Avatar is a fine forumer. You were not around since Sept 2002 to see his view.

You Giorgos, are a traitor going anti-Australian but living in his soil.

Haha - since when have I received as much vitriol as you? I cant think of many people telling me I am stupid or a looser - save for yourself and your cohorts. Anyway, why would you receive the bitchy comments for me - Shouldn't I be the one that takes receipt of comments directed to me or am I missing something? You have a strange way of disseminating information.

The socalled 'bitchy' comments you make are lame - all you do is reguritate what is thrown at you and ad in a bit of bad language. You can't even be original in your attacks all you do is dig yourself deeper with each comment.

Last time I checked I wasn't anywhere near 41YO - where the hell did you get that idea from? Unfortunatly way off the mark. BTW I love how you just make things up like that - shows just how you operate - you just pluck things out of nowhere to suit your arguements.

Yawn now I am bored again. You have been argueing with other forumers since you joined - you simply haven't stopped. I got bored with you last time and now I am bored with you again. 11 months of ignoring you was great but I can't sit back and swallow all the crap you feed these forums. I am not the only one either.

The music kept playing and the fireworks still came when they were supposed to.. so it wasnt that noticable... plus it goes to show u how good the games were if the torch getting stuck for a minute was the only problem you can pick out HA HA HA. Empty seats at the Olympics is WAY more embarassing in my opinion...... SHOCKING!!! LOL!

Dont forget the Athens organisers looked to Sydney for help. So have Beijing and London.

That is how good the games of 2000 in Sydney were
A BENCHMARK for future Olympic games

So true - it's not like governments and organisations hosting the future games choose to employ staff with an unproven track record. They chose staff from Australia and SOCOG due to a belief in the professional and essentially flawless delivery of the Sydney Games - sure there were teething problems as there is with any major event of this magnitude but as rondeez states... a benchmark.

Christos is one of the best forumers here. He states his opinion without insulting people. You are just as bad as Landos, giorgos. For you anyone who doesnt agree that the Athens Olympics were shit is a Sydney hater.

What a load of bullshit. I don't think Athens was bad, I am not against people that disliked Sydney's games. What I am against is hypocritical and stupid assertions raised by some.

I disagree the twisted and ill-informed comments some frequently make. If you notice I only started posting in this thread recently. The big G has been in arguments with several forumers for months - some of them not even Australian. I don't often use the C word directly at people on the forums either.

I have no problem with informed, rational discussion. It is prefered. Unfortunately some don't seem to understand.

The torch got stuck during the openning ceremonies. Maybe that's "flawless delivery" in Sydney, the rest of the world was embarassed for you.

As for Avatar, he sets the bar just a wee bit lower with every post he makes in this forum. He hasn't added tangible content to any subject in all the time I've been here. Just more bla, bla, bla as Mo Rush would say. I note-not with any real surprise-that he hails from Sydney. Probably was part of the Olympic Torch lighting crew for the Sydney Games. The torch probably got stuck when he flicked his reefer into the gearing just before opening ceremony.

You don't understand a word of it, either. Informed, rational discussion may as well be in a foreign language for all you're going to get out of it.

Custodial only. Always a few career opportunities swabbing toilets and adding the mints to the urinals. There's a few in this forum that could just handle those responsibilities without taxing their capabilities too awfully much.

Oh am I?

Well excuse me for quoting your post, I had no idea we could only comment when it was required or asked of us.


I didn't forget you avatar, I didn't forget our past conversations. I remember them quite well actually. (maybe you don't....) I remember you constantly invading Greek topics having to do with the Olympics and hijacking them with a few of your friends, constantly putting down the Athens games. I remember going head to head with you and your many baseless comments on the games, and in the end, when I did prove you wrong (as I was much more familair with the games than yourself) all you had to say was you were in it for "kicks and giggles" (something to that effect) and you enjoy going back and forth with people, in these meaningless conversations, which is evident yet again here in this topic. Thats the first time I really lost interest here, because I realized most weren't here to discuss the games, and share information and enjoy the forums, but simply to be jackasses and insult each other and each others countries. You are no different from Landos, although you try and do it much more descreetly. You had behind some kind of ridiculous moral highground, when infact the core of you two is the same. This place would be alot better if such posters and comments were ignored, don't you think?

Feel free to comment on this post by way, just incase you feel it isn't required or asked of you.

When are you going to wake up to the fact that some people are just biased against Greeks, Christos? They hate and envy us for our history of cultural accomplishment. They hate and envy us for our contributions to science. They hate our national pride.

You can't be nice enough to them to make them like you. You can't meet them half-way. They're going to hate us no matter what we do, so why waste your time trying to get along with them?

Frankly, I resent your putting me on the same level as these troglodytes. They couldn't hold a candle to my background, education or career accomplishments. You really need to wake up and smell the coffee, Palikari.
