First topic message reminder :

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?

But I don’t have that belief anymore and I’m starting to realise that certain posters are just egotistically stupid.


OK....my advice would be to take a step back and let the other mods do a bit of work for a change.....you must have a mod room where you can talk in private, set out some firmer rules as to what is acceptable and that would apply to everyone.

Frustration?

If that is the case, I can hardly blame her for being so


You know what the definition of insanity is?
Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  

That’s why I’m frustrated. That’s why I’m outgrowing this place.


And really, the forum is going to shit. Veya’s comment really did something to me.
And really, it’s symbolic of everything that’s wrong on here.

Albert Einstein and he was right. You are also right, that people are continually making the same mistakes over and over again. Sadly some think the way to combat racism, is to be racist. Its identity politics idiocy. That is simple absurd and shows what is wrong with how people are driven by hate and prejudice. To the point that people that are adherants of identity polictis are bringing fourth the same bigoted prejudiced views from before

So I understand why you are frustrated and I am going to do something here to help

I am no longer going to insult people and show that people can move past being spiteful and vindictive

If I can do this, when most of the time its my passions that run away with me. Then nobody can then use me as an exucse to then be bigoted and prejudiced

You have my permission and the rest of the Mod team to immediatelly basement me if I fall foul of this by calling a poster a mean name. I want them to do this, though, I will prove they never have to. I will still swear of course, but if I can show I can debate without prejudice and mean words. Then nobody has any justification to do so themselves

I do not want to see you leave and if it means me correcting myself and doing what is needed to ensure this forum becomes a good place for people to intereact. Then I am willing to do that.

I hope to then lead by example, that then others may follower



I’m not asking anyone to change.
Thank you for your help though, I appreciate it.

But I am going to change, because I will feel responsible in part if you do leave

You know how stubborn I can be, and I would hate it if you left here, as to me, you are like family. Ben is to. He has married into a family that has been a running long saga, that I have been privy to enjoy over the years. So if I have to modify my behaviour, then I will. As at the end of the day civility costs nothing.

So you know how stubborn I can be and at times with a view to be right. Well on this occasion, I am going to prove myself right and show you that I can debate without any nastiness towards any poster

If I can do this, then so can everyone else

I put this challenge to everyone here

Hahaha...short and sweet. Razz

I think Eddie is just pissed off with events at the minute, and something she may take in her stride normally has had a bigger effect on her than usual.

I can say this, if Eddie did leave the heart of this forum would be gone for me.
She was the first person I got to know when I joined, and imo she is the glue that holds this place together.
Others may disagree....but thats my perspective on it.

Well there you go, the heart would be gone

So why not follow my stance here?

What is so difficult in doing that?

You have no idea of my resolve on things syl, as in reality you do not understand Eddie and I see her hardening every day with dispair at this place, hence my view to change.

I mean people have already written me off and it just hardens my resolve to prove you all wrong

Are you with me Syl on this?

I guess I stand alone in doing this, as again, I do understand people better than most. Its why I do have countless people come to me with their fears and how I help them overcome them. The majority of them being women. I could explain why, but there is little point in doing so, people already have a preconcieved idea and view of people and that is where I am different./

I am willing to do something here and not one person wants to join me and stand up and be counted on this, because to me. Eddie is the very heart and soul of this place. So I am not going to stand by idle and see her feel that she has to leave, when I can do something about that. You can have as many opinions of you like of me. Use me as a beating stick, I welcome it. The mockery by Tommy and Syl says it all (and Syl has the audacity to call me a bully) and just hardens my resolve, because at the end of the day I actually do care.

Now I again ask people if they want to join me, or is your distain of me greater then doing what is right?

Go figure

We all want Eddie to stay.
Any perceived bullying has to stop. Thread titles should remain on track UNESS there is a natural variation off track..
Threads should NOT deliberately be deflected onto the topic of choice ( usually anti Corbyn, Israel, Jews or semitism).

You regulate the way you post by all means Didge.
I cant change the way I post because I am me on and off the forum, what you see is what you get and I wont be changing.

