You know he is talking nonsense, everyone else posting here seems to know he is talking nonsense, I've only just started posting here and I know he is talking nonsense. So what is your end game? Because it doesn't seem to be working.


It's interesting to hear a fresh perspective on this. I think you're probably right, but I think the truth is (well at least for me) that you just get sucked in.

Well, given David's history or more specifically the history of people berating him, it doesn't look like he'd be coming to his senses any time soon, if ever.

Could be, I am not that emotionally invested in it all and I think that's something you seem to misunderstand.
It takes very little energy and no frustration from me to simply rebut his claims.
It neither angers me, nor exhausts me.

Oh, the reason is simple - curiosity. I am a black sheep here. I don't know anyone and am not in on all the in-house jokes and politics. To me even if things do appear black and white the question of 'why' persists - so I dig. It's the sort of conversation that most would have in private, however, I don't like talking about people behind their backs and am not too keen on PMs. So, I apologise if this seemed a bit inquisitorial and out of place. I hope you don't take offence to my posing those questions. I certainly didn't mean to single you out. Anyway, I realise that my butting in is not going to solve this ancient conflict so I shall bow out and leave you guys in peace.[/quote]
It did not seem inquisitorial, but it did seem you were assuming things about me and my investment in this thread.
I welcome outside perspectives on my posts, so don't worry about that. :thumbup:
