No Greg, that it isn't what I said. It's what you chose to read because you wanted to score a point. As it happens, about the cheapest point you could go for. Godwin's law for the win, except that you didn't *explicitly* name the Nazi's. Lugging an utterly irrelevant reference to paedophilia in is just as vile though.

BTNG - given your inability to read what is written, I'm not surprised you missed the point. I didn't say I was 26; I said I was 26 years too old. In a humorous aside. To someone other than you. But you're another one who apparently can't resist the urge to try for a cheap point. You failed to score as well.

Gnu - what was uncivil about "I have to disagree Gnu. John's thread is obviously intended only to further his own agenda"? You didn't read any further, remember, so obviously you can't be complaining about me displaying some annoyance with the opening poster...

999 - Hello, sir! That sounds like Mr Murdoch. Have you changed your moniker again? As to your other remarks, first my apologies to John for sounding a bit irate, but I stand by my previous remarks. This wasn't intended to open a friendly, open discussion; it was deliberately provocative, heavily slanted from the start, presumably prompted by the recent publicity surrounding Joe Fraizer's death, and disrepectful. Then he complains that people aren't playing nice?

As to boxing, as I've said, I'm no boxer, not any especial fan either, but I object to the colourful & unnecessarily emotive labels used in the first place. It's a sport. People choose to climb into the ring. If you don't like it, don't watch it. And since it's entirely consensual (unlike, oh, say, genocide? Paedophilia?), if it's not to your taste, leave those that do enjoy it to enjoy it.
