Well it's nice being valued. I appreciate it. It's nice to have a venue where people will read what I write and respond to it. It's useful and it's emotionally rewarding.... Most of the time!

If I was being harsh a few days ago about your poetry, I'm sorry, there's no malice or ill intention there, I'm saying what I think, at that time. Sometimes you might say (or not say) something to me, I've learned not to take it personally, I know it's no issue

That vision was me but it was also simultaneously my dad. I think this is potentially an interesting topic, in as much as I'm usually happy to talk about myself. What it doesn't do is make you right about what transpired yesterday. That was ridiculous. I don't hold a grudge, and I don't need to go on about it, but it was ridiculous.

Yep, it's very interesting.

I don't need to go on about it either, but it wasn't ridiculous at all. I was pissed off first, for good reason.

But lest it go on forever, that is my last post on that.

FFS, stop playing the martyr.

Youve literally said that the rules dont apply to you, you think youre a god and you'll do the whatever the fuck you want, treat people however you want to and never apologise for anything. We've had this megalomania before from other people and it sours the entire forum.

Everyone loves you and wants you here, but basic levels of respect and civility arent too much to ask for.

You were pissed off for good reasons, but those reasons didn't bear any relationship to what had occurred. It was a misinterpretation of events. Which happens. And it's ok.

thing is, luka would say to someone else what you said about his poetry without flinching. whether it be about something you did, or something you have shown is dear to you. he even made a thread about the fact that he does that. he provokes and pushes, but when it goes too far he acts all indignant when the inevitable backlash begins. that's whats happening here.

As I say this has to work both ways

Is that right? And are you enjoying it? Does it feel good?

no luka, i honestly wish you would just be a man and apologise for once. we would all forgive you and move on fast. this is in no way fun.

you're being stubborn to save face. everyone can see that

I've often apologised. Whenever I've looked into my heart and decided I was in the wrong, I've apologised. Sometimes I apologise just to spare myself the grief. I'm always happy to apologise when I think it's appropriate. I've apologised profusely to patty on more than one occasion. I've apologised droid before at great length. When I'm wrong I do it. Which cannot be said for everyone here.

Patty you know perfectly well I have apologised to you on the past. I have treated you badly before and I felt guilty about it and I apologised. This happened.

I agree with you that you take more risks than most, and it gives things some verve, that is why I like this forum. And I also understand that you genuinely felt what you said about going to a gay club etc was having a laugh, but if baboon takes offence at that, I think it's fair enough. I would not, but you have to accept some people will. He called you out on it, cos he dint like it, you called him a cunt and told him to leave. So what you said, that is too far. Does that make sense to you?

does it not remind you of the other flare ups in recent times? do you not see the pattern?

we don't want to hurt you (this isn't ganging up), we just want to keep this place sane, as one of the last outposts of decent conversation in the internet universe. you happen to be one of the brightest shining stars within our little galaxy and noone wants to lose that.

Patty, there are regular flare ups here yes. If you are asking me if I feel I need to take sole responsibility for those flare ups then I am afraid the answer has to be no

noone is saying you are solely responsible for everything. the fact that you interpret it like that says a lot.

a genuine acknowledgement of saying some stupid stuff for lols is not the biggest thing to ask for man. go and re read it all and tell me if you honestly can't fathom why this thread went the way it did

I know why it went this way. But you reject my interpretation and I reject yours.

Its worth reflecting on why you keep finding yourself in these situations. There's a pattern of behaviour here. Its been pointed out to you a few times in recent months.

And its the very community you treat so cavalierly pointing this out. Good people who sincerely care about you.

Something else to consider.

As I say droid it's not something I am prepared to accept sole responsibility for. This is your fault as much as it is mine. We are equal partners.
