Look, I'll just be blunt here, and I'm not pointing any fingers at any specific person(s). There seems something slightly dysfunctional about the way this has all proceeded. I'd be much more interested in getting to the real crux of the issue here - how can we all work together and make things a little less dysfunctional - or maybe not dysfunctional at all. It takes very little effort, comparatively, to write down a set of rules and have everyone agree to follow a specific set of rules. I've always done my utmost to follow the forum rules, and I always will, that much should go without saying. The situation has been EXTREMELY bewildering to me in many ways for a number of reasons, and I'd be lying if I didn't say I had a very different take on the whole situation just two days ago. I would love nothing more than to be able to take certain individuals off of ignore, but the things they have said over many months have been deeply hurtful and they were completely uncalled for, imho. It's not like a want to hold a grudge against anyone or have any ill will towards anybody. This whole thing has been extremely frustrating for me, because despite acting with the best of intentions, a lot of miscommunication has obviously taken place. And I only found about this thread by accident! It's not like anyone pointed it out to me. But I had been thinking about coming to the communications section to try to get someone to listen to what I felt was an ongoing pattern of abuse and aggressive behavior, I was really feeling very besieged by that point. That's not a good place to be when all you're trying to do is to participate equally in online discussions and avoid unnecessary drama.
