Don't Feed the Trolls
Personally, all the raw people that I’ve met have been very friendly and far from stuck up. In fact, they are probably some of the most friendly people I’ve ever met. How can you not be friendly when it comes to saving the animals? After all, what could be more important and worthwhile than making sure that no animals had to die because of your selfish cravings for flesh? I’m so glad to not be a meat eater anymore, it’s just so uncivilized and cruel. People who eat meat are the true trolls out there, and they need to wake up and smell the Double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Nonfat Decaf Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino Extra Hot With Foam Whipped Cream Upside Down Double Blended, One Sweet’N Low and One Nutrasweet, and Ice.
NoneMoreRaw, I hope that cream is made from soya bean!
Oh thank you so much Kendra! If you find you think they need tweaking don’t hesitate to tell me, I really enjoy constructive criticism. I will have to keep an eye out for your testimony! I just got through talking (well, more like back and forthing on opinions lol, he disagrees sometimes, he just needs to learn he’s wrong) with my hubby about how the better you care for your body, the better it will treat you. I love cooking and it took me a while to appreciate un-cooking, but now, I am just so in love with my food again. You are writing a BOOK! OMG, how far along are you????
Harmonylia,I’ve written about 10 chapters now, but some are incomplete and I’m going to have to condense/combine some of them. Writing is so good for the soul. So glad it helps us not to recognize nonsense..get my drift. But I also do health lectures at my church and am looking to become a certified Health Minister because so many people need to hear this message that “You Don’t Have to Be Sick!!!” Oooh, I think I’ll say that again…”You Don’t Have to Be Sick!!!” So many people accept their infirmities as something that they think they just have to live with without knowing that dietary changes can make a drastic difference. For me, it took, faith, obedience, and nutrition to overcome, and I can’t relax yet, because there’s yet more work to be done. Harmonylia, you should get one of those sites too, then we could chat there ;-) Or it doesn’t really matter, I’m just as comfortable as a bumble bee right here (where did that come from, I think I just made that up LOL!)
Sock-puppet city, here:-)
You see that too? You are so conscientious! Observant! That’s the word I want to use. sock puppet city…That’s a good word for it/way to describe it.
I’ve noticed that they usually post together on the same thread and banter back and forth….
sock puppet city, good one!
it just seems like so much work to me… sign in one, sign out, sign in, sign out, sign in… i just don’t understand the point of wasting all that time!
its like sock puppets… but less convenient. and way less fun. because i love sock puppets.
Beetboy keeps following me around no matter where I post or what I post about. Not much I can do about that, sorry.
Someone might need a lesson in the birds and the bees..
I really like this website. I like the support, motivation, openess, community spirit and sense of friendship that comes across from and between people.
I am saddened by the animosity and general p+ss taking that is coming across from some.
Go on then, feel free, beat me up for saying it or take the p+ss again if you like.
There’s enough hate and sarcasm in the world people. Can we keep it off gone raw?
I’m sorry to have been trying too hard to fit in around here. Obviously eating raw for any extended period of time seems to make some members around here think they belong high up on their pedestals…..stools (more like it)
I have asked nothing but inquisitive questions and interacted politely and honestly on this forum and are getting labelled as a sock puppet. I think you all need to look long and hard at yourself because even an overweight loser like myself can see through your own insecurities that make you pick on the less fortunate.
You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.
As for NoneMoreRaw…......Sorry for just wanting to learn and better myself from your (what I thought was sincerity) supposed knowledge on going raw. I think your question about eating the vegetables that are grown in your own faeces was a stupid one now that was trying to draw attention to yourself. Beetboy and NoneRoreMaw = friends no more!
And as for EatMeRaw…you are definitely a trollop/troll…..My mum would be disgusted to hear or read what you said. You have said nothing constructive around here, why don’t you and Joyce and Kesendrahasrabies go eat a carrot.
I’m just amazed the mods haven’t just banned them and called it a day yet.
OK Branwyn, tell me why I should be banned?
Oh they’ll ban them very soon. And any others who appear.
Branwyn32, I’m surprised as well..maybe they have just decided they would like to put their time into something more constructive and believe we will perhaps figure things out ourselves.
QUOTING mamamilk…BEGIN QUOTE: “Harmonylia said it well on another thread: â€œone and the same or two in a crewâ€ Maybe itâ€™s really three in a tree? actually, though initially entertaining itâ€™s a bore now.” END OF QUOTE.
sighhhh…I think it’s more like four on the shore…it really is quite boring now, and I hope that I’m not fanning or feeding the fire by leaving this little comment.
