SSA it was good of you to delete your original post to me. I will prefer seeing it as a strong reaction of a passionate person than a hutfull one.
If I insulted you, I am very sorry it wasn't among my intentions but at some point we need to realise that this is getting more and more pointless.

WT .... I'd answer if I could.

It was deleted!

I'll PM it to you. It was quite good. []

Rebel Thug - thank you.

Arien - yes, you're right of course. The Pointless Forest, so to speak. I'll try to stay on shore from now on.

So you have to resort to calling names? I see. A perfect example of what Belegurth means when he says this:

WT, nevermind. Some members do not like to answer serious, specified question and just rely on the old "you don't get my point, imbocile"-tactics, which makes them superior to you. To be precise, it's a superiority on the internet, so you should really be impressed.

This is quite funny really. Unlike you WT, I don't live and breath this place 24/7, so when I leave work, chances are I will not see your post or PM until I get back to work, and only then if I have the time to get on the internet, and only then if I decide to visit Minas Tirith. Then, I have to decide if I wish to even bother with the effort of replying to you [] . You should get out more. There is a big world out there. []

The point was simple... that you like to mention SSA alot in your posts and your carrying on here so. Thats it. []

Definitely! Because, you know, by claiming someone who has a high-qualified job and leads a fulfilled life (from what I gather) is an internet addict makes you win a debate.

Maybe we can turn this into a TV-debate-duel kind of thing. We'll have two debators, and in the end, the one with the most baseless accusations will have the last laugh - just as always []

I was thinking along the lines of the debates held in preparation for the Presidential election []

As for the topic at hand - of course there are people here who don't like each other. I dislike a handful of people here as well, because they are (from my perspective) either unnerving, idiots or hold political views with which I strongly disagree (to an extent that it becomes a hard to personally like them, but that always mixes with other factors). Now, I don't see what is wrong with WT quoting SSA's posts (which he does, but what's the point?) - I'll give you that it is pretty obvious the two aren't in love, but I do not recall WT insulting SSA in an unacceptable manner (if at all, I recall comments the other way round which lacked politeness), and after all, it's an internet message board [] . It's just not worth the attention, really: Deal with it. If someone dislikes you (maybe for good, maybe for not so good reasons, I'm not judging that here), don't carry it home with you to cry about a stranger who may or may not have called you names in a virtual space. If things get out of control, there is WGW to handle the situation. I don't think it's anywhere near that. If MT's so bad for your mental health (I say that without wanting anyone to leave), you better leave for a while to regain some self esteem. Sheesh.

What it comes down to is this: especially in this case, attacks do not come out of nowhere. If you can't deal with fire, you probably shouldn't play with it.

Oh, Elbenfürst, king of a bunch of bread-that-is-covered-by-leaves-eaters (which goes against all regulations regarding the prevention of food poisoning, you anarchist!), you are not worth the fiery spit that I spew out while talking to you because I don't have my mouth and tongue under control... where was I?... anyway, your nation is doomed to decay, and your heritage, Oh Imbocile, will be turned into an exhibition in a museum... in an Orc museum! Haha! How's that for a humiliation?

Belly - Your post was so contradictory, it borders on insanity. You talk as if the board means nothing, yet you just admitted to disliking people who disagree with your political beliefs. You speak of WT's picking on SSA as if it's nothing, but you're not in SSA's shoes. You pounce on Snowdog for claiming to have a full life and not be bothered by message boards, yet you do the same. Face it, things matter here or you wouldn't be posting in this thread right now butting in on business that isn't yours. I didn't want to get into this, but you had to go and elaborate further on your original post. What it boils down to is that you're on WT's side, and it shows. Snowdog's on SSA's side, and it shows. This place is full of cliques, and you're in one wheter you like it or not. Just leave SSA alone. Let her be. This is, after all, just another message board.

Oh, and just for your info, I do like you, no matter what your political beliefs, or whether or not you like me. I like just about everybody on here except for The Witch-King of Angmar. He's just too damn superior and obnoxious. Hey it's just a message board, so you might as well let it be known who you like or don't like. Right?

Gotta go now. My son is playing baseball, and I'm going to cheer him on. Take care!

All right, first off, though I do not like your opinions most of the time, I like you as a person, Snowy.

quote:
You talk as if the board means nothing, yet you just admitted to disliking people who disagree with your political beliefs
Clarification: I like some people here so much that I deeply care about them - however, as for the persons I dislike, I mean to say that I don't take my issues with them out in my real life, it doesn't affect me what one poster says here. Something negative that happens here doesn't really harm me. When something positive happens, as gaining experience, finding funny things and interesting people, I try to benefit from it and to let others benefit from me, that goes to friendship. That's what's so great about the internet: accept the positive sides, and laugh about the people who are trying to insult you. Remember, most users on the internet will die at the age of 40 because they lack of sports and healthy nutrition []

quote:
You speak of WT's picking on SSA as if it's nothing, but you're not in SSA's shoes
All I'm saying is that she's not innocent here. Some comments by her about lawyers - in which she implied she thought about WT, thinly disguised - have been pretty obscure, to put it mildly. As I said, if you can't deal with a person, put him on the ignore list or something. Don't take problems from here to your real life - gather the positive sides, and log off when things begin to unnerve you (which doesn't mean you shouldn't debate and argue, but... before it emotionally hurts you, take a week off).

quote:
You pounce on Snowdog for claiming to have a full life and not be bothered by message boards, yet you do the same
I didn't do that. I criticized him for claiming WT has no life, which is a complete no-brainer argument.

This place is full of cliques, and you're in one wheter you like it or not. Just leave SSA alone. Let her be. This is, after all, just another message board.
As I said, I don't want anyone to leave, including SSA. I may not agree with her on many things, and we probably wouldn't have much to do with each other in real life, but I certainly don't hate her. I'm just saying that it appears to me as if she's exaggerating things when it suits her, and that's not ok in my eyes. And if it really hurts her as much as she claims, she should - and I mean that in a friendly sense - take a break from MT, especially as she obviously has other places to post at that she loves to go to. Honestly, when you shed a tear about someone who has disliked you for a long time, who is someone you'll never meet, turn the computer off and do something else for a while! It's important, not as much for the community (fights are entertaining), but for yourself.

Admitted, it can be hard - and of course, I can't expect anyone to refrain from posting in areas where there may be people who are eager to criticize yourself (if that's your imagination or reality is of no account here). So post, be respectful, and bystanders will draw their own conclusions. It doesn't help to jump at each other throats, least of all will it benefit yourself.

Also, you're quite correct to say that it matters enough for me to type these sentences - I do it because I love to argue and debate.

quote:
Hey it's just a message board, so you might as well let it be known who you like or don't like
Oh, the people I don't like can certainly figure that out by themselves. It's not like I'm overly concerned for their emotions []

Good night!

I only commented on WTs name calling of me for not replying to him when he

A. posts after I have left work, and
B. posts again saying I had no answer for him before I got back here. [end] Sometimes things are quite simple, but yet some take things and run with it as far as they wish to. Nowhere do I, or did I say that WT has no life.

One thing I like about this place is all the folks who keep a hand on the ladle (me included) []
