It could be your first comment, if you're trying to be rude, vulgar and disrespectful.

You don't know anyone personally in this thread and non of us can be considered as a "kid" to you.

I hope you will think twice next time before writing an idiotic comment. I understand it's hard for you to write any valuable thing, but give it a try.

Yikes. I thought "Cut the kid some slack" was idiom. As an old hermit me thinks there be many linguistic land mines to avoid here.
Heck, I treat all minors as having equal value and rights and avoid "talking down" to them.
Lol... I could be in trouble here....... sport?
(Note that "sport" is also condescending.)
(OT: Am I auto-liking my own comments?)

It all depends when and with whom you are joking or sharing idioms or something else.

You are still wrong if your jokes and idioms are out of place.

If I don't know you personally, I'll never talk to you with "many linguistic land mines".

I am confused about that last paragraph but assume you meant you would err on the side of caution.
None-the-less I think you kind of did in a indirect sense.
Was that not a little "over the top" given the offense?
"I hope you will think twice next time before writing an idiotic comment. I understand it's hard for you to write any valuable thing, but give it a try."
Yikes. Frankly I find that to be a double standard.

Ahhh. As the OP you were greatly offened by being referred to as "kid" and possibly new.
That's reasonable I guess.

I like the way you're analyzing the situation, lol.

I literally can't help it Senik. I appologize for "brain picking" you.
