    You see me as narrow minded? That's a first, and probably the last way I would have thought of myself... hmm

    I'm not sure how much leeway HP can give on personal attacks but I would be very interested in an honest, 'Gloves Off' evaluation of me and how I come across.

    As such I'm not going to post anything else to this thread. Let me have it! I can take it. (I think)

      Well as you have asked, this action means you are willing to grow and see beyond narrow mindedness.  So, do you think you are narrow minded now? smile

      Why would you care what someone consider you ?
      Don't you know who you are ?

    Actually, "narrow minded" would be the first thing that came to mind if asked to describe you.

    As a matter of fact - reading this request, they got in the car, dropped the hood down and fired up the V-12 - Narrow and Minded.

    I like your posts. I have seen a broad spectrum of thing from you. Narrow minded? Nah!   big_smile

    I do not see you as 'narrow minded' , honestly I see you as pretty open minded. smile

    I haven't read any of your posts, but if Mark says you're narrow minded, I'll say you're not just because I haven't disagreed with him for absolutely no good reason for awhile.

    No. I've seen you pointing mistakes of both sides and i can't consider you as a narrow minded.

    Let the record of those who attack you, stand to serve as a witness of their true colors.  Name calling is beneath even a two-year-old.  Why?  Because it's coming from adults.

    You and I have not entirely seen "eye to eye" on a great many subjects.  At least we are civil to one another.  I acknowledge your privilege and freedom to speak and participate on HubPages as anyone else.  From what I've seen, you've done so in a genuine manner according to your own beliefs and your own educated reasoning.  Many here could learn from such integrity. 

    For what it's worth you are a model hubber in many ways. smile

      So - answering an honest question genuinely. Is that an attack now? Oh yes - I remember when you asked a similar kwestion and then argued with anyone who answered honestly.

      Thanks GoldenPath - you are an inspiration to me. I will never be like you.

      I love how you turn everything to be about you.

      Very special.

        I am truly sorry for that painful rectal exam you had in your youth, however, I have been on the receiving end of your bashing for some time now without even the slightest reply from me.  I am sorry there are mental issues which have made you think that my previous post was aimed at you.  It, obviously, was not.  The thread was intended for comments on a specific participant - not you.  If you would like the attention of such a thread then might I suggest you start one.  I regret to inform you that I would not be posting on that thread because I rarely like to mince words with you.  It's unproductive and only serves to your amusement.

        Now please utilize this thread for it's intended purpose - constructive criticism of the hubber in question.  Thank you. smile

          Bashing? How so? I love to watch you at work. Really - I am impressed. Very good work dude. Can I call you dude?

            I have no problem with "dude".  It far outweighs the former "sweetie pie." 

            If nothing else I am everjoyed at the opportunity to amuse you with my posts. smile

              Excellent - because you certainly are funny dude. I take it you are male then? Sorry - confused with the gold ring and stuff. But - I know you are not so tall. - Don't take that the wrong way - I like 'em small. 

              So - can I call you "little dude"?

              1. goldenpath profile image79
                goldenpathposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                You may call me what you like.  I am here to put a smile on your face.  As far as the ring is concerned, I'm sure you have read my post a couple weeks ago explaining it's significance to me.  Yes, I am male.  It is a recurring revelation to me each and every time I enter the golden room of the porcelain throne.  Yes, I am small.  I'm a whopping 5' 3.5" tall.  Believe me when I tell you that I have to claim every bit of that extra half inch.  I don't smoke, but I imagine standing on a piece of cigarette paper would increase my stature four fold.  smile  Of course, I have a reason for being such height - it's a learning curve.

                  I am sure I would think there must be a reason for it if I was that short too. Pretty sure I would be as defensive as you are also. My wife says she is 5 foot 5 and a half as well. God help me if I say she is 5 foot 5. wink

                  Good for you little dude. Although - when I was racing motorcycles - I sure did wish I was that small. Makes a huge difference to the acceleration. You ever think about motorcycle racing or being a jockey? Seems that is what God made you for.


                  Cigarette paper? Hmmm not so much. Couple of microns. I certainly wouldn't notice the difference.
                  Now lets get back to Mikel's 50/50 thing.......

                    True, but for short people like us (Umpa Lumpas) we notice every little altitude we acquire.  We humbly bow to your towering stature. smile

                Mark - It is obvious you are seeking Golden just to harass him. You have a serious problem. Holly

                  So, just trying to follow the topic of the thread ... does the fact that Mark is harassing Golden mean that Mike IS or IS NOT Narrow minded? big_smile

    You have clearly put a lot of thought into your philosophies.

    I think you must have a pretty chronic headache though, from your constant eye-rolling.

    I think you are an interesting guy Mikel.  I would not consider you narrow minded at all.  I have enjoyed your hubs as well as your conversations in the forums.

    if there was anyone for me to consider narrow-minded I would have to go back and re-read all the forum posts first!  lol

    Seriously though, from what I have seen most everyone seems to understand the spirit of debate in the forums therefore I cannot consider anyone who participates to be narrow-minded.

    No, you're not narrow-minded at all. You're very intelligent and you seem to weigh both sides of any issue before stating a well-informed opinion. Whoever wrote that must not know you very well at all.
