Okay, I understand taking the ability to smite from the Shelter but how about allowing a member not only to badmouth administration but members as well?
If we can't defend ourselves, those of us not permitted in the Shelter, than they shouldn't be allowed to say things against others, case in point:
God is better than the ones who locked me away in this shelter. My freewill has been denied by cruel and unfair mods. God made me a loving person despite what a person believes. I believe I'm here because of fear. Love is courage. Fear is weakness.
I am not an attention whore, if so, then everybody on this site is the same thing, Dante and Nam. I don't see how any body with good common sense would think this a way to a more peaceful and proper world.
Honestly, Nam, I really don't see why you feel the need to defend yourself. I'm reading the above, and I confess that she gets under my skin a bit on that one, but it's a pretty fleeting feeling. It's her modus operandi, and she isn't going to change. At least to me, she has zero
credibility. None. I consider practically every single thing she posts as flamebait
I hazard to guess that I'm in the minority insofar as considering her posts to be dominated by inflammatory intention. It's a rather extreme view and could certainly be considered unfair by some. The less extreme view - that she is primary emotionally driven and doesn't really process reason and logic well - is, I think, shared to some degree by the majority of the regulars here. I dare say that the majority of regulars here recognize that she is...reactionary, and that conversing with her requires many grains of salt.
I'm not going to tell you how to behave Nam. But when I see her complain about other members here - about their behavior - well, I remember the story of the boy who cried wolf. She's bitched and moaned enough about innocuous things for so long that her protestations are nothing but noise
. I, personally, don't see you needing to defend yourself against anything she says. I would guess that the majority of members here will, at the very least, see anything inflammatory from her towards you as 'well, junebug72/Nam slugfest again. Whatever'.
If you feel the need to defend yourself from the 6-year on the playground calling you a stupid-head, go for it. But seriously - why bother?
