They're likes assholes...everyone has one. blah! Stale, I know. Not sorry.

Anyway, why did I pick this topic? Well, I saw a blog today where there were "pundit" jokes, and someone took offense, then there was name calling. The great thing about opinions is they are our own. No one can make them for us, therefore, we can't blame others when we step on our own toes and make an ass of ourselves. I know I've done that plenty of times. Who hasn't? But, sometimes I wonder....Do we take things on a computer screen so serious that we have to resort to name calling? I've done it, I cannot and will not, deny it. And, chances are, I will do it again. It's human nature to react. Sometimes we react before we think. There was blog done last night where the user said:

Now many of you free members have taken issue with commentary or specific blogs and apparently are upset with the moderators when they don't respond or delete blogs you deem inappropriate. Some of you cry 'BAN' and piss, moan and groan if they don't hasten to accede to your rants. Well isn't that a shame???
Kudos to the AMD site moderators for not promoting the proliferation of the small minds who can't take someone disagreeing with them. Kudos to them allowing free speech, even if you find it objectionable, hell even if it is objectionable. Nobody is forcing you to read them and you sure as hell haven't paid for the right to change the site. Don't like it, BEAT IT! Go watch Oprah.

My first reaction was to tell the author that this comes off as elitist and snobby. You know? Like wtf?? Because you're a paying member that means those of us who have free memberships don't count? But, I got to thinking before I actually "reacted" and posted a question instead. Cause really...what would have been the purpose of "going off the deep end" and attacking for an imaginary slight? Like I said, we all have opinions, and they are unique in that they are our opinions alone. How we share them, that is also on us to own up to. We can come off as antagonistic, holler, scream, call names, OR, we can act like mature adults, and respond calmly. In the above pundit blog, when the author got "yelled" at...that author basically told the one doing the yelling they very well could have came back with their own joke rather than make themselves look foolish with that outburst. And, might I add, the one who had the outburst, usually tends to be more intelligent in their postings.

So, when we read a blog that we don't agree with, instead of that knee jerk reaction of "fuck you"...maybe we should stop, take a moment...then let it fly. Not trying to tell anyone what to do...just offering a suggestion to keep things on a more friendly, enjoyable run rather than all the of late.

Ok, I'm done. Now I've got to go find some stale reruns to drive someone crazy with.


Note. This blog in NO WAY has anything to do with the "troll". It is purely about OPINIONS, nothing more. I quoted a part of another blog to make a point.

I am just going to say that I don't need to say anything further as you said it quite well. I will will slip you a greenie that will be misconstrued as being self serving, but I am used to that and have no control over other people's feelings and thoughts, nor should I.

Point of clarification sugar, and quite possibly I'm misreading the above, correct me if I'm wrong. After the comment F*** YOU posted to me on my blog, I didn't respond at all to the 'outburst', nor will I reply to any vulgarity. It's a "crutch" used by those with limited language skills. If I follow you, you're either saying she's more intelligent, or normally, more intelligent?

I am not intending to stir the pot, or accelerate escalation, but I whimsically ask if you are suggesting that I tell someone "to engage in an act of self inflicted fornication" instead of telling them to "go fuck yourself"?

Totally rhetorical, albeit. But the point remains that regardless of how many arrows we have in the quiver of our vocabulary, one writes for their reader in language that they understand.

sugar,

Thank you for your response via email. I respect your efforts at remaining 'in the middle of the road'. In regards to the individual who is not nameless on my blog I just received her email with more vulgarity, then telling me she has blocked me....lol. Is that like 'tag, you're it, but now I'm on base'....lol. I should thank her for proving my point....*S*

Ok, I'm going to try to clarify before there is anymore confusion:

The first quote from my blog, that I used as an example of why I shouldn't fly off the handle, came from a blog posted last night.


This portion here:

In the above pundit blog, when the author got "yelled" at...that author basically told the one doing the yelling they very well could have came back with their own joke rather than make themselves look foolish with that outburst. And, might I add, the one who had the outburst, usually tends to be more intelligent in their postings.

is in reference to a blog posted earlier today, and has nothing to do with the blog from last night.

What I find truly ironic is the fact that penis patrol is still here in your minds thoughts and blogs. He is "winning" and getting exactly what he wanted. Sure I wanted to get my hands on his ignorant ass, but hey its the net. But here we are days after his last attack and still talking about it. He is gone for now, yet some still choose to roll around in troll shit!

How's it not? Your blog is about dr.'S blog which is about that person except now he doesn't have to be involved. We are spatting amongst each other now.

No...the blog is about opinions. I used a quote from dr.'s blog as an example of "think before you speak".

My blog is NOT about the "Unstable One". It merely mentions him as an example of a singular point I was trying to make which you have missed completely. Did you read the blog in its entirety?

Dec 7 @ 5:13PM  
Right, except the portion of the quote you used was referring to troll. No it wasn't said straight out. Don't get me wrong I feel the same as you and I also went off the deep end when confronted with trollboy. And I didn't exactly agree with what dr. Said about freedom of speech , but as you said it is an opinion in an open forum. We need to see that for what it is or the negativity it will continue troll or no troll

And yes DR. I did read your entire blog. Had to wake up a couple times to finish it. But I read it. And it was basically about him. Doesn't matter if you think it was just an example. It was still to do with him. Hell you had "Troll" as the first word in your title.

.

So when you use the word troll it automatically means the "Unstable One"? I'm sorry, I can't help you interpret what you read. As my father often said, "You can buy 'em books and buy 'em books, but you just can't teach them how to read".

You need to go back to your own blog and learn to read it. Why do you think you got a sweet lady to say what she did to you? Seriously ? Oh right cause you are sooooooooo much more intelligent than everybody else! Sorry my dumb red neck ass couldn't see that you are the golden boy. But when your entire blog refers back to the troll which you have even came up with your own nickname. It is about him. You may have twisted it, but you were talking directly about him and the people that wanted him booted. But what do I know right. I'm not the one trying to be a smartass here. Just saying if you said it own it!

I was too tired to read this when it posted, so here I am now. Very interesting. I refuse to name call on this site and in my regular everyday life. It has never been my thing, nor do I respond when someone spots off at me in a mean and vengeful nature. How did I learn to be this way....practice.
