Where did I say I had a problem with expats slandering me? I said many expats seem to be backstabbing, rumormonging pussies.

 

But switch that to read what you wish. You have proven my point better than I could have myself.

You've stated that you're the target of malicious gossip more than once...should I dig up your posts?   

As for Filipinos, I've traveled most of my life and always pride myself in relating to the common locals.  It seems to be a wasted effort here, except for a very few open-minded locals who have something going on in their own lives.  Those friendships are enduring and will last a lifetime. Maybe you have the same high standards, but you portray yourself differently, for whatever reasons.  Perhaps, that is the confusion here.

 

Good day.

Do I need to dig up the post where you called the locals smiley faced idiots or do you recall it?

Dig it up so you don't misquote me.  I said avoid those type of locals because they are mindless idiots.  Big difference.  Your credibility is taking a nose dive with posts like this.

 

edit: I didn't come to this forum to make trouble, but some of you are argumentative twats and/or completely full of shit...and I'm gonna call a spade a spade.

Agreed.  Some are.  But you are calling out the good ones and making yourself look argumentative, IMHO.  You have been here 7 years so you must have a clue about life here.  If you got to know, in person, some of the guy you are calling out then you would likely understand them much better.

I suggest taking a breath and looking at things from the other persons point of view, as I am trying to do here and now.

You seem to be the king of misquotes, yet you are afraid of being misquoted?

Misquote me again, and you will have the distinction of being the first person I ban from the site.

I have far more problems with the expat populace than I ever have had with the locals. The expat populace seems to have a very large percentage of backstabbing, rumor mongering pussies.

So I was wrong to infer this statement as you having been a victim of malicious gossip?  If so, forgive me.

I seldom drink Red Horse, and only if cold Pilsen is not available. Red Horse is the only beer I like with Ice in it, and that is the way I prefer it. It also has a tendency of giving me the gout, so I usually avoid it if at all possible.

Rich or poor, most Filipinos seem to prefer Red Horse.

Okay Shadow we do agree on something Red Horse is good with ice and most people do prefer Red Horse including me if nothing else is available, it sounds like you have a nice open meeting spot for conversation, I don't live in a city but if I did I'd probably do something similar.
