Extra points for trying.

I'm sure it helps you to believe that, but you were totally out of line, way beyond anything rational. Trumplike. To say that "'sledgehammer to crack a nut' would be an understatement", would be an understatement.

And the board is poorer for it. I don't even check in every day any more because it's three posters replying to every fucking thread and nothing funny*. which is mostly what I came here for. I suspect I'm not alone in that.

Go ahead, return fire. The only thing I really care about atm is beest and he doesn't come here any more either. same reason.


*except the occasional gem from grav and nob and maybe one other poster

Nut with a sledgehammer? Fuckin A. If I disagreed with her, instead of argueing her position she'd attack me tooth and claw. Nobody gets away with that. I even tried to be tolerant sometimes if it was just a snide remark, but she seldom stopped there. Snowflakes shouldn't play with fire.

I had the same problem with you as another poster, it so happened we would be on the board at the same time almost every day. So I was usually the first to post and they took it as picking on them.
So you would rather let the board sit idle because people aren't posting?

Return fire? I can't return fire until you fire first. All you've done is express your opinion on my interaction with Shawnee, and the way the board has been going. I don't see that as a personal attack on me or anyone. I wish more people would state their opinion rather than slinking away.

Just because you're a citizen now that doesn't negate you came from a culture who think Peter Sellers was funny.

Some people would say you are supposed to climb down into the hole with the person and keep them company, but while I understand where they are coming from, I am skeptical. It might be appreciated, but who does it help?

I don't really see it in terms of right and wrong, but more in terms of usefulness and effectiveness.

If you try throwing a rope and the person in the hole acts like you threw a boulder, then maybe that's the time to just leave them to it.Not in a nasty way - just recognise that the person you are trying to help, clearly doesn't actually want you to help - in that moment they're just venting.

I just don't see much point in pushing it in that situation - the person venting ends up feeling under attack and so does the person trying to help them.

Everybody ends up feeling like a bag of shite and for no gain.

That is true but let me be annoying and state it another way.

The most sexist thing that I have ever said, but will continue to say anyway, is:

Women WORRY about problems. Men SOLVE them.

I try to Don't Worry, but, I'm still working on Be Happy.

Whoever is doing it, worrying doesn't do anything. If you can get by without it, well, it's just one less thing to do.

Worry motivates me to solve problems. That is to day, when I have anxiety, I worry on how to eliminate it.
