Re: hatem, stop this now
In reply to Maxven, Sep 22, 2001

consider this post from our friend:

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1018&message=1530572

after being castigated, he backtracked and posted this:

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1018&message=1532113

how quickly he backtracked was evident.

or these:

and a couple of other threads that have disappeared, which was filled with statements as "saddam is an operative of the cia, or that 1.5 iraqi children have died from the weekly american bombing, and that madelaine albrigt was the mastermind behind the luxor bombing" and such, which i find quite frankly, hard to believe. it would no doubt be easy to misunderstand his posts, considering how his thoughts have been all over the place. i have however, refrained from chiming in on a thread started specifically to denigrate him becasue i feel it is uncalled for, and no matter how i disagree with him in some regards and find some of his posts frankly quite unbelievable, i believe that he has the right to post his opinions just as i should presumably have the right to post mine.

the links he posted, imo, were attempts to back his previous claims, one was a rebuttal of his own claim (500,000 as opposed to 1.5 mil) and others glaringly one-sided in presentation. can you then blame me or anyone for misunderstanding his intentions?

If you read Hatem's message and all the links provided, it seems to
me that he's being ironic and in fact in support of Yue's post.
Hence the "Yue and Hatem...".

i don't know even think he knows what ironic is; his words hardly
support yue's post, he probably was contradicting himself that's
why he asked himself to stop. but that's just a possibility. guess
that's not far-fetched, considering how convoluted some of his
posts are.

omaha, I just looked though some of Hatem's posts to see, if I was
reading him right. I think I was. Read this, f.ex.:
