Well, I did ask you to clarify what you meant but you didn't want to explain it

Just because we cant get along shouldnt stop you explaining to a wider audience

I chose not to respond because past messages from you have been confrontational. My reasoning for the message is quite simple. I for one did not agree that we should have a gay only page on this site, but now that we have it, perhaps we should make good use of it. It's clear that so far it has been neglected. The term 'marginalised' was used in reference to a post made by a member who kind of suggested that gay stories should be shifted to another separate page. As if 'right thinking people' and the so called 'moral majority' should be protected from such outrage. And if memory serves you responded well to that point.

Thanks for the response and the clarification

Like you, I don’t believe there should be a sub section for Gay members, the forum is supposed to be about rainwear not sexuality, I don’t find it difficult to avoid any subjects I dont like

I don’t know whether it was suggested by a straight or gay member but the lack of posts would indicate there is very little interest in it

As for the stories, I think all stories stay in the same section

I don’t need to be protected from gay stories, I have no interest in gay stories and find them easily avoided, just like other subjects that I’m not interested in

Being really honest I have very little interest in badly written third-rate porn whether it’s gay, straight or Martian

Maybe I lack imagination but just because someone throws the word mackintosh or raincoat into the mix makes no difference to me, they probably write the same trash and throw in the word cardigan on the relevant forum

I used a conciliatory tone with you in my message, but as I suspected, you were not really interested in an explanation, you wanted to continue in your own aggressive way. Your final sentence alludes to a past "crossing of swards", as you put it, we had some time ago, in which you joined in on the bullying I was subjected to, for raising an inane issue on semantics. You published a private message I posted, in order to win favour with the invigilator, you then reported me, resulting in a 48 hour ban.
As I raised the issue of the gay page, in an attempt at getting some form of support, you took your chance to attack me again, under the pretence of an 'explanation'. Can I ask you, where in all this have I sought to ridicule you, in the manner you have chosen to ridicule me?

WOW, I thought I was supporting what you said, where have I ridiculed you?

you wanted to continue in your own aggressive way

Where do you read that?

If you mean the message below, then I posted that not "in order to win favour with the invigilator" (Im sure Paul & Mason are sick of me) but to show other members what a nasty piece of work you really are. If you got a ban then they obviously thought you deserved it

Yes that's the one. And, as well you know, I was responding to the stream of aggression that I'd received from you. In a recent post you mention 'third rate porn' and 'trash'. How would you know this, if you have no interest in gay issues. If you were aiming this at me, I defy you to find anything 'trashy' or 'third rate', that would appear unseemly on here.What was the purpose of this? It had no baring on the conversation we were having.

You mention that you have no interest in gay stories, and that they are easily avoided. This is true, but why on earth were you visiting the gay page anyway. Was it just to pick a fight with me? Why did you feel the need to ask for an explanation in matters that don't concern you? I noticed too, that you joined in on another attack on my language and culture. There seems to be a pattern forming here.

I dare say that you will be running again to make a formal complaint, if it hasn't already been noted. That is a matter for you and your own self-esteem. I believe I was right in the first instance, by electing not to engage with you.

“Yes that's the one. And, as well you know, I was responding to the stream of aggression that I'd received from you”

Well I’ve posted your nasty little PM so it’s only fair you post the evidence of this “stream of aggression” you talk about

“In a recent post you mention 'third rate porn' and 'trash'. How would you know this, if you have no interest in gay issues.”

It isn’t only about gay issues, sorry to the people who take the time to write the stories but last time I visited the stories section most of the stories whether gay, straight or otherwise were, IMO, third rate porn and trash. I prefer visual representation to the written word and reality to fantasy

“If you were aiming this at me, I defy you to find anything 'trashy' or 'third rate', that would appear unseemly on here”

To paraphrase the popular beat combo McFly ‘It’s NOT all about you’

“What was the purpose of this? It had no baring on the conversation we were having”

I was trying to say, but obviously failed, that I thought all the stories should be kept in one section but even then ANY story wouldn’t get much interest from me

“You mention that you have no interest in gay stories, and that they are easily avoided. This is true, but why on earth were you visiting the gay page anyway”

As far as I’m aware the gay sub section wasn’t set up just for stories. Just because I don’t like stories doesn’t mean there won’t be other rainwear related items of interest to me in the gay section. I try to keep an open mind

“Was it just to pick a fight with me?”

Oh dear, you really need to see someone about your paranoia

“Why did you feel the need to ask for an explanation in matters that don't concern you?”

Why wouldn’t it concern me, it’s a post on a forum that I’m interested in and your original post was unclear

“I noticed too, that you joined in on another attack on my language and culture.”

Please provide evidence of this ‘attack’

“There seems to be a pattern forming here.”

In an earlier post you mentioned bullying it looks like Regenhoedje was right always the victim aren’t you?

“I dare say that you will be running again to make a formal complaint, if it hasn't already been noted.”

What would be the point as it would just give you something else to whinge about and it seems your last ban had no effect on you

“That is a matter for you and your own self-esteem.”

Take a look at the PM you sent and try to re-evaluate your own self-esteem, ask yourself why you felt the need to send your nasty little message by PM rather on the open forum

“I believe I was right in the first instance, by electing not to engage with you.”

Of course, you believe you were right, you always seem to believe you’re right

I kind of know what you mean but to me, this section has always felt a little... I dunno, unnecessary. Maybe that's because, for me, my sexual/erotic interests are defined much more by fetish than anything else.

I don't want to seem ungrateful for this section - it was clearly set up in response to someone asking for it - but in terms of how I use this forum, it's a little bit peripheral. I like reading about men and raingear but I don't particularly care whether those men are straight, gay or whatever so I tend to spend most time in Stories and Rainwear Discussions.
