SC

I wanted to pest a new thread because the other one had just gotten out of hand.

I very much appreciate the oppertunity I have to share my knowledge and opinions with all of the wonderful people here. I do however think, and this is my opinion, that what Milo said could have been said differently without all the name calling that was done. To me the name calling was an attack and I just don't understand why. I believe Milo is intitled to his opinion and I respect his ability to be honest, but don't you think it was more hurtful than helpful? Just me talking.

Hi fairy,

Thanks for writing to me.

If it’s ok though, I would like to keep the posting on the thread in question (the one that’s ‘gotten out of hand’). We've found from past experience that spreading a conversation such as this onto other threads becomes hard to follow.

Milo’s comments were negative, hurtful, and unhelpful. I see no debate in that. My hope is that these boards allow for insight for everyone when this happens. Not everyone here expresses themselves in a helpful, positive, or productive way. It’s the nature of these boards.

By simply stating what you have here, but to milo, I think you are making a positive and meaningful beginning in responding to him. He is undoubtedly angry and frustrated with people who appear stuck or people whom he feels are progressing fast enough. Instead of reaching out to positively un-stick people, he is using a method that is hurtful and less effective. His posts reflect frustration and anger within him, rather than the peace and well-being he says he feels.

If we keep this in mind, I don’t see a need for me to intervene further, and I thank you again for your caring. I also hope milo continues to post, and that he respects the guidelines of these boards when he does.

Peace,
SC

SC,

I've read nothing in Milo's posts that even remotely suggest that he is willing to take responsibility for his hurtful comments or take an honest look at his self. Therefore I don't expect anything different from him. I personally would like it if he goes away. Since he is breaking the guidlines to this message board I don't understand why he's allowed to continue to post here.

kathygy,

Since I'm on the boards today on this topic, I'll try to address your post.

I don't necessarily agree with your assessment of milo. I do hear some need for him to be here. I realize he is unhelpful, but being here doesn't require that you are helpful. Some people, just show up, and we hope to help them. That's what these boards are about. The good, and the bad sometimes.

In regards to breaking guidelines: If I were to kick people off who broke guidelines (even as much as milo has at this point), there would not be as many of the familiar nicknames you see here today. But keep in mind, there is only so much guideline breaking that will be tolerated and clarified before I will take further action. My being up on the boards today, is the beginning of possible further action.

Should I name a few people who have been such agitators in the past? No. I don't want to point fingers. Those of you who would like to step forward and name yourselves, you are welcome to do so. Not everyone who comes here, shows up as a good communicator, a helpful person, an insightful person, or even a very 'nice' person. But we've found that there's good in almost all of us when given a chance. I'd prefer to see this group 'bonding to help someone' rather than a 'ganging up to ban someone'.

Peace, and over and out on this topic. I hope folks can see my meaning here, or that those who know what I'm talking about can clarify more where needed.
