this is reminding me of numbnuts (why do they ALL remind me of each other?). it's been a while but i'm surprised we all haven't learned our lesson yet. it's never gonna leave if we keep feeding it. ignore ignore ignore.

For heaven's sake, people, this is Day Four of this. Can you please just cut it out? If you don't like someone, confront the issue in PM or put the person on ignore. Honestly, do we need an entire thread dedicated just to tearing apart one person? How is this a positive contribution to the community?

Please. I beg of you. Let this thread die already.

This is really petty now. Are we adults? Can we act civil? I don't care how nasty or rude anyone of you choose to be towards me, I'm not going anywhere and theres nothing you can do to make me leave. So I'd suggest using the ignore function. Thanks.

I have to agree with tesao, and mando as well:

'I do wish there was less pouncing. and even less nasty pouncing/snarky "not one of us" asides. don't mean to sound holier-than-thou, but when someone irritates the shit out of me, turning off the computer & walking away works wonders.'

Tr**ls are annoying, as is ignorant behaviour in general. But equally annoying to me is the time and energy spent bitching about them, their posts, their breaches in a board etiquette which fluctuates in definition.

I'm glad people are committed to keeping BUST a safe as well as expressive space. I just don't think all this policing is necessary. We all know how to avoid ignorance IRL so surely we're able to do so here.



I wait to see if said person is a troll. Sinfullysmitten, from the beginning did not come off like one to me, just someone who is new.

Kitkitkit did because when she was advised on proper board etiquette it turned into a shit storm.

Anyone who puts the definition of a troll on their sig-line is usually such.

But now, I have her on ignore and am ready to move on.

If you're going to quote me could you please use the quote button?

If you have read the newbies thread (specifically mornington's post where she quotes tesao) you will now know how to make respectful, relevant, on-topic posts. Please do so.

Oh and "prove me to be one or concede"? that's infammatory.

Becuase I have yet to encounter another person as clueless as you are in board etiquette.

Talking about adoption in the pregnancy thread?

Get off (or back on) your high horse and get to steppin, you racist, ninny.


Adoption and pregnancy are two connected things because it still indicates that one wants a child. I'm not racist, where are you getting this from? And would you stop the attacking? It's so juvenile. Like I said, I'll listen to real concerns but I won't put up with being attacked anymore.

I'm not a troll and I've already apologized once so why is this still an issue? What other concerns do you have about me? By all means, I won't bite your head off. Send me a pm and we can discuss any and all issues you have with me further. Lets be adults about this. If you have legitimate concerns, by all means bring them to my attention.

"Oh just leave already?"

If I left, would that resolve anything? I happen to like this board and some of you are very nice and intelligent women that I'm learning so much from. I'd prefer to stay.

"So far you have been a negative presence and you are not making a valid contribution"

Fair enough. How do you suggest that I make valid contributions? I'm really not a negative person but theres been alot going on in my life lately. I know no one probably cares and I shouldn't make excuses but it is the truth. I'll try to be more cheerful here.

"I think you're reading the title of a thread then randomly posting instead of reading previous posts and getting a feel for that thread and what is actually being discussed"

There are some threads where there are replies from 2005! One those threads, I did skim through the most recent pages and posted a reply. I don't understand the issue here if their is a topic about something and my response is on topic or relevant. Plus I don't feel comfortable jumping in on conversations that seem to be going on between other boardies. I feel like that would be rude.

"If you are intent on staying then have a look at tips about how to post -amongst other lounge etiquette- in the newbies thread."

Will do. Going there right now.

if it hasn't occured to anyone else, we are all doing exactly what the classic "troll" definition would want: there has been division amongst ourselves, lots of bickering and name-calling, unfriendliness, and loads of negative attention being heaped onto the provoker.

i think that this person got exactly what they wanted, and what they set out to. i could be wrong, i often am. but it warrants thought.

mmm, and i'm sure you'll be very welcome here too. proving that you Aren't a troll by pm-ing people that they Are fucking cunts is always a great way to intergrate yourself into a community of people.

Honey, if you can't handle a little sarcastic comment, life's gonna be hard for you.

And if you're not here for the attention, why PM me to tell me you're blocking me?

who knows what goes on behind the kitchen door?

[and nothing is wrong with being a housewife but the stereotypical "that is so unfeminist of you to stay at home", hence why I used it to mock. I could easily be a housewife and that's my choice wink.gif; being the peacemaker I can do too but it's exhausting]
