I live in denial
You should maybe get some therapy for that then cos it can't be good for your psyche to be living like that then :)
pretend they were not written by humans, but by web robots :}.
So explain please what the difference is between the two then ? :)
You kept repeating it all over again.
Not really. I mentioned it where I felt it was appr
opriate in response to another poster. Sometimes helps to clarify a point if someone has missed it :)
What are you afraid of?
I'm not afraid of anything <I did used to be scared of spiders but I conquered that , and now I just don't like them> Life's far too short to be scared of anything :)
If your post stayed in the old thread, it would have received exact the same responses from other members
Precisely, so why did you feel the need to make it into a separate thread then without asking me if I was happy about it ? Surely it would have been the more respectful thing to do i.e. ask me first !
I don't see a reason why you would like to be "known you did not create this thread."
Why not ? If someone else creates a thread under my nickname then it should be duly noted that this has happened. It shows in my profile that I created a thread when in fact I hadn't. I deal in fact, not fiction :)
You copy-pasted the whole mission statement
I did , that is true. But I didn't get it off PF. I was doing some research and came across another site which had a lot of detailed information about PF and analysis of traffic etc and it had the Mission Statement on there. Admin, why would I ask for a link to where it is on the site if I knew where it was already. That is such an illogical thought that I can't comment much further. I'm not playing a game here. Either this is a fair debate or it isn't. If you want a fair debate , great ! If not, then why start of a separate thread.
I admire your Mission Statement and think it is well thought out and
pretty good in terms of its objectives but I do think that most posters know nothing about it. So , I ask the question again, what is the point of the Mission Statement for PF ?
A Mission Statement means how the authors and creators of this forum would act and how they would behave if they were the only participants in this forum.
That's not correct. Factual comment not a criticism.
A Mission Statement is not a directive on how or what people should think.
No, I would agree with that. So it starts to make some more sense now. Your statement is not in the truest sense a proper Mission statement. Therefore, it's just something that was written on a page and really doesn't mean too much too any poster or member of PF.
I am merely debating here <in the truest sense of debating, my intention is not to have a'go' at anyone. I do not have that sort of mindset. If anyone wishes to personalise this or 'have a go at me' then feel free. It is after all a Forum where anything <to a large extent is acceptable> but I thought the thread was created so that people could debate the issues.
I've absolutely no interest in turning this into an argument or slanging match because I really am not into that kind of situation.
I mean what you read on the net is only a different version that says the same thing as in a book.
I've introduced it, practised it and brought it into play in some corporate companies so I can safely say I can put my money where my mouth is on this issue, maybe that is the problem here. I talk from much experience and don't view things like some other people because of that and that is why I took the Mission statement seriously.
I'm stopping here now because as I said before I don't wish ti get into silly, petty arguments or slanging matches. It's a shame that it couldn't be properly debated, maybe <my view> it would have made PF <in some respects> a more enjoyable site for many new posters <who don't stay> as well as for some existing members who never want to add their views whether or not they agree with it.
Have a nice evening :)
