    Here's the thing: We are all entitled to voice our opinions. But making passive-aggressive remarks when you don't agree with someone else's views and opinions is out of line.

    There is a definite difference between being snarky, sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek, and being rude. Most of us can be snarky and sarcastic with each other because we can tell when that is the intention. But to be mean and then hide behind, "oh I was being sarcastic, some people just don't get it," is again, out of line.
    Oh thats the internet for you these days, people dont know how to have debates or conversations anymore, everyones so convinced of their sides 'rightness' that they automatically dismiss everything else and just react with subtle our outright hostility to those who dont share their 'hivemind'

    Its sad

    On another note Blizzard needs to stop making fun games, my soul can not be consumed anymore than it is already by them

    Re: RCMC #130: Amok is a city in Indonesia (or possibly Malaysia?)

    When I read posts like this from Kim, and just recently from Lady N, it makes me weep inside. I have been a part of the RCMC for a very long time. I feel exactly the way that she does about both the RCMC, and MiceChat as well. I have been no angel all these years, and I have tried to behave myself most of the time. However, I do think that each and every one of us needs to look inside of ourselves, and ask why are we here.

    The mission statement posted in the first post of this thread says it all. If you can't truly abide by that, then please post elsewhere.

    As much as we have always welcomed everyone into this thread, for some reason it just doesn't work for everyone.

    I only speak for myself, of course, but if this kind of hostility existed in my family at home, I would take the exact same action.

    Re: RCMC #130: Amok is a city in Indonesia (or possibly Malaysia?)

    I am going to try and word this very carefully because I want my meaning clear.
    My post was only meant to serve as what I have observed with the past few threads. I know that a lot of times, things are taken out of context and things that were meant as sarcasm or jokes are misconstrued. However, sometimes, things are posted that are meant to be mean, and just because someone says, hey, I was joking, doesn't take the sting away.
    In regards to things that are posted that are meant as a joke: sometimes some people don't understand sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek dialogue. Like my son. So, in that regard, continuing to post in that manner to someone who does not get the joke is mean. Does that make sense? The person who continues to post in that manner is in the wrong. Posting that hey, some people just don't get it, is insensitive. Because, yes, some people just don't get it.
    The whole point of the RCMC is inclusion and belonging. I am saddened that so many members are feeling left out. It all comes down to kindness and respect.

    I am not one of the original members. I came in later. But I was welcommed with open arms. And I have seen all who have come since me also welcommed with open arms. This truly is a special place. I believe that everyone who wishes to come and join in are welcome. And it will continue that way.

    Normally, I am a soft spoken person, and I avoid conflict. Then someone/something happens that really irks me and I snap.

    You have witnessed that again today.

    Ahh...at one point I was SOOO tempted to start up that game...but I really just don't have time. As of now, about a month of my WoW subscription is going to waste because I can't find time to sit down and play!

    I think that when something is worthwhile, it is worth protecting and standing up for.

    That is what Pengy is for...but I think she tires of it sometimes. Poor Pengy. How much I admire her patience and tranquility.

    There's a reason why we have existed this long.
