Topic: Are you there Doc, it's me......Ailonna

Ailonna started this discussion 5.2 years ago #2,674

I was wondering what you think of me. I never really had an opinion of you for all the years I have been here, and until recently I never bothered to build one, and I was wondering if it was the same for you. There was a time in the long long ago where you used to address me, and then after you called me a "sicko" I never heard from you again. I know I don't contribute much, but I was just curious.

So what's up.

I do not recall calling you a "sicko," Ailonna. It doesn't sound like something I would say, but if I did say it, I must have been having a bad day, so accept my apology.

I do not form judgments about the people who write here. I only respond to the writing. I don't know if you can see the difference, but to me it is quite real.

My purpose here is not to evaluate anyone, but to respond to questions based upon my many years of experience in this field. That's the entire deal with me. I have no ax to grind here, make no money doing it, and don't care what anyone thinks of me one way or another.

If you have a question for me, I will try to reply.

Be well,
Robert

Yes, Ailonna, if he can say he doesn't know anyone he can treat them however shittily he likes without feeling guilty. Or he has that short term memory loss thing... or alzheimers, or dementia...

No apologies needed, this wasn't about getting one. Just randomly thought about what you thought since I have an idea what everyone else thinks. I wish I had more "meaningful' questions I could ask you, but I always end up with an answer before I even ask (when it is personal anyway). Thanks for the response.

She is still upset because the doc said that I bring intelligence into discussions that they would lack otherwise. Which is completely ridiculous a statement to make and I suspect he was trying to appeal to my ego, which worked by the way.

This:

> Hexi, it is true, sometimes goes a bit too far, but is by no means trolling, and brings an intelligence to the discussions which they would otherwise lack.

Right? How big is your head right now -___-

Yeah, that's what I meant. It would be enormous if I didn't see it for what it was. :)

You can also probably see why some might be upset. :P I personally think it's incredibly funny.

Hi, Ailonna-- If a question answers itself, I would say it was a very good question.

I see why, and it is funny, but it's also very stupid. Anyone's comments could bring intelligence to discussions if they left out the judgmental emotional aspects. Leave room for ideas and learning and I think a lot more could be said here.

dr-robert replied with this 5.2 years ago, 21 minutes later, 5 hours after the original post[^] [v] #0

Yes, Ailonna, that is always my aim, and some here seem to get it. Others seem to take whatever I say as some kind of judgment upon them as people. It never is. I just say what I see. If that works for you, great. If it doesn't, that's fine too.

I am taking steps right now to upgrade the system here so that a ban will really be a ban. Then we can get the trolls out of here permanently, eliminate the gratuitous insults, and perhaps then be able to go a little deeper into what really hangs us up as human beings in this troubled world.

I tried for over a year to avoid this, but there are too many fools and trolls hanging out here now, and it is not fair to those who want to use this space for real communication.

Hexi, that only bothered me a little until he started treating me like I'm a moron. If I don't respond to every single thing he says, kinda like you, I'm stupid and don't grasp the concepts. If I calmly disagree I am stupid and ranting while he looses his head over people being afraid of death. (Like he's got that one licked. They all say that until it's their time. Wonder why he doesn't watch scary movies?) If God himself came down and told him he was wrong he would have said that God wasn't a god damn nobel prize winner so it doesn't count. Now he's ready to ban everyone who talks to him like he talks to others. That's ok. It's his place. He can be a jerk if he wants to. I don't need to be around. It's not like anything resembling psychology or the study of it actually goes on here. I won't be missing much.

But you wanna talk about judgement??? Go read that religious thread where judgement is thrown around like candy.

If someone asks you something during an argument and you choose to ignore it then you should stop arguing.

You keep saying that I'm treating you like a moron yet when I asked how, you don't answer, you just repeat it. Furthermore, you didn't disagree because you didn't address anything in the first place. If say now that bananas are purple does that make your point invalid? I guess it does, according to you.

Hexi, you were talking to many people last night. The one long thing you said I didn't disagree so I had nothing to say about it. I moved on to what I did disagree with. I answered all the questions I saw, until the end there when I just basically stopped reading cause it was getting dumb. If I repeat something after you have asked me a question several times, even if you don't like what I'm saying, that is probably my answer. Somehow, I know its not gonna matter what I say here anyway. So, yeah...

So your answer to "How did I insult anyone" is "I hate people who insult others"? Ok. I won't ask again.

I didnt read that question. And I would have to go back and read to see where you did and I'm not going to do that. I know that you were right there with the Doc so if nothing else then you're guilty by association.

You didn't read that? I asked it multiple times, of you and Mekay. I didn't take part in the topic till way later so I don't really see how you could possibly say that. Guilty of what? Thinking? Yeah, I am guilty of thinking and will always be guilty of thinking.

Ok, so now I'm a liar, right?

For the record, I'm the one who said (to Dr. Robert) "you sound angry - or high" towards the beginning of the religion thread. I did not post anything else on that thread or for that matter, any other thread. I'm not a fool or a troll, so please don't ban me. I actually agree with the doctor's points and Hexi's and Molly's too. Credulity is toxic. My only point was that the OP asked a sincere question and telling him to handle his situation with an aggressive one (or two) liner was something other than helpful advice or progressive discourse. As you (dr. Robert) said moments later, it was a "joke." if Jake had said that, he would have been flogged. Just saying it as I see it. No disagreement with content at all.

I never said nor implied as such so I guess you'll have to ask yourself that question because you're the one accusing me of doing something everyone else can see I did not. I don't know why you're so upset with me but I'm not going to respond to you anymore.

This comment was pointless as no one even remembered you. Thanks for this though.
