also particularly funny to see you calling out some new poster on this thread(sorry to said poster but i didn't fix the name) and froome19 on another thread for being "new cycling fans" when in fact from what i recall(please correct me if i am wrong) you have seen a grand total of one of tom boonen's PR wins live. . . . would you be happy if i used that very same argument to prove how your opinion that cancellara's is better then boonen was wrong just because i have watched all 4 of his wins?
anyway let's all behave including me
I dont see anything in the rules saying I cant be rude to people. Nor has anyone ever been in trouble for being rude to me.
Its actually quite bizzare and Orwellian even to castigate me for saying " I wasnt even talking to you" when the poster has accused me of talking to him in something I said, when I was in fact directing my post at someone else.
Take a look through the history if you wish, I was responding to Pistrolleros response to Afrank.
So when the poster accuse me of "mocking him" when i wasnt even talking to him, can you think of a better response than " I wasnt talking to you?"
As for the 2nd part of your post youve actually made a lot of assumptions about me and my posts and arguments, despite only having bits of information. Youve filled in the blanks yourself.
have been doing it to any1 that disagrees with you for a while all over the forum
Am I being rude to people, yes?
Does that mean I am rude to "everyone who disagrees with me?" or even people who disagree with me in general? no, i have been rude(ish) to a couple of posters this week. But all of them have been rude to me too.
If you are going to treat being rude as an offense then you can can go back through about 10 000 forum posts between me and El P and get us banned from all future publishing sites for life.
And while your at it, you should send a request to Al gore to have the man behind the Ryo Hazuki account banned from all the internets.
To take the whole thing entirely literally, you can look through this thread or all my posts even, and see that unless I have a beef with someone then I do not treat them , whether they argree with me or not, with rudeness nor condescension and for the most part follow the golden rule.
Hell just 3 minutes ago i pressed "post reply" in a response to my mortal enemy cineteq where I behaved in a manner most befit a gentlemen.
froome19 on another thread for being "new cycling fans" when in fact from what i recall(please correct me if i am wrong) you have seen a grand total of one of tom boonen's PR wins live. . .
Correct, I only saw Boonen win once (09 I didnt see this Boonen win since I switched off the tv in anger
But yes you are right I am a relatively new at watching all but the Tour since i only got cable 4 years ago, though i did follow the sport away from the tv before (not religiously though)
That is the correct bit. The incorrect assumption you make with that information is that my attack on Froome was an attack on new cycling fans or an attack on their opinions.
The attack on Froome was part of a wider conflict going back to May, when Froome responded to someone who had praised one of my thread intros from last year by saying that he could easily do better.
Its perfectly natural that when someone says that, but has no writing talent of his own, and has an omniscient correction posting style but thinks that Igor Anton is a mountain only climber who has never shown half the hill climbing skill of Danny Moreno, I will hit back.
The fact that he was not rude to me in the very thread in which I responded does not mean that my response was not unprovoked.
would you be happy if i used that very same argument to prove how your opinion that cancellara's is better then boonen was wrong just because i have watched all 4 of his wins?
BTW You cant "prove" an opinion wrong that way, only call it into question. Nor was I attempting to prove Froome wrong, i was mocking the concept of Contador having to show Froome he is good enough for him.
But more importantly if you looked through my posts in this thread I already aknowledged in about 10 of them that Boonen was better before 2010 and my entire argument the whole time has been that Cancellara is better in the present.
So if you want to keep hitting me on that point, keep hitting. The rest of my army is half way to China.
