Yup, you did. Although, you weren't calling out a particular person, RCW. You just told the people who sent you PMs trying to save your soul that they should try it with someone else, 'cause you're not interested.

OK...I recall that. I was trying to save some fingers, because I had gotten some LONG and heartfelt proselytizing PM's and I felt bad that they were wasting their time.

I haven't gotten any in a long while...still not interested.

You do know that you can make yourself invisible, so people don't know if you're logged on...or not.

Is this like a new rule from the board police?

I will be sure to check the "who is online" list before I post.

Sheesh.

The new rule should be: Don't post dumb stuff right before you go to bed.

The quickest way to douse these thread fires is to remove the fuel. With each "ITA with so and so" posting, this thread is bumped right back up to the top of the page. So, it's difficult for me to believe that it's that distasteful. Spider nailed it. I'm sure the PMer will inevitably satisfy some of your curiosities by looking to some of you for support, thereby revealing the identity. Be patient.

Oh, and BTW...good one nynaeve77. Yet another RCW Pot-meet-Kettle moment. Love it!!

It was actually a very nice post, I thought. There was nothing mean-spirited about it.

I don't really care WHO is PMing you...why add the fuel to the fire by posting this all over again? Especially when in the last thread you thanked someone for telling you how to block PMs?

I don't think that it's distasteful, but I do think that it's childish. If this person bothers you THAT much, ignore them and let it go. Again, I am not being nosey, I don't care who it is...I just don't understand the WHY of it all when you have the tools to ignore, and if Gretchen was aware of it before, why not just go directly to her again?

There really was no reason to put it here on the board other than to get responses from others who are in no way involved and to draw attention to yourself.

I think you're blowing what I said out of proportion. I just thought it was a particularly trivial reason for people to gang up on a poster, and ganging up on a poster really only works if that poster is offline. I did not make any suggestions or demands regarding others' behavior, so I don't know where the "board police" thing comes from.

Lots of people here are criticizing what the OP wrote. Why can't I state my mild annoyance with what they wrote? And you may (or possibly may not) remember that I have a reason to sympathize with people experiencing PM craziness.

I think it's interesting that her other post like this one (what, like 8 months ago?) got a VERY different overall reaction.

Could be this one is just getting more negative feedback because its' the second time the OP has posted it, but I still find it interesting how much general opinion changed, from "you go girl"/good spirits to condemnation for essentially the exact same thing.

I guess it could make a little bit of sense. If you're given assistance on how to proceed - PM a mod, deny PMs from the offender, etc, and then post a pretty identical post later... well, you've already been given advice on how to handle it the first time, and people will be less forgiving in round 2 perhaps.

I'm getting a kick out of it, too. I also got a kick out of how the mystery PM person did something "inexcusable" that Honeycurls will "never forget or forgive". Puh-leeze. I seem to remember something inexcusable Honeycurls did, too, and she was justifiably panned for it. I think it's time to move on, HC.

WOW. So many things on this thread rubbed me the wrong way. Someone made a comment about not being so forgiving the second time... who said the OP was asking for forgivness? All the people complaining about the thread being posted are the ones blowing it up! Many people here seem to think they are part of some elite group and try to make everyone feel like crap for posting. Get a life and get over yourself. If she already posted about it before and you don't want to hear it anymore DON'T RESPOND! For so many women on here to claim they are feminists and supportive and all that and then to treat other women this way (who you don't even know more than likely) is very hipocritical. All the passive agressivness is sickening. Some people have no class...

I recall it and what HC did was not "inexcusable." It may have been before you, MBFT.
