Would you mind...Not at all !

Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose
in response to reader comment: To Janus - would you mind...

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Mar 20, 2007 at 18:58

Hi Michel ,

Well, our Dr. Pipes uses to spread the word not only through his articles and weblogs but also participating in conferences , so I wonder why we shouldn't follow his example ? Why not organize a little conference for the participants of the forum ? I am for your proposal and hope others won't mind giving this opportunity a chance. It has nothing to do with converting anyone or imposing one's views by force or by shouting. These Moslem methods don't work in our little Kafiristan.

Technical problems and time differences could somehow be solved and adjusted , I hoped.

> The nice thing is that several people could chat during the same conference. I'd love to see MM, you, Janus, Plato and maybe even Dhimmi in the same virtual round table...isn't there a slither of curiosity to find out if all these lables are correct or not? For myself, hell yes , I am curious to find out....

I am for it too. If there is a will , there is a way.

> But hey - it's just an offer. Your call, if you want to continue to play with time delayed paper planes... no offense to the wonderful world of the written word intended.

Yes, but I assume that conversations can't replace written remarks completely. It's in a written message that thoughts are formulated most clearly and a more intricate evidence can be included and later checked by the interested reader. Both oral and written utterences have a role to play. It's rather bad when one thrives at the exclusion of the other.

As far as I am concerned my username on Skype is "Nephelobates".
