To Dhimmi -
Submitted by Michel (United States), Feb 16, 2007 at 18:45
See my posting above (proof and an invitation)...
How much more do I have to deliver, until you concede that you were utterly off base, thinking that I posted under different names. (sometimes just under Michel though)
My website should now really corroborate (to an extent, as it is apolitical) some of my info shared about myself.
Some more circumstantial evidence: spaces indicate, when ttheir websites were updated last - in my case way before my first posting here.
I further do indeed in the classic manner of a member of Toastmaster Intl. try to continuously incorporate new words and expressions I see here into my own vocabulary. And Yes, I try to read every article linked and offered, and also learn from this entire experience in order to better my English as well as learn more about the topic itself.
Come on, Dhimmi - Plato is as versed on the Koran, as you are and could easily exchange with you quote by quote. If I had that arsenal....I may have engaged with you on a theological debate.
Lastly - my invitation and challenge for a direct skype conversation stands - I have no baggage, nothing to hide and, if you are willing to actually live look me into the eyes, you will see every statement about myself confirmed. In that sense I think I went way beyond anyone else here.....
Can you guys honestly and in all fairness still label me as "coward"?
I guess, it is hard to digest - but no - I am not a Muslim, I am neither Plato nor Chris, Hamri, plumber, etc., but a simple minded, boringly normal white caucasian business exec, living in the mountains above Ojai, California with a couple of dogs, a cat and 30 chickens. Nothing more and nothing less.
The ball is in now in your court. I hope you'll take me up on the offer.
