It is obvious from the hidden post that some think that their views are intelligent; so intelligent that all other views should be censored by banning the subjects of their ire.

 

Take it from me, no one is that intelligent.

 

The plain fact is that those on the right have called for the banning of specific community members for years and during that time they convinced those that they want banned that it should be those who call for banning that should be banned.

 

As the internet changes and circumstances also change, all may get their wish.

INTERESTING,,MY POST GOT DELETED....

 

PUBBY DOESN'T LIKE THE TRUTH

 

Actually, I was reading the post that Aunt Bea had sent invisible and hit the wrong button making it visible by accident. I could toggle your hate filled reply for all to feel but decided that I would return the post to its status quo ante.

 

BTW, the post is not deleted; just hidden.

No one that I know of has called for people to be banned because of their views.

Some might have called for certain members to be banned because they constantly make personal attacks on members and their families.

But it would seem that those members DO NOT get banned BECAUSE of their views. Which is exactly the opposite of what you are claiming.

BTW, pubs, one of your boys posted the same website name that Captain Rhett did, and his post is still there.

P.S. other sites are not your enemy; the way your own site is ran is what is destroying it. How many people will need to tell you that before you get it?

Just used the site today to search back thru and find a recommendation on a local hvac. Woke up cold this morning and thanks to pcom, by this afternoon the measurements where taken and the equipment ordered. This place was at its best when it was used for stuff like that. Community.

What it became was a finger wagging political peeing and overall size competition. There's a lot of blame for that all around, but it comes down to "hey, let's discuss politics and religion behind some semi-anonymity."

That idea reminds me of the time as a very small hellion, when I just needed to know what would happen if I opened mommas hair pin and stuck it in the outlet behind dad's chair. I posses that information now. As a matter of fact, it is burned endeilibly in to my memory and a small place on my hand. But hey, I was like 3 or something. There's a point there somewhere.

Yep. Liked it when I needed a recommendation for something and posted it and got 5 or 6 *helpful* responses in the first hour or so.

 

Seems like the fight over the "PRDs" was the beginning of politics taking over. Remember the "PRDs are Bad" thread that lasted *forever*.

 

People used to discuss Gardening issues on here. Sure could have used them last summer as all my tomatoes died off.

 

Heck, I bought several items (including all the light fixtures in the room I'm in now) from people placing for sale on Pcom. Met some fine people on here.

 

There have to be some fun topics as well as deep discussions on any web site for it survive, no one wants just argument after argument. However, even those topics opened as fun ones seem to have politics brought in to them by somebody and it goes downhill quick lately. Not sure what the correct solution is.

 

Maybe its a sign of the general degrade of social media. Facebook sure seems to have the same issue no matter what they try to clamp down on. However, there is still some fun and good information on there that has kept me on it so far.

 

We shall see.

 

PS. I also learned to never cut Sheetrock out of the ceiling with a handsaw without checking for wires first. I have three missing teeth on the saw and scar on my hand to remind me of that one.

Conservatives by nature must have a boggemann to justify their hate and bigotry. George Soros is a favorite and since he is a liberal Jew it's like getting two boogeymen for the price of one. Nancy Pelosi Hillary Clinton are always favorites, speak out against the hypocrisy the hate and bigotry that is at the heart of conservatism and you too may get to be a boogeyman.

If an academic were to line out the players in this drama, look up and categorize each new topic started and each reply, that academic would be able to say that there was one group that is quite practiced in propaganda and used a variety of such propaganda techniques and tactics to misinform, lie, distort and often misstate not only their own positions but the positions of others ... with the logical understanding that conflict would occur.

 

I mean we've all been treated to the hyped fears of a massive caravan of middle eastern terrorists disguised as refugees from brutal, criminal regimes in central America that was such a massive threat that the most fearful person (or most vile propagandist) felt was worth ruining the holiday season for more members of our military than currently serve in Afghanistan so they can go sit in camps on the southern border.

 

The problem we have here is the same issue that faces the nation, whether it is in the realm of gun control, public health, welfare, social security, obamacare, the insanity that if you cut taxes on the rich and tax the poor, the poor will prosper ... etc. etc. etc. and that is that is there is one political movement that will blame the other for the creation of death squads and deny they did so with a wink.

