I still think ABC deserves the banhammer.  But Warbler's reaction is no better and I can see why he previously had a ban himself.

Jesus... walkingdork is right.  I'm just never going to bother with a thread that ABC, Warb, or possibly anybody not named TV's Frink posts in.

So...if I post in every thread, you'll read them all? Or if anyone but me posts in a thread, you won't read it?

I'm confused...and a bit hungry.

I don't really blame Warbler. I'm not sure if you saw the edits to the first post, constantly trying more ways to antagonize Warbler. I thought Frink had it perfectly right in his first post in this thread (when the title was pointlessly and stupidly aimed at Warbler): "Terrible thread idea and you know it, ABC."

I thought the thread would just die.

And I agree Warbler just needs to ignore this stuff. On the other hand, he doesn't want people constantly mocking him. It's just really uncalled for. Maybe if he ignored such people, they would stop mocking him - and that just shows how immature and abusive such people are being, they do it in order to upset him.

And I agree with everything CP3S has said here. You do stir the pot, walkingdork. Harassment of another member deserves no defense.

Obviously the powers that be decide when a ban is merited. I feel a ban is a good idea when a member drags down us down into this and breeds hostility. This is markedly different from poking fun. Most of us recognize the difference.

If a lion tamer makes a mistake and gets bitten, a huge part of the crowd will rush and see the massacre screaming in horror, thus pushing the beast to unleash his bestial nature to the last. Fortunately I'm not a lion and wouldn't reply as some may have expected. Think about it... 

This is the paradox of human nature: you can bring it down, or you can bring it up.

 

... Having unfortunately taken the former path myself these last days with Warbler, I felt deeply wrong and reckoned I needed to take a look at myself face to face. I've done it for myself first - because what I'd do here could repeat in real life - , and it wasn't meant for sharing my feelings here in the first place. But if it can make Warbler as well as a few other feel better and get rid of that I finally took my time to redact a definitive message that will be the last (OP).

 

Goodbye gentlemen.

You know I take a good note when things are clearly adressed and formulated, not insulting.

No one suggested Walkingdork "started a fire". He said he is tired of "putting out fires" and I pointed out that he has done nothing to try to put any fires out.

I wasn't suggesting he should be either. They aren't his fires to put out. Earlier on I did make the suggestion that he shouldn't poke his head into ancient history he doesn't understand by suggesting someone unignore someone they have obviously put on ignore for reasons perfectly valid to themselves, and which may even be a sore spot for them, as it was for Warb. What I said there was filled with my agitation that all this crap that had been dormant for a good while was being needlessly dug back up. I never thought or suggested he should have scoured through the archives to read every bit of history between each and every current member of the forum.

I hold nothing against Walkingdork, nor have I had any problem with him. I am quite fond of him, I have a lot of respect for him, and as expressed a few posts ago, I really do hope this whole mess doesn't drive him out of Off Topic (and I was really glad to hear him say that it wouldn't).

CP3S, you know Warbler personally more than anyone on these boards, so in order to "protect" him like it seems you're willing to do it, maybe you should shot a pm if you think someone is going too far rather than insulting said people in order to refresh their mind, or let them know when they are new.

ABC, I hate to say it, but long ago you sunk from member status in my mind to that of a troll. I wasn't insulting you to "refresh your mind", I was just providing you with the amount of respect that I feel you have earned from me over the years. If you are going to act like shit, don't be surprised when people treat you like shit.

Admitting that probably isn't going to make me any more popular with the general off topic population, but that doesn't really bother me. I feel fine being completely honest about it and not hiding behind any bullshit.

If you go back and look, you'll notice that I treated you with a fair deal of respect in threads where you were making real discussion, and treated you a great deal harsher in threads that you were just bullshitting random stuff in for attention. You've been around as XYZ for a little while now, from first seeing that user name I assumed it was you, but you were acting respectful, so I treated you with respect. It wasn't until after I pointed you out to the others and you started acting like your old self again and posting trollish posts in every other topic that I started being a dick to you.

 I'll be out from now, having finished the private business I was here for.

ABC's private business: Stir up trouble, fuck up the forum. Brilliant. Well, I am glad that is over with. Until next time, my friend.

Come back anytime.

Ok.  Well, I've calmed down alot.   I am sorry about my outburst.  I apologize to everyone, especially to Walkingdork.   I originally misunderstood his post and took to be it much worse than it was. I've apologized to him in private.   I am embarrassed that I let abc get under my skin like that.   If he ever does come back,  I shall try my best to just ignore him.

I'm sorry you feel this way, bkev.   While I agree that my reaction was wrong, I do not see how it was as bad as what abc was doing to me.   In any case,   it is my hope that you change your mind on refusing to post in threads with me in it.  

It was never my desire to chase to Walkingdork, bkev, or anyone else out of the forum or out of any threads(with exception of abc).   That's the last thing I wanted.  All I really wanted was to be left alone by abc.  

anyways, I'm back.

How?

Maybe I am mistaken.

It is just that Warbler leaves after an old issue that involved you and ABC is brought back up and mulled over, ABC reflects on things and apologizes before leaving the forum himself, and Warbler decides to come back. Warbler's post apologizing, trying to make things right, and saying he is back is the first post in this thread in days, all conflict is over, everything is good. Your response? "Die thread die".

It seems like the reasons for wanting this thread dead are all resolved and it is ready to start sinking on its own, why even bring it up or make a statement like that? And it is great news that Warbler is back. So that response of yours was more than a little puzzling.

Maybe I read too much into it, if so, sorry.
