The Evolution of Humanity – Again!

dEvolvingHey, this is a true departure from my normal posting … but, i found it a tad exciting, interesting, bewildering and in the end FUN!  After a long evening of lying around watching Million Dollar Listing, i awoke in the midday to find this exchange at one of the technology forums i happen to frequent.  First i regale you with my reply to the matter and then you can choose to sort out the drama if you dare.

BTW, this will mark my longest post … EVER!

(The names and site identification have been masked … unless someone gives me a reason to put ’em on blast … LOL)

WOW … it’s a forum! REALLY … A F-O-R-U-M – A place of gathering around unifying thoughts, ideas, purpose or concepts. A FORUM (making it big so somebody might notice it) a place where broad, diverse and often divergent views are presented … this is hilarious! Laughable! At the end of the day, everybody goes back to their neutral corners where the world is just the flavor they left it before they VOLUNTARILY slipped down this rabbit hole.

Smacks of the “rant” of an SS agent flushed with power. I laugh and thank you for the interestingly eye opening, behind the scenes look at the underpinnings (and dare i say seedy underbelly … LOL) … of not only this forum, but possibly many others. It is indeed a snapshot into the house of one of countless families around the world who espouse a view of the world that is born of a spirit of shallow bigotry and intolerance, IMHO.

In the crepuscular exodus from this landmark year i am reminded to view my own crass, witty, yet avuncular commentary and contribution to the world through a much broader prism.  I remind myself to respect, if not understand, the vastness of this universe and our societies.

I am literally floored (with laughter) by my naiveté of the human condition.  There are really people in the world who in this age of rapidly expanding technology and constantly shrinking borders and boundaries who find it as comfortable as a pair of old slippers to say things like, “littering the thread with bitchiness is not only not wanted its [sic] a very feminine trait, perhaps more appreciated at the twilight appreciation forums.”

In all frankness, i confess … i don’t know what the “twilight appreciation forums” means.  I’ll do my best to discover the relevance of the reference before day’s end.  Moreover, as i begin, again … LIFE is supposed to be FUN!  I am unable, unwilling or a combination of the two, to really give this the serious attention and gravitas that would be required in “flam[ing] the Mod” (i’ve heard of it, but not certain how to do it … LOL).  I encourage you my friend to “be easy and take it light.”  The journey continues.

Peace be the journey,

Rafiki

yes i know people asking dumb questions is annoying

but im pretty sure there’s a better way to deal with it than throwing the toys out of the pram and leaving a lot of posts in a DEVELOPMENT thread (i made the word development big so you would notice it)

basically that thread is for people to ask question and get a response from either a helpful member or the chef. littering the thread with bitchiness is not only not wanted its a very feminine trait, perhaps more appreciated at the twilight appreciation forums

so to sum up my rant about you behaviour

if you have an answer give it. if you dont have an answer but still feel compelled to tell the person how much they’ve annoyed you by asking a question then please dont reply, because instead of making the forums clutter free you’ve forced me to delete a good few posts from the thread this took up time i couldve spent doing something worthwhile

Dear Sir,

If you feel that by trying to get users to post enough information to actually help them in one post rather than having to repeatedly asking for more information is flaming, spam or some other type of inappropriate behavior I apologize. From my quick scan of the thread in question the only post of mine you removed was a large red one requesting the user to post which ROM, radio etc he/she is using. Perhaps a bit loud but not inappropriate.

As you say your time could be better spent not having to delete my posts, I suggest Sir that you are correct, just as my time would be better spent helping users who don’t require a game of 20 questions to determine the source of their problem. Perhaps starting a new site called XDA-Helpdesk would be appropriate, as it seems that most users want things fixed for them rather than utilizing the recourses provided to resolve issues themselves.

I disagree with your summation that a DEVELOPMENT thread is to ask questions of the chef and/or helpful members to get answers. The purpose of ANY FORUM is to share information and learn from each other, in my not so humble opinion repeatedly asking the same questions without searching for an answer is less appropriate than the behavior you are questioning in me.

You also seem to have not observed the hundreds of helpful posts I have placed in my 3+ years on XDA, or the hours of time I spend researching real problems for users, or the time I spend working with the chefs to beta test ROMs before they are posted publicly. I feel that I do a lot of good here as do the many members that send me PM or publicly post thank you notes for my assistance. Yes I am sarcastic, cynical and rude I also do my job as a senior member of this community.

Thank you for your feedback and I will refrain from posting my opinions in the future.

PS> I find your use of sexist references insulting and completely inappropriate. I may flame the obvious inattention of users, I do not personally attack them or post derogatory comments. Calling the kettle black is a far cry from being personally insulting. Please reconsider your use of language when posting.

On this Day!

reflections

The fruit of righteousness is not born on/from the tree of RIGHTNESS.  Rather, the abundance that is the fruit of righteousness rains from a sky which is unyielding in its willingness to be wrong; too saturated with the uncompromising will to be right; at once and forever pierced through its eternity with the passion of indifference!

Righteous has peach fuzz which masquerades as action or deeds.  It is not the meat of it.  The wise see action in inaction and inaction in action.  The glorious feeling bursting in the ripened sweetness of the moment bears witness to the TRUE heart of the matter.  PURITY.

So, speak to us of purity …

BE, in love.  You will BE love. Purity has no words.

BE, in love.  You will BE love.  Then … you will possess the knowing which is Purity.

BE.

BE, the Perfect Follower

rainbow-blue-sky

Unshackled, unfettered and unrepentant about my Joy!  Being present  in the daily, moment-by-moment perfecting of my conversation and my action , reveals the huge amount of sediment that i have accumulated in my mental luggage.

Leaving aside useless weight, releasing the grip on the handles of luggage which was never really meant for me to “marry” … i soar with my spirit!  Among the stars and in the deep, i revel in my newness and the eternal existence of my bliss.

THIS, I MUST FOLLOW!  NO MATTER WHERE S/HE MAY LEAD!
