As per the title.
I see I got banned from the thread last night, why was this I wonder, could it be that nobody could hold an intelligent argument without getting mardy.
As freedom of speech also been banned in the world, or is it just on here.
Let's take that thread as an example, I said I wouldn't employ a brand new guy who was over 50 and immediately got jumped on by , ironically everyone over 50.
But the big mistake you made was to prove my point for me, at No point did I say I wouldn't employ a full qualified time served 50 year old electrician, what I said was I wouldn't employ a 50 year old fast track one that last week was a florist or worked in a cafe.
The next mistake you all made was to jump on me about the baggage and fitness comment I made, if you were to open your eyes and read my comment again you would see I said that people over 50 COULD come with those issues, at No point did I say they WOULD.
So again you proved my point for me that people over 50 can be very set in their ways, you also were very quick to put the younger generation down when in fact it was you lot that behaved like kids.
I think people like me intimidate you, because i am young and successful and have a clear set of rules , it starts to make the older generation malfunction who then can't answer with an intelligent reply.
Take the comment I made to westward about having an ugly wife, it was clearly a joke and thankfully it was taken that way by him, yet some of of the less intelligent members no doubt took offence.
One thing that did interest me was the ratings I got, it actually turns out I got more positive than negative ones, I bet as well that the members that gave me positive ratings are the intelligent and successful members.

How some of you reply to this thread will either prove or disprove the opinion I have.
Let's see how long until I get either insulted or reported.

an honest answer to the above. i have read the threads you have been involved in and, while i can't disagree with most of your posts, you do come across as bombastic and perhaps a bit arrogant. that's just my tuppence worth .

I don't think it's the fact you are clearly opinionated, as has been stated already, I think it's more about your delivery.

Considering you're a new member, it was perhaps a little OTT... as evidenced by the warning dished out by the staff.

Thank you for that, is there anything wrong with arrogance if you can back it up, I'm pretty sure all the greats had a bit of it in them.

You don’t intimidate me.
Don’t know whether you intimidate anyone else?
Might just be that people found you to be rude?
I mean in an intellectual manner not aggressive.

You're very loquacious this morning Starjack, someone got up your nose have they?
Nobody got up my nose Peter, but I clearly got up yours , based on all the negative ratings while you never offered up an intelligent reply, this does lead me to believe your even older than the rest.
Please don't take offence to that as it is just a statement. If you do take offence it will just further bolster my argument.

So tell me Honey, what did I say that was so bad that deserves a ban, is it like I said, maybe nobody could hold an intelligent conversation.
You will never reach the top by dithering and sugar coating things, life is cruel at times so man up, or woman up in your case.

Sorry, but I really don’t know.
I’m just going through the ‘new posts’ this morning.
Haven’t looked any this other thread you mentioned.
Well you crumbled quicker than I thought you would, but accepting it now saves us both time.

Yes you do get up my nose a bit Mate , although I can't see what my age has to do with anything, perhaps you could explain your obsession with peoples age.
I don't take offence Starjack, plenty of people have tried in the past, and none have succeeded as of yet.

I like apple crumble, but I like it to have crunchy lumps in the crumble that I can get my teeth into.
Not certain whether you’re just trying to start a fight, or are seriously asking why people have a problem with you?

What have I said that makes you think I want to start a fight, I said I thought I might intimidate you intellectually and you replied with,,,,you didn't know.

You said I crumbled quicker than you thought.
Suggests that we were having a disagreement or a fight.
I can’t really disagree with anything in the thread you mentioned, as I haven’t looked at it.
The fact that I haven’t looked at it, indicates that it has no interest to me.
