I don't really know who is it that has the problem but I think I know why. And at this point, it's no secret.
Whenever I was confronted about it, it just consisted of certain posters being outright rude, unbecoming and disrespectful. Because they came at me wrong, I either retaliated or I just flat-out ignored them.
Yet in still, rather than addressing me (privately or publicly) in a reasonable fashion, they have chosen to report me to moderators.
I have my own issues with that but whatever...if that's how you roll, then that's how you roll.
But regardless, I have been getting messages from moderators. And to put it plainly, it's not fun.
So while all of this is going on, the level of hostility that I am getting has gotten ridiculous.
Look...I know a lot of UKMixers think I'm being this evil argumentative bastard or that I'm always trying to spin things in favor of whoever it is I'm talking about...
...but that's honestly and truly not the case.
Ever since I was a boy, I've always loved having thoughtful, adult conversations. I use to listen to my parents to talk to other adults or listen to my cousins to talk to their friends and stuff...
Sometimes, I would join in.
It may be hard to believe but I was that 10 year old who would actually carrying a conversation with people three times my age...
And after all these years, nothing's changed.
If it adult conversation leads to debate, then what's wrong with that?
Well, we all have our own opinions and everyone's entitled to it so let's just move on...
Let's not won't get into anything too serious or too intelligent. Don't want to hurt anyone's feelings
Lets do all of this talking and say nothing
That's not doing anything for you at the end of the day.
You're not learning anything new. You're not really thinking critically. You're not differentiating objectivity and subjectivity. You're not growing.
Healthy debate keeps the juices in your head flowing.
At least that's where I'm coming from.
I have flaws. I make mistakes. Like everyone else, I have said and done things that I wish I hadn't. And I know I'm different from most (if not all) of you.
...but is that a bad thing?
Am I doing anything wrong? Have I offended you? Do I threaten you in some way?
What is it about me that disturbs you so?
Since I know some of you are wary of coming to me privately, I'm making this whole thing public.
This is the place to come here and be open and upfront about how you feel and how I "make you feel."
I mean, really. Say what you want. Get it off your chest. Let me know.
And if some of you guys think that I'm the type of person that will act like some trolling lunatic and bully you, then the mods will be all over this like butter on bread.
