Interesting perspective.i want it clearly understood that banishing TRW was not my intent, nor was I consulted in any way ... but I applaud the decision and frankly am glad to see the end of that festering litter box and it's constant cat fights. Good riddance to it.
I would point out that today, there are only 2 active threads, one of them being the discussion of the TRW's condition. Speaks volumes about the future of this site, no?
When I first arrived here at OTC I played in the RW before it was wrecking hall. I also attempted to participate in a number of other thread where and it was somewhat difficult not being a part of the clic. As my politics came to be known there were poster who chose to not interact and were consistantly dismissive and rude outside of TRW. Some were nasty as snakes in any thread I posted in; MsAnnThrope, Squiggy, A13 immediately come to mind.RJ, and everyone else: I make no bones about my opinions, particularly here. Anyone with less than 10% of their posts outside the RW is a self-serving git that this place could well do without. That's not the opinion of the owner of this board. It's not the consensus opinion of the staff. That's my opinion. The only thing I hate more is that I, personally, was unable to cut that trend off. I've invited dozens of people to join here, but after one day's lurking, they decided it wasn't worth it. We got a couple of old-timers from OCN on here, where are they now?
I guess I do not meet your standards of a "good member" because my contributions do not meet your standard therefore must not have any value. I would also have to assume that this is your kind way of telling me to leave becuase you do not value anything I might have to offer.anyone here to contribute to the board as a whole, regardless of affiliation, is a good member in my book. Someone just looking to pick a fight needs to be elsewhere, regardless of the loss.
"Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
-- C.S. Lewis
If you were in a position of real power, how would you rule?
. The one time I reached for the ban button, I personally felt that the person I was about to ban was the one wronged. If I'd gone with my personal feelings, Gonz would have taken a time out. He'd provoked the situation ... but even tho I understood, she was the one who crossed the line and was gone. He'd stayed just inside the line. Since then, he's proven to be quite expert at dancing on the line......
