First topic message reminder :

Has it become about being right?

Has it become about Winning for your political side - Right wing/Left wing Republican/Democrat?

Has it made you narrow minded so that you must agree with something because it is your “label”?

Has it taken away your ability to see fellow posters as human beings?



How important is it to you, to be so rigid in your beliefs that you are petrified of actually listening to an opposite view in case it makes you question everything you thought you knew?

Just how open are you?

I've pulled you up a couple of times, for some of your harsh, heartless RW comments. 
Disagreeing with you, is NOT ''being rude''.  I dunno why you are so fixated with the word ''rude.'' 
Are you a fragile china doll who no one should say ''boo'' to ?


Anyway imo it is far better to be upfront and actually say why you disagree with someone's post (my method)
than to sit there silently, secretly pressing the red stripe button (your method).


Are you seriously saying that on a PUBLIC forum, people should only challenge your views if they know you personally, and if you are speaking directly to them???? Shocked Shocked Shocked .

I have been on forums for around 13 years with many different people . I know you know all about my past because of the things you are saying . Your attitude towards me was very brash giving me the impression that you knew me formally . Perhaps that's why you appear so sassy Razz

The ONLY thing I know about your **past**, is what you said and did to sassy after her daughter died.
I know because she told me, and she told everyone else.
You were cruel and heartlessly insensitive to her.
I know nowt else about you and I don't want to know.


I make no apologies for mentioning about sassy because it's YOU who brought up her name, not me.


Now I've had my say and I will move on, it's up to you if you want to move on too, or if you want to sit here droning on about sassy of all people.  Rolling Eyes

Fairly open. I try to see both sides of a story and be fairly balanced.

The acid test is this: people should never be able to automatically guess what opinion you are going to post on a given story, before you even post it. With extreme people you always know exactly how they are going to reply, in every thread.

At the core i am liberal tho, and i don't flipflop in my core beliefs but I try to be accommodating if poss.

Yes, the nerve you hit was reminding me of how cruel you were towards sassy after her daughter died.
Irn Bru said he had never seen such cruelty.

You came to this thread and instead of just saying ''hi everyone'' you made a sanctimonious butter-would-not-melt post instead. But you are no saint. None of us is.

Yes, I agree, let's leave it there!

LOL you are trying to tell me that you're not sassy ? If you're not why the hell would a random poster tell you a pack of lies about me ? Do you think it was a one sided thing and sassy never did a thing wrong lol .

I have kept every bit of abuse from back then , its all stored so if you like I can show you some of the abuse I and my husband received.

You must have been missing a good argument you jumped straight onto my post and then we got to this crap once again.

Sit and argue with yourself because I have some things to do which are more interesting than going over a load of arguments from years ago .

What's it to you anyway baffles me a total stranger sticking up for another poster because she told you things about me . One thing I will say though Irn Bru was a friend of sassy's so i understand but I just wish he had told you the other abuse which I received , I can assure you it wasn't just sassy receiving abuse she is more than capable of giving it out . I know she isn't all sweet lol .

So I'll be off now , you did a great job of turning a perfectly good thread into a war zone, just like sassy would . Razz Laughing

Actually VD , it was you that parachuted into this thread and derailed it. You could have used dozens of adjectives, but you chose to use the same word as your forum nemesis..
Sassy no longer posts. But I will text her that you send her all your love and fondest wishes.

Jules, you obviously fancied having your say to Vod, we can all see that, so why not just say “I don’t  like you because I have a friend that you’ve upset” instead of all this bollocks?
It’s your prerogative not to like someone, whether anyone else agrees or not. It’s the pretence that it’s all about something else - the leading her down the path you want to take, like a lamb to th slaughter - that’s the fake part of it all.

Just be honest.  

I wish people would just Fucking say what they mean.

1. Dunno why VOD brought up sassy's name, out of the blue.  Sassy's gone, leave her be - she  is probably standing for local elections again, in her constituency, and getting on with her life, she's no longer on forums.  


2. When VOD came to this thread, if she had just said something like  ''hi everyone'' I would not have said anything to her.  But instead, she came out with a sob story about people being mean and rude to her, the poor little lamb. Having your political views challenged is not mean-ness or rudeness!


3. Yes I have challenged her posts for the way she used to hero-worship Trump, use him in her avatar and pretend he could do nothing wrong. Her Trump posts had a DELIBERATE taunting element, and she posted other general harsh RW opinions too.


4. She said she only gave reds to people who spoke badly of about Jews - well I have NEVER said one single word about Jews/ Judaism/Zionism on here.  I know nowt about them. I am of Christian faith, I have zero knowledge of Jewish faith or politics.

At the risk of stating the obvious, VOD's first post in this thread was answering the OP, she wasn't the one who leapt in just to criticise, she was on topic.

