Well talk about a warm welcome home! I read some of this while I was away but couldn't reply until I got back.
Wow, I just cannot believe what I'm reading. I'm so disappointed that people are allowed to do this to people here. How terrible. I have been 100% honest about EVERYTHING but I am still being attacked and ganged up on here. And in my own thread that I intended for something else. No respect at all and derailing members' threads and trying to ruin good people's reputations! I just can't understand it for the life of me. I think people treat people differently online than they ever would in person. If we were all sitting in a group talking about these things in person, I doubt I would get the same disrespect that I have here in the posts. The internet enables bullies to tear other people down. Kids have even committed suicide from cyber bullying and ganging up. Minimize and explain it all you want but I know the difference.
Just because my life is different than other people's and because I made some general comments about some wives getting off easy, I am being ostracized. It's pathetic and sad is what it is and I really hope that no other new member EVER has to experience this kind of shabby treatment or be the target of a bunch of gossip and lies here again. I came here in total peace and I meant no harm whatsoever to anyone. I even apologized, trying to be the bigger person, even though I knew I didn't really do anything wrong...but my apology wasn't even acknowledged and now I'm just getting more of the same, and worse. I know it won't end here either.
There is something very wrong when judging other members for their way of life is frowned upon but ganging up on, ruining peoples' reputations, and publically trashing a new member, isn't.
You guys all got what you wanted and now you can feel all warm and fuzzy
inside that you've succeeded in alienating me and finally running me off of the site for good. It's scary enough as it is for a new member to post, but to be ganged up on by intolerant and mean haters, makes it absolutely impossible. I'm only one person. I can't believe that JA would allow this to go on and that she doesn't see how destructive it really is. It's utterly shocking, I have a university degree and I know this is not the right way to treat people. Even speaking about them when they're not even present! I also have a diploma in Human Relations and this is totally unhealthy and dysfunctional behavior.
I've been nothing but sincere with you all. I was looking for a friend, and instead I found mean enemies who bullied and ganged up on me until I had no choice but to leave. I don't deserve it and I'm sorry I never got a fair chance here. I tried my very best but I've obviously been unsuccessful and this is never going to stop. I don't want to keep this going and let it esculate any further than it has already. It's very hurtful and upsetting to me.
I really won't be back, so please don't address me anymore. I just can't read anymore mean posts. I'm really sad and disappointed though and just wanted you all to know it. JA, please don't let this ever happen to another new person again. It's a real injustice and no truly good site would ever support or condone it.
Please just delete my account. Thanks.
Goodbye and take care,
