If you truly knew the people you were talking about, you’d see it another way. Taking random posts out of context doesn’t make your version of events any truer. I agree the bickering is pointless. The incident with Fated-Dualist was to counter his own accusations about a member who can no longer defend himself here.
I find it odd you, a new member who joined in 2020, are digging up two year old posts from another forum while Fated-Dualist accused them of stalking. Seems odd. Not to mention the linked post to Frink clearly shows he doesn’t tolerate any of the things that Fated-Dualist linked to him. This whole thing is just sad.
As for the whole ‘us’ vs. ‘the enemy’, I can’t help but recall when I received an interrogative PM from oojason when I made an innocent post about looking at the old politics thread, as so much time has passed since then and there are posts there that date back to the George W. Bush administration, demanding if I was in cahoots with Warbler, someone I don’t even talk to. It was weird.
A few people have been in contact claiming you’ve been a bit of troublemaker on here of late; attacking other members, and writing bizarre stuff about me… I told them no, they must be mistaken - as Handman is a good lad, responsible poster, and that I found you to be thoughtful and considerate in my previous experiences with your good self.
And yet here we are, and having read your recent posts on here… it is me who is very much mistaken.
Yep… a cocktail of accusations, insults, and angry attacks with it. Not with just one, or two, but three members on here - and a bit of an unfounded dig at Dek too.
You seem to have selectively ignored the facts / content of posts are they are - and your own role in this sorry mess - as pointed out by Dek & Fated… and continued on regardless, doubling down as it were.
It is indeed time to put a stop to this ongoing incendiary & one-eyed shite still being peddled by some on here - which looks to retcon or open up old scars on what has actually occurred on here in the past - and that some people still just can’t let go. Why you attempted to continue this on in yet another thread - because the previous thread has been locked - is lost on me.
Handman, have a couple of weeks off from here to cool off - and also as a reminder it is not acceptable to act in the manner you have done on this site of late. When you return - should you wish to return - I hope you’ll have I hope you’ll not continue this shitstirring and attacking of other members here; people who engage in this course of action don’t last long on here, as you are aware.
If the mods want to overturn my temp-ban on you, they will (it is nice I still have mod actions - and although I don’t know why… cool). Nobody should have to put up with certain members’ ongoing and inflammatory rubbish about this subject on here anymore (including the somewhat one-eyed version of events or ‘whataboutism’ levelled at others). Nor should anyone think is acceptable to attack on fellow members on here as you have.
For anyone else interested in continuing on with the above topics… enough really is enough. Move on, do something positive with your lives, or go get laid and have a beer. If you don’t want to be civil on here, and instead want to snipe, attack or insult others, or continue years old bullshit, then go find a place which lets you do just that - this site isn’t it.
Re our PM conversation to which you refer to, Handman - let’s have a look at it…
^ ‘interrogative PM’, ‘demanding if I was in cahoots with Warbler’, ‘it was weird’…? Really?
Your claims are another example of a bizarre interpretation of events not based in reality…
Though overall a nice ‘whataboutism’ - and further attempt at continuing to shit-stir on here.
The above PM conversation as being some part of ‘us’ vs. ‘the enemy’…? No, it was a simple question. A simple answer too, and you had no problem with it. Like this conversation in your post about the subject in one of Warbler’s handful of ‘requests to bring the politics thread back’ threads (& PMs to mods about it), here. I think it was the the phrasing, terminology, or timing (or that Warb was going through a tough time - I can’t quite remember) of your request had me thinking Warbler may have asked you to ask us on his behalf etc - or you were trying to cheer him up or similar… so I just asked you about it, and you replied. That was all - nothing doing then, and nothing doing since.
I’m going back to my leaving the site - a peaceful life so far in the main, until now.
(Just an update - the person who made the malicious phonecalls has since sincerely apologised, and promised never to do contact me again. So that particular mess is over and done with now - thankfully).
However, if I’m told there are more similar bullshit claims, inflammatory posts, insults, attacks, and accusations on the whole ‘cry-arsing about 3 members being banned in 2018’ (who all got were aware of what they were doing - and asking for)… being posted on here I’ll come back and ban them too (if the mod privileges are still withstanding!).
To Fated, Gonk, and a few others who have helped in helping out around here of late… thank you so much. I am deeply sorry for all this - I asked you to help out around the OT, make it home, and contribute etc and got you involved with this place (for some, once again), and fully respect your decision to leave here - something which I obviously understand.
Your positive contributions here - among many others’ - will hopefully continue as a good source of information, insight, of use, or interest to members on here for a long time to come. And also for just helping out - like so many others have done, currently do, and will in the future.
PS. Also many thanks for the kind messages in this thread (and PMs & emails etc), everyone - they are most appreciated, thank you. ✊"
