    This thread is STILL going?

    Maybe if BD doesn't like the current set up, he can just move along to another forum. Most people don't have any real issues with the way things are now, so why change them for one person? Here's a PRO tip for the interwebz: If you don't like a site, don't visit it. If you don't like what someone is saying, (and can't stand that others don't think the way you do), ignore them, or don't visit the site. If you feel you MUST visit the site, despite all that may or may not be wrong with it, then stop exfoliating and grow some thicker skin. Otherwise, sit back, relax, and enjoy discussions with different points of views.

(including the one in real life). Regardless of severity, if there is a pattern identified, true or not, it sticks.


    If anyone watches the presidential (or any electoral) race, you will see this done constantly. What you say, what you do, is how you present yourself. It could be seconds ago, months ago, years ago. If someone remembers it, and it is even tangentially related to the situation, it will come up. Thats why people look back to college histories on Presidents etc. Something that is decades old is brought up and used for or against them.

    This is not to say there can not be atonement or reconciliation. It just says that past actions, and more specifically the length, severity, and number of times, can make those much more difficult.
    Right, and a bit ironic to acuse me of having a problem with her when she's constantly bringing old stuff up don't you think?

    It's not that old, and I even specifically asked why you had a problem with me since you've been back. Sure we've disagreed (a lot) in the past, but since you've been back you're he|| bent on putting words in my mouth and twisting stuff around. That's never happened before, hence why I asked why you seem to have a problem with me now.

    Different points of view are different points of view but what do you call it when somebody is publicly ridiculed for holding a different point of view?

    I can see both sides. I can see where you have jumped to conclusions on her posts, and I can see where she has become frustrated at yours (perhaps a bit quicker because of fairly recent history) and brought up the past in those posts. While she needs to be mindful of that, you also have a part in all of this. Neither side is innocent, and neither is guilty. This thread is (when on topic) about past actions. I refer to what I said that you quoted, past actions WILL be brought up, you had to have expected that given the initial topic.


    Let me add, I dont know what recent activities to which she is referring, and honestly it doesnt matter to me. I am here to speak my mind, and enjoy the forums and help people where and when I can.

    In my view you're describing your behavior towards me, ever since I came back, not waisting an oportunety to engage and challenge me to an unwanted argument.

    Edit, if you would count how many times you comented on my posts since I came back and whow many times I comented on your posts you might agree with my point of view.

    The nature of passive aggressive is that it is anger is demonstrated in a passive way like being silent where interaction is wanted.

    So everyone use the Ignore feature and continue to ignore quotes of persons you are ignoring. Take your own advise.

    I have no one on ignore and plan to keep it that way since some I might choose to ignore also have helped or have good post at times. Maybe I should as sometimes I just can't restrain myself lol.

    We could always go ad naseum with that. Start with ignoring one person. Ignore anyone that quotes that person. Then ignore anyone that quotes the person you ignored for quoting the first person you ignored, etc. Pretty soon you will run out of posts to view lol

    Consider the content of your posts and your bizarre claims, though. If you look through your post history since coming back, you can see where you are playing nice for awhile and then there's a sharp turn to antagonizing. And I never put words in your mouth or tried to twist things.

    This. I don't like labeling people. If I start ignoring people I don't agree with, I think are trolls, etc then I certainly might miss a genuine nugget of wisdom that proves to be very helpful, thought provoking, etc.

    Alright, I can see only three ways to resolve this.


    First - Bare knuckle boxing match
    Second - Both of you get locked into a room with significant amounts of booze until you get along
    Third - Both apologize, and move on

    LOL I'm not saying ignore the person that quoted them but to ignore the quoted post unless you think people can't restrain themselves.

    The recent activities Pantless is referencing were from last week. A thread regarding BB vs. the competition. Or some such title.

    In that thread there were several statements made that resulted in my decision to use the Ignore functionality. The statements that were made included things such as referring to using several phones as having "first world problems", having "single child syndrome", lacking loyalty to RIM, correlating Android devices to women of large size, etc.

    I found the statements so distasteful that, coupled with other discussions in other threads, I decided to use the Ignore functionality.

    These events happened over the course of the last couple of weeks.
