To Ben from Shady.

Post by Guest on Wed Jul 02, 2014 8:29 pm

First topic message reminder :

Good evening Ben.

First of all the niceties.How are your knees? Well I hope.

Ben,not that it bothers me,because I hardly post here or on Inaflap anymore but.....having read through all this garbage about hacking between Flap & this site I can tell you what will happen next.

This site will go the same way...It will crash & burn.

Unfortunately Ben,it's what always happens because the same old names are in the thick of it.Same old names.Same old routine.Same old thing.

Shame really but that's how it is.

I'm sorry, Cass, I just felt like I needed to get that out there. And it's true.

We don't do cheese on toast here Smile

And cheese on toast IS a serious topic. Got to have Worcestershire sauce on it though!

You know it's true.

I don't "take sides." I agree with some people sometimes and disagree with them at other times. You can ask Sassy, she and I don't always see eye to eye. We do agree on a lot. I used to get along with Nems quite well for that matter; if you ask her and she's honest, I've been perfectly friendly with her.

Then she decided I was protecting Phil and, despite all that's gone on since, she's got this narrative about me now -- I'm a bad guy -- and she's chomped down on it and won't let go.

I answer what's said to me on a moment-by-moment basis. I'd be happy to bury the hatchet. But I can't argue with someone who has me "all figured out" and I'm not obliged to ignore it when someone has a go at me. I do that a lot more than you might realize already.

Fair enough on some of your points.
But it does seem as though you take sides sometimes, and while I see that as natural, I find it a little off when you tackle some, but not others, for doing exactly the same thing.
I disagree with you sometimes, but you're not like that with me.

That's the key right there, which I bolded, I know it's not personal when it's not a relentless sort of thing.

I've tried to be chummy with people here ranging from Nems to BA, even to smelly (remember when I left him in charge?). A gesture of good will and no (permanent) hard feelings, even if we disagree on everything.

When that isn't reciprocated, I know the other person just has it in for me for whatever reason, and I honestly have no space for anyone who's like that, whether to me or to others, whether I agree with them on everything or not. It's "toxic," to use a term from pop psychology ...

Well people on here get very heated and there's a lot of bad history, so it does get personal.
But you have to remember it's BOTH sides that are wrong - if you want to call it that - but it does seem you think only a certain side is wrong.

Anyway, I have to go and paint an ogres toenails now.....just to give you a thrill

She doesn't have any narrative about you, Ben.  For christ sake, you are becoming a fourth wave on this site.  Left, right, sassy posse...and now you??

What next?  Nems may be blunt, but the harder she hits she's just telling it like it is.  She isn't playing your balls on the PM lines either, is she?  That tells you she shoots straight.

Jesus Christ, look, I'm not in a "gang," I'm not on anyone's side. Do I have people I like and people I don't like? Naturally, that doesn't mean I've joined some preposterous internet army, for fuck's sake.

Well, what do you expect from me? Ben, you are letting the politics on this board run wild. You're being pulled around like a rag doll.

It's not all your doing...you are being played. And like Didge, above, I think it begins up in your mods' den. Only, god knows I'm not afraid to say it. I've said it plenty of times to Irn to his face, and I'll say it directly to you. Ain't no secret...I'll talk out loud.

Well, we don't need to worry about it tonight. I'm outspoken and above-board because I don't want to be accused of working the PM lines...which will surely happen otherwise. PMs are not my style.

So, forgive me if I sound brusk...it's just so everyone knows where I stand and what I'm saying...and not behind anyone's back.

Well, I don't care what people accuse me of doing, because it happens pretty much constantly these days anyway, and I don't see it ending anytime soon. Sure, I want people to know where I stand, but they don't believe me, so fuck it!

Remember?

It's because she knows sassy.  If there is any narrative, it is that.  They were once tight friends and she sees every move being made.

But my point is it has nothing to do with you.  She has no narrative about you.  She's just a bit jaundiced when she sees sassy going to work on you...and that's where you see a bit of cynicism.  You are not the target of any sarcasm or even criticism; she is simply mindful of the games being played on you.

Now, lets please get off the subject lest we become unfair to others, who are not present on US Central and Pacific time.

I appreciate what you are trying to say, veya. But you are preaching to the choir over here.

You saw the Golden Gate Bridge thread and how, as an example, targeted/hate threads go. Are you aware that the thread went on for 16-pages? Are you aware that I dropped out at page 4, after pointing out that it was a simple hate thread? That's last week...a week ago today, I was not a participant. Just so you know when these hate threads get going...I'm not there.

