Wow! A sparkly new sub-forum! Yeah, silence is sure sweet sometimes (gotta luv alliteration
A few years ago on another board I frequent, there was a post asking folks about their personal beliefs. Oh boy. I happily told about mine, I didn't comment on anyone else's, simply shared mine. Well, sometime later the OP, whose beliefs were apparently the total opposite, took nearly everything I said and dissected it in a multi-post diatribe. Disagree with me, that's just fine, but to attack my views (and they actually said this was what they were doing) and claim that I was ignorant, did incense me. I responded with questionings to their beliefs.
Anyhoodle, another poster chimed in and said I was being rude, hostile and insulting. Excuse me? What about the one who started it? They didn't say anything about the OP for they'd agreed with them, and I didn't feel I'd been what I was being accused of. I felt potshotted by that second poster, but I held back, remained silent and though tough, did not respond, and ignored the thread from then on. It wasn't worth it. Then about a month or so later the poster who claimed me to be insulting, hostile, etc., was suddenly banned from the board (on an unrelated matter). Heh. How come I will always believe is found in Romans 12:19. A little side-note, the OP didn't get banned, but they haven't been around that forum in some years as well. Ah well.