Can I just say though, that you are really beginning to piss me off the way you think you, and only you can undertsand the way people feel on the forum.
Believe me, if you had one tenth of the intuition you boast about you would stop banging on about yourself, not sure why so many threads turn into your personal platform lately, but they do.
Stop making everything about yourself and stick to the point of the thread.

You are a poster like everyone else, no better no worse....just more annoying sometimes.

That is up to you to think that way

Yesterday I was right about how Nicko felt and Eddie

How is that not intuition?

At the end of the day that is you pushing back on me, because you are holding a bias against me for some wierd reason

That again is up to you

In the real world people come to me, to help them deal and combat with their fears

That is a fact and the reason they do, is becuse I listen and help them understand what is causing them. So that they can then hope to then tackle these problems they face

I mean for you to think its boasting shows you have no idea about how I want to help people

I dont do this for myself, i do it, because i can help and am able to help

So think what you like of me, that is your choice, in the real world, people reach out to me, and the reason they do is based on my intuition, my listening skills and how I can and do help them

Now I do not want to see Eddie leave and Eddie is sick to death of how hate is creeping into the forms of hate we have not seen since the 1930's. That people are being driven by identity politics on here and Eddie is about love and kindness.

Stick to the point unless it naturally grows into related issues as has already been said.
Don't get bogged down in name calling and insults and where everyone else goes away and does something else, while two posters slug it out on egos, not the subject.

For a start no one wants to see anyone leave...stop making such a drama out of something that would possibly blow over if you stopped harping on.

You are just a normal man Didge....people gravitate towards me too....my OH says if a lost soul is within earshot they will pick on me to talk to, Vintage has said the same....ONCE...so what, some people just seem to attract others and their problems, it doesnt make you special, it just means you are open to others....like so many people are.

I have no bias against you, but I am noticing more and more that you want to be the centre of attention in so many threads...so much so that the topic is lost in your self promoting aura. Rolling Eyes

Well this is again showing poor intuition by you

It is a big deal, as clearly Eddie has had enough

Itd down to me to do what I want to do to ensure she stays

I never claimed I am something speical and simple happy that I have helped people get back on track

You seem to really dislike the fact and that in reality I do

I have no idea why

I mean how many poor views above did you have of me?

If I do dnot know better I would think you were jealous

As that is how you are coming across Syl

So I will do what I think is best and if you do not like that, then that is your problem

She is far more important to me, than you ever will be. She is supportive and has done what I do. That is why I relate to her and would help her out in any capacity I can

It is common sense to stick to the natural path of the thread, rather than allowing 1 particular poster to turn it into his own direction as it suits his agenda.

I, and apparently many others are sick of threads being deflected towards rants about Corbyn, Labour, Jews and Anti-Semitism.

Most threads never do turn to Labour, Corbyn, Jews and Antisemitism. The later of which is a massive problem for the Labour Party

So lets put this to the test. Show me how many current threads have turned to Labour, Corbyn, Jews and Antisemitism, that are not actual threads about this?

So the above translates as the left not wanting to talk about issues, that are damaging to them

I have no bias against you, but I am noticing more and more that you want to be the centre of attention in so many threads...so much so that the topic is lost in your self promoting aura. Rolling Eyes


Well this is again showing poor intuition by you

It is a big deal, as clearly Eddie has had enough

Itd down to me to do what I want to do to ensure she stays

I never claimed I am something speical and simple happy that I have helped people get back on track

You seem to really dislike the fact and that in reality I do

I have no idea why

I mean how many poor views above did you have of me?

If I do dnot know better I would think you were jealous

As that is how you are coming across Syl

So I will do what I think is best and if you do not like that, then that is your problem

She is far more important to me, than you ever will be. She is supportive and has done what I do. That is why I relate to her and would help her out in any capacity I can

Just reread your own post and you will see exactly what I mean. Rolling Eyes

I do not need to reread or how again you are again disliking me making a stand to have change

If you think the previous post is about me and not me wanting to help Eddie, then like i say, you must have a subconcious jealousy going on

I mean seriously, I can highligh your post and do the exact same

What does that prove?

