But his opinion is right, if George was truly the better bass player, he would have played bass! Paul was more than capable of playing lead guitar so if George really was better, why wouldn't they just permanently switch?

What you just basically said is that your opinion is right. Hell, I'm not even that self-righteous.

 


I guess what you meant to say was "Not even I am that self-righteous"? That would make more sense.

 

 

Indeed, I said I was right, and I backed my opinion up with facts, in contrast to you. You supported your opinion, that George is the better bass player, with "Faster", a less than mediocre bass line! (and let's not forget about Ringo being a better singer than J, P and g, LOL!)

Some people just like to get attention with an opinion that's different from any other's and far from any sense, and they like to force it down other people's throats, calling it a fact, and at the same time complain about all other people calling THEIR opinion fact IN MY OPINION.

 

Fixed it for you.

Ah, come on now. I think it's a given that any statement someone makes on here will be their opinion. I don't think it's necessary to clarify that each time.

Nope, you didn't, you just turned a perfectly logical statement – that was obviously too complicated for you to understand – into nonsense. Again, I think I know what you INTENDED to write, but you screwed up, I'm afraid…Remember when I told you about that clumsy English of yours…

 

Btw: Don't forget to change that signature, will ya? I remember you calling yourself a "hard-core-Christian" (whatever that means, I don't even want to know, I think). How does a picture and message like that go along with Jesus' message of loving each other and being meek?


It appears you don't understand what Video Games are. And also, you're being this dick telling me what is right and wrong when they're both opinions. I've changed since then, finally convinced that Paul is the better bassist IN MY OPINION IN MY OPINION (You need to say that more) but not from you. You have basically said that your opinion is right. Listen, you're opinion wasn't right or wrong and my opinion wasn't right or wrong. Also, I don't think you're in any position to correct my English. It is my native language.

Yes, I do. But since I have a family and full time job I'm not that up-to-date. I guess your picture has something to do with a VG? Still ugly and extremely un-Beatlelish.
 

And also, you're being this dick telling me what is right and wrong when

they're both opinions. I've changed since then, finally convinced that

Paul is the better bassist IN MY OPINION IN MY OPINION (You need to say

that more) but not from you. You have basically said that your opinion

is right. Listen, you're opinion wasn't right or wrong and my opinion

wasn't right or wrong.

Ooh, more four-letter-words, that's mature!

So, first you believed George was better, now you are "convinced" that Paul is better. So what you basically say here is that you realized your first opinion was wrong, agreed, Socrates? Good that we both agree now that my opinion was right from the beginning.

 

Also, I don't think you're in any position to correct my English. It is my native language.

Hah, you wouldn't believe how many mistakes many Germans make with their language! So English being your native tongue doesn't have to mean you are able to use it perfectly…

I think your postings speak for themselves…


No. Opinions are never wrong. If I thought once that one bassist was better than the other, then I think that. There is no right or wrong. Now, I think that one bassist is better than the other. That makes me wrong? You're logic confuses me. Oh, and my avatar has to be beatle-ish?

Oh so that's a videogame  avatar? That's interesting. I always assumed it had something to do with "Bull of Heaven".  Now I know better. 

OK, pardon my interruption. Carry on!

I think this discussion is perfectly clear. The thing is, I've regained some of the respect I lost for paulsbass. He seems not to care, however. Still hating me because of my preferences.

Yeah, I noticed that…
 

So, why did you change your opinion then, if it wasn't wrong??

 

Oh, and my avatar has to be beatle-ish?

 

No. But it helps, on a Beatles site…

You're looking for other people making fun of you? That explains a LOT…
 

And you. Also, he didn't say "this thread is even worse than the other one", he said "MY opinion, is that this thread is even worse than the other one"

My definition is different from others. Mine is: Nudity, violence, anything that subjects the reader into thinking an altered state then what I originally had thought.

Ok Paulbass, to be honest, I don't understand anything what you say that if Paul is a better bass player than George or whatever. And to honest, I just overlooked the answers because I don't care about this thread.

 

But something that caught my eye was your critic to Mr. Big for his signature picture. He can choose whatever pic for his signature if he wants. In fact, I'm going to prove my point.

 

Edit : I got a new signature pic!!!

Of course he can, that's his right. It's my right to express my disgust about his choice. Love your's, btw!a-hard-days-night-ringo-6
 

Indeed it is. I find it beautifully disgusting. See, I don't find it against your right if you insult me, as long as you tell me why you hate me and what exactly I can do to "please" you. I won't do it, hell no, but it would be nice.

OK, I'm locking this. It's going nowhere and I've had enough.

If you want to row go and play on Livejournal or MySpace or somewhere else. If you keep derailing threads with arguments that go nowhere I'll have to reconsider your posting rights.

It's not just the fact that you're having an argument – I really don't mind people disagreeing with each other – it's that they always descend into irrelevant pot-shots and name calling. I'm trying to keep this a pleasant place for Beatles fans, but new people will be put off joining if it's taken over by this sort of crap. Keep it relevant or keep it shut, please.

Forum rules.

3. Be polite and respectful to one another. It's fine to disagree with someone, but don't be abusive.
5. In general, try not to be too off-topic when posting in a thread,
although obviously some of the most interesting discussions can be
wide-ranging. People will probably let you know when it's time to give
it a rest.
7. Users who abuse the forum may have their accounts terminated, but this is a last resort.
