I hate to chip into what sounds like a one-to-one diatribe, but Kai, honestly...if Winston wanted a professional "solutions committee" with a pocket full of solutions, he could have set something up by himself and cherry-picked from a long list of people who have been around for years and have given real and continuing contributions to the forum, however opinable and controversial they might have been.kai1275 wrote:I was the one talking on the phone with Winston, when I should have been meeting with clients for work, trying to find ways around the troll problem that was choking the forum, without him needing to ban anyone at all. You guys can shit where you sleep, and folks like Baoning for example could get high quality personalized advice, life-coaching, life-planning, done for him for a very small fee like 5 bucks or something by the senior solutions members. We could prepare something unique for him to help him solve his issues, without having to display it on the main forum for disgusting wolves like Cornfed to rip him to shreds and make a mockery of him, us, and the solutions. We cannot give phone numbers, names, specifics, and addresses for travel, work, and women etc. openly on this "un-moderated" forum exposed to GOOGLE!!!!! GET A f***ing CLUE!
I predicted this decline happening and I was trying my f***ing hardest to find a solution that would satisfy Winston's requirements and the needs of the members needing help. You can laugh at my failure to do so all you want, but HA is a TEAM EFFORT. This site is about as strong as it weakest links because of Winston's rules. At least I f***ing tried something. It's not too late either. Winston could start up this conversation on how to deliver a better product safely for young men out there anytime he likes. It's his prerogative.
The reason I stopped posting is because of two main things: Winston with his personal issues involving that terrible fight with AiB but mostly guys like you and The Professor, Darcy, Cornfed, Publicduende, and sometimes Ghost and Primebait. You guys bite the hands of others, shit on other people's reports, criticize people for no good reasons, and race bait. All of these things are some form of trolling. I could always sort of ignore Winston before if he was doing something silly or whatever. I know what his deal is. He and I spoke many times before over the phone and I can understand what his issues are. Fighting people like you guys is beyond tiresome. Nothing was ever good enough. You guys troll the shit out of people at the most unnecessary times. Because you guys are inconsistent with it, you always get away with it. I did not fall off the turnip truck yesterday. I know that there are people who are not trolls, like to do trolling things. You guys like to take your shots to avoid too much heat, or just attack a select few. Some guys that fight with others can eventually back off and a mutual respect can be formed like Prime or Hero of Man, SkateboardStephen, etc.. Not so with the bitter vindictive ones, such as you, Cornfed, or theProfessor.
So please do continue to keep that hamster spinning. You are quickly at this rate running out of bigoted mates here. I never sided with any particular faction here. Not even the pro-black ones. I side with the ones sticking to the mission of HA. Anyone trying to undermine the mission of HA is an enemy to this site in my opinion. We have enough enemies in Western Feminism. Why can't guys like you spend that kind of vitriol helping younger men instead of tearing down others?
I agree with gsjackson: the reason why you left is because you came in and wanted to take the forum by storm, trying to take a "leadership role" that nobody had offered you nor asked you to bother with. Ghost and Cornfed are two of the posters I have the least in common with, yet I respect their opinions because they're consistent and persistent, actually to the point of being painfully predictable, and most importantly, they do not show any of the arrogance and self-righteousness most of your last posts do. And I like to debate and criticise them just like I am doing now with you. In a true free speech framework, the right of everybody to express their opinions, so long they are well articulated and not overloaded with ad-personam insults, is just as sacrosant as my right to debate and test them.
What I respect a lot less is when somebody is wanting their posts and their opinions to rise to prominence due to some alleged magical quality or life experience, and getting all whiny and upset if that recognition does not come. There are hundreds of forums like HA that offer higher quality factual advice on travelling and settling abroad, even hitting the social/dating life, and are absolutely free of charge. What makes you think your solution would have worked? You tried, you didn't get much feedback. If you really cared about HA, you would have sticked around anyway, continuing to provide your wisdom for free like the others, instead of hiding behing your superhero cape and vanishing into the night.
I confess I didn't realise the massive difference once you left, yet that doesn't mean I would want your mouth shut forever. Drop that attitude and feel free to post again. And let me free to test your arguments again, if I so desire.
