    Default Ozchess Classifieds - Debaters Wanted Urgently - Good Conditions !

    A thread for anyone who wants to advertise the sale of their 1970's editions of New in Chess , borrow a lawnmower , sell a ming dynasty vase replica , hire a gerbil , whatever !

    I want to advertise to employ thread debaters , to assist in coping with the ever increasing demands on the infrastructure of the expanding ozchess enterprise.


    WANTED : OZCHESS THREAD DEBATERS - Good conditions

    As Axiom it is quite rightly expected that i resolve every nuance of every debate . And whilst that is the best option in an ideal world , there are certain practical limitations that prevent me doing so .
    Ozchess and its subsidiary entertainment conglomerate ozchessFM have undergone a great period of expansion due to their ever increasing popularity amongst the beloved punter public . It is certainly an exciting time heading the programming department . As new shows and new show ideas are springing up everyday . Two of our latest - " Bad Joke Busker " and "The CC Rider Show" , are really causing a stir in the public arena . It is though however taking more and more of my time.

    Which brings me to this wanted ad .
    It pains me to see debates end in loose threads , so ozchess is offering 2 positions with immediate start .

    1) We are looking for a climate change skeptic with a moderate scientific background . He/She should be someone not daunted by a challenge and willing and able to brush off vile hurlings of abuse .
    We currently have a rogue stud bull strutting around the forum with his little bag of science facts scaring the kiddies . First assignment will be to engage the beast , then quietly subdue him with pure science.


    2) Our Israeli/Palastine thread has stalled due to my promise of a piece on the non historical justification for the present state of Israel.
    There are many precis histories on the state of israel available . But we are looking for someone who can communicate the axiomatic salient points and debate effectively our learned ,esteemed and honourable member Igor Goldenberg .

    Such is the current state of the market we would consider candidates from what we refer to as " the other place" . Short term working visas accepted .

    We offer good conditions for both these positions-
    * We guarantee your safe passage on your travels throughout the forum with protection from the much feared and respected Hobbsy Security Firm , and our network of intelligence agencies.
    * You will receive free passes to all sb ozchessfm shows , with your own free guest spot to air your mind .
    * A special pm welcoming message from our founding father j2g.

    Candidates - no need to contact us , just join and start debating ! We'll keep an eye on you , and if you pass muster , you too could be on your way to a great role on the NOW forum or even stardom like CC !

    But do we actually have a global warming alarmist with scientific credentials who presents their claim with substance and arguments? Otherwise the specialist you are looking for is an overkill and will be well overqualified for the job. Also I doubt you will find a genuine "denier" - most are merely sceptics.

    Thank you for this message Axiom. It is essential to train our alliance in our Schilleresque proponence of axiomatic reasoning.

    Although I gather that you desire new recruits in these positions to strengthen our numbers, I will accept both positions if you are willing to modify our plans for the greater good of the public.

    Thank you Igor .
    I was going to use the word skeptic , but didn't like it much , so replaced it with a worse term !
    Corrected now .

    In my debate on climate change with Icon , we ended disputing the computer model's intitial scalar values just as in the monckton-jones national press club debate .
    Yes , we need someone to bring this bull down !

    Global warming eniers could be gaoled, just like holocaust deniers.

    To say "merely" skeptics is an insult. Scientists are the best at truth finding BECAUSE they are skeptics.

    Well Icon is not a bull, at most a slightly overweight calf. In few debates I could observed him in, he was struggling to supply either facts or valid arguments. Some of his pearls (like opening new chapter in mathematics by discovering 20 is an approximation of 10 which in turns equal 4) makes it difficult to take him seriously. If Icon is your only concern, then specialist is definitely an overkill.

    My friend, you've never experienced a Canadian winter. Once you do, you may realize that it is indeed possible that global warming is in fact an unproven and far fetched hypothesis.

    What makes this funny is it's source.
    Some of his pearls (like opening new chapter in mathematics by discovering 20 is an approximation of 10 which in turns equal 4) makes it difficult to take him seriously.
    A rule of thumb: if you can make a statistic on order of magnitude larger/smaller, and it is still a concern then you have to take notice. 200: or 4:1 both are unacceptable. I still stick to the ~20:1.
    If Icon is your only concern, then specialist is definitely an overkill.
    Step outside and give your global warning spiel a run. You are going to hospital.

    Yeah, I propose you come down to the states and experience these freezing ass cold temperatures. If anything I think my winters are getting longer and summer shorter.
