NO, that's not what it means
and if you have to tell me what it means. IT MEANS that it's your interpretation and you need to explain it
Mate, I SAID IT... I know what i meant ok
we all talk differently and when I SAY SOMETHING LIKE "AT FACE VALUE IT LOOKS QUESTIONABLE"
it means.. i Question it..
beyond this you can assign any meaning you want to it, it doesn't mean it's what i meant
all it means is.... IT'S WHAT YOU THINK I MEANT
because it's not what i meant
Why should i apologize when you REASSIGNED THE MEANING OF WHAT I SAID
that would be like me re defining what you say and then giving it a negative meaning and saying to you to apologize
that's not right... is it ?
I'm TELLING YOU what i meant
You're refusing to accept it
that's not my fault. ok
here is a summary
I SAID THIS....
Now.. can you really not understand the direction i was going in here?
AS A FACT : this is a name that was made for marketing reasons
You are on a site that is TARGETED AT NEWBIES
the site NEEDS TO LOOK ATTRACTIVE AND APPEALING, SO DO THE SYSTEMS
WHY DO YOU THINK THE MODS HAVE COOL LITTLE THEME NAMES, do think their mums gave them that name
No mate, THIS IS MARKETING
and there systems have to have COOL LITTLE MARKETING NAMES AS WELL that's how marketing works.. ok
so what i said here was not false nor was it bashing THIS IS YOU WORD not mine.
YOUR POINT WAS .....
Why would i ?
it was called the COWABUNGA SYSTEM
Mate, if i made a trading system called THE WIGGLES SYSTEM or the SESAME STREET SYSTEM or THE DORA THE EXPLORER SYSTEM
WOULD YOU REALLY TAKE IT SERIOUSLY ?
let alone do deep research
so yeah FOR FACE VALUE it looked like Absolute BS THIS IS MY OPINION (WAS, my opinion)
then you said
well. firstly, it's CRITIQUE not criticizing , there's a difference
Secondly, i did give feedback the FEEDBACK AND OPINION OF ONE WHO HAS TRADED FOR 7 YEARS AND BEEN SUCCESSFUL FOR 4 YEARS APPROX
so.. My opinion counts for something
it's like if you show me a computer for a few seconds and i give you an opinion as to whether it's crap or not
it would be a different opinion and hold more weight as opposed to you if you made the opinion... see my point.
I WASN'T BASHING HIM MATE
he had a childish name attached to his system, can you really not understand why i didn't take it seriously for face value
Why would i research it... mate
i have a system that works, i don't need to research others
NOW.... RE APOLOGIES
IF YOU READ WHAT I SAID CORRECTLY YOU SHOULD HAVE INTERPRETED THIS LIKE THIS...
@t33np0k3r said this
and my opinion at the time was..... "Ok, i guess if it's working pretty well, then... good" i don't need the system personally , but if it works for others, good for you guys then.
i accepted his input for what it is . simple as that
i said this
i would think that AT THIS POINT, you should be assuming that i'm being proven wrong and i'm accepting it and i'm not arguing AM I ?
and i'm giving an explanation of my actions AND RIGHTFULLY SO. with a name like COWABUNGA SYSTEM i mean.... do you really not get it or what ?
then this was said (i actually missed this because it wasn't addressed to me and am seeing this for the first time now )
my response is.... NO I'M NOT GOING TO SHOW IT... I don't have to
and Not showing it does not mean i have an inferior system
i don't care to show it .. simple as that (take that as you will)
i mean given the "HOW ABOUT you show me yours" and the tone of the response
i would have to be stupid to show it, because WE ALL KNOW that all that is going to come from it is an argument
I'm not against pipsurfer, i dont' even know him.. good luck to the guy as far as i'm concerned, i'm not here to compare with him who's system is the best, i don't care
nor am i here to prove anything to newbies
MY SYSTEM WORKS FOR ME... END OF STORY
his system had a cool fancy marketing name that suited his avatar THAT'S MARKETING.. end of story
then.. @forexgump popped in with some clarification
ok.. i respected his opinion and input as he clarified this system to me that i have never heard of before this
well NO. not the system itself as far as i know
but THE NAME OF THE SYSTEM ... definitely yes
and his name.. yes
and FX MEN yes
and FOREX GUMP yes
and PIPNOMICS DUDE.. yes
everything here is a PLAY ON WORDS THAT'S MARKETING..... ok that's not bashing , IT'S A FACT
then he said
and i totally agree
so i then came to the conclusion that, since forex gump told me this that
- IT'S PROBABLY A SYSTEM THAT WORKS based on what people have said
- but it's been given a name that makes it look questionable
simple as that
WHY DOESN'T HE CHANGE THE NAME to make it look more professional..... OH YEAH... BECAUSE HE'S A SURFER DUDE AND THIS IS THE IMAGE THAT HE PORTRAYS
ok.. i can also respect that
but, again, i wasn't bashing
I INTERPRETED WHAT WAS PRESENTED BEFORE ME and i think it's a fair interpretation
my interpretation was not based on hate at all, so it's not bashing
i then responded to forex gump CLARIFYING that i was not aware of this system
and i clarified this as well
Now.. YOU HAVE TAKEN WHAT I SAID HERE ............OUT OF CONTEXT
and decided to paint me as the bad guy
i have done everything i can reasonably do to make sure there were no bad feelings
i did what i did because it was a name that was not to be taken seriously
i'ts a surfer name, it's a simpsons name WHY WOULD ANYONE TAKE IT SERIOUSLY ?
the purpose of the name is to create a relaxed.. CHILLED, laid back kind of feeling
i'ts not a serious name BY DEFINITION and the intent when it was created CERTAINLY WAS NOT TO CREATE SERIOUSNESS, in fact , i would imagine it would be quite the opposite
a surfer dude does not inspire seriousness in people
a surfer dude inspires CHILLED FEELINGS in people ,hence the name of the system WAS NOT DESIGNED TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY
Whether the system works or not is a separate discussion
so.. why is there no apology
well. if you read this correctly , there is
the words I'M SORRY are not there, but if you read it correctly (As we SO LOVE to mention "THE TONE" of the conversation)
IF YOU LISTEN TO THE OVERALL TONE YOU WILL HEAR AN APOLOGY
IF YOU DON'T HEAR IT , YOU ARE NOT LISTENING CORRECTLY
because my response to forexgump was basically just that
it was a response of respect which had an apologetic tone to it
Whether you can hear it or not is another matter
then you came in saying that i was bagging him
Mate, i was not
but how you interpret what i say is another issue altogether
PS.. i'm trying to shorten my posts.. YOU ARE NOT HELPING THAT ISSUE
see.. because i now have to extensively explain myself, this post now becomes this long
and even though you can't see that
@falstaff clearly did
let's all go the lobby to buy ourselves a drink
does that clear it up now