 

And, of course, these same people will pontificate a multitude of reasons and blame others for their contribution to the demeaning of the pcom community and, most importantly, become indignant when anyone questions any of their pontifications because, well, they're right, because they are right wing and right wingers are right, right????

 

Wrong.

 

All this is really is the concerted acts of a group of people who seek to dominate an open forum and, like the uncool "cool kids" in high school who bully their way to the heights of social status in a rural consolidated high school in a poorer, less educated area and think that those who question their preeminence are crazy, wacky, stupid, and dare I say it, subhuman.

 

Being one who has been classed by these community members as somehow subhuman, I can only say that I don't subscribe to their desolate world view that is so centered on the importance of money in defining power and influence that it makes me nauseous at puts me at risk of spewing.

We are the only animal on the planet that does not interact with one another face to face. It will be interesting to see how long it takes society to fall apart when people no longer accept responsibility for the things they say and a whole generation comes of age who were not taught even basic good manners, much less things like charity, compassion or civility.

 

When you consider how much information we gain from body language and facial expressions, it isn't any wonder there is so much discord.

So now there are three of you ignoring the requests of basically everyone else to stop hijacking and disrupting threads with this tiresome crap.

 

Just adding to the problem, man.

Interesting point. I've often had trouble with attempting to say something funny on line and because of the lack of the side channels of expressions, it doesn't come out right. I can often recognize it because I grew up without it and can delete it before I screw up. (Though if you look through the archives on here you will see many times I failed)

 

I hadn't though much about this generation or two that uses the emojis for everything because that's all they've know. That could explain a lot.

It is VERY annoying when every single thread turns into a political thing and then a personal attack, and it's the same two people attacking each other endlessly. It could be a thread about Thanksgiving dinner and it becomes an all-out war. Just grow up. I have two bickering kids at home, don't need to be bombarded with two bickering kids on here.

Mine did better this year than last, I got almost none last year, we had several months of good ones this year.

 

I think I planted too early last year, the rains came and just drowned them.

 

This year, we had rain, then we didn't just as i went out of town for several weeks, so the plants didn't get watered well. I started getting real small ones as they dried out.

 

The Green Peppers did Good this year. I love a good garden pepper on my salad. :)

I don't want to keep beating a dead horse, but I think it might be helpful if I point out a few things.

This thread has already been made political by a couple of people above (more on that later)

First off - I fully admit to getting drawn into this stuff. Why? The amount of misinformation posted here and the utter hatred for our president truly bothers me. Now...contrary to what some here think, I'm not a Trump lover. I simply think he was and is the better of the two choices we had. The man has his issues, I don't think anyone here will argue that. But according to some here, every single thing he does is the end of the world, and the level of hate spewed is very hard to overlook.

It's calmed down some lately, but up until recently there were multiple threads posted every single day that were for no reason by to criticize the man for seemingly every breath he takes. I'm not going to claim that he's done every thing right, but he has done some things right. Yet according to certain people here; he's the devil himself.

That gets old, and so does the constant calls for Socialism from members here. That is the stuff that is hurting our country. And while we're at it; a lot of people, myself included, are pretty sick and tired of some of the members here calling us racists and bigots. That's the furthest thing from the truth, and all they are accomplishing with this is to further divide us as Americans.

Quite a few members here know me in real life, or from Facebook and other forums. I'm the most laid back guy ever when anywhere else but here. I never make personal attacks and I am always civil in discussions elsewhere. So what's different here? A few of the members. It's impossible to discuss things civilly here. A handful of members, and that includes the owner of the forum, call you names and attack you personally. If some of you knew the personal attacks that's been launched on me and my wife and family, you would be outraged. The attacks on my wife and family was primarily by two members, I won't name them at this time because I'm posting this more to explain some things than I am to stir up more crap. Bottom line is; it's extremely hard to be civil here when there is so much nastiness directed at you.

Regarding turning every thread political...yes, it happens. But if you look above, you'll see who almost always does it. Cain the worst offender, and pubby is also pretty bad. The level of anger and hatred that exists here for Trump and the Republicans (now they say conservatives because many of us on the right do not claim party affiliation) is horrible, and they allow it to spill over into almost every thread on the forum.

