If you are coming here from another forum, you are very welcome here, but please leave the drama behind. I don't need it, I don't want it, and I'm not going to put up with it. This isn't junior high school and I'm not your guidance counselor. If you're having a problem with someone else here and you can't work it out yourself, you have the option of ignoring that person, either through the forum function or by simply not responding to their posts. There is no law that requires everyone to like everyone else, and as long as everyone treats everyone else with a degree of respect, that shouldn't be a problem. If you have a problem with me, let me know about it. I am in the forum often, and I'm approachable by private conversation, but starting a public forum thread to complain about me is not particularly helpful. I haven't lied to any of you about anything since I started this forum and if you don't believe this, then there is nothing that I can say or do that will change that, so I'm not going to worry about it. If you're angry and you don't trust me to do anything about whatever it is that you're angry about, then please leave quietly. There's no reason to slam the door behind you on the way out. Continuing the drama is just plain silly, and doors sometimes get stuck when you slam them too loudly. I'd rather you stay, but only if you can do so without the drama. I don't care what opinions you might have on political or religious issues as long as you don't insist on derailing someone else's thread. If someone has started a thread to promote Religion X and you are a firm believer in Religion Y, and you believe that those who are adherents to Religion X are going to hell, then start a thread to promote Religion Y, and you won't get any complaints from me. If you are really interested in discussing the reasons why the adherents of Religion X are going to hell, and why your own religion is superior, start a thread about that. I can't guarantee that anyone is going to join you in it, but you are welcome to do so as long as you can manage to tell them that they are going to hell in a respectful way. But if discussion of Religion X offends you, and you simply cannot tolerate any reference to it, then you're probably not a good candidate for the religion forums. We have plenty of other forums here. Since shortly after starting this forum, I haven't participated in any other senior forums, and the only one that I can remember having participated in has since closed, so when someone makes references to another forum, I am in the dark, but that's okay. I don't feel the need to compete with any other forum in the way that some of you seem to think that forums should compete. I don't feel the need to put another forum down in order to promote this one, and I can't imagine why someone couldn't participate in more than one senior forum. I don't participate in any other seniors forums because I feel that I have a responsibility to use my own efforts to promote this one, but there's no reason why you shouldn't. If you're unhappy with this forum, there's no need for drama. There are other forums, as you know. Most of the drama is fiction, anyhow. There's no need to get caught up in it.
