In fairness you guys are not seekers so certain things spilled over bc of some obnoxious behavior on his behalf from there.
I have absolutely no idea what this sentence means. What does not being a seeker have to do with anything? Obnoxious behavior from where? And do you really not see your own behavior as obnoxious? Who the hell are you to tell anyone what they're allowed to write or not? That's what the mod team is for.
At any rate, it seems like a fairly frequent pattern of his to not have something nice to say or being passive aggressive when a new poster is asking questions or just sharing something w/us, kinda like this thread.
Seeker, member - it has nothing to do with how long a person's been posting. He speaks his mind and with the inflections that you add to the post you turn it into something it's not. Because I do know him personally, I can say that he doesn't have a passive aggressive bone in his body. Aggressive - yes. Passive - no. And this is not me defending him - this is me explaining something. He's a grumpy old man AND a retired career sailor. (And an Instructor and an Elder - which is less important in this specific paragraph) I have a family full of grumpy old men (well, I did - most of them have died by now). Most people don't know how to take them.
You really do add a lot of inflection to what you read. I wonder where they come from?
I doubt the first thing anyone wants to hear when they're new and/or excited about something they just made is, "oh the first thing that comes to my mind is shit" literally.... even if you did say it looked nice first. The other wasn't necessary. Seriously, what was the point?
That a wand made from a large honey dipper could be used for much more than just 'sweetening things up'. Because of the connotations of the phrase it could also be used to bring shit into a persons life or to affect their sex life.
I'm sorry, but when did you become the Trad Witch Forum Police? 90% of the conversations here are not necessary - they're conversation. When did it become your job to tell us what anyone can or should not post? or what is necessary? or what others do or don't want to hear? Seriously? Please don't ever speak for me - I'm perfectly capable of speaking for myself.
I understand he's your friend RR and I get you'll stick up for him- no big deal.
He's a big boy. He can stick up for himself. I wasn't sticking up for him - I was calling you out on breaking your word publicly - you know, the one you freely gave publicly. Don't try to change that into something else.
However, I'm pretty sure I meant that thread w/regards to not responding to him again- and I didn't, so yes I am. I'm new, yet already I know people get sick of his bs and have been thanked privately on several occasions already for being vocal about it. So that's an issue that goes both ways and you're not seeing everything or share the same perspective regarding his attitude and bs.
Personally, I really don't care what goes on in the background. I can also say that I was thanked privately for my post here addressing you. I wasn't going to go there but since you brought it up... his is not the only attitude that people are getting sick of.
What I specifically said was "I am getting really sick of this stupid bullshit already. So much for being a woman of you're word - you just don't stop - do you?" I wrote 2 sentences directly to you and you responded with excuses, blamed others for your own actions and the reason it's ok to break a publicly given word is because 'there are others on the bandwagon'. Really?
Is your personal vendetta against MonSno really more important than keeping your Word that you gave publicly? If you didn't make such a point of 'being a woman of your word' and 'keeping your word' I wouldn't have said anything. I didn't make you write that post. You did that of your own free will. You also broke your word of your own free will. That's the only thing I was addressing.
You seem like a very nice person w/some decent insight, but if I bother you that much can't you stick me on an ignore list or something? This forum seems to run on very decent software and I think that's an option, although I could be wrong bc I haven't explored everything yet (and I've never used an ignore list bc if someone from the internet I don't know pisses me off to the point I can't stand to read it anymore is the day I log off permanently.To each his own though).
Quite honestly, I don't care enough about you to be bothered by you. I just have a very low tolerance for stupid bullshit at the moment. I don't know where all of this last paragraph is coming from. That's your deal - not mine.
What all of this back and forth comes down to is simple. I will never take you at your Word. No one asked you to give it. You offered it freely. Then you broke it with 'all of the above' as a good enough reasons.
I'm not pissed off. I'm not attacking. I addressed one point to which you wrote a book about everything else and completely dismissed.
To the thread OP, I'm sorry if I offended you or my posts bothered you in any way. That was not my intent.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.....
... and back on topic regarding the honey dipper wand:
I think it is very cool that from what appears on the surface as a beautifully, sweet wand can be used for other things - whether it be to bring or remove shit from a persons life to affecting a persons sex life - the various regional and other connotations for the phrase really open up what it can be used for.
