Again, I never said that women can't or don't abuse.
Please look at what I wrote and you'll see that.
I happily now go back to not responding to Ross' posts.
Jerome - I will quote from Sam's first two posts. What a way to introduce yourself to a group of people discussing how they have been abused.
"MISSREPRESENTATION AND SLANDER IS ILLEGAL, get over it!"
"you dont need secret cameras and investgational journalists to see the truth! If you do, matthew, justice, alban and the rest...then your judgement is obviously heavily clouded, sodd going spec savers, consider getting ur eyes removed!
ps: justice your a nobody!"
Not a good way to start out, I think. I do recognize that the posts calmed way down, which was very helpful. Just to clarify, my comments about long-standing members have nothign to do with who is more "right" or who is better. It has to do with internet community etiquette (which teenagers often have not learned yet, although some have) which is that when you join a community as a new member, you take some time to read the posts, get a feel for the tone of the board, figure out whether it's serious, or joking, or a combination of both, and then introduce yourself. When a newcomer beings by being combative and insulting to many members who are already part of the community, that person is being a troll. Joining a board just to argue is also trolling. Joining to engage in meaningful debate and conversation without name-calling and slurs, as some current St J's pupils have done, is welcome.
