Harry, you are right about my response being harsh.

However, I have very little patience with an individual who comes late into a picture and starts acting like everyone else is an idiot while he alone has the answers.

Your first statement ("I've been looking at some of these messages and nobody offered anything of value

said all there was to say about you. You are arrogant and self-righteous, and basically have no respect for anyone else’s opinion but your own. This present response from you shows three more things; (1) you lack the courage of your convictions, (2) you make empty-headed statements, (3) you play the victim.

One is true because the moment your concepts are questioned you back off from your original position and actually change it. Two is also true because, after evidence is presented to you that your position is wrong, the truth comes out that you had not done your homework in the first place and had made claims that you knew were false (your first post said that you had been looking at the posts and "NOBODY offered anything of value.” Your second post â€"The ONLY messages that I saw were the ones posted by Djakout and FEW other individuals

Hence, you offered two contradictory statements.

Finally, three is true because when your arrogance is challenged, you cry foulâ€"like a child who gets chastised for doing something wrong and than screams â€"why is are you so mean!!!I hate you, I hate you, I hate you

Regarding you degree; I don’t care how many degrees you have. There are plenty of people on this blog who have no degrees but who offer very good constructive ideas.

However, if you are going to come on board and the first thing you say is that â€"nobody else offered anything of value,” and than the second thing you do is to ask a question that has been discussed and answered many times on this blog (â€"Now how is it that countries like the Bahamas and Barbados have incomes 10 times that of Haitians”) than you should expect people to send you to learn more about the subject.

Knowledge and wisdom are not gained just from books, and my mother used to say that good manners and tact are never learned from a book. From looking at your post (â€"nobody offered anything of value”) the later is your weakest area.