Greenghost was right about ignoring them. The sad thing is that newbies just coming in and reading the posts may not be aware of what’s going on. I want newbies to feel just as comfortable as I did when I got on board and recognize nonsense when they see it, because people have a tendency to change their name and re-enter the website as a different person. Then they try to disguise themselves by leaving posts that seem very neutral, helpful, or supportive. They even try to evoke pity for themselves. But eventually the Boogieman comes out in one form or another.
I donâ€™t think that we have to go around feeling paranoid of being ourselves on this website. Iâ€™m going to post a few words of advice that I think may help, but first Iâ€™d like to sayâ€¦
I am not “the expert”, nor do I think that I am perfect. I am known to be a feisty, touchy person myself at times, but am working on my personality. This is not my time to shine, nor do I have all things in life figured out. I don’t always have to have the last word either, (I just like to respond back to people who are nice and have something intelligent/ good to say). But if I may add a few more suggestions to what has already been said….my only reason for doing so is because I love this site, and would not want there to be a breakdown in communication amongst each other. So here it goes:
GOLDEN RULE: DO NO HARM!
(this is not the official Golden Rule of course, which says do unto others as you would have others do unto you. but I have found that some do not know how to love themselves, let alone, treat others properly. This is the reason for rephrasing).
1. For anyone reading a post that seems as though a person is hurling malicious or even subtlety malicious remarks to stir up emotions and cause bickering, the best thing to do is to not respond back to the person at all, not even in a round about way, nor in a joking way as Greenghost suggested. Remember, DO NO HARM!
2. Making “snide remarks” i. e. making rude remarks to other people which are really remarks targeted for a particular person is still adding fuel to fire, fanning the flames, feeding the troll…whatever you like to call it. Remember, DO NO HARM!
3. Don’t let what went on over the past several days in regards to these posts stop you from asking your questions no matter how â€œdumbâ€ you may think they are. If you are asking sincerely, and really want an answer, then the truth will show and you will most likely get a sincere answer to your questions. Your questions may help someone else who was afraid to ask. Anyone who is sincere about answering your question will remember to DO NO HARM!
4. Don’t be afraid to state your opinion even if it is contrary to popular opinion. If we don’t stand for something we will fall for anything and I think that as adults, we can have intellectual debates that raise awareness while still being able to agree to disagree. Although it’s quite impossible to NEVER offend anyone in life, we can keep our intentions pure. A person can stand firmly and state their opinion without belittling others and hurling insults. Just keep in mind to DO NO HARM! and you will be just fine.
Trolls canâ€™t harm us, or cause havoc amongst us unless we let them. Remember to DO NO HARM! Now, Iâ€™m taking donations for anyone whoâ€™d like to contribute to my peace fundâ€¦.LOL! Iâ€™m just joking.
What harm have I done?
Nicely put. KWR
I 100% agree with the point of this thread.
However, on that note, am not going to provide anymore ‘food’ and certainly wont comment on last post.
Love to the genuines.
I just read what you said Winona and cir-1976 :
) I’m outta here too…bye now! :)
Oh, you gotta just laugh. Youth…one day when the beer wears off and their belly rolls over their pants and their face looks like leather, they won’t be laughing with us anymore.
If you are talking about me again kendra, I’m still here. I don’t really understand this definition of a troll you keep on about but maybe you need to be just a little more appreciative of the people who come here to better their lifestyle and improve their health. That is all I am trying to do. So please do as Ray suggested. Perhaps you may be one of these trolls you are talking about….I really don’t know. Please , if you don’t want to help me then I won’t ask for your help.
LOL Thatâ€™s Hilarious!
I really think everybody should just drop this thread now. It’s getting a bit ridiculous.
Ridiculous is being a new member, and being called a troll. I am now trying out this trolling thing. Am I doing it right?
I don’t think I am.
You condemn anyone who challenges you to question your beliefs? Call for them to be banned? That’s just pathetic. And, no, I’m not an f’ing troll.
If your beliefs were strong enough, they’d be able to stand up to questioning, and you’d appreciate a friendly debate.
I have to say I am beginning think that Kevlar and others are right. I think we should all just let it go and except each other. This is getting a bit crazy.
This thread has gone about as far as we’re comfortable with. You’ll note that some of the more inappropriate conversations have been deleted. Please, folks, refrain from direct insults to one another on these boards. This is not what Gone Raw was set up for and it simply won’t be tolerated!
Let’s get back to supporting each other in our raw, vegan paths. If you are looking for something else than this, then please readjust or move on. Thank you.
