As, in turn, you have no knowledge of me. In my experience,
when a certain type of person knows they are losing the
argument they resort to abuse.
This is not a reference to your physical condition but to
your mental attitude.

As we do this this country. I do not "mock the afflicted" and
as my own health is far from perfect I have some sympathy for
your condition. However, I have NO sympathy for your attitude.
Any court in the world or even the most shyterish of shyster
lawyers would laugh you out of court!
Anyone can wallow in self pity and then say "it's not my fault,
I'm physically/intellectually/visually challenged". What I am
talking about is self respect. If you post sensible items you
will be well receive. Post aggressive destructive items and
you will be critised, asked to justify yourself and, ultimately,

Rubbish. I have critised your unjust comments regarding the
manual which I consider to be one of the best. Anything else
is in your mind.

If you had phrased your comments in a more constructive manner
they might have been better received. Just saying:
"The manual is crap, I could do better in a couple of weeks"
doesn't help anyone.

I have assisted a number of local charities by donating used
equipment to them. Perhaps a well worded *polite* appeal to
a local company would furnish you with a more suitable item?
It's amazing what you can get in return for a picture in the
papers - believe me, I've got a lot of stuff for charity that

I am not a bigot. Well, no more than the next man. We all have
our personal preferences but that does not make us bigots.
Whilst we're on the subject of dictionaries, does yours contain
"constructive", "polite", "well mannered" or just "aggressive"
and "bitter" ?

I don't want to "take you on" as you put it [and I am not a jerl].
If you behave in the manner you did PEOPLE WILL RESPOND. Behave
in a less aggressive manner and people are more likely to listen
to what you have to say.

What is the point of all the personal insults? Doesn't your
argument have enough weight to stand up without them? They
sure don't help your case...

More insults, no added value.

This has nothing whatsoever to do with the argument.
You posted an opinion you cannot defend and are now hiding
behind your disability to draw attention from that fact.
YOU brought up the fact of your disability, not me or
NOBODY would be aware of this massive red herring were
it not for you.

Hopeless putrid paced bigot and sad jerl who can't read
PS: Jon, if you want to reply perhaps you could do it
to me personally as, like the Yugoslavian thread,
your personal insults don't belong on this list.
