I know it sounds like I'm holding grudges. I'm not, or I don't think I am, since I can't actually remember who posted what - it's just something to note and be aware of when moving on.

What has changed since 2005 and 2006 is that NC is now capitalizing on the investment it made all those years ago in establishing NC.com. NC is now not only an online community, but a business that markets its expertise in textured hair care research, market to consumer products, etc. In essence, by the simple fact of being a board member, one contributes to the earnings of NC.com. The personal question for me is why would I continue to support, in ultimately some financial form by my very existence as a board member (and in other ways by purchasing from Curlmart, taking surveys, and submitting product reviews) to a community that does not practice what it preaches. Healthy relationships are a two way street, mutually reinforcing...

If you want to throw down on the net (which honestly I don't see the point of), don't renege on it privately, or act like everything on the internet is trivial then be concerned with whether certain posters are upset with you. I cannot stand two faced people.

Now if someone made a personal comment--not a generalized racist/sexist etc. remark, but something that pertains directly to personal information you shared... maybe I can be a little more understanding of sending a pm, but even then I can only imagine that being acceptable if you considered someone your friend. I don't know...

and i never get why ppl act like it's abnormal for someone to remember what a poster said in the past. it seems like having a good memory is only a bad thing on message boards. if you said or did something in the recent past that is in line w/ you current behavior, or has an effect on how i view and interact with you font now, i'm going to bring it up. idk why ppl like waving off things that they said/did like a few weeks ago like it happened several years ago and it's irrelevant.

and i don't buy for a minute that ppl just completely wipe the slate clean w/ every new interaction they have w/ ppl on the board. it's not possible and it doesn't make any sense to do so. if i think a poster tends to read too deeply into my posts/ takes my jokes seriously, i just don't direct those kinds of posts to them. or if i know a poster likes to debate even the most frivolous of subjects, i just wont engage them if i'm not in the mood. there are some topics that i don't even participate in b/c i already know which side most of you will fall on, and for some of you i can guess (correctly) exactly how you will respond to certain things and what you will say. i don't see how you can possibly interact w/ ppl w/o developing some kind of perception (not harboring a grudge, not making in depth analyses about their real lives) of them. i don't know why anyone would WANT to do that. and really, half the time, the ppl who claim this will at some point end up reaching back a few months for some quote that will prove their point against whoever their talking to.

i'm rambling now, so i'll stop.

And that's where I don't get the big deal because to me.. yeah it's just the damn internet and it's not earth shattering serious. We don't really "know" eachother (except for a few that have opted to meet offline) and nothing I say should really affect a person that damn bad considering they will probably never see me in life and if they did they'd have no clue it was me anyway. I don't agree with plenty that's said here and there are many members here that I know I wouldn't get along with in RL or even consider being friends with at all.. but on the net. It's not a big deal. I'm certainly not going to go out of my way to throw some bs in their face over some past stuff that I thought was inappropriate, offensive, or stupid unless they try to come for me all wrong. If they treat me decently after we've hashed out whatever.. okay fine. I will keep chatting with them, joking with them, etc.

I just don't hold grudges like that.. I honestly don't. In real life and on the internet once I've hashed something out with a person. Sure.. I remember stuff and act accordingly..but I'm not worried about some stuff we hashed out. If we are cool..we are cool. But I can't stand the two faced-back stabbing high school skhit that goes on in situations like this.. if you gotta damn problem just say so. And I think a lot of folks are just as sneaky and slithery as damn snakes and remember stuff JUST so they can be snarky and start shkit with no justification.

I feel more or less like if you have an issue with someone..then hash it the hell out like a grown person don't sit there acting like all is well and then bam you toss out some stupid bs grudge stuff you've been just WAITING to say as soon as you can "catch" a person. GTFOWDBS.

I do understand "the hole my mule" concept..I think in a lot of cases it's the appropriate thing to do.

Frankly, I don't think there is enough open dialogue when there is an issue. Everybody wants everyone else to just STFU unless they in the Amen corner big upping what they say. I guess it's just not something I relate to very well. If I have a problem with something someone said.. I just say it and my ultimate desire is to hash it out so that we can be civil and not hostile to eachother.

But I notice it's difficult to do that here because a lot of people do hold grudges and have to throw constant snark at that person and then play dumb when confronted. Knowing damn well they are on swoll because they dropped the ball and punked out in the first place when they should have said something when the mess was going on but they stood by watched it ain't do shkit and now they mad. Then all late and wrong they wanna come balls to the wall cause they done built up some strength or decided "they just ain't holding their mule no more".. and I feel like.. no I can't get with that sort of dumb stuff. Sit your punk ass down some where..shoulda handled that shkit like grown folk long time ago.
I don't think I've ever sent a PM because someone offended me.

I have to disagree with the idea that it doesn't matter what someone you don't know thinks. Of course for certain things that's true, but it does have an effect on me, even indirect as it may be, that someone holds racist/sexist/etc. views. Those things affect everyone. Now I get that the odds of changing anyone are slim, but then there are people who will tell you that they did change, and it was because there were people who were willing to question and contest their views.

My words were butt hurt ( SN-- I pick up too much of the vernacular around these parts and it sounds so out of place IRL sometimes) and I think sometimes getting that invested in what an anonymous person thinks is too much IMO.
