I had joined a debate new group(because if you have not figured out I have no problem stating my opinion by now, you never will... still working on settling on a set group of groups).
I saw name-calling and mean things being said earlier in the group. When I commented, they fixated on this one part of my post(because sometimes the only way I can explain my posts is to use life experiences... actually thats pretty much my main way of explaining), and kept at it. I kept telling them, my life's experiences weren't up for debate, and after quite awhile of them not leaving it alone, I finally just "unleashed" but contrary to earlier posts, made a bleak attempt to stay within THUMPS.
THE MOD had a "problem" with me, where she had allowed them to name call others(and I got called something once or twice too earlier on), but had a problem with me defending myself. She put up a mod warning and sent me a message and kept saying they weren't harassing me, and the only one doing anything wrong was me.
Long story short. I left the group. I don't want to be in a group I am discriminated against, though it was never clear why).
Now this is me venting, about how this just reminds me of some experiences in school as a kid. Every kid ever bullied around curtain teachers, always got in trouble for responding, or defending.
so... I guess this is just my bitchy bitch vent. I feel better already. ^.^