It's very clear that the site has some vermin working on/in it. Certain people are adept at creating passive/aggressive threads that stimulate the extended affrays. It does no good to paint everyone with the same brush. Admin has some hard choices to make. The site has gotta get beyond this stuff.

And veya, you are the right-hand man. You've gotta help Ben in this regard. Nuff said by me.

Well Part of the Issue is that both sides are Often as bad as each other.  Neither Nems nor Sassy is without fault.
And they are hardly the only ones
BUT the REAL POINT IS
it is meant to be FUN !!!!!!  People coming here with the wrong intentions are ruining it....  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad 

If anyone is coming here for no other reason than to abuse another member 'fuck off'.  Now I am anti-banning people You can ask Ben and Irn, I was one who supported giving Phil another chance but..... hey sometimes you got cut your losses if it aint worth it.

It's not about you, Ben.  Remember, I was defending Nems about a putative narrative?

She made it about me, dude. Every time Sassy dares agree with me on something, Nems has got to stick her nose in with some smart comment and start up the conspiracy theory again.

Remember?

It's because she knows sassy.  If there is any narrative, it is that.  They were once tight friends and she sees every move being made.

But my point is it has nothing to do with you.  She has no narrative about you.  She's just a bit jaundiced when she sees sassy going to work on you...and that's where you see a bit of cynicism.  You are not the target of any sarcasm or even criticism; she is simply mindful of the games being played on you.

Now, lets please get off the subject lest we become unfair to others, who are not present on US Central and Pacific time.

No man, I'm not going to just let that stand, OK? You just said:

sassy going to work on you

and I'm telling you that nobody's "going to work" on me.

You're making (the two of you, now) biased assumptions. I'm sorry, but that's foolish and I won't let it pass without speaking up.

So what if Sassy and I PM one another -- what you're asserting here is that I'm not my own person, and what I am asserting in response to that insult is "Fuck you."

Above-board enough for you?

Well, as it turns out, more to say have I.

I didn't ask for this site to be made up of its current membership, but I made it a point to welcome everyone and try to get off on the best possible footing with them. You can look -- Allakaka was welcomed aboard, for Christ's sake. I didn't know anything about any of you except for the people Lurker, Veya and I invited from NewsHabit and ShortNews, the people I actually made this site for since we'd been hanging out at both sites and gotten pretty much royally fucked over at both.

We never asked Phil to invite everyone from InAFlap, ADO, etc. over here. None of us had ever heard of those sites and probably would not have until a huge wave of new users came over here -- many disgusted with those sites or migrating in order to keep kicking Phil.

You came and with few exceptions, most of you began carrying on your old feuds with no regard to mine or the other admins' endless requests to stop carrying on feuds from other sites. I mean, we said it again and again and again and again and again and again. And again.

You also (most of you) began trying to tell me who to like and who not to like, who was good and who was bad. It was an unfair situation to put me or any of us into and you should know that; none of us had any idea what kind of history existed between any of you ...

and I cannot repeat this emphatically enough ...

I JUST DO NOT GIVE ONE TENTH OF A FUCK. And nobody else does besides you lot. NOBODY! It is not important, people! We've got ISIS on the horizon and immigrant/native tensions in the UK and fucking Tony Abbott! And that's why we made this site, not who's on whose fucking stupid-ass bullshit internet gang!

You understand me? I don't care who you don't like, Quill. I don't care who Sassy doesn't like. I don't care who Nems doesn't like. I don't care about one last iota of any fucking bit of any tiny little piece of what happened on Sky or InaFlap or ADO or whatever fuck-tard websites you guys came here from. I DON'T CARE.



Why the hell would I? Honestly, put yourself into my shoes for a second and revel at how little you would give a flying fuck in my situation.

And guess what else? I have friends and family and a job that I try to do well, and this site is causing me more grief than it is giving me diversion. If it's not BigAndy trying in all his little rat-dick ways to piss me off, it's Nems trying to piss me off or any number of people trying to convince me that I am a fucking idiot who doesn't have the slightest clue about what he's doing. Or it's just vile bigotry and endless trying to breaking up fights that have origins in issues I can't possibly understand in any kind of objective fashion -- nor should I try, since me and the admin team are supposedly running a site for adults.

