Watchman - too quick you read, too quick you reply, too quick you question your own convictions. And good ones in part imho

We are not here to individually say what is acceptable or not, just express our opinion. And politely, which you just did. You are right about not bringing Christianity into a music forum, except for the well-balanced talk we had the other day about Gord and religion. Many good differing points of view.

Do you know, if you re-read my longer letter above to you, and just edited, that of all the personal appeals to you, complimenting where you were right about your critique of my writing style, etc... let's be friends, handshake ?, etc, did u not hear ? do you not listen do u not care ? u are right - decent kind behavior transcends religion, and i swallowed my pride to help get u back in this room. I guess it was falling on deaf, and yes, still angry ears. Angry at others perhaps, but still too angry.


one more time - way back - u were right sorta, i HAVE improved, and even after almost groveling to be friendly you mention nothing of all this ? well.. excdept for saying all this PM'ing having nothing to do with me. guess i am not one of the players. hmmm don't know if i want to be.

there are some damn good people left in here, and your talk smacks of paranoia - classic. i challenge you to re-assess yourself, your anger, and your dictums as if your opinions were axioms. sorry.. it dont work that way. but still.... i offer at least one fresh start and friendly exchange from here on out.

You man enough to admit you just have emotions too ? Let it go. And please - don't tal about me as if i were a third party missive. You don't yet see what a good guy you are yet. Screw "branding" of me - and you I say to you friend - go with God. Therein lies OUR solace.
peace be with you Watchman - Steve

I do hope that anyone beginning to explore the Lightfoot library is not mislead by such nonsense.

Boy.......that was weird.....

RMD
This is exactly the type of thing I'm talking about. How do you know that Suberman is the same person that created the Lightfoot page? What the heck? Because Suberman has this Lightfoot page in his friends list? Heck, Mary is listed as my 1st friend does this mean I'm Mary? Maybe I am Mary. I've been her all along. Yep, at the Lightfoot concert that was really TheWatchman!! I was only acting like man all this time. And as far as my MySpace page, I just yanked a pic of some dude off of Google and used it.

Geeze people, please, stop this constant conspiracy theory garbage. Who care's if it's true anyway? It's not like DMD3 is the CEO of Enron! Man oh man.

This is the exact reason why I didn't respond to your entire post earlier. Although you extend your hand to me, you also speak to me with a forked tongue. People who do this, I have no use for. I have no idea what you edited in or out of that post, and frankly, I don't care.

Do not come to me as a friend and at the same time throw your little darts at me. I'm not paranoid, read the above thread dude. Being firm and unwavering is not being angry. You can be firm, unwavering and angry all at the same time, but just because you are firm and unwavering does not mean your angry.

You obviously are though because it seems to have messed up your typing. Relax.

To Watchman,

You are absolutely correct in scolding me for attributing the Lightfoot link on Suberman's page to him/her personally. I have no idea of its origins.

That being said, however, I do believe that a true Lightfoot fan would not allow such tripe to clutter their page.

I stand corrected and at ease.

As an old AMLer I'm having a very difficult time reading some of the previous self-absorbed, narcisistic postings, and believing what I'm reading. I will not single anyone out because there are several and it would serve no purpose. I just gotta ask, are we grown ups or a bunch of little kids?

Is it the hotter weather? Months with no Lightfoot?

And speaking of Lightfoot I think he'd be appalled with many involved with this group.

What brings us together is our love of all things Lightfoot. Perhaps we can let that love reflect in a way that is positive.

If you can't, than perhaps you can live by what our mothers told us: "If you can't something nice about somone, don't say anything at all"

Doing something I rarely do here, but want to say this much:

I have always found Watchman to be upfront in his posts, no matter his opinion. This is a man with whom you can go toe to toe, and he'll respect you for that. I KNEW he would never have made a comment to Steve to hurt. I took it as a jest, and knew that Watchman had no knowledge of circumstances.

