    What do you think?
    When persons #1 and #2 are being sneaky and mean, and making disguised pot shots at person #3. They jump up make a shot and run. And unknowingly persons #4,5,6, and 7 are drug into it and are tricked into making the same pot shots. These people have no idea whats going on, but are just following the lead of #1 and #2.
    Any thoughts?

    Katie, I understand what you mean. I feel like I have to run and hide from certain posters because I could say 'ice cream is cold' and I'd get the response that 'SOME PEOPLE have sensitive teeth and ice cream is painful for them!' I feel like I'm #3 on many of the threads and don't feel I can freely post under anything other than the religious sections, even though the All Other Discussion thread has some cute or interesting threads. Shucks, they even came and jumped on us in the Home School thread for a few days.

    And you are so right about 4, 5, and 6 being drug into the conversation without realizing they're taking pot shots at their 'friends'!

    I'd like to give anyone and everyone permission to share any and all emails and private messages they have ever received from me with everyone on the board, all moderator's and webmaster. I have NEVER spoken rudely in any email or pm to anyone on this board. In fact, I've only written my buddies and two others and the two others was once to apologize for a slight misunderstanding and one was to W/S when I sent her an 'I agree with your post' pm when she came back after leaving over the depression thread (I was not involved in that thread because of my strong feelings and didn't want to hurt any feelings).

    Okay, Okay! I'm getting off the 'private club board' now and heading back to the Bible section before the marker is dry on the picket signs!

    Why don't you out of respect for the rest of us on the board, do like most of us do and handle your personal problems with people in private?

    If you call people by a number instead of their name, it doesn't change the fact that it's gossip.

    Well...you asked for "any thoughts" those are mine.

    I did not say I had a problem with anyone. I do not. Apparently they have a problem with me. And if you do try and handle things in a pm they only come on the public boards and lie about you. What they forget is that I also have a copy of the pm's to prove I have done nothing wrong. Why don't 'some of the rest' respect me and stop lying about me? If you say that mentioning it without names is gossip, then how about 'some of the rest' stop spreading the gossip about me. So far all I've done is sit back and watch it. I think it's time for a few 'christian' to start acting like christians and stop lying and gossiping.

    I understand perfectly Kate, just as anyone who has been the brunt of the pot shots and I think it is wrong.

    It's not gossip if no names are mentioned. Who wants to spread a story about numbers?
    :confused: Besides, you can't tell ANYONE 'cause you don't know if you are talking to the 'wrong' number! :D

    Charlotte,
    That is so true, isn't it? When a statement is made and no name given, the accusing finger points to all.

    Sometimes silence is the most efficient judge. Let them stew in their own sauce, whilst you enjoy the peace of knowing who you are. To those who are your friends, no evidence will convict. To those on the other side, no evidence will suffice.

    Peace and joy,

    Cheers,

    Jim

    PS, I am accusing no one, but making a general statement of truth; a fact of life.

    I think this topic would have been better, if placed in the member forum away from new people coming in. It does not represent the whole board of 5555 people, very well.

    Perhaps a moderator will see this and move it.

    I think a key factor in all Christians; part of their walk is to forgive...and with forgiveness comes forgetting. If you cannot forget, you have not forgiven.

    How can we ask God to forgive us, if we cannot forgive others?

    God Bless

    Like I said I do not have a problem, someone else seems to have something they refuse to let go of, even though I did send a pm weeks ago appologizing, that person(#1) has refused to respond, and continues to play their games. And they are doing it openly on public forums.
    Not to worry I have been in contact with mods, and have sent proofs.

    Perhaps I am the culprit. I rarely get upset, but I
    became incensed that both Katy and another
    were being unfairly, in my opinion, attacked. Not
    going into detail, I told the person that he needed
    to apologize to both ladies or walk.

    I did this publicly. I will not e-mail or PM anyone
    with anything like this; if I cannot say it publicly,
    I will not say it at all. I have never sent a private
    negative message to anyone.

    It was none of my business. For that, I apologize.

    However, he asked me to apologize for calling
    him a stalker; for that, I will not. Truth needs no
    apology and screams in pain when given one.

    I must be one of those people, because I don't know what's going on.

    Cheers,

    This situation really saddens me,as it must do a lot of others.

    Maybe we all need to be reminded of Galatians 5:22-23

    The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

    Now that I get a glimpse of what Katie was trying to say, for at the onset of this thread I did not (see the second post above), I believe that this subject is in the wrong forum and hereby (with your kind permission) am transferring the same to the Member's Private Forum. Just click on the link below to follow the thread. Barnabas (your friendly BB Administrator) [​IMG]