This is supposed to be fun, goddammit! This is supposed to be the sort of thing people do to blow off a little steam and relax. Can I tell you -- with no self-pity or reassurance seeking -- how many times I've just wanted to walk away from all of this bullshit? Hell, when I was on my last vacation I used it as an excuse not to log in here, and when I came back from it I only logged in because I'm the fucking head admin and I certainly don't expect Veya, Lurker, Irn or anybody else to want to take over this gigantic steaming pile of dogshit.

Ah ... I'm glad that's out of my system ...

So, forgive me if I sound brusk...it's just so everyone knows where I stand and what I'm saying...and not behind anyone's back.

I'm pretty much like that Quill; I don't do little whispering Pm's into admins ear - however they're dressed up - everything I say to Ben I say right here.

Hey edds, can you tell I'm a bit angry about it? Feeling a bit put-upon? Smile

No regrets, though, I think I needed to say it, if only for my own sake.

Ben you can ask anyone anywhere, I don't bad-mouth you. I've always been straight with you in private and in public.
I appreciate the headache that other people's spats must give you - I don't understand any of the spats brought over from bitchfest for example and I don't care - so I get where you're coming from.

I think you're a fair person, perhaps a little biased at times which is natural, we all are!
But on the whole I don't dislike you at all.
I've said so to you and to anyone else.

I switch off my iPad if I'm getting irritated, to me, that's the best solution x

I appreciate it edds, you've never been anything but up front with me and more to the point, I've never seen you decide that me, or anyone else, is this or that, permanently.

We all have our bad moments, that's why we give Phil such a long leash and let him back on. Jesus, if we're all to be judged by our worst moments than none of us are worth a shit. I try to be open about it and not to have an ego about it, and that's really the best I can do.

I think we need to take a leaf out of me Lady's book, by moving on from old grudges.

We are after all guests here and guests who take advantage of their hosts are not the best guests to have around, thus it is about time we allow them to enjoy the forum they set out to create and stop giving them daily headaches. We all have differences with some posters, but we are also adult enough to move on and debate. Fine take the piss in debates, but there is no need to cross the line and the door swings both ways to enter and leave a forum. Thus what people need to ask themselves is would they put up with guests like some of us daily in their own homes.

It is the weekend and it is the 4th of July, so am sending big celebrations to our Colonial friends.

Happy Independence Day

You shouldn't really take sides as admin; it doesn't help you see things fairly.

You know it's true.

I don't "take sides." I agree with some people sometimes and disagree with them at other times. You can ask Sassy, she and I don't always see eye to eye. We do agree on a lot. I used to get along with Nems quite well for that matter; if you ask her and she's honest, I've been perfectly friendly with her.

Then she decided I was protecting Phil and, despite all that's gone on since, she's got this narrative about me now -- I'm a bad guy -- and she's chomped down on it and won't let go.

I answer what's said to me on a moment-by-moment basis. I'd be happy to bury the hatchet. But I can't argue with someone who has me "all figured out" and I'm not obliged to ignore it when someone has a go at me. I do that a lot more than you might realize already.

okey dokey Ben lets just clarify a couple of things shall we?!

You did protect Phil you only ever intervened when it was too late and he had caused mayhem again. You said he was banned then allowed him back. OK you took the offending post down fast but there was no censure from you for those saying so what.
Never ever have I said I have you all figured out, quite the opposite. One moment you are witty and appear to have it sussed, next you are like a kid not picked for the team threatening to take his ball home.
Eddie is entirely right you are biased which is not good for any forum. I have told you before, get your ego rub from Sassy, thats not my style and I certainly dont have a burning desire to trace you IRL etc
Not one thing I have ever said has been a lie or disproved.
I am more than happy to bury the hatchet, but I can see how that will happen until you start to run this place. Look at your first sentence "ask Sassy". Why? Speak for your self.
Im afraid Sassy has become the 'Emperor's new clothes' for this forum. Those who back her no matter how much trouble she brings ( I see she is still obsessed with who is where and ISPs) do so because the first one to admit she has had them over is going to be the fall guy.
Happy to be friends Ben but know 2 things. I dont lie and I am not a suck up. I am however loyal to those who are loyal to me and I am well witty and well clever.

You saw the Golden Gate Bridge thread and how, as an example, targeted/hate threads go.  Are you aware that the thread went on for 16-pages?  Are you aware that I dropped out at page 4, after pointing out that it was a simple hate thread?  That's last week...a week ago today, I was not a participant.  Just so you know when these hate threads get going...I'm not there.

It's very clear that the site has some vermin working on/in it.  Certain people are adept at creating passive/aggressive threads that stimulate the extended affrays.  It does no good to paint everyone with the same brush.  Admin has some hard choices to make.  The site has gotta get beyond this stuff.