The forum would have been much better served, as would the people involved, if someone had taken time to privately let Watchman know. Instead, it was a free for all on him.

I miss Watchman being a part of this forum, and don't think things improved one iota with his leaving.

They've become worse. And Char has become a babysitter and constant dispute settler. Ridiculous position for her to be put in.

With so many on here, and so many differing views and opinions, things are bound to get heated now and then. What Al said about not making it personal or taking things personally says it all. Definitely a good watch phrase and perhaps a call to common sense as opposed to arms. And though not everyone is going to agree or get along with each other, that shouldn't preclude having an open mind or at least some tolerance and understanding of human nature.

Too much infighting is poisoning the site.

Al, may I point out my prolific and correct use of capitalization
Just a little token of my appreciation in seeing you posting again..however short lived it may be.
If you decide not to continue posting, do come back and rattle the cage at least occasionally... please!

Also, perhaps the longest post I have ever made...must be the percoset my dentist prescribed...(I would have preferred some of the pills in the pic posted above...)

I can see Lightfoot being appalled for copywrite infringement, but I just can't him caring at all about the bickering. Selling is entirely different than fans trading or sharing. Maybe I'm wrong though.
From my experience in speaking with Gordon I feel as though he couldn't possibly care less about the bickering, etc. He already has a negative attitude about the Internet. Besides, he's had so much turmoil in his own personal life that this stuff wouldn't even register.

I know that copyright infringements upset him a great deal. And he would certainly understand fans trading rare items that aren't availavle on the mainstream market. No harm there. But he would be beyond livid if he were to discover that someone is not only impersonating him on the Internet but also communicating with his fans. The person responsible will rue the day they put that profile up should he ever discover it. The fur will fly. (IMO)

Watchman/Al - I was sad to read that you would have never hassled Steve about not using paragraphs had you known he had a brain injury. He does not owe you an excuse or a reason for not using paragraphs. He was not attempting to provoke anyone. He was simply trying his best to communicate. Why was that not good enough for you?

Did the Spelling Police come along to publicly ridicule you for not correctly spelling "CopyRIGHT"? No. So let's just accept each others' quirks & foibles. He's made several attempts to reach out to you in a genuine spirit of forgiveness and friendship. I'm sad to see you couldn't be more gracious about it.

Nice posts, Steve. You are a very BIG man. I admire your courage and determination.

Great, we agree on that. My question was rhetorical. Besides, you all have aired his "turmoil" too many times to count.

Why would that make you sad? So, you would rather I "hassle" Steve knowing full well that he had a brain injury? That's sick. Move on.

What planet are you from? Seriously, come back down to earth and put down the crack pipe. You are putting words into my mouth which I do not appreciate. Head games, stop playing them please. Again, re-read my posts once you put your crack pipe down.

Spelling police no, but I was corrected. Even if somebody said "get the dictionary Watchman! You spelled it wrong you moron!" I would laugh and say, crap, I did spell it wrong. Besides, in the past, I HAVE BEEN SCOLDED FOR MISSPELLING THINGS and I never made an issue out of it because it's no big deal! I've been called much worse things here than a moron. I been told much worse things then quoting the dictionary too. Good grief man, give it up.

Misty, as long as you are going to put words into my mouth, which is a form of lying as far as I'm concerned, I will not continue with any further communications with you. Grow up and learn to read.

Mary/someday/changes:

You were banned from this website months ago.

You clearly "unblocked" Char just long enough to fire off more venom.

I've never addressed this issue before. As you know I liked you very, very much in the beginning, Mary. I was fully supportive of you & concerned about all your many personal dramas/issues. My heart truly went out to you. And I was thrilled when you where able to meet & spend time with Gordon. WE ALL WERE. (very much so and that's the truth no matter what your "true friend" said)

Until I saw you foolishly fall victim to the one person here with a long-standing personal agenda/vendetta against Char. You were new here so you, of course, had no clue. What began as your possible concern about being suddenly "ignored" by other members quickly became hurt feelings. And with that this certain member began fanning the flames until your hurt feelings exploded into paranoia and rage.

