That's so typical. You're dead wrong. Nobody wants to enter a space and be ganged up on and abused for doing basically nothing like not telling a joke just so. I've been really disappointed at some of the behavior I have seen take place in DT around ganging up on someone because its easy. Its impossible to defend yourself at that point because idiots will call you a delicate flower and tell you you can't take it. Frankly, yes, Pio, you are part of the problem, just look at the bullshit you triggered below the quoted post to see the result. Your post is an attempt at intimidating people from speaking up against the abuse.
You do often act like a bully here. First time I encountered you, it was in the wine thread where you tried to put me in my place only to find out a number of my family members were vinters. Then you backed off.
After that we've chatted in other threads and differed and agreed respectfully and I can say with 100% honestly we'd probably get on well if we met face to face. But you and many others allow that mania to take over and you really treat people like shit in DT sometimes. I engaged in it at times myself. While ya, this is a fucking website, I do sometimes think of things I did or said here, like everyone with a 1000 posts or more prly does. I also admit I have felt bad doing shit while watching noobs get trashed knowing if I stepped in I'd be ganged up on as well.
So I'm an intimidated delicate flower for calling out the cool kids and suggesting they close down the store. Fine. I would argue differently.
