    Some Things Some People Need To Hear

    ImaginaryIllusion, you suggest looking in the mirror to others. Perhaps you should practice that little nugget. This is utterly irrelevant. The volume of expressed agreement in relation to expressed disagreement does not lend validity to anything, whether that be a person or his point of view...

    Old School BBS's

    I find this compelling. It is beyond me why it is such a frequent occurrence for some to cry out "you're attacking me" and/or "you're judging me" when no personal references were made.

    Some Things Some People Need To Hear

    You often take this route when called on your own negativity. In this instance, your blatant divisive point that only some members who left were "good." You even took the extra effort to italicize and underline. When asked to clarify, no response. It's bullshit. Now you take care :) ~Raven~

    Some Things Some People Need To Hear

    That leads to a rather circular discussion involving subjectivity. The term is "double standard." And when it comes to subjectivity, the playing field is the property of the moderators here. This includes the belief that some forms of insulting someone are better than other forms. Snideness...