What are you going on about today,  eddie...

Jules has been quite honest amd open on here..

If there's any bullshitting and deflection through this thread, then that is coming mainly from VoD herself and some of her idiotic supporters.

Every clear thinking and rational person on here knows quite well that any antagonism towards VoD and her lesser half HF has been because of their incessant trolling, nasty proselytising and attempted bullying, and not because of any "faith" issues..

About seven, is when it’s supposed to get dark. But it’s more like 6:53pm, truth be told.

Isn’t it amusing when a poster jumps in to troll a thread by accusing someone of being a troll?

I think you're wrong actually I posted on the thread my thoughts and it ended up with the gang who don't like me taking off track and then having their usual dig .

Please do send sassy my love and tell her I hope she is well . I mean that sincerely as like you my message of love is genuine not of sarcasm .

You accused me of parachuting in on a thread to gain sympathy. Why couldn't you have just moved on instead of making matters worse. I appreciate you are friends with sassy but if you really wanted to help her to move on you could have just left t , but you chose to contribute to jules comments.
I think you will find also if you read what you said , you were sarcastic about saying you'll send my love and best wishes to sassy . That was sarcasm but my love and best for sassy is actually genuine .

VOD, "reds" don't mean a bloody thing when it comes to the ranking of matters of real importance. Just consider them as a badge of honour, as I do.

And please don't quit. You and I have had our disagreements in the past, but in my humble opinion your views are just as valid, important and worthy of being debated as those of anyone else here - or anywhere else for that matter. And I feel the same about HF; it is a shame that he is not here too.

Yep they don't do anything Neutral 

I was thinking of making them give +1 one reputation too, make it more 'notoriety' than 'popularity', I couldn't remember if i did it or not  geek

They are so petty (reds). I just checked and I've never given one (though I did in the past, elsewhere, now I just don't see the point). Though, having looked at it, I am pretty sparing with greens too tbf Laughing

They make people feel they have some sort of power though, I imagine, so I guess they at least serve the purpose of making people with low self-esteem feel good about themselves for a second Razz

Wolf, while I pretty much fully agree with you on HF, Syl is absolutely not a troll or nasty minded at all. You two might have had disagreements, but keep it civil Wink

Thank you Eilzel.

All I saw in this thread was a poster giving her opinion on how people can be treated online when trying to debate....which was on topic.
Obviously things happened before that I and probably others had no knowledge of, and that gave certain posters the opportunity to swoop in and pull her to pieces.

In simple terms, she has been bullied and it's not nice to see....it does answer the thread title nicely though..

Reds don't matter its true, but my point was that giving a red in this instance about me and my hubby was like Syl said someone making sure that their disapproval of my hubby re joining .
It was obvious to me anyway .
Thank you Syl and Fred , it is up to the admin though whether HF can rejoin as it was veya that banned him in the first place lol

Isn’t it amusing when a poster jumps in to troll a thread by accusing someone of being a troll?

Idea

I have never trolled, anywhere, anytime...

Period..

I suggest you actually learn the meaning of the word, eddie.

I used to say that, but I don't really mind them any more.
(Or maybe I don't care any more, either way.)

As i said earlier, i have never given a red and never will, end of. Pretty straightforward really.  Laughing  


Now, with greens, it a bit more complicated, more tricky. Let me explain >
Originally i'd said i'd never give greens either, Laughing And i rigidly stuck to my resolve for nearly 2 years!  

Trouble is . . . I was getting sooo many greens! (NO IDEA who were giving them to me  Has debating made you forget you are human?  - Page 3 2190311264 ).
It seemed quite ungrateful of me not to give any back.
(Bit like saying you don't bother giving out christmas presents, but then, if you keep receiving them, what then?  Has debating made you forget you are human?  - Page 3 2190311264 ) So after about 2 years here, my resolve broke, and i started giving greens out!!

Giving & receiving greens is fine by me. 
I don't care if they are sometimes handed out 'too generously'. At least they represent positivity.
I will never moan about them being awarded 'too generously' - cos, well … I don't mind!

So bye bye for now and Syl thank you for you kind words and support . x

eddie thank you also for your support - I'll message you before I take another break from here .x

I wouldn’t worry about andy and wolf, they love getting riled up.
You’d be doing them a favour.

So they way I see this is as follows

Dibs makes a view that people do not want her husband back

Jules makes Digs and Dibs

Dibs makes digs at Jules and because she does not know her, thinks this is actually sassy

Jules then drags up things from the past

Dibs replies

Then Andy jumps in shit stiring

Then Wolf jumps instorring

And Eddie jumps in stirring

Each and all of them takling sides

Complete and utter mud slinging from all sides

Let the past stay in the past

Things horrible have been said to many posters, including towards Dibs as well.

Time people moved on
