I've been reading and not getting involved because essentially, it's none of my business, however one thing I would like to comment on is a remark that was made which I found to be particularly rotten.
"Hitler, Stalin and Mao were also part of the same species.
If you measure in terms like that Phensman, you should kill yourself right away!"
I appreciate and respect that people are trying to get their opinions and points across, but this was quite harsh. Perhaps there might have been a better way of expressing that point?
You never do know how a comment like that can affect someone.

To All Concerned (To All of You Who Have Commented Here):
There is no need for any one of you to be upset with me, or upset for me, or upset for Synnie - these were just "words" on a screen (as one of you mentioned) and my statement was meant to express how I am feeling about the state of affairs here from my own personal perspective, based strictly on my own personal experiences. I did not ask any single one of you to give me your approval or whether or not you would think it would change things here. I know it would not. I wrote what I was feeling at the time and that was that.
I respect each and every person on this forum, excluding one (and that came after a long time of being hassled with jibberish).
So, for Adverse, Pedro, Rev Bob, Deejie, Deb, Dali, Nechesh, T-Dogg, Xib - Thank you again for your comments and I do truly "listen" and learn from all of you. I do hope to continue to enter this place and will do what I have been doing for the past several months - I will ignore the threads/comments when it involves anything that is meant to bring down this place.
For Phens - no need for you to be ashamed of the likes of me - you have no clue as to the person I am. I refuse to defend myself to you and if you want to believe I'm like Hitler and such, so be it. Carry on.
For One FINAL Note:
PLEASE LET THIS THREAD END HERE AND NOW!
I wrote what I wrote. You don't have to like it. You can criticize it all you want, but some of what has been written to me about my post is just as degrading, derogatory as what I am being told my post was. So, if you find it necessary to read this post, and then respond to it in a good or bad way, please send me a PM to do that and we can discuss it there. Everyone keeps writing that we should end it and I agree with that. If we let this post get to page 2 or 3, it'll be long gone.

My apologies to Phens . . . after re-reading your comments, I realized that you did not compare me to the likes of Hitler, but rather Xib's posts used the names to compare the "human race" . . . well, anyway, these things happen I guess, when we're reading and writing with such fired up passion. So, for my comment to Phens about comparing me to Hitler, I apologize. But I still say that there is no reason for you (Phens) to be ashamed of me and my words - no worries, though, we have cleared that up via PM.
To all of you: I have sent a PM to those of you I could. For those of you who do not have PM enabled or have blocked me, this is what I wrote:
I just wanted to send a private message to ask that we just let the Revolving Door thread be and let it die out.
I appreciate your comments to my post, but I would rather they be sent to me via PM, so that the thread can go to the back burner.
Thank you for respecting this wish. I look forward to chatting on the moon . . . in another thread :-]
