First topic message reminder :

I don’t know why this seems so hard for people to follow.

What is the point of clicking on a thread, reading the OP and then deciding you’re going to reply in a way that means you’re not addressing the actual point because of who posted it up?

There’s no point in deciding what someone’s “agenda” is and then posting a reply to that effect, that’s not debating, is it? Perhaps they do have an agenda - who knows - but the point of a debate is to address the post not the poster.

Let’s all try it and see what happens.

They're not honest, they're just abusive and arrogant. There is a difference you know.

I have to agree 100%....and to be more than honest I dont see how anyone could say differently.

Dodge, Andy and I have each been basemented several times for simply replying to other peoples' insults, while admittedly ramping up our abuse in return...

Yet I have never once seen those man-hating and dried-up nasty old harridans the likes of HT and Sly banished for even one day for any of their fallacious and misandrist crap..

Around here this week, we saw Dodge basemented again for a couple of days, while those hatemongers from the NF Hens Club get even more 'free kicks' with more of their usual divisive lies.

@ title "answer the post, not the poster"

You don't need a degree in psychology to understand that certain posts are made to troll & annoy.
In such cases do I react to the post or the poster?
Answer: Neither! I ignore both the post & the poster. Answer the post, not the poster.  - Page 2 3489511464

Admin have a habit of not banning or basementing intelligent, eloquent posters who contribute to this forum rather than posting foul misogynistic rants on a regular basis like this one. Perhaps you have trouble getting your little pea brain around that?

You are, without exception, the most vicious, mean spirited poster on here. I don't think I've ever seen you actually have something nice or pleasant to say to those you take a dislike to. You carry your resentments around like a great big hump, and seem to get more crazed and embittered as time goes on.

I dread to think what your life must be like to make you so bitter and twisted about people you've never even met.

Wolfie is intelligent and eloquent too. In no way is he shabby in that department. Very knowledgeable in just about everything, usually with statistics to support his arguments. 

Regarding the insults I won't make excuses for him. But he seems frustrated with the automatic way some people back each other up. Like it's a tight clique.  One person has an argument with him & straightaway another person arrives to back up. If people are so eloquent maybe they can speak for themselves without others always joining in?

Seriously... are you reading the posts on this forum...!?


Wolfie only ever pops up to hurl unwarranted abuse at other posters, and I don't think I've ever seen him post any statistics about anything...!!!


Maybe you should see for yourself and look at the last 100 or 200 posts he has made...!?

I'm just as sure if we looked at all your insane number of posts a third would say 'waffle' and at least another third C&P of the same things you've said 100s of times. With occasional 'twat' for good measure. Hardly the example of an ace poster yourself, tommy Wink

Like you have arrived  to back him up do you mean? Laughing

No one really has an argument with him, what happens is he often mentions several posters as a job lot to spew unprovoked venom at in his posts. So if one or more of them  decide to answer him in kind, he can hardly complain he is being 'ganged up on' now can he. Rolling Eyes

I knew you'd say that!  Laughing
But if I'd really backed him up I'd have said he has every right to insult people. Which I didn't say.

It's not habitual for me to speak on his behalf.
I'm merely trying to highlight the reason he has given for his grudges. 
Cos if this cycle is not broken, there won't be peace.

Nobody mentions wolfie until he pops up with a barrage of insults...


If he stopped doing that... then nobody would mention him ever again...!

I certainly don't doubt Wolfie's intelligence and wide-ranging knowledge, Jules (though, it's perhaps, not quite so wide-ranging as you appear to believe).

It's your word "eloquent" with which I would take issue, given his endless manic and almost obsessive deployment of derogatory and offensive adjectives when referring to some of us, usually when he is posting about the differences in opinion between his perceived saintly Left and his equally perceived evil Right in this place.

Now, for real eloquence I would much prefer the style of Falstaff's crony Gadshill in Shakespeare's Henry 1V:

I am joined with no foot-land-rakers, no long-staff sixpenny strikers, none of these mad mustachio purpole-hued maltworms...but but with nobility and tranquility.


So much more "eloquent" than "man-hating dried-up nasty old harridans" or "I don't have a single fucking clue what you're gibbering on about you slimy troublemaking troll..."

