Clipper    Posted 12-03-2004 at 05:56:38       [Reply]  [No Email]
Going to grab the bull by the horns here in this posting to you KL folks. The incident with my nephew deleting posts here has long gone down the road.He paid a heavy price for his actions,I have forgiven him,and we have moved on. I never once came on this Forum and denied that it was my computer that was used for what was done.
For those of you here that hold that days events against me then the best solution I can offer is for you to ignore my postings and move on to other postings here. I regret what happened here but I can't change the past.

For those of you who still harbor ill feelings towards me I can only ask you to abide by the same standard as I am here now setting for myself with this post. I will NOT respond in any way to a negative posting/snipe against me regarding the incident mentioned. In addition I will NOT respond to any posting from either toolman or Burrhead for any reason.

There are a lot of good folks here whom I enjoy conversing with. I will not walk away from that simply because a few diehard haters won't let go of the past for the sake of their own amusement and personal vendetta.

Kim: If it is your wish that I not post here then I simply urge you to delete this post and block my ISP from posting here.No explantion needed. I offer you my apology for what transpired in the past.

i don't quite understand how someone can "delete" another person's post?????

Donna from Mo    Posted 12-03-2004 at 10:50:53       [Reply]  [No Email]
They can't, now. For the space of a few days, MONTH'S ago, anybody could delete anybody else's post here, due to some sort of fluke. Somebody chose to dig up bones and mention it. (I tried it myself... went to the last page and deleted some stuff. I know, curiosity killed the cat). Anyhow, I thought it was all water under the bridge.

~Lenore    Posted 12-03-2004 at 11:22:01       [Reply]  [No Email]
It should be, Donna.

Kim had changed servers and when she did, it somehow allowed deleting. When Kim was informed of it she corrected it. Only Kim can delete posts since that time.

I do believe some days posting is hot and heavy and with only three pages they can disappear very quickly without anyone "deleting".

Is this at all related to cow flatulance, or the price of Canadian fence post holes?
Just wondering.

Burrhead    Posted 12-03-2004 at 08:16:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
Clipper if you read and respond to this or not is not important but please do not mislead these folks like that.

The present issue has nothing at all to do with your nephew.

The present problem is from you mealy mouthing Clod and myself.

I'm used to lying backbiting attacks and don't mind them at all if they are directed towards me, but you are/were bad mouthing Clod and that does bother me.

Clod has not talked about you period, good nor bad, and has never been involved with or tied up in any post you or your computer has made.

Please don't mislead these folks into thinking this is a long time grudge. If you'll remember I have defended you up til this brainfart you've pulled. Besides that a lowlife like you would'nt make a pimple on a good man like Clod's butt.

I don't believe    Posted 12-03-2004 at 08:37:55       [Reply]  [No Email]
my eyes. Did I really read that or is someone ficticiously posting for the outspoken Mr. Burrhead. Could it be that he has adopted the family attitude toward Clod? That is to say, he is mine to critize but don't anyone else dare invade my domain.

People, people, people, this is too much for my brain to handle. Just imagine, there is a private war going on right here at C/L and the rest of us is barred from joining in. I'll tell you friends, it's got me shaking my head from left to right. What say we toss the bat, place hand over hand and choose up sides and jine in anyway.

you noticed....    Posted 12-03-2004 at 10:09:49       [Reply]  [No Email]
that too didja??? :^)

toolman    Posted 12-03-2004 at 14:29:50       [Reply]  [No Email]
you two don,t even have the backbone to post your name, and you critize someone else.

Donna from Mo    Posted 12-03-2004 at 10:51:56       [Reply]  [No Email]
I love this soap opera!

"As K&L Turns" ???? Naw....... :^)

Donna    Posted 12-03-2004 at 11:01:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
Nope, but he's grown himself a lovely deep-mahogany-colored winter coat!

Clipper    Posted 12-03-2004 at 11:05:20       [Reply]  [No Email] 3 all look like heavy-duty Persian rugs......last week we hadda 6 inch snow drop here and they was all out cavorting like a bunch of teenagers.....plumb wore themselves out....and I got tired just watching em. :^)

I gotta say...    Posted 12-03-2004 at 08:40:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
...that one kind of left me speechless as well. I can only hope that fences have been mended.


