AygWhy do you think this board is boring now?

Re: AygWhy do you think this board is boring now?

  • How can I put the delicately. Yes, there are double standards between regs and newbs. Get the fuucck over it. It's always been that way, always will be that way. You cannot just join a group of feisty girls and say whatever the fluck you want and expect to be accepted with open arms. That doesn't happen IRL, it sure as shiiit is not going to happen in the interwebs.

    Then I think you and I both read the AE thread differently.  I read it as them having a discussion and agreeing that certain behaviors didn't happen.  She didn'd tell him to do anything.  But maybe I read it wrong.  If she told him waht to do, then that's shittty
  • No need to put it delicately, I was just giving a reason why there aren't that many new posters.  No skin off my nose.

    And not to P & R, but I am leaving work (to not seem like I flame and then run away)

    I think people get all huffy about this because there is a whole crop of "regs" now that waltzed right in here.  There are few people left here who really got it bad as a newb.  VERY few.

    </div><div>I didn't get an answer in the thread, but it came across to me like she would have initiated the convo and probably come up with what she was uncomfortable with. And he just agreed. I mean, I can't see him laying down some of those ground rules for himself. So I would agree I still felt like it was her telling him what to do.</div>

    I think we do see it differently because I look at it as a classic example of why you DONT try to tell your H what to do.

    When I read it I laughed and my first thought was "well no sh!t.  What did you think was gonna happen after laying out ultimatums"

    Oh that part I agree with.  If you can't trust your FI you shouldn't be getting married.  But regardless of what happened and how it happened, OP realized after all this that she doesn't trust her FI.  That's why I suggested it be addressed.  None of us were there when the convo happened, so honestly idk who is in the wrong.  But if you don't trust your FI, you should be talking it out/getting counseling before you walk down the aisle.

    <div>I think it's a combination of things. I think we flame plenty of noobs. Noobs that do get flamed hardcore tend not to stick around anymore. Other noobs manage to not get flamed because they are not full to the brim with crazy. It seems to be the mild-mannered and nice noobs that turn into regs these days. Then those people are less likely to flame newer noobs. It's a vicious cycle.</div><div>
    </div><div>I think the problem is that the crazy noobs that we have these days are not the kind of crazy noobs that stick around despite flaming.</div>

    Dot. You're misunderstanding "I don't care."  I've explained this in the past more than a few times. I read something, I respond. But by the next day (hell by the time the page has reloaded), I'm over it.  It doesn't affect my life. 

    In general, I'm not a grudge holder at all, and I have a pretty shittastic memory, though.  That's what I mean by I don't care.

    ETA: go read my entire posting history.  Since January, I bet the vast majority of those posts are from random bullshit chit-chat conversations that I don't even remember.
