Anything that makes you think or feel uncomfortable is bound to tiresome to people like you. Check the time signatures between my last response to chogall and his renewing the argument. Three weeks...renewing a disagreement long since gone stale, who's stirring what? Jumping in with nonconstructive snark entirely unrelated to the subject being discussed...sound like bone fide shit to me. But then the details that make up reality is not something you seem to respect.
You ask why I responded to him ...the simple answer is because in just the same way that you and a few others take offense at me answering valid questions with the full weight of first hand experience and certain knowledge (none of which you can muster for yourselves), I take offense at pretense. At people presuming to give advice to others with sincere questions when they haven't earned the right to give advice esp. bogus advice--such as yours about taking responsibility.
I take offense at you pretending to be interested in these discussions for any substantive reason. That's your MO. Even when I'm taking offense at poseurs, I am conscious of the subject at hand and addressing it. What objective did your post serve? You didn't add anything constructive to the discussion about fitting...it's been my experience that you seldom do. You just jumped in because you wanted a piece of the action. It is my suspicion that the reason for that is that you don't have anything constructive to say. At least you're honest in your ignorance. That's a step in the right direction.
It's offensive to see people damn rationality and objectivity in what seems a single minded quest to make everybody in the world stupid. In their quest to pretend to knowledge and expertise and authority they have not earned.
Evil and stupidity will triumph...everything points to it. We can only hope to hold it at bay for a little while, only hope to shine a small light into a few dark corners.
You see your problem is that you dont understand why people have a problem with you, or are willing to concede that anything you do is wrong, I have absolutely no qualms with you giving advice, knowledge and sharing your expertise in fact I actually do respect the knowledge you have and do find it helpful, but it's very hard to respect "you" when you have to constantly separate the slights of character, snide insults, mock arrogance and condescension splattered all over your posts.
If you feel that I do not add anything to this site then that's your opinion, it's wrong but you're entitled to it, I know that I have helped several people on different threads here with facts I know about footwear. Not that I should have to justify myself to you but I have actually worked with RTW shoes for over 10 years, I have fit people up in person and have regular customers who solely shop with me because of me. Now I dont say anything about this because I dont like to brag, after 10 years I know that there are many things to learn with shoes and many gaps in my knowledge but I would never knowingly try to state something as fact that wasn't, however I do offer things up for theoretical discussion.
I am not a chemist, I am not a podiatrist, I am not a shoe maker, I do not tan leathers but I have some knowledge which has merit so for you to label me and others as e-warriors is not only inaccurate it shows your own ignorance and unwillingness to hear anyone else opinion.
I understand now though that trying to discuss anything with you is a pointless task. I wish you well in your business and Im sure you make very nice shoes.
