    There are no "errors" being made here though, good boy: said poster is Tina. I know it, you know it, and (s)he knows it. Soon, the moderators will know it.

    And I agree that clinging on to the past can be harmful, but it can also be harmful when a poster takes his or her aggressive behavior off of the internet forum. You don't know the half of it.

    I won't rest until this newest incarnation of Tina is banned.

    Dedans, for all your wit and spirit, you don't know half of what goes on here. So just walk away, I beg of you..

    If it's her, I hope she stays. I don't think I'm alone when I say that if given a choice between Chopin or Tina staying, I vote for Tina...

    Don’t know what to tell you. You are right, Chopin – I may not know a fraction of the emotional trauma you have endured over the course of your relationship with Tina, but I do know this much. Your judgment is turbidised and you are not thinking rationally. Whether or not there is substance to your suspicions, lashing out at strangers is not the means to successful self-healing – people may start to perceive your actions as misplaced, ill-conceived attempts at vigilante-style justice. I call on you to unite in a continued effort to sustain this unique platform of civil and diverse knowledge exchange and do our part to enable further unimpeded process of experience sharing.

    "Turbidised." I admit to looking that one up. Turbid is the adjective form, and what you mean, no?

    Anyways, I like your analysis, but let me clarify a few things for you: Said poster may have had my e-mail flooded with hundreds (or maybe even thousands) of SPAM e-mails forcing me to change it; said poster may have exhibited troubling behavior, such as asking about my personal information over and over again; said poster may have ignored my family's requests to be left alone after I privately told her I no longer wished to speak to her; said poster may have made false claims about me on the Boards; said poster may have created an uncomfortable posting environment on the Boards, essentially having a chilling effect on these Boards; said poster may have made uncomfortable romantic innuendos on the Boards; said poster may still be launching passive- aggressive personal attacks on me under the now weekly new names.

    No, I am justified in fighting against this person. I mean, come one, Tina comes back and is immediately in my Graf thread criticizing me personally. When did she offer anything about tennis? Most of her posts are about just engaging people with nonsense, and talking about dating "younger men" (me), in between taking shots at me and my "OCD" or whatever illness she diagnoses me as having. I'm sick of it and I'm not going to stand for this person on the Boards.

    Vigilante-style justice? I like that...and, to be honest, maybe we need a little more of that in today's world. When Obama caves in and agrees to extending tax cuts for the millionaires and billionaires, and all the Republicans say, "Oh, we didn't actually care about the debt, as long as those millionaires who back us get their their tax cuts," and the only one who is left making any sense is Bernie Sanders, and the black caucus who had the courage and political capital (or lack thereof) to support him, I say yeah, we need a Dark Knight.

    "To the last I grapple with thee."

    Best,
    Chopin

    Reality check: you showed up in my Graf thread and started taking shots at me! You started this Tina, not I, and you've continued it, not I. The difference is that you operate in a passive-aggressive manner, a manner that's fitting of someone who is on her fourth freaking account! I'm adult enough to call you on it and confront you in the open.

    And for anyone doubting this isn't Tina, answer me the following questions:

    1) What other explanation is there for "four different posters," Tina, W.T., H20 and Soften all gravitating towards SoBad, heycal, me and a few others, speaking to them as if they're old friends or enemies? I mean softy here just arrived, but she already knows Sobad is a "great person." Wow!

    2) If this genuinely was a different person, don't you think they'd react a little differently to my posts accusing them of being Tina? Wouldn't they be really, really confused?

    3) Does any other poster say "take cares?" The grammar gives here away...

    4) Is it a coincidence that all four of these posters (and three were banned for alternate accounts, surprise, surprise!) gravitate towards these more lighthearted, trivial threads, comment on pictures, and talk about dating younger men?

    5) Do all four of these posters really have doctorates? Wow.

    Please don't post in boldface.

    Please also don't go off-topic on this thread and start conversations. There is a chat facility available for that.

    Then pray tell what exactly went on here? Generally speaking, I don't like to see people getting banned. Now, if there was something deeper and darker in play here such as Tina breaching your privacy and "outing" your identity then I would understand your discontent; I was only taking a general 'anti-ban' stance. Regards.

    I don't know this bird you speak of, or much about birds in general, but it's my understanding that birds rely a lot on their wings to help them fly. I think planes do the same thing.

    This particular bird is not an ordinary bird-reseved, intelligent, and lighthearted type of bird. It seeks for a great opportunity to success in life at the same time overcome its shyness to meet needs of the melting pot. It is a mirgant bird. Any thoughts?




    Good one and excellent response!!

    I'm afraid beyond guessing that this bird relies on its wings a great deal in order to fly, I don't have a lot of insights on this issue. I guess I didn't study birds as much as I should have in school.

    Hey, Be positive, Heycal. I didn't study birds a lot as well in life. It's just a hypothetical scenario because I do bird watching sometimes. I love discussing things with people.

    Yeah, my discontent centers around privacy concerns and the lies being spread about me. I understand your stance though, and wish you well.

    I'm sorry. I meant to post that in the Too Much information thread.

    What do I think about the CDB?

    Did it migrate from another planet?

    It migrates from country to country. It's a female bird. Any thoughts?

    I believe I just posted my thoughts.

    I will refrain from any further discussion regarding the CDB in this thread. I do not wish to incur the (justified) admonishment of Sentinel.

    This is a great example of the type of low-brow programming that can't crack BBC mainline but facilitates the existence of BBC Two.

    Very nice find. :lol:

    I am no Freud and i don't believe in his psycho-sexual buckwash. From the little i know of life, a pen or pencil tucked under the lower lip signifies that you are in thought.

    She's clearly paying attention to the guy behind.

    Simplest answer.

    I don't think we need Freud to tell us that the lips are an organ of pleasure and that stimulating them is enjoyable.

    Never found 'em enjoyable. I just scratched my lip, nothing happened.

    Come on, dude, she's placing the pencil or pen BELOW her lower lip, please stop sexualizing something ordinary.

    Sorry, dude, but when I touch my own lips they quiver with a delicious sensuality that is similar to the feeling I get from the girl who massages my head before a haircut.

    I am tired after traveling to Copenhagen and Moscow, and then spending Chistmas Eve and Christmas morning in New York. A friend sent me this image of Maria Sharapova catching a bus on the Golden Gate Bridge:

    I never pay for a haircut. I cut my hair by myself. People can't believe how good the result is. I use an electric hair trimmer.

    Anybody else do the same thing? :)

    Chopin's Revenge!

    Looks like Crystal Diamond Bird Airlines has been grounded. Apparently due to some unsanitary high-altitude flushing over Flushing.

    I guess this opens Crystal Diamond Bird watching reason. $20 pretend TT dollars to the first one to sight the CDB.

    You are such a cheap guy! I get an 800 dollar haircut from a celebrity hairdresser. I take a trans-Atlantic flight to get my haircut. I stay at the Hilton for the day, booking the entire floor for security purposes.

    From your point of view. You're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on your own point of view.

    When I first met Tina, I was amazed with how forthright she was, and I thought I could accept her friendship in earnest. I was wrong. She's more machine now than Talk Tennis poster.
