Wings that is not a smart outlook to have. You are acting like people don't try suicide after people do stuff like this, well they do. I've known people that did. It only took a few of them but they acted just like you are and they pused that boy over the edge. I don't know what your deal is but I'm ashamed of you. Worst behaviour I ever seen from one vet to another and you should know better.

We have fought, scratched and argued with the best, yet they remain on good terms with us. Statements such as "I have dominated this forum" just doesn't cut it on here. No one likes you or the fact that you believe you are owed top dog status. You need to take a seat now and then and let someone else have the floor. A person might actually converse with you. You really only need yourself to talk to. Apparently you have a complex of sorts that makes you crave that feeling of superiority. If you were honestly that smart you would see yourself as others perceive you. AKA..A smart Alec, KIA bully. Your self praising attitude nullifies your intelligence. Why not just come on down from your high horse and join the real world? It's lonely at the top isn't it?
I think that it can be easily demonstrated that speaking modestly and abstaining from rudeness does absolutely nothing but open one up for more bashing.

It has worked for me. I am not always rude and obnoxious. It is often just more fun.

You saw what happened, did you not? Being nice gets you stepped on. And how interesting that you attempt to abuse me for weeks for having "fun", just to agree that what I was doing was fun and admit to doing the same.

When you dole it out, ya gotta be able to take it. I do this kinda thing for fun with my friends and certain members of my family. So telling me I would not do it to someone's face was an uninformed statement.

If that is the way you took the entire discussion, then that was not the goal. Of course you mess around with friends and family. Almost everyone does. The intent of the discussion was to determine if you would do it to people you don't actually know. I thought that would have been obvious, my apologies for not better describing.

You will never be stepped on, if you choose not to. I've been called everything from a wh*re to someone who needs reconstructive surgery on here. No biggie. It doesn't matter if you are an angel or a devil, people will always hate on you.

The answer is yes. If I came upon what I felt was blatant abuse in some manner or the other, I would step up. Regardless of the consequenses to myself. But I rarely instigate such circumstanses unless I am looking for a fight.

Don't get me wrong, nobody hurt my feelings. But several were clearly bashing me for actually attempting to be nice and promote niceness. So, your last sentence summed it up nicely and is consistent with the position I had that others argued against.

Yes. So, not the same as on here. Understood. That's more along the lines of what I expected. Most decent people (in the real world) will stand up for those being abused and not start swinging over simple opinions, and hopefully you'll see how that is different from both what you have done online and what you've criticized me for doing online.

Remember that I have stated from the beginning that that's how I operated. I'm giving a different approach a shot and we'll see how long other people allow it to last.

To me, this is the same. I was asked to help with a problem poster. If nothing else, you at least now are being civil. But it will take some time for some to take you at your word as you history of aggression has made few friends.

You say that yet you did more swinging at simple opinions than anyone else. That is fact. That swinging is what started the fire. Can you not see that? If not I will guide you back to the beginning.

It takes a while to get over hurt feelings from this place, or from any place that is. My self confidence was actually bolstered by posting on here, because I learned from it.

How long have you been posting? You are sure no feelings were hurt? You sound a little bitter. No I'm not trying to start anything. Is it bitterness from this site and these posts?

Do you realize it was because we knew you were an impersonator? After a while on here you begin to spot certain things. Things that don't allow 1+1 to equal 2.

The "more" is more than debatable, but of course I did. And I said I did. And I said that this isn't the real world to me and I wasn't acting the same as I would there.

No, not too personal, just doing other stuff for a few.
Definitely no feelings were hurt. Bitterness comes from world experience and continually observing the willfully ignorant dragging us all down. And I've been just as bitter from the start.

No, I don't think so. I would have been called out instead of insulted for telling people to be nice, and you wouldn't have partied like it's 1999 once I posted on this account.

Ok. You have both stated where you stood. I have told her to give you a chance to prove you can discuss without being so condescending.

Ok, fair enough. I understand your position on things. I'm just thinking that you'll still find, that more people respond to understanding and compassion, than to cold logic. And no, I make no excuses for any insults thrown your way from others.

Even when you were toning it down, you still based a lot on logic, while most respond to emotion.
