I think its high time that I tell you all how much I love this forum and all the people who post on it. I really believe that we have the best forum on the internet period. The people are all friendly and helpful, and they make excellent friends, we can have good and indepth discussions at length about anything and everything.

This place is something special and everyone who participates here is a blessing in some for or other.
:happy:

I hate to have my first post start this way, but here goes.

"I really believe that we have the best forum on the internet period."

While I have enjoyed reading here, I have never felt comfortable posting because I have seen the gang mentality in action here when one goes against the grain.

I have lurked here for probably over a year at least and have seen so much that has made me bite my tongue. I have seen posts deleted because the authors views didn't coincide with the moderators and things to that effect.

I have seen people banned for differing views, especially if one doesn't follow lock-step and love Bush and Christianity.

I could hold back no more, and apologize if I have offended anyone. I'm just calling it like I see it.

Oh Yeah, Looking forward to Matt's next fight. Go Matt!

Welcome!
I actually have VERY different opinions then most of my forum brothers and sisters, as do quite a few other folks on hear. despite a few heated occassions I've always been treated with respect as long as (and this is key) I've been respectful to others.
A bit of adivice that has worked for me recently is to: stay out of threads that you forsee yourself being upset in. Nobody's going to apologize for being a Christian or holding certain political beliefs. We are fans of Matt and that is the important thing here. hang out and talk MMA and get to know everyone, you'll change your mind!

Won the bet. Thanks VCU. I bet a friend that I would be called a name within 2 hours after I posted. That was easy money and affirmed what I thought. It's actually sad that you had to resort to name calling. You wouldn't stand a chance in a forum that allows people to have differing opinions.

I know what you're talking about but it's not entirely true. I go against the grain quite often and they don't attack me. You can voice your own, differing opinions. You just can't do it in an attacking sort of way. That's when the "gang" gets defensive. Give it a try. I think you'll be fine.

Also, that "gang mentality" will exist on whatever forum you go to. I've been a member of more than 10 forums over the last 7 years and they're all the same in general (even though the theme of each forum varies widely). There is a consensus view and anyone who doesn't agree with that view is not going to fit in completely.

However, there are also the forums that are unmoderated and degrade to nothing but chaos. Those don't serve any purpose but to give keyboard warriors an exaggerated sense of self-importance.

This is Matt's website, thus people are not going to be allowed to insult Matt on it. It would be ridiculous to assume otherwise. Also, Matt wants there to be a definite conservative Christian theme to this site. People are allowed to have opposing views, but they need to be respectful with how they present those views. Because we are essentially on Matt's property when we are here.

You wouldn't stand a chance in a forum that allows people to have differing opinions.

You probably need to define what you mean by "have differing opinions." You claim to have been lurking here for over a year, but you obviously haven't been paying that close of attention. We have plenty of liberals and Obama-supporters who post here regularly.

Saying something like "I support Obama and I think he's doing a good job," is fine. Be prepared to defend you definition of "good job," but you're not going to get banned for that statement.

Saying, "I support Obama and anyone who doesn't is just a racist," is NOT acceptable. You still won't get banned for that, but you'll likely get a warning or just have that particular statement deleted.

Do you understand the difference?

Bite me!Haha, ease up, dude! I called you a moron originally because you came into a thread that was supposed to be about friends being thankful for each other & instead you went the exact opposite direction & bashed everyone here. I guess that "moron" wasn't the correct term. I believe "troll" is the more technical term.

The second time, I was joking around. My friend Dawn made fun of me for calling you a moron, so I was owning up to what I said. Honestly, if you're going to get this upset in a thread which, despite your best efforts, is still overwhelming dominated by friends joking with each other, then I would suggest you leave. You wouldn't stand a chance in a forum that allows people to have friends.

Just about every single post you've made in this thread has had an insult buried in it somewhere. Maybe there is a reason why you don't feel welcome here, you're obviously only interested in stirring the pot.

If that's how you and your friends have fun on the internet, then fine. However, this is simply NOT the place for it, go stir up trouble somewhere else. And no, I'm not banning you. I'm just notifying you that you are free to express yourself here as long as you are respectful of other's opinions (the simple fact that you are still posting here is proof that all of your criticisms are wrong), you're also free to go somewhere else.

I do agree with you on one thing, though, this thread's subject is dumb; but I'm just used to this lame touchy-feely crap from Dave. :rolleyes:

Have you ever noticed that almost all of your sentences have a break in them with a comma? :huh: At least it is only one comma though. And caps, those are nice. :)

Won the bet. Thanks VCU. I bet a friend that I would be called a name within 2 hours after I posted. That was easy money and affirmed what I thought. It's actually sad that you had to resort to name calling. You wouldn't stand a chance in a forum that allows people to have differing opinions.
Just how long have you actually Lurked...because it seems to me you dont know much about this place. You certainly dont know much about the Moderators if you think we act as a united gang all the time. We dont even all agree on certain things that are posted by ourselves.

