I can only control myself. Like it or not, that is a fact of life.
I have tried a quite a few times to get everyone to stop the nonsense, much along the lines of Susanís post the other day, and the main instigators on both sides seem to be incapable of doing so. So, as I told Sue yesterday, it is a waste of time to even try.
I am also not a part of any gang. I mostly chat with folks on the threads. I rarely get PMs and when I do they usually arenít about this nonsense Ö the very few times I have received any discussing this nonsense, my mantra has been that everyone (including folks who I am friendly with) should just ignore and stay away from folks they donít like.
Seems to me itís just a few folks who donít like each other who keep it going, including yourself. I don't understand what causes folks to let petty disputes consume and control them.
Well said Sublime.

It seems that no-one may post about the ridiculous fighting happening on this forum for fear of being attacked by anyone who may disagree with their viewpoint.

All that can be posted is the most ridiculous banalities because of this. The fact that ADULTS have to pick sides for fear that they will be ostracized if they don't is the height of lunacy, IMNSHO. One can't be friends with everyone, because then one is considered to be friends with no-one. When did juvenile behavior become the norm among adults?

Even saying good morning is fraught just in case one has said good morning to the wrong individual. Posters believe the most ridiculous things about other posters without an iota or shred of proof that the thing is even true. I guess if one posts the same silly thing long enough, eventually folks start to believe it, whether or not it's true.

Posters stalk other posters - for no good reason other than some specious baloney they've made up out of whole cloth - for years! Some folks have so little to do IRL they spend their time picking through threads just to give out judge its, as well as spending the rest of the time reporting posts they don't like. What a total waste of time!

Other posters pick through scraps of information, Googling other posters, hoping to find personal information they can post simply out of revenge for some IMAGINED slight. "Nice" behavior for adults. And worst of all, the offenders don't seem even to realize that they're doing this and insist it's all everyone else's fault. Or even more insulting to anyone's intelligence, that they have NO choice in the matter.

And the jumping to conclusions on Topix is absolutely rampant. Sad that a venue that could do so much good is mainly used to sling nasty verbiage at others."

Actually, I think you hit the nail on the head with your post the other day. They just don't like it that some of us get along with Kevin and Perse. Itís the friend of my enemy is my enemy too, dynamic.
Someone just posted that EXACT nonsense on the AofJ thread. She welcomed a new poster simply because said poster likes one of her friends, therefore, new poster MUST be okay. What the heck! Why can't we simply like everyone until they prove that they're not likable.

Iím not surprised at all. She is a blind follower, and I suspect she is bipolar and unmedicated.

She must have some serious problems , especially if she also has an interlock device on her car. From reading the comments , he filed for divorce and a restraining order.!!

I think that goes to bad parenting. Somewhere in her life she pulled that kind of crap and got her way.
That's the only explanation for her to just keep on going on like that, or anti-psychotic drugs run amok.

My point is that juvenile behavior is rampant on Topix no matter where one posts. I have no idea about the poster I referenced, I've always liked her and her not liking me is certainly her prerogative.

I had a similar experience today on one of my other forums. Simply astonishing that some folks behave as if they are still in middle school.

Makes me wonder if folks who behave like that teach their children to act like that IRL as well. No wonder bullying is epidemic.

You're probably right. Such unattractive behavior!

Actually, We are talking about two separate things. I was talking about all the names that were posted today. I didn't report those. As far as her post being pulled

I totally agree with this as well, great post!

Like some others, I'm here for banter, and this ludicrous behavior across Topix is becoming tiresome on so many levels. I'm not here to waste time swimming through the bullshyte every day but I have no choice. I didn't start this shyte, why subject everyone to this childish shyte?!

How much is enough?
