A slight return to normalcy.
Gesture appreciated, whoever changed the title back....
Once again. I started a thread inviting people to go in there and have civil discussions, and first it was crashed by our resident racist..... and then it was called "bait" by a forum moderator.
What is this world coming to...
I’m getting confused by fenald changing the thread name. It must have really hit a nerve as I haven’t seen him do it like this before. I also have yet to see anyone defend big brother D and defend his posts.
No. No it wasn't. And I'm disappointed if not surprised that you would go along with the popular (if only by two people) narrative.
It's a bit presumptuous to claim to know the reasoning behind a thread like that, unless we've known each other for longer than we have.
That's what's wrong with trying to read between the lines. Sometimes there ARE no in-betweens and then it becomes a matter of making things up at our convenience.
There's something to be said for reading things at face value.
So proceed with the "buds" in response, but at this point I pretty much don't care. You (and whomever) will believe what you want to believe, whether it's sworn on a stack of Bibles or not.
I would actually use the PM or chat functions if I thought it was going to do any good.
But it's painfully obvious the three of you have long made up your minds as to the intentions behind anything I say, so there's that.
Sad commentary on the state of things, really... when one cannot even attempt to honestly engage, leaving past differences behind and starting from scratch.
In that regard, I consider myself fortunate that I'm able to do that in real life, and that mirrors my ability to do the same in a forum.
The fact that not everyone is capable/willing to do so in a forum is well....... very telling indeed. Forum authorities be damned.
If we can get past that, we could probably begin to make some progress.
As far as the "let's be honest" about my thread being "bait" well..... think what you will. I'll just state that it wasn't bait, and I'm old enough to know the difference between baiting someone and truthfully attempting to hash out differences in a civil manner. Amazing that my "let's be civil" thread can be called "bait".... but reams upon reams of insult-heaping threads and posts between two people... as well as thread titles being changed at will.... those things are ok and applauded with a wink or two.
I'm not the only one to object to some of the double standards here. I'm just one of the most vocal... and that seems to rub some of you the wrong way.
