The “Frink’s OT Twitter Thread” is rather sucktacular.
seems to indicate to me that you don’t allow for any commentary that might dampen anyone’s spirit. Look, there is a culture here as much as there is in real life. In a way, interaction in this culture requires some adherence to cultural norms. When someone violates those norms, it is okay to point it out. We don’t have to bend over backwards to make sure we don’t hurt someone’s feelings. On the other hand, we don’t have to be insulting. Sometimes a little humor and a little correction can help someone get in line. But you are hellbent on changing the culture to fit your concept, often directly or indirectly attacking Frink. Even if you do so generally, it is obvious that you are referring primarily to him.
He and I agree on little politically, religiously, or in other areas. You and I have more in common than he and I. But I get along well with him because I think in general he is a nice guy who makes silly jokes that aren’t usually intended to offend. Your perception of him as some horrible bully is inaccurate in my mind. Maybe he should tone it down at times so as not to inadvertently hurt some sensitive soul like Spuffure, but I don’t for a moment believe he would truly intend to cause him emotional pain.
I can tell you in all honesty, though, that Off Topic was far more enjoyable before you came in here like Wyatt Earp, acting like it was up to you to clean up this town. I honestly believe you are a nice guy with the best of intentions, but you take everything so personally, are inflexible in your beliefs, and unwilling to concede that you might be wrong about some things. You are obsessive about particular topics, and anyone who challenges your views is offensive to you and you dismiss them as another bully. I have seen many people attempt to engage with you productively, but you irrationally shut them down. And at the end of the day, you still act as if you are being wronged, always trying to frame yourself as the noble one, but to any outsider, you are seen as the primary antagonizer.
Sometimes, it’s just best if you keep your thoughts to yourself, instead of injecting your overly opinionated thoughts into the discussion. Often, I feel the need to reply to something I disagree with. Then I think about it and decide against it. You seem to be unable to ever do this.
