If you want to accuse me, too, of anti-semitism, please go ahead and we can debate it here. If you want to accuse me of socialism, too, and opposing nationalism, we can also debate that here. If you want to accuse my knees of jerking, the same applies.

Norman, what's it with you old chum? Every time I say something vaguely political you make personal jibes at me! My views are as sincerely held as yours so if you can't say anything constructive just shut the fuck up.

Des, I can't judge your sincerity at all. That's up to you to display, and for me to read and judge.

I think I made a few constructive comments above, you're welcome to reply in any way you feel they deserve. But if you wish to attack me (or others) for being "anti-semitic leftists" then go ahead and we can debate it. If not, then please do not use insulting words at me, it's crass and unoriginal. Need I remind you where this kind of behaviour once led to before?

Given that you don't even admit who you are, Nurse, it is difficult to consider the concept that there is anything remotely sincere in your views.

In any case please do not turn this into a personal tirade.

The forum has recently been blissfully free of this kind of confusion of the expression of views and the use of personal insults.

Words hurt more than you may realise.

That's rubbish Charlie - everyone knows who I am on this forum. I'm Des Bowring, music lover, birdwatcher, lifelong socialist and all-round good egg.

I have every right to tell someone to fuck off when they continually question my sincerity or make personal insults whenever I dare raise my head above the political parapet. For some weird reason this person seems to have such a high opinion of himself that he assumed I was taking a personal swipe at him when I expressed concern at anti-semitism in the left! Paranoia or what!

I have every right to voice my opinions on this forum without having to put up with personal jibes from the official spokesman for world socialism.

If you have been, thanks for listening.

Charlie, feel free to move the following to Forum Decorum.

What about newcomers to the forum? Trouble is, the name change gets applied to all your past posts, and without any real backup information in your profile who you really are gets (or will get) lost in the mists of time. As amusing as some of the names are, there's almost something cliquey (if that's a word: conceited might be more apposite) in the assumption that every visitor is 'in' on these regular pseudonym changes.

All in my very humble opinion, like you say you're free to do whatever you choose.

If I remember, I'll put 'Des' at the end of my posts so you'll know who I am.


There I remembered.

You've the name of a "foul mouthed misogynist now?" This & telling someone to F off, just because they don't agree & telling him to have a lay down...
I'd be upset too.

Yeah Des, I have to say your schtick's wearing a bit thin. Your childish refusal to apologise for a flash of temper has rid the forum of one of it's most valuable contributors. I would have quit myself in sympathy but he asked me in a PM not to. I don't expect you to take any notice of what I think but for what it's worth I think you're well out of order and the more you bluster about it the worse it gets. I mean, Roger Mellie?? Fuxake...
