board ethics

ive noticed a lot of pure bunk going on at the boards as of late.

i dont like getting called names and getting teased, as i am sure a lot of people dont like.

(motti and bossk--im talking to you!)

if it continues as it has today, im leaving. plain and simple.

when i post something, i dont want it automatically shot down. if its some off the wall thing, i dont care to be told 'grow up'. its called sarcasm and humor most the time in fact.

i just want to say im tired of being under attack on something i spend my recreational time enjoying.

Afraid I was going to leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?" "I'd just as soon kiss a wookiee." "I can arrange that! You could use a good kiss!" -Han and Leia-

if its humor and ironic, then maybe you should post a little icon, like or or or something to let us know that you are being ironic or humorous... its harder to convey a sarcastic remark with only words...

my brand of humor is very dry. i laugh at things that you all probably dont even comprehend.

i have inside jokes as well that i play over in my mind.

just stop attacking me. i feel really battered today. you and bossk have ganged up on me all day.

i havent ganged up on you with bossk, i have already before today shot your posts down and told you to "grow up", so its not a new phenomenon...

youre implying that youre smarter than me... dont make that mistake again, without having solid proof.

no you dont comprehend them, because they are inside jokes. you dont know me, therefore you cant know what my inside jokes are.

Guys, calm down. I don't want anybody to leave. All of us can have bad day. Give each other a hug and let's get to some serious posting, OK?
I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

oh fine. ::hug::

I don't want anyone to leave either but NileQT you really have to respect other people's opinion's and stop taking things so seriously...
I mean I could tolerate your first post in the "trekkie" thread.... even though it was kinda rude of you... but then you go on again knowing that your not gonna like what you see in there and post another comment about Star Trek sucking...

I mean comeon... the guy who started that thread is a new member of these boards and by you saying things like that it could prevent him from leaving himself.....
and also if you don't like the prequels that's fine... but don't start bad mouthing them without having a valid reason why you are...
I dislike the prequels myself you know... and I find it nice to be able to talk about them with you knowing that you will feel the same way...

but to say something along the lines of "Hayden is just something nice to look at... he can't act .... and he's not even nice looking, blah!!" (just an example)...
what does that have to do with the prequels being a bad movie??
cause an actor is not good looking, or doesn't look like Harrison...

I have no problem with you or your opinions but please try and consider other people's.... and please think before you post...
I quite frankly want things to go back to normal...
and if you want to leave that's fine... but I'm not attacking you here... I'm talking to you like i would with anyone else...

so don't take this the wrong way... I'm just trying to point out to you what it is that i'm sure people have been noticing about you lately...
please let me know your thoughts on the matter...

I am not attacking you NileQT. Nor did I once make fun of you (please find a single example). I was shooting down your comments because your arguments were weak and not based in fact. You seem to think that everything you say goes, regardless of if it's correct or not. If it's not your way, it's the highway. And I, for one, am tired of it. The rest of us give each other crap, but we put our little emoticons by our messages so people don't take what we say seriously. People know we're either ribbing them or being sarcastic or whatever. No, I don't necessarily like every Star Trek film, but I'm not going to tell Trekkie or Jay that they suck because they do like them. That's effectively what you said. You told them that all Trekkies suck. Did you happen to read the guy's forum name? It's TREKKIE! How the hell is he supposed to take that? You preach about ethics but don't follow them yourself. You tell us not to gang up on you, but you slam others.

And, it only looked like I was stalking you yesterday. I go where the new posts are to read what people say. You and I were the only ones actively posting yesterday afternoon so I wound up reading all your banter. And shooting it down because I didn't agree with you and your weak arguments. You claim to be so well educated (graduating high school at 16), so act like it. Think through your comments before you post them. That should be the number one rule in any forum.

Think... then click "reply to thread"

Couldn't have put it better myself. I wish I could go back and redo all the posts that happened when I got in that shouting match with Jedi Master DJR. It's all fixed now, but I am a lot more careful about what I post. The last thing I want is to be misunderstood, and I think that goes for all of us. How is GL supposed to take us seriously if we're all sniping at each other?

i go through bouts of depression where im witching with a b at everybody. sorry. its nothing new and its hard for me to control. ive developed a severe sarcastic and pessimistic streak in the last few years and its not uncommon for me to blab negative stuff. sorry about the trekkie thing. i forgot to look at the screen name. im very opinionated and for gosh sake i do not compare everything to harrison. mentally i definitely dont. i do think intelligently, but when it comes to the computer i just blab whatever comes to mind. delete my moody posts if you like, but im just saying i have a tendancy to be quite negative when it comes to my stubborness. you are right...i do think in terms of my way or the highway. notice i dont have any wish to marry? theres a reason that im fully aware of.

favourite trek movie??!? what the fuck?!?!

they all suck, just like the series!



Motti...dont even go there. you posted this before i did the snl comment.

you got battered for this too, however you did apologize.

sorry to people that like it. i happen to not care for it.

im sure star wars fans are just as out-there as trekkies.

im out-there. i have no problem with admiting that bit.

It's cool QT. Sorry to hear about the bouts of depression. Let's just chalk it up and move on.

We cool? I would hate to have Dayv Force choke me.

I wish I could rephrase and take back alot of the things I said as well. We all have bad days, and as long people are willing to stop, apolgize, and move on I am fine, as well as most other people. This is a message board. Many things are miswrote or misunderstood. Being a Christian personally and realizing these facts about message boards, I am glad that everyone seemed to be ok. We're all friends as said before, if we should be debating with anyone nicely, it should be good old George Lucas. GL, if you ever read this, none of us hate you, we just want to see those old rough cuts of yours.

ok. just a future thing for people. people dont like to be put down after every post. yeah im the baby on the forum. just dont rub it in. i have opinions too and its ok that theyre not ones you agree with. that doesnt make me any stupider or smarter than you. we would be all so boring if we were all the same. one persons interest is anothers pet peeve. Yet, they are entitled to their opinions. the politics also are causing problems. cant you understand that not everybody is anti-republican...notice how many people actually are republican?!?!?! yeah, a star wars fan just might be one too. im not alone. lets be more careful of how we sound. that goes for me too.

Wow, and we thought it got bad on this forum. For kicks, I just went and joined the forum at Dixie Chicks Chat and read some of the arguments between fans about Natalie Maines comments in London about President Bush. Some of them are vicious (not just against her, but her supporters are wicked as well). Ouch. Motti and NileQT are pussycats by comparison.
