Disappointed...

Post by Ray Luxury-Yacht @ Sun Oct 20, 2019 1:32 am

Good evening everyone. Well, I was directed to have a look over here by another 'PH-er', as apparently it's a great alternative forum. So I registered, and here I am.

After having a nose round, I discovered a number of threads discussing some of my posts on Pistonheads. I was disappointed to hear that I am described as being, amongst other things, a 'knob' and a 'wanker'. I know the internet is a virtual world where you can't take anything too seriously, but I have to say I was more than a wee bit upset.

I post on Pistonheads to have some really good discussions, in an adult fashion, and to hopefully amuse and entertain to a certain extent. I had no idea I was causing an element of vitriolic disdain elsewhere. I'm sorry about that. I try my best to be polite, non-combative and fair when I post something.

I'd be genuinely interested to hear from any of the posters that have described me in such a fashion as to why they have done, without first challenging me either on Pistonheads or via PM. It's not very nice, is it, to do this kind of thing behind someone's back? For the record, I'm not being precious, I have fairly broad shoulders. I am just genuinely interested to understand what I did wrong!

All the best, RL-Y.

I bet it was because you posted some stuff like a knob and a wanker. And they were talking about you, not to you.

Welcome to CTF btw, you cnut.

Cripes, don't tell our mums!

If you want to stick around and post stuff then that would be lovely. I did a search and I do remember one of the posts that came up, in which you went to a "mainly 'coloured' suburb of London" and did an impression of a black person to some black people to avoid attack. It's hard to explain why that's funny to someone if they don't think it's funny but I must say rereading it made me smile all over again. But it was probably years ago and frankly I cringe at a lot of the stuff I posted a few years ago (perhaps you do the same).

Anyway, I genuinely hope your evening wasn't marred. As SM says, that thread about PH is quiet these days. It's certainly not the most edifying thread on CTF, but then a forum tends to develop a certain tone and culture which can be pretty funny from the outside (think mumsnet) and, well, that's what that was about.

So thanks for the giggles, hope you stay around and do more than search your own name you nutbox.

Out of interest, is it normal to Google/any form of internet search oneself?

I'm slightly surprised this place is getting recommendations on PH. I mean I post there, and I would never recommend this place, it's packed to the rafters with wankers.

Wait, I may have that the wrong way round. Or have I? :scratchchin:

First, welcome. As you are finding out, we don’t take ourselves terribly seriously here. Some people like that. Others don’t. The only person who can decide if that’s right for you is you.

Now, this:

I dot get why anyone would think there is a need to “challenge” someone directly about something they’ve written as a precondition to writing about it. If you think someone is full of it, why take the time to get down in the gutter and roll around with them?

If you want to understand why others have expressed the views they have, just read back what you wrote and what they wrote. Then decide whether you agree that they may have a point. Maybe they do; maybe they don’t. It’s not the end of the world either way.

Now post lots, preferably funny and/or interesting, and don’t take yourself or anyone else here too seriously.

Ya big girl’s blouse.

It might also be worth saying who it was thatpissed you off I'm pretty sure it wasn't me, but I doubt whoever it was remembers.

Yeah, talk to the face not to the hand, girlfriend, or whatever, not bothered.

Hello and welcome.
I don’t really remember the comments in question but are you sure you’re not confusing agression with pisstaking?
The post on question definitely deserved pisstaking and I would expect to be mocked myself for typing similar.
Contrary to your thoughts I would find it really odd if anyone pm’ed me to mock it

I'm not a big fan of the thread here that pastes what people have said on PH, but things like -

Now then, why are you fronting us bruv? We're just tryin' to survive around 'ere isn't it? (that may not be the exact quote)


need to be brought to peoples attention, especially if they have had a bad day at the office and need cheering up.

I couldn't find any references to you being called a knob or wanker, nor any vitriolic disdain. Just deserved mockery for your made up stories.

"I know a lot of people, who regularly mess up people who are silly. So don't be silly - you guys all don't look silly...you're not gonna be silly and cause a problem for yourselves, are you?"

Read those words back out loud.

Raymondo, if you can't accept being called a cnut then this is probably not the place for you.
That said, we are also good at curing disease with candles and ball cupping so don't write is off.
