance between seeds. The way I do it is relatively cumbersome, so I don't blame JG for using a program to do this.

Just to make things clear, I hadn't a clue whether you read the ACC thread or not and I don't know why you would assume that I knew that you normally didn't open it. My ACC comments were equally mean towards all the posters that I voted for and they were made in the spirit of the contest, which, as you know, isn't a nice contest to begin with. I'm sorry I hurt your feelings (which you implied by saying I humiliated your stance on the crisis); in my own defence, you called me a salafist lover (the original comment was censored so it might have been something worse was it 'fucker' or something?) in PopCon which isn't the kind of contest where such comments get thrown around. Doesn't that also qualify as 'talking behind my back' under your definition? In any case, I was a little shocked by the comment at first but I laughed it off after a while, so no hard feelings.

As for why I didn't reply in the Syria thread, honestly I don't remember. I don't remember seeing a reply from you but I wasn't looking very hard; I was probably preoccupied with something else at the time. Just to be clear, it wasn't like I refused to debate; I just didn't go back and read the thread, but somehow your post stuck with me. I think my stance on every issue that I take a stance on is utterly right, so of course you would think that yours is utterly right. I'm open to debating this provided you keep it civil.

Again, sorry about my comments. I'll tone it down next year...

I LOVED Kevin from B&S!!! Omg he was like the reason I kept watching when the show became really crappy (but even he couldn't keep me watching after the storylines became crap). I HAVE to check out this show then. Thanks, I have something new to watch.

That video: Kevin was definitely my favourite character in the show.

I don't think I even watched the last season of that show, but I loved it when I started! Kevin my favorite too I never responded to you the other day when you asked what else I watch. I was on my phone and typing on my phone is

ANYWAY, I watch Dexter (though I'm behind), Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy I used to watch Boardwalk Empire but I'm pretty much 2 seasons behind, I'm half a season behind on Modern Family, Parks and Recreation. I watch a lot of the performance type reality shows like X-Factor and the Voice too

I fall so behind on my shows because I have to battle my family for the television and my mother watches an endless stream of NCIS/CSI every location/Castle type things

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

dexter is currently the best show on television with season 4 still being the greatest season. i would say this season so far has pan out at well. i thought the first season of games of thrones was boring, but season 2 definitely brought the spark the show need. i can't wait until the new season starts.
