So long and thanks for all the fish
« on: November 18, 2017, 08:58:29 PM »
Since some people are so absolutely mother fucking certain that they alone understand my motivation and can see right through me, I see no point whatsoever in engaging this community any further. Because nothing I say will be taken for what it is.

Since some of ya'll know me so well I guess the best thing I can do is hand over my account and abandon it so that whoever wants to put words into my mouth may do so freely.

As a child, I used to cry for myself. Now, I cry for humanity.

I really don't recommend doing this, actually.

If you feel someone is being inappropriate, report their behavior, don't just take it till you want to blow up at them or at the forum in general.

See ya. Hope you return. I'll probably be gone soon as well.

Wow, looks like I've missed a whole lot of drama in the last day or two.

It's sad how political crap infects everything now.

Just another cycle in the WWGHA annals.

Here's my advice to anyone who wants to spend a few minutes thinking about it. Take this forum too seriously, and you'll never find a way to stop by and join a discussion now and then. I know I can't be the ultimate judge of my own behavior, but I have most definitely and most purposefully worked to stop getting into arguments where it gets personal. With the exception of my recent outburst with BibleStudent, I hope to continue that trend!

The thing is, if you ever find yourself upset about something on this forum, take a break. No one is obliged to post or reply here, so there really is no pressure at all - that comes from each individual who decides to engage. We've seen people get angry and leave, some come back, others never do. Never let the forum get the best of you as a person.

Hoping this is just temporary, Mr. B and that you will return once you feel on more of an even keel. But if you're feeling so much pressure / need to not participate here, then you probably should leave for a bit. I'm hoping it will not last; I for one would miss you.

Regarding taking breaks, people may remember that I tend to do that a fair bit.  I've found that I actually cause myself more grief when I don't give myself time to regain my equanaminity.

Have fun with it.

I personally would much prefer that you don’t let another person’s mistake like that put you off posting Mr Blackwell. At the end of the day that’s their error. Why decide to do that over someone else’s mistake?

Of course ultimately your choice, but I would really like you to stay.

Maybe take a bit of time away, let the heat of the moment settle and see how you feel later? Just a suggestion.

Acrually, forget I asked the above. I’ve now got some idea.

Great. Seems to me that this place is now starting to go down a pretty toxic communication road.

One Above All, I am inclined to see that it would have been better if you’d given Mr Blackwell more of a chance to explain himself civilly before being so quick to jump in with the accusations. There may well have been an explanation you don’t see.

I do see you’ve got something of a serious attitude issue.

I pointed out fallacies and attitudes. I did not assume his reasons, motives, et cetera.
