I spoke about this yesterday in that I don’t think that it’s a ganging up so much as a gathering of individual replies, sometimes it escalates to a certain degree but I think that may be just in the nature of the medium, and not a form of bullying

Sorry, Fauve. I disagree : there are elements in these forums using peeve kinds of threads ( What are your peeves ? ; How do you feel ? ) which are usually harbouring a set of people who all of a sudden tend to turn against a forumite ( whomever ) with small jabs until it forms a pages long tirade how anyone feels about anybody ( notice i say feel : pure emotion ) which generates written anger. Some even master that build up  just to set up others to have a go at eachother for the sake of entertainment.

This formula needs to be broken if examples of pleasantness like Scylla described to me are meant to resurface and not simply vanish.

Let me give you an example.

  1. I am NOT a friend of Luna.
  2. I do not have her on my inworld friendslist nor ever met her inworld.
  3. I only share a certain stance with her and expressed it in this forum.

I am ACCUSED of being the White Knight enabler.

See how it goes ?

I’ve seen a couple of people do something like this, and I’ve seen one person consistently white knight in a strange way and I just blocked her after saying my piece, not getting through and just saying oh well. The worst name-calling in the whole exchange was me calling her auntie and her calling me pumpkin and that was that. My impression is that quite a few people have done the same thing with her. There’s always been one person who will never stop yelling into the void in every forum that I’ve ever been on so maybe I’m just used to it? But I guess I haven’t seen anything quite as bad as what you’re describing.

@TDD123 - if I was going to pick a battle to fight on the forum, I don’t think it would be surrounding this one person’s behavior, frankly. If I flip the situation and imagine myself under the tender ministrations of said white knighting from said person, my first response would be nuuuu holy shizuuu please don’t defend me - go away go away go away. Because what they do isn’t really defending the person, it’s using the situation as a cover to poke out and punish others. There’s lots of evidence of that in past threads, the name-calling other people, taking very personal pokes at them etc. I don’t even have to say anything more negative than “go look at the body of work in her posts overtime”. 
So if you align yourself with that, I guess people will think that you approve of that behavior and be very wary of it. Can you blame them after they’ve watched what they’ve watched coming from this person? People here a very long memories. And they watch patterns of behavior over time. Now it’s extending into decades as second life ages. Are all those people wrong and mistaken? I don’t think so

I wish they would watch their own behaviour more instead of Luna' s , whom I' ve frequently confronted and certainly don' t agree with on MANY points, while I am observing theirs.

You now speak of a group. Against Luna.

A group. Against Bagnu.

A group. Against me.

 

There' s always this group. It' s a toxic group. It' s not just Luna.

You DO realize, she starts a lot of the jabbing?  Or it's fine if she does it and whoever she's chosen for the day has to keep quiet?   Yeah, makes perfect sense.

Bagnu is actually sitting here beside me inworld if you MUST know

Well, that explains a lot.  And now that I've seen yet another moon alt,  I'll be vacating this dumpster fire and add yet another hypocrite to the list.

Are you claiming Luna always took residence in the previous peeves threads and started off conversations from being peeved about something turning it into being peeved about someone turning into being peeved about a certain forumite ?

ETA : I certainly seen YOU do it.

You know who and it' s not Luna.

Maybe don't make a toxic callout post when you're trying to make a point about toxic callouts. 

People having boundaries around toxic behaviour isn't abuse. People highlighting a pattern of bad behaviour isn't abuse. I'm not saying there isn't abuse on the forums but damn, this is either the longest term troll or some serious cognitive dissonance.

I'm not sure what this is supposed to accomplish?

An actual maintainable peeves thread.

Because people need to vent. Why else do these threads keep reappearing ?
