“I didn’t start it!”
Translates into:
“I have been as bad, but the other guy started it first so it’s okay for me to act like him!”

We are never going to change anything with a tit for tat mentality. No matter how you dress it up.

Thoughts?

Shall we keep going with a tit for tat mentality or shall we rise above and say what we need to say, regardless?

To be honest, even my kids know the answer to this.
Fuck me.

I mean really?

“He started it!”

Does anyone else realise how stupid that sounds as an excuse to exchange childish insults?

How do we expect to change the world or the future of our children if we have grown men exchanging childish insults when trying to communicate?

Words fucking fail me.

For those of you that think it’s a winner, a game-changer, or a great way to communicate.
It is not.

I wouldn’t teach a dog to behave in the manner that some of you think is civilised.

Grow up. It’s not clever, or funny, and nor does it win you any points.

It’s just fucking boring.

To be fair, sometimes I start it.

Once I start losing respect for people, I become an asshole. But respect doesn't mean agreeing with me. I am surrounded by people who often don't agree with me, nor me with them. We have each other's back because there is more to life than agreeing on everything.

I know I'm a broken record on this but it's not about your political position. It's about you as a human. People on the receiving end of my vitriol have lost my respect. I dig in and sling shit.

Sorry, not sorry..

It is funny how some people can rub us up the wrong way and bring out the worst in us.
In real life they can often be avoided, if they cant, we can either refuse to let them bother us, or respond to every little irritation and make matters worse.

I do think on forums most of us retaliate sometimes...it's human nature.
It's best if we can keep personal stuff out of arguments though...no matter who started it.

Who are you?

edit...

Korben, I read another thread and see you have left.

That's a shame, I enjoyed posting with you. It didn't cross my mind that this thread was started with you in mind....More for Quill and Maddog. Razz

Forums are not for the faint hearted though, and if you choose to enter into arguments and get rough....it IS a two way street, you give it and you get it back.
If that makes you unhappy, why not stay and keep out of the insult throwing?

I did not know Korben very well but I liked that he was such a polite & gentle darling of a man.

Where did he go?? And why????? “I didn’t start it” 2190311264

Hopefully he will return here some day.

If Korben has vacated the site, that is a huge loss. If anyone has communication with him, please tell him of our concern and urge him to show up. Cool

Why do you think it says "guest" next to all of his posts?

"Guest" ordinarily means the member didn't sign in.

I am still wondering how 'guests' can make posts here.

It means they deleted their account.

They weren't a guest when they made the post.

I learned posting in this format on FF.  There is a page that appears to sign in.  If you do not sign in, and go directly to posting, your post will also appear as 'guest'.

You didn't learn much.

Korben is gone. No user exists by that name.

That's a shame, if true. He was/is a valuable poster, with an instinct for interesting subjects and well-reasoned opinions. We seem to be chasing away people of that sort.

I think he got upset because Eddie seemed to have a go at him.
He was a good poster, as was the other one who left a while ago after Ben outed him as someone else previously (forgot his name)

We need more posters not less.

Eddie pointed out his hypocrisy while he was under the impression that he was being stunning and brave.

Yep, I didn't see it happen because it was late, but if you dish it out you have to expect to get it back.

I did like him though.

He is a busy guy, and has no time for fools.

No. “Guest” is a post who’s account no longer exists - they deleted their account. Jeez Quill, how long have you been posting here?

Nah, he got butthurt by Eddie.  

The thread wasn’t aimed at one single person, but at the childish tit-for-ta-spats between some people.

Eddie's in no way trying to become the forum enforcer; I don't see any evidence of that at all.

If something that's happened on here prompts a thought, what's wrong with starting a thread inspired by it? Has it gotten to the point where not only can we not single out members in a thread, we can't even start threads that might apply to some members?

Because this isn't the only time someone's gotten butthurt over a generic thread that they chose to take personally.

Fuck me ...

No. “Guest” is a post who’s account no longer exists - they deleted their account. Jeez Quill, how long have you been posting here?

It's not only here. Forumotion has lots of sites, many big one's--bigger than Newsfix--where 'Guest' is simply one who hasn't signed in.

I know how Forumotion works. But, management doesn't share a look at the masterboard, so I don't know how any given site works. But you knew that, didn't you Red?
