Open Thread for Avi

with 6 comments

One of my few commenters, Avi, is a veritable whirlwind and I would freely admit that I can’t keep up with his output.

Under WordPress many comments have to be moderated, and it is a bit of a chore for me, so I prefer discussing matters on other sites (HP, Shiraz Socialists, etc), it is a bit easier on my poor mind and fingers.

However, as this approach doesn’t seem to be acceptable, I have created a thread just for Avi and his comments.

Please feel free to contribute.

I shall pass a jaundiced eye across it once in a while, but I find the stream of consciousness type of discussion not to my taste, I prefer to discuss tangibles and specifics, but don’t let me stop you from having a good rant.

  1. avi,

    do whatever you like, I won’t try to tell you what you must do, even tho you are happy to do that to others.

    I have tried to be patient, assuming that somewhere there would be some connection between your ranting and my desire to understand these issues more.

    clearly that isn’t the case, thus I don’t see any dialogue between us as being productive, I answer specifics, you rant, I ask a pointed question, you avoid it, you attribute views to me that I do not hold, I get annoyed.

    can I suggest that you try pickle politics, open democracy or Lenin’s Tomb? and if you get stuck then there is always the Peace Palestine blog, still better try Jews Sans frontier, they always like a bit of Jew baiting there and are not too concerned with historical accuracy.

    I feel that the latter will be more in tune with your thinking, such as it is

  2. Modernityblog,

    So I rant and you are patient. How lovely. You don’t ask pointed questions and you wriggle out of answering specifics when it doesn’t suit your agenda.

    You paste people with views they don’t hold and liberally paint people and when people say anything about you then you start to complain. Are you sure you are not related to Moanie Phillips?

    I don’t Jew Bait as you put it. I highlight issues that you won’t even dicuss in your world.

    Typical that when you won’t discuss points then you call someone a Jew Baiter, hoping that brush will absolve you. It won’t.

    There is little comment on your blog for a reason – namely you don’t listen. You dictate.

    I suggest you link to the neo-con blogs as they are more in tune with your thinking.

  3. avi,

    no one has explained this to you, each blog sets its own rules, if you don’t like them go to another blog,

    that applies to me when I am on other people’s blogs and you when you’re on mine,

    don’t whine, and please lay off the slogans about neo-cons, they are rather childish

  4. I’ll lay off the slogans about neo-cons if you lay off the slogans about Jew-baiting.

    I am happy to follow rules but on blogs comment is allowed to forment discussion this is why blogs are popular.

    I commented on the points you make and as I didn’t agree with you then you started attacking me.

    I’ve seen you on pther blogs have a go at people but you don’t like anyone answering your points.

  5. If whining is defined as highlighting issues such as the rights of Palestinains, the racism amongst some Jews and how many are indifferent to it. Te vile statements of Chief Rabbi’s goign unchecked. The neo-cons are their absurd hatred and rhetoric. The yes I whine.

    You don’t like to hear or discuss this which is fine. But I will highlight this as I do anti-semitism as all these things including anti-semitism bring hate for people simply for being a different race or gender.

    As it is your blog you are free to say I whine. I say you are indifferent to the suffering and racism directed to others.

    you talk a lot of bollacks, which is why you are banned from pickled politics and here.

    I have had enough of your rantings.