There are also a lot of political issues posted in non-political areas. The worst offender has been absent for awhile, for whatever rean, but he isn't the only one.


So now there are three of you ignoring the requests of basically everyone else to stop hijacking and disrupting threads with this tiresome crap.

 

Just adding to the problem, man.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry, lady, but you don't get a pass in this. The majority of your posting here is flying into a thread, insulting the conservatives, and flying back out. You are also part of the problem.

As I have said many times, it's up to the leader to solve issues like this. Change starts at the top. And the reality is that the leader is part of the problem. This forum has long ceased being about the good of the county/community, it's very clear that politics is all that is important to pubby. pubby is often quite insulting, and as you can see above; he drags politics into everything here.

What else could be done? The moderators could ban some people, but given pubby's post above, he clearly believes that 100% of the fault lies on "the other side". Meaning, conservatives are the cause of all the problems here and the Democrats/Liberals have zero fault in it. So the likely result of bannings here would be that I and others who disagree with pubby and his crew, and that won't solve the problem. It would quieten things down for a bit, but then the people on pubby's side would have free reign to post all the hate they want, and then it would eventually start back up with other members.

The real solution is simply to stop the ugliness. But again, that has to start at the top. Again, I accept responsibility for my part in this, but I have also been trying very hard to remain civil since the last mod warning. The problem is, the other "side" has not. And nothing is ever done about it. In a discussion with a mod a few weeks ago, I was told that they can't do anything about certain people because I was responding to them in kind. The mod promised me that if I would not respond in kind, and report the posts when they start with the personal attacks; that they would handle it. Well, they have not. I did what the mod told me to do, and the ugliness continues. They won't even respond to me now, so I don't even bother to report the stuff anymore. I know I'm probably breaking the rules by discussing moderation, but I felt that people need to know.

So here we are. I am 100% willing to play nice and discuss things civilly, but unless others play by those rules, not much changes.

Unless pubby or someone actually wants to discuss this, I'll leave it at that. My reasons for posting all this is to attempt to fix things, not to stir the pot even more. And I'm being sincere about this. Remember...I have owned up to my part in this; will others admit responsibility?

Every one have a great day.

Your reason for posting this is clear as always to play the victim. While you say you take responsibility it comes with the lie that you are always provoked into it. I personally went a month trying to ignore your taunts and insults hoping you would leave me alone you would not. You have said some vile disgusting and hurtful things about not just me but a number of members on this board most of whom have left because of your constant harassment and nastiness All to the glee of your handful of admirers for whom you preform.

If this is what you call an apology I find it empty, shallow, without regret or remorse. I for one will have no part of it.

Seems as though Paulding.com will never change. Perhaps it's just time to leave it behind and take Dallas Hwy (or Thornton Road or whatever route) out of this 'town'.

Not sure about that. I think that’s it’s core there are many fine people that did/do make up p.com.

 

I really hope the haters will just get tired of having to constantly apologize for their posts and just go away so that more of the moderate folks get the sense that they can state their position without the fear of their intelligence being compared to “barnyard” animals or being called a drunk or whatever the insult of that particular day may be.

 

Frankly, I’m really not sure folks even have the time to care. It is, at the end of the day, just a community web site. People are busy with their own lives.

I would like to know what I've posted that was "vile and disgusting"? Yeah, I've returned fire after being called all kinds of names. I shouldn't have, but I did. But I've never ever come close to the things you've said about my wife. And should we go into the threats you've made to me via PM? And who has left because of me? I doubt anyone.

 

And RM, you've called me and others "smuck" and "douchebag" many times, so please don't act innocent. I would also take issue with your statement that your side is "moderate", but I won't go into that any deeper at this time.

 

Point being...you guys can't seem to admit that you have played a big role in this ugliness. You seem to think you are innocent and have done nothing wrong. You keep accusing me of playing victim, all while complaining about how badly you're treated. Hmmmm, a bit hypocritical, don't you think. Even now when I am trying to discuss a solution, you guys are still spewing anger and hate. Until that changes, I doubt there will be a real solution.

