That's ruddy Ottava logic.

I'm not sure why my logic would be brown.

Don't keep flaunting your ruddy ignorance of English. Obviously any native English speaker would know that "ruddy" isn't "brown".

And The Joy, that proves Ottava here isn't user Ottava Rima. Although Ottava Rima is a total shithead, he does write English correctly, at least most of the time.


Funny, because Graham McNeill and other dime novel writers in England all use it only to refer to a color.

As I pointed out, no one actually uses it in the way you pretend. You are a bad parody. You might as well claim to be Australian and add "Crikey" to the end of all of your sentences.

Crikey, mates.

Plus ca change, plus le meme chose, mes amis.

I looked at WR today, just because the button is there, and I see this, Ottava defending a stupid comment he made, endlessly. I knew exactly what was intended by "ruddy," I've seen or heard the usage many times. However, I looked it up. Yup. It's an intensifier, and "bloody" would be the origin, an obvious substitution.

However, I'm also sure that this Ottava is the real one, i.e., JP. Such a dedicated combination of intelligence and stubborn stupidity is rare, and he's had this account for a long time.

Abd, you are dense. This sock of Poetlister tries to make it seem like he isn't the same as the other socks by overuse of "ruddy." British people don't actually use the term in the way he does anymore (as I said before, it would be similar to hearing "rad" used in the US). However, he uses it in every post and sometimes multiple times. Selina vanished for the time, so the Poetlister socks have free reign, which is to everyone's detriment.

There is only one person, and I stated you were he before.

Also, I proposed far harder restrictions than John did each time I sent in a ban appeal and got laughed at. ArbCom doesn't go for restrictions nor have they even attempted to put any together.

Firstly, they would use it to refer to a colour, not a color. Secondly, the fact that some writers choose to restrict themselves to one meaning of a word doesn't prove that other meanings, well documented in dictionaries, have ceased to exist.

Thirdly, due to your inability to understand English, you have of course missed the point that ruddy means red. Do you know the difference between red and brown?

No, because I am not British. You don't offer snide "corrections" to back up your sock. Instead, you realize that socking is stupid and your harassment is stupid and cut it out.

Actually, you fell into a trap and admitted that the term actually means a color and not "damned" or whatever silly notion you tried to push on your sock account.

Looks like Ottava thinks Jay is Poetlister. While it's not impossible -- it's quite unlikely, for reasons that I don't care to disclose. Lets just say the age of the account and certain actions of the user. I know Poetlister fairly well. Not him, my judgment.

Only Ottava could keep a straight face through this insanity. Ruddy has a number of meanings, and in context, it meant the same as "bloody," or "damned," for which it is a common euphemism. And of course there is another usage, as in ruddy complexion. Reddish. Certainly not "brown."

Of course, there may never have been a real Ottava Rima, only an elaborate troll.

Wikipedians might still read this, and anyone seeing Ottava argue here would realise that he hasn't recovered, he's crazier than ever. But maybe they need some more fodder for the cannons over there.

I had an occasion to look at some business on Wikipedia, and started looking at histories and contributions and sock reports and, damn! it could have stolen the whole day if I hadn't caught myself.

Just saw, for the first time, King of Hearts. I wrote years ago that being blocked on Wikipedia was a promotion. Certainly it was an elevation.

G'night.

That is true on both counts. I am never snide, and I have no socks. Thank you for your perceptive comment.

As others have pointed out, there are words in English that have more than one meaning; "ruddy" is one of these.

I appreciate that you do not speak English very well.

According to http://www.translatebritish.com/index.php, the word "ruddy" means "fucking," in British slang. wtf.gif

Do you not realize that I do not care? The "realise" and similar mistakes is how you exposed yourself as Poetlister. You really need to try harder.

It isn't used by actual British people anymore. I can point out to many novelists from the UK that use it primarily as a color, because that is the primary meaning over there just as it is in the States.

And seriously, how do you not remember who I said you were? I would PM you to remind you, but there is only one person in that thread that you could match up. The person was a highly respected content editor and also a member of this forum.

Gilbert's response to being told they meant the same thing was: "Not at all, for that would mean that if I said that I admired your ruddy countenance, which I do, I would be saying that I liked your bloody cheek, which I don't."

Look, fuckwit. "Realise" is the majority spelling in Britain. Even a Yank would know that, so it's more proof if any were needed that you're not a Yank. Where are you really?

And this dimwit is pretending to be a failed PhD student! The claim (which may be true) that many novelists don't use a word in a well-attested meaning doesn't prove that the meaning is obsolete. With logic like that, you wouldn't get into any British university.