...and if you think this is cheap...you should have been here three years ago. You see, rather then introduce yourself and make friends, you take some foolish bet and try to manipulate us, by calling me out. Thats disrespectful, thats not going to instantly make you many friends...so dont go crying when people ignore you or dissagree with you...perhaps if you hadnt made such a militant begining, you might actually have friends already. :mellow:

Tyburn
02-26-2009, 01:12 PM
C'mon son, didn't you feel the love when I said bite me? You called me a moron twice.

How you can equate my first post with bashing everyone on this forum is amazing. You should ask VCU for a refund. :wink:

I can handle forums where friends congregate, though I feel that this forum is a bit too censored to allow a full expression of ideas. I can understand, I don't pay for the bandwidth here. In other forums that I participate in, the censors allow differing opinions on all subjects. When I wish to discuss certain topics, I will go there instead. I'll invite you if you so wish.

To the rest of the forum, my apologies again if I offended you.
Because it was a thread for Regular Forum Patrons, NOT lurkers, for an outsider to squash and gatecrash a thread out of the blue and call out someone who before the Forum Switch had 33K (sorry Michelle :unsure-1: :laugh: ) Posts and say you think you know better, disrespectfully, and rudely and wonder why your met with a luke warm reaction...now THAT is amazing :laugh:

If you dont want to discuss things here, go elsewhere. Noone cares, and noone will hold it against you. :rolleyes:

...and yes, consider me greatly offended :angry:

Tyburn
02-26-2009, 01:14 PM
The problem is that you are taking my words and twisting them to suit your own agenda. I have seen the gang mentality of certain members. I have seen posts deleted. I have seen people banned for reasons that made me laugh. Do you deny that any of this has ever occurred on this forum?
Name them...or else what you just said is Slander.

Can't believe this one's still going.

All I have to say is, if they haven't banned me yet - then they're not so bad. I've practically posted porn on this Christian dominated forum. Granted it was of myself and some of the female moderators appreciated it. Maybe that's what got me the pass. :)

Buzzard's tone seems to have lightened as the discussion moved on. I think he's warming up to us.

I hate to have my first post start this way, but here goes.

"I really believe that we have the best forum on the internet period."

While I have enjoyed reading here, I have never felt comfortable posting because I have seen the gang mentality in action here when one goes against the grain.

I have lurked here for probably over a year at least and have seen so much that has made me bite my tongue. I have seen posts deleted because the authors views didn't coincide with the moderators and things to that effect.

I have seen people banned for differing views, especially if one doesn't follow lock-step and love Bush and Christianity.

I could hold back no more, and apologize if I have offended anyone. I'm just calling it like I see it.

Oh Yeah, Looking forward to Matt's next fight. Go Matt!

relax there Buzzard,things ain't so bad around here,heck im still here,and if you ask around a bit you just might find out how truly remarkable that really is,:)
as far as the gang mentality go's,heck thats all part of the fun here,,if your mad a few people but dont want to take the time to tell them individually all you have to do is insult one of them and the rest will come at you guns a blazing because they feel insulted too,it really is a thing of beauty if you do it right,and it will reward you with literally hours upon hours of entertainment,

as far as getting banned for having a different view point then the powers to be around here?well,unless you insult them in someway i'm pretty sure your safe,,,(sorry but my finger seems to be acting up again),:sad: ,
and i know your think,what about Nate?,well let me tell you, when the new forums opened up and i came back Nate and i had couple of rumbles and i was very close to being banned for what i thought was just speaking my mind,well nate and a couple of his gang friends,well maybe a few more then a couple,pretty sure it wasn't over 10 though,,okay okay,it was some where around 20 or so,are you happy now?can i get back to my story?,geez,
any way like i was saying Nate and 20 or so of his gang friends pointed out where my thought process might have been a little flawed,
and while some people,(like yourself) might have interpreted this as some sort of a personal attack i did not,i actually am grateful that there are this many people that truly are interested in what i have to say and are not shy to give me some constructive criticism,thanks guys,::scared0011:
although Nate didn't like me much in the beginning,,,like is really kind of a strong word,it was more like hate me much i think,what ever,not really important anymore because i think Nate really kinda likes me now,,a man crush sort of thing i would say :wink:
I'm sure when he gets up in the morning the first thing he thinks is,man i wonder what that brads up to on the forums today,not saying nothing bad i hope because i really dont want to ban him,,i really kinda like the guy now,
or something along those lines i'm sure,
all those touchy feely posts by Tyburn must have had something to do with Nate getting in touch with his,,how shall we say, his less then manly side i would think,:mellow:

well Buzzard i hope this helps you in some way,
and for everyone else,please,have a nice,(and Nate i was just kidding about that man crush thing,,i know you still hate me):wink:

not really true ... sometimes when you insult someone, you are gonna get reamed, but some of the best threads on here are the exchange of differing opinions ... as long as you aren't insulting people, things are great ... This forum is just full of Obama & Stimulus Plan Lovers ... So don't insult the Great One Barack Hussein Obama or Nate will be after you ...
