Heh
Although this is kinda what I meant earlier when some things simply aren't going to stop on their own
I literally NEVER post to Catcher first unless he is insulting someone. I never butt into a civil exchange he is in to insult someone. Yet he will post to me constantly unsolicited to fight and then cry afterwards. I honestly can't follow the logic. Does he just want my attention?
But him, Aura, and a few others just day after day after day keep starting it with people. Most of the time they have to find a civil conversation to disrupt because lately there have not been enough confrontations for them just to show up and bandwagon
Most people don't have unlimited patience or even anything resembling it. Yet people have shown they are willing the ignore the same people that came here to troll if they simply stop starting fights.
I offered a peace with Catcher if he would just agree to stop slandering RR..and he refused!!
You saw what he tried to do when Ians and I made peace
Some people don't want peace. And the best most can do is try to have peace with the people that do. And for the ones that refuse eventually they got to be dealt with because it has been a year, they aren't going anywhere It just is what Topix is I guess
It's unfortunate though

Hi Stevie - how's it been?
I love ya guy, but ya got - and can agree with your premise about some posters - but my asking Deb about "..being impressed about lately.." had nothing to do with this thread. Something on a personal note. But hey, I dusted the 'box' off for ya :)
Hope yer night is well...
LOL

Dang it!

Sorry about that! I just have been impressed with some of the exchanges in the last 3-4 weeks and didn't want any regulars that may have just washed their hands of this place to think there is nothing good going on here

Anyway, glad it wasn't that then. Hopefully you have had a chance to catch one or two anyway. Although they are starting to get further spaced out again

Things are going well personally. Hope all is well with you

(T)Peace

Yeah that is all I was trying to say too

That there has been some good stuff

I am not claiming one side perfect or anything but some people are trying to go in a better direction while some are intent on dragging it down

Anyway, getting late and gonna start packing it in

Have a good night friend

@ Steve,

Well let's see, it CAN be done- having a "civilised thread for good conversation" - mainly on the local forums. But again, hardcore nefarious trolls would want to comb the life out of them to find someone, especially if the 'someone' was a whipping boy or radioactive to a group on a thread and happen to up and leave one day(and thereby their 'fun'). I had seen it happen to a woman who was followed and browbeat from thread to thread after several attempts to dodge trolls.

Again, as posted many times before , for some the anonymity of such a venue is too great a temptation to adhere to conventions of civility. The "Inner Beast" comes forth - the "Id" , if you will- and it's 'satisfaction',at any cost.

I hear ya

And the thing is, some stuff isn't so bad. There can be some almost "rivalry" stuff that goes on from time to time that I think people would be lying if they said they didn't enjoy it.

But for that to be all there is? I don't get how people can be sustained on something so shallow. And once they want to turn it real nasty like accuse someone of abusing their children or their wife, now it isn't just for fun any more. And you go to these people and try to at least agree to keep that kind of stuff out. For everyone to agree to scale things way back. And they refuse. They love it. The more confrontational the better

The good exchanges bore the heck outta them. And they think people wanting to have them means they are afraid to confront them. Its unreal. Dealing with them is easy. It is just so monotonous and pointless after a while.

But you are right its the anonymity. Real life simply would never allow for it. It would be great if for the most part this place was a place people could come to in order to enjoy regular stuff. And if the occasional stuff happens, well nobody is made outta glass. But I guess what surprises me isn't that anonymity allows for some of this, but rather the ones that exploit it never tire of it. I mean just never.

I like places like FB but hard to have a conversation it like 50 characters that you can't create paragraphs with and then wait 6 hours for a reply. Oh well, it is what it is. Good 'ol Topix!

(T) Peace

The Bible was written by God through man. But you already knew what I would say. The evidence is in the book RT. The history was written down by God through man in a book, The Bible, the word of God. It’s OK with me that Jesus was not gay but was the perfect Son Of God. There are a lot of things that we do that we should strive not to do that Jesus did not do and that is OK with me too that Jesus didn’t do them. But what we are OK with or not Ok with does not change what the Bible, The word of God, says.
Why would you believe the other history books but not the Bible? We did not see Abraham Lincoln, or a lot of the other famous presidents and people but we believe they were. Why not Jesus and God? Do we pick and choose those we like and leave out those we don’t agree with or don’t like what they stand for and say they did not exist even though those that saw then wrote about them? Lets see, I think I’ll just pick out a few of them that I’m not all that crazy about or don’t agree with and decide they didn’t exist. That will solve the problem. They didn’t say that or do that because they didn’t exist. Man, that was easy. Now let me pick out some more…
It just doesn’t work like that RT. God/ Jesus is real. Nothing can change that. Not you and not me, not anyone or anything.
You can agree or disagree but I stand by what I said. Jesus is the Son of God and did and does exist.
I'm talking about the other gospels and texts from the time that were left out of the Bible because the priests and popes and scribes found them somewhat, how should we say, heretic? You let men decide what you should believe because that's what they wanted you to believe. I find that arrogant on their part and weak on the part of those who accept it.

But that's just me.

Do you believe that any authors of the New Testament ever met the man they call Jesus?

Okay 3 things.
1. Jesus loves you
2. I love you too
3. Please take your medication
LOL-- He loveeeeees me HE LOOOOVES ME!

I ain't got no medication~ I do have zeal~(sometimes)

I have a habit of latching on to some people here at topix... people that I feel I can "SEE". You are one of those people - don't wanna scare you... but when I feel like I can "see" someone... it's because I feel the REAL person who is posting- and see past the dialogue which gets put here in the thread. I see the potential if the person would "just be" - I see who they can grow into being- You have a care givers heart- but with a boxer's technique- You want law and order --- even if you have to tear down an orphange and make the kids live on the street-to make your point. But as our dear friend ( who is no longer on this planet) Bart used to say : " YOU were prayed here."- Please consider that you may have been 'led' here- so that you could learn- and also teach us.

That was an epic saga in and of itself.
!!!!! HOW many times did they use YOUR head as a toilet bowl scrubber?

Did you ever get to lay your head on a pillow that was NOT filled with your brothers GAS ?

Did you ever get to eat a piece of chicken that was NOT The back,neck or wing?

Did you ever tell your dad "I did it"--- in order to protect a sibling from punishment?

and think that THAT was a good idea--- because you didn't think DAD would punish you as harshly>>

BUT he DID?

Yeah- me too
