Ron,

Your lengthy posting reinforces my point. There are so many assumptions in your message that I feel discouraged as i am writing these few lines. It suffice to say that your ideas affirms a single view of what constitutes to be an Argentine and a tango dancer. Such ideas seems to come from an outsider's view and reflect a position of dominance (it does not matter if you have been to Argentine a 1,000 times.. your ideas are still filtered by your experiences).


The most dangerous part of your behavior is that you really do seems convinced that your construct of what count as being Argentine and a dancer is the "right" one and can be so simply reduced to a few lines in an email.

Dear Amaury,

After reading this post and your previous one, and comparing them to
the one Ron contributed to the subject, I have a few observations.
Your first post contained a lot of vagueness relevant to the subject
only in a peripheral sense.
Ron's posting was clearly structured, clearly formulated (with proper
sentences which actually make sense) and possessed of internal logic.
It presented a number of points which can be easily examined and
therefore discussed.
Which is something you, in your posting, obviously refuse to do.
Instead you simply dismiss it completely without even bothering to
engage with its substance. The little bit of content that you manage to
convey is exceedingly vague and frankly wrong in terms of how it
relates to the actual content of Ron's posting. No counter-views can be
made to your post because it doesn't contain anything that can actually
be answered in a meaningful way.
Why am I bothering to even write this?
Simply because I am fed up with people moaning about the zealots but
never actually offering viable and well-presented counter-arguments. I
always enjoy reading dissenting views if and when these are actually
thought out. Your posts were not. Please try again.

Andreas
