It is with heavy heart I write this. Any of you who know me know that I have never started a pit thread and do not frequent this forum.
Now, however I have been pushed to my limit.
Y’know I LOVE this community. It’s been a wonderful place for me in so many ways. I’ve learnt, laughed, cried and made some wonderful friends. I’ve even fallen in love with a wonderful girl here.
But as with everything there’re problems when you put human beings into an equation. I occasionally find it disappointing that some people here indulge in character assasination or vent in a way that only truly displays insensitivity to other’s feelings.
There are times when this wonderful board displays an intolerance that is directly opposed to what I thought it stood for.
Tonight a wonderful girl cried herself to sleep because some people took it upon themselves to pass judgement on her. People who, with only a cursory and superficial understanding of what was going on, immediately started bandying around some truly dreadul names. People she thought were her friends.
Your immature schoolyard antics, so thoughtlessly aired have deeply hurt another human being. And why? What did you get out of it? Jollies? Any satisfaction? If so, then I pity your standard of life that you need to put down another to make yourself feel good.
The phone calls alluding to things, the anonymous email (proving very difficult to trace), some of the general comments… you know what? No matter how well-intentioned, they’re not helping: only pouring gasoline on the fire. If you have something to say, then say it. Not partially but with all of the facts. And don’t hide - say it to my face. At least that way I’ll respect you and your right to your opinion.
For I don’t respect you at the moment. I think anyone who would behave this way is gutless.
I can turn to my TRUE friends and they accept my news, offer observations - not necessarily in agreeance - and provide discussion. They don’t go around behind my back calling me or mine names.
I guess I don’t have as many friends here as I thought.
I’m not going to stoop to your infantile name-calling level: your actions denounce you louder than my words.
And you’re not worth it anyway.
