    Can We Go Ballistic Against Smurfland Now?

    It seems that some MERB-eternally-banned/Smurfland-exiled members do not spare a calorie to attack MERB. Call it frustration, call it jealousy, whatever. A few months ago, I remember that MERB moderators deleted some posts dealing with the Marie-France plagiarism affair. In this affair, all the evidence was accusing Tom (the board's owner) of plagiarism, still MERB mods decided that this was none of their business and deleted all the related posts. Contrast that with what is going on in the blue waters. It seems that admin over there does not give it a shit about cross-board attacks. "Le bouffon du roi" over there posted a pseudo-scientific analysis comparing traffic over here and over there. Of course, these numbers only seduced some unaware Sps (let's call them V and M for short).

    Here comes my question, I know that MERB had always a clear policy when it comes to cross-board attacks and I respect this policy. Though would you allow smurfland bashing here (tit for tat) or would you decide that these are just some traffic-whores who absolutely need no attention?

    Why bother giving them any attention at all? They're always posting about us because they have nothing else to post about and anyone who's foolish enough to believe anything that Tony posts deserves to be taken for a ride. They love to take shots at me over there because they know I can't respond to them because I'm banned on merc. It's the same thing with them taking shots at merb, they're just trying to get attention and they know that the mods here won't let us hit back. The smurfs are a joke. If they held a smurf only GT, they wouldn't have enough people to fill a booth at Cleo's. As for the naive SPs he's attracted, he probably gave them free advertising for a few months. It shouldn't take too long for the usual suspects to start attacking their posts on the board like they do with every SP who tries to post there.

    And what else would you expect from Tom? He at least needs some posts to keep his board alive. He doesn't have the balls to tell them to stop posting about merb or to try and get control of his own board. He even let Ziggy come back after banning him permanently for posting personal info about him on merb! When I was on their committee i told them that things would end up like this and they refused to listen. In fact, I was told in no uncertain terms to stop attacking their 'protected' posters like Oliver and Tony on the board. Eventually I got permanently banned for speaking my mind about the state of affairs over there.

    Let them drown in their cesspool. They created it and they deserve it. And this post is already giving them more attention than they deserve and I'm sure that they'll be commenting on it as soon as they read it.

    Hello HFE,

    Really, WHY BOTHER! Why make ourselves into them just because they have nothing better to do than attack Merb. The main instigator basically hates the world and his only joy is screwing with everyone. One "Tool" didn't want to or couldn't handle serious discussion or the mods so he quit here to be a surly one-line quip entertainer there. If attacking Merb is the only thing that makes them happy then let them. Who cares. C'mon HFE, I know it would be fun to purge, but the hell with them.

    BTW...while the subject is up, I hope everyone gives GG a fair chance to be a member here if he chooses to return when his ban is over, and I hope the mods here clamp down hard on any instigation or attempt to relight old feuds. He has the same right to be here without anyone targeting him to tempt him into anger.

    Cheers,

    Merlot

    This thread should be closed and deleted.

    I invite other members not to feed the other board by attacking it. The Mods here have been wise in not allowing this in the past. It should be shown, though our silence, that we are bigger people.

    Remember, mud thrown, is ground lost.

    When you point a finger, 3 point back at you as does your thumb if your hand is held low enough.

    I'm not sure we should be talking about GG when he isn't here to respond, but as the subject has already been raised I can say that the change has been absolutely astounding ... his obsession briefly popped out again recently, but he was easily controlled... I think everyone (well almost everyone) will be happy to see him return here... you'll hardly recognize the new poster that he has become.

    And how many times have you yourself gone over to merc and taken shots at me, or merb in general, Dee? You can hardly include yourself in the group of 'bigger people' who post here.

    By the way, I also miss GG over here. We've had our ups and downs over the years but I miss the great discussions that we've also engaged in.

    Ok boys, we're the "green monster" and they are the "smurfs", let's leave it at this. We won't allow open war on M E R C or M E R C bashing here. This would be totally useless and would only be going down to their level. MERB doesn't need that kind of discussion threads to attract traffic.

    As far as GG, when he's back (if he feels like coming back) he will be welcome, same as any other member who can respect the rules. Moderators will do their best to keep the peace but GG will be the main contributor to the success of his return. For now, we would appreciate if discussions about him would be avoided since he can't participate yet.

    Thanks

    LOL,

    Good one! I guess I missed it when you called for an end to attacks on Merb and it's members and the deleting of all attack threads in blueland. Your own jibes must have distracted you from that goal. Can't wait for Mr. Trite to chime in.

    Cheers pal,

    Techman and Merlot,

    While you clearly display that the appreciation of irony may be dead, you show that the demonstration of stupidity isn't.

    You have attacked me, so I feel I am allowed one post in turn. That will be it. I'm trying to make less work for the mods and I think they agree that personal attacks are unhelpful.

    Read what Mod11 has said above and follow it... it's pretty well what I said in my post.

    Oh, and by the way, if some one says it's raining cats and dogs outside, you don't need an iron umbrella.

    Bless you both.

    Dee,

    You wanted action taken here opposite of what you do there. That's what came across from you. That's all I was talking about. You now added a personal attack also opposite of your main point. Congrats. I look forward to consistency in your principles.

    At least you came here to reply and didn't lose it with vile poisonous anger and schoolboy thuggish threats there. And having been accused many times by many of protecting the "genius", on and off the record, he's been illuminating.

    Cheers,

    Merlot

    Angry

    Where and how did I attack you in my post, Dee? How can stating the facts, that you have gone to merc to post attacks against me and this board, be considered an attack on you? And then you come back here with a direct insult directed at myself and Merlot. Why be such a hypocrite, Dee?

    I've met you a few times and I always thought of you as a stand-up guy, but your actions here and on merc have shown you to be anything but. You've been pissed at me ever since I took on Oliver on the boards because I didn't like some of his posts. Even Oli, who happens to be a friend of mine, doesn't give a damn about what happened in the past and you know that for a fact. So why does it still bother you so much, Dee? Get over it!

    And of course, I was right in my earlier statement. The usual smurfs, the ones with the yellow stripes down their backs, have jumped all over this thread with their typical useless comments. So predictable.

    Dee, Techman, Merlot, no need to go further, no need to even reply to my post. Please do as if this thread never existed for you.

    Thanks

    From what I've seen a break-way boards (and break-way of break-away boards) , there are alwys a few members who make it their forever, calling to lambast what they broke away from. And of course they are echoed by a few stooges that suck up to them. Not very manly behaviour but so it is.
    These people act this way for the same reasons that they "broke-away". They are oversensitive when it comes to taking it. And they are insensitive when it comes to dishing it out.
    That is the way it is here, and in other cyber world boards (and in the real world also).

    Is it double standards? Hypocrisy? Schizophrenia? Go figure...

    FYI, the purpose of this thread was by no means to start a smurfland bashing fest. Replies in this thread prove again that merbites are way more mature and smarter than surmfland residents as they did not resort to my-dick-is-bigger-than yours type of attacks. It shows you what kind of members contribute here and what kind of members contribute there. That was the purpose of this thread. QED.

    I will not argue; I am respecting Mod11's wise post. I invite you to consider honouring what Mod 11 posted which reflected my earlier comments. You might also want to read my other post and then consider deleting yours.

    As an experienced, respected poster your participation in The Positive Thread would be most welcome.

    Best wishes.
