Thing is, even if Ace is the greatest guy in the world (which he is), if someone is honestly bothered by his approach then are we in a position to tell them not to feel that way? Especially when they're not doing so in the service of trolling or whatever. I'm not talking Brx here, just to be clear, but Vox.
At what point does good fun become unintentional harassment?
Maybe at the point where I said to Vox "Perhaps we have got off on the wrong foot - here is some music you might like"?
No, but we are in a position not to behave any differently just because they feel that way.
Ace, on the other hand, might consider dialing it back voluntarily.
Repeat: "Maybe at the point where I said to Vox "Perhaps we have got off on the wrong foot - here is some music you might like"?
Ace, you are conveniently omitting the point - many steps previously - where I had implored you to leave me alone. We had already by that stage passed well beyond any opportunity for "rebuilding bridges". (I'll also note that your reaction to my request was to label me as "weird and unpleasant".)
I have never used the term "abuse", I used the term "harassment" - the evidence of which is available to anyone who consults the history of my talk page. 14 comments left in less than 24 hours without any response is a fairly clear indication that I did not want to engage.
Given the fully degraded state of affairs we had reached, I regarded (and still regard) your claims to "wanting to make peace" as nothing more than a canard. While I can't actually prove my belief you were insincere, it is irrelevant, as by that stage I had zero desire to engage with you. Hence all I wanted was for you to leave me alone - something you clearly refused to do.
Anyway, this thread was intended as a thank-you to Blue for some kind words, which I still appreciate.
this whole thing is the most pathetic piece of bullshit I have seen on RW since the lynching of human. Some weird and unpleasant new user strikes a aggrieved tone about easily reverted crap which has no real worth whatsoever, AD gets all hectic about it, Brx uses it to push home his bullshit and Blue users her tech rights in a manner she isn't supposed to in order to.....well fuck knows what she was trying to do. A fetid piece of rotten smegma, all of you.
If I'm so weird and unpleasant, I presume your attempts to make peace were genuinely bogus?
All you had to do Ace was quit posting to my talk page. For a while I did revert it, but that only encouraged you further. So eventually I gave up.
Let's make it clear - you won this battle. You're the big hero of RW. No-one shall ever disagree with you and survive.
Vox is a transparent concern troll. If he's fucking off, he should fuck off more quickly.
Its glorious when this place acts worse then CP.
I think you two both need to back off a few paces.
