Eddie asked the question to someone in the  other thread, so.... do we see ourselves as others see us? I doubt it somehow. Laughing

We all have opinions of others on forums, some peoples opinions about us  seems to be set in stone even before they actually read what we have to say ... others are more open minded and actually listen to what our views are, responding to them and not some preconceived notion of what they think we mean....….either way, we all have our favourite posters (yes we do)

So what is your opinion, which may differ greatly from others, about the varied and interesting posters on this forum?

I will start off with Tommy, even though we dont often enter the same threads I still read what he has to say because he very often offers an alternative viewpoint to the majority.
He will usually respond to others in a debate (which is definitely a plus point( rather than ignoring difficult questions put to him.
I also like the way he sticks to his guns if he has a point to make....he isnt Mr Popularity, he doesnt come here to be liked, he comes here to have his say and if you dont like that.....that's not his problem. Laughing

I like Tommy for the very same reasons you just outlined.
And he never gets abusive either, sarcastic perhaps, but never abusive.

I agree, he's always polite and not rude, same as Nicko.

I like Vintages post, always good to read.

Some posters I think of as the quiet ones, but they always make good points, Vintage and Nicko are quiet posters imo, and they never look for arguments either.

Gelico and Eddie bring fun to the forum, quick, sharp and witty. I usually agree with most of what they say.....I think they would be in real life exactly as they are on the forum.

Quill is more complicated, undoubtedly clever, so much so I often have to read his posts twice, and even then I dont always understand what he is saying.....but he has a sweet side to him, and he can be chatty too, which is nice.

You dont post much, but when you do you usually say in a few words what others might say in a few paragraphs.....short and sweet, and having posted with you on various forums for years, I can say with truth you are loyal and honest always. x

Rags is very logical, straight talking and doesnt suffer fools.

Didge....either really good forum company or would argue night is day and blue is black....for days.
He can be really generous with his compliments or really free with his insults, not sure if it depends on his mood or whether he simply likes to argue......but he does post some really thoughtful youtubes.

I think the majority of posters are dishonest

Some are honest in thier beliefs, (notic I say beliefs) like Gelico, Eddie, Nems, Tommy, Nicko, Lord Foul as they say it as it is

Others try poorly to be neutral, when in reality they are more concerned over offending someone and more so what others think of them

That means they have been infected by the PC Virus

I have rarely cared what people think of me on here (yes I get very passionate over what I beleive. Not what people think of me) and why I have not reached out to any of you in the real world. I already have friends and this is a place to let off steam.

As the reality is, most here are a buffer to offload with and debate. In the real world I am very different and why I keep a distance on here. As I want this to be a place that I can test many limits

Its nothing personal with anyone

Its why the person I respect the most is Lord Foul

He has no side or buddies or favorites

He sees things how they are to him and is not afraid to take anyone to task. Even those I mentioned are at times hessitant. Rags comes close but cannot admit when wrong. Where as Lord Foul can.

Not one poster is even comparable to Lord Foul

I would make an exception though on wanting to meet someone here and that would be Lord Foul and (Fred)Edmund. As they would be so much more interesting to meet

Yes he does

He rarely refers to my correct user name and casts me as dodge or twat ( though I am not bothered)

You must be blind or stupid here Eddie and he does it to goad, but in both cases he does to insult

So he constantly insults, as why does he not call me didge and often call me dodge?

Is that a compliment to you?

I like Tommy, but spare the bullshit love. He happens to be the most hateful person towards homosexuals. Of which Eilzil is and refers to Homosexuals as abnormal and unnatural

Do you think that is not insulting and hateful towards Eilzel?

Didge I like the fact you see things so different to others, but unto yourself are true.

Even though you are like a dog with a bone and will make a debate out of anything. I like you for that. Smile

Exclamation

I have to agree with Didge here...

Tommy has often insulted others on NF --  Quill, veya, Eilzel, me, Andy (and the likes of sassy and Sexy Mama in the past..) --  as well as regular abuse against Didge himself..

Most people won't complain simply because they're either abusing him back, or laughing along with Tommy's jibes.

Why dont you think posters are honest?
Personally I believe most are, I think the word liar is flung around a lot on forums when someone disagrees with what someone else says...it's just a lazy insult, just like 'racist' is.

Hmmmm….maybe some people remain neutral because they dont come onto forums to spend time arguing.

There are a few "yes" posters knocking about various forums, and a few who will agree with someone just to rile the poster they dont like, but apart from them, I dont think many posters are dishonest in the way they post.

Oh and by the way Syl.

An argument can be defined as an opinion that is supported with evidence. Debates are based upon arguments. A formal debate usually takes place in a formal setting with a team representing each side of the argument. Specific guidelines are followed, and the debate is usually judged.

Hence most people are here to argue, including you

Post by Vintage on Sat Sep 01, 2018 5:14 pm

This is my problem as well, I don't feel right about picking out posters for good or not, I don't want to forget anyone either so I'll just say that I find most on here are pretty much honest in their opinions and thoughtful about their replies not to mention quite diplomatic, There are those who are very humorous and others that really take things far too seriously on times. There are times when I don't understand a reply at all, obviously that could be me. Now and again we get what I call the carousel effect where one or two posters just can't seem to move on from a point, while I admire tenacity I think it can go too far with pages of virtually the same statements made or questions asked (without answer). Then sometimes we get into the obsessive. That's life on a forum, it wouldn't be much use if we all came here to agree on everything.

Vintage and Mags, dont pick out posters if you feel uncomfortable with it...it's not compulsory to post in the thread. Cool

Threads like this are not for everyone, a bit like the ones "who does a poster remind you of"....not everyone wants to play. Laughing

Personally I dont care, I know for eg I'm not bossy or untruthful ...if someone saw me like that I would be too interested to know why rather than be insulted or hurt, but I appreciate not everyone has a thick skin.,,,,it's just peoples opinions after all.

Because you actually care if I do believe or not whether you are honest

I actually said 85% which is a fare estimate for everyone on honesty

So you claim you are always honest

I laughed to myself when I read Mags and Vintages posts, because in a way this could be like when someone asks their partner what they dont like about them....it usually ends up in a row. lol!
Difference being...this is a forum and it is meant to be a fun thread.


Because you actually care if I do believe or not whether you are honest

I actually said 85% which is a fare estimate for everyone on honesty

So you claim you are always honest

Have you told children there is a real santa claus?

You actually said you believed most posters were dishonest....which I think I was more interested in.

Generally if people are dishonest themselves they view everyone else as being liars, if they are honest themselves they tend to believe other people are being honest.

Now I dont think you are a dishonest poster, thats why I was interested in why you come to the conclusion you did.

I dont think telling kids Santa or the tooth fairy exists is dishonest in the way we are talking about.....you are nit picking now. tongue

Here's to all the posters, whether you like me or not, because of course that's what forums are about, your opinions.

+1  I am uncomfortable about that as well.

As for tommy, he is a bigot and a racist, but he is at least up front about it.  He doesn't argue by insult or derision.

Nuff said...

Dont play then Quill. Laughing

It would have been a nice thread to tell other people their good points, no one has to concentrate on the bad.

Anyway....I didn't mention Fred, I think he is always kind, witty and good humoured, but he wont take flak off anyone....good for him.
Ben is incredibly patient ( he must be to run a forum) apart from his posting style he makes Eddie happy, so I like him for that as well. Laughing

Horatio is a girl after my own heart, I love the way she puts people in their place, but she does it with humour, and she makes some great threads up about arty things sometimes to.

Misdirection from my point and again people are dishonest when debating. When they do fear upsetting people. That is the 15% catagory

Its emphatically dishonest to tell a child something they will come to learn is untrue

Hence nobody is perfect and they always at some point lie

The difference here is where its on a lie based on an intention not to offend. The same with the tooth fairy and santa claus lie

Hence this rolls over into adulthood with this forum. Posters apply the same dumb logic, as they do to children when telling a  lie that is made to prevent hurt. Hence people at times are very dishonest

Are you confusing tact or kindness with dishonesty here?

Not imo….it's keeping childhood alive and telling kids there is a Santa and a tooth fairy is just making magic for young minds. You can call that dishonest if you like, I dont agree.

As for this attitude rolling over into adulthood and onto forums so as not to hurt peoples feelings, I dont see that at all......but there is a way of debating or arguing without being horrible to people and name calling.....and if thats the way some people post, thats not being dumb, it's being civil.

Is that why after no insult given you call me dodge constantly?

Poor reply mate and you are as bad as the rest of us and even more when you insult homosexuals as being abnormal

Here is the difference between us

I say things based on passion and you saay things on hate

Go figure

No that is just bullshit as one day they will know you lied

You should be honest and tell them that santa is nothing more than an icon for Christmas

The magic is based on a lie, of which they will find out about and yet people sadly buy into this lie based on a view not to offend

Its the worst dishonesty, because people know they are telling a lie and in order to attempt to make children be happy

So if people stopped telling this lie and actually focused on Santa just being an icon for Christmas. Would then any child ever end up being upset when they learnt the truth that you lied about?

You then say there is a way of debating and yet Tommy classes homosexuals as abnormal and unnatural

How in anyway is that nice?

Talk about being conditioned

We were talking about the way a poster debates in regard to other posters, and I stand by what I said.

Tommys (or anyone elses) views on Homosexuals or any other subject is a different matter.
We can vehemently disagree with what someone elses opinion is, but thats not what we were talking about here.

I dont think most kids are upset when they find out Santa doesnt exist, you time it so they are old enough to accept he is a myth...and tbh, the presents are their priority anyway. We used to tell our son and grandsons that if they sang a tune the fairy tree may drop pennies down for them....I actually think they cottoned on it was us long before we told them …..kids can be cleverer than we are sometimes.Razz

Eilzel is homosexual

So its very the same matter

I back tommy to have free speech, but what i dont back is idiot defends the contexts of his speech and claim he is nice

Every post he calls me dodge and not didge. This is based on him being a child more than anything but the point stands. So to claim Tommy posts without abuse is bullshit. You simple except and tolerate the abuse he does give

Now i do not claim to be any saint, but the bullshit you and Eddie give here is farcical to say the least

He has posted the most hateful things towards homosexuals and Eilzel is homsexual. I many times point out about poor beliefs. One of these is Islam. What would your reaction be if I claimed Muslims were abnormal and unnatural?

Seriously, when Sexy is a poster here?

Beliefs are open season to be ridiculed and criticised, but to demean people for who they are is hateful. Which is what Tommy does

So spare me the bullshit

Really?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Is that what parents do also with religion that they believe in?

It does not matter how badly you dress this up, its still based on a lie and if that lie was never started. No child would ever be upset. That is a fact. Its why its appalling how children are brought up around the world based on a diet of lies.

So you admit to lying to your kids

Hence people lie 15% of the time

And this goes back to my point that poeople here will lie in order to not offend

You just proved me right on this, as you do the same with children. Which in reality, you must treat posters as if they are children here? Correct?

You often call me Sly when you have it on you....so its a bit hypocritical to moan about anyone else deliberately misspelling your name.  Laughing

I know Eilzel is homosexual....if Tommy, for whatever reason doesnt like homosexuality thats his opinion....you either want free speech or you dont. People are allowed to voice their opinions on a relatively free speech forum, and Im sure Eilzel would agree with that.
If Tommy was horrible to Eilzel because of his homosexuality  thats a different matter obviously.
