Thanks for your eloquence. Have you considered simply finding more like minded people and posting with them?

So maybe your thread is more exclusive than you let on, given nothing we've said is against the TOS and as has been stated more than once, "no one here cares". It would appear that's not true. Would you happen to know why?
The way people are treated on this thread, many times, is NOT goodhearted. There's also a clear inequity in the way you, yourself, reprimand people for behavior that's clearly NOTHING in comparison to what your "goodhearted" friends frequently post. That's your prerogative, but since you seem to be the person who greets people and addresses concerns, I feel you're the one to talk to. That, and the fact that many other people here who I've yet to have a conversation with have said negative things to me simply based on the fact that I have an opinion different to theirs when it comes to Ferrrerman. I'm tough and I can take guys acting like arseholes and women throwing out catty remarks, but let's be honest: they're not doing so in a good-natured way. Hypocrisy runs rampant here.
I suppose every group eventually falls into that dynamic where they need an 'other' in order to have something with which to compare themselves so that they, as the group, can see themselves as being better people. A whipping boy works well too, and after a few years the negative behavior becomes the norm, so much so that a reasonable person like yourself is willing to look the other way in the name of "goodhearted" friendship with the group. I think that surprises me more than anything I've read here, although the willingness to stay open to someone like Annabella comes close. I guess some people have to be burned twice before they realize they shouldn't touch the stove.
<quoted text> I'm not sure what people here want to talk about because politics are discussed by some, but when others do so they're told "NO POLITICS!". Jokes are welcome......but only when some people tell them. I've seen some very funny posts greeted by personal attacks.
PEllen, if it happened infrequently your advice might not seem so off the mark, but it happens all the time. It's the norm for this group.
So I guess it's up to the person who's consistently being treated like sh!t here to change THEIR behavior? Or they should laugh it off. Or not react. God forbid this group, or at least some of you, actually start behaving the way you would if you were truly the people you claim to be. I see people here I might like to have a conversation with, but what's the price for doing so?

It's funny--driving home I thought how nice it was to have a group of people NOT attached to their cells. I don't even think anyone set their cell on the table by the plate. I hate that. It's so rude. No one was rude.

But... You dont seem to be garnering their interest for conversation. I am not unwelcoming, rather YOU seem to relish is being disagreeable.

Here's a thought...
How about you start your very own thread called "Why is furryman so maligned?" Then all these nice chitown folk who want to join you can? Then you dont have to worry about preconceived notions and false bias cluttering up the thread. The only people who will post are folk who actually give a crap.

Oh, wait.... Yeah, there will only ever be two posters huh?

Life is a helluva lot more pleasant if your bias is positive and if you don't take yourself too seriously. A sense of humor helps as well as the ability to shrug things off and move on to the next thing.
You should try it sometime, just for sh*ts and giggles
I've been thinking of developing a sense of humor. I've heard good things about sarcasm and might give that a try!

It looks like racist is circling THE wagon to defend the AmyAbbyville settlers. He's too thick-headed to see we're not trying to win hearts and minds here anymore than he can speak for all the 'townsfolk'. Of course racist and Sub want *Annabella* to come back- they never left her side! racist is taking you and I quite personally here. I got a feeling that someone put him up to it!

Just trying to be helpful, now its your turn and actually employ some of our goodhearted suggestions. Unless its all a ruse you are using just to bring attention to yourself.
