So this is kinda pathetic.

    This dude messaged me with a "hey what's up." (YAWN.) I'm in the shower at the time, so when I get out, have a protein shake etc. and finally check my messages around half an hour later, the guy has said, "racist much?" and blocked me.

    It's like, you really think everyone who doesn't immediately reply to a headless body is a racist just because you are of an ethnic minority? Pull your head out of your bleeding ass kthanks. Your victim complex is showing.

    I had a guy come up to me at the bar and tell me I was racist because I didn't respond to a message online. I don't remember the guy, or the message, or anything. I probably ignored the message initially for the same reason you did.

    The irony was that he called me "color blind". It really pissed me off, and then I just realized he was just some some self-loathing, yet arrogant DB who can't even get his metaphors right.

    I think it's funny when people get pissed off about messages from unidentifiable strangers. icon_lol.gif

    FearTheFall, be glad that he blocked you. It seems that you're better off not interacting with someone so fragile, quick to judge, and prone to drama. Besides, from what I've seen, it is his loss.

    Yeah, I find it sad, but also kind of amusing when insecure guys can make up all these weird assumptions when they don't get an answer within 30 minutes.
    If I'm bored I mail them back, bombarding them with irony. But be careful with that, cos when they don't get the irony, they may even begin to like you again icon_lol.gif

    Also, at the bar this weekend, I had 3 people tell me that they knew me from online. Sorry, if I don't recognize you with a beard. Or that you have mistaken me for some other handsome gentleman.

    JakeBenson, personally I think it's in really poor taste to post private emails from another member in a forum. If this was some sort of attempt to make friendsrbetter look bad -- it backfired -- and only served to illustrate what a royal jerk you can be. God forbid someone would actually try to genuinely help you. icon_rolleyes.gif


    you're.....being.......sarcastic.........right?

    I think this is a good indication about on-line relationships of all kinds. So much of it depends on our own perceptions of the other person, not who they really are. I think people tend to fill in the blanks, sometimes idealizing the other or vilifying them.

    Did that sound sarcastic? I just think it's really mean-spirited to post private emails to a forum.

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    So I'm at fault for publicly humiliating someone with THEIR OWN WORDS because within 24 hours they SPAMMED my inbox with their psychotic hate before I even knew who they were? I'm sorry but when someone does something wrong in private it doesn't mean I have to keep it private. If a coworker grabbed my dick in private would you say I'm mean spirited for talking about it publicly? Yes, clearly I am the bad guy.

    I don't see anything I did wrong. I hadn't responded to the guy and he flipped out on me. His fault, not mine. I show the public what people do to me in private. I get flamed.

    Maybe so, but if they are unsolicited there isn't the same degree of confidentiality assumed. Taken to an extreme, if out of the blue someone sent you a nasty email, not sure it would be too far out of bounds to post it in a thread.

    Thanks for some back up! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm not to sure I really care about the ramifications of publishing this guy's messages to me after he insulted me in private (and in public later on). What privacy do you have when you flame someone and it's typed up? None.

    BTW I would feel guilty if I was replying to his messages and egging him on. I would be just as much at fault. But I wasn't. And I am showing you and the whole world that I dealt with a psychopath.icon_cool.gif

    I didn't say what you did was wrong. I was referring to a poster quoting something he thinks shouldn't be posted. icon_wink.gif
    Kinda doesn't make sense because if you did change your mind, you couldn't change your post - it's been captured and preserved by someone else.

    Not necessarily. There are many occasions where RJ members have met with others, though probably not with those involved in disputes. Several of us have been encouraging the site owners to set up regional folders that would facilitate getting to better know those in your area, possibly leading to meet-ups.

    jakeyb, you knows that i love you, and i totally agree with you and the creep factor on those e-mails, but it does say in the forum rules that you're not allowed to post e-mails from other people... or else the magic moderator fairy will come after you.