Fred, I do believe I am a little bit in love with you.  Laughing

Gosh! I say! My craggy old visage is positively blushing at the very thought, Syl....

Wolfie is intelligent and eloquent too. In no way is he shabby in that department. Very knowledgeable in just about everything, usually with statistics to support his arguments. 

Regarding the insults I won't make excuses for him. But he seems frustrated with the automatic way some people back each other up. Like it's a tight clique.  One person has an argument with him & straightaway another person arrives to back up. If people are so eloquent maybe they can speak for themselves without others always joining in?

I  certainly don't doubt Wolfie's intelligence and wide-ranging knowledge, Jules  (though, it's perhaps, not quite so wide-ranging as you appear to believe).

Let's stand back and take a look. The English members here have a problem with Australians. As an independent observer, thousands of miles away, I can see it. Neither wolf nor veya please your highnesses.

You can see the abject hypocrisy, I might add as an aside, of your criticism of me and my dislike of eastern Europeans.

I think that the fact is that Australians have fallen out of love with you...and your British egos can't stand it. Perhaps its the distance, but they don't seem to be a bit affected by you. They talk across to you, not up as you would like. You respond with a heavy dose of your typical British chauvinism.

Perhaps you might start by being nice, as Jules is doing. If y'all start being nice to Australians, who knows...it might get me to reconsider eastern Europeans.

I like Veya, I have never had a problem with him....and I suspect other Brits here have the same viewpoint.
I do, along with most normal people have a problem with some abusive little man who spews out his childish name calling 99% of the time he posts.

We are talking about a singular theme on this forum: Brits don't like Australians. In particular, they don't like that they refuse to cow-tow to them.

We were not talking about a singular theme at all, that was just a red herring you brought into the discussion to cover up for your abusive little mate.

Really? I've never sensed any "problem" between English and Aussies outside the confines of this forum. Like Nicko I've served with them, have quite a number of friends and relations "down under" and my partner, being part Australian, is a positive Aussiephile, so if you believe that I personally "have a problem" you are entirely wrong.

So far as Veya is concerned, my own feeling based on relatively few exchanges is that it is he who has the problem with some of us Brits, myself included. He appears all too often not to appreciate that the rest of us have an absolute right to hold and express an opinion with which he may violently disagree, and wrongly believes that resorting to ridicule and contempt will result in some sort of intellectual victory for him...a somewhat curious attitude for a moderator.

I have already said that I don't doubt Wolfie's intelligence or impressive knowledge; I simply cannot help wondering whether, in some strange way, he gets some sort of sexual satisfaction in describing female posters in gratuitously insulting, highly offensive  and obscene terms, one of the worst examples of his so-called "eloquence" being, as I recall,  "dried up old cunts."

And as an aside in reference to your own aside regarding "abject hypocrisy", I trust that was not directed at me personally - I actually share your dislike of some Eastern Europeans whose home "culture" has given us, particularly in some of our cities including London, organised aggressive begging, pickpocketing, human trafficking and enslaved prostitution.

I now expect that remark to be greeted by one of Wolfie's usually "eloquent" adverse reactions, and a threat of basementing by the forum's selective arbiter of the standards and opinions of the rest of us.

It's always the same pattern with those people with the audacity to assume superiority.

At some point they will fall back on: Why sum o' my bes frens is nagras... [insert: Hispanics, Asians, Muslims, or whatever the issue].

You have to be able to say something other than, they love me! Because not all of them do.

It's always the same pattern with those people with the audacity to assume superiority.

At some point they will fall back on: Why sum o' my bes frens is nagras... [insert: Hispanics, Asians, Muslims, or whatever the issue].

You have to be able to say something other than, they love me!  Because not all of them do.

Quill, it's based on actually knowing, having met, conversed with and interacted with people...and nothing to do with having "the audacity to assume superiority."

Oh, and in my own case, all that, and a very long-standing hatred of racism in all its forms.

All that you are doing is to add credence to my suspicion that there are those of you who actually believe that one cannot possibly be accused of directing racism...so long as it is directed only against the British, and particularly the white middle class.

Brits on this forum don't seen to take to Australians.

There are only two Aussies on this forum, so how do you know that? They're both a bit gobby and anti-British, which might be an Aussie trait, and I'm not keen on that.
