Wow, do we need to get a moderator in here guys?? I started this forum for suggestions on how to DETER mice...not how to KILL them in sickening nasty ways!

HeartMyOTTB is right though, no need for profanity on here...I definitely don't like KoalaRock's comment, I think it was a distasteful and unnecessary joke, but I also don't like nasty words being used in my thread either. So can we all just get back on subject?

Has anyone else tried moth balls to deter the mice and did it work at all for you?

I think that person's comment was ridiculous, and as MIEventer said, that person was saying it simply to get a rise out of people. It worked, too. I know its hard to sit by when people say asinine things like that, but it was inappropriate to refer to the female genetalia on a public forum.

It would be inappropriate of me not to have called the poster out on it.

The word "twat" has many meanings, and I did not use it the way you are referring to. It is more an epithet. It is about as profane as calling someone an idiot.

I am glad that you called the poster out. And if the use of that word to you is as mild as calling someone an idiot, then I'll be humbled. However, the definition of "Epithet" is a defamatory or abusive word or phrase, A word or phrase, often disparaging or abusive, that expresses a character trait of someone or something...

Idiot doesn't really fall into the catagory. So that could explain why I find the word you used to be slightly profane. Just remember that kids use this space. And if you mean Idiot, say that.

And in the words of StormyBlues, "I'm getting out of this mess!" I hope Hoofprints in the Sand found some worth between the arguing.

Well where I'm from, "twat" essentially means "idiot" or "fool". But epithet is right considering such a trait of idiocy is shown.
