Newf...what can I say? To me this particular thread is all about venting which I'd say is understandable being a lot of us had a good deal of time invested in BT only to be tossed like trash.... Carps/craftspeople/artisians are a passionate group not robots. The months of the presidential campaign was the most intense in history. What did anyone expect would happen in a Tavern? Would it have calmed down? I'm pretty certain it would have. It amazes me that Cooks Talk doesn't have the same issues. They were/are as rowdy as we were yet they still post with little sign of banishment. Something to be said for woman and heated discussions.
I don't need to be put into my place by anyone. I'm fifty freaking seven years old for god sakes. I can take heated discussions. I can scroll past posts I consider idiotic or stop and let the person know how I feel.
Would I do that to the same degree in a building thread? Not nearly the same way I wouldn't. I do have a certain amt of common sense in spite of how stupid I may look.
Do I look to lure people in like a troll like I see a select group do? I have no need to b/c I tell them exactly how I feel....to their faces..given the opportunity and folks deserve the right to have a place to do that within a community. If it is in fact a Tavern then the propriators have the right to keep the youngin's out if necessary and if there are any elders that are in the minority and find that Tavern offensive then find a new one...ya know..turn the channel.
Luka said he would ban me...knock yer self out. It's not like I have anything much invested here and even if I did... I do however appreciate the fact that Cal has given people the opportunity to vent pretty freely so far. Little things don't go unnoticed by me or a lot of other people I don't think.
I never did get how people don't have the sense to turn the channel or scroll past a post if they feel offended, rather then trying to change the entire dynamics of the atmosphere. There's a lot to be said about passion which is one reason I have no desire to ever go back to that swamp known as Taunton's Breaktime graveyard...not the way it is now anyway....and I doub't it will ever change. Ya can never go home...ya know? Where I hang my hat today is my home as long as I feel welcomed in. Namaste' andy Ps...so there is or isn't a spell check here
