Re: Let's all take a deep breath (everyone please read)
LOL you never cease to amaze me.
First, I didn't attack anyone. Check your facts man. I didn't name any names in my posts until you repped me. Not a single one. I also didn't share the identities of anyone named in those private posts nor did I say who they were from. In that regard, I was not aware even that was "against forum policy" nor did I know you were not allowed to share "rep points."
Secondly, I could care less about rep points. With all due respect, I've been here over five years now and have 447 posts. How is it then that I care about reputation? That's a really bizarre assertion there. If I cared about posts, if i cared about rep, I would have more than 500 posts. In fact, if I really cared, taking up issues with people like you would not be about how I'd go about getting rep points - instead I'd just suck it up and suck up to you and others and whatever.
I proposed a couple of solutions in my post, which apparently you failed to read or you picked out what you wanted to.
If I wanted to turn this into my own personal vendetta, wouldn't I have just come out and named the people I have a problem with? Really now, I'm trying to eliminate the conduct such as you're showing right now from this board, not make a list and tell everyone "this is who I have a problem with."
And about having an opinion vs. an unopposed opinion...
again you have failed to understand the issue. No one is looking for an opinion that isn't opposed, it's how you oppose that opinion that is the problem. People are sick of being talked down to for their beliefs. If the response to my post isn't living proof of that, there isn't anything that can be done.
I was trying to avoid personal attacks in this thread and voicing concerns at the same time. Then all of the sudden, someone comes out of the woodwork and gives me a negative rep because I didn't name names - as was asked in the first post.
Once again, it's hypocritical that you accuse me of breaking forum rules, but until you repped me, I had not mentioned anyone by name at all. So which is it, did you want me to call you by name as you suggested in your rep, or did you want me to follow forum rules? You're trying to have it both ways.
