    K3T I reckon AM, if only for the stepless adjustment and speed over the KS... Also, KS = domestic, K3T = small commercial.

    Nevertheless, delighted to help you with either.... 8-)

    I have a K3T and couldnt be happier with it.
    I havent used the KS but the only advantage I can see is the smaller footprint.

    Re: Choice of ECA or Ks

    I have a K3T and my brother has a KS. The K3T is faster and stepless adjustment is an advantage. The KS is shorter on the bench top and the grind quality is just as good as the K3T. I think the KS is the best small (size wise) grinder. But if your bench can fit a K3T, its the better option.

    OOOOOO

    Hopefully in time for Chrismas. Surely if the postal workers knew what was in there they would make an exception from their current strikes/protests.

    The context doesnt change the fact you were making a joke about beating your wife. All the context does is supply the reason you think she deserves one.

    Joking, for sure. But its not a mis-quote. Your follow-up joke just cements the reason I object.

    Jokes like this are never ever funny. Ever. Not on.

    Hi freney

    In AMs defence, Im a woman and I take no offence at what AM wrote - most of us know his sense of humour and take everything he says with a liberal pinch of salt. Ive been known to make jokes as my husbands expense also, all with him laughing in the background.

    And men who seriously beat up on their wives, girlfriends or significant others are the ones that dont joke about it openly - thats why is a hidden crime and, more often than not, its the women that have to make the move to get out of the relationship.

    Now, if we were on an dog fighting forum, or something equally icky or with violent overtones, it might not be being said with such jest...but I would hope that any of us wouldnt be going to those sorts of forums anyway.

    Cheers
    Di

    PS - and we all know, anyway, who really rules the roost in the AM household and, trust me, they dont have a CoffeeSnobs avatar - Mediterranean women are not known for being reticient! ;D

    So Pete realy knows what goes ON :D ;D :o

    And yes... Truth be known I have a bit of a rep.... Do not intend to offend... And any one who has met me or known any in the family... Knowes only towell who has the final say....

    If I do offend, a quick PM or such to say... That you found somthing offensive to you, is fine ...... That is the primary rule as to any code of conduct...

    To miss quote (out of context) and then issue me with a directive is and can be seen as bulling / standover tactits and only add fire ... It oes not solve or provide a resloution...

    That being said...

    Lets move on.

    My wife is now starting to get testy, as I am spending too much time on CS.. Disipline will soon be delt out and I may not enjoy/ approve of the outcomes :-X

    That may or may not be true. Im sure most dont joke about it openly on an internet forum... but some might. Ive certainly known men whove been abusive, and they have often openly put down their wives - a public admission of sorts, for those who have ears to hear.

    AM may not be this sort of guy. Given this is an internet forum, and we live several hundred km apart, I dont know him personally in any way. Others Im sure will speak in his defence. Youve cited his humorous record... which is part of the problem.

    AM may not hit his wife. (From the sounds of it in his posts he doesnt, but Id rather not get any further details along the lines of the above, thanks AM!) But joking about it legitimizes the whole practice. Minutely, sure. But for that bloke reading the forums - or that woman - who does, the fact that a respected and senior member of a nice, friendly forum like this one can joke about domestic violence and put a smiley face after to make it all ok *might just make their own practice a little more defensible.

    Which it isnt.


    Now, if we were on an dog fighting forum, or something equally icky or with violent overtones, it might not be being said with such jest...but I would hope that any of us wouldnt be going to those sorts of forums anyway.
    Ugliness can be hidden behind the nicest exteriors. Ever notice how much nastiness gets exposed in churches, for example? (Im an Anglican minister, BTW.)


    In the end, AMs practice matters very little. The language of violence and the implicit acceptance of the process in a public forum is the problem.

    Sorry AM, I was composing my response while you posted, so Im a bit out of sequence.

    Fair enough, Ill PM you next time (or anyone else, for that matter). Even so, the comment is not offensive to me per se, but publicly so, and part of the public forum. So a discussion is appropriate in public, although yes, I should have contacted you first.

    I still maintain I did not misquote or quote out of context. But theres more info above anyway.

    Yes, you were joking. Yes, youve clarified. But the public record needs to be dealt with publicly.

    Sam.

    Re: Choice of ECA or Ks

    Just saw your tweet freney. Having seen domestic violence up close in a few forms, I wouldnt joke about it and found this really offensive when
    I read it. In fact, when the shortened link opened up onto CoffeeSnobs, I thought it mustve been mis-linked.

    I was going to keep my mouth shut, as I dont think posting is going to change anyones opinion of whether its okay, but couldnt ethically hit the close button.

    I know a guy who beat his wife so badly she had to have her jaw wired, and joked about beating her down the pub. She was too scared to press charges.

    Re: Choice of ECA or Ks

    Jokes can be bothe a method to copy with an issue and or to hide and issue..

    Public forum or not.... I will continue to joke about many things... If every thing was tabo or we were afraid to confront an issue... We all might as well roll over and die..

    My old man would often say only two things should never be disscussed ...

    1: Religion and

    2: Politics...

    I tend to agree, but point out that just about every good funny man/person ( Hate PC with a passion) usualy gets their best laughs from targeting.. Not only 1 and 2 above but any number of other sensitave subjects... In many cases it is how the message get out... Other wise every one just keeps it safe and locked behind doors... Oohhh ...... Its ok to X but dont do Y....

    Obviously an emotional issue for you... As a MINISTER... you should have set a true example rather than lashing out... Good thing I was not down the road .... Mabe a drive by would have taken place... Minister or NOT... Respect first... Olive leaf afterwards is only worth putting on the firs..

    I also believe that issues such as;

    3: Right to life ( the issues of A and E)

    1,2 and 3 are emotional and thus many ... Loose perspective and rational approch...

    4: Race... What is race... I love every one, regardles... It is the behaviour of one or more persons that means I have an issue with THEM and only them.

    My brotherin law is in the Orders of Friars Minor.... A Franciscan. Sorry.. Just another two leged being... Some behave well and others are fit for nothing... And I shal not comment on where he belongs...

    And on that note... I have to read another book by Dr Rodney Syme... Time passes too quickly...

    AND re write my Ignore script.. Seems it fails when a post contains anothers Quote.. Bugger.. Self Flagellation in order this time.... :-*