Alias    Posted 12-03-2004 at 07:58:03       [Reply]  [No Email]
Clipper, as for my part in all this, I don't care one way or the other who deleted messages. You see, if I didn't read em, I don't know what I missed. And, if I don't know what was contained in them, how then can I really care. To me, that falls into an area similar to not reading the leading newspaper in BumFolke, Egypt. Therefore, I'm all about live and let live. And, if this place become too overly selective over who can and cannot post here, I'll just go bact to doing whatever I was doing before I found this place. If, I can only remember what that was. Now, what was it we were working on? Oh yeah, I remember, and, all I got to say is if anyone out there actually remembers what went down, maybe they should take a few forgetful pills. In other more direct word, F O R G E T A B O U T IT.....GFP

toolman    Posted 12-03-2004 at 14:34:37       [Reply]  [No Email]
Alias nobody ever said anything about him posting here except kim warned him, there are alot of other issues this guy has and runs all over the internet spreading garbage about anybody, this time its me it seems could be you next, it his demented mind who knows , as for me i have made alot of friends here but i don,t have to defend myself for standing up to a person who has reapeatly attacked me.

where the he$$ is BUMFOke, Egypt. i looked on map quest, couldnt find it. LOL

Cindi    Posted 12-03-2004 at 07:26:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
I don't understand how these things get so blown out of proportion.

I have been coming here for two or three years and I am opinionated and stubborn and mouthy, but in this entire time I have made 1 (one) potential enemy, and that only lasted for one day. Unless there are people out there that just avoid me, and don't speak up. Which I guess in the long run is a good way to handle it.

It just boggles my mind how intense some of these slanderous sessions get, and how personal!

The truth is, with very very few exceptions, we have never met face to face.

Not only should that prompt us to be more tolerant, but it should also prompt us to be less sensitive. How hard is it to say...

"That's your opinion."

sdg    Posted 12-03-2004 at 07:28:47       [Reply]  [No Email]
Amen Cindi.

Cindi    Posted 12-03-2004 at 07:37:51       [Reply]  [No Email]

The problem is, when people start attacking each other, they force others to avoid speaking to either of them. Who can keep track of who is fighting with who? And what happens if you respond to one of the fighters and not the others? It implies allegiance which may not necessarily be the case. Which drags everybody into it. Which is...a drag.

I miss a lot of the fighting because I avoid it, then I come in here and there is tension and I don't know who to talk to and who not to talk to. That's why a lot of times I only post a story and respond to those who respond to the story. It seems like a selfish thing to do but it feels like the only safe way not to pizz anybody off at me.

If I talk to burrhead then I pizz clod off, or vice-versa, if I talk to clipper then I see what I mean? It's far too much work for what is supposed to be entertainment.

Patria    Posted 12-03-2004 at 10:40:56       [Reply]  [No Email]
We know what you mean.
And like I said in a thread that was deleted last week...I hate this gang mentality... I will not sponsor it. Neither should of all people? :-)

Cindi    Posted 12-03-2004 at 13:24:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
Me? How do you mean?

Ohhh...    Posted 12-03-2004 at 13:27:45       [Reply]  [No Email]
...are you talking about the bone picking forum? Well that wasn't an effort to sponsor it. It was an effort to redirect it.

I figured that eventually the only people who went there would be the ones who needed to hash some things out. With no censors and no holds barred. Which is pretty much what happened. And over here, we're talking about our kids and avacadoes and listening to Christmas music.

Like God, my mind works in mysterious ways. But my heart was in the right place.

oh my God nooo!!    Posted 12-03-2004 at 15:15:00       [Reply]  [No Email]

no no no..

you said: -"then I come in here and there is tension and I don't know who to talk to and who not to talk to."-

The way I see it, you shouldn't have to worry about something like that..or nobody should, for that matter. The educated posters, friends of yours, or otherwise, will not hold it against you if you replied to someone they don't approve of. For the rest? aahh..let it be their problem.
Or am I living in the clouds!LOL

sdg    Posted 12-03-2004 at 08:41:23       [Reply]  [No Email]
I think that's why I don't usually post to much on here. I'm always looking thru out the day, but I have a bad habit of saying what I'm thinking, so I don't post to much. But i think you hit the nail right on the head.. And by the way, I sure do enjoy your storys. I write, but not like that....Oh and if you want some snow, I'd be more than happy to send you some. lol

Cindi    Posted 12-03-2004 at 08:58:35       [Reply]  [No Email]
Reckon UPS could get it here before it gets soupy?

Thanks sdg. What do you write?

sdg    Posted 12-03-2004 at 11:54:43       [Reply]  [No Email]

To apologize is not a fault,not to forgive is a shame. Clipper I feel much more comfortable now posting to folks here and Tales boards now that the elections are over.Stick to your guns and if nobody wants to have a confab with you thats ok,me I just keep trying.:)

Hang in there. Some people derive a great deal of personal pleasure by slandering others. I've never figured out why, but the just do. I've always surmised that it is to lessen their feelings of inferiority. (Knock others down below their own level) Some are just plain ol' "mean spirited". Just kick a guy while he's down. And others are exibiting their poor sense of humor. (It was funny, in a certain sort of way, for about 2 days)

Now it is time to move on. I applaud your efforts to deal with the situation. Stick to it. I'm quite sure you will here more.

I saw a quote the other day that I will paraphrase. My friends know the truth, and my enemies don't care about that truth.

Good luck. John

Well, I read down a little further, and now I know where I saw that quote I mis-quoted. You got it right Clipper. John
