    Thumbs down When is enough enough?


    It has become increasingly easy for users to demonise someone and basically they will attack each and every post turning every conversation onto rant.

    When is enough enough? I can no longer write freely I can no longer enjoy the forum and I believe that I am not just speaking for myself and if I am so be it. I think a lot of people would agree that there was a time where things where nice but not anymore.

    If I am to blame then so be it ban me and get it over with. But we have to tolerate discrimination, hate speech and demoralizing debates each and every time we log on then I see no point in doing so.

    These people will shoot down anything and everything always trying to provoke and I must say they are very successful at it. But why is it us that get silent and not them?

    Clearly a decision was made and I guess if we donít conform we will continue to be victimized to a degree that a letter like this is called for.

    I am seriously done trying to fight against 3 or more individuals that just want to twist and make bad everything we write. Truth is freedom of speech and opinion is one thing but attacking someone outright to a degree that we have to resort to the same tactics is beyond my comprehension.

    I am not here to fight everyday but they demand it and they donít get warned or anything. So now I leave Admin with this letter. I may be the first but I will not be the only. There will be others that feel this beyond debate.

    There are many examples that I am not going to list them all but I feel there is enough there to see who starts the fight. Yes I donít tolerate discrimination or hate speech especially if people will go as far as to dehumanize someone. So I leave this in your hands... Ban me if you want things will go well for a while till they find the next person they don't agree with.

    Do what you wish I am done.

    OK - here's a suggestion -

    Try to post in any particular thread a maximum of twice a day.
    I suspect you'll be surprised at the difference it will make.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    You have done nothing to earn my respect.

    In fact please come and chill in the ‘old school music is cool thread,’ anytime you like. You’ll find it refreshingly different! And remember you get to decide to what post you want to respond to or simply let the passage of time(excuse the pun..it's the prescription thing!) let that post gather dust

    You and you alone decide how you going to react. Noone can actually extort a reaction or response from you!

    If you don't react to certain posts and simply do your thing and make your contribution then it's actually of no significant consequence that anybody else is indifferent.

    There's so many different forum aspects to TFSA, i'm only beginning to explore them and I like what I see. Simply explore the so many other rooms in this big house, hell, I'm going to!


    Abraham Lincoln said "A house divided against itself cannot stand." TFSA is one house, it’s one organisation that you are all members of. Use the tools at your disposal that TFSA offers to make whatever meaningful contribution you wish you make, and I personally know that you can make a great contribution as you have always been doing.

    Why not set up a specific thread each day, to let off steam. With Dave's permission, of course.

    Example :

    The rant at hijacking of SA's new school education system thread?

    People start a thread, hoping to extract good ideas & engage others of like mind in doing so.
    A few decent posts - the rest degrades into a mine's longer than yours contest.
    Blah.. blah... blah...
    Some folks have absolutely no manners
    Blah.. blah... blah...
    Kicked the dog, he bit me back
    Blah... blah... blah...
    Too bad that SA's next generations will end up eating sand.
    Blah... blah... blah...

    Feel so much better now!!!
