Sure, I like that idea. I will try to do that in the future should I find myself in a position of contributing to thread derailment- particularly where grief and requests for support was the purpose of the thread.

Good call Hughsie. Don't be to hard on people either - it's not like we've had to deal with a guy like Egor before. Personally I'm happy to add a one line "Egor you're being a dick" to any thread and less happy to PM him because then OMFG I might be forced into some kind of painful conversation Dodgy

RE: What's a forum about?
So does anyone realize that this very thread has been derailed by Egor without him even contributing?? Do you see that there are now sereral threads about him?

Egor is NOT to blame for any of this.

I think Egor can be a supreme dick. But when you let someone you don't like dictate your emotion, it's your own damn fault. Not to mention, we can all be dicks, and Egor is in the major minority here. That may not excuse him behavior (KC sets the bar for getting along with people who don't share his thinking, so no playing the KC card) but it sure as hell deserves a little leeway. He doesn't cope very well, and sure he is probably pretty looney, but it's you guys who are creating your own bad experience on the forum by letting him affect you.

C'mon everyone, stop letting someone else make you angry, and start owning your own roles. The topic here is NE Ohio, a person who I personally would really like to see stay. At the same time, I can't blame him for not. If Egors posts had been isolated bullshit then there probably wouldn't be an issue, but the attention those posts get make it a bigger thing than it needs to be. It turns entire threads into "hate on Egor" discussions, and has now actually created threads to do specifically that.

We all need to grow up (ya ya, including me) and stop trying to blame on bad egg for ruining the batch. Enough already!

All of this hating on people hating on Egor is really getting to me. Can't we just hate on AbdelZ for a while?

Thanks for making that clear. I wont say names because it only makes it worse. Just let it go. I need to move on. I do wish all my post would be taken down. If i knew how to do it I would. All my best to everyone and you need to try to be kinder to even the ones you disagree with. This is not life or death here. You will not change someone who don't want to change either.

Sorry to see you go.

I wouldn't allow your posts to be taken down because they have made their impact on our little forum and that is done, no going back.

If your mind's made up then all the best mate. If not then I hope you decide to stick around.

Either way good luck for the future Smile.
