How to make friends and influence people?

Thats my question. I dont appear to have endered (sp) myself to members here since recently joining and I do appear to be unintentionally winding up Mods (soz BC).

I am not a self publicist as some have suggested as I dont have anything to self publicise (if that makes sense).

Anyway, any probs let me know as discussion always sorts it out in the end.

Cheers all the best.

i've noticed you and thought you were actually pretty cool. i was just (not 10 minutes ago) silently applauding your post on hooliganism vs racism in that soccer thread. some fym folk make me want to run a sharp knife through lifesized voodoo dolls, but you were like a ray of sunlight.

please, keep it up!

I quoted you as I wanted to say the same thing to CK.

Then I also wanted to say to him that you couldn't please everyone. It was unrelated to your quote, sorry.

I just keep my head down here, post if I feel like it, sometimes I won't post for a few weeks or months. Sometimes I think there can be a lot of ganging up on individuals and bad feeling on forums and I don't understand that, it seems like a waste of time.

My suggestion would be to read and get to know people for a while before you just jump in and start posting. Get an understanding to what this place is about, the people, the rules, etc.

Believe me I have checked out the rules. They look lovely.

I dont feel comfortable standing back and ignoring threads I think I can or I would like to contribute to. Soz its just not me.

My views are my views and are unlikely to change just because I know one person better than another.

The site captures a main interest of mine, U2, it then has loads of other discussions about everything from relationship problems to what colour to paint your house to political debate to racism etc. It also had a sense of freedom about it in relation to all the different types of discussions and with Freedom of Speech being such a fundamental part of the free world I was impressed by that.

My paranoia had me doubting this but then it is removed when I read comments like those in here from Angela and Lara.

I try to get down my view in the appropriate forum and try, genuinely, not to break any rules.

Text is of course without feeling so sometimes a discussion should be detailed to clarify differences of opinion or clarify issues.

At the end of the day (the stars come out and it gets very very dark) we all have different views, ideas, interests and as long as they are not imposed or insulting to others I don't see why such freedom cannot remain.

This site is very open-minded.. and for the most part, people are more than welcome to share their views, opinions, stories, etc. Hell, you can even swear here However, please dont assume that 'freedom of speech' means you can run wild and say or do whatever you want. It really doesnt apply here. This is an internet site, a privately owned one at that. If your 'freedom of speech' breaks the rules, we reserve the right to kick you out of here.

Just relax, enjoy yourself, make some friends and have a great time. Personally I have made some absolutely wonderful friends here, many whom I have grown to spend time with in real life. This place can be really amazing sometimes.
