It seems that Greg Brooks Vs John Stuart sells a lot of newspapers around here.
As for my own take: For years I have been writing on this board. I have always been happy to do my own thing, and to contribute fairly to other posts. I do not need to sell this, as I hope my record, (and the search button) speaks for itself.
Yet, sometimes on occasion, I will contribute positively only to be shot down in flames by Greg. On other occasions, he has started (for no obvious reason) only what I can describe as hate mail to flame me for the fun of it.
How do you think this makes me feel?
I do NOT dislike the man. I do NOT know the man.
Each time he appears, HE begins the problems.
Each time a problem kicks-off, I extend an olive branch, which for some reason only infuriates him more, but I am damned if I will turn the other cheek, every time he kicks off at me.
If this was indeed a fight, I would like it noted, that I do not start them, nor do I attack. I do use self defence – as why should I allow him to continually strike at me? Perhaps a bigger man could walk away, but I am only flesh and blood after all. (Besides, I would be interested to see how other readers were to react if they to were continually provoked after trying to write positive informative replies).
There is NO queenzone rivalry, and there is not grudge or bad blood on my part. I do complain that I feel QPL are very amateurish for such a large company, but surely I am allowed the freedom to hold to that opinion?
This is not a whining ‘feel sorry for me mail’, rather my point is, do not believe that some fierce John S. Stuart vs. Greg Brooks rivalry exists – because it does not on my part. If this appears like spamming, I apologise, but I too am a guest in here, I feel comfortable here, and I too learn like everyone else. When Queenzone gets it right – it gets it right big time. So perhaps the way forward is simply for both of us to ignore each other
I personally feel that is a backward step for all I believe, but for my own sanity, (and the sake of others), it may be time to draw a line in the sand and say ‘enough is enough’.
(To Greg: I wish you well, I wish you continued success and happiness, and whatever you are really searching for, I hope you find it).
