Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Once again your summary doesn't reflect reality, this time in tone.

manon: what makes you so eminently qualified to judge events?  blind faith or something more substantial?

6 mins later...

manon: no answer.  I guess blind faith.  And I thought we were all hip people who didn't put much faith in blind faith.

Those are arrogant, belittling comments that were not justified (by what you want to say about Jerome or by anyhting else). Colman stepped in with his twelve minutes comment to wisecrack... OK, it didn't work... and suggest manon was overdoing it.

Later, DoDo explained that he didn't reply instantaneously because he was looking for data. And when manon didn't reply to a question of his, he pulled out the "twelve minutes" clause. The troll rating for that was obviously ridiculous.

BTW, I asked manon three-quarters of an hour ago what she meant by "open for business". I mean to get an answer.

You already did, and manon is obviously pissed off.

"manon is obviously pissed off"?

What, by me now? Wowee...

No, not by you. Just generally pissed off enough that I wasn't expecting a constructive answer to your question.

I'm not sure what constructive answer she could make.

Then what's the point of your question?

I'm not out to challenge you on the Pentagon business, I haven't got a fixed opinion on that. But no one challenged you on that comment which had to do with the thread, the site, how it's run. So you've just got little me in your way on that one.

Let me point out, manon, that you have distributed troll ratings, while no one, afaik (if I'm wrong forgive me) has troll-rated you. And you have slung around some pretty high-handed comments about other people's capacities and qualifications. I don't think you are justified in passing yourself off as a victim.
