  1. Hi Baron. Thanks for your comment. Frankly, I don't have either the time or inclination to waste on the people who are ignorant (and I mean that in the correct meaning of the word) or have too much time on their hands. I have discovered that in this world, there are people who have too much time on their hands, and write stupid, senseless and often hurtful things on sites and pages where comments are allowed. The donkeys who come here (and they know who they are) are not the kind of people that I want to associate with. Life's too short! I am old enough and wise enough to have learned that!
  2. Frankly, having some of these donkeys in the Forums means that I, and others, don't come very often. I can't be bothered with garbage posts, ignorance, and just plain stupidity. Life's too short, and there are many other forums and interesting sites on the internet to visit, and particupate in. These people with multiple handles and ignorant posts are ruining what used to be an interesting dicusssion location. You will note that I have been here for a long time (check my number) and used to be a reqular, frequent visitor and occasional contributer. Now, well....fewer visits. There definitely are fewer people to offer interesting and intelligent discussion. You know who you are, and the donkeys know who they are.
  3. Dumbest thing I've heard our government doing. [and the current government has done some dumb things, but that's another thread!] What it mostly shows is how little they know about how the Canadian team is outfitted, how it is organized, etc. Minister Lunn doesn't seem to have given MPs any info about the team, including the FACT that the federal governmetn has less than zero influence on team prep. Credit to athletes who haven't commented on such a boneheaded idea.
  4. My best guess is that the court will dismiss the case, saying it doesn't have jurisdiction in an event that is the property of an entity based in another country.
  5. It's "angelikzusa." Didn't have it when I responded before. Some sort of base level of participation would be a good idea....say 5 posts related to a thread, not just some baloney?
  6. One solution to this issue is to retain events as they now are, and have both men and women compete in them, together. This avoids the issue of adding an event so late in the game, and perhaps not complying with the IOC's rules about world- wide participatiuon in a sport/event.
  7. can we get rid of this "angelizika" or whatever the name is? I keep getting emails from that person.
  8. Thanks. Let's hope he/she doesn't assume another ID. And, while I am here....I still haven't received any answer to my question posted ages ago about what all the little symbols mean, e.g. the little blue boxes, etc. I posted in in the 'questions for moderators' section at the bottom of the site.
  9. I also received another PM. I sent a msg yesterday afternoon to Moderator asking to have that donkey banned.
  10. Why do you say that? What's the evidence?
  11. Agree, although it depends upon each country's OG aspirations. Lima is probably more interested in the OG than Bogota. It also now depends upon the world's economy, and that of each of the countries. If the Colombians could marshall all that drug money, they'd have more than enough!
  12. Yes, the article in the Toronto paper said November, but the next PASO meetings are in Ocotber.
  13. At the PASO meetings October 9-12.
  14. Can hardly find the "content" for all the advertizing!
  15. Hello Mod....I have asked before, and didn't get an answer.....where on the site do I find an explanation of the icons that are used? e.g. the little blue boxes, etc and now, the stars that are posted after 2 of the topics? Or, if it isn't posted, please answer somewhere I can read it! Thanks
  16. I suspect that costs to actually run BC Place will be high but manageable. On-going costs for the large venues in the USA will be intersting to see. Many cities in Canada are very careful about building facilities that the taxpayers don't have to pay large amounts to actually run. So, they may have fewer bells and whistles but they cost less to run after they are built.
  17. Thanks. Done. I expect my list will increase!
  18. I totally agree. My visits have become less frequent because of people who make ridiculous comments, who don't know what they are talking about (and have no desire to learn facts rather than just pass on unsubstantiated gossip), who dominate a thread with stupid comments.....I could go on. I'd be glad to have the Mod(s) ban some of these people, and am definitely willing to name them.
  19. Would someone in this thread please explain the gymnastics competition? This sport has been going on for 11 days now, with one day off I think. How can it go on for so long? Surely all these athletes have done routines on every piece of apparatus already! It's getting tiresome, isn't it, tuning in every evening to NBC (Americans, that is) and seeing yet MORE gymnastics? Please enlighten!
  20. Women Sunday at 10pm ET Men, Monday at 10pm ET The link below takes you to a great "tracker" of all the events. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2008/08...S_TRACKER.HTML#
