On another thread a poster said this:

Quote:
All I can say is go ahead and post on any thread except your own whinefests and see what happens. This is ALL OUT WAR. Look out, Walking Troll.

and

Quote:
And what DMZ Zone? I never agreed to any DMZ Zone...

and

Quote:
I guarantee this is not over.

and

Quote:
I advise this person to be very, very careful when he addresses my comments...

I have created a DMZ for myself which I will not cross. I don't have anyone on ignore, including the poster who made these comments. But I will not in any way, shape, or form have anything to do with or have anything to say to this poster from here on out. Directly or indirectly. That is a commitment which I make for all to see and understand. I do feel bad that this situation escalated to where it has. For me, the best thing to do is create a personal space between myself and this poster. I don't think he will have any concerns in regards to having to engage in further 'warfare'.

That's not where I want to go.

Regards,
MG

Oh great, a special thread to announce that you aren't going to talk to someone on the internet that you don't get along with. :rolleyes:

So, what sort of discussion do you intend for your opening post to generate?

I don't really know what I'm supposed to say here.

I would suspect nothing more than what you might feel disposed to say over on the thread where I extracted the comments from. On that thread the poster is making clear...and announcing to all...that from his view, warfare is going to possibly infiltrate threads in which I am participating. He was notifying everyone of that fact. I decided that I needed to also create a publicly posted thread, as he did, but with the intent to squelch and/or put a stop to that declared war...at least as far as I'm concerned.

And that's it. I don't expect much else on this thread. It can work itself down to the bottom of the page and into the dustbin of history. :smile:

Regards,
MG

So the party got so dirty that you decided to pull up your pants and go home?

I think you're supposed to say that board drama belongs in Telestial and then pitch the thread down there.

No drama intended here at all. If you look at the postings on the thread from which I extracted these comments in the OP...that is a thread that I think would qualify as "drama". I'm simply responding to those comments here and putting the poster I've referred to on notice that I am unwilling to participate and will not participate in any kind of perceived "warfare" from here on out. I felt like his thread and the declared "war" needed to be addressed on my part.

And I have committed to not make comments on his thread. So here we are.

If this thread would go elsewhere, it seems fair that the thread from which I extracted these comments ought to move also. But, truth be told, I see very little drama in this thread in comparison with the thread that I am referring to.

Unless you create the drama. :wink:

Regards,
MG

So here we are with you breaking your own professed commitment.

You know what? Get out of our faces with your personal conflict and dramas. There's an entire forum created for this kind of nonsense.

Use it.

You are not the board nanny. Although, from what I've observed, you might well be called the board drama queen. You can create drama out of thin air practically. :lol:

Leave it alone, and go on your way.

I said what I said, and don't have any qualms about having said it.

More drama to come?

Good day,
MG

I have not made any comment on the thread in question. Again, good day...unless you're going construct/build a drama where none was intended/created, at least by me.

Really, Jersey, I would think that you would welcome a peaceful gesture moving forward that doesn't result in and/or ends/squelches a declared "war" on the part of another poster.

You of all people, I think, would want peace to reign, right? :smile:

I'm trying to be the peacemaker at this point. What are you doing and/or attempting to do?

Let it go.

Regards,
MG

So it seems you are going to completely ignore him by not ignoring him at all. :rolleyes:

Yep, here we are...on my thread, not the other thread created by the poster to whom I have committed not to participate on their thread.

Get it?

Done yet?

The poster in question that has issues with me said/laid out what they believed/felt needed to be said on their thread, and I respect that.

Again, I'm setting up a DMZ...for me... and refuse to continue the contention and/or warfare which was declared and/or alluded to and I have laid out how I am willing to help in alleviating the concerns of the poster in question.

That should be a welcome move.

OK? :smile:

Maybe it can stop here now...?

MG

I was hoping to be done after the OP. Others have jumped in which has required that I respond. I'm hoping that the OP can just stand alone at this point and we can move on...

We shall see.

Dr. Shades, to mentalgymnast, on his previous GRIEVANCE THREAD, wrote:
click the "Report" button if you have a legitimate grievance. DO NOT START ANOTHER GRIEVANCE THREAD, EVER AGAIN. Let this be the last one. The name of this website is "MormonDiscussions.com," not "GrievanceDiscussions.com."
[font size increased]

How is this not another GRIEVANCE thread? I propose again that mentalgymnast's posts be placed on mod queue, especially since he has shown he can't follow the rules, even after a personal request from Dr. Shades.

No. No it didn't. I explain this every night to my children when they argue.

All that is needed is for one of you to stop. The only way you win this game is by not playing.

All you have to do is stop. No one is grabbing your hands and making you click the "submit" button. Don't cede control of your own actions to others. Just. Stop.
