I wondered how long it would take you to ban me... Unfortunately for you, I've saved the entire exchange, which I can now post on my site, without censorship.This is one important guy, after all, he has a famous dad. As it happens he could have commented and I was sure I let everyone know if I banned someone's comments. But anyway, being a smartarse and wanting to go to bed I simply responded:
A friend advised me that in any exchange you tend to get bored as soon as you think you're losing and promptly ban your opponent - usually without alerting your readers to the fact. I was hoping that he was wrong about you...
Am I correct in assuming that there's no longer any point in replying to the communist apologists in this exchange?
You've got a friend?And he came back and said:
Alas, you're not willing to defend your own character - even inNow all I know about this Paul Bogdanor guy is that his dad is famous (Paul gets an entry in Wikipedia for that) and that he is associated with David Howrowitz's FrontPageMag site. That's it. I don't want to know any more. Except one thing. Why is this son of a celeb in the UK asking me questions about where I live and who I work for?
I notice that you ignore my query about whether I'll be allowed to reply on communism.
Is it true that you're a council employee in Dagenham or somewhere similar?
This is a clear attempt at intimidation. I hope readers who have hung in this far realise that. Now, what do zionists do? You know, those respectable types who wouldn't say "boo" to a goose. Do they complain as never before or do they accuse me of being a "conspiracy theorist" as so many do even when the accused is acting alone and when the "theory" is a fact?
Ok, to conclude, this Paul Bogdanor guy is threatening me. Why else would he be asking questions about where I live and work? His illustrious father must be proud of him. Personally I think he's a low life trading on his father's name.
Now then, to bed.
UPDATE: Apparently the celebrity's son wasn't trying to intimidate me:
I'm glad you made it clear that you banned me.Some masterpiece I have to wait for. He logged all that he and I wrote but it's not quite ready. He just took time out to let me know that he knows where I live and roughly where I work. He was intimidating me but I was supposed to be so intimidated I wouldn't mention it on my site. And didn't I say that he would accuse me of a conspiracy theory for saying this? Even David Hirsh wouldn't stoop to that.
Actually my question about you was not a "threat" (more anti-Zionist paranoia and conspiracy theories - perhaps I'm planning to summon the Board of Deputies or the ADL!) but precisely that - a question asked out of curiosity, prompted by comments from other critics banned from your site.
I'm completing my own page on our exchange, which I'll send to you when ready...
