Actually, I find your post rather nice and I appreciate you explaining things, some haven't done that and others have a need to make more of it......frankly, I know people who have done business with that poster and have had no issues, but then again......that might mean nothing or it might mean something.<quoted text>
It has been a long strange trip within cyberspace for me. I have been reading topix locally for a number of years and decided to join only recently. As a forum owner and editor of a local news source I try to gather information from a very wide variety of sources. And since my ownership of this news source is strictly self-supporting I have to think outside of the box when it comes to gathering information. So that is how I came to join topic locally.
One of the things I do as a editor is read, and in reading and searching topix I eventually ran across a ghost from the past; a very bad ghost that takes the screen name of the person you mention above. I'll not bore you with the details but suffice to say that due to my experiences with this individual I felt it prudent to see what they were up to.
And I agree with your statement that it is a public forum and membership is open to everyone, and I take that to heart. It is how I run my own forum. And it is within that vein that I posted something to that person just as a means to let her know I am aware of what she is doing. Nothing more than that was intended other than perhaps a little something to warn others of her games and tricks. But apparently that is not something you feel is necessary or even desired by the thousands of members of topix. And if so than so be it, I shall leave the field to you and your fellow members to do with as you please, and revert back to reading things that interest me.
Is it then permissible for one to interject an occasional question or two, just for clarification sake?
This quote by you is something that bothers me, "But apparently that is not something you feel is necessary or even desired by the thousands of members of topix". I don't truly believe that is what I said or implied, but let's face it.......just because some have an issue with a particular poster, doesn't mean all will.......and I don't know what transpired between you and that poster, or what happen between that poster and others, but I do know this much......whatever is the issue, it is on like 5 different forums and in several different threads......it affects posters in the Welch forum, Delano forum, Christian forum, topix forum and probably some I don't even know about........and it seems to be something that continues to grow and include folks who might not even know all that is going on........I know that this issue or mess as caused people to want to leave topix because they are tired of stepping in it........like I said, I don't have a bone or stake in this issue and I don't know what started it......I have been on topix for awhile now and I know that the he said, she said, they said, we said game is never ending......it is just my opinion that all parties need to find some resolution, if possible.
I'm not perfect and have my own issues with some, but over the years I have tried different approaches to resolve the issue, but I finally realized that it can NEVER truly be resolved......so, I try not to engage those who I have a history with.....not saying it works, but I try.
Anyways, thanks for the conversation and hopefully we can chat again!!!
