In this thread about whether or not men also fake orgasmsBlowero set himself up for the perfect joke and I being a sucker for a straight line took the bait. As per usual ** Blowero** reacted in a disproportionate manner. When told by a mod “Behave, blowero. That was uncalled for. Knock it off.” He responded with the rationale of “But she started it and besides it’s just not fair!!!” :stamps foot, pouts:
It is obvious to any reader that Blowero hates me with an ire that burns like a thousand suns but, I can honestly say this hatred is neither mutual nor well deserved. I said something rash in reaction to a whole series of unrelated events and he has taken this slight and whipped it up into a self-righteous fury Even after I apologized for the initial remark, his tyrade continues. To be blunt, it intrigues the hell out of me how I could ingnite such depth of emotion in anyone, much less someone to whom I made an off hand remark on a message board.
But come on people, who could resist such a perfect set up? I would have responded the same had it been any other person on this board. Anyone else would have said "Damn I set myself up for that one didn’t I. :smack:
Blowero, get a grip on yourself and stop taking everything so fucking personal, OK? Your little temper tantrums are juvenile and downright tiresome and besides everything is not about you.
So what is it, exactly, that makes your swipe at his sexual prowess a lighthearted jibe, but makes his slam on your appearance a nasty, mean hearted slur? Couldn’t he just have been giving as good as he got? Might you be overreacting a little? Or is there some history here I am unaware of?
(His was just a smidge meaner, but hey, you did start it.)
If there is ‘history’, my recommondation would be to wrap your fingers in duct tape until the urge to post a ‘joke’ aimed in their direction passes.
I read the thread, I saw your jibe, his answer, the mod’s step in, then you kept it up. As far as I’m concerned, neither your original post nor their response was all that horrible, but once the mod stepped in, it really wasn’t ok for you to nudge the situation a bit more. Your last post (the first one on page 2) would have been the more appropriate reaction.
and to open this thread after the mod posted in that thread for ‘both of you’ to let it drop, is probably not your best plan either.
keeping in mind that I generally like you, Mermaid, so this is meant as constructive suggestions.
It has nothing to do with having a sense of humor, or lacking one. What it looks like is you just have to have the last word, even if it means doing so when a mod asked you both to stop.
This thread is another example.
You don’t like how he continues to hate you? Then drop this immature bullshit and quit goading him. I don’t see how you can post things like that and then say the feelings aren’t mutual or deserved. Obviously, you do have something against him, and I don’t think I could blame blowero for disliking you for this kind of thing.
You yourself mentioned your history with blowero, yet you posted the jab anyway. Did you not think that that might not be the smartest thing to do, given that history? Do you blame blowero for being upset? Did you think he’d momentarily forget what happened before, or that he’d put it aside and laugh along with you?
If anything, the fact that there was a prior incident should have made you more sensitive that he might not take your remark so kindly, and think that maybe, you shouldn’t post what you did. Regardless of how good the setup was. :rolleyes:
I’m not defending blowero or saying he’s totally innocent. But you ain’t helping yourself by continuing this childish crap.
Yes this thread is a train wreck and was a horrible idea. That still does not stop me from feeling what I feel.
I feel like blowero is way too quick to cross the line of what is a justified and what is an irrational response. That is what I wanted to say. I sat and watched him perpetuate 3 fucking pages about what a cunt I am and in some the most foul and inappropriate language possible. Those kind of comments are hard to forget.
Perhaps I am being childish. Maybe I do bear a grudge. It doesn’t mean I have no right to be angry when I am insulted.
When Coldfire said drop it, I took that to mean in that thread which I did.
So step right up and tell me how stupid, childish and petty I am. It will not change the way I feel.
1. “He responded with the rationale of ‘But she started it and besides it’s just not fair!!!’”
Bzzt! Actually he said “Hrrmmph! She started it…” The tone of which leads me to believe that he wasn’t too upset.
2. “It is obvious to any reader that Blowero hates me with an ire that burns like a thousand suns…”
Actually it’s not obvious at all.
“but, I can honestly say this hatred is neither mutual…”*
Yeah, you’re just taking potshots at him in IMHO and opening pit threads about him while apparantly seething in anger over his “perpetuat[ing] 3 fucking pages about what a cunt I am and in some the most foul and inappropriate language possible.” Nuthin’ mutual about that.
3. “nor well deserved.”
Judging from your OP I have my doubts.
4. “Blowero, get a grip on yourself and stop taking everything so fucking personal, OK?”
Oh yes, Blowero, please get a grip on yourself. :rolleyes:
5. “Your little temper tantrums are juvenile and downright tiresome and besides everything is not about you.”
Except, apparantly, for the comment The Mermaid made about you in the IMHO thread, and this entire Pit thread too, of course.
6. “No really it’s not.”
Yes really it is.
By the way, have you let Blowero in on the fact that you’ve pitted him? I don’t see anything in the IMHO thread.
What are you talking about? I’m lost or your meds are better than mine. His response to your taunt in the thread was pissy but fairly mild. Where are these three pages of foul language and invective you cite?
astro I suspect that she’s referring to the ‘history’ they have together. I don’t recall it personally, but I don’t believe she’s attempting to say the linked thread is the one that was 3 pages long of horrible posts.
perhaps I wasn’t clear. In this thread, she mentions that they have ‘history’ (ie they’ve had some negative dealings w/each other in the past). The linked thread isn’t the ‘history’. I suspect she’s saying that in there’s a thread from way before where the two got ugly w/each other. And that’s why she thinks he ‘over reacted’ to her post in the linked thread.
Mermaid, you aren’t fooling anyone. You are obviously still angry about the tiff we had a while back, and your little “joke” was posted as revenge. To be honest, you’re kind of scaring me now, and I’d really appreciate it if you would just stop directing any posts at me, no matter how strong the urge to take a jab at me, and I will do the same for you, o.k.?
