Except when it's all personal. Which is a clear pattern here.

Which brings me back to my original point. Again.

Yeah, seriously Lying, you need to chill out too. You're not helping anything.

:::face palm:::

First of all, a good moderator doesn't "call someone out for being a dick" based solely on not liking someone's stance on social issues and then lock the thread. A good mod locks a thread when it's getting out of hand and says "this is getting out of hand" and locks it.

Secondly, I've been trying not to say this for the past couple of weeks now, but this new little thread you're tugging on? This "don't you realize everyone hates you and wants you gone?" Thread? Without dragging anyone else into this, do you realize how many discussions there have been about wanting you out for some of the things you've done? I mean you have said somethings that have really, really pissed a lot people off on a personal level.

Difference between you and me? I generally find it to be in bad form to bring things like that up. But if you're going to? Well, there it is.

I know where I stand here. There are people that wish I would disappear, and for most of them, the feeling's pretty mutual. That's an inevitable part of having a strong personality. Anytime you stand out, no matter why you stand out, there will always be people who hate you. So be it.

But I've also got friends here. I've left a number of times; not out of anger but because real life got busy and I just never found the time. Know what I heard every time? "We miss you. It's not the same without you. Come back." Made me feel damn good.

I've spent a lot of time on forums, Bedmon. A lot of time. I've made a lot of mistakes, but I've learned a hell of a lot of lessons about them. And one big lesson I learned: (well, one lesson that I always knew, was never dumb enough to mistake, but has been repeatedly confirmed for me) never presume to speak for the forum. You think I'm a jerk. Oh well. You want me gone. Oh well. You say the forum doesn't want me here? That is not for you to say.

I really REALLY hope you don't disappear, corporeal wraith would be scary to stare down, Wraith with the power of invisibility would make me shit myself.

He got his name due to his strange ability to just appear silently out of the blue and scare his friends without meaning to. When he told me this I laughed at him becuase yeah right, a 6'4' black man his size "sneaking" up on people.

And then A WILD WRAITH APPEARS. And scares the shit out of me every couple of days. He even manages to come home from work through the door silently, and that door is NOT quiet.

It could be a new thing for you two, after all this time, you never even bothered to ask.

Not to drag this out, but Wraith, when did Lying say he wanted you gone?

Was that somewhere else, because it wasn't part of the original text in this topic.

It was in the The Friend Zone thread, right before it got locked. Post seems to have vanished so I presume it was erased.

A prick. A bastard. Persona non grata. A stubborn, thick-headed, troll of a human being that has no place in a mature and rational discussion because he truly has no concept of how one is to transpire without a megaphone pressed to his lips and anger flowing from them. A man who must truly mistake his physical prowess for his intellectual prowess because certainly the only weight in his arguments is how loudly he declares them.

You are neither liked nor welcome here, Wraith. This is not because of your religion, your race, your home country, your politics, nor any trait beyond your power to change, but because you so easily and readily, without restraint nor notice, destroy all forms of discussion, reducing them to piles of ashen hate, and until now most of us have been rather content to simply ignore you.


The theme has been continues since. Not quite so blatantly, but there have been repeated implications that nobody likes me; which, again, is not his call to make. He doesn't like me. And that's fine. I don't like him. Some other people don't like me. And that's fine. I don't like them. A lot of other people don't like him. But to say I'm not liked or welcomed? Nope. That is neither true nor for him to say.

I think the only way to settle this is a cage match...

Joking aside.

I'm also sorry for bringing this thread into existence. Frankly Lying and Wraith are the reason this question was on everybody's lips. I suggest they either kiss and make up or use the forum's ignore function. I'm sick of this feud, man up the pair of you.

Graham please lock and bury this thread. I'm very sorry for creating it.
