It may even have relevance to a recent post in this very thread.
It is a way worse practice to talk about other people behind their back and discuss their particularities, especially being a complete ignorant asshat
on the subject and Not_knowing him personally
, but seeing that the issue has turned more serious, with warnings and the risk of a ban, here I go: As I have expressed in the past (and a forumite there
said more directly), I do not think that the language barrier is the main
culprit. I know/knew/did knewed people both in real life (one person) and in them interwebz (a few) with very very similar behaviour (fixation with certain subjects, seeing a clear correlation of their particular subjects of interest to every unrelated subject at hand, taking non serious comments or jokes literally -this can also be exacerbated by language differences-, expressing themselves in a convoluted, hard to follow manner, taking innocent things not directed at him as a personal attack -like with a certain forumite's thread on airlines stopping a certain model's operations, at the same time ignoring his other thread of new same model operators-, etc.). In fact, all the examples I wrote are a perfect match of the guy I know personally (just with anime, manga and videogames instead of a plane model, an airline, dates and age, etc.).
So, while of course I can't say if he has an issue/dishability/whatever the correct term for it might be (language barrier right here!) or not -reread bolded
section of first sentence, and even if I knew it would not be adequate for me to say it-, I think we
should be a little more patient just in case. Even if he is simply a thread hijacker and nothing more, there is a nice "Add to ignore list" button at the public's disposal, I don't understand why people are so bothered.
By the way, I didn't receive the PM. It seems that I'm not considered important with only 53 posts...
