Perceptions

In a reply to one of my comments elsewhere, someone used the expression "money-hungry wankers like you". There's no doubt, from the context, that the "you" referred to me; neither the original post and ensuing thread, nor previous discussions with the person concerned, had made reference to money or money-hunger.

There's a possible inference that the person concerned has held this perception of me sincerely, and for a while.

Poll #981475 Perceptions

Where -10 is "disagree strongly" and 10 is "agree strongly": The use of the term "money-hungry wankers like you" suggests the person concerned has formed an accurate impression of what DougS is like.

Where -10 is "disagree strongly" and 10 is "agree strongly": Mental health issues, while not an excuse, can be a legitimate explanation.
