Not that I ever thought I would have to talk to you, but which flavour are you using?

You don't have to talk to me.

Plonk. Not that I ever thought I would have to get this low, but thanks for the reassurance.

Are you unaware of how insulting "Not that I ever thought I would have to talk to you" in your previous post is?
It seems to me that that was your lowest point in this exchange, not the plonk.

I'm sorry but I have no respect for you, either.

It's not about your having any respect for me or anyone else, but about your understanding that when you express your disrespect so blatantly, you will be responded to in kind.
Whether you respect me or not is of no consequence. The Earth will turn on its axis and my life will go on as usual without your respect, as will Simon's. Why do you think your respect is valuable?

I don't often read AUE feuds; so before this one really gets going and I have to avoid your names when they appear in combination, would you previously harmless fellers please explain what you've got against one another? (With a bit of luck it may all turn out to have been a Ghastly Mistake.)

I have no idea what got into Mr Khan. I have no feud with him, but he seems a bit testy today. First he insults Simon and then he declares his lack of respect for me. I hardly know the guy (I've seen his name a few times, but that's about all) and have no interest in being in a silly name-calling thread or any other kind of feud with him or anyone else. All such threads have disappeared as far as I can see, and I like it that way. I'm not involved in anything like that at the moment, and I like that too.
It's good of you to nip this one in the bud, as it were (I hardly ever get to use that expression, and it's a favorite of mine for sentimental reasons that go back to my temporary employment with a Japanese publisher of English practice books).

It's not a feud; I don't know him from Adam. But whoever he is, he is under no obligation to talk to me, as he appeared to imagine.

Yes. You have made your point.
Whether you respect me or not is of no consequence. The Earth will turn on its axis and my life will go on as usual without your respect, as will Simon's. Why do you think your respect is valuable?

I don't. But my statement was intended to serve as an indirect response to your question: I wasn't unaware of how insulting it was. I meant it. Every word. You needn't know why, perhaps, but less likely, because I don't know myself.
I don't know whether my last statement to Simon was ambiguous since it seems from your early reply or not, but it wasn't the plonk that I thought low, but my having to thank him.

That's all you needed to know, I suppose.

No, it was quite unambiguous.

You didn't have to thank me.

He didn't need to know.
