Thuggery wins

Postby Penta » Mon Dec 14, 2009 2:16 pm

I always said I wouldn't be driven off the flag by thugs. Now I'm giving in. The thugs win.

I've always been game for the normal rough and tumble, but now that it's got to the stage where I can log on in the morning to find a series of posts (one now deleted) with images depicting and supporting kicking or punching me in the cunt, the game is no longer worth the candle. Violent, misogynistic aggression coupled with lies, distortions, and straightforward slander is not what I come here for.

The ignore function is all very well, but not much use when three of those responsible for some of the thuggery are moderators and the system doesn't allow you to ignore moderators. I can fight my corner fairly, but I'm not prepared to descend to the same level of viciousness, nor will I breach confidences, even when they could be used to refute some of the charges flung at me.

So enough's enough. I'm off. Penta has left the building. For now, at least.

Shes never interfered with me. I have no complaints about her.
Same here.
Mega ditto.
I met her once and I found her to be a nice lady. Not kookey in any way.
Penta has always been gracious, kind and very sane in all my interactions with her.

I don´t blame you at all, penta. There has got to be greener pastures than here. My wife has told me several times to leave this board as there´s too many twisted creeps running the show. I think I just might leave as well.

Your wife is right. If your life is as shite as you claim you should be spending your time working your arse off to improve it instead of pissing it away on the Internet trying to justify your poverty to anonymous people who don't give a damn if you live or die with your tongue stuck to a frozen radiator. I know I don't.

Come to sunny Taiwan where thousands of superfluous Canadians make excellent coin teaching English. Economic migration isn't just for little shifty-eyed brown people any more.

Listen to the whinging. You haven't even been proper fucked with yet.

If you think this place is full of twisted creeps, no wonder your revolution never happens..... I'm sorry revolutionary comrades, we'll have to postpone the general strike again because my wife says I have to be home by nine.

Sorry to see that the foul mouthed antics of a select view has got to you. I wonder what motivates them to focus on you. My guess is that they are terrified of someone, and a woman who has an opinion that differs with theirs. Even more terrifying to them is that you won't take the argument down to their sexual organs. The side of effect of this is that they no longer have an anonymous female to batter with their keyboard. I don't remember anyone getting vitriolic against them but they seem to have no sense of scale or appropriateness. Any shrinks out there who can dissect why Flipflop and Nowanmai seem obsessed with Penta?

i'd be more interested in a shrink who could tell us why Penta persists in pursuing a bruising/ beating/battering as she sees it in the one arena she might be expected to prevail - a war of words as it were - her very own miliau and, one would expect, her weapon of choice.

I think Penta is entitled to her view and comments as much as those who bash her are. If you disagree with someone you can ignore them, argue with them or change your own opinion but insulting them and deliberately using pictures of women who are tied up or incessentaly calling someone a "cunt" well past the point of humor is more a sign of FlipFlop's failings than Penta's penchant for taking an opposing view. It is not the goal of the forum to chase away intelligent contributors, regardless of their viewpoint.

And Denise, don't forget her .... Flipflop, Nowanmai ...... the "Mean Girls" of BFC. They are haters, American slang y'all for "one who strongly disapproves of and/or is jealous of someone".
I do hope Penta doesn't stay away for long. I don't agree with all of her points either, but I appreciate her learned and thought out remarks and observations, just as I do Nowonmai's. Reading their pov's, that is how I learn. Too bad that Nowonmai can be such an ass and goes over the line so often, he undermines his own intelligence when he does that .
There is a lot to be said for civil discourse ...... a whole lot. And labeling Penta as a drama queen, how junior-high is that? Instead y'all should be admiring her courage to stand up and state the obvious at the sure risk of insults.
Would that you losers have as much cojones, or class.
