    Atrifice, for what's it's worth, I don't think you should leave just because you and I got in a minor bun fight. A person much wiser than I once said something to the effect that you should never let one incident color your whole perspective or a relationship. We could have both behaved better, so bygones, and don't leave on my account.

    Theres no grudge man. At this point I dont find it worth being on a forum where you need to watch what the topic is. Language and insults, yes! But regards to topics, hell no! Plus Im usually the first one to attack :censored: when I see it because when all of that kind of stuff floats around, people can get the wrong impression on something thats actually worth knowing about. I dont think people should hate something based on something they heard or without testing or witnessing first hand. In a nutshell, that is what both of those threads in question were about. Im not a fan of either of the 2 examples I used nor their products. But I can give my opinion on that because Ive used their products. And it is of course just MY opinion. You can agree or dont. But when you disagree, there needs to be a reason other than the fact that you hate Bear Grylls.

    I am sorry, but, I disagree. You (or any one) can like or not like, agree with or disagree with anyone(or anything) for any reason or for no reason.

    I was always told "You may disagree, so long as you are not disagreeable."

    Since you have decided to leave, I won't argue for you to stay.
    I'll just say Goodbye & Good Luck.
    Peace Be With You.

    Hate is not the same as disagreeing.

    Why make a big stink about "please delete my account"? All you gotta do is sign off and don't come back. Nobody's forcing you to drink your own pee or even our brand of KoodAid.

    IMO, since reasoning & apologies failed, this has now degenerated into baiting.

    I am going to lock this one in a moment.

    The only reason it isn't closed yet I hope someone can point me to all the threads I should read.

    I know I need to read these.

    http://edcforums.com/threads/bear-grylls-les-stroud.96380/

    http://edcforums.com/threads/why-are-certain-conversations-deleted.96412/

    http://edcforums.com/threads/stay-positive.96413/

    I could look at all posts by all parties but that takes too long. No I am not mad at anyone and no one is getting banned or anything. I just want to make sure I understand what is happening.

    I am going to read those threads and then come back and see if anyone can point to other things I should read. I will then lock this one if need be.

    I have to respectfully disagree. It started politely enough, but the first five posts consist of:

    • Your initial post
    • A warning that the topic had been done before, and always ended badly
    • You insisting on discussing said volatile topic, regardless of the consequences
    • Two more polite warnings

    ...and then the consequences.

    I'm sorry you feel slighted, and things did get out of hand, but you were warned specifically that that was the likely result. But you're not blameless yourself. You came onto a new forum and, rather than take a hint from those who've been here a lot longer than you, insisted on dredging up a topic that is the EDCForums equivalent of shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

    Now you're complaining about the consequences of the ruckus you insisted on starting. How is that the Forum's fault?

    [EDIT: Whoops, day late, dollar short. Ah well. Via con Dios, Artifice.]

    Good, he's gone. Problem solved. Everyone else can return to your regularly scheduled activities.

    I had cut and pasted from all the relevant threads and put them in word. I was writing something that would make the non-finished Robinson Crusoe thread look tiny. :p

    Then I come back to take a short peak and find where it is posted that I am not needed anymore. :(

    What I was typing up was not going to beat up on anyone. I think I will save what I have written so far and finish it later. I love boring people with super long cryptic sounding posts.

    Artifice is welcome to come back if he chooses.

    I also hope we never reach the point that we all agree on things...It will mean some groups are missing.
