Yes, that was haut qualite :)

p.s. I'm almost pining for a furious North Indian (with Masters) who hasn't received the answer that he demands.

for sure,all what you do is digging something, and its very clear what your dispositions are

namely,i am not concerned about all those unnecassary postings

p.s. Bit of a shame he's turned out to be a half-ar$ed troll too...

So you decided to mess up with ozi? He will come and meet all of you.
I do not think he uses a translating software (no, here I'm serious).

I don't think he does either, but I do think someone has been pulling his chain for years telling him his English is "excellent". I reckon it had to be a Russian pulling his leg but he actually believes it. I wonder if he talks English the same way. If he only writes that way for effect - it's having the "wrong" effect.

I had a few Turkish friends too. It depends which region that are from. Some do speak excellent English which put me to shame. A few just like Ozi The Uzi "short burst and WOWO(Wash Out Wash Out)

This guy is Russian for sure. He is clearly searching for us in this post...

Er, 1) He is Turkish not Russian
2) He went to great lengths from the get-go to impress on us how good his English is.
3) He's seeking our help. What effort he needs to make to absorb it is 2ndary.
4) He went through almost exactly the same thing a year ago (to the same general response), but even worse started using multiple id's. Just about anything is game versus such trolling. He's lucky his a/c hasn't been simply zapped.


Edit: typos


I'm not sure where "there" is but he seems to have a plan for us when we get there.

On a more positive note I have been making strives at keeping the spaces between my sentences to one. I've even added it to my last minute checks of statement disclosures before sending them out to clients. They seem to like me more, just like this guy :?

Employers in developing countries are more concerned
about age, while employers in developed countries tend to
consider many factors besides age. Age is a very important factor in the Nigerian labor market.

30 and an applicant? ? Agonies of the unemployed, over-aged graduates
http://tribune.com.ng/sun/index.php/fea ... -graduates

In its graduate trainees recruitment, which ended recently, one
of the leading new generation banks in Nigeria, put maximum age
of 24 years old for potential job applicants. The bank specifically
stated that any applicant’s year of birth should not exceed
1987. Many consulting companies operating in the country often
stipulate age limits ranging from 22 to 27 for job applicants.

In advanced countries, emphasis is placed on productivity,
competence and performance and not on age factor.
