Please, this thread is in support of Polly, not rehashing everyone's opinions or placing blame. If you enjoyed her, tell us why.
Yes, an "english colloquialism", I'm very familiar with.It's a shortened version of a certain word, ....
Indeed. Pretty bad. 3 on 1. 4 on 1. Internet bullyism at it's finest.Okay well reading through it, it does look pretty bad the exchanges.....
I am the worst player on the boards. I was being kind to name myself Average. Good enough or would you like more? How about this - I can't even play drums. I walk into a room and the drums run away. More? Furthermore, everyone on here is smarter and better looking than me. Everyone has better teeth than me (including the British posters).... Average. Considering his username, he sure does seem to think he's better than a lot of other people on here from what i'm reading.
Never happened. I think you misread the exchange completely. I've never asked her (or any other posters) to leave and I was not referring to her specifically in any of my posts. If you read the thread, look at post #212. I don't know how I can say it more specifically than that.I thought that was pretty pathetic that he starts dissing on her for calling people by their username, i guess it makes some people feel uncomfortable like they're worried about having an emotional attachment to someone they are having a conversation with on the internet or w/e.
Right on Ian, I do miss That Guy and Jon as well. Also, if you notice, Keep it Simple has bailed on us too, (not permanently I hope) another tragedy stemming from the same place. Polly is also one of the rare females here. To have a point of view that is not coming from a male is in itself valuable as hell. We're way top heavy on male opinions here, and need to treat our female members with a little extra respect, just as it is in "real life".
No backlash fom me Bosphorus, but I will say, I'm not sure it can be veiwed that simplistically. For mine, there indeed was a 'gang up' mentality (I'm not trying to take away from the opinions expressed here, just the way they very much seemed to single Polly out). I for one, regret not coming to her defense. I had only made one comment on the thread and didn't feel it was my place. I won't make that mistake again next time I see a valued member attacked. The thing I love about this forum is the differing opinions, but surely these can be expressed without a perceived attack on any particular member?i don't know at happened, but not posting on a forum because of one arguement, well it seems as though she is having a hissy fit really......if you love a forum, then you don't let the idiots bring you down, just stop looking where they are commenting!
but i do remember some of her posts, and they were good ones
( i fear that i may get a backlash from the whole hissy fit comment, but i stand by it!)
No, read post #1. Last 2 sentences...... I personally think this entire thing is getting blown out of proportion.
It did exactly that. Like locking 2 cats in a closet, that you know hate each other, and then be supprised when the "outcome" isn't pretty.I know this will divide the forum, that's why I've posted this. Let's get it on!
