Elderban is right, this site had deteriated and in my conversation with Damo I have admitted fault, we used to have open dialog and debate, but instead I have allowed name-calling and childish banter to continue. If you see yourself in that comment, great, maybe there is hope, if not you need to grow up some more before coming back to play with the big boys. This site is not politically correct nor will it ever be, but it is not for children who cannot for a thought of their own.
A12 your post in which you bash this site is the most thought out post you have made in a long time. You of course are wrong, but are you man enough to see it?
I decided several months go to not post any more here but my curiosity made me peek in once in a while. I decided to log in and post the last time primarily to wish Damien and the people of Australia well in their battle against the flooding. While i was here I posted a factual story from the Associated Press not some "democratic underground" about the stock market and my opinion that it was good news. Anyone was welcome to disagree and you and elderban did. No harm no foul. But what you have said above really surprises me a bit. I have always through our disagreements considered you a friend but see you hold me in such low regard that you don't consider me one. I too am walking away but felt the need to answer the character assassination above before leaving. This will be my last post here. So you and the real trolls can enjoy what you have turned this into.
