Girly will miss you. But I have no sense so this place is right for me.

There is something very wrong with this forum.

It allows for other individuals to be personally bullied to the point where they can be called any derogatory name allowed.

That is not free speech. That is idiocy blanketed by a term about which this forum is clearly oblivious.

Gasp

The forum moderators = Hobo

I have enough sense to leave a forum with no sense.

Perhaps you should join P.O.O.P
(People Offended by Offended People) I'm sure they'll accept you.

Here's the thing. 100% of the people can't be satisfied 100% of the time. Someone, somewhere is gonna get their feelings hurt. But - and here's the rub - only if they allow it to happen. I say, if you don't like a word, don't use it.

You can tell other people how unhappy you are until you're blue in the face. At the end of the day they are going to say/write what they want because freedom of speech is here.

Luckily for you, there are options:
1 - ignore the post and move on
2 - ignore the person posting and move on
3 - ignore the thread and move on
4 - leave the forum and move on.

Since you are choosing the last option, it probably would have been more mature to just quietly leave rather than make a big production out of it. It sorta brings you down to the level of immaturity that you claim to be offended by. IOW you probably feel that people who use offensive words are nothing more than immature schoolyard bullies who are getting all the attention. What makes you any different when you decide to post a rage quit thread?

What a joke! Worth is a relative term. I have a lot of worth in the real world but not to some of the assholes here.

Of course worth is relative. The worth you have here on my screen is according to how much insight you bring to the table. That is my metric.

This is utterly untrue. I'm no liberal in the deprecatory sense you mean it. I tend to be right-center on most issues, and I'll be voting for Johnson (in all likelihood) this fall. All this is public knowledge, as I'm not shy about sharing my opinions. I've never had a gang dogpile me here. Sure, I get people who disagree with me plenty. I've caught a couple of negreps, as if they're important.

I'm thinking it has more to do with your presentation than your politics. As the saying goes, "If you wake up in the morning and the first person you meet is an asshole, he's an asshole. But if you wake up in the morning and everyone you meet is an asshole, maybe the asshole is really you."

Something to chew on.

No matter where you go, that smell will follow. Knowing both from here and from AF, you give off a leering, creepy vibe most of the time, and that makes people distrust you.

RE: I must leave
No one is forcing anyone else to be here, if you don't like it's ok to simply stop posting. I've only been here since Feb. and I've seen many people come and go already but at least you are telling us why.

I honestly think it is free speech though, in the OP it says this kind of offensive language isn't about free speech but it is. There's no point in protecting nice friendly speech that doesn't offend anyone, the point is to protect the speech you don't like. Yes it can cross the line but I have yet to see death threats or truly abhorrent hate speech on this forum.

I honestly would rather stay in that case and fight back instead of just leaving, it's ok to be a dissenting voice around here, it keeps things interesting. Yes, you may be attacked but you gotta stand up for yourself, it's just the internet, no one will really hurt you here, I doubt anyone cares enough to do that. The worst thing that can happen is a ban but since you are leaving anyway you don't have to worry about that.

You must demonstrate your own worth before you can denigrate someone else's.

That might be the rationalization behind not allowing neg-repped users from handing out rep, but the actual effect is a forum where everyone has free speech but some have more free speech than others.....which works out okay if you are a pig.

You've earned your reputation. You should not be permitted to go on a neg rep rampage against everyone who realizes you are a fucking asshole. But hey, I'm just one of the ones who uprepped you.
