I mean I appreciate the news feed service and all but there are plenty out there already.

Well........... I didn’t want to offend anyone with an opinion. And - there are so many of all types readily available.

But if you insist. :D

The spin seems generally to have been that Bibi’s an untouchable dictator-for-life. You know, like Putin. To find out the old fox is up in front of a beak, for allegedly getting caught with his fingers in the till, metaphorically speaking, is a bit of a surprise to me. Perhaps to others also?

You know, I appreciate you stand like a colossus over this - “your” - forum. Spending, it seems, hours every day, devoted to it. However, you’re not obliged to pass comment on every post. You always have the option to take yourself away. Or words to that effect.

No doubt 'Israeli Politics' is just another subject on which ErLolz is the forum 'expert'... :roll:

and as an aside did you notice how much more effect I get from my multiple lols in that post above because I do not put them in every post I make ? :lol:

I'm shocked, (shocked I tells ya!) that you didn't use the Posts Per Day statistics... :roll:

...and shocked you didn't mention I've been a member 8 years longer than you... :roll:

Not shocked really of course, this is just another example of your selective posting and obfuscation that riddles almost everything you put on here! :lol:

Ahh, but you're not being fair. He didn't say you posted a lot on Israel but more inferred you regard yourself as the expert on every subject you broach. Seems fair enough a comment to me.

I did wonder about the stats actually. Perhaps I've got it wrong but your's seem to work out at less than two posts a day. That's patently ridiculous. Two an hour would be more realistic. You never seem out of here.

"Ad hominem". Yep, calling a spade a spade and isn't that what you just did? :wink: As far as jokes are concerned - you don't seem to do much in the way of humour. Which, given also the inordinate amount of time you spend in here, gives the impression that you're a bit of a sad and lonely person, seeking solace and a modicum of respect in the ephemeral world of social media. A particularly small bit of it.

Fish in a barrel? Do you really think that? Again, it adds weight to my view that to you it's all about winning the argument rather than the subject. Shooting others down, that is, bludgeoning them with post after post until they expire of exasperation. Or "stubbornness", which you seem to regard as a virtue. I don't actually feel shot down and doubt GR or Paphitis does, either.

You do have a hang up about smileys. Among the others that is.

Shooting fish in a barrel.

I simply used my latest ID for expediency and convenience to make my point even though if I used all my consecutive ID's then my case would have been even STRONGER on the very stats you say I am manipulating by selection lol. Still just so you can see how even more wrong your are here are the stats

Over all three ID's
Total posts:6565
(0.25% of all posts / 0.7 posts per day) (adding three above together and / 3)
Total mentions of Israel in my posts across all three IDs - 13

So in FACT I have been posting here LONGER than you, have mentioned Israel the same number of times as you (13) and 115 times less than Paphitis who also joined AFTER me. My average % of 'all posts' across my 3 consecutive ID's is lower than yours and my average of posts per day is ALSO lower than yours. And Londonrake's. And Paphitis.

These are the facts.

So what we really see here, rather than an example of how I use numbers selectively to suit my case is in fact is how you will avoid the point being made when it does not suit you, to make up spurious excuses as to why your are ignoring the point being made because the point being made shows just how badly wrong you were and are and you inability to accept how wrong you were and are.
