Those famous insults by Cuch... What to reply?

The problem is more general - hot to react to insulting behaviour in the internet? In my opinion the best way is to ignore.

It's already better, generally you know who is speaking. The best way of course is to trust mostly your own eyes.
I tend to agree with Gamal. I pigeonhole people within the first two seconds of meeting them. Body language, tone of voice,...

I put Gamal into the entertaining, potential drinking buddy pigeonhole!

However, he does get a bit touchy when you try to cross him. I've seen this behaviour before, mostly on the few occasions I frequented a wine bar. Best just to nod and agree.

As always, just answer the question.
Epistemological questions are my favourite.

Definitely. He’s Eastern European. They would much rather be right than polite.

But he is still very entertaining company!!! And he is always right.

Or, just as with many words, British and EE definitions of politeness may differ :-)

Wait; between his handle, his accusation of my being racist and belonging to "whities", the focus on muslim issues, and his recent link to EgyptIndependent.com, I am thinking a bit further south. Not that there is anything wrong with that...

South by Southeast, people seem more sensitive about innuendos.

He does feel the need to be right. Doesn't mean I would buy him a drink. Skol.
He's just takes himself too seriously. Based on his 1-;,liners, he can't put two words together.

It's years indeed, since people have been insulted like this. I was once accused of being <Q>worse than Mr. Hiltler</Q>
At this stage I would hire a MBTI expert to sort out this mess.
bearish deserves an apology.

When pressed on the proportion of people coming into the UK – according to the latest official figures – were from within the EU, Mr Johnson said: “Came from within the EU? From memory the total net migration proportions are about 50-50, but I may be wrong about that.”
The presenter Rachel Burden pointed out: “You are wrong about that"


All those journalists yielding Google search engines instead of brains. Not anyone knows the real migration figures. I remember modelling the situation after the 2nd EU enlargement, which was particularly interesting - after the 2nd EU enlargement. There are no surveys to measure the quantity of interest accurately. In other words, it's out of control. And of course I this nonsense is number one news in my feed...
