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.
^This. While I'm willing to entertain the idea that he shouldn't have posted in the "safety-scissors" forum,
and that is basically what I am saying.
I can't comprehend the belittling of his good news in the good news thread. (I can think of some dirtier "Good News" quotes...)
please tell me how my post "Hotrod, that was way too much information." can be called belittling.
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?
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.
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.
