It may be just me but you do stick up for nine bob way more than anyone else on here Sluffy and he seems to get far more leeway than the rest of us mere mortals.

Well you seem to be on his case.

Yet you didn't seem to be on Wanderlust case when he was calling me a wanker and that I had all these multitude of mental health issue.

I don't actual think he's called anyone an idiot has he (perhaps I've missed it if he has) but even so that's far from the worst thing that ever on here and I would expect most people to laugh it off if he had.

As for blockhead...?

I mean 'blockhead' for God's sake...?

Is that such a grievous word to use to get people all wound up as they have???

Of course not.

He has knowledge in his profession, just like you have in yours and I have in mine.

If I told you that you were talking out of your arse on something you clearly knew you were right about you probably wouldn't take it so well.

You would just argue the point until the cows came home no doubt, I'd write a book on it giving facts and reference documents, Bob's way seems to gently mock people for not knowing what they are talking about.

Just a matter of different styles really, do you honestly think you are being personally abused by being called a blockhead, as I would put that in the same category as moonman, numpty, nutjob, nob head, etc, etc.

Is it really worth people getting so worked up over someone saying blockhead or beeno, Ageing Adolescents, or whatever else he may label things - it's just his way surely?

Storm in a teacup type thing isn't it?

Surely?

I'd like to hear Bob's views on other stuff. Brexit, politics in general, slippers, books , TV, radio, food, drink, and uncle Tom Cobley and all.
He's under no obligation to tell us anything of course, but there's more to Bob than meets the eye. Wink
No, he's just a daft twat!

You’re not reading my posts. I don’t care what people post, they’re free to do what they want - so not sure why you’re going on defending blockhead as a term?

His position on the BBC is idiotic in my view, I’m allowed to tell him that - hardly going after him.

I actually do give you the respect to read your posts.

One of them said this -

@T.R.O.Y. wrote:Who's upset? I'm just telling you if he calls people idiots he can't expect not to have some back.

Now has he directly called you an idiot, has he called anyone an idiot and if he hasn't what gives you the right to get on his case?

His style of posting does seem to be some what abrasive and I can see how it rubs people up the wrong way as per Norpig's post above but if people think that 'he thinks' he's smarter than the rest of us, then so to do Wanderlust and Bread - and people liked them immensely.

If people think he's somehow putting them down, then I refer you again to Wanderlust and Bread who have been and are the most personally abusive posters this forum has ever known.

I can't remember anyone bar Karly telling them to wind their necks in when they were in full flow (nearly always at me) and I've had massive strops and tantrums from several off here when the duo's abuse, hatred and invective went far beyond any reasonable person's toleration and finally had to be dealt with.

And for the record they are both still free to post on here still if they wish despite everything they've thrown at me!

So we have an old bloke with his peculiarities and bees in bonnets banging on about stuff most people aren't at all interested (I'm talking about Bob by the way and not Bonce, just wanted to make that clear) and inferring that some of us/all of us aren't necessarily the brightest in his opinion.

So fucking what?

There's worse shit then that posted everyday on here - part of the sites eccentric, bizarre, unanticipated and eclectic ways and indeed makes it what it is and why (although there may be few of us) we still keep returning to it!  We are a theatre of the absurd at times but at least it's better than everybody being lovey-dovey and agreeable to each other without fail don't you think.

I do.

Christ if you don't like what Bob posts then ignore him, if thinks he's somehow superior to you in someway or other then let him think it, what does it matter really. who gives a monkeys  as to what someone you don't know or will ever meet thinks about you - I certainly don't.

Bob knows accountancy.  Bob is an intelligent elderly gentleman.  His views are his own.  I doubt at his age he will change them.

We either accept him for what he is AND he do the same for us, or we hound him off the site.

We aren't Aging Adolescents or a cabal who don't want to know the facts, we're just a set of generally decent folk who pop on to here for a bit of a distraction from real life, to catch up on BWFC and hopefully have a bit of a laugh/gossip/leg-pull/troll/argument/or whatever it is that rocks your boat, whilst we are here.

What's wrong with people, this is the internet and shouldn't be being taken too seriously!

There's really far worse things going on in the world right now to be overly concerned about what Bob thinks.

Isn't there?

Is his view idiotic, he doesn't seem to think so.

Who are you to judge him, who are you to tell him his opinion is wrong?

It's your opinion against his - fair enough but that's not what you said was it...

@T.R.O.Y. wrote:Who's upset? I'm just telling you if he calls people idiots he can't expect not to have some back.

...in fact it sounds more like a threat to me.

So yes I would say that was being on his case, it certainly seems like it to me.

Just for the record, Sluffy, I haven't actually called anyone (that is any individual) a blockhead but I will explain what I mean.

I mean someone who doesn't know the facts, doesn't want to know the facts and doesn't want anyone else to know the facts. And I have to say that I count my blessings in not having spent my life in the company of any blockhead.

Does  the cap fit some of the contributors on Nuts (or Ageing Adolescents)? I couldn't possibly comment.

But Bob calling everyone blockheads is -‘so fucking what?, there’s worse shit than that posted everyday’.

Give it a rest Sluffy, Bobs entitled to say what he likes, as am I. Nobody’s being threatened, abused or harassed so give it up.

Looks like Dale Vince's new 'investor' is Innocent Drinks who are sponsoring the stadium and looking for name suggestions:

The Innocent Not Proven Stadium
The Innocent Crappy Carrot
The Innocent Green Smoothie
The Innocent Nokendo Stadium

Any other offers

I have bought Innocent stuff in the past but its on the embargo list now with Walkers Crisps

Saying his opinion is idiotic is not threatening, saying his opinion means he will get "some back" for expressing it IS.

That's a warning of something will happen is it not?

threat

noun
1.
a statement of an intention to inflict pain, injury, damage, or other hostile action on someone in retribution for something done or not done.

I know you wouldn't have intended it as a threat as such and you are only being your usual self but Bob may not know that - and that's why I said it 'sounds' like a threat and didn't call you out for intentionally making one, -  what I did accuse you of was 'being on his case' - and you were!

Bloody hell you do know how to waste time dancing around a point Sluffy.

If you dish it out you should expect some back. That's true and fair, threat or not. Drop it now, if Bob's feeling threatened or harassed i'm sure he'll say himself.

Another article on the Beeb's tax avoidance can be seen below without having to subscribe to the FT:

https://www.contractorcalculator.co.uk/100_bbc_presenters_face_huge_tax_bills_ir35_530210_news.aspx

Contract Calculator describe it as a 'witch-hunt' though they are not exactly independent.

A further point about the Beeb is, how can it carry out unbiased reporting on tax avoidance when it has been found to be systematically facilitating exactly that for its highly paid presenters whilst also distorting pay differentials at the upper end?

The Innocent Until Proven Guilty Stadium seems quite popular whilst Ben (makes me sound like Jeremy Corbyn) suggests The Innocent Dale Vince is a xxxxx stadium.

Very popular on the Wirral is 'ar Dale.

Should put your obsessions to good use Ten Bob. Have a look at PPE medpro, a company setup in May this year with a share capital of £100. It has just won, without tender, a £110 million contract to supply PPE to the NHS.

Wonder what connections it has to have won that?

Peter Duffy was hounded out of his job in the NHS because he cared for patients more than anything else and blew the whistle on other doctors that didn't, to put it mildly.

All they had to do was accuse him of racism. There wasn't a grain of truth in the accusation but it was enough to end his NHS career.

He's now exiled in IOM with its anti-COVID restrictions keeping him from his family, home or both.
