Re: It's an outdated sport

Bill Badger.

You correctly state that in a previous post I commented on your anonymous status in reference to the use of e-mail. You replied, giving a perfectly reasonable explanation for withholding it, I accept that reason without any reservation,.
In the present thread, I alluded to it for another reason, you once stated in a reply,

"I would have preferred to raise this issue, confidentially, in private rather than in a Public Forum, however, as you prefer not to share an e-mail address you leave me no option but to use the only alternative route, i.e., this Forum"

Have you ever considered that Mr Tolan may also have preferred to answer your concerns confidentially, but no longer has the option to do so. Given the short time I've been using this particular Forum. Mr Tolan has never advanced a clear rebuttal to claims that he embellishes his account of those far off days. I see no prospects of it happening in answer to your recent remarks regarding a book publication.As for saying you have no entitlement, I accept, I may have written that in a less confrontational manner.

In reply to the charge of being selective, Guilty,I select those threads which interest me and offer no thoughts about those in which I have no interest.However your next offering to the conversation did disturb me. I take pains to point out that never, at any time, have I suggested that your participation in the Forum offends me, rather the opposite applies,as you well know, I recently applauded your efforts to inject life into what has become a rather jaded facility for discourse.

Finally in answer to Rods post. I understand what you mean Rod but I'm having a struggle with the concept of deciding I don't like something I've read if I don't read it first.
