I give this a "like" or would if I could.

While I'm still :lol: ... Remember when Cook'dandBomb'd started a BCB thread a few years ago? Another tempest in a teapot. Live and let live and/or ignore and let ignore ... :D

Double-posting, in the interest of fully-disclosure:

Hey, I'm just gonna keep doing what I'm doing, of course.

But...Jimbo? If anyone's suggesting he's being bullied in any way, I'd question their reading comprehension. If you were trying to upset Jimbo, the quickest way to do it would be to leave him alone.

Other than that, I hope the old friends that came back around stick around for a while. It's nice to see them.

Ooo touchy! ;)

Actually the analogy doesn’t really stretch beyond your illustrious leader. I’m not complaining mind, I was always telling him that he’d be happier somewhere more to his tastes and he went off and built it - so fair dos.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

These two posts, posted hours apart, don't really seem to go together to me, so maybe we have a different definition of slander.

If you want to defend yourself here, I'm all ears, and I'm not going anywhere. But keep in mind that making fun of one's posting style, or music taste, is perfectly fair game as far as I'm concerned.

I will also repeat what I've said in both places, ad infinitum - going on a message board does not entitle anyone to what I presume you're calling fair play. I will say the same to you as I say to anyone - if it's not serving you, go outside for air. (Which I think is the same as "when the fun stops, stop," but I'm open to debate about that if anyone feels differently.)

Nothing to do with style or taste, but if you really want to know, I suggest you search for the two or three rebuttals that I posted over there before I was blocked. I really don't want to reopen old wounds.

As a famous philosopher once said, you may be wrong but you may be right, Min. I'm not blaming anyone or saying anyone was right - I just like talking music and crap with people i enjoy "being around", and for me that includes both places. Sadly, darkness fish continues to do the same, but i'm resigned to that now. Thats the internet and thats life. xo

Being that I'm not the one who brought it up, or decried your lack of ability to defend yourself I'm gonna pass, thanks.

But it sounds like you're saying it was once, early on, so basically there's been no repeated "character assassination." Which is why I said there was a seeming contradiction in the juxtaposition of the two posts.

Just offering you the opportunity to contradict that if you wish to. Which remains open.

And FWIW, I did go back a year in the conversation, and it's pretty varied, with a variety of (uncensored!) opinions, and I can assure you that you are barely brought up, and certainly not slandered in any way that I can interpret as such.

I will add also that Fange is another that I'm greatly relieved continues to post in both places. It's one of the things that keeps me doing the same.

Okay, I realize that I had no way of really knowing what went on after my blocking, so I will have to take back what I wrote about "repeated" character assassination if it could be read that way. I didn't write "repeated" in my post here, but never mind. It is enough that I suggested there could have been more of that. What went down right before my being blocked was nasty enough that I am relieved it stopped right there.
