No I’ve said my sorries. I can only take so much responsibility for how my words were interpreted.
It’s easier to lash at me than to look inwards.I won’t accept your labels of me. Guard dog meant you went on the defence (sweetly) of Anita in a place that didn’t need it. You’re calling me names and I find that reactionary not responsive. I’ll be the grown up then and bow (wow) out .
Enjoy. Thank you for your kind hospitality.November 3, 2015 at 11:20 pm #86719AnonymousInactive
Sorry I’m festering now.
Jack i called yu a guard dog. Poor you.
You called me a drunk
low hitting below the belt,like a label
you called me incoherent
Your words are not those of a emotionally intelligent person.
You’re being the savage one in this argument. But don’t worry like a true attack dog you soon saw md off. Good days work for you.
At least you got to feel something. Fun wasn’t it?November 4, 2015 at 7:57 am #86730AnonymousGuest
* Pomplemous: Your apology to Jack for calling him a “guard dog” was meaningless. After you apologized you repeated the insult you apologized for and then came back with more insults. I have a gift for you: Wisdom of Mothers” it is called, your own thread with my comments as well as Jack’s. If you read those attentively and re-read them you have so much information and insight there to fuel in you lots and lots of healing.
Having given you this valuable gift, a gift on incredible value in potential, I will no longer respond to any thread you may start, any thread you already started or any comment you post anywhere. Without further healing on your part, you are only spreading the poison that is inside of you and I will not support that.

Another one bites the dust.
Two people become Anonymous in the course of one forum discussion!
Anita and Jack: Maybe you guys could become friends in real life. Commune on FaceBook. Join the military and be in the same squadron/platoon. I appreciate your alliance, but at this rate you’ll be talking to yourselves by the end of the year!
Challenge (if you choose to accept it, it is difficult): Try letting a comment hang. Try not getting in the last word. Try waiting a day before responding. Sometimes it’s more powerful if someone else (a third??) backs you up or confirms your thoughts.
I honestly couldn’t understand why one person left, but I also honestly couldn’t understand how the downward spiral of the “guard dog” issue happened.
I notice on Tiny Buddha there are many “drive bys” ~ people ask a question, and then leave. I gotta tell ya, I’ll miss Moon Gal and Pomplemous! I’d hate for the regulars to be just us!
This is kind of why I only post once a day. To encourage different voices and to cut down on this type of head butting.
Sorry I’m late to the party on this, but maybe we all should take a sabbatical?November 4, 2015 at 11:07 am #86734AnonymousGuest
There are 297 pages of communications on this forum, starting 2 years and seven months ago. If you click on page 297 and go backward you will see that hundreds of people started threads and commented on threads since that time. You will see hundreds of usernames coming and going. Sometime along the way, you, Inky started commented and I believe you are the most lasting participant in this forum. Where did ALL the OTHERS go? Where are they?
If a couple of people indeed left the forum as a result of this thread, this is only the NORM. Everyone but (as far as I know) YOU left the forum as a result of one thing or another.
So if you look at the wider perspective, at the history of this forum you will see, that there is nothing at all unusual here. People have been leaving all along the way. Including participants who posted many, many times. All have left, but (thankfully)- you.
Some have left to come back with a different username.
Again, the reference to “Real life” – by you too, Inky. This is what I say- again: THIS IS real life. Check it out, Inky- pinch yourself, you are a real person. Ask someone else if they too see the screen and my post here, if they see it too, it is probably real, don’t you think? In actuality, many are MORE real here than outside this forum because here, if someone doesn’t like my post, I don’t have to worry about him or her turning on the music real loud all night. And nobody here is paying my bills. So often, MORE real.
As far as your military comment, suggesting that the alliance between me and Jack is not appropriate on this forum, I disagree. Again, for me, this is real life so there are real emotions and real alliances. Even if Jack himself withdraws because of the negative criticism, it would still be real, only no longer ongoing.
As far as I know I am not breaking the stated rules of this forum. Ultimately it is up to the owner of website, up to the financial considerations of the owner (and advertisers) to decide whether to remove me or anyone else from the forum. If I am removed, I will be removed (if I leave voluntarily I will say goodbye by posting my last thread titled GOODBYE, otherwise it means I was removed and did not have the opportunity to say my goodbye).
What it comes down for me is why are we here? Why am I here? I am here not so to “have something to do” – not so to vent. Not so to “have company”- I am here on my journey of healing, awakening, evolving. This journey requires authenticity, real emotions. And so, I am here. The ongoing interactions have served me well.
And lastly, you suggested that “maybe we all should take a sabbatical”- you may, Inky. I am here to stay for as long as it is working for me AND for as long as I keep getting as many positive feedbacks from other participants as I have been getting.
This healing journey I am on, many start it, few keep going and going and going. I keep going.

Whew! what a thread! I just finished and I have to say I totally agree with Inky. Moongal and Pomplemous, come back! We need you! And do we really need that awfully mean guard dog ? I don’t think so. (oh no, he’ll probably attack me now, yikes!)

This is just a test:
Whew! What a thread! I just finished and I have to say I totally agree with myself, and I am here! I need me! And do we really need that awfully mean Glenda? I don’t think so (oh no, she’ll probably attack me now, yikes!)
P.S. Please Glenda, bring on more of your attack, we need more…indeed.November 4, 2015 at 3:34 pm #86762
Am I the only one who doesn’t feel safe on this forum?November 4, 2015 at 5:54 pm #86768AnonymousGuest
No, you are not the only one. When I read your post before last I felt… unsafe.
Maybe you can describe how your posts can be safe and how you believe other can post safer posts?
anitaNovember 4, 2015 at 5:55 pm #86769AnonymousGuest
Correction: can you describe how others can post safer to you posts? And how define SAFE on this forum?

Good Morning All,
Again I’m going to give the ultimate challenge: Let a post lie. Don’t have the last word.
With the challenge issued, may this be the last post in this thread.
Blessings.November 5, 2015 at 11:40 am #86803
Yes Inky I couldn’t agree more. Thank God we got people like you on here. People with real maturity, who don’t have to have the last word.November 5, 2015 at 1:55 pm #86811jockParticipant
For impersonating a moderator, I sentence you to one week on Tiny Buddha, in solitary confinement. No visitors allowed! 🙂
I don’t want the last word. This thread can go on forever, for all I care.
But if you look back, you’ll notice that a lot of posts have taken on the authoritarian tone of a moderator. Hence my assertion that we do in fact need a moderator on Tiny Buddha. A moderator would’ve closed it down long ago. I’ve seen forums, where at the first sign of conflict, the thread is closed. perhaps that is going too far. We don’t have to be that strict but still there needs to be boundaries so people avoid name-calling for example.
Call me Old Red, Lassie, Beethoven, Good Ol’ Guard Dog Jack, Snoopy, whatever….

I just looked at these last posts for the first time- hilarious, the last one! Just hilarious! Love it.
Inky, good advice in your last post here. If Jack wasn’t so funny, I would have followed your good advice today as I did yesterday.
