"Ruddy" is an intensive used in British English in replace of "damn," "bloody," and similar euphemisms.



But not by Brits. It is the equivalent of saying "radical" and claiming it is still used by Americans.

Only in a place like India would someone think that the word is still in fashion. Our verified British people like Malleus who cuss quite often never resort to such terms for a reason.

I'm sure I can also find people stuck in the 80s who say things are totally rad.

Do you mean "First, my grammar is better than your grammar, but, under your ruddy rules, you're allowed to make mistakes, because you are a great writer"?
Of course not. Do you think I'm ruddy illiterate?

By the way, "ruddy" is not a common Brit expression.
That just proves you know shit about the UK, but we knew that already.

This has been pointed out by quite a few people.
Who? Links please.

Aaah! I'm sure you're a lovely and loving couple.

and heard all of the standard vulgar expressions. Ruddy is not there.

So Malleus doesn't use it hence nobody does? That seems a shithead deduction.
QUOTE
Only someone from India would make such a basic mistake.
Even if I grant your stupid claim that it's a mistake, how do you deduce that it's only funny wogs from India who would make that mistake? What about funny wogs from Nigeria or Tobago?
QUOTE
Only someone from India could have missed the obvious sarcasm found in my repeating your claim.
Translation: "I made another total balls-up, so I've made this stupid attempt to cover it up. I have not a shred of bloody evidence that you're in India and a simple check of the timing of your posts would show you're not, but I'll keep saying that anyway because I'm such a fuckwit that I can never admit I'm wrong."

The Joy: You're a pillar of sense and sanity, but put a thousand authoritative sources in the balance against Ottava's insane pigheadedness and guess how Ottava says the scales have tipped!

You prove that you are illiterate because you would not want the version that is grammatically correct. You speak in constant sentence fragments and with syntactical errors common to India. I don't know why you hate your country so much that you would refuse to admit that you are from there. After all, they should be more ashamed of being connected to you than you to them.

Everyone here knows that you know shit about English grammar. I suggest that you read a textbook for 13 year olds.

So far in this thread, you have not said one thing - one ruddy thing - remotely relevant to the thread topic. Why do you keep posting here when you don't give a shit about the purpose of this site?

Indcidentally, if you can do simple arithmetic (which I doubt), work out the time in London and in New Delhi, and then tell me that the fact that I often post around this time is more consistent with being in India than in London. I assume you'll tell me I stay up all night just to annoy you.

Editing to note that this is my 100th posting, and in those posts I have made vastly more contributions relevant to the purpose of this site than Ottava has in several thousand.

Actually, your time matches up nicely with a regular schedule in India. However, my timing matched up far more consistently for the UK. Not a coincidence. I do like how you suddenly used commas and complete sentences. I guess you finally realized that your real identity was poking through.

What a fuckwit! laugh.gif A regular schedule is a regular schedule, whatever time zone you think I'm in. It's just that if you think I'm in India you'd have to suppose I often post at around 3am. Except you don't realise that because you're too much of a shithead to know what time zone India is in or how to do simple sums.

What's sudden about it, dimwit? Just look through my old posts. Are you trying to lay ground for admitting I'm English and better educated than you?

Really? So you don't think there is a difference between a regular schedule regardless of timezones? No one can be that stupid, so you must be trolling.

Your post is at 5:44 AM EST, which I've shown to be able to do quite easily. In India, that would be 4:14 PM. Do you think people in India are unable to edit during the afternoon? o.O No, you don't. You know it is possible from you being able to edit from India at that time. You are just trolling again.

Ruddy hell! If there were an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for fuckwittery, you'd win by a mile. I posted yesterday at 9.48pm GMT (do you know what that stands for?) which is 3.18am Indian time. It is now 8.44pm GMT or 2.14am Indian time. Lots of my posts are at this sort of time, but you've never noticed. laugh.gif

Of course there can't be any ruddy difference between one thing. You have to have two things before you can have a difference. No one can be that stupid, so you must be trolling.

