Disillusioned And Betrayed.

You guys will tell me I’m throwing a pity party for myself. Unfortunately, you’re correct. But this incident was disappointing and depressing.

I replied to this topic: https://www.discussionist.com/1014470239

My reply was somewhat harsh, even though it was truthful. I thought there was an outside chance my post would get hidden. But what actually happened was worse than getting a hide.

Now, I have been insulted plenty here at Discussionist. Kitty says something offensive to me almost every day. (I don’t always get to read them, though, since she always deletes her posts.) Before winter vacation of 2016, we had a poster here with the handle, “Kcci.” He had a real problem with me and let me know it. And, of course, liberals routinely call me racist or fascist. Doesn’t bother me. I figure if I’m annoying liberals, I’m doing something right.

But when a Discussionist member whom I respect and admire attacks me for no reason I can see … Well, maybe I’m a sensitive little snowflake, but it hurts.

In the past, I have stated more than once that OldEnuff is one of three posters I would like to meet in real life. (Along with Graham and his Daughter.) Quite often, I respond to Old Enuff’s posts with one word: “Agreed.” You can read the thread in the link above and see he accuses me of “Trying to put words in my mouth.” Then he tells me to “put it where it will never get a sunburn.”

I have no clue what part of my post he took offense to. I responded to the OP, not to him. I did not mention him or anything he said.

All I can say is that in addition to disappointment, I feel a great sense of betrayal. It’s good to find out at last who’s on your side and who isn’t.

1. loololololool

you both sound like snowflakes in that thread.

I think olde is taking an overliteral view of the use of "code" as political correctness, examining what he imagines was your original intent in suspecting that some overly sensitive editor had scratched out "n****r" from the young reporters story and pointed at the style book to find "use 'teen' instead of the more accurate but emotionally charged 'n word'"

don't worry about it.

2. It's just the internet, Bubs; it's not real life.

A lot of people, including myself, read through too fast and fail to grasp what's actually been said.

A lot of people, not including myself, take umbrage at a comment they misinterpret as a slam or an insult.

It's just the internet; while real life of course has to be taken seriously, what people write on the internet isn't worth worrying about.

3. Why worry about it?

I don't have any feeling when it comes to other human beings and nothing anyone can say bothers me.

4. Sticks and stones, etc.

Don't let it bother you, Bubba.
We can't control what others do, only what WE do.

Besides, I kind of LIKE your posts!
Keep it up!

6. No, I Do Not Know That.

At first, I thought that must be the case. But if it were, he would have acknowledged that fact when he saw my reply to his post. The fact that he continues to ignore me indicates he deliberately insulted me for no reason.

Well, as other replies in this thread have pointed out, best thing for me is to shrug it off and carry on.

8. I'm sorry you were subjected to that.

I've always tried to follow the threads carefully to be certain I'm replying to the correct poster.

Off topic, but I'd like to apologize again for my intemperate comments regarding Seattle.
