...and what are your prejudices? Anyone who has a different view to you?macliam wrote: ↑Mon Mar 11, 2019 1:33 amGrow up!

Truth is I don't know why you or indeed anyone on here needs to get personal or vindictive with their comments - but you still persist... shame it is so demeaning but you seem to love distorting matters to embrace victimhood and bulling those who do not agree. Oh well have your fun, just do us all a favour and leave the personal bit out...
But, as long as you keep posting things for me to rebut, I (and others) will continue to point out the flaws in your reasoning - this is not your personal playground where you can trot out your prejudices and expect applause. To this end, I would point out that it is you who seems to be embracing victimhood - I think you'll be hard pressed to find an example where I do - and if countering your comments is bullying, then Lord help us all.
Saying someone is naïve is just a comment and not given with malice or bad intent.pabenny wrote: ↑Mon Mar 11, 2019 7:06 amI've just (quickly) reviewed the whole thread. I saw couple of fairly mild personal comments - people calling each other naive. Vindictive - yes, towards IS and their like. And nothing that might be called bullying.
There are clearly some strongly held views and for the most part discussion has remained civil. But the last few posts have degenerated.
- let's try to avoid personal comments
- maybe avoid phrases such as "people like you" when what is meant is "people with similar views". That way it sounds less personal
- let's also try to avoid rising to them. There are some who are too ready to take offence at what they see as personal comments when they are simply disagreement.

I'm sure you would be quick to point them out - and again, I reserve the right to make my point robustly. If I actually posted what I though about some comments, you'd probably blow a valve. I am guilty of not always framing my comments as my opinion - but I never claim that everyone supports me and I'm ready to back up my claims, if challenged.
Actually, suggesting someone is naïve is malicious, when the intent is not to comment on the person, but to demean their argument.
(my highlighting) You are the only one who regularly resorts to this claim - usually when you your arguments are rebuffed. However, you are also the one who is regularly challenged for spinning news in support of your own views..... and that has also been discussed on many occasions. So you'll excuse my cynicism when you claim to speak for the good of the forum.Boro Boy wrote: ↑Mon Mar 11, 2019 4:24 pmSome do not sound to have good intent and wait to pounce on peoples comments and I will always think that this will scare off the newer members. Every 6 months or so we all go through this self regulating again but the truth is many walls may have ears but they don't listen.

Well, that's an interesting assessment - a board charged with deciding on the allocation of limited legal aid funding has decided that the request has merit - and you think that's a disgrace
