No. I've just gathered from your rants that you have a certain perception that is not tied to reality, and I'm calling you on it.
Most definitely because you exhibit haughty and arrogant qualities mixed in with a bit of verbiage. This isn't a discussion on the financial crisis; needless to say, it seems that making an off-the-cuff remark about ones displeasure of this particular industry (rightly so, I believe) seems to kindle the most invective reactions from some individuals (bankers or not). As I said before, many people have expressed similar views and when I say 'you're not fooling anyone' I mean that blanket dismissals of views as 'not tied to reality' simply won't do.

Anyone who makes any comments on this subject - and these are generalisations: I'm not writing an essay - is based on 'regurgitated knowledge' - what else could it be? But suffice to say, my views, and knowledge thereof, is gleamed from reputable sources - but tell me exactly, what 'knowledge' have I presented that is egregiously wrong? I haven't presented anything whatsoever - the only thing that seems to be the case is that you've got all emotional because I said I was 'unimpressed with the banking industry'. Cry me a river and grow up.
