Salyavin, the mysterious and fascinating thing for me is that each of us on FFL is triggered by someone different, by different online behavior. I like Richard a lot because I don't get any sort of snide or arrogant or "mean" vibe from him. At all. And I enjoy something in all FFLers but one. So I think of him as my "shadow" to work on. Anyway, it's all grist for the mill, it all can be used to help us develop fully, yada yada. That's why I continue here. Go figger. PS I admit it's still a bit weird for me when 2 people I really like, like you and Richard, are at odds with each other. But I shall soldier on (: Eh? I'm not at odds with him, I've often tried to engage him but he just gets aggressive. I don't understand it so I just ignore. People are perfectly entitled to dislike me if they want, I don't mind in the slightest. It's probably just because I don't share his beliefs or something trivial. But yes, these web alliances can run deep and it can be fascinating when someone reveals another side to them and you suddenly have to re-evaluate them. I'm sure if we all met face-to-face it would be different, forming opinions on someone based just on their religious predilections or otherwise is going about life in a different way to normal and is bound to cause fractiousness. That's life in the wild web for ya!

You seem like a really nice person to me so I don't understand his behavior at all. But I'm very glad you're still here. I think it's more relevant to try and explain Willytex's behaviour and why he's irritating enough to drive people to distraction. Just try simply not having an opinion the same as his and you'll get endless tedious trolling, and I mean endless. I can't believe you haven't noticed it. If it wasn't for the ability to scan posts without opening them there wouldn't be anyone here because he's like a little dog snapping at your heels. On and on and on. I suspect that's his plan, a sort of attempt at denial of service. If you ever do try and engage him on his opinions all you get is some well practised non-committal slogans and a few irrelevant links to wikipedia that he either doesn't understand himself or can't be bothered to think about it. After two post he goes straight back to abuse. Years and years and years he's been doing it, what he gets out of logging on here everyday is anyone's guess. He says he's proud of his internet legacy, but why take part in a discussion board if you aren't going to discuss anything? I think he just likes spreading shit around. This is why nobody bothers talking to him. Go figure. Same with Steve, he replied to a post of mine yesterday saying that it looked boring and he wasn't going to read it! What the fuck? Tell me Share, is there a point to it that you can see? I'm at a loss. If I see something that doesn't interest me I just skip to the next one, why make a point about it. Every time. Every day. Barry, on the other hand brings a lot to the place and isn't just a one trick pony with nothing to say. You may not agree with what he says but it is a discussion board and not a facebook page, we all have the choice to respond and alternatives with how we spend out time if we'd rather not. It actually fascinates me that we all come back day after day. Ugh, the rain has begun. Supposedly will turn to ice overnight. So glad I've got brand new tires. From: "'Richard J.

Think about it. Yes, there is something that bothers you here, but you haven't got it yet. > For the record, this is payback for all the shit he has given me for the past ten years. The tables are turned now, his turn to cry. The guy has been a shit-heel as long as I've been around the internet - that's his game. Frankly, I don't care what he thinks or says - he's never accomplished a damn thing, so far as I can tell. > ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <sharelong60@...> mailto:sharelong60@... wrote : Steve, I don't mind when people confront turq one on one. But I really don't like it when the piling on and ganging up happens. Something about that seems very unhealthy to me, mainly for the people doing it.
