Me neither, I could not give a rat’s arse what MT puts on his Facebook page or his so called blog and I doubt that anyone else does either. He is either incredibly stupid with what he posts or incredibly crass, I suspect the former. As for his veiled threats, well carry on old son, I doubt if they will carry any more weight than all the threats you made against the person who ripped you off, your plans for revenge et al, that was another damp squib. So in the words of Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington, publish and be dammed. Plus he makes the wild assumption that anyone will actually read his blog, a true sign of a megalomaniac. ;)

It would be consistent with your usual "style", however, I very strongly suspect you wouldn't be prepared to do what id prefer, if i thought there was any prospect id certainly request it.

And posting his poetic eulogy on here after killing the dog qualifies as being just as nasty in my book. 8)

Surely you realise that Horus et al were not mocking the death of the dog but rather MT's "eulogy".....presumably because they thought it, and him, hypocritical.

I'm not coming off anything.

The motivation and reasoning behind it are irrelevant as far as i am concerned.

If we thought it was ok to treat people we dont like in any way we feel we would need a lot more jail space.

Im not suggesting there was any mocking of the death of the dog, clearly it was directed at MT, as ive pointed out, some people take their pets too seriously but thats upto them.

theres no shortage of ire being fired in MT's direction, im sure there is room for an alternate attitude.

Some people do indeed take their pets seriously and owe a duty of care towards them and most members on here feel the same way as seen by the response to MT’s first post on the subject, so to make a second one eulogising the dogs death is designed to provoke a reaction, he knows exactly what he is doing.

It is true that there are folk who believe that Oscar Wilde was correct when he said:

“It is silly of you, for there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”

I said "too" seriously and i highly suspect that whatever decision was taken the usual suspects would have been sticking the boot in.


Most people who have offered up an opinion might feel the same way but that is a fraction of the members, now you are projecting.

He probably lied about losing the internet just so he could wait and have such a dig at responders. Quite likely another of his famous "funny" set-ups that so many fall for.

I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if he eventually says his plans for his poor dog were just his idea of teasing and the dog is fine and eventually going to another home in Egypt or elsewhere or to Australia after quarantine. Nor would I be surprised if he does kill the poor dog. I wouldn't put anything past him based on his history here. I believe nothing he says about anything and you're mad if you do.

Nor did I believe anyone's wishes for a happy new life for him. I personally couldn't care less. He is one of the main reasons for the decline of this forum and I'm not afraid to say so, unlike others. Many only support him against criticism of him and like him posting so they can have cheap shots at him. Surely you don't seriously believe we'll never hear from him again? If so then you are delusional; in your dreams.

As to him learning? More delusions. And once again, who cares if he does or not? Not this little black duck.

Nor do I care what he or anyone says about my comments; at least I'm honest. I'm sure many agree with them, even if they're not game to say so.
You may be honest but that doesn't give you the right to question my honesty, i do wish him well for the future, but seeing as you don't give a toss im sure thats not a source of irritation for you.

Whilst we are on the subject of delusional, it seems pretty delusional to me for anyone to claim they know what everyone is thinking and what they do and do not really mean and what motivations they have for supporting him or anyone else.

As for you patting yourself on the back for telling it like it is and "others" being afraid to, i have not detected any reticence on anyone's part when it comes to expressing a view on MT so i wouldn't expect any frankness awards on that front.

Speak for yourself and stop trying to project what other people may think - they are capable of expressing that themselves.

Way too much projecting going on in your post.

Since you like being frank let me say i couldn't care less what you or anyone else thinks either but if and when i do have an opinion on it i will give it.
I wasn't questioning your honesty. I speak for no-one but myself. You have rarely posted for a long time. I didn't say I claimed to know what everyone is thinking; that's your words.

Others have regularly, and particularly strongly, posted against him. From the many, many such posts it is impossible to believe most really wish him well. Their other comments belie it. You just said exactly that: " i have not detected any reticence on anyone's part when it comes to expressing a view on MT " and "they are capable of expressing that themselves." That was my point. I rarely have commented for quite some time, even when he had a go directly or indirectly at me, and then mainly to correct erroneous "information" about Australia on his so-called "blog" so others got the facts. From replies to his "facts", people obviously believed everything without even checking.

I have projected nothing. I have read over and over what they thought for many years, and seen clearly just how especially pointed they have been since his recent declarations, as on this thread. And then there are the PMs I have been sent which also expressed clear opinions.

Of course there is.

At least one person has said that they thought he was doing the right thing.

I'm not sure whether you agree with his actions...or just object to the avalanche of condemnation. But you're free to say.

And the rest of us are free to disagree, criticise his actions and to throw whatever barbs we like (within forum rule constraints). This has never been a place for shrinking violets.

I can recall being on the rough end of comments from you :lol: But all taken in good spirits!

If I thought L4U was a "hale-fellow-well-met" sort of communal love-in, I'd have been gone long ago. No fun in that!

"At least" being the operative word.

I have no view on the matter.

Agreed, i have not suggested otherwise.

Absolutely!

Meanwhile, Major Thom is probably reading up here (under yet another user name) and or reports passed on to him from others, and rubbing his hands with glee whilst laughing his socks off. His stirring of the pot and 'dishing it out' having done what he intended.

An old saying has just come to mind 'Why keep a dog and bark yourself!' . It has nothing to do with Major Thom's dog but it does seem to fit the bill at the moment.

I remember reading long years ago that a family member, sorry can't remember which one, was remembering in fondness as she watched Charlie giggling to himself reading the responses to his sometimes cutting and blunt responses when in the mood. He was a mischief maker and still loved for his contributions, which, on the whole were very well put, informative and intelligent. Unfortunately MT's qualities fell at the first hurdle from the introduction of J&L all those years back. When a person constantly needles you, getting right up your nose an inch further than a cotton bud, you can't help but respond, which, as already said, is what he wants. So let us not upset him by ignoring him, pretending that he doesn't exist. He loves the attention, quite evidently so as he quotes how many hits and pages his posts collect.But a constantly maligned victim he certainly is not.

Projecting seems to be your latest buzz word, but to correct you somewhat, my reference to ‘most’ members is regarding those that post and not the ones who wait to be entertained or to register just to play the games section, not forgetting the odd troll or multiple identity that drops by occasionally. So as I am in a better position to judge, let me say again that most members who bother to participate in the debates on here have condemned his actions.

Look, ive said "projecting" twice, i say what i see.

I cant help it if you failed to explain yourself clearly.

At the cost of laboring the point, you said "most members" which you have now amended to "most members who have commented".

I would not disagree with that, but the correction is to yourself not to me, i can only go on what you say, not what you meant to say.

Finally, why do people feel they need strength in numbers, "most people agree with me" etc.

So what? What difference does that make? Especially on a clicky forum such as this.

Finally, you mention the "odd troll".

Are you referring to me?
