It is Taufik's miss if he doesn't get into the list of AE winners to join the many greats who have made that list. It is not AE's loss at all. To me and many others all we remember is who won the Olympics, WC and AE which puts AE in a class above the rest of the other open tournaments. Not bad for an open tournament who until recently was only a 4 star tournament with low prize money. Nobody is going to pay Taufik to appear in any tournament let alone the AE.
Nobody is calling Phaarix or any young person stupid or unwise. What I was objecting to is you comparing Phaarix with enterpreneurs and wise leaders when nothing so far in his posts suggests that he is in that league or anywhere near that great company. Nobody is calling you stupid either so there is no need to get defensive by stating that your IQ is above 100 I think it is safe for everybody to assume that. I am not trying to prove anyone wrong although that might be the effect of my long and well thought out posts. I love being challenged in a debate and I wish others do more of this by putting more thoughts into their arguments and back up their opinions with reason, facts or even some evidence rather than expect people to take their opinion on faith or face value. I guess I indirectly I am provoking them to challenge me as I enjoy a civilised and intelligent debate as you can always learn something from it. I am not the source of all wisdom either so I gladly would admit my views are flawed if the other side can produce better arguments backed up by facts and good logic/commonsense.

There's no doubt that your posts are well thought out sabathiel . Yes it's obvious you do enjoy a good debate. Sorry I can't really give you that, I'm not trying to make excuses or anything but right now it's not the sort of thing I want to put all my time into . I just wanted to say what I had to say in this thread.
It's good to have someone like you who doesn't lower themselves to insults as I've had once or twice on this forum and others. I don't respect insulting and swearing as a means to "win" a debate. But I certainly respect a person who can understand that not all minds must think the same.

We are not going to reason well together because mostly mine are hunches (based on observations over time and swift data scanning; I'm quite strong on research with figures.)However, so far my hunches score around 70-80% ,enough to be successful if I were in business. I'm not going to match you on time and stamina so it's my pleasure to hand you a TH HKO walkover. For now I'm just going to enjoy your posts without responding.
