Thanks Eggy for a lovely summary.

Yes, Noel, it takes all kinds, and only the intentionally malicious have ever been un-welcomed. We work hard here to gently point out to someone if they might be inadvertently trampling someone - and even the ones who dont care about such things generally make an effort not to be horrid to others once "horrid" is defined or explained. When they don't, some kind soul reaches out to reassure the new kids that they are ok and dont need to take any horrid to heart. It's a lovely bit of family we have here.

While I agree that Zelda's comments were inappropriate, inapplicable, and thoroughly out of line, we also know that Zelds is usually a very nice gal. Obviously she is going through something at the moment, and taking some of it out here. I hope that when the Zelda we have come to know returns, her apologies will met with grace.

It *does seem like time, perhaps, to retire this thread.  Perhaps we should all grab a cuppa and watch that Stephen Matlock go pick a fight? ( thank you for the roflmao moment! Knowing him here would have been enough, but since I am fortunate enough to be acquainted with him IRL, and know that he is actually kinder than he seems even here on the forum, that was about the funniest damn thing I have read all year!)

And Nick...dont change. We love you just the way you are.

Yeah, like that Stephen Matlock guy... just walks around picking fights.

I've been completely ignoring this thread lately, mostly for that exact reason.  In my world if the conversation is headed the wrong way you excuse yourself to get another cup of tea and never return to it.

So my apologies for the post-and-run, but I'm almost out of tea.  This 'Norway' mug is too small.  I should bring Tallinn or London back in.  It's a shame my Croatia mug has cracked glazing and leaks.

THE HELL?!

I do have to admit, this thread became so much more entertaining in the last 24 hours. It would actually make a very interesting stage play.

And I take my tea black.

On second thought make that coffee.

Thanks Preston, that's very kind of you. I didn't take it personally, but I really appreciate your comment.

PS: @Nickofnight, Zelda's comment is so ridiculous it doesn't even seem necessary to address, but you are 100% awesome and I value your presence and feedback here.

I am ashamed to have had anything to do with any of you worthless people.

Wow.

@Zelda if your goal is dissuading people from participating in the forums, literally the exact opposite intent of OP, then your behavior is how you do it. Well done.


I honestly don’t understand how a thread that started as a reminder to think of others’ feelings when reviewing became...this. I was new to the forums not even half a year ago, and have generally found the forums to be a supportive and kind place. It’s definitely gone off the rails here.
