Discussion:
The genesis of a thread on Goanet

There has been feverish activity on Goanet starting with the thread who is a
Goan which was turned into citizen issues. Then came a sarcastic post from
JC the open letter to NRGs. Tony de Sa countered it with a letter to RGs.
Now the threads seem to have coalesced and there is a remarkable amount of
cross posting across threads.
Ultimately the debate has become an issue between NRGs and RGs with a few
posters for NRGs and a few posters for RGs. Somewhere down the line
intertwined in these threads is a considerable amount of Samir bashing from
NRGs and of late Tony bashing.

These threads have become so confused so much so that we now have a
situation which is something like NRG v/s RG.

It is being tinged with acrimony, personal attacks and stunts like one
upmanship and last wordism.

It takes two to tango and in one post if you try to score a point, then I
can always retaliate in the next. This provides extremely entertaining
reading and one can hone ones skills in the art of sarcasm, cutting remarks,
and ripostes.

I enjoy the game and very often, my personal belief may not coincide with
what I am writing. My good friend and co villager Professor Augusto Pinto
explains this by saying that we have an internet persona and a true persona
and the two may be at a variance with one another.

But let us stop to ponder: Is this constructive? Is this in the best
interest of Goa which this forum is all about?

Let this post not be misconstrued, This not to say I am retracting from the
positions that I have held hitherto. I am ever ready to engage in a wordy
duel provided the argument is logical and to the point and not meandering
into lanes and bye lanes (a specialization of some posters).

Shall we entertain or shall we build?
