July 13, 2010 Without Prejudice or Malice

I apologize to you Poopiekat, but not without explanation and to qualify my reason for the apology and to quantify my retaliatory response. Poopiekat blocked me,the very person who said he would block no one for any reason, and after you wanted the ability to know who blocked whom, why, because it would be to your advantage? So Poopiekat, accept my apology or not, I crossed the line that Lumberjocks drew in the sand, and abused the rules of posting, (not that you havn’t) much to your chagrin. Much against my character. You seem to have the ability to raise the ire in anyone.
Poopiekat (silly name), I like your writing and ideas, (except your first lathe post was a streatch) I don’t like being blocked when you can’t take my retaliatory remarks after you have insulted me to the n’th degree.You sure can dish it out, but you can’t take it. I don’t turn the other cheek easily. I should say here I have never PM’d you either. I probably would have been much more relentless. Further we all know you are a troll, I investigated trolls and found out I don’t like trolls. Again, furthermore, they don’t have the common courtesy to use their own name, and feel comfortable hiding behind a “nom de plume”, making it easy to say what they feel like saying, be it true or fiction, without fear of reprisal. Our local newspaper has the right attitude and does not permit submissions without a REAL name.I have no respect for trolls their credability is grossly compromised, and their points of view are clouded with exaggeration and innuendo.
When I entered into my tirade of retaliation, I thought you were enjoying the response, and were attracting what you posted the the subject for. I pictured you laughing at my remarks and trying to do one better with your response to me, I guess not. My investigation led me to believe as a troll this is what you like to do. I have read some of your postings in newspapers and deem them to be none of your business unless you use your real name. Heaven forbid your name is actually Poopiekat. I also notice a surge in postings by you to try to temper nice postings with postings that have offended many. I guess I’m the only one stupid enough to express my displeasure by catering and falling into your trap of wanton remarks, that are meaningless to this site. I have learned a huge lesson.
Now Poopiekat this is not a request to be taken off your block list, in fact I would be annoyed if you did, I prefer to remain on the list to avoid further confrontations. I will never block you.I just wish you would use your writing prowess to make a difference, both to Lumberjocks, and this great Country of Canada. Don’t provoke malice, there is enough now. We all know you have the ability to make a difference but you chose to take the high road. Your banter with Shaynelle last August was indicative of your work. You must be proud.
I know this posting will only last until someone complains about it. should it mean that I can no longer be a Lumberjock, then so be it. I have enjoyed the site immensely, and will bid goodbye with a heavy heart.

Yours Truly,
Jack Keefe

A: I don’t YET know what all this relates to. But! It’s actually “More Of The Same.”

B: I guess I’m still confused about the “Block Button but I don’t think “POOPIE” blocking “JACK” will prevent “POOPIE” from reading it, which he obviuosly did and replied as above, for what it’s worth.

C: RE: “made that private”. I DO know that because “POOPIE” blocked “JACK”.......”JACK” , CANNOT send “POOPIE” a “Private Mesage”, nor can he Comment on any of “POOPIES” Posts.

D: Write it then Burn it? Why? He had something to say and he said it the only way he could. If he felt the need to say it, that’s HIS Business and HIS Privilege. I’m not about to tell him what he should or should not say or do.

Personally I agree with some of the comments that Jack has made above. I’ve also been on the receiving end of this GARBAGE. As he also said, If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out. THAT is what this Post is all about.

As I’ve said before on similar Posts ….”The Gene Pool Is In Dire Need Of More Chlorine.”

JACK: Even if “Someone” does complain about it, (another tactic) I see no reason it should be removed nor do I see any reason you should have to leave this Site. We have had many a pleasant conversation and I look forward to that continuing.

The Block feature also can be used as a shield for intellectual cowards!
If someone wishes to post a rant, which I have no objection to them doing so, particulary one that is likely to ignite passionate responses then to ‘Block’ those who would disagree from commenting is quite pathetic.

Indeed there have been historic political flame wars on this site during the health care debate, and more recently regarding the Intellectual Property of designs and copying. It can get out of hand and Martin steps in and shuts it down which is wise. People starting such threads though should not then create an ‘echo chamber’ such that only those who agree with their ideology are able to post a reply. To me that just smacks of censorship.

Well I do believe if someone blocks someone else, they should not be allowed to post anything to any thread started by the person blocked or send them PMs. After being blocked and then recieving some really offensive PMs by them it sure does seem to be the tool of cowards. If you feel the need to use it maybe you should look in the mirror and ask yourself if you have the intestinal fortitude to survive in the real world. I just recently joined and seeing they way it has already been abused towards me, I hardly feel like posting here anymore. Thank you Jack, now I feel better getting that off my chest.

Dan & Dave: BRAVO!! & Well said! Basically what Jack said and what you “Tuned Into” is, that this is not “Using” the Block Button” it’s “Abusing” the Block button to acheive “Your Own Personal”, Less than Admirable agenda.

“The Tool Of Cowards” IF it’s Abused as you both point, out is pretty well what it boils down to.

DAVE: Very good “Signature Line”. Think I’ll change mine to something a little more appropriate.

DanCo: You’ve already been Blocked after 26 Days? Perhaps it’s as you say in your Profile that you have a tendency to be Sarcastic.

I Personally don’t care for Sarcasm even if it’s disguised as “Humor” which happens around here once and a while.

HOWEVER! If you were Sarcastic to me on any of my Posts or other Posts that I had commented on. I’d FOR SURE come right back at you on that Post. Why not? It’s as you said “the intestinal fortitude to survive in the Real World.” and there is NOTHING wrong with a good healthy RESPECTABLE Reply or Debate.

Now I’m wondering why I have only been blocked by 2 people and one of them Removed the Block after a short while. I was surprised that he did but my “Hat Is Off To Him” for doing so. What happened, happened. It’s in the Past. I don’t Live there.

The other one blocked me because I told him that if he was going to ridicule my comments in a Post at least identify me by my name. I got Blocked for that comment, which is of NO consequence to me because I never look at His Posts or Projects anyway and I’m not about to send him a Love Letter via PM. ;-}

RON: The only EGO involved here is the sadly lacking one of the “Blocker”.

Howie: Did I say something wrong?

UH OH! Just noticed I have 2 PM’s ….. HUUMMM …Think I had better “Block Someone” just in case, if I’m not already to late …LOL…Sometimes you have to be able to read the “Signs” BEFORE the “Activity” takes place.

Well. That’s interesting! I had a look at “Poopiekats” Home Page and there was no “Add/Remove Buddy” or “Send A Message”. Only one Buddy. I’ve seen it before and assumed it was something you could request “Administration” to do if you just didn’t want to have those Items Listed.

So I went to his ONE Blog and on the bottom it said….....

“You cannot participate in this discussion because you are on the poopiekat’s blocklist.”

Thanks “Poopsie”. I returned the Favour so now we won’t have to PERSONALLY put up with each other. EXCEPT when YOU or I make a comment on someonelses Posting. Then we can “Fire Away”…

HUMMMM? I wonder how many other LJ’s He’s Blocked.

Okay I have to go now…I think….and…
