Personally I wish everybody would leave DD alone and quit quoting her since ignore doesn't work on quotes which blows.
So, if you see someone being bullied by a number of people to the point that it makes multiple posters uncomfortable (and mods have stepped in a times I believe), nothing should be said about it? If DD was one of your friends would you be cool with people treating her like this?

IMHO there difference between people picking on one individual person's posts for fun, and others saying to those people "hey, this is mean, we don't like it, please stop."

Most of her posts lately seem to involve taking an interest in people's posts and trying to be positively involved (and this is coming from someone who does not always agree with her).

There is a critter of some sort in our attic ... I don't know what it is, I don't hear it all the time but its made me afraid to go in the attic now . I hope it's not a rat, we already have one of those living in the con-ex box we keep the goat feed in

I was at work all day, then just got home only to be called back for an emergency (it's my first of four on call nights in a row). It was a three hour ordeal since the dog had a broken leg and some horrific lacerations. Got home, just finished dinner and now I realized I'm nearly out of milk and there will be a crabby small human in the morning if I don't make a store run.

Wah.

I got paid one of the biggest checks ever Thursday.

Agreed.

And, just to be clear, I saw nothing wrong with the DD post that seems to have started this particular debate. But I have a terribly inappropriate sense of humor, too. Then again, no one has ever jumped down my throat for it either...

Yes and yes. Internet communities have a tendency to police themselves as far as tone and behavior, and people saying "I don't like this behavior" isn't the same as personally picking on someone.

And yes. The reaction to the actual post in question baffled me more than a little bit. Honestly DD drives me batty at times and Lord knows I've argued (at times vehemently) with her about numerous individual posts or issues but to just pick out a seemingly random and innocuous post was some kind of weird drive-by counterattack-to-an-attack-that-wasn't.

I'm not sure how pointing out the irony of complaining about bullying turning into bullying became "nothing should be said." At this point it's a bunch of YEAH NOLU YOU ARE SOOOO MEAN.
I haven't seen a mod step in, but I'm really not that obsessed with anybody on this board that I go following them around to see what's going on in every post. But if it's so bad mods SHOULD be stepping in, shouldn't you guys report every post you see as people bullying DD? They can then mod-slap nolu if they think she's breaking rules. One of them actually lives near her so she can slap her in person if she wants.

As I said in my previous post, I wish the entire board would just stop. I put her on ignore and it's blissful. Everybody should experience the same bliss and lack of rising blood pressure.
But as it happens, nolu IS one of my friends, and no, I'm not cool with people treating her like this - so I'm going to say something. Why is it okay to say something in defense of DD but not in defense of nolu? Again, more irony.

You've said your piece - multiple people have - so move on now instead of repeatedly harping on it. Otherwise you're not behaving any better than people are claiming nolu is behaving. She's been singled out and piled on. I guess if that makes you feel cool, rock on bros. Peace out.

It IS ok for you to say something in defense of nolu. And then it's ok for other people to respond. It's a public space where everyone is entitled to their opinion, and then everyone else is entitled to their opinions OF those opinions.

But ask yourself... what are you defending? People are objecting to nolu's behavior, not her worth as a person. Do you really not see a difference between turning a random post into an opportunity for some personal insults and saying "whoa, I don't like what you just did there"?

And, as I have said in some infamous arguments WITH DD (breastfeeding etc), just because multiple people have the same opinion it doesn't make something a dogpile. It's just... multiple people having the same opinion and expressing it.

I feel ya there. I'm excited for/dreading the first of November. My biggest paycheck ever, too. Should have about $1300, and aside from filling up my gas tank, the rest is going to bills and paying down loans. le sigh.

At least that means I'll be able to start saving soon, right?
