Well all right then. Since you won't give with the screenshots, I will. You and your old friend that was banned taught me to screenshot when things got nasty. So thanks! wink

I did not call you "bitch". Technically. I did call you something, in response to something you called me.

Here's how it went down:

In a thread about Pepe Le Pew, that went waaaay off-topic, lust and I were bickering back and forth.

lust said to me: "yes, you and your pandemic enabling mouth breathing brethren should be censored and in fact, the most vociferous amongst you should be charged with bio terrorism because they certainly have a body count."

While technically he was saying people like me were bio terrorists, I took it as him saying I was a bio terrorist. And I mean come on, I'm people like me, right?

So I replied to lust: "This bitch is accusing me of terrorism?!?" followed by an org approved and supplied emoji of a middle finger.

To which lust deflected with the technicality that he never called me that. Just people like me I guess.

Here's that exchange:

Screenshot-2213-x.png

Screenshot-2214-x.png


Screenshot-2215-x.png

Screenshot-2216-x.png


And that was it between myself and lust. It was over.

Meanwhile PennyPurple and AMERICA1ST were having their own very nasty spat, of which I was not involved, during which, he called her a "lying bitch", rather technically he tried to get her to confess that she was a lying bitch. So like lust did with me, AMERICA1ST was skating on a technicality of not actually calling her that.

In her response to him she said "Hey MODS, why is this poster and the other poster DJ, getting away with calling other posters bitches? How is that even allowed?"

She was not involved in my bickering with lust and I was not involved with her's and AMERICA1ST, yet still, she called me out.

So I responded to her: "Stop pretending words hurt you, honey."

Her reply back to me: "Stop being a pussy."

And I came back with: "And with that, you just gave up any leverage you think you had about name-calling, BEYOTCH!!" followed by another org approved and supplied middle finger emoji.

And her answer was: "Hey if you 2 can get away with it, so can everyone else. You cunt."

So eventually I did call her a PG-approved version of the word but I was not the one that flat out called her a bitch. AND, it was after she had already called me a pussy. Plus she followed up by calling me a cunt. So, she's not really offended by such language, she just pretends to be to try to get others banned. And don't point out the irony of being so anti-ban while also actively campaigning to get people banned. It will go right over her head.

Here are the exchanges described above:


Screenshot-2217-x.png


Screenshot-2218-x.png


Screenshot-2219-x.png


Screenshot-2220-x.png




So, to recap, I did not call PennyPurple a bitch.

lust called people like me bio terrorists, I "mistook" this as him calling ME a bio terrorist and called him a bitch. He and I moved on.

AMERICA1ST suggested PennyPurple confess to being a lying bitch.

PennyPurple complained to mods about myself and AMERICA1ST calling people bitches and getting away with it.

I called her on her faux offense to the language.

She called me a pussy.

I pointed out her hypocrisy and THEN, in response to being called a pussy, called her a BEYOTCH. A sanitized version of bitch. She had not sanitized "pussy" in any way. Then she called me a cunt which she likewise did not sanitize.


Not once did I call PennyPurple a bitch.

Not that it would really cause her the harm she claims to have suffered...

One last screenshot, grabbed tonight, to prove PennyPurple is not really offended by the word bitch.

From her own profile here on the org: "BIDEN WINS, BITCHES!"

Screenshot-2222.png


Microphone... DROPPED!


EDIT: I realize I don't look any better than the other people in the screenshots above. I'm not. P&R was often a volatile, toxic invironment and things often got very nasty, escalating to the point where all sides crossed lines. I certainly participated in more than my share of the bickering. But I only came with the personal attacks in response to being personally attacked. Call me a name, I call you a name, try to hurt my feelings I try to hurt your feelings more. That's what we had to learn as kids to deal with bullies. Don't back down. As I get older and see so much division I'm learning that sometimes it's best to walk away and ignore BS, especially on the internet, which is why I've barely posted in P&R the past year and a half, but that's a work in progress and someimes I've gotten pulled back in. Anyway, every time I was involved, it was never one-sided. It takes two (or many) to bicker and fight incessently. I'm stubborn, many of the people I disagreed with are stubborn. If nobody backs down and mods don't catch it in time, it gets bad. Which is why I've already stated in this thread that I think Ben's decision to close it is probably for the best. Both of the battles sampled above should have been nipped by moderation long before they got to the point they did and people got nasty, but MODS weren't around till the only thing to do was lock the thread. I also don't blame the MODS. Not the ones I like and not the ones I don't. They have a thankless job, that they do for free, and they are constantly attacked, even in this thread, by so many of the people on this site. Some of the things being said about them are uncalled for. Hopefully this exchange I shared above will give people an idea, a snapshot, of what it was really like, and balance out some of the claims that are being made as to what it was like, and to help people understand that Ben made the right choice.

And lastly, a lesson for everyone, if things get nasty, screenshot that shit before the thread gets locked and somebody accuses you of saying something you did not. Gotta keep the reciepts!! wink

There's nothing to "weasel" out of. If I called you a "bitch" and you reported it, I will be banned. If you reported something that was not factual, I will not.

You weren't banned. That's part of the problem with the mods not doing their damn job. That's why there needs to be a change. If I called someone a bitch I would have been banned, but you and others had free reign, and you've called people much worse...


so you calling me a RACIST is ok then....i see rules for thee but not not for me.

Right. Those that are making up lies they can't back up, you're cool with.
The one person that lays all the cards out on the table and brings receipts to expose the truth is "pathetic".
Got it.

Deliberately posting to provoke a person who is regularly provoked in PM&M by a person who used to be a regular in P&R would seem to indicate that the spread is as well contained as the common cold.

It will always remain as a way of excusing provoking people in a thread that is far from humourous.

.

And that is the point: it does not matter whether it is laughing at people for their different politics or at people who visit here and don't know enough about Prince or people that like the wrong Prince song, wrong Prince era or style (and, for some here, Prince at all). The end result is the place can be very unviting. P&R was just the place where this was most blatant, but the next place in line is PM&M - and all indications are that this was the forum that Prince most hated.

But what was posted as humour was posted against Freaky, not P&R. Such comments against Freaky are not uncommon in PM&M.

.

I also miss the way the Org used to be. However, I believe that it can get back to that. All it takes is to be nice to each other.

Despite some of y'all, a couple or so, fussin' amongst yourselves, I'm still hopeful about the Org's future, the closing of P&R (still hold that a year is good; shouldn't dare be opened again until the beginning of 2023), et a.
I have some plans to revisit some older albums by other artists, and get some conversation going about them.

Part of this is recognising that there is something rotten in the state of Denmark and not just in P&R. Solve this and we can all be hopeful.
