Geezus.. Again my friend, you've missed my point, I was using Lilly as a reference.. Nothing more there.. And I was stating the exact same thing about Popangel that someone in this exact same thread I think posted about Diamond by Angela Harlem.. Except for the fact that Diamond is much more a contributor to this forum.. aka less of a troll.. Just citing with a 'well said' or what not.. If you're going to drop that shit on me, at least keep yourself to honorable standards and credibility and do it to everyone guilty of that sin.. I'll be awaiting a following post chastising the other guilty party.

Or is this just more of this vendetta that you like to find anything I write and have to insult my intelligence.

This thread, from it's initial post to all the ugliness after it, is exactly why I usually stay out of Free Your Mind.

And since when did Bubba become The Voice Of All Conservatives? Cause that's definitely what it seems like. You disagree with Bubba and suddenly you can't possibly be conservative, you must be liberal.

Quite frankly, the application of such black and white borders (and the people who strictly apply them) between political fronts is frightening to me. All this "the other side is WRONG," or "we are RIGHT" being thrown around by both sides is really annoying, not to mention disheartening. It's sad to know that some people honestly believe that conservatives are inherently dangerous and out to control our lives, or liberals are all just tree-hugging yuppies who just want everyone to be happy regardless of the consequences.

We're not all that different, people.

Lemonite, here's a whole lemon tree for ya babe.
I dont think anyone is a troll here, not Lilly, not Popgirlie, and not Mr Diamond. I was simply stating that I'd like to see more of Mr Diamond's thoughts, rather than replies to the negative on the issues discussed. But he replied that he is a busy man.

We all know a lack of regular contribution does not mean an ignorance of what's going on.

I was just using you as an example to zone.. and I wasn't calling Lilly a troll I don't know why you included her.. that's all.. no 'direct or indirect attacks', Just calling zone out.

You know this whole forum is going to hell. The reason i started posting in this forum is because the debate was good the people were nice and things didnt go on for months on end.

Bubba, go away. You became very deluded in recent months. Melon, shut up. No when to just walk away. 80's. Well i think everyone should take a look at him. He has always been a great debater and very respectable. Me and him have disagreed many times but have become friends because of it.

Has anyone ever heard for respecting others opinions? Well lets all start doing that.

You obviously do not get it CL! Has Lilly posted in this thread calling someone a dumb fuck? DO NOT use Lilly as an example anymore - especially in alternate threads. Drop that point. NOW! You are using her as an example, and for what reason I don't know. Can you explain why you have to pull this reference out in this thread?

I know Lilly personally, and she is a very intelligent and witty young lady with a great sarcastic sense of humor.

Next up, the defense of LarryMullen's POPAngel: Yet another person I have met and speak to quite a bit. You are calling her a troll - DO NOT DENY THAT - it is stated above - and quite clearly. Do not go and try to edit it that out.

I believe the reason she does not post in this FYM is because of people like YOU. She simply stated her opinion - which happened to be previously stated by someone else. No need to repost the same thing, right? And what do you do? Call her posts of an Internet icon. I'm sorry if you think the FYM is an exclusive forum where people cannot come and agree with someone in one thread. Again, people don't come in her because of that reason - your crappy attitude to posters. But I will stand up to your crap, and hopefully make you smell what your stepping in.

I'm off to bake you a pie....

Wow some really smart person wrote that!

Seriously, I know that people some times want to clarify points that a reader may have missed the 1st time round and thats cool. I know that anger and frustration can also get in the way when we reply.
I'm sorry I mentioned other users in my reply earlier, its something we prolly shouldn't do.
But lets all be nice ok? Half the reason we all post here is to get a different opinion.

Hahaha.. Kid, I hope you are getting some sort of satisfaction out of this,

Anyways, I've stated this above, in posts.. I referenced Both PopAngel's and Lilly's Posts as examples of Similar situations to the one Diamond the U2 Patriot was Lambasted for.. That's all.. How you think it's inappropriate to reference out of posts is absurd, It's done frequently here. I was just saying that Diamond's Lambastation was not necessary due to the precedents of Lilly's and Popangel's posts in the same vain receiving no 'criticism'. I was not insulting anyone, just using them as reference.

Hahaha.. Again, you quote me to try and 'Dare' me to deny something?.. Uh.. Ok... Calling popangel a 'troll' only refers to the fact that the majority of times I see her come here and post it's some sort of post that is 'Well Said', or 'That's the Best Thing I've Read All Day', Not posts that delve into the issues.. Almost just resembling a 'cheerleader'.. Warranted... Troll seems to carry a negative connotation, but I was just calling it as I see it.

You say that Popangel simply stated an opinion that someone else wrote and therefore did not need to write it all over again.. Well.. Like I've written above, Diamond did the exact same thing, but when Diamond did it, it was received with a 'Stop Shoving your Head Up Bubba's Ass and Come in With Your Own Quotes'.. Again, just pointing out the contradiction.

I think you're lost on this one, You are missing the point, you're taking what I've written as insults than just a call for equality on someone's 'Shit' They dropped without real necessity.. Or even if it was warranted, I don't see the same thing happening to other posts of the same Vain.

Also, You are referencing the fact that you have 'met' these people in real life. Uh... again, That has nothing to do with anything, This isn't real life.. I think Holy John got it best a while back in a thread when he was talking about why he doesn't always come in here cuz 'Real Life' Doesn't happen in here.. Don't bring it in where it has no application.. Someone's character has nothing to do with posts.. Sarcastic sense of humor or not... Beautiful Singing voice or not..

You sound as if you're feeling like a 'BadAss' for 'standing up to me'.. Apparently you think all posts are serious and have no room for sarcasm or non-serious ripping.. Well.. Kudos to you, I hope it makes you happy as you devote a large amount of time to it and only it.

Love,
L.Unplugged

Melon, sorry i did not mean this as a attack. More of a friend telling a friend when to shut up. i agree with most of your views and i think you do debate in good fashion. I just meant you know how to push buttons and are so good at it. Sometimes the best thing is to just walk away.

Spoken like a true mediator. It's comments like this that I cannot walk away from. This forum has become little more than a place for personal attacks and fanaticism, with little to do with actual debate.

And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

Ah...I understand. Sorry if I went off a bit on you. But you're right, really, and I've decided to back off on this forum a bit, concentrating more on my art and writing. I'm happily reinspired to do both, and likely more productive than ranting to an internet forum.

Again?

Please try to stick to it this time.
I know you'll be happier.

And Lemonite, I dont see anything wrong with someone *thumbs -uping* a post that they agree with.. (cant remember who said that) in some situations... why take the time to write out the same response if you agree with everything the person said?

*SigH*... Sicy.. Where are you coming from?.. You are missing the point, or purposefully redirecting it.. I myself was not trying to say that you 'can't' post a thumbs up icon.. Geezus.. that sounds absurd.. I've done posts in that vain before.. All I was saying is that when Diamond did it.. Diamond was Jumped on and Deboweled by Angela Harlem.. Sooo... I Just asked the Question.. 'Why Not, Angela.. Write the exact same thing about Popangel'.. I wasn't insulting her at all, I was just asking why the double standard?.. she did the exact same thing as Diamond.. That's all.. Please don't assume my position, or lecture me on something that is in a wayward direction from what I am saying. This is ridiculous that it takes so much to make such a small yet Obviously double standardish Point.
