"05 here,.... I've never been much of a contributer untill lately, however I have been actively reading the whole time.

It seems ATs is subject to trends which come and go with popular culture.

However the past always seems better in retrospect, .... Time changes all, and depending on how it changes for us we change our perspective as well, .... we may become more wise and loving, ... or more bitter and regretful.

One thing is for sure, adaptation is the key to survival in any sense.

No sarcasm there schro. It was sincere.

You made a valid point and after I thought about it, decided you were right, and now i am wiser for it. So I really should have said "point taken, thanks!"

See how that works?!

Tip of the cap to you as well lordbucket. Really appreciating the style and tone of your replies.

I like to be blunt, sarcastic and i like to hold my ground.
If that means upsetting a few people and getting in a few arguments, then so be it.
I try and treat everyone well and with respect and i try not to (appear) be rude to people.

But this is a discussion board and not everyone is going to agree... you get extremism and you get people insulting one another, that's just the way it goes.
I say it's better to have a thick skin and give as good as you get than to moan and whine and want to be all lovely and fluffy, because that's not realistic.


I agree with Whaaa when he said

I sure miss some of the old banned members. They were clever, intelligent, funny, take no prisoners kind of folks. That was their downfall of course.



And it's true.


You may not agree and others may not agree but that's what makes this site, other sites and people in general so great, we're all different.
We like different things and we're free to defend ourselves and be blunt and sarcastic and take no prisoners if we like...

And you guys can all hold hands and sing kumbaya if you want, doesn't bother me.

Whoever said anything about holding hands and kumbaya. Again, imbelishing to make your point. Heated discussion has always been a big part of what goes on here. Its the quickness to belittle and berate others that i'm mostly refering to.

My reply was to LordBucket.... I'm not sure what you're asking or what your point is.... i know what you're implying and you're wrong.


Ask a simple question or make a point and I will respond, otherwise how about letting LordBucket reply themselves?

Please, with a cherry on top

I wasnt implying anything. I have been very specific about what i have meant. But to further clarify, i responded to your reply to lordbucket because once again, you were putting forth the notion that i said ATS was, in the past, all chummy and we all used to hold hands and swap care bear vids and thats the way i wanted it to be. Its seems you have been so offended that I implied that your a noob and noobs are worthless, that you have lost your ability to reason and politely discuss your differing opinion, which, after i have browsed some of your other posts and replies in other threads, i believe you have the ability to do.

Heh, I should actually be thanking you ... this thread has had a rather significant affect on me. All this crap builds up by being here all the time and one ends upstarting every conversation defensively and from a confrontational stance. It creeps up on you and I wasn't even aware I was doing it ... or even why. So I'm trying to stop doing that now.

See this is what I'm saying.... it's not aimed at you.
That's why my reply says LordBucket and not Zoso28...

I was responding to his points in the post here
www.belowtopsecret.com...

I don't mention you at all.

And where did I say I was offended?
I think you're confusing me with others on this thread who have attacked you, because i have not.

I don't think of myself, or anyone for that matter, as a noob.... it's a pretty stupid thing... someone may be new to the site but have lots of knowledge on different topics and have researched these kind of things for years, so judging them solely on the date they registered on this site is ridiculous.

As for your comments about my "ability to reason and politely discuss my differing opinion" what are you talking about?

What's your point or your problem?

I would imagine as my posts only go back 250 or so... that you would have missed some of the jucier ones, I've certainly toned myself down over the last year... so if you think those posts are bad, you ain't seen nothin' mate.

Don't know what your issue with me is.... but as you're a member who has been here for 4 and a bit years, I would expect you not to bitch so much... but hey, I guess time doesn't have the same effect on everyone right?


If you have something to say or have a problem with some of my posts, then say it and I'll happily discuss it here or anywhere you like, if not... stop moaning.

Zoso extends his arms out and slightly forward, in blupblup's direction

No problem with you, just suppose I am not getting my point across to you in the way i want to. Of course there is always the possibility that i am just wrong, which i always reserve the right to be. And i was actually complimenting you on your replies to other posts, but my tone was rather condescending, so for that i apologize.

Fair enough mate.

*shakes hands*

You're not wrong at all... It's your opinion and it's a subjective thing.. not wrong at all.

Fair enough, I apologise too if i have offended you, that was not my intention.


Peace

Looks like makin' up with blupblup just killed the tread.

Anyway it was fun while it lasted. And i think some progress was made, at the least some people thought about it.
