I would like to debate Lucy Hamilton on why she feels it is appropriate to force herself on other posters over their objections. To invade their space with unwarranted insults and remarks after being told to stay away. In society we have appropriate patterns of conduct and behavior such as: in a social setting when one party tells another person to stay away the other person should to listen and respect those wishes as that is the “right” of all individuals especially when it comes to a more private and personal means of communication . To do otherwise is aberrant behavior and over the course of several instances has all the characteristics of the follow: (1) has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements) (2) is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love (3) believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions) (4) requires excessive admiration (5) has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations (6) is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends (7) lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others (8) is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her (9) shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes To the best of my recollection out history as posters is as follows: You came on to USMB I saw that you were being called names like NAZI and killer and being ganged up on. I did not think that was fair so I defended and supported you, I did my best to make you feel welcome. Then one dark and fateful day I asked you a valid question: I requested that you explain a post you made. You seemed to consult others on the open board then made a determination that you would place me on ignore. It appears that someone told you I was “sad” you placed me on ignore. Again you made a determination that I was not “sad” and stated as much. Yesterday you once again commented about you placing me on ignore, but this time commenting on the substance of my posts as if you could read them. This morning over my objections you started to and continued to post harassing and nasty messages in my profile. You have used your ignore “powers” to abuse, follow, harangue, harass, castigate and enflame a situation where I have clearly respected your choices. Which now brings forth the issue(s) I would like to debate with you: Whether "no" should mean "no" in every context. Trampling over people’s boundaries, despite their discomfort and /or objection, undermines the idea of your own self respect, respect for the rights of others, the integrity of this message board. It is important to note that your mastery of the English language is quite remarkable. In fact, I work almost exclusively with people who have terminal degrees, as I have, and we all agree that demonstrably you possess the skill of a well educated and highly experienced English language wordsmith. Therefore please dispense with the confusion “at will” tactic that you seem to slip into and fall out like a snake that sheds his skin when asked a direct, albeit, uncomfortable question.
