You don't need my permission to be free, Insanely Humble

re: your comments here.

And I think you know I wasn't intending to give you permission to provide other examples. "You are free to..." is just a polite expression meaning "Put up or shut up."

  • Judging by the way @Insanely humble is ordering people about on *his* threads, I think we ought to congratulate him on his promotion.
  • It's not his thread, it's our thread. The OP isn't in charge.

    Seriously, @Insanely humble - just calm the fuck down. We're not the enemy. You don't need to reply to every post. Respond if you have something of note to say that might move the conversation on. The constant stream of snark isn't what Purgatory is about.

    You're welcome here, but you're just a bit wearing at the moment.

    If anyone still cares, this thread was originally in reply to what I believe is the 13th post on IH's US vs. UK Catholics thread. (I think I messed up the linkage in my OP.)
  • Linky seems to be OK, @Stetson!

    (BTW, does a Hell call still require a PM to the person being called? The thread title is indeed obviously aimed at a particular person, but I wonder if that person has noticed it).
  • Let's cut the newbie some slack. Coach it, don't grump it.
  • I suspect the newbie knows very well what they're doing, and I am NOT (for the record) accusing them of trolling...

    I think @Bishops Finger is right. The Insanely Humble one is not living up to the second part of their name.

    They seem to be testing the water here. So maybe @NOprophet_NØprofit also has a point.

    I was miffed when s/he called my perfectly reasonable comment ‘cute’, then said that’s fine because my avatar is a teddy bear, completely ignoring my point.

    That’s like ignoring a person’s ideas just because they are good looking. Annoying.

    I didn’t reply, it’s a fruitless exercise with point scorers. They just go on to find another point to score. That is not discussion.

    Well, on my cell, the link takes you to the bottom of the thread, not to the post I was replying to.

    I'll send a notice to Insanely Humble about this Hell thread.

    O yes - I see what you mean. It took me to the bottom of the thread, too, but I didn't think that mattered too much.

    Noted re message to the Insanely Humble One - it will be interesting to read their reply (if any)!

    Well, my OP on this thread was specifically about the phrase "You are free to...", so I thought it would be helpful for people to see the original context.

    And I actually wasn't particularly angry when I started this thread, it's just that I wanted to use the phrase "Put up or shut up", and I didn't think that would be kosher in Purgatory.

    Which has been pointed out to Insanely Humble.
  • Indeed it has, and it makes me think that the Humble One knows exactly what they're about.

  • You guys crack me up. You think I want to stay here with a bunch of childish ********* ?
    No that's not fair. I know. There are some decent people but I doubt they responded to this thread.
    Well...this is Hell isn't it ?
  • Especially the humourless twat who started this thread.
  • You know, I hate to lose someone who starts a lot of discussions, and who has energy and interest on topics a lot of us have gone around and around on for years. But you're really pushing it. You are in fact forcing me to wonder if you are either a troll or a sockpuppet, given some of your complaints and targets.

    But let's suppose that's true. You can still pull out of your nosedive before you self-destruct. It's not hard. Stop taking shoves at people in Purgatory. Stop being gratuitously nasty to people who haven't done you any harm. Or take them to Hell, if you must. At least you'd be in the correct location, and be less likely to attract hostly and adminly attention.

    Dial it down from eleven and see if you can last longer. Because the way you're heading now, I give you a week, tops.

    You really need to focus on being less long winded and less pompous. Is that a pre requ. For being C of E. clergy?

  • The world is much bigger than this forum. But seems that some treat this place as the whole universe. I pity them .
    Reminds me of those Twitter forum junkies. Same thing, just different drug of choice.

    Thanks, Golden Key, don't mind if I do!
  • As I said above. You're welcome here. I don't understand why you'd want to come to a new site, ignore the rules, deliberately antagonise the regulars, and just generally insult people. Some of the threads you've started have been genuinely interesting, but yes, you need to calm down a bit. Not everything is a direct challenge - currently you're at us like a budgie at a mirror.
  • You guys crack me up. You think I want to stay here with a bunch of childish ********* ?
    No that's not fair. I know. There are some decent people but I doubt they responded to this thread.
    Well...this is Hell isn't it ?

    Comments on the rules of hell and a good way to proceed.

    Yes you can name call here, but it's really dumb to do so when you are the person the thread's about. The better path is to read through why several people object with how you've posted and to think about how you do it, and change it. Your posts suggest several possibilities to me:
    - that you think this forum is a game or a place to just have fun without taking it seriously
    - that you enjoy upsetting or irritating others in the way a child will poke a brother or sister to get a reaction from them, and continue until a parent responds.
    - that you may have limited experience with adult conversation online: this isn't anything like an app-based convo medium, nor a place to score points, liked or hates.

    Can you dummy up please and take Purgatory discussions seriously? If it were summer and we were on a dock, I would throw you into the lake. And when you climbed back on the dock and repeated previous behaviour, I do it again. Until you stopped.
  • And get this. You are so humble as to condescend and forgive , and lucky me can get love and acceptance from such a warm and compassionate community and I would be so appreciative to belong to such a high status group.
