: BASE727 Sorry if I,m late with my answer, I had some political stuff come up.

That's quite alright. I'm trying to save on my phone bill by logging on less often anyway. The postman is going to need a forklift to deliver it !

: BASE727 Rome was not built in a day some things take time

I think it's quite ironic that you use that proverb to describe the IWW's struggle !

: BASE727 Well I'm sorry you are not convinced by the IWW. There is nothing wrong with unionism, it's good for everybody.

Are you sure about that ? Everybody ? What about me ?

: BASE727 I can be very witty too, there are rules here and we all have to obey them to a point or your post does not get put up..

There's nothing wrong with being witty - it makes the post interesting. What annoys me is verbal one-upmanship and assumed superiority ! But Qx and I have sorted that one out, and are managing to be quite civil to each other nowadays. At last I convinced him/her that I don't have an agenda.
