Quoting Swept Away

This forum has a lot of intelligent people and they can see through threads like this

What are we supposed to be seeing through to? What's your hidden agenda, exactly?

I am waiting for Swept Away to respond to my last reply in this thread:

http://www.travellerspoint.com/forum.cfm?thread=62449

If he doesn't honor my request I'll refuse to read any threads he starts and will not reply to any of his posts.

I find Swept Away quite annoying, but as long as he writes only drunk drivel that is easily ignored ...

If you find me annoying, why would I want you to read and react to my post?

“If he doesn’t honor my request”which is to CREATE A PROFILE. right? honor your request? is that a threat? am I suppose to moved by that... I know you didn't mean anything bitchy... its actually funny, so I am quoting you. What made you think I will feel sad if you boycott my threads. If my post annoy you, then I'll do you a favor, I wont honor your royal demand.

to become a travel guru, obviously and then a moderator... agenda?
If you meet me in a bar or a hostel lobby, I would have an agenda other than to strike a conversation and or get TRAVEL info. If I have an agenda, I'd go to a pop star forum.

If you say "people can see through threads like this", that means you have an ulterior motive for posting this thread. I'm simply asking what that motive is--what hidden agenda you're hoping people are picking up on.

Or perhaps you've used the wrong English expression to explain yourself.

What I would wish... is that people stop making assumptions about other people. Its just a thread and no motives... Its an international forum and the people who made this forum should be glad if members from other regions come to "TALK" in this site... when the forum rules where created, it was for a forum, it was to provide an avenue for people who love to travel to communicate with other people who love to travel... Things are that simple.

some people can relate to what this THREAD is about... but like most other threads i wrote, the focus and the discussion became about the lunatic who wrote the blog entry. Its is very sad, because our judgement about other members may only reflect realities about ourselves. I don't leave, because I didn't get all these negative reaction until, I have posted so many post alraedy... I have been posting the same things and in the SAME MANNER, since my 1st few post.

No there is no agenda. I am hitting the bar in two hours, and I do have an agenda other than meeting ISREALIS to get information about TURKISH air, Visa to Jordan and free accomodations in Israel. If I ever have the funds to get there for my Bday.

The threads have a tittle and you are not forced to read... paradoxically, the 1st to reply are people who just complained about what I posted...

Its sad... but I thank the people who have the courage to defend this lunatic.
This forum has a lot of intelligent people and they can see through threads like this, what is to be sad about.

Gee Swept, did you ask yourself why people complained about your thread? Maybe it's because you basically told members that don't agree with you to go f*ck themselves and that you were being sage for pointing that out.

You have a talent for saying nothing, and a lot of it. You whine incessantly about people that bother you. And you constantly tell others that they're wrong.....and you get offended when they come back and say you're wrong. Why, as you state in the last paragraph of the original post, is a successful forum not about "what to do in Bangkok" or "how to get a visa in Thailand"? This is a travel website, and people want to know this information even if you don't. You can disagree, but in fairness, others have the right to disagree with you.

Lighten up, get off your intellectual high horse, and try being nicer to people. Think of it as good kharma.

regarding the warnings... I got 1 public last warning...

Just for clarification - since it appears you have missed one...

Warning #1:

Travel related threads and off topic material
May 27, 2009 - Page 2 - Post #22 - By Sam I Am (Last post in the thread.)

"Please consider this a final warning. None of us have time to come here and get offended by others; it's supposed to be a pleasant place to hang out and we all have to work together to achieve that."

Warning #2:

What is a Sex Tourist?
June 25, 2009 - Page 3 - Post #30 - By Sam I Am (Last post on the page.)

"Please consider this a final warning. I think we've tried all the other options aside from the inactivation button."

(You even received a "Please" twice.)

No there is no agenda.

Then I will simply conclude that by writing "people can see through threads like this", you simply did not understand what the English-language expression meant and had an altogether different meaning in mind.

What that could possibly be is beyond me.

Intellectual high horse? I would rather if someone thought I look cute in my deleted photos than give people the impression that I am smart. I am backpacking and I am allergic to people who are desperately trying to prove that they are smart, especially, if everyone is just trying to get drunk. The thread was more of an inquiry... You are allowed to disagree. Whether it is a forum of personality or topic, I am not saying it is GOOD or Bad... Thus I said, so what if a member is Egotistical? We assume that some people are egotistical... and so we find them abbraisive. This is not just about me. It is about a forum that should attract more people from different parts of the world. Its is about TOLERANCE and Respect. It is about a travel forum being just a travel forum for some people. There might be other personalities who come here and they can be different, annoying (to you), or whatever... But so long as these people do not violate forum rules, we should be happy that people find their ways to this site. They should know that this can just be a forum for them and they dont have to "BE NICE for Good Karma".

I come here to get infos, like the other members... but 500 post since 2007, some of the post were made, just to have a talk, which is not a crime, after all its called a forum.

I know what it means... I am not very happy with the responses and I am a bit irritated having to explain myself, when this thread had a better issue other than my forum rule violations. See through what? I guess the inquiry on my original post. Are there other things to be seen?- now that sentence I am not sure if its correct. But obvioulsy, I am not very careful with the laws of grammar, I am here to relax, may seem ironic, but yes, I am relaxing.