Nothing

The interesting thing here is why you are so bothered about me wanting to change, to help make this a better place and for eddie to stay.

Seriously, please take your bitter pill elsewhere

You are not my concern, she is, as I would hate for her to leave, as would many.

Im not bitter or jealous, dont be so stupid.

Pointing out the way you make every thread about yourself, not Eddie...you...is obviously falling on deaf ears.

Two people have told me in the last couple of weeks that one of the reasons they dont post here now is because of the way you steam roller yourself into every thread and make it about you.
Maybe they are bitter and jealous too?  Or maybe they have a point, and if you were as intuitive as you keep claiming you might see that. Rolling Eyes

If you are not, why have you gone out of your way to claim I am an attention seeker, by simple wanting help change things here to ensure Eddie stays?

Seriously syl, please continue to knock me, I can take it on all levels

You and your girlie gang are insignificant to me and in reality are the real bullies when on here

So again please take your bitter pill and go running to Rags and Horatio on their forum, the two people you seem to talk about me, behind my back, to your hearts content. That is what your girlie group does.

Now you are being childish and petulant, the name calling will come next. Laughing 

I dont have a girly gang....unlike you I dont try to drag other posters in for back up in threads.
I havent spoken to Rags since she last logged in here, and I have never spoken to her anywhere else, but I have seen her openly say she doesnt post here much because of you on a couple of occasions...so that makes three.

You just admitted that you have been speaking me to others

The only two posters not on here for a while if Rags and horatio

So please continue to run to people and speak about me

I am fine with that, as seen I have seen the way you 3 act when together and i m not the only one

The way you all treated Jules was appalling

I am just trying to make him see what others see, but he wont/cant/refuses.

I actually like Didge, we have rows but underneath it all I think he means well, and in spite of how he goes off on continuous rants I believe he does have a good heart.

I hold my tongue (or fingers) a lot but lately I cant for some reason, but it backfired as predicted.

This proves Didge is a narcisist with an ego the size of Europe.

It's not the debate that is important to him, but the me, me, me.

Didge could be Trump's script writer.

Wow, such a huge drama over eddie "leaving" when she hasn't even said she's leaving. Has she? Can anybody actually point to her saying "I'm out of here?"

No, she's said she's exasperated by some of the stuff that goes on here, and she thinks she might be outgrowing the mentality of a lot of people here. Truth be told, she didn't have to outgrow that tribal mentality; she was always above it.

The problem isn't her, it's that the tribal mentality is getting worse and worse, and that more than anything else is what's harming debate here.

Look, Didge, you want to be nicer to people here, and that's great. But it's going to take more than one member adjusting his attitude to make this forum more enjoyable for its members.

I'd love it if we could stay more on topic, but that won't fix this place, either.

It will be far more enjoyable when people here start debating and stop the mindless, meaningless flinging of shit at people who disagree with them. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that more than anything else is what's boring people about this place, and it's not just eddie.

That is why I am trying to lead by example and stopping name calling

So you are right, its going to take others to do the same, hence why i am making a start with me

If I can do so, then so can others here

Listen, I didn’t mean to start a huge argument or turn myself into the Goodbye And Farwell Circus.

I am simply going through a tough time being away from my husband and sometimes the frustration of that, coupled with the fact that he and I occasionally choose to kill each other with it by tearing each other apart, and that this place gets so vile and nasty and yes, like a tribal war zone...well it just makes my very soul, so very tired.

I’m not leaving. This forum is a great place and I like helping to keep it ticking over.

It’s just that sometimes, more and more often, I feel like a lone voice in the wilderness.

I’ve had a crappy couple of days and I’m having to juggle a lot of balls in a little space of time.

Let’s just leave it there. Peace out and namaste.

Honestly Ben, you know the source. You'll get nowhere saying everyone behave...when the source just takes advantage of the quiet to gather for the next salvo.

No I have not Quill and I see you have not listened to a thing both Ben and Eddie said

Instead, just looking to start again

So the best thing to do is ignore you until you alter your attitude and abuse

Good luck
