Why getting into pissing contests on social media (or anywhere, really) is a massive waste of time best spent elsewhere or doing something else . . .

. . . but especially on social media I should say.

A while back I wrote that “infamous” piece about how I would not learn Chinese if you paid me to do so. And believe me, I MEANT EVERY WORD!

Perhaps that is why the article was such a resounding success in many ways i.e. came straight from the heart, and was true.

Believe me, my friend.

People can see past the BS, and while they may or may not like you (or hate you in my case) for saying it like it is, they WILL follow you to the ends of the earth to hear what you got to say if you follow that one rule above and KEEP IT REAL.

Ah, Keeping it Real in China. What a “nice” group that used to be before I gave it up. Lots of rants in there that would do just great printed out on a roll of toilet paper, as Uncle Bob once said about our communication (daily (hourly, actually, if not more) emails while bored shitless at the factories we worked at – long story).

But really.

That one article generate SO MANY comments that at one point I was literally hearing my phone beep every second. Believe me now and trust me later, yes, it did tick people off a lot.

I posted it in a China Facebook group of all things . . .

The irony. How dare I eh.

Well I did.

And the beeping is an exaggeration in that my phone  is always on silent mode no matter what. But the point stands, as do the notifications I got.

And guess what, they weren’t all hate and the usual “your racist” nonsense (it still befuddles me as to how Im racist by choosing not to a learn a certain language but for the mainlanders it’s their way or the highway, much like the liberal lunatic left, so that don’t surprise me one bit().

Some of the comments actually made perfect sense including some of the responses to the “hes a racist” chants which I’ve covered before.

And I did respond to a couple of comments on that thread (no more tho).

But really, mi amigo.

Its far better in most cases to NOT get into a pissing contest on social media.

In most cases.

In that case, it was warranted to a degree, but even then, I eventually took the fight back to my own den. My own lair (which most of those people that comment up a storm are too LAZY to create or foster).

The same type of people that badger you incessantly with idiotic questions and yet when you ask THEM questions about their own life or situation, they never reply.

“Will India defeat China?”

“China’s a powerful country! Can India defeat it?”

(just a couple of replies to a recent post and the guy got on FB Messenger for them)

Look, dude. Get on Google for fuck’s sake and then Google it .  . .

And when I asked him a question, of course. The question that mattered.

Resounding and ringing silence so loud it could have woken the dead.

As TEMB (who for whatever reason chooses to call himself “Eric”, hehe) said “no answer is often an answer with these nuts”.

And it is, in many ways.

I can’t stand people like that.

Nor those who say “I won’t discuss it publicly” and then pester me with 1000 voice notes for something that could be said in writing in one paragraph (usually the voice them justifying the non-existence of their point to themselves if that makes sense!).

Or those that say “my friends might see”, but I agree with you privately.

Dude (or lady) at least have the balls to say it publicly. There are extenuating circumstances on occasion, but far less than what most people make out to be, and the above two cases ain’t it for sure.

And yes, this email is mostly MARKETING, and I’ve already given you many different marketing tips, but before I cover the why, here’s something else.

Aside from fitness, I’ve made no bones about the fact that I AM a damned good marketer even if I say so myself, and CAN AND WILL Teach those interested tricks that will double, triple or even quadruple your sales in ANY Economy if I say so myself.

Believe me, if I can do it (and here’s proof) then YOU can too.

IF  you’re serious.

And if so, I can help . . .

But back to it. Because . ..

It accomplishes zippo for one.

Not only are you getting nothing out of that effort (and in most cases heartfelt comments with emotion behind them) but you’re rarely if ever going to convince someone to change their POV on most things.

That emotion might be best spent doing what I am right now, or with your SO (or on him or her) or other things . . .

. . . Things that matter.

IN certain cases, yes. Perhaps getting into a bit of a fistfight online may help if the person youre attacking has a massive audience.

But even then perhaps not . . .

. . . And if you’re Bozo Schofield for one that claims . . . ah, but we’ll get there.

These are the two main reasons why other than waste of time, and one last “monkey in the wrench”?

Or was it spanner in the works, hehe.

It’s well known that a lot of people hate my very guts, and existence. Much like Major General Michael once told me years ago “Rahul you hate my guts don’t you” (I didn’t, really!) . . .

But curiously enough it is these people who can’t resist following yours truly.

“lets see what he’s got to say”

(because deep down inside they know I say what is TRUE and what I say makes perfect SENSE).

“Lets get a couple of tips for freeeeeeee!”

And so forth.

And as the liberal left no doubt latches on to this post with renewed vigor (believe me, I might as well not post it on social media as people are going to look for what Rahul Mookerjee is sayin anyway even if the social media post isn’t out there) hey – I welcome it! ?

Go for it!

Oh, and if you’re Bozo Schofield on drugs trying to convince me “I have no followers and can’t market worth a damn” with a sum total of two followwers on Twitter yourself, one being an alter ego of you, and the other being ..  I don’t know, but the profile pic is so weird I won’t even go there … well, please  Glyn.

Do it if you must.

But really, you’re making a massive fool out of yourself.

Which you are, anyway, so I suppose youre being honest in that regard and kudos for that! ?

And there endeth this particular rant. The haters will find reasons to hate and the DOERS that GET SOMEWHERE IN LIFE will LISTEN – and learn

If I were you, I know which Id choose!

PS – If you want to apply for life coaching, send in your application right here. Be aware that I’m usually dealing with several things at once, so if you’re not serious or if I get a bad vibe off your email, you’ll be blocked pronto. You can wail and moan all you like later, but sorry, I won’t be unblocking you . . .

PS #2 – Here is where you can pick up the 10 Commandments of Successful Sales (that works in ANY economy bar none).

PPS – A certain poster who specifically asked not to be named and so I wont name him wrote in to say I was a pompous ass for saying “masks aren’t necessary” and I didn’t “value human life”. Yada, nada, schnada. All I can say to that? Ho hum! Hey, pally. China spread the plague and then of course disappeared leaving the ROW to deal with it, and guess what, hiding at home ain’t gonna make it go away. Might as well man up and get rid of it the natural way which is to ignore it and eventually you’ll see it as just the flu or other common diseases. Really, my brother. All it is is a version of the super flu, and that’s it!

PPS #2 – Donald Trump is back in office (I mean, back in the White House). Yippee!! Here’s to the one and only Trumpinator!
