Ok Kids Time to vent,
I have posted things about my EX the whore yes. I am not arguing that. I am however arguing the fact of posting comments. I believe there are some unwritten rules on this subject. Sometimes people that know each other on a personal basis do fire comments that seem a bit over the top but it is understood that these people are boys and can get away with it. I am directing this at Heroin bob. A poster who I actually liked up until now. Yes it is my opinion that I can get pissed off. I know what she is and how she is, but that doesn’t mean that I have to open a forum up and see a comment like that, I mean it would be along the lines of me commenting on the fact of heroin being an asshole. Not gonna do it. If a cat is a cat, we know it is a cat and don’t need to be told it. Let it be, I fired forums up about the subject and we have moved on. At no point within that forum about a “tuesday night” did I make mention about katy, so what gave you the right to throw a comment out that you knew would piss me off. Thanks heroin for being an asshole. Grow the fuck up and think about some comments you make and just how inappropriate they are.

Don't forget about your position here.. Give DJ some head and get Bob's account removed if he pisses you off. Then again, that kind of axes the freedom-of-speech thing this inter"web" brings. Who knows. At least you done brung the anger to it's own thread, vs hijacking others.

Time for big brother to chime in...

Last night I finished the last line of code for Big Arfie 5.0. I've put thousands of hours into the code for this web site, mainly for the fact that I really enjoy reading what everyone has to say. We have a great bunch of users here, and thats what keeps me coming back for more.

That being said, I think it is important for us to, how should I say it, calm down a little. Between this and the Norm-LittleKitten arguing, I think its time to just chill...

Chill! You must chill!
I have hidden your Firebird keys!

I think it is really neat that we can debate, rather intelligently at times, issues like the war and our (marxist) government without getting into (very many) personal attacks.

In conclusion, lets keep the personal attacks to a minimum.

This, of course, excludes the following:
  • Making fun of Farley's spelling
  • Discussing Norm's lack of female companionship
  • Not listening to "the voice.."

I have tried, and if i have attacked or such i have not hit on personal stuff that is over but may still be lingering in someone. someone could come up to me 6 years from now say something about this subject(katy) and it would still strike a nerve, it always will.
tanner you are the best thanks for perspective.
my main reason for this topic posted is think about possible personal feelings of attacks. if i call norm a fag he knows i am kidding.
thats all.

I'm confused. Suddenly we're concerned about personal attacks? Seems like it just went like this (and I'm paraphrasing):


Farley: "Whore! Whore! Whore! Whore! Whore!"

HB: "So you're saying she's a whore?"

Farley: "YOU SHUT UP YOU DOUCHEBAG!!!"


Nobody has any business posting, especially on this web site, if they can't take a little sting. It's the Wild Wild Web, folks. Don't want none, don't start none. Otherwise, be willing to take what you're willing to dish out.

Ya kid you paraphrased the hell out of it, because if you have read what i written previously, that is implied, but there is no reason someone i do not know has to make a fucking joke out of it, when it is inappropriate.with int that topic at no time was she even mentioned but he took it upon himself to throw out a joke/comment.

Jesus, sorry if I pissed you off, but I'll take Kid Dexterity's lead and run with it here...

You bitch about her being a whore and a very funny joke is made about the topic, and suddenly it is inappropriate? Doesn't make sense to me. I guess we can all go back to calling Norm a fag, huh?

I'd say getting bent out of shape over a one-liner that someone who doesn't know you said online is inappropriate. Boy, I hope the 5.0 has an appropriateness filter, a 'don't hurt anyone's feelings' filter and a 'are you sure you wanna write about your girlfriend again' filter, because that would make it so much easier and safer.

just because people write about things, they vent, and yes a one liner set me off. My FRIENDS can say shit like that to me.it has nothing to do with, you wrote about it, yes i wrote about her and how she is, but that doesnt mean it has to commented on in that manor. the forum that i had set up was about a good time that i had, it had absolutely nothing to do with my EX, so maybe also was why you had to fire that out. people bitch about things left and right on this site, but people know and have limits on seeing how much something sucks for a person and not bringing it back up. i havent said a thing about her or the situation recently, and i thought everyone, well everyone but you had figured out, maybe it wouldnt be a good thing to comment on any more, so it died, it stopped, but now i gotta deal with seeing a stupid comment from you.
thats my point..lets recap.
1. you are not friend enough to comment like that
2. sensitive subject one way or another-common sense should have kicked in.
3.you made three references in that one liner, did you really need to throw one at me about my EX?

and you are right i probably should have looked at it and laughed because it was the truth,
i don't want to drive a rift in between farlupulous and heroin.. wow that could develope into a habit...
anyway. just a subject that really sucks
sorryn if i flipped but we make fun of each other but i think there is a line when it gets kinda deeply personal as this subject is.

TRUCE BOB?

Alright, time to chime in on this one.

Initially, I felt like Farley was overreacting, because nobody put a gun to his head made him put his business out in an open forum where the whole world (or the 30 people who frequent this site at least) can see it.

Then I started to think about the fine line that we walk as members of this website. Most of the time we’re all about being tongue and cheek dropping the sarcasm, but then all of the sudden somebody gets upset and the line gets blurred. The bottom line is this is an open forum and any asshole can get a login here if they want one (I have one for chrissakes) so if you wear your heart on your sleeve you have to be ready for that. Those of us who have been around might know better, but sometimes people that are newer to the culture don’t know the dynamics here and we can’t blame them for following our lead with the snark.

I think the best approach to take is that everything here is meant in good fun unless otherwise specified.

Relax people. It's only the internet. I took a bunch of shit for being too personal in a few of my articles, Farley. Don't share if you don't welcome feedback. And part of feedback is making jokes at your expense. Happened to me, still happens... I mean, I am a fag, right?

Allow me to quote: "But most of all thankyou for confirming I was not crazy, you were just a lying slut."

You can't call someone a slut then get upset when someone else calls them 'easy'. It doesn't make sense.


Sorry I made a very funny joke. No need for a truce because I'm not the one with the problem with you, it's the other way around.

ya know, i have no real useful comment here other than, heroin quit saying you said something funny, beacuse it wasnt even funny to begin with, and especially not "very funny" like you quoted, look into the tuesday night forum and look at jayrock's reply to farley speaking of his humor on tuesday night....leave it to other people to think your "jokes" are funny, dont say something that had .01% comedic value, and then tell us its funny.

Great to see you got the point of saying truce bob, point was squash it let it go. and yes i did have that line in the letter i wrote great cut and paste.Just because i calle d her it doesnt mean you have to, someone i don't know. and yes it was I who had the problem with your "joke" as you say. If you say someone in a store do something that you consdiereda jackass move, would you call them a dick to their face? If it was a friend you would. Thats the point.

Farley is I must say, doing the best he has in a while, Mentally that is. It is nice when you do not have to worry about calling, what time you will be somewhere, what you said. Fuck that, I told someone the other night she should get a boob job to make her nose look smaller.
Still gonna come in to have you serve me drinks... just ran into money troubles, thats the other thing, i dont have to listen about how i spend my money... It's MY MONEY!
