Most people on the offbeat have been nice to me. Some more stand off than others. A few pm from old posters explained the reluctance. Before peoples knew the trolls were they shared to much personal. The trolls abused this information. Si , I found happy people who play the game. They share the props and be nicer to new people. :)

Glad to be of help.
your welcome...
I think that the amount of time spent here, new vs.'old', makes no difference really.
there are just some jerks (like in rw) that enjoy being jerks.

thankfully, the good outnumber the bad.

There's a couple here who need a muzzle, but I've met some nice people here. It's fun, the back-and-forth.

In life, you get what you give.....reap what you sow, etc....

Newbies are unknowns. Time tells if they are good people or simply another made-up name used by a troll.

I treat people the way they deserve to be treated, in my opinion, based on what I have seen them post to others and how they have treated others.

In my opinion, most in here are very nice people....

Welcome newbie!!!

Offbeat isn't much of an improvement. Regardless of what or where you post, you need to develop a little thicker skin. If you show just the slightest bit of vulnerability or emotion, the "hyenas and jackals" will jump you.

Just a friendly bit of advice from the head hyena.

The anonymity of the internet makes some people become truly nasty, it's typically someone that everyone picks on in real life because they're so goofy. So they go on the internet and bully people there, because it's the only place they can act all tough without the possibility of physical repercussions.Pay no attention to the trolls like bounty hunter, and completely ignore the little "Judge it" icons, both are truly meaningless. And always remember-You don't "Owe" any troll an answer about anything.

and what is the matter with the moderators allowing so many bullies to get way with it?
I think part of the problem with defending other posters, new or old, is then you become a target too for "picking sides".

...true enough...i worked for a while in an office populated mostly with women, and i was told LOUDLY AND CLEARLY AND OFTEN if you drink coffee with 'these people', you can't drink coffee with 'those' people....if you eat lunch with 'those' people, you can't eat lunch with 'these' people....i think it is all a crock, but there you go....btw....most of the folks here are pretty adept at defending themselves....

Agreed.

On an alternative side, back when I was a gray box I got picked on by a certain poster for NOT picking sides. I pretty much ignored her. Thankfully she's not bothered me since I've registered. Then again, maybe she hasn't figured out who I was....

Just gotta thicken up that skin and roll with the verbal punches or ignore the offenders completely.

Gotta' agree with Geno on this one - without all the in-fighting and squabbling, people wouldn't visit this forum so often and then the pop ups wouldn't sell as much. Kinda' makes you wonder who starts this crap all the time, huh?

Not that any really care here in this cesspool called Topix, but Silvervixen is an old crazy troll with a drawer full of socks.

The Silvervixen account is just a new account she registered yesterday to hide because her socks and other multiple accounts were being exposed.

She's been doing this for years and has been booted from several forums for it, which is why she ended up on Topix.

Just a heads up to anyone who might care.
