To be honest I was thinking the same thing, was busy on GA last night.

it's pitiful to read the nastiness in their heads and the hatefulness in their hearts...........but a response, not matter how measured or restrained (because a nasty response in kind only feeds their blood-lust) only supplies them with the gratification that they are seeking.......

and as far as their pornographic pictures or words, that is just UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR and shame on them for sinking to that level.........

so perhaps, as difficult as it may seem, the "taunting, slating" posts need to be ignored and left to drop off the page without replies (i do understand the desire to fight back and defend our positions, but that is just giving them want they want----our attention).......

and going over to another site (or the response name-calling here)for a little "tit for tat" drops a person down into the same abyss that we are trying so hard to rise above........

thanks for listening..........

I totally agree, Beth. 'Don't feed the troll' is a phrase I've seen before and is appropriate here. She/he wants to start something and if she can't, she'll get frustrated and go away. Let's not give her the satisfaction.
The disgusting language and photos should be taken off, as children read the board. Otherwise, let's have new topics and let the foul ones slowly drop down and out of sight.
Of course everyone has the right to defend themselves when ac speaks lies in the press, but I would love to see less AC titles on this board.

Happy Canada Day!

I'm not in favor of banning, however whoever this person is they stepped over the line last night when they chose to name and show the address of a minor child of one of our users last night...Not only is it malicious, it is potentially dangerous to the child... We all know what kind of sick people trawl the internet.

What sickens me the most is that they are saying we are using double standards here.

Double standards my eye - there is a HUGE difference in what has been deleted from over there and what was deleted here and anyone who fails to see that is as sick as the person who is posing as Mr X.

I am totally in favour of freedom of speech HOWEVER last night made me totally sick I couldn't get off here quick enough.

Sick and disgusting

Know what you mean Carolanne.

Big difference between banning anyone and everyone and deleting their posts just because they don't fall into line, and then someone that has actually posted disgusting images and said highly innapropriate things.

I do not support banning people and deleting stuff under normal circumstances, this this one was an exception. They shouldn't be allowed to say that stuff anywhere on the web.

How someone can imply that we are hypocritical by wanting this person gone is beyond me.

good point beth....once again.....you can't complain about someones behavior when yours is just the same.....running over to the other forum and replying or replying here do nothing but perpetuate the nonsense .....or course thats assuming everyone really wants all this to stop
