  • Could someone please have a look at the Ukraine thread. A poster JVBulman has posted some comments with I find grossly offensive. I don’t think I’m being a cry baby and I don’t want to appear to be restricting personal opinion but I think that person has overstepped the mark in relation to their opinion. I can accept PMs if required. I have never done this before but I do not want hassle by responding to his comments in a ‘forceful’ way because I’m at a polar opposite to them.

    Edits - because I’m so annoyed, I’ve had to edit this a few times

  • i don’t agree with most of what he’s saying and can see why some of the delivery has ‘pressed your buttons’ but what exactly do you expect a mod to do apart from telling you to go and look at a thread about cats?
    you are annoyed, that’s part of being a grown up, either counter his opinion or go and do something relaxing.

  • I don’t like to let things lie. Which gets me in trouble.
    Thanks for the input.
    I may return with some abusive text which worries me.

  • poster JVBulman has posted some comments with I find grossly offensive

    Which ones? Out of curiosity, I looked at them and he seemed to be making an arguable, although partial, point which most reasonable people would have considered, and in terms which fall easily within the bounds of taste and decency which one might consider to be LFGSS "community standards"

  • Maybe I’m a bit sensitive to seeing children and non-combatants killed in an invasion which, I believe, is uncalled for. I understand the strategic reasons Russia invaded, sea port etc but I cannot understand anyone justifying the senseless murder of children.
    In closing, fuck your opinion - when someone invades your country get your trainers on and start running. Cunt!

  • I cannot understand anyone justifying the senseless murder of children.

    Who's doing that? Not me, not Bulman. Yes, his whataboutism can make him come across as an apologist for Putinism if you're minded to take it that way, but his questions are valid even if his conclusions are simplistic.

    I'm not going to get involved in the thread or any further discussion, I stand on my record with respect to Ukraine, which goes back to the Euromaidan days.

    ETA: Also, dry your eyes mate and read what Bulman actually wrote, because your response to him shows that, blinded by anger, you read the opposite meaning to the words he used.

  • Could me my mistake but I’ve heard similar rubbish from an apologist ‘friend’ over the past few weeks.
    Justify the unjustifiable.

  • I have re-read his comments and you are wrong. He justifies the invasion by saying the USA does the same so Russia is within it’s right to do the same. This is playground logic and I am not aware of the USA invading another country for the purposes of access to a sea port in recent years.
    I am very annoyed by this - as you may have gathered, hence the post here. I respect people’s opinions but only to a point.
    A line must be drawn at some point in any divisive discussion and, in my opinion, that guy overstepped that line. I am really annoyed by his public attitude and others willingness to accept his point of view. I mention my ‘friend’ who is of a similar of not exact opinion; he now has told me that the Holocaust didn’t happen and the word ‘Holocaust’ was not a word until the 1970’s when it was resurrected from some ancient language. Again, he could be right but I will choose to disagree with him because I have principles. Mental illness is all around us. Trying to find middle ground with diametrically opposed views is almost impossible and I am not the person to try - the invasion is wrong, the murder of innocents is wrong, the devastation to towns and cities is wrong. We live in a civilised society - am I wrong again? Time to start building a bunker and becoming a survivalist like my ‘friend’????

  • There’s no justification in his posts, you seem to be totally misreading them (and then overreacting).

    Asking why one war/imperial power is presented as uniquely monsterous when another has done similar things, is not justifying anything. It’s not even providing the author’s personal viewpoint on the morality of each situation!

  • Can this chat be moved to some other thread please.

    @Velocio is this ok? Doesn't look like it.

  • new user, two threads, both in the wrong place

  • Is there a way to improve the ignore function, so you don't even see the user name on replies or thread updates? I only have one user on ignore, but I do really want to ignore them.

  • I hate it when people keep replying to @a**y too

  • 😂

  • I have uBlock filters for this:­em-in-reply-to:has-text(revenant.))­l-recent:has-text(revenant.))

    First one hides replies to in a thread, the second hides a thread if the last reply is by the user in question. A bit crude but in the worst case you might miss a thread every once in a while.
