Who is Ignoring You, and Who are You Ignoring? (was: Who is Ignoring You? (was: Hello all, I'm back!)) — Page 60

Alright. I understand why dirty talk offends some. I get it. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but I get it. I get that some people's senses of humor aren't as liberal as my own. I get it. 

But I don't get why I should be off-handedly talked down to for defending a joke that I thought was funny. I will not apologize for thinking the joke was funny and supporting my reasons why.

You guys talk about respect as if it's something that only you understand. Like if I or someone else indulges in an occasional obscenity we don't know the meaning of respect. I don't get why you guys can't respect my sense of humor. You don't like vulgarities. I understand that. I'm not going to say that you need to get over yourself. So why should you say that we should get over ourselves? To us, they're just words. There's no sincerity to them. They are jokes. They give us a laugh. They make us feel better. 

I am sorry for the rant but I am not sorry for my beliefs. Hope you can understand that.

How many times must I and others say that our problem wasn't the posting of dirty stuff, but where it was posted??

WHY ISN'T ANYBODY THINKING OF THE CHILDREN!!!!!????

Because the children are all grown up and serving time for public indecency.

You know, I get irritated every time I read these stupid jokes, but the nature of HotRod's joke (the disrespect towards his wife in particular) and the timing of it, just a few posts after my heartfelt post about my children and the very important recent event in my life (the birth of my daughter) just was too much.

I'll be honest with you, I didn't even read your OP...I just thought I'd share my good news...

Please don't bang on and on about how I disrespected my wife, it was a bloody joke. Not everyone is so serious. Christ, I'm defiantly not. Does that make me a bad partner? No. A bad dad? No

I've been on and off this forum for 10 years now...bloody hell....And I've seen a lot of dicks come and go. Maybe I'm turning into one of them, who knows, who cares!! This isn't real life, I don't go up to people in the real world and tell them what I'd like to do to my missus...well, maybe sometimes....But if I do its in a way that comes across as harmless banter...But no one starts crying and telling me how much it disgusts them or how it's put them off eating chocolate cake (hahahahaha)

Just chill out for Gods sake....

 ^This. While I'm willing to entertain the idea that he shouldn't have posted in the "safety-scissors" forum, I can't comprehend the belittling of his good news in the good news thread. (I can think of some dirtier "Good News" quotes...) It's fair game, one of the very first sections of the bitching thread was about how someone's grandfather was about to die, he died, everyone consoled him, and moved on to the next bitching. What's the period of back-slapping necessary before other people can post their OWN good news?

I'm the devil and then some!

So everyone knows, a crude joke will always bother me.  Always.  But I understand I can't do much about it.  What bugged me was the where and the when more than the what, really.  But what can I do about it?  Well, I would kindly ask that those inclined to post stuff like that at least please be a little more considerate about where they post it.  But I'm over it for the most part.  For what little it matters to anyone, I will unignore HotRod and just choose to do what I usually do when I come across dirty posts: skip it when I realize what's being said.

That said, I would be, um, grateful if I can think about folks reading the page where I wrote about my family and not worry about them reading that same joke.  I guess what I'm saying is that it'd be nice to edit out those jokes.  I doubt it will happen, but here's hoping.

please tell me how my post "Hotrod, that was way too much information." can be called belittling.

not sure.  maybe you have a point here in that it wasn't handled the same in Ender's good news thread as it was in the b****ing thread.   Of course, the thread was for b****ing, so it is of no surprise that people would b**** there.  Maybe having a swear word in the title makes all the difference, I don't know.   Maybe Ender should have made it clear in his original post in his good news thread that he didn't want dirty stuff there.  Would that have made a difference?  Don't know.  DrCrow made it clear he didn't want dirty stuff in his good news thread and hotrod still posted something dirty.   As I said, maybe you do have a point here.

 I would not say that just because one indulges in an occasional obscenity, means one doesn't know the meaning of respect.   But what does it say about a person's understanding of respect, if that person posts dirty stuff in a thread where the title and first post makes clear dirty stuff is not wanted there?  Also what does it say about a person's understanding of respect if they defend that sort of behavior? DominicCobb, I wish to make clear that I am not say you have been or are know defending hotrod's behavior.  I am not sure if you defended or are defending hotrod's actions in DrCrow's good news thread or not.   I am not sure what you think of hotrod's behavior in that thread.

