Yeah... we both did and the guy lives here! He also ends every acceptance speech (which is nearly every week) with, "Keep buying Beasts and Leopards."

Elaine's name could be the subject of either of these statements, just change the location to NC and these both still ring true, making the only differences between these two pros: sex/age and being located in DC's home state.

I just saw Ek at the US Nationals..and she still has the goods..I hope disc craft knows what they r letting go(a franchise player)..She came in a close second place in pro masters and would have came in 7th in FPO..IMHO..I would have given her a signature disc 10 years ago..

ABSOLUTELY!! But.............again, these are likely not the entire criteria picture. Discraft has obviously made the decision that giving EK a tour/sig disc was not best for them at this time. I don't like it, she has earned her chops, but it is not my money.

In modern internet parlance, particularly among those who oppose equality, "white knight" is a derisive term used for men who defend women in an online space. It carries with it the implication that the man is doing it selfishly and solely to attract the favor of a woman or women, and not for altruistic, political, or philosophical reasons.
I was aware of such understanding. However, I think it is unsatisfactory or perhaps in poor taste to rebuttal someone with "This is a stupid assertion" and "If you're going to be a cynical jerk, at least use the words correctly" based upon the very opinion based, non-consensual definitions of words derived from internet parlance. I don't think the statements you made (and were thoroughly "niced" for) were appropriate conclusions to make, in the same vein that a research paper that only cites Wikipedia appropriately argues a thesis.

From reading previous posts of yours, I think highly enough of your intelligence to expect you to craft better arguments and not stoop to the low standards of someone ranting about SJW's.

Agree. I met Elaine at the Canadian Nationals in Vancouver a couple summers ago. Class act. I wish her the best.

I code switch as necessary, depending on the audience.

Well, since you sound like someone whose knuckles drag on the ground when they walk, kneeling won’t be much of a problem for you.

Nova hit the nail on the head with that interpretation.
No I am pretty sure the black knight is the one yelling it is only a flesh wound.
