In the context of this argument, NW means 'No Way' as in there's no way this argument actually is happening.

Wow... wasn't that fun boys and girls. Shall we get back on topic now.

NW is totally a compass reference in my book


No, it's not fun. Not in the least. I've learnt my lesson in that there are certain people I need to avoid communicating with from now on. But now that this whole thing has gone quiet for a few days now, with the hope that all can move on from it, it serves as a counter-productive move to bring the subject back up again, Bail.

I think you're taking the wrong lesson from this - I would have thought the more obvious one to learn is "Everybody took the piss when TumbleTower was making up pointless, ambiguous abbreviations. Don't be like TumbleTower".
Write that down in your copybook now.

Communication requires clear, unambiguous meaning. "NW" is ambiguous. You're not Tumble Tower, you're not even DVB Cornwall. If you mean network, type those ever-so-hard-to-reach extra 5 letters. If you mean north-west, use the INTERNATIONALLY AGREED COMPASS POINT ABBREVIATION for north west.

No, you actually received a number of "rtps" which is why I was here and rather than ignore them, or just remove the off-topic content that followed (which people have said they dislike) or indeed issue a warning against you, I thought I would point out publicly that enough was enough. with a subtle hint that I agreed with those rtps. and then get things back on topic.

However, that it seems wasn’t enough for you and whilst the majority of your posts are very welcome, ones off that tone are not.

NW is very weird way of saying network, NW is a compass bearing. End of. Any further posts on this topic WILL receive a warning.

Back. To. Idents.

Yes, back to idents. The only problem with that is that the Christmas idents are practically over, like this thread will be for another year soon. Oh well.

I think those are all videos from the same user though.