 Yes exactly.  I was the one movie out of hotrods way so he could do whatever he wanted.  I haven't complained about his post in my thread because I have him on ignore and no one quoted him so so far I have not had to read his post so I have no idea what he said.

my purpose in creating that thread was to stop conflict not cause it.  I saw Ender was getting upset but Hotrod in that thread as well so I started a new thread instead of asking Hotrod to change his posts.

People keep saying I was childish or making a personal attack on Hotro by doing this but I don't understand how I was doing that.  If in public someone came up to me and started saying the things Hotrod was saying about his wife in person I would walk away because really when someone starts cursing out his wife in public over their sex life and giving me every detail of it in a public space I just have the urge to slap that person and it makes me feel a little ill but I was always told doing that sort of thing was wrong and I don't expect to be able to control what he posts.  So instead of trying to control him I made a thread where people like Ender and myself could avoid him and he could say whatever he wanted everywhere else.  I thought I was doing the adult thing and it would end the conflict because there once there was a clean good news thread no one would have any grounds to complain about Hotrod's posts any more,but I guess I was wrong.

Sorry I seem to have wrecked the boards by trying to do what I thought was the adult thing and there doesn't seem to be any end to this conflict.

I guess I was really being childish I don't know because alot of people seem to be offended that I didn't like Hotrod's post.

So I am leaving it up to you if you think I have stepped out of line with my response to Hotrod and it is causing too much conflict on these boards please PM me or post here. I really think this has gone on too long and is wrecking a nice forum where people seem to get along more or less pretty well and I don't want to be the cause of that.  So if the majority vote that I stepped out of line by not liking Hotrod's posts and trying to avoid them I will delete my account at the end of the week.

Even on meds I some times have trouble telling if I have stepped out of line so I need your feedback on this.

I really don't want this to continue to tear this forum apart so let's either stop talking about it or have me as the guilty party leave the forum but one of those two things needs to happen.

That seems to be the only adult way left to deal with this problem if you ask me.

I don't think you steped out of line in creating that good news thread.   Don't worry about wrecking the forum.   You have not done that.  The forum is not wrecked, nor is it anywhere near close to being so.   I have been on this forum for over ten years and there have been much worse fights than this.   You don't need to leave the forum.  Don't worry so much about it.

 Okay thanks.

I guess I am just not used to this place,it seemed so friendly up until the point I complained about that post and started my own thread.

I guess maybe I did provoke Hotrod by creating it in response to his post so maybe I was being a bit of a bully since I am not a mod and I guess he saw it as my attacking him but that was not my intent.

Hotrod if you took it that way I am sorry,I didn't mean to attack you I was just trying to give myself an Ender a place to talk so that Ender wouldn't feel the need to attack you in the good news thread any more.

I am sorry for being childish and attacking Hotrod,I will take him off of my ignore list and read his posts from now on if that's what it takes to end this but please let's all put this conflict behind us.

I am sure Hotrod is a good person I should have had a thicker skin,I am sorry I attacked you Hotrod,I was completely wrong to complain about your post or start a thread that could be seen as an attack on you. 

I was completely in the wrong.

Now everyone let's just move on and drop this issue,please I didn't mean for it to blow up like this.

There I have removed Hotrod from my Ignore list and I am admitting that I was 100% wrong and Hotrod had every right to defend himself in my thread.

I am also asking the mods to delete that thread and I will admit I was being a baby by not laughing at Hotrod's post.  I should not have had a problem with it because I am supposed to be an adult. I am sorry I attack a fellow user without cause.

Please mods delete my thread and let's move on.

Hotrod again I can not say how sorry I am,I can see how you felt bullied and I am sorry I put you through that.  I had no right to have problem with your post and I didn't have any right to start a thread that could be seem as an attack on you or to try and tell you what to post in it. I was being a bully and was 100% in the wrong plain and simple and I hope you can forgive me and we can move on from here.

Stop being a baby. You are who you are and HotRod is who he is. No need to be apologizing for anything really. Let's all go back to ignoring everyone.
