GLP is a 'community', let's do what we can to make it a better place....
sigh

I am posting this for a few reasons.

Firstly, I have been challenged in calling GLP, a community. While there is a heinous influx of beligerence and foul behavior (which I shall address in a moment), whether we LIKE IT, BELIEVE IT or not, this place is indeed a community. A meeting ground for all walks of life.

A BEAUTIFUL FUCKING MESS is how I see it. Many of us share bonds and a likemindedness that is unparalleled. That has an unequivical beauty and sentiment about it. Something all of us here are clearly in search of.

That being said, one of the big issues lately seems to be the way people treat eachother. I have said this many times, it's fun to be a ball buster. It's welcomed, even revered. There are clever ways of making our points and giving eachother a bit of hell. That is a signficant aspect to the enjoyment in this place.

Mind you, I'm no fucking priss by any means...but when I read some of the comments around here and my jaw drops, that's NOT GOOD. Takes alot for me to get to that point. It also takes quite a bit for me to be brought to tears by the badgering of another human being. Things do cross the line, even here. I don't care how tough we all are or are 'supposed' to be as GLPers. Some of this shit is simply classless, CRUEL and downright deplorable.

Some of you know me, most do not...but I think many of you do know that I do my best to maintain my composure and integrity in these situations. I do not refer to myself, I am taking note of what I've been witnessing among EVERYONE.
I'm not a lightworker nor a tree hugger. (k, maybe a bit of tree love...)... I just implore all of us to DO FUCKING BETTER BY EACHOTHER. Everyone in this place has dignity. It takes alot to come here and bear your soul, only to be ridiculed and torn apart. (I'm no angel. I have had a few laughs at the expense of others and subsequently felt like complete garbage about it. I will not allow that to be the case EVER AGAIN)

Is it too much to ask that we treat eachother as we want to be treated and to keep our bashing within the realm of what we ourselves can actually accept? Why go to such lengths to cause another human being pain and despair??? It's our difference, our ideologies, our individuality that make us special. Why would anyone want to take that away from another.

I apologize for the longwindedness of this post. I just really wanted to put that out there. I believe most people act out of their own turmoil and not wickedness. Help me keep believing that is true.

I think it's a great sentiment. Sadly don't be surprised if you get some really negative responses. I've come to the realization that some people are miserably unhappy and want other to feel the same way.

I love you Opeth, you're are one of the loveliest souls I'm met on these boards. I admire your moxie.

It seems, unfortunately, that it is too much to ask. This is a business. It's a business that can't survive without AC's. Being an AC seems to give the AC power to say whatever makes him(or her) feel better about themselves.
Think of it as a service to help unhappy people feel better about themselves by trying to hurt others :)

Thanks doll. You're a really amazing girl. Good fucking seed there!

Not trying to fish for lovey things though. I've genuinely disturbed. I hate the way shit has been going down around here. It's despicable...and not clever nor fun. There are lines. People have souls. I feel that many around here are seeking and fragile. Sick of seeing everyone being stomped on for the cheap kicks.

When do I go out of my way to be mean to people? Most of my posts are silly and horribly unfunny but never cruel.

I go out of my way to be nice to ac's because I was one for so long. It always bothered me being treated like shit just because I was not a member.

You obviously have this set idea of who people are that does not match the reality.

In fact you should turn the mirror on to yourself if you want to see mean for the sake of being mean.

I'm not against being a ball buster. I'm just saying, when something is out of bounds, it is. Everyone around here should have a point where they say... you know, that's probably a bad fucking idea.

You don't cut down a person to the point where they feel unsafe, or threatened. That's not fun or amusing for anyone. I'm talking about the extreme hateful shit, not the day to day razzing we all do. Very different. I like most of the obnoxious fucks to be honest.

I agree 100%

Problem is, we are conditioned to sit and wait. No one wants to suffer the consequences alone. At this point, the state of things, our only true power is in numbers...and believe you me, people ARE working on it.

Bring the fucking revolution.

Goodbye, halcyon days...

 There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.
