I was one of the people that used the word "troll". He was a troll. He was here for no other reason than to cause problems. He was not here to make friends, He was not here to be part of the community. He was here to prove he could do anything he wished and pay no consequence. He was a bully. I don't care about his problems. I care about his actions. I have seen too many good people leave here because of trolls like that. Fuck him.

Not disagreeing with you, or the outcome on this one at all.

He crossed the line (yes, eventually mine) more than once.  And when you do that here, you've got about two options: suck it up, eat your words and apologize and back it down a notch or two; or eff off after doing the implosion thing that a few of us here excel at by helping an abuser morph into an implodey-dope just before earning the punt.

 
I get it. I really do. I always think about our friend Zipper's tag line. Fits perfectly. I'm probably the most imperfect person you'll maybe never meet, but I'm a damned good coach. I've seen the future clearly and I'm not giving up on the alternate path no matter what version of hell offers an easier way out. There's true peace and freedom there. I know it as sure as I know anything. I believe in the Gypsymen of the world infinitely more than they believe in themselves. I am not afraid of failure.

You and I have absolutely no problem whatsoever, disagreements or not. And I am trying to save the world; one reflection of myself at a time.
We are all here for a reason. Gypsyman too. He wanted to burn it down, throw it away. It pleased him to do so. I asked him, in my verbose and convoluted way to reconsider. He chose to ignore me. He chose to ignore BillG. He chose to ignore what could have been an opportunity to heal himself and his anger.  None of us chose that for him, did we? In fact, the large majority chose to ignore him altogether. I rather wish he had cared enough about RP to make his case without hatefullness, but he chose his own selfish way, for his own selfish reasons. Hate is not logical, and it is always destructive.

How many times does it need to be Radio Paradise that's to blame? I'm not calling him anything but out for trying to kill the goose that layed the golden egg, and get some self satisfaction in the bargain. I tend to respond to respect. The other stuff, not so much. .

This is one of the kindest and most caring groups of people (who have mostly not ever even met) I've ever encountered. We give money, we fix each other's cars, we offer questionable psychoanalysis and dangerous advice. Despite the claims of 'oneness' we're a pretty mixed bag of nuts and it mostly works out okay.  I'm sure he's hurting and I truly hope he gets some help or relief. But I don't want him hurting anyone here, and if that's all he's got to get attention then I won't miss him. No ill will, and I'd welcome him back anytime (with a reasonable probationary period).
