My Twenty Day Journey

    An Open Letter to NS.

    Dear NS,

    Although you may be disappointed and possibly upset, I will be refraining from responding to any and all of your postings until 15 October 2013. This includes your less obnoxious posts about cats, lost dogs, and crockpot cookery among others. Until then I am washing my hands of your trollish, immature, bigoted, and uncivil comments that only polarize users of this forum. This declaration also includes a moratorium on responding to other users whose posts (often in rebuttal) are of the same ilk.

    While my behavior is not perfect, your behavior is atrocious. Whatever reward you gain from playing your game, it isn’t worth my time or attention. Nor will I be an enabler to your activities. I urge others to join me in this twenty day journey.

    Hopefully, you will take this message to heart and alter your ways.  After 15 October 2013, well, we shall see.

    Some may complain that this post only provides fodder to others, or is “all about me”. However, please accept this post has an honest reflection as it has only the best intentions.

    Sincerely,
    Mr. Dezlboy

    Great idea.  Add to it use of AdBlock while nonsense is tolerated/sponsored.

    Will you PLEASE stop starting topics about me? Do me a favor, and all of your fellow obsessed friends, NEVER respond to any of my posts again.

    Have you started topics about steve before?

    Regardless, steve is definitely trollier than thou.

    I respectfully ask that posters in this thread also do not directly respond to NS, not matter how difficult. This is the only way “my message” will not get lost in other side-discussions.

    I really want this to work for all of us and make these forums a place that more people want to visit.

    “trollier than thou” is one of the best things I’ve read all day.

    Signing off…and thought it would be FUN to write in the STYLE of random CAPITAL LETTERS  to help make my POINT.  Curious how he’s gong to DISCUSS anything if he demands people NEVER respond to his posts AGAIN.

    I always thought that dezlboy was your dog, but that you (the person) are a woman.

    I’m in.

    @No:  Well, no, No.  :-)   My username is “dezlboy”. I am a male. My dog is a neutered male. Sometimes on this board, I also feel neutered. :-) I’ll take your impression of me as a female as a compliment.  Females are so much more mature than males.

    @wimmer201, of course, you are “signing off” from only certain posts or posters.  I hope!

    Please do (take it as a compliment).

    He’s already backing away from his aggressive posts filled with vitriol.

    I hope this means to both threads that he starts AND ones that he posts comments on.

     

    Now if we can get others to commit to the same AND actually not take the bait.
