Nzingha, you said,
You don't know Ark I well enough to disrespect him that way. This is his forum. We've been corresponding for years.
You are right that he doesn't know I, although he thinks he does. Nzingha, you may not know I completely, but I think you probably have pretty good knowledge about I.
In regards to your comment
You know what Ark I,
I find it trully amazing that you CONTINUE to support the people who spit venom and hatred. And STILL refuse to explain yourself for taking their side, or failing that, denounce the behavior that they exhibit.
Obviously you read all the posts, or at least most. I am SUPER dissapointed in you. And to be perfectly honest, I am losing respect for you as the days pass by. I've never known you to be a closed eye person, I have always maintained that you listen to reason and seek to better yourself.
To be perfectly clear, let me also state that this has nothing to do with your actuall opinions as I know how stubborn you are on certain issues. I really don't care what you believe, you know that, I care that you encourage what shouldn't be encouraged, simply because of what you believe.
When that bites you in the ass, remember how long I've been trying to open your eyes and show you the light.
I'm not trying to call you out bredren, I'm letting you know how I feel. I believe we have enough history for you to know it's all love still. Your breaking my heart though.
There are several reasons for why I am posting the way I am.
I haven't had a lot of extra time in the last few months. It takes a lot of time to address every issue, even the few posts I have made here and there have taken a fair amount of time because I usually put a good amount of thought into what I write. And especially recently with all the fussing and fighting, there are way too many things to denounce from people on both sides of the argument. If I did that, I wouldn't have any time to express I thoughts on the subjects.
There was one main criticism in regards to still looking, but even with him I have kept I mouth shut on many other things he has said. The main thing I spoke against him is about his manipulation of others and excessive twisting of people's words into a lie. The rest of the details related to his manipulation can be seen in the posts where I made the criticism. Another reason I am harder on still looking than others is because he is the main cause of most of the strife. So instead of people concentrating on more fruitful reasonings, so many are getting distracted by him to be pulled into the same circle over and over again. So in order to use my time in the best way and be most effective in stopping the strife, I put more effort into speaking against what I believe to be the main cause of strife.
Also, from what I read, things haven't gotten more excessive than many other times in the past. The strife comes and goes and I don't really want to become a police man of the forum. This strife will pass and there will be peace again until the next strife.
If you have been to other forums, you will see a rules page in many of them. I have never made a rules page and don't want to ever make a rules page. I only intervene when I feel it is really needed and I try as much as possible to not ban a person from the forum. And as I mentioned before, recently I don't have a lot of time to spend on the internet. So there is likely to be several times where I would have intervened in the past, but either didn't notice it now, or didn't have the time to address it.
If there are specific things that I didn't address that you think I should have. Feel free to post it or send I an email and I will either address the issue, or explain why I don't think there is anything to address regarding the issue.
