dialed back - but still...

  1. I used to make various threads complaining about being snubbed by other members of TB.

    The common theme among the folks who replied was that I put myself out there too much.

    So I dialed it back, mostly to focus on other things.

    I still get the occasional name calling & just snide comments, but I guess that is life.

    My ignore list grows almost weekly.

    Some people just make enemies. I don't have any advice for you.

    It's not paranoia if the world really is out to get you.

    When it's all said and done, it's just the internet. What is said here doesn't impact my life one way or another...

    It can't be taken personally, unless someone knows you personally, in that case, they probably say the same thing to your face... lol

  11. I usually review the user who is abusing me, and see if they post anything of merit.
    If they just go around being knobs in general, or they contribute nothing to actual gear talk, they're done.
    I haven't had the need to review your posts. At least you have a valid arguments, instead of just being contradictory for the sake of it.

    You're playing the odds my friend. I've been here for a few years but mostly just a lurker. You post a lot. I would think varying opinions and comments are to be expected.

  13. Actually, that's a valid point, because I have known people in the past who would be total knobs to be online, but in person they were nice. I even struck up a friendship with one guy like that, and he betrayed me in a big way.
    I should have known better.

    I was even talking to a friend in Thailand about another forum member (different forum) that uses what he knows about him personally (family stuff) to bug him online, but in person he's the nicest guy.
    I had similar run-ins with the same person, and given my past experience, I just blank the guy, because he's obviously got some pretty large psychological problems.

    I toned it down, not only in attitude, but in volume as well.
    I guess some posters still have a bone to pick with me over past incidents.

    I told my shrink that I think everyone hates me. He said that's crazy, everyone doesn't know you.

    Why do you get snubbed and I don't? Maybe I just don't know snubbery when I see it. Or is it snubbage?

    I've been here 10 years. Not one person on my ignore list.

    You've been here 1 year. By my estimate, you will surpass my 10 year post count by the end of the year.

    When you put yourself out there, you succeed.
