You know, he gives the kind of response that tries to make you think, "nothings insulting with what I said, you just think I said something insulting".<br><br>Reminds me of the Richard Pryor movie where his wife walks in to their bedroom and catches him with another woman in bed. She screams what's going on here, he replies. "Nothings wrong baby, do you beleive me, or do you believe your eyes".<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>"Nothings wrong baby, do you beleive me, or do you believe your eyes".<p><hr></blockquote><p>I remember my sixth grade teacher telling us, "Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see." Ahh, words to live by.<br><br>

The problem Ma Cherie, is that there is a tendency to put overconfidence before learned intelligence. Thus to say; things which belittle the actual intellectual ability of the overconfident arse who would rather insult than step down to a level of comprehensible commuication, with his/her peers.<br><br>The fact remains. Anyone can become a Graphic Designer. Otherwise there would be none.<br>Good Graphic Designers need to be trained. Talent does need to be nurtured.<br>Manners are an indivisible part of intellect. There is no way that a well trained and capable person should ever treat another as if they are an idiot.<br>The ability to comprehend what the customer is on about should also be a part of the training. The ability to communicate the best course of action to any customer is a prerequisite to success in your chosen trade.<br>The reason that Graphic Designers were chosen to be brought to attention was simply the fact that the most consistent offenders .. are . or call themselves Graphic Designers. This is not my fault. I did not give them the right to insult the trade practices of other Graphic Designers.<br><br>The fact that I can call them to accountability does not and should not insult anyone with any modicum of intelligence.<br><br><br><br>and.. please do not be offended that I chose your post to answer with this comment.. for it is really intended for others ears as well as yours.<br><br>The fact that I chose you to answer was more related to the fact that rife blame-laying has been being spread across the forum by those whom are incapable of dealing with an intellect of the equal to that which they claim to have.<br><br>The last thing I or anybody would want is to have the level of communication lowered to the point of branch stacking everyone into the idiot box.<br><br>I would prefer that the TGD's etc in this place(once again chosen because the same people always pick on him too) could actually have some attempt made to be treated as an equal and an attempt made to comprehend and incur comprehensive posts to and from. <br>Each of us does have something to say. <br>Often of great importance to the debate at hand.<br>All fun aside, I would like to see more attempts at communication than belittlement. <br><br>Everyone with intelligent observation will observe the people that I have drawn to account for their actions. <br><br>If anyone goes back through their posts they will see, to their dismay that these people by their behaviour, continually bring the trade of Graphic Designer into disrepute.<br><br>If those whom believe they are good at their trade, cannot see what I am saying then they are not destined to be good at anything.<br><br>Trör Ironbrow<br><br>[color:blue]The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough</font color=blue><br>

Being full of yourself is what makes you capable of your art.. It is your talent and if it has been nurtured properly, you will be able to feel your talent surging through your veins. It is a prerequisite for being a talented designer... or whatever you are/want to be.<br>There is nothing wrong with this in any way shape or form and I did not ever say there was.<br>All I said was that people who give themselves a title.. are full of themselves. <br>There is also nothing wrong with me stating the truth.<br>No sugar coating was implied nor added. No insult was implied either for that matter.<br>For one to take offence, does indeed mean that one has not applied their own intellect to the communication problem at hand..<br>Read into what I say, what you may but please do not accuse me of thinking like you. For everyone should know that this is impossible. Viva la difference!<br><br>I really do wish you to know that I have nothing against you personally, though your inability to comprehend my English does cause you problems with communicating with me.<br><br><br>For all you or anyone else knows, I may well be a asset to have as a friend. But how will anyone ever find out if they do not try?<br><br>Trör Ironbrow<br><br>[color:blue]The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough</font color=blue><br>
I really do wish you to know that I have nothing against you personally, though your inability to comprehend my English does cause you problems with communicating with me.<br><br><br>It appears you're having that problem with quite a few people around here... What do you suppose the solution is?<br><br>
