i am currently very disgusted by some people's actions on livejournal. no, not just one person. no, not just one group. it's like "we're way too good of people to be bitches IRL, so we're going to do this online. becuase it isn't really real online, in print, in written word that can be saved, documented, recorded, copied, altered, re-read, and then duplicated over 20,000 times. this hurts less than chalkind up to emotion and spur of the moment." this also allows people to say they were mis-understood, or joking, when you checked, and no they weren't. 'cause they really did remove so and so from their friends list. ok, now i'm getting specific. but so have the rest of you. and no, it's not just that group. it's half of the livejournal community. voyers who thrive off of middle school soap opera name slining drama. and yes, i find it amusing from time to time, and yes, i bitch about people on my livejournal too, but nothing i wouldn't say to their face, and i rarely, if ever, take anything back that i post on my journal. i post it on my journal so i am held accountable for what i say, what i'm feeling, and to try and deminish my own hypocracy. yes i've been calling a few people hypocrites in the last few days, and yes, this could be the pot calling the kettle black. i know that. fuck you.

and most of these people i like being around IRL. this is just bullshit of the most enormouse magnitude, and none of this would be going on if livejournal (or dead journal or u journal or anything like it) specific didn't exist. you wouldn't be doing this in e-mails, with everyone watching, you wouldn't be doing this on aim, in chat rooms, in private chat rooms for this group of friends, and you sure as hell wouldn't be doing it on a "real" web page.

and i am going to sit here, and still read it, and still comment, and still rant, because i find it facinating how low people can be to people they use to care about, and maybe still claim to do, and now slash to further their relationships with other people or to boost their own faltering self esteem. becuase all of you are very insecure people. your religion helps boost your own sense of self worth. and there is nothing wrong with that, except you use to critisize people i use to be much closer with for the same thing. you are just as dillusional as they were. and think your not dillusional, fine i agree, but then neither were they. different ways of looking at the elephant, and the more i see yours, the more i miss thiers. there atleast use to be an order to this bullshit. yes, you may talk to god, but honey, that doesn't make you god, or even nessisarily what you are doing right.


ok, here comes the flame. i dare you.



oh and one more addition, before i forget. some of our friends are having real problems, real things in their lives sucking. and i'm not meaning me and having my computer stolen, i mean things that matter. some people, have real pain, and honestly, i'm putting most of my energy and attention towards that, when i can.


oh, also, to those who expressed concern for me and what's going on, thank you, but really, i'm fine. but unfortunately, others i care about are not.

Bleh. I know this was directed at me. I wasn't meaning to be crappy to Katie.

I suck.

like i said in this post, this is directed not at one person specifially. i think most of the livejournal community could use to hear this.

no flame.

to clarify, yes, I did remove Nick from my LJ friends list. I wasn't joking about that nor saying anything about being misunderstood in regards to that--I think what was misunderstood is being misunderstood, as I was referring instead to my friend Jo who wrote a far worse post in her own journal. In other words, I wasn't complaining strictly about your posts or Nick's--a very good friend of mine also ticked me off. I'm happy to say, however, that we've talked it over and we're fine. So... please don't assume Nick was the only target of my rant, cause he so was not. Trust me.

Thing is, I'm just very tired of the exhibitionism that goes on via lj--in the culture I was raised in, it's considered to be rude to flaunt your sex life in public--and decided to take the advice of someone and just remove the offenders altogether rather than get my panties wadded up into a bunch over it.

also, a side note: I did put him back on, along with Jo. Yes, and after I did so, I satirized every sex-detailed post ever made in a post to my lj that I did yesterday. It was damned funny, and I don't regret a bit of it. If you want to put your sex life for public display, kudos to you, but it's my right to not want to read it, and people should expect reactions from others, both good and bad.

in regards to whole relationship fight thing involving nameless parties--I am NOT involved. I am so beyond not involved that it's not even funny. to quote Dave, consider me in Switzerland. And I am dead serious, and that is my only and last comment in regards to that situation.

Katie, I did not know that your computer was stolen. I'm extremely sorry. *HUG*

sorry, I dunno why I misread your post as having said that Katie's computer was stolen. I need more caffeine.

I'm still sorry about that, Kris. *hug*

Re: no flame.

just to remind everyone... i said that this post wasn't just about one person. yes there were specifics, but this is a problem at large.

Re: no flame.

yes, I know. and it is a problem.

but... wouldn't it help to break the cycle to contact those individually yourself whom you see as being a problem, or potentially a problem?

Re: no flame.

i dunno? why don't you ask the people who started it why they haven't?

Re: no flame.

I don't know who started what, nor am I at a position to be able to determine such.

But I was asking *you* that question, due to your post. You are clearly upset with certain people and their behavior, and maybe it would help to actually talk to them.

Re: no flame.

maybe it would help for them to acctually be held accountable for their actions.

Re: no flame.

I think it would help more if actual communication transpired between the two parties in question, versus throwing around blame.

i think this was said by someone else in this comments block, but I'll repeat it anyway.

There's something to be said for the benefits of confrontation when addressing a problem. Face-to-face contact both helps get a point across as well as solve the problem and avoid other people feelings as though they have transgressed when in fact they've done nothing wrong. I say this especially because I just had to have a confrontation with someone last night and things worked out well.

Just a thought.

yes love, this is true. but there is also something to be said for being publically accountable for what people say, which is what this is hopefully forcing people to do. i'm not going to get into the entire back story on a comment on livejournal, but i think some of that is nessisary here.

Kris, I am very hurt by the things you said about my religion and I would appreciate it if we could talk about this in person.

sure, we can talk, in person, about your religion if you want. however, that will have to wait a week and a half, as you well know

That's fine, just give me a call once its all over and you've had a chance to rest up. I don't understand why you had to target me in your message, though, when I'm not even involved in this conflict.

For the record, I've never objected to your old friends on the account they were delusional, but rather that they were immoral. I don't believe its right to kill anything for one's own pleasure, be it man, animal, disincarnate astral entity, or god.

No one is Immortal, and I would like to think I'm most likley not Delusional, if I can pass the Psyc exam for Boston Police, I'm sure as hell not Delusional.

eh, I know this is going to go to Frommy boy over here, but Kris if you read this. How are ya.

Immoral and moral, good and bad, right and wrong, saintly and evil... none of these things actually exist you do realise. It's all public relations for the worlds of religion. The fact that you by into it makes you the delusional one.
