 Maybe so, Curtis, but Jim didn't call the police and fink on anyone. Do you 
have any comments on that?

C: Sure Richard, I welcome a writing prompt on this topic. I believe you are on 
the wrong side of that issue.

First of all the concept of "finking" is context dependent and rooted in middle 
school values of "us against them." It is also found in gangs and other 
criminal enterprises and prisons where it is used to intimidate people who are 
getting exploited or abused in those closed systems.

It is not a concept that stands on its own as an adult concept for people not 
engaged in group criminal enterprises. And it especially shouldn't be invoked 
by someone who through the years has himself attempted to get the moderators 
and even Yahoo groups supervisors themselves involved in what is said here. 
Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't it you who recently was making a case that 
this site violates Yahoo's policy on pornography (erroneously IMO)?

But back to a deeper issue. Jim and Nabbie had crossed a critical line of 
meaning to do harm to Barry in his real life here. They deliberately 
misconstrued what he had said to advocate on a public board that he be 
investigated in his real life for  something horrible. I work in school. This 
kind of misunderstanding can move so fast and destroy lives so ruthlessly that 
I have all sorts of safeguards to protect myself when working in schools. It 
only takes an innuendo in this area to destroy a professional career. Just 
yesterday two girls in my class went off together to work in quiet in a back 
room of the teacher's office to construct their instruments. I was there to 
help the kids with their projects. I could not enter the room they were in to 
help them or even tell them to come back to the group. I had to locate a female 
staff member and get her to go back alone with the two girls. That is how red 
hot this issue is and the stakes are high for my livelihood. When someone on 
this forum tried to pull the same thing on me I was terrified about my job. 
Once I realized that it was his intent to harm me in my real world with his 
lies I was trapped. What could I do? Luckily for me he also outed someone's 
personal identity so he was booted, but that taught me a serious lesson here. 
Some people want to harm you fer real real.

If I had had Barry's knowledge of who could have helped me fight back legally, 
I would have used it. He was right to nip that shit in the bud before it harmed 
him. You never know how the process of even checking on an accusation by an 
agency can destroy a family and people's lives. And this complication creates a 
distraction from the actual cases which are going unexamined because of people 
using this accusation as a weapon. I am a committed child advocate and all 
these issues cut me to the quick. This is serious shit to me.

So I reject the concept of not "finking" as a concept I value. I would gladly 
tell the appropriate authorities about either people exploiting children or 
people using our societal outrage as a malicious weapon against someone 
unfairly, as was happening to Barry."Snitches get stitches" is the intimidation 
code of people who exploit others through intimidation and it is destroying 
communities in my neighborhood through ignorance and misplaced allegiance. 
Where I live crime goes under-reported because of this kind of ignorant 

You and I have found our way to a reasonable relationship here Richard. I think 
you have gone overboard with your attitude toward Barry and it has clouded your 
judgement about a pretty clear ethical line that got crossed. In the end the 
two who were in the wrong left and peace should be restored to the kingdom. If 
you will let it drop.

 Jim was one of the worst negative name-callers on the forum for years. The 
place is waaaay better off without him. Same with Nabbie. The post you posted 
on below is a blatant lie meant to hurt the reputation of another poster 
through distortion of his intent. It was way beyond trolling and along with 
Nabbie represented a line that should not have been crossed. I'd say he left 
just in time because he was escalating to an actionable level as Barry defended 
himself legally. And you seem to be going along with that.
 Why? Because you are a name caller and a negative influence constantly framing 
other points of view in the weird language of religious fundamentalist 
ignorance. Your insincere persona is part of the problem IMO. You are not 
showing up here authentically, so I don't know who you are or what you really 
represent. I believe you yourself are confused and conflicted. I don't know 
what you deem "healthy discussions" but I have rarely seen you instigate or 
participate in one. You are a slogan slinger, not a careful thinker.
 How about the discussion of George's overthrow of Maharishi's teaching? You 
heard the guy. You know what Maharishi taught. Do you believe that Maharishi 
and Jesus have not seen God? That is what he claimed in the questions. That 
NONE of the luminaries in his band of spiritual gypsies on the other side has 
seen God. So basically all GC is bullshit. Did you consider that as you put 
Barry and I down for speculating that perhaps we need another explanation for 
why George was making such claims than that he really IS BRIGHU? And this is 
all in terms of the teaching itself, not my POV on reality. You pretend to be 
such a solder for the cause of Maharshi's vision, but you can't speak up about 
a guy literally ripping the teaching to shreds in a public forum with old time 
Maharishi leaders high fiving him. 
 And you think that Barry or me voicing our disagreements with Maharishi's 
claims are the biggest problem right now.
 You are not keeping your eye on the ball "Buck." Rome is burning and you are 
watering your plants.

 Dear Rick, I feel really sorry for you that you are left with just this 
cesspool of negativity from the recent separation in the FFL membership. This 
is not what we had hoped for with the forum as we started FarifieldLife these 
many years ago at Yahoo-groups. It is not too late to re-think this forum as a 
place for healthy discussions to occur. I hope for a better future here, -Buck

 Rick, I am sorry, but a forum where anyone is allowed to suggest sexual 
violence AGAINST children, is not someplace I want to be. I am truly sorry 
things have degenerated to this point. I am local to the Yahoo corporation, and 
am considering a detailed notice to the Yahoo administrators, including screen 
names, of this current activity. 
 Barry makes one excuse after another, about using this foul, sexually 
perverted, and unbalanced voice, and is clearly not well. This is no longer a 
healthy environment for anyone to participate in.
 I am all for differing opinions on here, but you have allowed one individual's 
mental illness to co-opt what could be a fun place to hang out, and I guess I 
am one of the casualties. See ya!!
