No need to apologize for it.
In all honesty, Dorothy, you're a prime candidate for anger counseling & therapy. It's sad really.
You leveled an obvious mean-spirited insult at me, then you altered reality by using the euphemism “observation and opinion”.
I totally get where you’re coming from now. It is as I suspected.
It’s too bad that you’re so butt-hurt from being censored to the point where you cannot even coherently discuss the matter, all you can do is hurl insults much like a child who’s been reprimanded. Maybe if you wouldn’t push the envelope so much you would not do things that get you banned from mbs. But like a child, you love being the center of attention, I guess. That’s quite obvious to me. That’s my “observation and opinion”. I hope you can afford me the same “free speech” rights which you seem to enjoy so much.
And Smurf, I hope you will not continue to misrepresent my sarcasm as anger.
So all I can say to you is, at least try and be adult enough to stay within the rules set for this board:
This message board has very simple rules:
You are to behave polite and friendly here (just adding a lot of smilies is not enough). Use netiquette.
When writing your messages, please use the same courtesy that you would show when speaking face-to-face with someone.
Flames, insults, and personal attacks will not be tolerated. It's fine to disagree strongly with opinions, ideas, and facts, but always with respect for the other person. Great minds do not always think alike.
Don't publish private messages without approval from all involved.
We promote one of the most difficult "martial arts": BYT - Bite Your Tongue. It is easy to snap back at someone, but much more effective to rise above them.
If what you have to say is not constructive and positive, then there are many other places on the 'Net for you to post it. Or you BYT.
Smurf, I never worked for OSA like you did so I never got to practice the Art of How To Dead Agent someone. I hope that some day you will realize that all the tricks you learned from your extensive OSA work are unacceptable in any context, no matter which side you are on: which brings us back full circle to what happened on this thread. Going after Scilon handlers’ family members was too close to the practice of Fair Game. I guess you were unable to grasp that point. Which was why I asked you the question: what was it about those family members that you wanted to discuss? How did deleting the pic and your attempt to I.D. those family members infringe upon your right to speak? But unfortunately you couldn’t answer that beyond explaining how you were making a “funny” about their shirts and how the mods have no sense of humor, and so they should not be mods etc., baw baw.
If you really think I am as messed-up, crazy, or whatever (just add latest insult), then perhaps you could apply Andreas’s recommendation in that situation:
It is easy to snap back at someone, but much more effective to rise above them.
and “rise above”. I’m assuming that you want to be effective, beyond being effective at being hurtful towards others.
I'm not trying to hurt you Smurf. I'm trying to get you to take a look at what it is you're doing. You've had plenty of opportunity to explain. Now we'll see if you will continue to defend your right to throw a rock along with your right to not have to offer a coherent explanation for why you need to throw rocks.
