Calling me a spammer, deleting my blog post, ignoring copyright laws, ostracizing me, productive member of the community, leads to a slow death of this community. Unfortunately, I did not notice that - I was helping to revive the headless dead tbd body.
This community is clinging to life, but there are no ideas that feed it, therefore I predict that it will die. Forbidding links, deleting blog postings – total ignorance, a sign of a very mindless policy and disrespect to one of the oldest members of the tbd community – me. Community self-destruction process started. The results will appear very soon.
I thank all people that expressed their concern and support to me.
I understand that harsh words and bluntness hurt. I also understand that actions hurt much more. I give a chance to everybody to communicate with me. My door is always open. But later on I make the decision regarding communicating with the person or not. The difficult moments when people show who they are make all the difference.
Hey there Catnip, I would like to add that there are many rude people in the world and on TBD, There needs to be changes in all people I think, if they want a good and fun community. Rudeness happens sometimes for a reason but people can bounce back if the people on the front page would realize that they do not own the front page nor are they "the TBD community" This community has many people and when all work together then it is a good place to be. Part of what Alla also posted was that she, maybe feels that TBD is choking itself to death. It could happen.
A community works together; if one of the front page gang members has a problem I think they need to learn to communicate.Trying to Punish me, Alla or anyone else because someone does not understand a situation or they disagree with a circumstance is not a community.
If one member of this community hurts, if it truly was a community people would come together they would discuss it, they would work it through. Well this is not so with this community and I did not come up with that. The community has proven that. So that only their little gang is supposed to feel welcome or comfortable on the front pages. Only they are supposed to grip and whine and complain or have an issue.
Alla has just as much right to feel as she does as anyone else. So far as I can see or observe there is no one on this site that is one ounce more entitled than any other. The front page gang, seems to think that if they don't feel like including someone they don't have to, correct, then don't come on someone else's discussion and gripe because you don't like it!
There are ways to express one's self. May I ask those of you who object to Alla's way, is lying and slander also a part of your accepted behavior just because it wasn't done to you. You are sick of hearing it and call it tantrums (Quinn) ok lets start a new game then, randomly we will take turns seeing how ugly and mean spirited we can be to each one of the, your front page gang, we will trash your good names and try and turn people into jerks that are full of simple meanness. Of course it wouldn't work now, Because you would know it was coming. If you want me to shut up, too bad, no seriously, too bad. I did not start it nor did Alla, She was told according to her that her work was being deleted, she may not have even had time to save her work, or move her work. She didn't kill anyone. She perhaps stepped on a guideline, well now we all know that TBD guidelines are pretty on and off now don't we. There is a good team set up now, they seem to truly care but it is going to take time. And maybe if Alla was given some support and time she could have worked this through.
Alla, what is wrong with you, are you not a part of the front page bashing club?
You don't like me, anyone, sorry, I am a good person and I like all of you. I did not start your issues you did, you all did it all without me here and no it will not go away until those who were and are still involved work it out. That is community.
Yes I did see that Maria, set up a thread and some people posted to try and help work through the problem with Alla. Alla is not yet settled with what she is being told. So some of you think because it isn't about you or your thread that ok you are tired of someone not you complaining. Where are you from? Why not jump in and help be a part of the solution. That goes a little further than trying to run her out of town or bad mouthing her. Yes, Alla your word choice was not real polite, However she has already said she wanted your attention, she got it, she even got mine and I try to stay away from the ugliness on the front page , exactly where I used to live before the, TBD GUIDELINES WERE WASHED RIGHT DOWN THE DRAIN. So maybe Alla has a right to be upset, I think she deserves to at least have YOUR all too kind support while she works it through for herself. Because we all know how very kind and loving you are, what faithful and good friends you are, right? She is entitled and just because it's not a gang want, desire or discussion does not mean that Alla and her feelings, questions and situation is not as valid as your questions or feelings or remarks.
You don't want the community to fall apart then be an actual community and stop the gang work. I mean you want to talk boring, you wish to stop what you choose to call drama so you don't have to deal with something wrong or concerning to someone else. Too bad, YOU GO SOMEWHERE ELSE, just like you so rudely say to others. You go somewhere where there is only you and talk your selves silly. You don't own this site, nor do I or anyone, For a social experiment it could fail, because of many things. Problems will not just go away because you can be a big bunch of bullies, try being a community, or just caring human beings. You can hate all you wish, you can ignore all you wish but these front pages belong to the front page! Not to any group of people. So keep skipping over and don't communicate, keep lashing out and being ugly, you are sealing the fact that it will return again and again and that nothing will change. Ok go America, that's partly why we are where we are! What a great community.
Alla, no one must agree or disagree with you, but it is my feeling that they should listen and try to help work it through, oh yeah, That would take an actual community! Blessings, ya'll, "The one" you don't want to hear from, Well I didn't wish to wake up and find and read what I did either, I had no choice. Want to deal with it? I do....I'll be back...
Tina, just to clear up some details: my blog posting was deleted on this website. My original blog is totally OK. I take good care of it - I have a special domain and my own private servers. Nobody will ever touch it.
I posted my blog here because I wanted to spark a conversation with people I liked about the subjects I am passionate about. That did not happen. I will have to survive and learn some social networking lessons.
Robin, I understand how bitter you are - your business failed. I understand why you are not around too much - who wants to be reminded of the business failure. That’s why I think you dumped moderators’ duties on ignorant people.
Finally, I will say, I've been hurt and not afraid of it. I know how to survive.
I wish you the best in your next business endeavor, if that ever happens for you, Robin.
