|If you guys can't scrape together 18 votes, then why should I listen to everyone whine? Besides, you'd get me out of your hair for a while.|
Incredible. You think that sharing your admirable ideas should be done only to a sizeable audience of your liking, otherwise we are not worthy of them: We only need to know they exist, and are compelling.
Those are some serious illusions of grandeur, Mr. Paley.
|First, you guys would be three steps closer already if you'd quit making excuses and just vote.|
Excuses? Excuses for what? You post this, and it's us who make excuses? Tell you what: My vote is for owning up to your promises as best you can. Is that an option in the poll? No? Then who's making excuses?
| Second, I'm not saying I won't deliver if the minimum is not reached, I'm just saying I'll continue as before.|
Which is... not delivering?
So, why 18 votes, Ghost? Why not 8 (as the actual debaters the models were promised to were)? Or why not 20? Or 100, for that matter? How'd you come up with the number? What does it matter? He11, you're only arguing with the same 4 people in the media thread, why not bail out from that too?
It is you who has promised all these things. Now, even if just one person was waiting for them, you should deliver; It is what everyone in this forum (even the ones that are not interested in any of your "models") would expect you to. It's the HONEST thing to do.
Saying "I'll only do it if, say, "x" people tell me they're interested" , AFTER you promised it, is... Well, you tell me what it is.
You are a debater in this forum, Ghost. Not a performer. If you can distinguish between the two, that is. Stop looking for an audience: Just deliver what you can from what you promised. Or what you "have time to", I don't care. Call it what you like. It's the only proper thing to do: Everything else is looking for a way out.
A look into DAVE HAWKINS' sense of honesty:
"The truth is that ALL mutations REDUCE information"
"...mutations can add information to a genome. And remember, I have never said that this is not possible."
