I...disagree with the concept that shortening a long screen name is derogatory in and of itself.
So do I. When I said, "such nick-names", I meant pejorative ones. But I agree that might sometime be hard to determine.
The insults and the like are bad, however, I must point out his use of such terms preceded this and it is hard to separate the usage from the receipt, especially when there was often backsliding on his part.
I agree with that too. As I've said before there is clearly fault on both sides and he who shall be nameless
obviously takes the cake for obscenity (even without the pornography which I'm glad to say I missed).
My point is that there is a pattern
here of persistent and orchestrated denigration and ridicule directed at susceptible AR Posters by others who appear to have no other object in view than to enrage and drive them from the Board. There have been other cases. Oinks
I would like to mention that having a family member that is dyslexic, the aforementioned poster showed no signs of being dyslexic, only a poor speller, which we all suffer from at some point or another.
I disagree. Consider the sentence structure, though I doubt either of us is qualified to judge on the available evidence. In any case, *** said
he was dyslexic and, IMO, unless we know
otherwise that should be good enough.
Also, there are no studies that show that dyslexics suffer from anger management problems any more than the general population.
Communication difficulties can cause intense frustration and can result in angry outbursts and rages: particularly when ridiculed. Not
a radical new proposition Oinks.
Sandra, please don't make excuses for *his* behavior by blaming it on his alleged dyslexia.
This is really
not the best time to practice your willful mis-representation skills Oinks.
I have said nothing
to excuse his behaviour; which is his own responsibility and, as Josh said later, *** "allowed himself
to be pushed over the edge". The point was, he was pushed
I've spent half my life defending my family member against people calling him retarded and the like, simply because his brain works differently than others. It doesn't make him stupid or ignorant.
I'm sorry for it Oinks; really, but this has nothing
to do with your family member. Amy7779311
... I absolutely will not accept responsibility for the actions he took yesterday.
You are not being asked to accept responsibility for anyone's actions but your own. Fosgate
Pornographic images? Good grief. I would have never expected this from anybody. I've lately swapped some PM's with the now-banned poster--all very cordial. Weird.
IMO Fos we would have got a lot more cordiality and more useful contributions (such as those on fox hunting) had he been treated with a reasonable modicum of respect. wijim
i take great offense at the insinuation that amy, rf, donnie, myself and anyone else that i feel was targeted by the accusations of goading "the poster who will not be named" into posting pornography and such.
There was no insinuation. There is an accusation
of goading. Either you were part of it or you were not.
i can speak for myself, my targeting of that person and their significant other
So, you targeted *** and
his, "significant other", I missed that.
... due to their weak arguments, their abuse of the forum rules by trying loopholes ...
Weak arguments are, "targeted", by producing better
ones, you should try that
next time. Abuse of rules is not your business. That's why Josh, and more recently Wayne and I are here. Lodge your complaint next time and help to resolve the problem or stay out of it.
i guess i felt i was up on what type of person i was dealing with....i was correct in my assessment.
You mean you helped to push a vulnerable person over the edge? Good for you!
