Has nyone noticed that the Gary north is a BFI page took off that ridiculous message? Glad to see they are paying attention to this board...lol

Maybe we should have some attitude here and rename this forum 'John Koskinen is a big fat idiot.'
Naahh.....that's a bad idea. Always use verifiable information. Skip the ad hominen comments and stay with the facts.

gee, but if they're right and we're wrong, they shouldn't even care what goes on over here, should they?

If they're right, and we're wrong - they wouldn't be interested in reading anything over here anyway - right? Wouldn't it tend to confuse them?
But if we're right, or more nearly right than they are, and they're wrong, or more wrong over there than we are over here, doesn't this indicate they're getting more worried over there about what going on over here than they are over there about what's going on over there? (This is starting to sound like a WWI song I know....is their food fit for fit, or food fit for the food? )

Just sose you lunkheads don't make TOO big of fools outta yourselves...the page was more than likely re-instated because of an influx of newbies (or youse peoples, posing as newbies) who just don't "get it" sheesh...did I really just say that? Good God...now I'm using silly 'y2kspeak'.
I can guarantee most at BFI don't care what goes on here; 'cept for the entertainment value, of course!

They also aren't very concerned with providing evidence to back their rosey predictions, Nachu. Neither are you...

Who cares? Sure, I was there, ONCE. I was also at Gary South, ONCE. Who cares? <:)=

I was over at 'Gary North is a...' the other day. Followed a link somebody from there posted here. Somebody over there had heard the speech by Capers Jones somebody on this forum had linked to.
The person over there at 'Gary North is a...' wanted to know who Capers Jones is.
For anyone who doesn't know, Capers Jones published a must-read white paper entitled 'The Economic Impact of the Year 2000 Software Problem in the United States.' Mr. Jones has the same kind of credibility that the Gartner Group has or used to have.
I might add in passing that I have never posted a message under any name or alias at that 'other site.'
