Re: My final word

Posted by Filip Geerts on 02/15/2005 04:11:22 AM

Hi Jeremy,

I participate discussions for quite some time already. In fact I become very experienced. One of my experiences about "high-fever" discussions is the fact there's practically always some "misunderstanding" going on. A reaction which isn't supposed to be a devastating one is experienced as very devastating by readers who are very closely connected to the issue. In this case me and Sabrina were absolutely not that happy when we read the comments. The radio-issue, the "very average" - "very disappointing" descriptions were a pain in the ass for us beer lovers who want to promote some Belgian quality beers. We really expected some 'positive'notes on Dickie's. Me always raving about this place, which is appropriately, and Sabrina doing very 'big' efforts to make this place as beery as possible. The place 'needs' good promotion these days. Sellin good belgian beer in beer pubs these days is not easy. Dickie's facing a crisis now and the beer choice will diminish. the least Dickie's can use is some negative critisism now. I compare wil a bull-fighting. The bull in it's final stade. Hurt and wounded and in the mean time very tired. Your comment felt as the bull was given the final and deadly sword stab. What you did found as 'not-so-bad-critisism' is felt as 'very' destructing for Belgian beer in general (yes, you read that very correctly. And it's always those tiny and small remarks that hurt the most!! The fierce replys are just a reaction and a healthy protection. For me I just think there is a misunderstanding happened. Nobody is lying, I'm sure of that. it's also very important when having discussions like this one, that we do not insult eachother. Some kind of netiquette is really on it's place here. Basically I should say. Jeremy , I never called you a liar. Read my postings very carefully. You'll see that I only stated that Sabrina is no liar. Believing and trusting her would insinuated that I should think you are a liar? False this is. Note that human nature is always with faults. Everybody makes mistakes and our memory shows very frequently some gaps. believe me, we're facing yet another misunderstanding. In this case I'm confident that there are NO liars ! And I'm already surprised this thread doesn't show any insult at all (apart from Sabrina's Italian outburst ofcourse, which I understand completely :-)).

We should talk this over at 't Brugs Beertje with a good BBBourgondiër next to us. See you on 4th march at 't BB !

Cheers,

Filip