And veya, you are the right-hand man.  You've gotta help Ben in this regard.  Nuff said by me.

Well Part of the Issue is that both sides are Often as bad as each other.  Neither Nems nor Sassy is without fault.
And they are hardly the only ones
BUT the REAL POINT IS
it is meant to be FUN !!!!!!  People coming here with the wrong intentions are ruining it....  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad 

If anyone is coming here for no other reason than to abuse another member 'fuck off'.  Now I am anti-banning people You can ask Ben and Irn, I was one who supported giving Phil another chance but..... hey sometimes you got cut your losses if it aint worth it.

Again, Nems. You have no idea what Sassy and I converse about, nor is it any of your business, and I find it astonishing that you would offer as fact your theories about it based on how little you know, or could possibly know.

You insult me when you imply (again and again and again) that I'm being controlled. I don't like being thoughtlessly insulted by uninformed people. I have respect for people who have actually thought their criticism through. So if you can get to the point where instead of unfounded criticism, you can actually give me a fair assessment of something I'm actually doing wrong, I'll listen.

I run this place as best as I can without making it my top priority, which it is far from. If you don't like it, hey -- you're the one who chose to come here.

I say "ask Sassy" to convey the fact that she can confirm what I am saying, not as a way of not speaking for myself -- and if you gave me the benefit of the doubt you'd give a fucking pickpocket, you might actually consider that possibility.

I don't care for suck-ups. I like it when people are upfront -- and also FAIR. I feel you have been unfair to me, as you have no knowledge of the discussions I had with other members, including administrators, about giving Phil another shot, nor do you see that I did that from an attitude of trying to forgive people and realizing that none of us are perfect. I was trying to be nice to someone. Nor do you know that I was the one who banned him, without consulting anyone else, when I was SURE we had made a mistake. Not only sure, but I knew I was sure. Good way to conduct yourself in my book.

If all you have to offer is conspiracy theory nonsense, then with all due respect -- fuck out of my existence, because I do not need that and I'm tired of dealing with childish tribal wars and unneeded negativity.

Why? Why can't you just say something straight for once, why do I have to puzzle through your meaning? It's nearly 4 a.m. here!

Well, what are you going to do, Ben?  You can go through the night yelling 'shit' and 'fuck' and being a child, or you can do something about it.  As an aside, perhaps I should mention that it ain't gonna change unless you do something about it.

You don't make people comfortable because all of your actions, even your examples, have you chummin' up to sassy and irn...the very people who go out and start target/hate threads on your own board.  **There...don't say I don't give you specific examples!**  You say, 'ask sassy.'   You beat up on Nems.  You argue back and forth with Eds.  And yet you have nothing to say about sassy and Irn and their target/hate threads.  Plus, you got veya cheering you on...to what?  Does that give you some idea of the impression you are making?

Maybe you are not cut out for this job.  It seems that everything is all Oh, I'm put upon...woe is me.  Or, when people speak frankly, Oh, I'm being unfairly criticized.  Or, just generally, You people are so argumentative.  But when your own favorite people go out and start a target/hate thread right under your own nose, you have nothing to say.  What kind of an impression do you think you are leaving?

I think you started out a nice, quiet little narrow-market website, intended for 8-10 members, and everyone would be chums.  Guess what--you got handed a community and a big-time medium, complete with a 'Features Section' and 'Letters to the Editor', and 'Opinions', and even ‘Sports’...something that many, including your own employers, would die for: News media that gets listened to.

Can you handle it?  Do you want to?  You're sure doing a lot of complaining for someone who is in such a coveted position.  This is opportunity, pal.  Shouting and crying 'fuck' ain't gonna cut it.

You're running this place like the little neighborhood backyard clubhouse.  You're letting your friends run a-muck.  You shout back at people who complain...or just try to give you a little advice.  You shout anyway.  And everywhere!  Everywhere!  It's Oh, too hard...oh, too hard...oh, too hard.

Well maybe it is not for you.  I never said 'no' to opportunity, so I don't know what a person looks or feels like who says 'no'.  Maybe this.  But if you are a professional, and you have been just given a professional opportunity, in your profession...this is it kid.  This is not your backyard clubhouse.  You either develop a plan, set up some standards, and follow them, or admit your own mediocrity in your chosen profession.

This is it my friend.  Life is now...it’s always now.

The only people doing that are you and Nems and the more you do it, the stupider you will look. So please carry on.
