I know i am "newbie-esk" but I want to add..

I don't really know if you want or care what my opinion is. I just wanted to say that I see your point on both the friend and old school issues. I don't think anyone likes when there friends are jacked with. I am sorry you do not like where the forum has gone either. I was not here "back in the day" so I do not know what it was like, but I can see how you would miss it if there was a better sense of family and closeness as you say. Who would not miss that.

Hi Dethveggy, nice to see you back.

I don't think that's the reason Khanada... I don't even know Dr. Gonzo is banned! (maybe I'm a bit insensitive... ) Maybe people didn't notice the post... maybe... Hm... I don't know.

Back to the 'newbie getting offensed' problem. I think it's the sense of humour of some of the 'old school' interferencers is a bit too difficult and too sacastic to understand if the reader didn't be here long enough. You can't deny that some of the comments they made are quite offensive if they're being taken too seriously!

Sorry, but i don't buy the "old posters should be respected, but newbies should keep it quiet" attitude.

For starters, everyone should be treated with respect - and it goes both ways: just as an "oldie" will come up with a good thread, so can a newbie. Personally i try to reply (or at least) read at the most interesting thread regardless of the author.

Oh and IMO bear was out of line in the PLEBA incident. I'm aware that bear will always be bear and that he has a special way of thoughts - but that is no excuse to go and push people's buttons.

IMO some more, i think that "show some respect" demand can come off arrogant to some people. You don't just go out and say "Here i am, now everyone respect me". Respect is earned, it can't be just granted on demand.
I'd rather be respected for something good/nice/smart i said, not because i'm a veteran or older than some posters.

oh, and thanks for your valuable opinion. everyone crosses the line at one point or another, and you are definately no exception.

i will not even touch the pleba matter at this time due to a recent promise.

as for the whole newbie issue, wanderer hit the nail right on the head with the analogy of newbies being as unispiring as u2's latest album.

luckily however, u2 is coming out with a new album next year, by the looks of things.

sorry veggy, i really cannot let lose at this time, cause i dont really want to be banned. forgive me.

thanks for the nice words though, much appreciated.

Oh now, what's the matter? Can't handle the truth?

True - i am no exception, that's why i know what i'm talking about. But unlike you, i changed and i stopped pissing people off.

You yourself said "i'll tone it down" and took back what you said - so you do realise you were wrong. It's not like it's the first time people have a problem with your posts.

You know, people who don't agree with you are allowed to have opinions, too.

working for a newspaper, i know how to distort the truth better than anyone else.

you stopped pissing people off?

i did not take back what i said. i barely even apologized. i simply said i was finished discussing the matter. i did not backtrack, i simply halted my offensive, and i will continue to do so, for i do not need to make the moderators anymore work. theyre good people.

if people dont have a problem with my posts, then im not being very effective am i? everyone needs an enemy so that there can be a hero.

without hero's wed never have chad krueger singing about them, and heaven knows how awful that would be.

When you come to any new place, there should be a time period where you are a little more deferential. That's all. I don't like people harrassing friends of mine. I also don't like the way everyone is fragmented.

I'm really not trying to sound negative, but It does bother me that the place I loved so much has turned into something so big it's unrecognizable. It limits what I can say b/c before, people would get the joke; now, it's more that likely if I posted as I did before, people would either flame me or complain. And I don't like that...maybe I just miss the closeness of it all.

And to all my friends out there, Hi! I missed you all. Nellie, Brettig, Sula, Calluna and Sicy-I'm glad to see you all. Hope you're all well!
allright, that's fair enough, but unfortunately with this place as big as it is, the "inside jokes" that you may share may accross as offensive or whatever... I do agree that EVERYONE needs to be a little more tolerant and less "my sh@% doesn't stink" like. WE are all a part of a community here, and just because it's large, the largeness doesn't mean we can't all be close. I think we should have a big group hug!!!!! I think that given time, any member gets to be better understood, the problen often times is that newer members are afraid to express themselves for fear of being discredited or put down solely based on their "newbie status" which isn't fair. anyway, hope we can be friends dethveggy!!!!!!

First of all, I am suprised at the strong showing of Dutch Prime Minister Wim Kok...VERY suprised. He is the coolest ever European Leader named Wim.

I can agree with some of what is being said about how respect is earned, but then, there is the age old adage of "Respect Your Elders"....

And hey, I understand that my bizarre sense of humor and outwardly violent rants can turn people off, but hey, it's all in fun. And how much fun would a Veggy post be without some weird rant or quasi-offensive-to-someone diatribe? It's all about the fun. It's not serious. Did anyone here really think I would take it out on Montreal should I be elected "Most Popular?

Nah...

Oh, and Chicago? I will be there if someone wants to tell me where and when. After all, I own Chicago. It's me hometown!
