    Can't beat Shakespeare for a good insult.

    From Lear 2 ii:

    Kent calls Oswald “an eater of broken meats, a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave, a lily-livered, action-taking knave, a whoreson, a glass-gazing, super-serviceable finical rogue”, and “the son and heir of a mongrel *****: one whom I will beat into clamorous whining, if thou deniest the least syllable of thy addition.”

    If I could only like that more than just like. TES have their own version of OfSTED they call them moderators. As I am under moderation I expect this to be censored:p

    I thought you had been released and have accused @Aquamarina1234 of committing the most abominable crimes since you got out before her.

    I was threatened with moderation for disagreeing with somebody.

    Basically it's the squeaky wheels getting the attention.

    I cannot stand by and see a fair damsel (Aquamarina) in distress.
    You have besmirched our reputations, I demand satisfaction. My second will visit to discuss terms for our duel.

    Remain voters - can't think of anything worse than that.

    (Actually untrue as I was one, but just highlighting how daft the political disagreement insults are) ;)

    Socialist - "you Tory you"
    Tory - "yes, you Socialist you"

    See it's all in the interpretation or its all in your heads. :D:D

    Over the years I have discovered it is possible to disagree with someone without insulting them.
