2. Here is mine.
subject: Earth to Arrogance

I can't imagine why anyone in the world would want your opinion or why anyone would want to waste a minute of their life with you. You never say anything kind or constructive about anyone; you always twist the details of what you've read in just such a way as to pack a nice painful punch. You are an arrogant self-serving painfully naive condescending angry white male who hates everyone, insults everyone, and likes playing devils advocate so much that by now anyone here with half a brain has pretty much figured out that you are evil. I'll bet you're on more ignore lists than anyone else in the entire list of Democratic Underground. So go to hell, you miserable waste of flesh and stay the hell out of my threads. You'll be back on ignore as soon as I'm done.

QUOTE On a good day I probably alert like ten posts or more. The funniest part is when you see them on other sites trying to claim that they were discriminated against or kicked off for their liberal views and try to impose this grim tone on it when you know that it was more like the bully video where the kid got slammed, and now they are limping with a broken ankle.

35. You do not necessarily have to break the rules to disagree with me.
Try it. There is one particular poster who is very good at it, and as much as I'd like their posts to be disallowed here, I cannot usually find a rule violation.

12. I think it helps people look at themselves.
These things were said when it was felt that no one was looking. I think if people look at them, react to them, and see others' reactions, they might think that they should avoid saying these things. It brings to light the public disapproval of private behavior.

Keep an eye on your PM's for the next six months or so and part one of the tome may or may not arrive. ;-)

Although I received quite an assortment of them at a particular discussion board for people with anxiety and panic disorders.

If there's one thing panic and anxiety sufferers know how to do, it's hyperbole and hysteria via PM.

Wish I had saved some of them.

43. I once got this
really well formed and profanity laced tirade that was sent to me by mistake. I couldn't figure out for the life of me what the hell I'd actually done or even who the person was that sent it to me.

It turned out it was one of the PUMA's from 2008 trying to PM someone to whose post I'd replied and in their pretty obvious anger they hit the PM on the wrong post.

Simply copying and pasting angry PM's without knowing who sent them wouldn't really accomplish anything. However, posting who sent those PM's would be a violation. Hence, I really don't see what your point is other than encouraging people to drag out old negative memories.

65. Nope. It's just internet voyeurism
I could sit here and say "I got this PM that told me to go to hell", but without saying who sent that to me, the only thing it could do is provoke a "oh, that's horrible" or "why did they send that" response. It doesn't do anything for the person who actually sent that PM to me, doesn't hold that person accountable. However, identifying the person who sent me that PM would be akin to a "name and shame" thread.

PS - not saying that anyone actually sent that PM to me, just using it as an excuse. Actually most PM's that I get are supportive.

70. For the second time, the purpose is not to hold that person accountable.
If people see examples of how silly other people look when they're throwing a tantrum, they may think that they would not want to look that silly in the future. You are right, by not posting the name, I am not holding that person accountable. But that is not what I am trying to do.

60. I'll answer. I've only gotten two angry ones.........
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 01:37 PM by socialist_n_TN
and MANY more supportive ones. Both of those people yelled at me for questioning their "liberal" credentials. What's ironic is that both of those guys posted more RW talking points than ALMOST anybody else on here. I actually appreciated the fact that they chose to get into a pissing contest by PM rather than on the board though. It showed me that they probably WERE sincere and NOT trolls.

I've came to the conclusion that the angry PMs that I've gotten are a direct result of the RELATIVISTIC nature of the word "liberal" nowdays. The argument has shifted SO far to the right, that people who are MORE right than Nixon THINK that they're "liberal". Since my views on the political spectrum are more grounded in historical left wing politics, this is where we disagreed. Using my view, I'm really not that left at all. I'm not center-left, but I'm not far left either. Whereas those guys are DEFINITELY RWers looking at their politics from a historical perspective.

IOW, it's a difference in perspective over the definition of "liberal" or "left".

67. I'd have to go way back . . .
In 2002, I was a moderator on what was then the foreign affairs forum, which for all intents and purposes is now what we call the Israel/Palestine forum.

Trust me, one side was as bad as the other.

I was told to "burn in Hitler's Hell" for not banning somebody. That was from a pro-Palestinian poster.

A pro-Israeli poster wrote to tell me he was "pissed" because I locked a thread posted by another pro-Israeli poster in favor of an almost identical one posted by a pro-Palestinian member. We couldn't simply combine threads in those days, so in such circumstances one thread was locked with instructions to continue the discussion with the one that remained open. The thread that remained open was usually the older thread or the one with more posts, as it was in this case. Nevertheless, it didn't satisfy this fellow, who had a troublesome history of making baseless claims of anti-Semitism.

Neither poster is still with us. The fellow I didn't ban was banned for a time and then reinstated, but has not posted here in a long time.

77. That is a good point; no one objects to the fact that DU posts a "hate mail" column occasionally.
It's one of my favorite features of DU.
