I am sad at some of the name calling that has occurred in recent threads.
It happens, we don't need to accept it but no need to let it drag you down. Just brush it off, send the person on ignore. Life goes on
Did I miss something?
It goes on for a couple of pages
I musta missed it too.
@stevierayfan91 buddy, don't worry too much about what trolls do. don't let them ruin your experience here. instead, concentrate on all the cool people we have.
People in general will rise to a challenge. Especially one as simple as derailing a thread.
Why do I miss everything good?
Guess I missed it too.
@stevierayfan91 , name calling and fighting make me sad, too, but Kelly's right. We can't let the bad behaviour of a few people ruin it for the rest of us.
Jeez. That's ridiculous.
it is....grown men older than me acting like 5 year olds. but, ya know.....guitar players.
A moody, emotional, and sensitive lot at times aren’t we? Friggin artists.
pretty unstable at times. the rest of us have to forgive, though.
ive said some pretty stupid things here in the past and was forgiven.
Like Joel said, brush it of. Sadly, it's part of life and everyday behaviour to some. You will encounter that from time to time.
In my book though derailing does not equal bad behaviour, it means taking a thread in an unexpected direction. Thta can be, and usually done, in a civilized and fun way. Apparently not all the time.
And … name calling is against the rules too .
Oh no! Words on a screen! :0
Derailing. To knock off its intended course. A train derailment is not only this, but in certain circumstances violent and tragic.
One must take into consideration the methods a person might use to achieve it.
Redirection through a non sequitur is harmless. But in such a challenge...people will generally try to outdo the most recent "derailment". Usually by being more outrageous or subversive.
It's like the misogyny thread a while back. It starts off semi-innocent, but once you get the relative anonymity of the internet involved all bets are off. Chances of it going bad extrapolate with every post.
Just like the derail thread.
I would have called it the "Hijack This!" thread. Change the subject. Not who can f this thread up the most.
Said it before. It's an art, but you still gotta play by the rules.
And even that is difficult. I have to remember that its not a conversation. What you says...stands. LOL
I just came inside from riding bikes with my littlest girls. I'm anything but sad.
The world I create makes me happy.
The world I allow others to create for me make me sad.
Create your world.
