Okay, for 'incompatibility' I meant inability to interbreed. I should have been clear, apologies.

sru: posters who cannot answer a question or contribute to a conversation will always resort to ad hominem argument, attacking the poster rather than engage in the actual debate. This goes on quite a lot on these threads. I call such posters, collectively, the "Forum Mafia"

Oddly enough, I remember a poster who repeatedly squawks about ad-hominem attacks accusing me of being a bible-thumper, in the middle of a debate about economics. He was at the time doing a lot of frothing and squirming to conceal the fact that he had no idea what he was talking about, so he presumably wanted to deflect the debate to a different direction.

There were two things which were odd about the incident. The first, obviously, was that it was a bizarre non-sequitur in the context of the discussion. It was a very obvious attempt to make a comment about me, rather than the argument I was making: in other words, a crude ad-hominem attack, from someone who insists that he never employs the tactic.

The other strange thing was that since I am an atheist, and I've never preached scripture to anyone in my life, to make such a comment to me of all people was particularly odd, even by that poster's standards. There was, however, a simple explanation. It turned out that he had mistaken me for another poster. Oh, how we laughed...

There is of course a name for someone who wags his finger at others and indulges in sanctimonious condemnation of something he does himself. Hypocrite.

Tom C: Who said my post was referring to you? Obviously you include yourself in the select group of moral and intellectual arbiters on these forums, for you would not post an ad hominem argument otherwise...QED.

TomC says:
It's very clear from the context that that is exactly what happened; he was trying to use what he thought he had learned about me in a previous context, despite the fact that it had no relevance anyway to what was being discussed.

Sadly, it backfired and he ended up looked rather stupid. Nothing unusual there, of course.

Ryan,

You and the Funboy could share notes, he is an author too.

He's not publishing anything. He's a twisted unregenerate troll who, in proof of his sterile brain, does not use a pseudonym as other trolls do.

He follows me around, baiting me because I have read some books by David Icke. He also thinks it strange that I view the vaccination of infants with scepticism. I point you in his direction if you want an image of what I fear for immunised children: viz, a young adult with damaged cerebral parts.

I did him the favour of opening one of his posts the other day, to find him moaning on about David Icke again, so I politely explained that I am making a contribution to Icke scholarship. He gloats over the fact that publishers flee such scholarship.

He will remain on ignore, and I will try to resist the temptation to open his packets of indigestion.

Jason: do not resort to the the methods of the ignorant. If you believe something, fight against those who disagree. Is that not the whole point of having a belief? Screw 'em, as the yanks say. Stand your ground and do not let anonymous, intellectually repressed slaves to the system dictate how or when you should make your voice heard. You have as much right to express your opinion as they do, despite their fallacious objections.

MCZ, go to Tooting in South London. I was married there in 1969 when it was all white. I go back there from time to time and it is now 80% Asian, 10% African and 10% white. It is a joy to walk through it as everyone gets on together and there is no feeling of tension. I have both white and Asian friends there and it is always a pleasure to go and visit them.

Burn every mosque and burn every muslim at the stake. That will solve the problem.

Hoots mon says:
Spin, one of your better posts. However you confuse Islamic religion with so called culture in Islamic countries. The bad aspects of these various cultures can be represented by female genital mutilation (Egypt and much of Africa, but including many Christians), honour killings (Pakistan and India), forced marriages (Pakistan), and subjugation of women (many countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, but much less so in Iran. However, the culture is at its worst in Pakistan and India where rape is often a "normal" activity).

It can be argued that implementation of women's rights in the UK is only comparatively recent. 100 years ago women did not have the right to vote or stand for parliament and anti-sex discrimination only passed into law some 40 years ago; the indigenous population of the UK still has too high a proportion of rapists. As for the first three perversions these are local "culture". The Qu'ran clearly states that those who substitute superstition for the word of Allah commit a sin punishable by hellfire.

As a Muslim, I do feel that the above superstitions should be highlighted and I believe that the Muslim community in the UK should no longer ignore them.

So, Spin, I think you are spot on with regard to this post. May Allah grant you the wisdom to build on these blocks, Mashallah!!!

Hoots mon, I agree with you about Tooting to a small degree. I live in South London and visit friends in Tooting regularly both the rough end (Garrett Lane) and the yummy mummy end (Graveney) and while it remains pleasant most of the time, due to the overwhelming numbers of one particular immigrant population. This has much to do with the council shifting the old locals out en masse in the mid eighties and replacing them with Asian tenants. While this may be a good thing for peaceful living, I absolutely detest the idea of 'ghetto-ising' an area. In my mind it does nothing for the integration and tolerance of populations. Don't be fooled, there is still a lot of crime in the area. I know someone who was raped there and others who have been robbed and attacked. Great market, Lido, common and curry houses though. Personally I prefer Balham, check out the B.B.C. (Balham Bowls Club) it is now a pub/restaurant but they have left it as it was, it's like being transformed to a 1940's RAF club and bar complete with ballroom upstairs. It's also cheap and full of pretty women!

I suspect calling the ignorant, narcissistic pile of human wreckage that is Jason Powell 'an author' is rather like calling Connect 4 an Olympic sport.

If you meant Simon, my advice to him is simply thus: just say no to drugs.
