    I don't have logs so I can't. You're right in saying that I'm going by memory. If it is indeed the case that you've stopped doing this, then yeah, my bad, sorry.

    As stated before, most of the time, I just talk to myself, and do not disrupt your conversations.
    Um.

    Okay. This is an innocent question and I'm not trying to belittle you in any way. Why are you using a public form of communication to talk to yourself? If you don't want people to share their opinions on something you're saying in a public place, perhaps it's not the right place to do it. When you get talking to yourself in main chat, it's hard not to notice or respond. I try to refrain from responding because I usually don't have anything complimentary or constructive to say, but it's not easy. It's unreasonable to expect people not to chip in when you're talking in a public setting or to offer opinions on something you said in main chat, complimentary or otherwise.

    Naturally, you have the same rights yourself and anyone who tries to come down on you for exercising them can go take a hike.


    Also, the very problem I am addressing right now, is the same one.
    I don't understand this bit.

    Trust me I have no desire to spend anymore time there. I just think it is sick that after all the history, knowledge, and awareness people have of people, there are groups still more than willing to participate in such animistic dynamics.

    The quality of my discussion, which is debatable, is in no way a justification for having to argue myself against group of people, or shut up and take it, with no promise of the others to change their behavior at all. As a matter of fact it is so perfectly acceptable, they can do as such out in the open, without consequence, and rub that into people's faces.
    You ignored my previous post, but it addressed this concern.

    If people are insulting you personally, report them! Jaguar mentioned that too, and you ignored him. It's a reasonable suggestion. I think a lot of people on this thread were reasonable. Don't generalize this thread based only on the people who posted in it that annoyed you.

    This is why I said that some of the problems you were describing come from your reactivity. Even now, you're feeding the trolls. They'll do what they'll do; you don't need to talk to them on their level. Don't let yourself be a target.

    Posts back, I claimed that I do not interrupt anyone's conversation, when they are talking about shit I could care less about. I stated that I just make comments about what is on my mind, and if someone happens to tune into that, and want to speak, we can have a discussion.

    This in no way justifies being told to shut up, personal slams, or insults.

    No doubt people gang up on you in vent. I've tried to stop it when I was a Vent regular (and forum regular, neither of which am I really, currently). Incidentally, though, you've said some fucked up stuff to and about me for not making you a mod, when all I've ever done is try to defend you and I was consistently honest about the likelihood of you becoming a mod (not high). It's not a one-sided issue.

    There's really no reason to call anyone a cunt under any circumstances, though, and if I'd been there when that happened I'd probably have kicked starch from the chat. Don't do that.

    I haven't ignored anyone.

    This kind of thread is just mental masturbation, I should know. Any reasonable response won't get an answer. CLOSE THE THREAD
    Whoops.
