I have been here not so long, took part in a long discussion about ex-vegans and posted this thread and these couple days was already enough to be fed up with the comments of the "calorie-savvy" stinky-fruit-rider with severe phosphatidylcholine deficiency in the grey matter. "Tracking" is a big word for looking at two threads and seeing how much hostility this nut breeds here. Just reading two threads with at least a dozen comments about how he/she/it managed to piss so many people here is enough to see what's going on at this "democratic" place.
I personally don't know how you guys tolerate it. I don't. I don't have to. I don't like bullying and agreeing with bully-jerks is basically supporting anarchy and unlawful behavior. I don't support it and never will. If somebody feels it should be allowed, then we as well should allow all sorts of bullying, disrespectful behavior and so on and forget about order. That nut is lucky to be in this virtual reality where he/she can get away with all this, not in a street...perhaps it's the only place to allow such bullying... I have never seen forums that allow so much chaos. It feels like you are being punished for being helpful.. how weird...
By being so polite and attempting being so called "politically correct" so many of you here silently allow abuse, being abused as well as the abuser get away away with it. What a shame... shame on moderators as well.
But the great thing is, it just dawned on me - personal website with blog and only allowed comments is the only solution to share the ideas that were born in scrutiny, hard work, long and painful recovery as well as solid academic basis. Having intelligent conversations here is like having them in a bar, where there is too much loud music, and occasionally somebody smart perhaps will be able to hear you and start a great conversation, and then you both suddenly get "punched" in the face by some bully for absolutely no reason.
I started posting here as a means of being grateful to whatever info here I found here (in addition to everything else I read and studied). But it seems this place with all its so-called democracy is not maintained with respect and professionalism. what a shame... it could be a rare opportunity for people to actually learn something useful.
This forum allows an atmosphere of chaos, anarchy and disrespect, and is far from being supportive to a few intelligent folks here whom I met. I don't allow being bullied, if it still happens, I can surely get over it, but when I see good folks being abused and attacked here for no reason, I simply lose it. I cannot control anger when I see innocent helpful people being disrespected, attacked, and abused and therefore I find this place far from being a place that is worth putting too much effort and heart into. it simply not worth it. There are no authoritative educated leaders here to whom the attacked folks can talk to and ask for protection. How come? what is a moderator's job here? to sit back and watch bullying?
building a personal website will surely give me a chance to keep order, respect and will allow peaceful respectful sharing on ideas in the comments section. Those who have intelligent ideas here, kind hearts and sincere will to help others will be surely invited. I'd love to continue all the great conversations we started here. Bullies can stay here and enjoy being pampered into further degenerative behavior.
what a shame all this. moderators seriously lack any critical thinking... what a shame. feel so sorry for so many good folks here.
