i think you are taking this the wrong way...
LET'S START AGAIN....
when we are here on the forum just like facebook or you tube, it's text, there is no tone of voice.. ok
so as humans we ASSUME the tone.
that's the problem
My intention here was.... I was just joking, i didn't mean it in a malicious way . ok hehe Relax ok
i think the main problem stems from this misunderstanding
"weasel disclaimer" can be used to both discredit a person, but then it can also be used jokingly and affectionately .. ok
i meant it.. Jokingly.
I know you did, i picked up on that right away
and for the record. hehe.. so did i when i came years ago, and they are bloody hard to find.. aren't they?
so.. I understand
I know.. i totally get that
Mate... I once put up a link to a video (just as a joke) i think it was Enter Sandman (by Metallica) I'm pretty sure it got flagged and removed hehe.... go figure huh
i then also at a point in the past, a while back , put up a link to a video that was helpful, it also got flagged because the Moderators' FELT THAT IT WAS SPAM
I understand being helpful... I LOVE HELPING PEOPLE.. ok
so i get it.
ok, fair enough
but.. IN THIS NASTY WORLD OF FOREX THAT WE LIVE IN
you can see how IT COULD BE INTERPRETED THAT WAY.... right ?
that was my point
because even the scammers come on and say "What.. what what.. i'ts not a scam. i was just posting" hehe
so.. clearly there is a fine line and we need to be aware of it
but everyone , of course has the right to defend and explain themselves
and there's no need to take an objection offensively
ok... LET ME POINT OUT AN OBSERVATION
because i think this was the big thing
now in this post to me you have written this
"I merely provided a name on you tube to access the free information"
QUESTION.. Why did you BOLD "Free"
and if you go back to your original post. you can see how much you are bolding stuff
but by comparison
Look at this bold text
here you said
"Fourth , it is NOT "some guys etc etc""
See... i understand why you bolded the world NOT, in this situation.
CAN YOU SEE HOW BOLDING THINGS when you are making reference to other sites and links can be interpreted in a messed up way
because, when you go on you tube , on forex channels. when you see the scammers with those templates
what do you see
you see keyword text BOLDED.. right hehe
and also.. yes youtube contains channels,
but , when forex is in question and you link to you tube.. cmon mate... we all know it's highly likely that you are linking to a BS you tube channel that will in turn lead to a landing page
THAT'S A FAIR CALL.... RIGHT ?
and.. i can totally respect that, but, i was just giving you a heads up because i know what they will do.
You won't hear from them
they will just ban you link and then send you THE EMAIL hehe
but fair enough, if you don't want to hear from me.. i totally understand that as well and i'm not angry about it.
"THE BRUSH OF SOLICITING " HUH hehe
Mate... after reading this sentence LOL
I KNOW WITHOUT QUESTION you are taking this the wrong way and way way way too seriously
if we are going to compare comments in this light
i could also say to you the following
"You sir a scoundrel , i will not suffer the woe's and agonies of your insults" LMFAO
but this isn't Shakespeare that we should be quoting "the brush of solicitation" of "The pick of destiny" or "the Sword of truth" hehe ok
You're a bloody legend mate... seriously... Brush of solicitation huh. hehe
Honestly, i was reading this... trying to make it right
i have my coffee in hand
and i read the words "Painted with the brush of soliciting" and the coffee nearly wen the wrong way up my nose from laughing ok hehe
RELAX WITH THAT BRUSH OK I'm not insulting your entire Generation line ... I just gave you a heads up.
anyway.. let's move on
ok, that's fine
and i'm not a newb, but i haven't been hear in like 5 years or something like that.. i don't know.
and i came back around 2 months ago i think.
I am giving you the benefit of the doubt
Mate, I'm from Australia. ....
WE HAVE 2 MOTTO'S IN OUR COUNTRY
Firetruck OFF We're Full (which is not relevant here)
I am giving you a Fair Go, I gave you a heads up. You just didn't see it that way.
and they are not completely based on misinterprations
MATE, THIS IS THE FOREX INDUSTRY.... Scammers are everywhere
IT'S BASED ON OPINION AND EXPERIENCE ... ok
but it doesn't mean that it has to be an insult
You also have a responsibility to understand the industry you are in and who the people in that industry are
so.. Take it with a grain of salt ok.
it's ok mate, i mean, you pulled out that BRUSH so i can tell how pissed off you are and deeply offended hehe
they were not completely false, there was some basis there
but again.. you need to relax, i'm not on a witch hunt, i just gave you a heads up
Try and relax ok
YOU ARE PART OF THE COMMUNITY MATE.. cheer up
here.... I'll give you a virtual hug.. ok
i'll ask the moderators if they can organise a secret decoder ring for you and and ID Badge
Relax. mate, You are part of the community and we are all mates here.. ok IT'S COOL hehe
now i'm going to take the opportunity to say.... SHEESH... ok hehe
and that's nice
but let me say this as well
BEING REALISTIC..... You WILL BE Misinterpreted again by random members.
it happens all the time
so.. as a Newb. Learn to handle it without argument,
believe me, mate, YOU GOT ME (consider yourself thankful)
i could name a few other people that would bite your head off like Ozzy osbourne bit the head off a bat.. ok
make no mistake , there are people on this forum who will not care , they won't want to understand or say sorry, because to them.. (to put it in your words, but seriously this time ) they believe they get painted with the BRUSH OF SHAME if they apologise, so , they won't
and the reality is.. You need to learn to deal with that
SIDE NOTE : I once watched a metallica video, and James hetfield was discussing with the band about the departing of jason newsted from metallica
and james said.. "what part was ours in jason leaving"
Meaning... Everyone has fault to some degree
You are partly at fault for you post
I am partly at fault for my response
well have to accept our faults
and people make mistakes.. there's nothing wrong with that .. ok
THE DIFFERENCE IS .... HOW YOU DEAL WITH IT
Now mate, if you were in sydney, I'd tell you to shut up, come over for a cup of coffee and we'd talk this out... ok
but you're probably not.. so we can't
so all i can tell you is this
Relax.. i didn't mean anything buy it.. ok
and I"m sorry for offending you , i didn't mean to.
we all have a different sense of humour, i have mine, and maybe it's not always understood
but, again.. being a part of the community is also a teething process and it's about understanding WHO ARE THE PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY and getting to know them
so.. Now you know me
I'm the guy who can give you a wall of text without batting an eyelid hehe (Even though i don't mean to, it usually works out that way hehe)
i'm the guy who likes to muck around a bit because i believe life should not be taken too seriously
I'm the guy who likes to help people
and i'm the guy who likes to work out misunderstandings
there you go, that's me in a nutshell ok
I will never offend you intentionally
there is only 1 exception
if you are genuinely rude to me and have no desire to make things right, that's the only time i will probably say something in return
other than that. it's likely a misunderstanding.
No it's not
and i think at this point, You are now Painting me with that brush a bit too much.. hehe
but it's ok.. I understand
and try to relax ok
put that brush away (Actually , throw it in the bin)
Sorry for the misunderstanding
you are part of the community and feel free to ask me questions if you have any.. ok
Happy New year
here's a smiley to cheer you up and show you that you're one of us
now if that doesn't work
here's a link to a simpsons video THAT I INSIST THAT YOU WATCH, THIS IS NOT A SCAM hehe
and if that doesn't work
here is another link
if that doesn't work
i'm gonna pull out the big guns and go with
Michael Jackson - Heal the world
Now. if that doesn't work
Holy crap mate... seriously, who can say no to michael jackson
if that doesn't work , sheesh mate,... i'm out of ideas ok hehe
happy new year mate
