I do intensely dislike the way in which fora such as these are used to damn those that don't use them, but by & large whether we do is up to each of us as individuals.
However, I very strongly believe that 'deducing' incapability of people not present to undertake a future role yet to be defined, is by some distance, a step too far. To publicly state it about people who are potentially, colleagues of the future concerns me on a number of different levels.
My view of candidates - as ever for what it's worth - is that they (we!) should be displaying the sort of behaviours & values that we expect our club to. For me this includes politeness & courtesy.
My suggestion is that if we can't, we should keep quiet; particularly when the point at hand revolves around some ridiculous hypothesis.
Was that aimed at me Jon? If Yes, just as well I damned those who have failed to engage by any additional means than 100 words on a ballot paper and not just on here.
I think you are too sensitive:) We know within certain margins what is expected of us and if people did not, why stand?
Values? For me plain speaking and having purpose top the list, ofcourse, it is good to be polite in doing so, which is what I always try to maintain. Firstly, if I wish to make a point I politely address it to the person by name in the case of individuals.
My suggestion is that although coming from different positions we should all be Argyle fans and want the best for our club, so say what it is you want and how you will arrive at it. Keeping quiet has virtuees at times but often is an excuse for laziness.
I look forward to the PASB if we are both elected/selected as I am confident in our own way we will ensure we get our point across for the common good. In doing so I hope we take time to listen to the contra view.
