*TO ALL POSTERS IN THIS TOPIC*

Disclaimer:

You will no doubt have noticed by now that Sairla and I have a specimen of dubious mindset following us around seeking to make himself popular with serious posters here.

Any attempt to set the record straight enrages him but that cannot be helped.

In his posts he has "quoted" sairla and me falsely, substituting words she and I had never used ...'putting words of his own into our mouths' that he then extrapolates from to attack.

Examples:

http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia/TI...
http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia/TI...
http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia/TI...
http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia/TI...
http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia/TI...
http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia/TI...

He also makes some bizarre allegations which most here will probably recognize as demented.

He will probably continue to sabotage this Topic as he has no concern or consideration for other site users, including yourselves.

This is a good opportunity to introduce him and his MO to you.

I do not intend to respond to him here, so any further disruption he causes is strictly his own choice and on his own responsibility.

Lol, how do you figure that?

Most if not all Linux OS's are open source code (anyone can view it).
Ask Microsoft for a look at their source code, the answer will be no, if they bother answering you at all.

We have a fair go ? There are only the same two parties that get elected every time.
The system is set up so that only Labour and Libs can ever get into power.
Its only democracy by name.
Its hardly worth voting.
I think voting should be abolished, it would save money.

They succeeded.

My reply was to what I quoted.
What does me owning a gun have to do with your stupidity?

You should come back to Australia from Thailand for a while & see just how far it's gone backwards lately under this pathetic so-called leadership.
Things don't change rapidly after voting & certainly don't move forwards.
The only thing that matters to the government scum is having 100% control of everything.

You have no idea about Australian politics if you believe that rubbish.
The greens never said any such thing.
It was the democrat's Don Chip that said it in 1980.

You should come to Thailand and interact with the geographical future of our country. You will be suprised.
While you are here you might ponder the fact that Thailand has a murder rate of 4.8. The same as the USA. But they have 9x more gun murders than the USA. Why is that?
Do you really think that Australia should not have introduced medicare, a revamped tax system, private pension(super) funding and gun control aimed at avoiding mass shootings by Bozos?
You really need to travel to a country that has land borders with the 300 million muslims in the region beset with incursions on a daily basis.
You are beginning to sound like someone who has never travelled out of their suburb.
How you like me now. Or do you prefer when I talk statistics.
