I now see what the fuss is all about.
Its actually about my friendship with Gerard.
This seems to have upset a few people, who dont like the fact that I now get on well with Gerard.
The other thing I note is this control issue. Yep, a person who owns a forum DOES have control of it, thats true.
Well, I run a forum, and that means I do have control over it. How I use that control will either be wise and good or not, depending on diferent peoples opinions.
What I CAN assure everyone is that I dont have any control issues. It strikes me that those who continually tell ME how I should or should not run MY forum are the ones who have contol issues.
In my every day life I am demonstrative, outspoken and upfront, which DOES irritate some folks, granted. MOST like me for other characteristics.... as I also show love and care to all, giving when I can, forgiving wrongs done to me, and cheering up those who are down hearted. This is a FACT, and I could produce many people to vouch for my integrity.
OK, so I can be a bit in your face, I am opinionated, I stand firm in my views..... but is that wrong? Yep those saome perople I copuld produce to vouch for my integrity, and my lovingness would also say I can be a bit in your face, and at times argumentative.
If I come over as overly confident, or too opinionated, then it is only ONE aspect of who I am.
On a bad day, when I am in a bad mood, I can serioulsy upset someone, I know that well enough. However, MOST of my time I try hard to be loving and kind to all I meet.
Those who know me well know I am very well read, inteligent, knowledegable, and a loving person.
It seems to me that those who are copmplaining about how I run tjhat forum are simply kicking out against boudasries. These I find, tend to edislike rules altogether, and have an aversio n to any authority figure.
Not my problem, as I can bow to the authoprity of others, when required, even if they are not as smart as me, not as talented as me, or not as right as me!!!
