    I'm sure we can all agree that there's been a lot of hostility around here. I think *all of us* no matter how un-involved, are contributing to it. There are the people who come on here to voice their opinions about how much this board sucks with its *elitist* clique and inside jokes, when clearly.....if you hate it so much, why do you log on?

    There are the people who choose to stay anonymous and just log on to make a few derogatory comments here and there, and thats fine...but if you're going to come on here with malicious intent, I think you should be warned that people are not simply just going to sit around and take it. If you can't take it...then don't dish it. Don't hide behind an internet persona trying to fill an empty self-esteem.

    Then there are the third party people. The ones that just watch everything unfold and put in their two cents at what they feel is the appropriate time. In essense....these people are just bitching about other people bitching which obviously leads to more bitching. In the end what's left? A lot of resentment.

    So in conclusion....i'd just like to say that maybe we should *ALL* relax. I'm not trying to dictate anything here, but since i've been on tribe i've tried to treat other people fairly as I would want them to treat me. More or less, people are free to come on here and say whatever they want....that's the beauty of the internet. The internet has given everyone a voice, if you use that voice to make derogatory remarks to complete strangers, then you better expect you're gonna get the same thing back. If you feel that you need to stick up for someone, then you better believe that someone isn't going to agree with you're sticking up for that person. In any given situation there are only a limited number of ways to deal with it. Night cannot exist without day, good cannot exist without evil. I think we should all just sit back, look at the big picture....and try to relax.

    P.S. this message wasn't directed to anyone specifically

    P.P.S. I think some of us need to differentiate the board from reality....

    Its February/March seasonal grumpiness I think. Also there seems to be a lot of relationship breakups happening as well as mouse infestations.

    Too cute! :) I agree with Alex its just a case of the post winter bitchy blues, it seems like everyone is have issues, drama and is super cranky and emotional lately plus it was a full moon week it tends to bring out lunacy in people. I'm sure very soon we will all be back to our cheery, fun, and great selves (well most of us, I can't account for everyone) :)

    will, this board is as much a part of reality as anything else in the universe, although perhaps some people give it to much importance. ;)

    personally, despite what may be percieved as an unseasonably high level of drama on the board, i find that i have better and more meaningful 'real-life' friendships with some tribers than ever before (you know how you are). :D

    on the other hand, because i like to be a jackass sometimes, i will take this oppourtunity to apologize and send loving vibes to all.* :)

    *except for that shifty bastard posTMOd, god knows that nobody will forgive him for what he's done. :p

    an ever present ebb and flow, persistent as the tides exists here.

    sorry, that was my attempt at being poetic.;)

    will, i used to post such sentiments. but message boards are cyclical; they change, progress, revert back to the way they once were, change again...it's really a never ending process. whatever. i personally have had much more *fun* with the internet once i stopped taking it seriously.

    anything negative/argumentative that i may say on tribe is not a personal vandetta against anyone that i would take away into the "real" world. i would hope that contrarily the same is also true.

    commentary. dEbate. words. ambiguous user names. sentences. paragraphs. afdlkjewfjowijrewioejr

    and if you think those of us on this here message board have dem psyche-lowdge-ical problems, imagine the hundreds if not thousands of lurkers who for some strange reason feel compelled to check out the melodrama on a daily basis.

    now *they* must be fucked up.;)
