Me to some person defending the boards becoming pay;
"'It is precisely because of the never-ending attacks on the authors and fans of the books launched by you and yours that I am for the switch to a pay board. '
You moron. You are for the boards being murdered. The authors should expect criticism - YOU GET THAT IN THE INDUSTRY! Especially when it's on a topic to do with eschatology, which always generated dispute. If they can't handle it, they shouldn't have written the books. Criticism and attacks come with the territory. They need to grow up and act like mature adults."
Free In Christ in response;
"It is things like calling people "morons' and using bad language and a host of other things that have been a problem on this mb for a long time - and looks like it is finally culminating in a decision by Tyndale that many don't like.
This board was only going to be a Christian as we made it - and too many were more interested in namecalling, swearing, breaking rules, attacking....no wonder Tyndale decided as they did."
Obi-Wan Kenobi replying to Free;
"SHUT UP AND LET US HURT. There is no language bad enough in all the WORLD to explain how I feel right now. GET OFF OF YOUR FREAKING STUPID "CHRISTIAN" SOAPBOX AND SHUT UP. It bloody HURTS LIKE HELL, don't you DARE try and argue anyone's feelings away. NONE of us would be this bad if they HADN'T shut down the boards, anyhow. GO AWAY. Holy crap, you are so freaking heartless."
Me in reply to Free;
"SHUT UP YOU STUPID BLOODY MORON AND OPEN YOUR FREAKING EYES! Get of your holier-than-thou horse and realise what the MacPhisto is happening here. I am never like this. I am never this mad. I've used more bad language today than in this entire bloody year because nothing else can express how bloody pissed off I am. Tyndale should just get lost. They obviously don't have a single bloody brain to think with, the pathetic fools."
Free, in response to me;
"This is why Tyndale is doing what they are doing - people who are behaving like you and Obi. I don't blame them after seeing how you post!"
Free, in response to Obi;
""Shut up"? Nope - you are showing the mb why tyndale sees a problem here.
It IS possible to hurt and not be obnoxious and ugly to other people. Obviously, some maturity is lacking on your part - but now you are justifying the decision that was made. : ("
FadeToBlack in response to Jenkins trying to claim this hurts him as much as us;
"You do not feel the same level of tragedy that we do...if you're going to be a jackass...be honest about it and don't offer us BULLS**T.
When you were crying, did this board comfort you? When you were betrayed, lonely, exhausted, happy, sad, full of rage and ecstatic were the boards and the people here for you?
You were off writing some stupid book to fill a contract. So don't tell us that have the same emotions as us...because you DON'T. PLAIN AND F**KING SIMPLE."
Me in reply to Free;
"YES, go Fade! Right on.
Free - 'This is why Tyndale is doing what they are doing - people who are behaving like you and Obi. I don't blame them after seeing how you post! '
Oh for the love of Zooropa, get your head out of the freaking mud and open your bloody eyes. IF THOSE MORONS WEREN'T DOING WHAT THEY WERE DOING, WE WOULDN'T HAVE A REASON TO BE LIKE THIS!
And what is wrong with how we post? We're expressing emotion, anger, and hurt, and all some morons can do is pick fault with how we express ourselves. What they are doing is stupid and childish, not what we're doing. There are no words to describe quite how angry and upset I am right now, how empty I feel, how crushed I am at the premature loss of YTF, and you idiots picking fault with how we express ourselves just get on my nerves something fierce. I've said words I've never said in a while, and sworn more in the last two days than I have all year, because no other words can possibly express how I feel. People know I'm pissed off when I express myself like this. No word or phrase could quite possibly convey how I feel.
If you don't like the way I express myself, I don't give a rat's blue anus. I'm upset and angry and no words can possibly adequately state how I feel or what I'm thinking.
'Nope - you are showing the mb why tyndale sees a problem here.'
THERE IS NO BLOODY PROBLEM! You people who are finding 'problems' are obviously nit-picky holier-than-thou types with nothing better to do. You remind me of old people who sit at home and have nothing better to do than, and get a trip out of reporting their neighbours for every tiny little problem, like talking 'too loud' at 9pm.
Look, THERE IS NOT A PROBLEM HERE! DON'T SAY THERE IS ONE BECAUSE THERE IS NOT!"
The last 'NOT' should be in massive font.
I think that about says it all.
