The Rubber Room - Not Safe for Work / Re: Why the opposition to pacifism?
« on: September 14, 2010, 03:14:23 PM »
I honestly thought I didn't have to define myself as a non- pacifist. I feel no motivation to address the OP I barely follow the NAP as I have alluded to before. What I want Prizzly to understand is I follow the NAP because it is a good idea.
Pacifism is society suicide, the Amish have the U.S. protecting them without that they would be toast.
I don't think you're triggerhappy Mr. Shaw. I live in a place where there are less guns, I use trigger happy as a metaphor for "Act's before he/she thinks". I meant myself and BJ in this instance when he jumped on mrapplecastle for trolling and I jumped on a grenade for the "trolls" and got spanked. O.K.?
I was one of the people who ganged up on Prizzly, in the start. I tried to keep it light and funny, but I busted his balls like everyone else. Then BJ started his "Jack Palance in Shane" act with mrapplecastle and my natural hatred for authority made me fuck up my own account.
But I believe It should have been handled differently.
Dale is a skilled debater. He has strong princepals, he can take care of himself, yet people gave him more slack than Prizzly, most likely a 19 year old dumbass. I left the the websight before Dale made his pacifist sympathy's clear on this thread, so I can claim innocence on any hypocrisy. However I encourage a Innocent til proved guilty policy on trolls not a "He sounds like a troll - get him!". If Prizzly is what he says he is, his first messaging experience with older and wiser libertarians, was not a very pleasant one. I believe this is regrettable. I deal with kids, both mine and others, and they don't have a tendency to listen better when treated unfairly or disrespectfully. At 19 I myself was a major uncompromising, mean, bullying prick. It wouldn't have helped if a bunch of old guys ganged up on me.
But I'm not going to puss out either Mr. Shaw. If We collectively are going to start ganging up on every conceivable "troll" or FED, I have no place on this message board any more. I don't participate in what I conceive as witchhunts. Maybe You and BJ are right, and I am wrong here. Please just leave my account alone. I'll check back in in a month or two and see.
I apologise for any passive aggression that I may have inadvertently enacted.

Certainly a educational thread for me. A lot of folks showed some true colors here. Some ganged up on a 19 year old kid and used kidgloves on a more respected poster with the same beliefs. Some have shown to be easily coerced or threatened and some have shown themselves to be trigger happy. This Troll witchhunt is eerily similar to the FED witchhunt we have going. Sad really, but better to know about people early I guess. I am not busting on anyone, I am just disappointed in myself, I misjudged a lot of people. Thought I would mention it.
