INTEGRITY and TRUST (Public PM's)
Word of warning: You might use caution before sending anyone a
Consider PM's to be PUBIC Messages instead since you may not be able to trust the person you send them to and the person you share pm's with may not have any honor, integrity. You may have good intentions in sending a friendly note but do not respect in kind response. For example, I liked reading joedabrkr's posts and no ill feelings toward him but finally, it dawned on me how hostile he is towards me. Finally, came to the conclusion that we just can't communicate. Period. If a person doesn't delete your pm's: that might tell you something. Blackmail? Saving them for retaliation? Who know's? It doesn't make you feel all warm and cozy nor want to trust a person who does this, though; does it, even if you want to think the best of them and give them a benefit of a doubt.
You would like to think that you can trust your financial advisor, accountant, doctor or lawyer.
I made the mistake of thinking I could share PM's (I thought of them as personal messages) without having them publicly posted.
The first incidence was when Pratoman told me that Bobby Bully was getting to him and I was concerned that Bobby Bully would be banned. I sent him a message and encouraged him to show respect for other posters or he could be banned, he immediately posted my pm. Incidentally, similarity of traits in others here, too: I agree.
However, I will have to believe that joedabrkr isn't Bobby Bully since he told me he isn't him. I'm sure he wouldn't have posted my pm if I hadn't blocked him from responding. I publicly apologize for this. I might have vented my anger towards the cyber bullies unfairly on him alone. I apologize for this. It's obvious pratoman and Bobby Bully are the same person.
I will use caution with pm's in the future since you can't automatically think that the pm's are between you and someone else and that the other person is as nice, trustworthy as you are.
Use CAUTION with PM's (that is, PUBLIC pm's). For that matter, even email: it does make you wonder that people who are trusted with handling someone's financial business can't even be trusted with a PM, doesn't it. Reflect caliber of people in this career field.
Too bad people can't be trusted, too bad that people don't have your best interests at heart (caution when selecting a financial advisor!); too bad people don't have honor or integrity.
For the people who weren't bipolar aliases and who did have a kind word for me (anonymous? starka): thank you! I apologize if I mistaked you for a cyberbully.
I only post a pm as I did if someone unfairly implicates me. But unfortunately, my natural instinct is to be trusting but sadly, people have their own agenda and hidden motives: one must be reserved, use caution and not readily trust others.
I've learned much more about human nature after experiencing the cyberbullies here.
People without God in their life are inherently evil, in my opinion. We must pray for them.
I'm sure others have learned from what I have experienced here on this site. BEWARE of the cyberbullies lurking and ready to pounce at a moment's notice. Hey, just be nice and send them a little friendly pm and tell them to have a nice day (afterall, they probably don't have any clients)!
You should be smart enough to understand that whenever you commit something to writing in an email, letter, pm, or text message and then send it to someone else you have also made it available for them to share with others.
There is no “secret contract” that forbids the posting of PM’s. Although generally the term “private message” would imply otherwise.
Perhaps if you were not so annoying and did not fill people’s inboxes with such venomous filth(after publicy accusing them of being ‘bullies’) they would not feel the need to post your pm’s?
I think it’s good that people on this board are getting to see what you are really like. Here’s an oldie but a goodie from way back in March(obscenities edited for public decency):
<span =“lgText”>Subject: i DISLIKE u.
really dislike you and anyone like you who tries to control who posts
on forums like they have to get YOUR approval, JERK! You are the MORON.
You have a low IQ because you are a very hateful bitter person with no people skills. An asshole on the Internet is really an (bleep)hole.
nothing else to say to you.
ok, I guess I'm a PM bully. The truth hurts.
The End. Case Closed. You Win.
Have a nice day!
What he forgot to say was that I didn't initiate the PM without prompting: the pm was AFTER I was cyberbullied so I returned the favor but I'm not one to publicly humuliate, I just prefer to tell the person what I think via pm's.
Of course I'm not a PM Bully: I just know this is a lose:lose situation so I'm giving the site back to the cyber bullies to bully all they want...but not you joedabrkr, of course, you're not a cyber bully: as you say, you are only a victim of vicious (of course, unwaranteed) pm's sent to you with no provcation on your part.
So when sending you a pm, it means "public" since you will probably post it. Thanks for explaining.
I get it now: if someone posts and one responds "pathetic moron" it just means they are exercising their free speech rights. "You don't have a right to post here! <derogatory, bash/trash comment......<> edited out.
This forum means nothing to me; no interest. As I plainly said: just Don't take kindly to being bullied. By the way, all of the attention and adoring affection from my fans was in topics that I initiated. (But that will be our little secret...shhhh).
BTW: I like u best of the cyber bullies: u are just a harmless grump.
I've unbanned u: feel froth all the venom my way you want without worry of me ever posting your pm or accusing you of stalking. For I prefer for the sender to TRUST me and consider the communications just between me and the sender/recipient: but that's just me.
Isn't he adorable, folks? He's like a little, cuddly teddybear (covered with spikes!...oops, that slipped..little joke.)
The End. Thanks for sharing. Byebye now.
If the forum means nothing to you, as you say in your post above, why do you spend half your life on it. I have seen posts by you, that are timestamped at 5:30 in the morning.
You are a lunatic and an idiot
Go away. Oh I forgot, you dont have the ability to do that, do you. Even though the forum means nothing to you.

I was briefly expressing my opinion. There’s a big different between a two word comment and “cyber bullying”. You’re way too sensitive to be posting here. Your reaction, too, was completely out of proportion to the supposed offense.
This forum means nothing to me; no interest.

[quote=farotech]Parachute (aka Freedom Advocate): GO AWAY[/quote]
I second that, lets start a petition.
I'll gladly go away.
I don't care for the caliber of people who post on this site.
Now I know you will post and post to attempt to get me to stay ...but
I'm leaving and
Wish you the Best!
May God forgive you for your evil ways. Repent before it's too late.
Thanks so much Tri SIN. No need to try to get me to encourage to post. Repent from your sins, Tri Sin before it's too late.
bye bye now!
" Look at the real suffering in the Middle East. Consider the real economic poverty of many earth humans. Even Nature is threatened. Everywhere we look, a small gesture on our part can make a difference.
Let us deploy our sound mindfulness to celebrate the moment and not manufacture a mockery of the gift of peace, rather, enjoy this day in gratitude.
And forgive me, everyone, if I have offended you, and I do not begrudge anyone. God bless us all. Amen. "
Goodbye all. I'm leaving.
If you continue to 'encourage' me to stay: here's my response
kiss my cottage cheese ass.
I don’t think you can leave. If you could you would have about 40 post back. I don’t know what you are getting from this but you certainly are entertaining.
hmmm, you shouldn't be allowed to spend money until you can spell it.
Sure I can leave: just shut the hell up!
[quote=Billyclub]See! You can't stop.[/quote]
Hmmm, I see. Well, don't respond to me and maybe I will.
