    Quoted from pezpunk:

    Asian Americans asking you not to call them Orientals is ruining the country? Really? You don't think your freakout is a little hyperbolic?

    OK man once again you are misquoting people. He NEVER said that. Stop being a dick.

    Quoted from pezpunk:

    What's not to like?

    I'm sure all the things "destroying this country" fit nicely into his biased worldview too.

    Nothing he enjoys needs to change, though.

    Pez your PC shit is not going to fly here, now go away!

    I see two-three people slamming Pezpunk. Pezpunk is alright. It's not about being offended for other people, it's about wanting to be around people that attempt to respect others around them.

    BS bro, I can't let that slide because then people on here will start to believe the nonsense. Of course it's important to respect everyone you deal with if at all possible. However, what pezpunk is describing is people getting way too sensitive about the smallest of things when they should let it roll off of their backs and just move forward. None of what he says is preventing anyone from life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    Kind of like you, getting all offended about how you want to be able to offend people?

    I see your point, as in the majority of the PC crowd is such a respectful bunch towards others LOL.

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Can you get me a bottle of that Mezcal with the Skull on the label??

    i can, if i can find it.
    think i can bring back 1 bottle in checked-in bag? but... once in the states, not sure i'm legally able to ship
    i'm headed south again in a few weeks.

    Quoted from Darcy:

    You can call your carpet what ever you want. For most purposes the carpets or rug that are made from regions starting in Morocco, and stretching east as far as China & Tibet. These rugs are called Oriental, some say 'Persian Rug' just to give them an easy identifier.
    If you have an older oriental rug, you might want to get it appraised. The appraiser should also be able to identify the area where it was woven.

    I know a Mexican Oriental rug appraiser

    Dude you and Eggbert have been the ones slinging unmitigated insults all thread. I've been completely respectful in my responses.

    Did you ask your rug appraiser if he prefers to be called Mexican-Asian?

    Well, I've got to say that I agree Pezpunk seems like a good guy, and his heart is in the right place. I think his viewpoint on this is f**king retarded, but I respect his right to be wrong.

    #113 3 years ago

    PS - Pez really needs to start a Pezpunk vs. Everybody deathmatch on this topic where things can really get fun.

    #114 3 years ago

    Declares war on those who do not bribe local police and local government officials. Such a corrupt country.

    So much anger. Really, you would be better off taking a little break from the keyboard. Friendly advice.

    Quoted from pezpunk:

    I will never understand why old white dudes throw such temper tantrums about this kind of thing

    Nothing but respectful to us "Old White Dudes".

    #117 3 years ago
    Quoted from Taxman:

    Did you ask your rug appraiser if he prefers to be called Mexican-Asian?

    he's very confused about the entire situation as well.
    he prefers to be called a Texican who makes money on gringos obsessed with appraising oriental products.
    ..after he gets their money, we go have amazing tex-mex enchiladas and laugh about them

    Sorry. I grew up in the 70s and 80s when EVERYBODY was the R word. I'm a product of my upbringing.

    I've ignored Pez weeks ago so I only have others comments to go on, but I can guess what he's doing. I'm convinced he does this shit purely for trolling purposes. Every time he chimes in with his PC wisdom it's an instant thread derail. Never fails.

    The only reason the thread derails is because of Sirs who instead of saying "oh they don't like being called orientals? Ok" want to cry about how America is ruined, their freedom of speech is being taken away by liberals, etc.

    #130 3 years ago

    Oh my, I can't believe Pezpunk has trolled another thread to white knight for a race/gender/ sexual orientation that wasn't offended by a passing comment. That never happens! Ever!

    Hey admins, want to know why some of us won't donate to Pinside? It's because people like this always get threads locked and people booted from topics after they come in and start all the shit in the first place. All the while hurling insults themselves while seldom being reprimanded for it.

    I've taken dozens of insults in this thread and I think the closest I've come to insulting anyone is using the phrase "old white dudes". The insults don't bother me, but don't pretend I'm not the one taking them, or that I'm the one dishing them out. Thanks.

    Well said. I would give you 50 thumbs up if i could. He always weasles his way out looking like the good guy. And Pez do not tell me to take any friendly advice, you are not my friend.

    I can be friendly to people without being their friend. It's pretty easy and refreshing, actually.

    That's bullshit. Maybe you're not doing it in this thread, but you've done it in plenty others. And just because you don't use certain inflamitory words doesn't mean you're not insulting people. Making suggestions about people's intelligence or accusations of bigotry based on a snippet of an Internet forum response are also insulting. And your passive aggressive way of doing it only escalates the situation. Every. Damned. Time.

    You could always PM a person who says something that offends you, but you instead take every opportunity to public ally grandstand and show us all how morally superior you are to us. You prod for a r action and then fall on your back, play the victim and then point your finger and yell, "look everyone the bad man is hurting my feelings". And for the most part, the admins stick up for you. That's the truth.

    Wow it should be really easy for you to find lots of examples of me calling other people names. I mean I could easily cite a dozen examples in this thread of insults made directly at me. I am not complaining, just pointing out the hypocrisy in that complaint.

    #143 3 years ago

    I can't keep up with PC

    #144 3 years ago

    Sooo...does this mean that Mexico is a good market for flipper pinball or not?

    How about the Mexican pinball?
    Pez your avatar is cool, but give it up already. You're annoying and probably every post you've made here is irrelevant.

    #146 3 years ago

    I think the irrelevance started with TeeKee's comment. Since then I think it's been an interesting discussion as to where a few Pinsiders, myself included, stand on immigration (amongst other things). Being "a Lib", I side with Pez in these discussions. I am a human being & being such intend to prefer to treat people with respect and understanding. It's fine if folks chose not to, but if it's on a public forum and I'm reading something I disagree with I'll chime in.

    Arguments like "go away!", "scram ya wussy!", etc. are always fun. Keep it up!

    I get where he's coming from. I worked in a pretty diverse and liberal multicultural environment. I had a boss that would call some of our Asian workers "Oriental" to their face, make jokes like "look out, women driver!" when a woman would be pushing a cart through our stock room, etc. And those sort of comments did upset the people he said them to.

    I'm not sure exactly why he was walked off the job, but I know situations like that couldn't have helped him. Probably a bad environment for him to be in as he didn't really fit in, and he was tough for the rest of us to interact with, even if what he said didn't directly offend me.

    On this we absolutely agree. I'm just sick of paying for them.
