Oh comon Don, what complete tripe.Of course you 'big noted' it, you said along the lines of 'since I've moved here I've learnt the world doesn't work how it does in little old Australia'. The really funny part is that you're not even aware of the fact that you're doing it.
I explained to you why I expressed a view based on lie experience here. I did not big note it. If I just made the comment without the Dubai experience reference you would have called BS on that too saying I had no evidence.
You are forever posting non stop views of how the economy and everything is. Whats your experience or justification for this? It has everything to do with non-resident's perspective because you play on that almost weekly. I could ask this Q of you "Don't you get how you come across?" LOL and there you go doing it again! Completely unconsciously fulfilling my prophecy that you'd:
And then to top it off you (not so) subtly tell me that I don't really have a right to an opinion on an internet chat board because I don't have the life experience that you do. You completely and without a doubt prove my point -
- Post again on this topic
- Claim to have superior knowledge to me - yet again.
And I think at this juncture I need to remind you (as I've reminded others here from time to time) that this is an internet forum. It's not a peer-reviewed journal, it's not a national newspaper, it's not a current affairs program that should check their stories for some semblance of accuracy. We're all here to express some kind of opinion - we're free to rip apart each other's arguments and we're allowed to criticise each other when we think the other person is wrong. That's the whole point.
Oh grow up Don, you live in Adelaide a point you have made in the SA group. "People don't live here don't know what its like" or words to this effect.
If someone has experience or education over someone else of course they are going to see the same thing from a different angle.
Once again you playing the victim, "... tell me that I don't really have or a right to an opinion on an internet chat board because I don't have the life experience that you do."
You know full well I intended no such claim."We're all here to express some kind of opinion - we're free to rip apart each other's arguments and we're allowed to criticise each other when we think the other person is wrong."
Yet you have made no attempt to rip apart my comment, but rather plat some sort of BS victim crap and smeg because I made a reference, a reference you asked for of why I don't agree with you. Did at any time when I made that statement I said you know nothing, your opinion is not worthy, no I just I disagree and this is why.
So how about it Don, how about you don't bitching about "woe is me" and we get back to China, because as you said, "That's the whole point."