Let me explain in a style appropriate for 13 year olds. If I always post exactly every twelve hours, that would be a regular schedule, right? For me, it could be say 8am and 8pm GMT. If you imagined I was in California, you'd think I was posting at midnight and noon, still a regular schedule, right? If you imagined I was in New York, you'd think I was posting at 3am and 3pm, still a regular schedule, right? And of course if you were stupid enough to imagine I was in India, you'd think I was posting at 1.30pm and 1.30am, still a regular schedule, right?

Do you see now?

2 AM is not astounding. This is also not your normal posting time. You are rarely out beyond 12 PM EST. Most of your posts come from mid-afternoon India time. You tried to change your habits after busted, but still can't do that well.

You aren't fooling anyone.

QUOTE

No. A regular schedule is wake up at 7 AM and go to bed at midnight or something similar. Of course someone from India would not understand such idioms.

Once again, you're proving you can't speak bloody English. "Regular schedule" means getting up and going to bed at the same time every day. Words do not mean "whatever I, the great and marvellous Ottava, believe that it is currently expedient that they should mean". You're not ruddy Humpty Dumpty, and the sooner you realise that, the sooner we can get back to discussing the very important subject of this thread, a thread you have completely wrecked.

You aren't British no matter how hard you try to game it now. The timezone thing was pointed out a while ago. The timing is not inconsistent with someone from India. It is obvious that you would only come on during late morning or early mid-day British. You have a limited time frame, which suggests that you work (possibly in Mumbai, possibly elsewhere) and then get home.

There is nothing to be ashamed of in being from India. I don't know why you hate yourself so much and are so embarrassed by it. It does give you a nice excuse for your near consistent mistakes in just about everything when it comes to language and culture. You should be proud of it.

Hurrah, 100% bloody right. I work at my job here in London, and then go home. I bet you're jealous because you don't have a job and can't afford your own home.

Which mistakes? confused.gif As you know, you make more grammar mistakes than I do, and even exacerbate it by trying to make wrong "corrections". I have never ever made a single ruddy mistake about British culture on this site. If you say I have, either you're lying out of your arse or you're just confirming that, as we all know here, you know absolute shit about Britain.

Your regular timing on here would have been between 8 AM and 2 PM in Mumbai time. That was pointed out several times. Just because you tried to change it up some for this thread after you realized how embarrassingly consistent you were being and how much evidence you provided to show your real location does not mean that the previous evidence no longer exists.

It is incredible that you hate yourself so much that you would deny your own nation. How sad.



By the way:

QUOTE

You know, you don't even use it as it is actually used in the UK. You are the equivalent of someone using "rad" instead of "radical." So, so sad. At least if you used the out dated expression in a proper way you wouldn't come off as embarrassing as you do. When The Joy pointed out that the the idiocracy site accused you of being Poetlister they were being quite generous. At least he knew cultural idioms.

There is a pause while Ottava wonders if this is a quotation and if so, who said it. Ottava looks it up, and finds it is, but since the person who said it never owned a printing press, Ottava dismisses the quotation as not notable.

Ottava next considers whether to accuse Detective of being a sockpuppet of Retrospect, but then remembers that Detective is undeniably English and indeed studied at Christ Church, Oxford.

Detective was pointed out as being under the same sock master as Retrospect before November. You and he made a fuss about it. It was pointed out a few times recently. You also made a fuss about it then. Now you are pretending like the accusation was never made before.

And unless you put up transcripts, making a claim about going to a college is meaningless.



Put up your accounts and proof of identification and you can be believed. My personal information has been well posted here. So if you want to seem like an individual with a background, go ahead and meet the burden of evidence.

This thread, after I accused you of not fitting British time in other threads. Even this post doesn't fit a real British schedule. You really f'ed it up big time. Maybe you should spend more time with curry than trolling this forum.


By the way, your trying too hard really exposes you - 10 AM? 11 PM? You are jumping around various times instead of sticking to the almost consistent 1-2 hour time frame you were on before. Eventually, the call center will know that you are using your work computer inappropriately.