You weren't "ignored" Mary. But I did notice that in your happy enthusiasm you posted dozens of topics, per day, all about your personal life AND those of your friends. You posted about the many aspects of each and EVERY one of your days... Such as discovering CAD systems, etc. It was just exhausting to keep up with so after a while people just backed off. If you look at this site we don't get very much into each other's personal lives EVERY SINGLE DAY. And we don't start several topics, per day, about each and every day of our existence. Personally, I just lost interest in your topics but I thought, "Oh, she's new.. she has to learn on her own. It's cool. Just give her time to learn on her own through her own experience." I know lots of people here and everyone liked you. I had just assumed they, like me, shyed away from so many personal topics each day.

And someone saw your vulnerability and made full use of it. You were used to create turmoil here. It worked. Please do some serious soul searching about this. Because you do not want to continue your life being used like this. It makes you a Fool.

I've known Char for 6 years and I've seldom known a person with a kinder, more supportive and generous heart than hers. Mary - you broadsided her in a very big way. She was totally clueless by your attacks. And no one deserved this less than her.

On Judgement Day you will know the truth and be so very ashamed of yourself & mortified by your ignorant stupidity. Because you were "had" by a viscious person an innocent person was harmed in the process.

So I can no longer be supportive of you in any way. You have, yet again, taken it "too far."

MistyMoppens,

Just in case you missed it...in one of his postings Watchman rightfully criticized me for "jumping to conclusions" (a cliche, not his words).

But I will maintain that one would have to be either ignorant, careless, naive or duplicitous to allow the appearance that Lightfoot is appealing to the MySpace community for friends.

Know your friends,

RMD

hey bill... i'm here finally!

hey al... good to see you posting!.

back to the original topic of images:

i'm not supposed to be looking at "non work related stuff" in the department. i still do it though!. if its just text, who knows what you're reading? - could be work related. so i try and do it quickly. in A LOT of cases, while i'm quickly flicking through text on this site, a huge picture will suddenly take over the screen as it loads up. then i have to quickly do the alt-tab job to another screen... still its enough for people to see, i'm dodging something shifty!

i agree there are too many non-gord related images posted.

as for the board in general, compared to some message boards i visit, this one is quite ok. i'm a three stooges fan - on that forum, the moderators will ban you if you dont use capital letters or proper punctuation!

on dylanpool, you can get away with any political/religious insults and use whatever language you want

thats my 2 cents worth...

over to you, borderstone! :D

Nice, Char is deleting my posts now. Looks like somebody doesn't like to look in the mirror. I would never "rat" anybody out, but at the same time, wanted to put an end to the psychobabble and hypocrasy. I see he deleted his post, but since I quoted him, his nonsense still remained so the only way to get rid of his garbage, you deleted my posts for him. Too bad he had to stick his nose into something that he knew nothing about. I don't fault him for that, but he shouldn't have come into this the way that he did.

My initial post was a "if the shoe fits, wear it" kind of thing. Some of you jumped right in and put the shoes on, which surprised me because the people whom my return was directed at, haven't posted yet, nor will they. Their like rats scattering to the bushes when they see headlights.

I left this site but it wasn't enough for some of you. So you had to continue to talk trash behind my back which is normally fine. But you couldn't just leave it there you had to bring my beliefs into the picture once again and then put me into one of your little theories of who is who on corfid and who's friends with you. So damn childish but again, trash my beliefs and my ears perk up. This time I felt the need to set the record straight.

More than one cofidian has started posts out to me talking trash and then say, "can we be friends? I'm offering this to you and I'm offering that to you." Come on, get a life.

One good thing, you all seem to be getting along a lot better now. I told you the common enemy thing would work! Don't worry, I'm not here to post in the latest riddle solver thread.

I've said all that I have to say, but if any of you continue with garbage posts to me, I will respond this time.
