My bad BF I apologize.

It started because I suggested that posters read his threads before taking his advice. I stand by that statement. They should read my threads before taking my advice. I think my point has been made with him running to the mods. As for why he feels he's in danger by my "snitches get stiches" comment I am not sure. He changes his name for anonymity purposes so I have no idea about his true identity. Unless I walked up on a dude having his first date on a picnic blanket in the middle of the forest eating freshly made raspberry tarts with rosemary cinnamon buns, I would have no idea who he is in real life.

Anywho I promise no more "bullying" walk away spouses on here for me.

DNJ, Job sorry I am making your volunteering more difficult. I'll be better.

LH,

People can post wherever they want on the forum. We have had posters state that they are leaving and yet, they are still here posting. We have posters that leave for a while and return at a later date.

Did you not read what we have posted to you about the behavior? If you continue down that path, you will leave the moderators no choice but to request that you be put on moderation and if that doesn't work, banning will be next. This is your last chance.

Don't apologize to me or DNJ. You owe the forum an apology because people are reading your postings and making decisions as to whether to stay or go. It's difficult enough in the real world to deal with bullying but we don't need to have it on here. Go back and read the board policies and you will see that one of the bullets is to be respectful to others.


Sit quietly, the answers will reveal themselves when you least expect them to.
The past is gone, the present is a gift and you need to focus on today, allow the future to reveal itself when it is ready.

Traveler,

We are very well aware of the situation with you and LH. We have been monitoring his postings, as well as yours, for quite some time and will take the necessary action if the behavior continues.

I would ask that you continue to ignore his postings. I know you don't like his postings and the more you react to them and that includes notifying the moderators, the more challenging it is for that behavior to continue. The less you react, the better off you will be. Then again, the way you post, at times, causes others to react in a negative manner. Go back read some of your postings. You are not a saint either.

If you can't control you reaction to what others post in response to you, then maybe it's time to step away from the Board for a while. Allow things to cool down for a bit. Keep your side of the street clean and others will do the same for their side of the street.

In my opinion, both of you owe the forum an apology for creating so much drama. That drama takes away from what we are suppose to be doing, i.e., being supportive, listening and guiding. We are not suppose to be sitting on the sidelines watching the two of you go at each other.

If the situation continues, DNJ and I will be making some decisions as to what to do concerning the both of you. We do not want to ban posters, but in rare cases it is necessary to keep peace on this Board.

Job with all due respect the Webster dictionary defines bullying as seek to harm, intimidate, or coerce (someone perceived as vulnerable).
If anything he was bullying R2C because he was trying to coerce posters into not reading R2C's recommended books.

I guess do what you need to do and ban me if you feel it's necessary.

This sounds like a contradiction.

LH,

Unlike others, I am not going to sit here and argue with you about the definition of bullying.

And no, it is not a contradiction as people can post on any forum that they want.

I agree with job.

The philosophy and underlying principles of this board is to be more including rather than excluding. People are welcome to read, post, and have a thread where they feel comfortable. The guiding principles of the forum are reasonable and clearly stated. Everyone who comes here is to be treated with courtesy and respect.

It is normal and fine to not agree with someone. Be respectful when interacting. Or you can just move to the next thread or post, and say nothing. You control you!

Feelings are fleeting.
Be better, not bitter.
Love the person, forgive the sin.

I don't typically go against the grain of the boards....

However, I don't know if I totally agree with you Job...

In most regards I do. Being respectful and not bullying in the cyber world....

However, Nothing LH said was untrue, and most newer posters do not know the background of the people giving them advice. I feel that during one of the most troubling times in a person's life, they should know who and the background of the person giving the advice.

In most cases, newer posters take our advice at face value, because they are hurting and in emotional pain. Therefore our advice, in all seriousness, could possibly be the difference between someone making it or not as a person, let alone the marriage.

The poster in question has has their threads removed for whatever reasons, so that information isn't available.

One of my favorite lines from the United States Declaration of Independence is....

Quote
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Essentially....anyone that has the ability, holds the responsibility....

And I feel that LH was being responsible and the real issue is the history and agenda between these two. So how do you silence one without silencing both ? (rhetorical here)...

LH, we've had some prolific posters here that have been Walk Aways....

Sandi2, and Smartcookie, and damn,....even Jack3Beans was a WAS....

So please don't discount the potential for some really great insight....

Traveler, maybe "own" your path to getting here. And realize that nobody is out to get you, and not every situation is someone bullying you. You are a WAS, no matter how or why it happened. Try approaching things from that angle. I think things might change for you then.


I also feel that there has been too much time spent on this bickering and that it has taken away from the true essence of this board...

DO WHAT WORKS....
FROM THIS DAY FORWARD..
STOP GOING DOWN CHEESELESS TUNNELS

And this clearly isn't working...

You BOTH have a lot of experience to offer, and it would be a shame to lose that.


We are in this together, we all want to help, and we are all still here for one reason or another. We all take, and we all give for personal reasons.

So maybe we support each other a little better, and realize that we are all trying to help, however it may or may not look to another person.

Just my honest opinion....

Principles before personalties. DB principles before disparate personalities. We are all here for one purpose: to help the newbie. If you can't help, don't hurt. The board is bigger than any individual conflicts, or it should be.

This means BOTH of you, in my opinion, not that anyone asked. The constant running to mods because someone posts something you don't like is not helpful to the board as a whole. Allowing someone to trigger you to the point where you post something you later have to apologize for is not helpful to the board as a whole.

YUP - Unfortunately with the way the forum is set up there is not too much room to do anything else here.

So many functions no longer work the way they used to.

No moderator notifications, no real moderation other than either post or not.

The administrator accepts no nonsense.
