      It has been a while. But then, two or so Wraps in five or so months. It's a tough get. Keep your chin up. I believe in you.

      And, of course, free ponies.

        Me, for one. In the old days when someone posted something that wasn't worth responding to after an early Wrap I'd step around it and leave an empty space. I'm not sure if the capacity to delete that sort of post was in the mix then, but it is now. I don't know about May 7 particularly. I know I decided to pull one of the couple of Wraps because I wanted a different lineup. Could have been that one. Who knows? Doesn't matter.


        If having your own words put where they're easy to find upsets you this much you should probably put more thought into them.

        It's fun to see you squirm while you're 'decimated' by Glorydaz. It does my heart good to see you meet your match in a 'Battle of the Wits.'

          Hiya GM. You feeling okay today?

          You might want to consider a little more bran in your diet. See if you can get a post that holds together better.

            Walk away from these two. They're poison.

            Don't let them take good from you.

              I thought this was a better solution for everyone.


              See, I don't believe that it does. The people who'd make something out of my locking it are exactly the same people who would have nothing at all to say about the gay baiting nonsense she laced several unresponsive posts with.


              I stand and trade, if without lowering difference to sex or faith, in every thread linked. This isn't about avoiding anything other than trolling. I chose to exercise a thing the site granted me the power to do instead of involving mods in policing conduct that violates at least two rules. Read over the posts in question. They aren't much.



              Almost forgot, I included glory as an experiment. I put her in without the linkage that would draw her to find the answer to a question I had in mind.

              And I got the answer I expected.

              The way you should have done it it report her or place her on ignore. Then don't go quoting her in this thread. Let the forum staff decide if her posts need to be actioned upon.

                    Ah, the beauty of the ignore feature.

                      In hindsight, I suppose taking her off ignore was an optimistic mistake. And it's then up to me to correct that.

                      But for the record, if someone has an objection to how their writing is presented, feels something was altered in meaning by omission, that sort of thing, I'm game to discuss it here. Always have been.

                      And I really appreciate that, but don't worry about me on that count. GM is harmless, whether he means to be or not. Glory I'm going to have to put on ignore, because I get the same feeling from her that I had with Voldemort. That's just not going to go anywhere worth going and I really should have known that at the outset, but you get away for a while you can forget how it is here.

                      Not to worry. This is solved already.

                        • One thing I love about this place and some of the people I've met here is how it and they can help you stop and reflect when you don't particularly want to do it.

                          This should probably go in the forum life thread, but one thing I've noticed is that an environment like TOL will never do anything to you or for you that you aren't a party to...so at every juncture we have the choice of deciding whether to be a part of helping someone up or cultivating their worst impulse. As a Christian who should be mindful of his witness, both in the fray of faith and the smaller moments unrelated to its defense, I can do better than to encourage someone to find their worst self-expression. And until I'm sure I can manage that consistently, focus on issues entirely and make my case, humorously or not, as gently as it can be made within reason, I'm going to take the temptation out of my diet.

                          Another great day on TOL.
                          You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.

                            My, you are full of yourself, aren't you? I follow GM about...not you.

                            It matters to me, because that's when you started your crap with me again....follow your own link, and you'll see for yourself. Your playing innocent act is so childish.


                            If having your own words put where they're easy to find upsets you this much you should probably put more thought into them.

                            My words don't upset me. I just reserve the right to respond to your take on my words.

In the meantime, here's the last one.

                              Just think of our responses as a grown person blowing their nose at your dinner table.

                              But make sure you quote yourself, since you're the one who made that analogy.

                                I've been actioned upon in the past. Don't act like it's never happened.
