It's not very welcoming and the e-thug attitude is lame.

Not to mention that I couldn't even post my picture without a few people throwing out some random insults. Yeah, I rolled with the punches and took it in good spirits but it really wasn't necessary.
Then you should report it. I know it's hard to keep the same standard all the time, but let's all work on making this place as amicable as possible (without taking all the fun out of it).

Just to be clear, I had a specific problem with you and veridical fiction and reported your behavior. I'd also like to say that I generally like seasoned e-people (which you both seem to be), but also thought you got a bit carried away last night.

I think I made two posts last night that were attacking someone but not really too badly (though I don't remember if anything else happened, it was a long night and I was moody) but in general, it has nothing to do with "if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen" because, like I said, I had people randomly insult me and I didn't fire back, I just went with it. I'm pretty good with keeping my cool but I think more people jump on firing at the new people just because they're new. I highly doubt that if I were being attacked by an older member, no one else would hit the report button.


It just seems like it's easier to point the finger at new people and disregard the older members. In the thread last night, I saw two members fighting who weren't new members. Yeah, a few newer people made a few comments but it seemed in the end that the older members were easily forgiven for insulting each other but the newer people get the shaft. I even saw the idea thrown out that the new people "think they own the place". That's a pretty ridiculous statement. I'm certainly not here to own the place, I'm just posting the same as anyone else.

Meh, just an observation.

This isn't up for analysis.
No-ones getting banned.

This is just a reminder of forum etiquette, that seemed to go out of the window last night.

Wha???
I don't remember what I said... Can I get a link to it?
If you had a problem with something I said, I'm sorry. It would have been nice if you'd said something to me about it before reporting me, that way if it could have possibly been a misunderstanding, I wouldn't be getting rodded unnecessarily.

I suggest that everybody drink a beer and go listen to some of me and Jackhammer's "seven songs" comps. Our thread is lonely.

i'd like it cited where i was insulting,...

yep, i might have called her little girl at one point, however other than that, all i did was try and help a fellow member understand me better when she expressed her confusion

i dont remember there being ill intent on my end

Well as I said, the report button is there for you to use it and bring the mods' attention to what you consider problematic behavior. It's up to them to rule on the issue in the end. I may be in the minority that actually uses it but I used to be a mod and would have appreciated it if more members had done the same. I figure it makes their jobs a bit easier.

As for what you think is and is not appropriate behavior, we obviously disagree, but as I said, it's up to the mods and I think they side with me on this one. You unnecessarily added fuel to the fire.

That would be me again. I just think it's rather backwards for you to try and establish yourself by being a cunt. I think first you need to contribute and prove yourself as a noteworthy addition in the music forums and then you earn the right to spew shit on other, older and therefore established members. None of that matters here though because you were being rude in an argument that didn't pertain to you, unlike the two older members (whose argument should have been stopped earlier, I agree), which is what brought me to the aforementioned conclusion of backward social climbing. Just my two cents of course...

You jumped on the Savannah dissing bandwagon, as your sig still shows. Unnecessary fuel to the fire, that's all.

I use it and I also report via PM anything that I think needs a look at.

When did I say anything about my behaviour being right? I never did but I hardly doubt the two posts I made were really anything that would bring someone to tears, nor was it any worse than what said person was saying to other people. I have no issue with this person and I wont get into anything further about it but I said what was on my mind, just like they did.

Yet another example of what I was talking about.

I have contributed quite well to this forum but you seem to be stuck on two posts that I made last night that didn't even come across that badly. No swear words, no name calling, just a basic "you love yourself too much" summary.



I don't have an issue with her, I hardly even know her, but it seems like, based on her posts, she thinks she is better than everyone else. I think it's rather stupid to have to be a member for a certain amount of time to be able to share that opinion. Unlike most people here, I don't look at dates that people joined. It has nothing to do with sharing an opinion. I'm sure she's a nice girl but she didn't come across that way last night and she isn't fully to blame because a lot of people jumped on her. I said my part and left. Other people kept going. I based my opinion on her posts just like people base their opinion of me on my two posts. It goes both ways but it seems wrong of me to assume she is the way she appeared last night but it's okay for two minor posts of mine to be a full judgement of my character. Again, I am sure the only reason it's a real problem is because I am new. If someone older had said it, it would be either followed or just plain funny.


I generally like the population of people here, even those who have openly taken a dump on me for no reason at all.

Just clearing it up because it appears everyone has a different view of me without reading posts other than those two

Hmmm...

I just went through all my posts from that night and the ONLY thing I could see as being able to be misunderstood as bagging on Savannah was me commenting on one of the tags that someone else entered.
In fact, I found in the same thread me supporting Savannah because everyone was yanking on her about the foreign guy.

Regarding the sig, I didn't even read the original contex where I got my sig from. I saw it in a quote from a post, and I thought it was hilarious.
Until now, I didn't even know that was directed toward Savannah.

Do I have to take the sig down? I wish I didn't, because it still makes me laugh.
Let me know if it's because it has the word "vagina" in it.
Otherwise, I wouldn't mind just having "flappy vagina" for a sig.......


Anyway, this is all pretty useless to be typing, but I just wanted Adidasss to know that instead of making more work for a moderator to have to stop what he's doing to review something someone said, it'd probably be a bit easier to just address the situation yourself by letting the person know he's going to far.
If you don't feel like that's your job, that's cool.
But it saves people's credibility if you check to make sure you're not misunderstanding someone.

Which was what happened in my case.
