Quote from: mr_lou on 08:48, 09 June 21Well it may vary from country to country of course, but here in Denmark everyone just pays a quarterly fee, and then has unlimited messages - including MMS.At least it's still possible to send MMS. It's still the only method I use for sending pictures.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 09:11, 09 June 21the person on the other side might get charged for receiving them
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 09:11, 09 June 21Between blu-ray and MMS, you really are stuck in a 2006 time warp.
Quote from: eto on 09:23, 09 June 21In Germany MMS is dead. Receiving them is free but sending them costs 30-39Cents per MMS. Or in other words: For the equivalent of 13-15 MMS (around 4MB) I can also get 250-500x data volume which can be used for lots of other things too.
Quote from: mr_lou on 09:27, 09 June 21You say that as if it's a bad thing.. on a forum chat about a computer from the 80s....
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 09:47, 09 June 21But apparently mr_lou seems to think it's okay to pay over the odds for certain services. There's a world of difference between enjoying games from childhood and flat out refusing to evolve out of stubbornness.
Quote from: mr_lou on 09:54, 09 June 21I'm wondering. Is it possible to post anything here on CPCwiki any longer, without being insulted by you?
Quote from: mr_lou on 09:54, 09 June 21I'm wondering. Is it possible to post anything here on CPCwiki any longer, without being insulted by you? Last time you compared my life to that of living in the Gaza Strip, because I'm not up when Xyphoe streams. Always personal attacks.It has come to the point where I'm hesitant to reply to anything here, because I know I'll be met with these kind of replies. This time too. And as usual, here we are. Then I much prefer Discord alternatives.So @Gryzor, either these personal attacks will stop - today. Or I'm out.
Quote from: Gryzor on 10:14, 09 June 21Missed the Gaza post, doesn't sound too sensible or sensitive. But this comment here, not sure it's an insult?
Quote from: Gryzor on 11:30, 09 June 21Eh, 9-10pm is too late for me too and it can be so for a variety of reasons - mainly, that's movie time for me and the missus and not me-watching-retro-vids time, but having to explain myself is not something that's needed. But Gaza is not, I feel, something to joke about under most circumstances...
Quote from: Gryzor on 11:45, 09 June 21Yeah not sure how an offense from 2 years ago could be dredged up; for me Gaza is just not joke material. Let's talk about Gazza instead?
Quote from: Gryzor on 11:45, 09 June 21Yeah not sure how an offense from 2 years ago
Quote from: eto on 12:10, 09 June 21Not 2 years ago. 4 months ago. https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/other-retro/list-of-english-amstrad-cpc-twitch-streamers/msg198050/#msg198050
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 12:13, 09 June 21Also there was no hint of offence taken from him in his response either
Quote from: eto on 12:28, 09 June 21Hard to say it's really an insult, but (seen from a third person perspective and just my personal opinion) it's unnecessary picking on someone and disrespectful. If anyone would ask if my home is like Gaza I would also ignore it, even if I find it way off and absolutely not funny. And if in the next discussion (even if 4 months apart) I would be called stubborn, just based on what I share as personal opinions/thoughts, I would probably reject any further conversation with that person. I wasn't aware that "ignore" is an option, but yes, that would be the right tool for me then. Not because I feel offended but because I think it's a waste of time and energy to deal with attempted offence. Leaving the forum doesn't make sense for me, but then, as it's very, very personal how an offence is experienced, it's his decision and his anger (to some degree) understandable.
Quote from: Gryzor on 13:25, 09 June 21Thanks for the link and the correction.Well, he did offer that 10pm is after bed time which let's face it, is sure to attract a light-hearted comment or two. I honestly don't see that as an insult (though the Gaza thing is still pretty uncomfortable). I try to apply it to me - if someone laughed at me for going to bed at 10pm I'd probably say "yeah, let's see you laughing when you get a toddler". Seriously, I think it's unbelievable we're splitting hair like this.
