There are cliques and bullies all over the internet and in the world today.
Please do not "assume" that I am implying anything I say, if you do not understand it, ask me.
I know you are offended because a friend of yours posted a blog about me, but always remember, that the only two people who know the WHOLE story are the two involved. It takes two to tango. When I entered chat with a friend the other day whose comment was "Jessy we were just talking about chat and here I am".
You "ASSUMED" that I was telling her some gossip and you said "Don't believe any gossip". That couldn't be further from the truth. We were having a nice chat about whether we preferred forums or chat and she did all the talking about it, I just replied to it. She is new here and hasn't said one single thing about anyone to me. I will send you copies of her letters to me, so you will realize you are in the wrong assuming we were gossiping or telling tales.
With all due respect Graham, you being a moderator here, I believe you should not be taking sides like you did in your friend's blog..... and you did just that in a blog of someone who was purposely running me down and making it quite clear who she was talking about. What about that? Is she in the right saying all those ridiculous thing, and not once taking any responsibility for what she did and said. She threatened me and I can prove it.
Now I don't care who your friends are, in your position, you should be putting "principles before personalities". Women and men, especially seniors have cat fights on ALL forums and sites like this on the internet. Some leave because of them. I stay whether they like me here or not.
This clique thread is negative and positive, I expect to receive some views on this growing problem in the cyberworld. If you think there are no cliques in cyber, that is your perogative, I think there are. You are going by ONE dictionary definition.
You said : "if this is the case then It is probably just a group of like-minded people who do not offend others.". Unless you are reading the private messages and emails, there is no way you can know if they are offending others or not. I reported once to an offense, and because you like the person, nothing was done about it. I don't report anymore. I have FEELINGS, I might be getting offended by comments like "Mother Superior", or "The Saint" or "The Grouch"......you would feel that is just fine to say that to me, because you like the person saying it, without caring about my feelings at all.
The "little problem" that has happened here, is only because I insulted ONE person (a member of the clique). I didn't even mean to insult her and I APOLOGIZED. It was blown right out of proportion, and the clique members jumped me and threatened me. I fought back. End of story. Now they are all gossiping and pitting others. If you don't believe that, I will send you a letter where a member told me they pitted that person against me, long before this mishap.
I remember a letter you send to me. It was really nice and I thought you meant it. I remember another one where you commended me for sticking up for myself..............but now, you have decided to "take sides" because you like those who dislike me. I am really sorry to realize that you could be swayed so easily.
