That is nice to know. But I am no longer sure that sharing my interesting things is always the right thing to do. :)


Sure it is. That is the only way you get to exist. The key is to do it with respect and civility, to actually share.

Good things come to those who wait. You will have your chance to drink from the fountain of knowledge, but now is not the time.

I do not know if this proverb is true. I think one needs to force the issue. Time is short. Life can end at any time.

That is nice to know. But I am no longer sure that sharing my interesting things is always the right thing to do, LucidFlight. Maybe I should first learn what others are saying about things first.



That's the most insightful thing I've read of yours. Perhaps learn that yours is neither the only, nor neccessarily the correct point of view.

I hope you do better here.

I always seem to know how to make the right peace in the different circumstances of daily conflicts in a manner that leaves everyone happy and contented that they have all won.


Your experiences at SC and TR being examples of this?

Pretty much everybody. No-one likes having to ban members, and the way you re-acted seemed to indicate you weren't at all happy about being banned.

Plus I wouldn't have thought reporting a member to the police was the action of someone happy about the situation, though Phands was actually kinda tickled that you did so.

Then we have work to do to rectify the situation. What would phands and SC like me to do?

:wave:

G'Day from Brisbane, Australia, and welcome into the lifeboat ! This is my greeting for all new members and contains some useful stuff for you.

If you haven't seen it already, you may want to take a look at our New Members' Welcome Pack which will give you some helpful resources such as how to modify your membership display settings, how to navigate around the forum, point you to some threads which address commonly asked questions from newbies, and gives you some handy links to other sites which will help you develop your skepticism. It also contains our forum rules, which we ask that you abide by at all times.

If you're new to this type of phpBB software on forums, you might like to take a look at our Handy Hints for Posting On The Forum, which will show you how to change your text, insert images & youtube clips, and do some other cool stuff.

And finally, as a house warming present for you, here's a few laughs for your entertainment.

:beer:

Absolutley nothing. You are banned and are staying that way. It just makes your claim that you leave things peacful and happy demonstrably untrue. You tend to leave a wake of angst and frustration in your wake, due to your insufferable ego and claims of absolute rightousness.

The first quote from you indicated you were perhaps learning that.

The last two make me think that was wishful thinkingon my part.

Just my personal opinion, but I don't see much value in continuing to discuss disputes that arose at other internet forums on this forum. Clean slate, and all that.

Yes, we should learn a lesson from our own history in that regard.

That is nothing short of a lie.
