....to not resign......over the allegations....



.....New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo broke days of silence amid allegations of sexual harassment by three women to apologize for any offence taken but saying he won’t resign and denying ever “touching anyone inappropriately.” “I certainly never meant to offend anyone or cause anyone any pain..........

deliberately misleading headline.
Andrew Cuomo has not resigned. Since I have this idiot blocked, I have no idea of what the interior of the post says.

Please correct this deception

I wish people would use the subject line to tell reader what to expect in the post instead of trying to grab attention. Outright lying in the subject is a new low.

....oh, please....get off your high horses....'resign' has 2 different meanings....there is no 'lying'......


....there are people stealing, killing thieving......but doing a 'play on words' is some how a new 'low'.....??


....I think you need to reprioritize....chastising someone for 'word play' seems to be a new low in my book....

Nobody accused anyone of killing, stealing, or thieving. Edit: surely this isn't a "new low," especially here.

Just that it's a shitty subject line.

Surely it's not an unanticipated reaction - this kind of provocation is intended to get a response, and it's not anyone else's fault if the response isn't what was hoped for.

Should we request a waaahmbulance?

I think it was clever clickbait. Unfortunately, clicking on a topic is clearly onerous for some people.

I don't think it was clever, but it clearly was clickbait. The problem is not so much the clickbait (although I can do without that), but that it was deliberately misleading and over the line. Or you could just call it a lie.

As one squarely seated in a house of glass, when it comes to taking the mick with words, if I understand correctly that “(to not)” is the revision, then I would have to agree the original would have been a bit too blunt an object.

Hank Stein, raconteur and wedding photographer extraordinaire, always told us, “If that clever thing you just did looks too much like a mistake, it probably is a mistake, you just don’t see it yet.”

Sometimes you have to kill your darlings. ;)

I of course blame Trump, his cohort of allies, enablers and magpies, and his likely Russian familiar Q for this.

On his own, in the space of one term, his sweet potatoness disgorged over 30,000 lies.

Americans LOVE to lie, and yet his smirky, crude, mean, nasty, ego inflated firehose of a cake hole has tainted this long cherished ‘Murican pastime. THANKS A LOT DON.

Sometimes, one can be too clever for one's own good.

You know, a little too big for their britches…

Not saying that is what happened here. Just saying.

I saw the author of the post, read the subject and knew exactly what they meant.

I think vision's 'Newt's gonna Newt.' says it correctly and to me there is no problem.

It's amazing that people complain about their fellow forumite's posts with language that is clearly against policy. Hypocritical bullying.

None of its “meanings” are appropriate nor describe Cuomo’s actions regarding his governorship.
resign
transitive verb
1: relegate, consign - especially: to give (oneself) over without resistance
2: to give up deliberately - especially: to renounce (something, such as a right or position) by a formal act

intransitive verb
1: to give up one's office or position: quit
2: to accept something as inevitable: submit
