I think many on here have some, if not varying degrees of all of those flaws you posted there d_e, yourself included.
If you’re going to try and use this thread to try and goad Frink - or carry on/escalate from the ‘[fill in the blank] Just Died!’ thread - then think on mate.
Of course we all have such flaws. But there is no doubt that Frink’s character is unique to this forum, usually in a pleasant sense, periodically to an aggravating sense.
However, I am not trying to goad or escalate anything. I was trying to follow mrebo’s advice from that thread:
TV’s Frink said:
To be honest, I genuinely feel you’re not as enjoyable or nice as you used to be. Or maybe I’m just nicer than I used to be, leading me to sit on my high horse. 😛
I think you and Warb are just suffering faulty memory, but ok.
Im getting flashbacks of the Luke Skywalker debate. I think Frink is as delightful as ever 🐣
I think we should give the dead the respect they deserve in this thread and not get bogged down in petty internecine fights (definition provided for Dom’s benefit).
I don’t see how I am goading him. I was not rude or disrespectful. I am trying to converse in a more appropriate thread about what I feel is a problem. I am handling it in a very adult-like fashion, and frankly, I don’t need a moderator to tell me how to talk with another adult unless things get out of hand. So far, I don’t believe we’re even close to that point.
What’s more, you swooped in on my comment in the ‘[fill in the blank] Just Died!’ thread because a lack of careful phrasing made it look like a portion of my comment was a broad generalization, even though the latter part of the comment should have clarified. You quickly corrected me and stated that I shouldn’t generalize (to which I agreed) and presumably accepted my point that liberals and atheists should be respectful of religious/conservative individuals who have died. Literally, you castigated me for not using the word ‘many’ in one of two appropriate places. Meanwhile, Frink’s disrespectful comments, both before and after that, received no moderation, and they were clearly far more offensive.
Following all this, I come to this thread to carry on what I hope will be a productive conversation and where Frink might actually acknowledge that he has been ruder lately, and whom do you call out? Me. Never mind the goading that Frink gives chyron8472 routinely. Never mind the harassment that he leveled against Warbler in the NFL thread leading up to the Super Bowl, refusing for pages to acknowledge that he should back down. Never mind the instances where he decides to pick on yhwx and where it clearly is hurting his feelings. Never mind his lack of remorse on most of these occasions. No, call out darth_ender, who 95% of the time tries to be the peace maker. I really appreciate that.
I didn’t say you were goading him - I said ‘If you’re going to try and use this thread to try and goad Frink…’, yes?
As for you ‘…don’t need a moderator to tell me how to talk with another adult unless things get out of hand’ - well… given your posts to/re Frink in the ‘Just Died’ thread, coupled with your loaded post in here - I will step in, and try to diffuse something from continuing or escalating further. (Edit - It’s seemingly gone well in this thread since I’ve been out for a couple of hours and not stepped in, hasn’t it? insert sarcasm winky here)
As for Frink’s comments in the ‘[fill in the blank] Just Died!’ thread - if you have an issue with them then let a mod know via PM. I took issue with your comments about ‘non-religious peeps and liberals’ as ‘they seem to celebrate the death of a prominent Christian figure’ - which was not the case at all, was it? Hence I pulled you up on it.
‘the harassment that he leveled against Warbler in the NFL thread leading up to the Super Bowl’…? you mean the posting of a pic of an ex-player every time Warbler posted ‘Go Eagles’? Or is there something else? Did Frink not apologise and stop?
‘Never mind the goading that Frink gives chyron8472 routinely’ - that seems to be two-way thing, no? And since chyron’s return to the site it seems that chyron is giving Frink barrels over Frink’s posts.
‘Never mind the instances where he decides to pick on yhwx and where it clearly is hurting his feelings’ - I am not aware of this. yhwx - please let a mod know if you have any issues with what d_e is alluding to.
If anyone here has an issue with posts made by certain members they can let a mod know - as they have always been able to do. Or maybe you don’t want a mod trying to diffuse a situation with you & Frink (you having a pop at him) - but do want mods to get involved when Frink has a pop (according to you) at others? It certainly seems that way…
Anyway, knock the holier-than-thou attitude on the head.
