I get the feeling that “HoinK” is still reading this, so I will briefly explain why I’m not interested (yes, this message is directed at HoinK). Basically, what you proposed is something I consider unethical, it would have been in response to something which was done to you which was also (and probably moreso) unethical, but by your own admission, what was done to you has been purged from the Internet.

Two wrongs don’t make a right, a saying which is not always accurate, but seems to be on this occasion. I appreciate the offer of employment that you sent my way, but I wouldn’t have been able to accept the offer, knowing what I would have had to do to actually get the job.

I’m sure you mean well HoinK, and I hope you get the issue sorted, but for my own reasons, I just can’t assist in what you had planned.

I would be happy to discuss this more in a day or two…I think we both need time to calm down and reflect after the discussion we had.

Offered you a job with ‘City News’ did he Samuel ? (chuckle).

I don’t think City Ads would even be a matter of ethics…more of journalistic integrity.

I don’t really want to go into what HoinK had in mind.

Hmmmm …… that statement of his – “long time reader, first time poster” –
Sounded as corny as the “long time listener, first time caller” you hear on talkback radio.

Attempting to offer you a job via msn does sound a bit suss

If you didnt want to go into what HoinK had in mind, why would you make a public post about it? Surely the matter should have stayed a private one between you and HoinK.

Its like when people say “Ive got a secret…but I cant tell you”. Why bloody mention it then?

Now people will try and speculate what the job was. Ive got some ideas…;)

Why mention it? Well because the conversation I had with HoinK was going nowhere…the only way I could make my point was to block HoinK and write a post which explains to HoinK quite clearly why I made the decision I made, and gives everyone else at least half a story to play with.
