I disagree with you on a lot of things but we rarely get into the tit for tat posts that happen between you and Elessar. Maybe that is because I don't rule you as much of we sorted out things in the private conversation we had a while back.

Maybe, just maybe, that is a way to sort things.


I have no issue with disagreeing with anyone - and, as you say, you and I disagree about quite a few things (probably mostly political), but I never got the impression that you tried to paint a different picture of me...you just disagreed; but in this case I have been accused of everything from racism to misogyny and that makes it nigh on impossible to have any middle ground: he accuses me of things I know I am most certainly not and we both will not back down from our positions.

Honestly, I would much prefer to come here and debate and disagree on some things rather than get stuck in a tit-for-tat loop; but we are just such polar opposites and both vehemently opposed to each other's views that I think it is impossible to find any common ground - now that's one thing he and I can agree on.

You accuse me of all sorts with no evidence at all (being poorly educated, average intelligence, unemployed, a student, a mummy’s boy, a leftie, a snowflake). All I do is give my opinion on your posts.

No, you make the most extreme accusations. To say otherwise is simply to tell an untruth.

But, you know what? You can have the last word here. I cannot be bothered going round in circles with you.

both of you are calling each other names. It's grating to look at. (although I certainly take my share of the blame, I can in all honesty say that you two do it more than me or anyone else)

I love me an intelligent discussion with a clever putdown from time to time, but this is not such a discussion.

very few arguments are made. Many snide remarks and outright lies are being used, by both of you.

MP, my advice to you is to wait a little before you post, and edit out the personal stuff. it's too much most of the time.

Elessar, to you I advise to hold back a bit with the stealth attacks. You know what I mean. By now, it's obvious for the regular spectator what you're trying to do.
I see you standing there. You think you so cool. Why don't you just..... fuck off!

Well, I’ll concede what you call stealth attacks, although I’d argue that if someone recognises a generic criticism as being aimed specifically at them, it’s effectively an admission of the behaviour being criticised.

As for name calling, I think if you went looking for examples you’d be surprised by how few there are. I think there was one about a year ago and Dusty descended down from Heaven to announce that I had officially lost because I’d called someone a name (the name was Tuneful Whore, which is barely even an insult, just a pair of synonyms).

Is there a lot of ducks where you live?

The other day I told someone that I’m colour blind, and they said that (in a professional context) I should point it out when I can’t tell between two different colours.
