    I'm not reading 11 pages. I will read this page though. What I've come to understand is that you guys like bolding your words and crossing words out. There aren't as many emoticons as is often used....

    Are we upset?
    Oh, its
    You

    This reminds me of how, in my TypoC video, for example, I said "This video is probably going to suck, but I'll do my best."

    Now if you just read that sentence, you might think, "Man, he's really insecure."

    Now if I added an emoticon to the end of the sentence so that it looked like this:

    "This video is probably going to suck, but I'll do my best."

    You might think, OK he's joking.

    But it seems that even with the emoticon, some people would still think, "Man he's really insecure."

    I think that's weird, but experience on the forum has taught me that many people here are emoticon illiterate.

    But if you actually SEE my video, where I say "This video is probably going to suck, but I'll do my best,"---the body language, facial expression, and tone of voice make it extremely OBVIOUS that I'm joking.

    In fact, if you watch the video, you will see that many of the things I say would be taken the wrong way without of the context of physical cues.

    Because of this I'm actually considering ONLY posting VIDEO comments, for Christ's sake!

    My point is that people are reading WAY too many things into what I post, and if they had more information, they would have a totally different idea of where I'm coming from.

    Some people have said things like, "Oh, so you expect people to read your mind? How are we supposed to know what you mean when you say things like that? :steam:

    Well, once I again, I DO use emoticons for a reason.

    And since some people are emoticon illiterate, there's not much more I can do in text.

    MAYBE, just MAYBE--what people can do is WITHHOLD JUDGEMENT about someone if they're not sure of the person's intentions.

    MAYBE even give people the benefit of the doubt that they are being misunderstood.

    The fact is, my style of communication doesn't translate well in text.

    You're just not seeing the whole picture, so WHY ASSUME THE WORST???

    IF you are interested, here is my TypoC video, which demonstrates how saying things like "This video is probably going to suck" is NOT a LITERAL STATEMENT, but an OBVIOUS JOKE ( I say it near the beginning of the video) :

    let's workshop this. we are supposed to:

    1. listen to your unfettered thoughts;
    2. agree with them;
    3. validate them;
    4. understand when you're being snarky in a cuddle way versus being snarky in a mean way;
    5. not link your thoughts in this thread to other threads you've made recently;
    5. understand how and why you use particular emoticons and the implication of said emoticon usage; and
    6. watch your youtube videos.

    i have a full-time job. i am not sure i am able to meet these expectations.

    That's ridiculous.

    I'm just explaining things, giving examples, and providing options.

    I'm not REQUIRING anyone to do ANYTHING.


    And I'm only defending myself because I'm clearly on trial.

    Even the people who DO understand where I'm coming from aren't speaking up because I've brought so much shit down on myself they don't want to get shit on too.

    Hell, at this point, I'm surprised I haven't been compared to Hitler.

    lol Yeah, I know Wonka's a decent guy, and he's often misunderstood because of his communication style. I will say this though Wonka, it's up to you to fix that.

    A gruesome beast with dripping flesh
    Clings to me as a sick fixture
    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors

    Maybe.

    But I still don't understand why people are so quick to judge and so harsh in their judgements.

    That kind of approach is totally alien to me.


    Fuck it. This is bullshit.

    I've had enough.

    I'm leaving the forum.

    They're judging you for being an NF male who is openly expressive, straight up.

    I've actually been told this.
