I know I'm going to follow Destee's advice and use the IGNORE feature (for the first time ever). For me, it's either do this *this time*, or just call it a day and *for sure* stop paying for the dubious privilege of abruptly accessing some seriously hateful madness targeting Black women that's begun to pile up in a whole lot of different threads. I've actually begun to hesitate before checking out new topics because of this targeted *hate a Black woman* nastiness from this one *determined* problem-member, so...


Anyhow, here goes (me, putting the ignore feature to use), because it is my first, heartfelt will to keep with supporting this site.


One Love, and PEACE
Peace Fieldpea,

Use it.. and love it. I use it as a filter.. I don't think of it as really ignoring anyone.. it's just moving their content out of my way.. ;) so I can see what I really came here to see. There are just some points of view that I don't need to see.. either because they are redundant or predictable.. or dishonest.. etc.. I have folks on ignore for all kinds of reasons.. writing style.. post frequency.. thread frequency.. general combativeness.. talking-out-the-side-of-their-kneck-dedness.. I even had one shirt-less dude on ignore because of his shirt-lessness.. So it's a really positive feature.. in that it can make things disappear.

and you know all of that gender-war nonsense resurfaces ever so often.. just like the ring in the toilet bowl.. but it always eventually gets scrubbed-out and washed down the toilet.. it's just a matter of time and patience. Many many many people have not realized that black men and black women are one single thing.. and so they rhetorically cut off their nose to spite their own faces..

it won't last long.. don't worry.

Sister ... this is a lot coming from you ... one who NEVER breaks the rules, a model Member of this community, helping to keep it alive for others ... hmmmm ... there's problee a fly in the buttermilk if you say there is.

I'm gonna keep looking, watching for the behavior you've describe above. I've not been around as much lately and it's certainly possible that some has gotten in without me getting rid of it ... but rest assured ... it won't live here forever.

I truly have no patience with the Gender War Fighting ... so much so ... that we have a rule about it.

So if you see something new, click on the REPORT link under the post and let me know about it.

But even if you don't see it, and report it ... i'm watching ... :guard:

Love You and Thanks! :grouphug:

:heart:

Or, yall could stop taking these none entities so serious as to let them get under your skin? Let's remember that all opinions have a right here. And some issues by their nature are going to be controversial. Some just cant handle the heat od the discussion forums. They never could. They should thusly, stay out. It's not like you will meet the person any time soon. Or that they will come to your house to impact your life in some real way. I have only placed a hand full of people on igg over the decades. And then, only temporarily. It's a lot easier to slice and dice their faulty logic. Or just not respond to stupidity. But some of you have skin made of fine china. Moreover, you have allowed your personal issues, phobias, psychosis, idiocincracies (sp ) to infect your logic. CHILL. It's not that important. And neither are your faux hurt feelings

Kemetstry, I tried to engage dude--everyone knows that I'm referring to CosmicMessenger, so...)--I tried to engage dude in regards to how he was applying hateful religious rhetoric towards Black women in any and all kinds of threads. I tried. Fella ran! Ran straight to a pat declaration of his belief in his FATHER!


Thing is, the OP had *nothing* to do with religion. Not a thing! He brought that perspective into the thread, so I figured why not engage him in regards to *his interpretation* of TRUTH (from an historical perspective).


If I was to understand him to not be a *troll*, then yeah, dude had/has a right to share his positions here, same as me and anybody else. Still does. I even ain't in his (or anyone else's way) when they feel the need to run for protection, too. When he did this (ran) from what I had to say, I recognized that and immediately disengaged from dialoguing with him.


Push/shove, if dialoguing with me left him feeling uncomfortable or more, somehow *at risk*, I had no right to do that kind of thing to him (or to anyone else), so...


But his obvious persistence (his approach) in engaging in dialogue with all other members that he attracts into dialogue--and him not being a troll? Well, I'd do my best to skirt past his auto-diatribes against Black women, and I thought I was doing OK with that (no more than annoyed with him and his posts). Been doing this kind of thing for years, here--occasionally having to shine something on. No biggie.


He tore his drawers with me, though, when he attacked Cherry--it was the 'way' he went about it--that attack. He escalated his rhetoric by specifically targeting a Black woman--a fellow member--and he targeted a fellow Christian member! Isn't that inexcusable? But anyhow...


My issue with him: Dude is all over the place (in terms of current topics). I realized that my own personal feelings of anathema for his mindless posted positions was starting to build up towards the level of his own personal anathema for Black women. Like I posted earlier, I got tired of his rhetoric.


Since he's laced himself (his auto-diatribes) all through the current topics, this didn't leave me with much that I could safely check into without *finding* CosmicMessenger already there, doing his thing!


Enough! But how to avoid dude? SMH, I really was thinking to not support the site! As if that was all I could do to register my own displeasure with my Destee experience*. Trust, I saw it as my own personal issue. I didn't once think to register a complaint against CosmicMessenger. He IS a member. Has as many rights to be a member as any of us have, so...and, I NEVER think to use that dang IGNORE feature!


Not until houserunner's post about it. Duh, right? LOL!


One Love, and PEACE

You are right brother, but those who tell the TRUTH and don't conform to the status quo will always have some enemies.

Confucius Personal Life
05. JUL, 2011 in CONFUCIUS

EXCERPT:
Confucius, a Chinese philosopher, was born in Lu–modern Shantung. He was a self educated man, married at the age of 19 and was a teacher early in his career. Later in his career he became minister of justice. Because his ideas of social reform were popular with the people, many praised and honored him; however, he developed many enemies and had to leave Lu. During his travels, many followed him and became known as his disciples. Years later he edited the ancient writings and after his death the Confucian Anaects were created and within them are his doings and sayings. His teachings basically focused on filial piety and respect for one another. His thoughts and teachings later inspired many followers. Cunfucianism became the religion of China but later he was thought of as an exploiter of the masses during the Cultural Revolution—(1955-76).

Confucius say, "When fools hear the truth, they get mad; when wise men hear the truth, they learn and become wiser."

Indeed, people react differently when they hear the truth.

LOL! "targeting" people???

Some of you sound like I MURDERED somebody!

I did nothing but state the TRUTH.

Being new here, I don't remember most of you nor do I remember all our conversations.

Sorry if i'd forgotten you or forgot what I stated that made you angry.

From now on, i'll mostly just post music.

Good night to you.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
