    Maybe the cleaning lady will trash this self-serving thread when she gets around to this corner.

    It wasn't supposed to be funny. It's clear no matter what Al does it will be perceived in the worst possible light. Just feels quite icky. There was clearly no malice in the OP of this thread.

    I'd have to say there are others who haven't been given the benefit of the doubt by Alanzo, wouldn't you agree?

    Maybe you reap what you sow.

    No - while I can see Miscavage getting good and drunk the last day - if he's not still hung over from the initial shock, in his delusion he took down ESMB, I don't think all of Alonzo's stuff is trash, but the poking sticks and baiting us does get old.

    So you would rather be him? Act just like him? Ok.

    He has made some non-objectionable posts lately. But the OP here adds nothing to the board except his self-aggrandizement, which is what I am objecting to.

    It is damn problematic.

    Any defense of a pile in can always be interpreted as:
    So I won't try to defend my part of the pile ins. I tried to stop replying to Als threads because I stopped seeing the point in trying to discuss his chosen topics. It was just too frustrating, even if I do agree with some of his points I can not agree with his crusade in general.

    Not disagreeing. I just know you don't raise kids & dogs by punishing good behavior. Same with adults.

    I agree with you completely. You got to throw them some bones too.

    But... he! Started it! :hissyfit:

    (Sorry! I just couldn't resist!)

    What's good about it? He wrote an important-looking title, used an image someone had posted earlier, and associated his name/avatar with it.

    You don't raise kids and dogs by ignoring, allowing and defending bad behavior, either.

    ...and Alanzo will never get a break here, no matter what he posts, don't you think?

    He's a convicted criminal already. Judged and sentenced for all eternity.

    Not very clever but hardly a crime.

    As you wish. It's your board, after all. This thread will be preserved on the internet forever. So be it.

    Well no, it’s just that I’m allowed to have an option too. Doesn’t mean you can’t disagree. Sometimes I get sick of biting my tongue and playing peace maker. I don’t expect “compliance”. I hope you know what I’m saying here.
