Snipped yet more insult laden waffle.


Can you not simply argue your point without resorting to insults?

Seriously - its getting very boring.

Robert and co have a different outlook on how systems should be designed, from yourself and those that agree with you.

You might consider Robert's approach to be wrong - thats fine.

Robert may consider your approach wrong - thats also fine.

However, just because its different does not mean its wrong.

It certainly does not mean we need to respond with insults to argue our point.

Its like Buddists saying Christians (or other faith) are stupid because they hold different ideas of what is right.

Argue your points by all means - but insults are not needed to sway people one way or the other. Received on Tue Jun 06 2006 - 20:19:41 CEST
