Alyuh men is kicks yes...

When man gettin yuh vex here...after yuh try with about 3 post to be diplomatic yuh must just tell them HYMC and f**k YOU!

Dey does take it nice after.

That said I usually express my thoughts based on the amount of free time I have....or if somebody talk a good pile and I hadda let them know what time it is.

But Usually I Let plenty ting slide.

I think we real tolerant and let everyone have they say ....eg we let number 1 trinba, rf, lionpaw, ja2099 etc and trini/bajanscout talk they ting

But this is the cyber rum shop dont let this ting bother you...then again people does come here for therapy.

Fli, what about an association where forumites could provide alerts about a poster who didn't get enough licks for posting a certain level of dotishness.....

Ever thought about forming a division within FABA, possibly called DODACO? (Department of Deserved Additional Cuss Out).... I know the mission statement might be a bit contra to FABA, but the service is just as valuable and needed on here at times......

Example, Zeppo could use some more licks here:

Thanks in advance for your consideration

Man iz get too tie up wid who feel dey bright, and who say what and how dey say it..it doh make a difference....

One thing I come tuh real appreciate on this forum is that  there is collective wealth of knowledge on here....and yuh could learn alot by either layin' low and just reading, postin' nonsense and having another poster pull up yuh socks or by doing a lil research before yuh post on a thread (Unlike some, I eh have no issues wid a poster who uses wiki & google to find the facts and then come and post because yuh hadda learn sometime, somewhere and somehow...and if yuh memory bad, nuttin' wrong wid a lil refresh- dais the power of the internet.)....and if yuh hold a lil verbal blowout in the midst of the learning process...oh well.....iz a cool scene still.

But Fli seriously consider my earlier post nuh  ;D

Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

Good afternoon

Now I don't normally come on this side of dey fence, but I felt it necessary to post.. First off, and excuse me folks, cause i'm trying to figure this out.

Can someone explain to me the differences between virtual bullying (of an adult), and telling someone that they typing shit and wasting bandwidth time, or cuss you out for playing the arse and mashing up people serious thread.

When you say bullied/prevention from expressing one self, which i think are different by means of no one can virtually prevent another from expression, UNLESS they are banned. So FLi with all respect I hadda disagree with that.

But explain the bullying part for me. Cause as ah Trini I never thought that was possible, knowing the type of people we are. Unless people overseas too long and dey skin get thin.


Please and thanks

The main purpose of this thread was  a jovial way of examining some concerns of some of the older forumites who have intimated that the forum has changed and nowadays the rhetoric from some posters making others hold their tongue cuz they fraid to get cuss and in some cases, some ppl stop posting altogether cuz the talk often goes completely off topic and gets personal.

We all know we have 'ignorant' ppl on the board and we have all lived with that in real life.

But its true what Omar says, in that the board is really a microcosm of the real world.

You'll see some of the weaker spirited posters who align themselves with the perceived stronger posters and support them in their threads to protect themselves from getting attacked and ensuring they have support when they need it.

It's like a gang (not used in the violent colloquial context) sub culture.

In the real world organisations like FABA do exist.

 To address Sushilla's point, I used the word 'prevent', cuz that sort of sums up what effect the picong having on them. It's preventing them from posting; they're being 'persuaded' not to post or 'fearful' of posting due to the previous reactions of other posters to similar topics raised.


But the bullying and umbrella term victimisation are taken seriously up in the UK, especially in employment and your job can be in jeopardy for what we in Trini would see as ole talk. There are also big campaigns and many organisations against it in schools here, including cyberbullying (by text, by msg board) which has become prevalent, but yea it has largely gone a bit overboard.

But FABA is sure it can make a difference here.....;)

Kicker, ah not sure how DODACO and FABA can work in tandem, but perhaps DODACO can up the ante and FABA can offer the counsel and promise of retribution.

All yuh never see Get Carter.

Thanks FLi, but this is what have me confused.

We talking virtually and not reality.  Reality, that is a different bowl of soup.

If you considered yourself as being virtually bullied, won't you hide ? or in fact take your postings elsewhere ?
Or is it that you love the abuse of it all, or more importantly love the sympathy you get from those you align yourself with - that being the 'percieved' stronger posters.
Cause if this is the case, is now you looking to be bullied.  How often are the stronger posters online anyway? Unless you hiding behind the offline button and await one of them to show up and then post ya tata. Is now I consider you a mental institution havetobe.

Now i'm trying to visualized an adult (male, cause it ain't have no woman on SW like that) in the comfort of their home, in front of their computer shaking like a leaf hoping that one of the stronger posters would come and bail him out. When all they simply have to do is delete their post, ,or just don't post at all if you have nothing to say.

There are many posters from all walks of life in here. A hand full of them I actually scan both sides of the forum to read their thoughts. Others I wish to God the founders and dem create an ignore button....real fass (hint).  Granted you can't please everybody with your thoughts - in fact you not suppose too. If that is your intention then you'll need to create your own forum and disconnect the response button.



hmmm ah starting to like over here boy...allyuh have nice threads.
oman allowed on dis side nuh??? ;D
