"i've been ignoring you for over 3 years, though!"

Can't say I missed your attention...

Flint, this is the net, not the highway...you can't 'help' him and you can't stop him...but: you (and others) can ignore him (instead of using him as your soapbox).

Ii think the original comment was ban worthy. That said, I also accept that he's been here and a part of the community long enough for us to cut some slack and accept that his particular state of mind is likely to produce inappropriate behaviour at times.

I think the shit storm that blew up around it was absolutely warranted and served a positive purpose in drawing to JB's attention just how unacceptable that behaviour is in this community.

It's not about soap boxes. We all have a stake in this community and sometimes how we see ourselves is challenged by something. It is appropriate, in my view, to have these discussions at such times. It's not just about the individuals, it's about who we are as a community.

"...he will probably end up getting his teeth kicked in..."

That may be exactly what he needs...not for you or I to say...certainly not for you or I to prevent.

I doubt any of this mobbish behavior has a damn thing to do with 'being of service', anyway.

Self-aggrandizement, thy name is (average) cellar (dweller).

"..this community..." "...these discussions..."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

as I wrote in a private, just a short time...

'Me: don't give a shit why flint or dana or any or them do what they do...I'm pretty sure I nailed the(ir) motivation in my post.'

'I don't give a shit about the nutjob/troll...fuck 'em.'

'I involved myself not to defend or attack, but to point out the absurdity of going on and on about the nutjob when getting rid of him is easy-peasy.'

'just ignore him and watch him (1) reform himself, or (2) go away.'

'That no one does says way more about each of them than it does his 'crime'.'


With that: I leave 'you' folks to saving souls and redeeming lives...

Ignoring him would be the absolute worst thing we could do. This is my opinion. I believe that he is asking for help (correct me if I am wrong about this). The problem is that he doesn't like the help he's getting, so he ignores it, or attacks in retaliation, retreating to an "easy" position, i.e. black-and-white characterizations (which are wildly irrelevant to learning anything about the actual situation). This is the person which you tell, "I'm sorry, I love you, but you have to leave." This IS the help. Ignoring is not the same thing.

There is no mob, soapbox, groupthink, or pitchfork invloved in this.

I must say I am slightly disappointed to hear that. I'd quite like a go at a pitchfork...

I don't see what's funny about this being a community or these being discussions.

Does henry not relish the feeling of self-aggrandizement he gets through chastising us from his soapbox?

Oops! Watch that double-edged sword.

I think the bridge is just out. And we are all piling up in traffic. Each just rear ending each other. It just so happens that I was the first one in line and I am about to get pushed over. And querks it's the 'information super highway'..

"I am about to get pushed over."

No, looks to me as if you're jumping of your own accord.

Good luck with that.

#

"And querks it's the 'information super highway'."

No, it's an overrated, ill-used, network of over-powered and over-priced calculators. Nothing more or less.

##

"Does henry not relish the feeling of self-aggrandizement he gets through chastising us from his soapbox?"

No, I relish the self-edification.

##

"I don't see what's funny about this being a community or these being discussions."

I know you don't...that's part of what makes it funny.

Is it just me, or is henry an arrogant asshole?


I mean, it really could just be me..... I truly have been ignoring him.
