As the following does not appear to judged as qualifying for inclusion as a 'collectible, insightful, pithy, especially well-turned, humorous or enlightening bon mot by another Mudcatter' - perhaps it will qualify for inclusion a thread with this title? Along with other examples of less than noteworthy postings?

Deluded, devoid of humour, dreadfully boring and disgustingly repetetive - that you would of course simply accept the fault was all yours and such a judgement was perfectly acceptable towards someone you have never actually met?

Actually, I would not, Roger. Someone's opinion of me is not an abuse of me- I can try to change his opinion if it is important to me- for instance, if someone really believes that I am a liar based on what I have said here, but if someone, as is more likely, calls me a windbag and uninformed, out of my depth, unable to admit I am wrong, unable to just let it go- and if I keep going without acknowledgment or an effort to change, follows up his or her opinion with stronger and more vituperation, that is still only an opinion. It can hurt my feelings but it cannot hurt me. And I would hope that at some point I will be asking myself what I have done or said that gave someone that idea of me.

Roger once again you use this thread wrongly in my opinion, it is for sometimes wise, and some times funny 'quotable quotes' which are thought worthy of perpetuation by people drawing fellow Mudcatters attention to them, and hopefully they will share the posters appreciation of the quote.
IT IS NOT a vehicle for you to pursue your paranoid campaign against perceived slights and affronts to you and your deathless [sic] prose PLEASE Roger will you for fucks sake give it a rest or better still take your obsessions elsewhere, because everybody I speak to about it is as fed up with your tripe as I am.

*Smiles* - Ebbie are you saying seriously that I will not be able to provide many past quotes from you containing your views on what I should or not do? Perhaps you would like to provide us with one or two of them first - to save others the effort?

But the point is rather finally accepting that what others choose to post is out of anyone's control except theirs. That all this encouragement of posters who feel themselves qualified or have the need to post to only pass judgement upon what their fellow posters choose to say or do or to personally abuse them - is causing a bigger problem than letting posters like you decide for themselves.

Roger, I wasn' going to say anything further but you have caused me to speak again. No. You have not. I CHOOSE to speak again. Don't you see the difference? One cannot be "caused to say something. We can be given reason to do so, we can be encouraged to do so, we can be goaded into doing so- but the decision to do so remains with US.

Have you ever been at a youngsters' ball game of some sort where a parent keeps carping and harping - loudly - on how the coach is performing his job? Within a VERY short time ALL of the people around that parent are sick and tired of the PARENT.

The coach is the one designated to do the job. So, if you want to be the coach and not the parent, get your own job.

And that's what I have to say about that.

It seems to me rather a well crafted tirade, what with its alliteration, and its rhythmic qualities.

Clumsily punctuated, true - it should have rerad:

Shambles, you are a self obsessed, self interested, self important, supercilious, pompous, priggish, paranoid prat. Deluded, devoid of humour, dreadfully boring and disgustingly repetitive.

Considered stylistically, it contrasts very well with the stuff that some people here seem to feel necessary to spew out when they get crossed. I think Shambles could well actually feel quite pleased to have elicited a denunciation like that.

Is there such a organisation as the Constant Riders Under the Double Standard? For I see that many of the usual suspects are again gathered here and blindly and pedantically stumbling around under it for mutual support.

I fear the drive on our forum that has seen – what posters say – be overridden by who is saying it, has now reached a critical level. Those posters who are generally considered to be 'nice' can posts the most dangerous things and set the most negative examples and have these ideas supported. And can freely post abusive personal attacks - as long as they are directed at certain easy targets who are considered to deserve such treatment.

When those who are not now generally considered to be 'nice, can post requests for equal treatment and freedom of expression for all and have these attacked and be subjected themselves to abusive personal attacks. Even when they do not respond in kind to the many abusive personal attacks they are regulally subject to.

All of this when we have anonymous volunteer fellow posters who are supposed to be protecting all posters from this but when some of them also indulge in making these abusive personal attacks. These fellow posters are also supposed to protect all posters from racist posts.

Under this double standard - we have just recently seen an example of one the most racist and divisive threads ever started on our forum. Many contributors even commented that this thread was a 'good one'. I rather suspect that what they meant was that the person who started it was a 'nice' person so however uneasy they may have felt about some of what was being said – the 'nice' person saying this things should be supported. And that anyone who posted to disagree with what this 'nice' person was saying – must be truly 'nasty.

In some respect it did turn-out after a struggle to be – if not perhaps a good thread – but a better one. Mainly because of the sensible way that those who posted to disagree with the main points conducted themselves and made their arguments. This enabled the dangerous premise of the thread to be turned into a sensible discussion and the double standard to be at least questioned.

It's wise to question both your foe and your friend.

As for the un-named (we all know who you're talking about, Shambles... how disingenious) Mudcatter who started the thread on Racial No-No's, AZIZI exhibited several qualities you might emulate:

   1. When challenged about particular statements she did not:
       Endlessly ignore them with no response
       Insist that she never writes anything that isn't exactly
       the way it should have been worded
       Respond by cut and pasting someone's elses post, as proof
       she is right
       Whine that she gets no respect
      

   2. She did:
       Rephrase and clarify some of her statements that were
       challenged
       Aknowledge that perhaps some of her opinions were just
       personal and perhaps (Gasp!) wrong
       Indicate an openness to reconsidering some of her own
       opinions

And your response to her admission that perhaps her attitude on banjo needed revision? A playground "Nyah, Nyah" attitude, cutting and pasting her sincere admission as further proof that you are right.

If all of these qualities in the Racial Non-No's thread make AZIZI "nice" I don't feel so bad about being called "nice." Not that you would ever call me "nice" to my face...

I would love to see your file of songs you have written and discuss their content and hear you sing some of them. You write good songs.

Shambles,

once more you are arguing in complete disregard of context.
Take Ebbie, for example. If someone would call her all these names I would doubt their judgement for Ebbie has posted nothing that could be characterised with any of Jock's colourful expressions. You, however, have worked very hard to be awarded this characterisation.

The question "How would you feel if someone punched you on the nose"? can have very different responses depending upon what has happened before.

The question "How would you feel if someone punched you on the nose"? can have very different responses depending upon what has happened before.

To the academic perhaps? The pain of the victim is still pain - even if the pain of being punched on the nose was not judged as bad as having one's leg cut-off - and even if some others (not feeling the pain) judged that the victim had somehow deserved such treatment. The victim is hardly likely to agree that they desevered such treatment - especially if they had never indulged in nose-punching.

But would this make the act of punching anyone on the nose any less desirable an action for so-called civilised and educated people to indulge in? Is it really an act that should be encouraged because some people may judge that others may have done something to deserve a punch on the nose?

Is such confused thinking going to result in more nose punching or less? How are those who are not judged to have deserved such treatment to be protected from also being punched on the nose? How can you ever judge another for nose punching - if you indulge in such things yourself, ever condone or find excuses for it?
