You indirectly addressed me and asked a question. I directly responded and answered your question, rather than play this passive-aggressive game, lol.
I find it interesting that anytime somebody makes a comment about an individual (or individuals), whether directly or indirectly, and the person responds, the instant reaction is to make these passive-aggressive comments or some cop out about how oh, wow, you're being defensive! You addressed me, so I'm addressing you back and engaging, actually giving you an answer.
And rather than actually comment on the substance of my comment, you make yet another indirect, passive aggressive comment because you have nothing to offer in return aside from a bail-out comment about thin skin, lol. If you have actual input to contribute to it, then do, but so far, you've just made a bunch of empty, too-cool-for-school comments (with corresponding too-cool eye-roll emoji).

I simply find it unnecessary .. and knowing the Forum self-corrects, makes it doubly unnecessary ..
You felt bothered enough to make a comment about it...man, some thinner skin around here these days... if the shoe fits..
See, two can play at that game. I'm not going to artificially restrict my vocabulary because you subscribe to some archaic notion that certain words are unnecessary while you watch a show that has incest and plenty of these unnecessary words, lmao.
The fact that the forum auto-filters (or cloaks, as you like to call it) makes the fact that you even brought it up unnecessary, lol. Either you can tell what word(s) I am using and so the filter is useless anyways or you can't tell and the filter is doing it's job and you are protected from the savagery of my words while we discuss incest and killing people

Cersei pulled it off brilliantly, and Euron also played his part in it well.
I've complained about the Arya/Sansa dustup in Arya's quarters because that was a "setup" action with nobody to see the setup. Cersei's & Euron's ploy didn't show the planning for the setup, we are left to infer that. So while the former falls into "fool the audience" territory, IMO the latter definitely does not because we just saw how it played out and then the explanation.
Yeah, good point about Cersei and it being a classic TV show con game move. I was definitely fooled to an extent on Cersei. I never trust her character, as I always assume there is some angle she is taking, but I didn't see the 20k Golden Company coming or that Euron was leaving to get them. I thought maybe she had seen reason, but I guess with how much more Mad Queen she has gotten, it makes sense that she plans on foregoing logic of teaming up to try and backstab them and win the whole thing at once, haha.