 

Again, I have admitted and and owned up to my roll in this, but that will do little good unless other others do as well.

You haven't owned up to anything your still playing the victim which your not.

 

I would have been happy to never exchange another word with you but you wouldn't allow it,

 

Ninety percent of the time things only became ugly here when were outsmarted, which was often, your ego can't allow for you to be outsmarted, shown dishonest or wrong. So you resort to taunting, name calling and spiteful comments, if I ever went over the line it was because you drew me there. And yes you have driven dozens of good people away from this board for years you have practiced a kind of slash and burn on this site and this is what you have left the community with.

 

I'll make a deal with you I will leave this site to the good people of paulding and give them the peace that they deserve if you will promise do the same. Because honestly dude your not worth it.

I and others could leave, and then this place would become a giant, unchecked left-wing gripe fest. Thread after thread of incessant bashing toward Trump and Republicans, with no one to challenge them. Well, maybe it won't be a bad thing for people to see that.

I find that very hard to believe and I certainly dont remember posting it. Seeing that your past postings have been littered with stretching the truth, embellishments and flat out lies, unless you can find where I posted that, it never happened.

 

However, unlike you, if you do find where I posted this, I will owe up to it and apologize.

So what are you saying Chester ? That this is a debate forum ? How does that work Chester, all I notice you post are a couple snarky lines after all of pubby's post or words of love,praise and admiration after everything GD post I have almost never seen you come up with more than two maybe three sentences as a matter of fact even when you criticize me they rarely amount to anything you would call a "debate"

Even your rules on memes,videos gifs and illustrations are unclear, I am not the only one that use them, not by a long shot, is there a limit that I'm not aware of ?

You know what Chester I'm just going to have to call Bullcheeze on your entire post. You are singling me out for things everyone on this board does my only crime seems to be criticizing your boyfriend guard dad , I have given my reasons for that and why I am unapologetic for it.

 

Even the premise of this thread is a failure, you might note that it has had almost 600 views and over 30 replies hardly the dead website you gleefully announced.

So I got a plan. I've always wanted my own sandbox. Now I've come across a few sandboxes in my day. As a matter of fact I still have access to at least a couple of sandboxes to use.

There was one in particular that I particularly enjoyed using, but it was somebody else's and I didn't like there rules for using that sandbox. Especially that they wouldn't let me defecate in it anyway and anytime I liked. So finally I went and built my own sandbox.

Well after built my shiny new sandbox I relized that I really didn't want to be defecating in my own pristine sand, so I decided that I would stay there some and show it off to my friends and let them play in it as long as the followed MY rules. But when I just really need to go, I'll go back over to the old sandbox, tell everybody there that I'm doing it because I'm worried about the integrity of the old sandbox if I don't and just let the crap fly.

How long you think that's gonna work for me?

How long you think that's gonna work for me?

If you're referring to me; I was a member here long before an "other sandbox" was created. And though I am an admin at that sandbox, I did not create it and it's technically not mine.

 

Years ago, Johnny J (best mod ever at P'Com) told me I was fun and he hoped I stayed here forever. I had a pile of Mayberries, most of them for helping members here. So what changed?

 

I'm actually on several forums, and I am very respectful of the rules. I don't have a problem with the rules here, but how they are enforced needs some work. Too much bias. You can read pubby's post above and see it.

So I got a plan. I've always wanted my own sandbox. Now I've come across a few sandboxes in my day. As a matter of fact I still have access to at least a couple of sandboxes to use.

There was one in particular that I particularly enjoyed using, but it was somebody else's and I didn't like there rules for using that sandbox. Especially that they wouldn't let me defecate in it anyway and anytime I liked. So finally I went and built my own sandbox.

I've been around here for a very long time and I have an excellent memory.

 

I've had great fun and great conversations,

and I've also been subject to malicious abuse.

 

The names and the players have changed a few times over the past dozen years,

but the problem has always been the same.

 

"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

 

Free content is the life blood of any forum or message board,

and when you sheeze all over those who provide that free content,

they will eventually get tired of supporting your business model.

 

Wounded animals often lash out when they sense their demise...
