Hey all,
I am just wondering why it appears that most of the people on this site hide behind a stupid screenname and then spew hate? Why not post your real name and then state your opinion. And most of the B.S. that people post, is exactly that, B.S. I mean, come on people, our junior high days are over.

I actually think that Kevin Arnold said some of the most intelligent words I have read on here. People on topix or any other 'secret' forum are prone to say all the negative things about others that they won't say in person. That would be OK too, if we all just made sure we had our facts straight before we posted rather than relying on rumors and lies to ruin someones reputation.

I beg to differ with you.Arnold never stated any 'intelligent true words'.He just gave his opinion like everyone else. And no one can really ruin someone elses reputation,it's not theirs to ruin.Each person is responsible for their own.I'm just stating the facts.

Yes, I figured I would get the whole Wonder Years reaction. I have gotten that same reaction for the past 24 years.
And I am not trying to ruffle anyones tail feathers, I am just trying to seriously understand why the majority of people on here.
I mean, this forum is mainly used by people to trash talk other people. And to "Sweet T", I lived in Elizabethton for 24 years, and in that time, I learned that people in that town do take Rumors for Truth. Which is sad. Open your eyes, open your hears, and open your minds.

Hey,you don't have anything on me!Ive lived here my whole life---all fifty yrs.[I don't mind telling my age.]And yes you are trying to "ruffle feathers"I'm not trying to hide "behind some stupid screen name,spew hate and start rumors".My first name is Teresa, my friends think I'm sweet;hence the screen name Sweet T.I don't use my full because I have a responsibility to protect the ones I love,i.e.my wonderful husband of 24 yrs and my 4 adopted children,in case,God forbid,some Creggs list whack job doesn't like my posts.I never said people don't take rumors for truth,but there is usually some truth in all rumors.Ive managed to hold on to my reputation for 50 yrs. without it being "ruined".Have there been rumors been started about me? YES.Did they hold up? NO. I stand by what I said---Ones reputation can only be ruined by ones own self! Like my granny used to say,"THE TRUTH WILL STAND WHEN THE WORLDS ON FIRE!!" Kevin,I've read your posts.I'm sure there were rumors started about you.Was there no truth to them?[Not dissing,Just discussing...]

Well here is a stupid question. Why do people do it? They do it to gossip. That is what people enjoy doing especially when they can do it anonymously. You do it too so why don't you sit and analyze yourself? I'm sure that if you were to sit and muster up all the common sense you have in your brain you could have figured out the answer to this question. People gossip and this is an easy route to which they can achieve that satisfaction. I, personally, just like to read and laugh. I hope that maybe you can muster up enough brain power to think through a question before you ask it next time.

Good answer. I agree with everything you said.
We need more common sense on this board.
