PostSubject: A couple people can really make or break a forum   Thu Jun 14, 2012 2:08 am

After it's all said and done, I'm really glad I got treated like shit at IS & SN.

This is because I would have spent my efforts increasing their content. Now I can do it over at my forum, and I don't mind doing it over here as well, as I believe in making more friends than enemies these days, and that we can mutually benefit each other-- if growing this forum is even of interest to lils.

I went on my earlier rampage because yogidee was still bombarding my forum and members, which she still might be, who cares, and that she encouraged bluesmaker to quit my site and come over here, so that was just my momentary retaliation because lils didn't do anything to stop it, so that was in a very passive way encouraging it.

In a more macro way, I just do it for the lulz because at the end of the day when you close your laptop, none of this shit matters and it's only your family and the people living within proximity that really matter.

But, also in a larger way, I have a feeling that my Spiritual Discussion Forum for Indigo Children & Adults & Trolls will continue growing and evolving, as I have already sparked a flame that does not look like it will be dying down soon.

Initially I just treated the place as sort of a personal blog on steroids, so I was fine with both my friends and enemies coming to trash the place like it was my old fraternity house, because I would get involved in the mindless destruction as well. As our site started to gain steam and others started to take personal interest in my cause(s), I started to put a greater interest into the site as a whole-- and certain events reminded me that I did in fact start the site for other people.

I do feel like I can combine both my own interests materially and my passions, as well as my wish to do great things for others, and merge all these concepts into one, as I am devoting somewhat 24/7 of my time into building up my site, I do feel like all those involved can and will be minimally compensated for their time so this doesn't turn into a pure voluntary effort for the long-term;

Although I know all those who assist me in this endeavor are not in it for the money or any type of material gain, it is still my goal to compensate those who assist me achieving my vision, some way, some how.

I have released control somewhat to others, although I always retain absolute veto power, you will see drastic changes, some have already been occurring-- but I have put in place a couple global moderators to clean up the trash and comply with users' requests to have provoking or disgusting or rude messages deleted;

I have bent a little bit in my no-censorship rule in order to appease the more hypersensitive souls which I am trying to attract; I know not all will be happy with this decision, but it is the case that not everyone can always be appeased; I do still feel like I can continue Ray Bradbury's vision of non-censorship while still respecting everyone's wishes;

I don't know if anyone actually believes in astral or what not, because I am still skeptical, but I do believe and have felt that there are forces out there to destroy me and what I am doing, and I am working to push through these boundaries every day.

Anyhoo, end of manifesto.

What did you expect? You know how people's mind works better than most.

Dude, you are an asset to any forum when you are not acting like a psycho. You brought life to the IS,SN, SSS, and Clockwork, but you also brought death. You could have the most popular spiritual forum on the web by now if wasn't for that. People who some affinity to your ideas would slowly drift towards your site and bring their friends with them.

Who cares???????
You obviously do, otherwise why retaliate?

I agree with you, but not everyone is like that. In fact most people take what's going on these forums very seriously.

As you said before, society would collapse really fast if it was run by anarchists. As long as you have more than one person interacting with each other, you will need some rules. I just hate the stupid, blind and inflexible ones.

I'm on my phone right now so I don't wanna type a novel ... I agree with Oliver for the most part.

I just want to add that anarchy isn't really without rule ... It's a very different form of rule but it's not like there aren't any.

there must be things to break in order for things to be broken

if there are no more things to break, what will the thing-breakers do?

so there must necessarily be rules in the first place, to encourage the rule breakers to challenge them...

and so it always begs the question, which came first, the chicken or the egg?

neither! a reptile evolved into an egg and shit out a chicken.

My attorney told me to stay away from Generic Boys, at least for a while, but I find this part really interesting.
Can you be a little more specific?
