A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!


« on: August 12, 2012, 04:49:15 PM »

looking at Nakuyabi's explosive flameout post, I am left at a loss for words.
I love this forum.  I have no enemies here, just friends I occasionally disagree with.
Why are some people so incapable of rational discussion?  Even though there were a few substantive
issues on which I might find myself in agreement with the departed (A FEW), how could anyone not
even be aware of how outrageous, hateful, and divisive such rhetoric is?

I'm sorry I even started the thread.  I thought we could have an enjoyable and thoughtful discussion,
which is what I love about this place.  Some people make such things impossible.  Too bad.

Indy, sometimes you're naive.  If you feel this is a good forum for friendly, intelligent discussion on myriad topics, how could you repeatedly look the other way when I have been trashed for discussing such in just the manner you describe?  You have seldom come to my defense when I have stood alone, rebuked and reviled... by at least a few... Nakuyabi being just the latest example.

There are some threads I just don't read, but if I sense you are being unfairly piled on, I will come to your defense.  Frankly, I rarely see you needing my help!  You are an excellent debater, and I've alwyas enjoyed our little sparring matches.  Frankly, I thought the place had calmed down a good bit of late, until Naku pulled a nutter.  Anyway, he's gone, we're here, so let's all party! Cheers

Evasion is what I would expect from you.  My opinion of you remains unaltered.  If there was someone I would trust most, it would be you.  However, CC has truly risen to the plate, never in my defense, but in a way that I can only describe as admirable.  So, he is the one I most admire.

What are you talking about?  Who's worked up?  What are you reading here?  Stop poking.

Is it reasonable to get all bent out of shape over typed words (lacking nuance) from nearly complete strangers? 

Do I post too many rhetorical questions?

BTW, to the Brits, your isles put on a wonderful Olympics.  Thank you.  :)

Eric Idle? Bummer! I missed it.

As for heated discussions,I have been involved in a good many at other forums. I remember over at one in particular a good friend,my sister and I were dog-piled something terrible over the subject of thread drift. Seems that it was a seriously hated thing there and people would really get their knickers in a twist if the discussion even slightly drifted from the main topic. They took it as being uncaring and thoughtless.
Now,I never want to hurt anyone with my words and I realize that everyone has an opinion. But when it comes down to name-calling then it's no longer a debate but a plain old fight. Whether I agree with someone or not I don't want angry feelings to result. I guess I'm a bit like Indy there....that's one thing I love about this site. The ability to discuss without bitterness.

I guess that's what Indy was referring to, but he seems more perplexed than "worked up".  Nakuyabi is apparently gone... banned?  I don't know.  I don't care.

From the wording of his final post, he apparently entered it and then cancelled his membership.  I will not miss him.

hallows- I was saying I couldn't understand why that guy was getting so upset about it, not indy. It was also a bit of whagt is sometimes referred to as hobby horsing, using a arbitrary topic to launch into your thing you want to talk about. like I sometimes do with foreign policy

Wow, I missed that event and glad I did.  What is it about forums that brings out the nutcases anyhow?  I hate that stuff. civility is important to making a case.

I often disagree with some folks here but its not that I don't LIKE y'all as people.  Indy, you are a wise and kindly friend whom I disagree with on political stuff.  Hallows is a good commentator who always contributes (if pedanaticly  TeddyR ) interesting spins and information, and a laugh.  
You are BOTH good fellows in my book, no matter how I agree or disagree with what you say. I'll be off in the less contraversial zones.
