We put up with more than our fair share of bashing in this thread, other threads, and in private. We're just generally mature enough not to go publishing, and making a scene out of it, to everyone on the forum. If I saved my PMs I would have some messages from users that would make most of your skins crawl and paint peel off the wall. If you guys could see some of the PMs I've gotten from some of the most "popular" people on this forum, I guarantee they wouldn't be so well liked.
We don't always want to tolerate the abuse we receive. Just remember, there is always two sides to any single story, we just rarely share ours. Not everyone on this forum is a good person, some of them are chronic liars and deceivers. Often times these are the people who cause problems and share their story of oppression; they sometimes exaggerate and manufacture injustice for the sole purpose of strengthening their case and drawing attention to themselves. They rarely tell the complete story, leaving out the misbehavior and negative actions which reflect poorly on themselves.
All I ask is that members try to keep an open mind when hearing stories and realize that sometimes you are hearing half truths and incomplete events.
All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
