You got her GOOOOODDDD... did your homework Lenzi... Love it... ya know...you throw attitude & insults in one's forum face....you are asking for a Reaction
Frankly, I find this attitude, and in fact this entire thread disgusting.
So one person makes sexual jokes at a poster, and in response he/she calls him a "fool" and that's supposed to be the pot calling the kettle black? These things are equivalent?
Here's what I see. I see a cabal of regulars here ganging up on a newer member that has the gall to disagree with them. Of course this new member will not last long when everyone else is against them. It doesn't take a genius to predict that.
I saw the exact same thing happen in the thread "my husband gets mad that I go to work functions after work hours" in general relationships forum. And that thread was deleted by a mod yesterday.
This person (Mapper) came asking for help, a few people, who probably just glanced at her posts and didn't carefully read them, insinuated she was meeting men and trying to cheat on her husband, she (naturally) got angry at that and told them off (not with insults), and in response several regulars swarmed on her like buzzards on a dead corpse.
I don't like it when that happens, but I'm just wired to always defend the underdog. And I like new members to stick around, even if they don't always agree with me. Crazy me.
Of course, now I run the risk of the same thing happening to me, but I have been on this and similar forums many times before, and know how to handle myself a little better. Many of the new people don't know all the "tricks" and don't know the best ways to defend themselves when attacked.
I've followed this thread ever since the OP started it and laughed to myself . I knew what would have been the outcome, because that person has three of four different screen names / identities here on TAM.They just keep reincarnating or switching usernames whenever they get banned.
I'm glad you are so sure about that, but I certainly am not.
