as i confessed before

i like admin because i like watching train wrecks. it's a morbid fascination.

i'm not proud of it but i'm also not ashamed. it seems to be a natural human tendency toward conflict and schadenfreude.

i also like to suck my thumb and eat milk and cookies and i really wish i had a mommy.

(ok, i don't really suck my thumb. but the rest is true.)

>i'm not proud of it but i'm also not ashamed. it seems to be a natural human tendency toward conflict and schadenfreude.

Yes and then there is a natural human tendency toward initiating conflict. Perfectly natural aswell, just as when one tries to stop that conflict.

>i like watching train wrecks

Well, as a matter of fact after the recent tube (train) bombings in London, which we are constantly reminded of here in the UK (and thoughtout the world I imagine) with the police at most train stations and also armed police on trains throughout the day time, comforting scared passengers....not forgetting the deaths and victims of passengers from such 'train wrecks' Quite frankly, I do not like or ever want to see another train wreck ever again in my life.

I don't appreciate statements like that, nor do I really see them fittingly civil at a time like this, and of course I could forward this to Dr Bob for a Determination to see whether or not he thinks it is fit for the "civil rules"

>it's a morbid fascination.

I do not have the same morbid fasination like yourself and so won't bother.

Take care

Nick

i don't actually like watching train wrecks -- i've never seen one. it's an expression. and i was just reiterating a fascination for admin that we had a discussion about in social not to long ago, in a tongue-in-cheek (but not sarcastic) manner.

i've asked nick england not to post to me anymore because i'm feeling harassed. i hope he'll honor my request. i had assumed that his apology was sincere and that there were no hard feelings, but it doesn't seem like we can get along with each other, so i feel it's best to disengage. [sigh]

it does feel a bit like kindergarten sometimes. right down to the "timeouts." *wry smile*

I have heard the admin board compared to car wrecks.. train wrecks.. but never have I seen that anyone respond that way to a common expression.

It's kind of you know like saying you could "kick someone" figure of speech...

Hey Crushed..

I think you're the bomb!

 

Please Be Civil Nickengland

Asking for a civility check is not necessarily a desire to incite conflict, and please don't insinuate that about others.
Thanks.

I dont think you quite take the whole train wreck thing seriously gabbi.

Any follow ups to this, you can read my message at the bottom of the page.

I'm not posting on this 'admin' board anymore, so please dont reply to this message to tempt me further.

Great tag-team by the way, you make a fine pair!

Thanks

you are not by any means referring to the bombings in London in any manner are you? i mean you of all people would have no reason to HIDE behind a remark such as "i think youre the bomb" when how ironically, Nickengland and the babbler that you are referring to had a disagreement would you? of course not-that would be against admin. rules now wouldn't it. I HOPE THAT NO PERSON ON THIS SITE WOULD EVER BE DISTASTEFUL ENOUGH TO TRY AND HURT ANYONE WITH A REMARK ABOUT TERRORISM-whether open about it or in a cowardly remark!....and i hope that Dr.Bob looks at your timing w/ that remark and see's it for what it is...a way to try and go between the lines and say something that horrible. Dr.Bob-block me if u must but pls. take a look at the above.

I use that expression all the time, it's a standard sign off to Crushed, but I apologize I wasn't thinking, and it was bad timing.
I would not make fun of tragedy, and though I can see how it looked to you, perhaps you just could have asked?

I do not blame you one bit for being upset. I lived through 9/11 here in the states but please do not allow certain babblers to hurt you. Look at the source of the remark. I agree-do not even respond to this kind of "support" any longer as neither will i. There are people here that we can do good for so let's use that. Take care and my prayers are with you.

I think her comment "consider the source" could lead gabbi to feel put down. It seems to imply something negative about gabbi, don't you agree?

I'd ask wildcard myself but she's asked me not to post to her, presumably because she doesn't like my questions? (I tried to work it out instead of "running to the teacher," by asking what she meant, but...oh well. It didn't work.)


> exactly what it states.

 

Well then...

Though I can't agree with Wildcards assessment of my intention, or my character, I'll apologize again for how that came across.
I'd intended to apologize after Crushed pointed out to me in A Babblemail how it looked, but Wildcard had already posted about it.

It's a common expression, I use it frequently, and well it's not my first experience with mind bogglingly stupid things coming out of my mouth..or across my monitor.

i definitely didn't think you did it intentionally, gabbi. i thought you were just trying to make me feel better in case i was feeling attacked.

I'm glad if it didn't, gabbi! (did it?)

regardless, i think it's important to stay civil. some people have thick skins, but that's no reason to have lower standards for posts directed at those people. wouldn't you agree?

Noooooo.. actually I think it was one of those self defeating comments.

Yes. I do.

I agree with everything you say, always, all the time..

I'm kidding, of course I agree.

Sorry to interrupt, but I'd like to redirect follow-ups regarding getting married and stuff to Psycho-Babble Relationships. Here's a link:
