I’m trying to step back from something that I believe is happening on bmindful and look at it from the outside. I’d like you guys to help me by stepping back and looking at it with me. I hope that I am completely wrong about this, but I think you’ll understand why I have some questions about something. There is a person on bmindful that doesn’t like me who goes by DB. Those of you who have been around the site for a while know what I am talking about. Now, I want to be very clear and I hope that I am wrong and I am not angry. I’m just curious and would like your thoughts. If you don’t know whether I am right or wrong I’d like those of you who do come on a good bit to pay attention for this and let me know what you think. What follows describes what I believe has been happening.
Not all of the time, and I only have one example at hand because I haven’t kept track of it, but often when I post something it is frequently followed with a new thread that is brought to the top of the forums and I get the feeling that it is a passive aggressive attack regarding something I have written. I may be wrong and I hope so. DB, feel free to clear this up immediately. I am not accusing you of anything, I’d like to believe that you are not doing what I have described, but it is a pattern that I have noticed. The only example I have right now has to do with a thread ez created that has to do with where thoughts come from. I wrote a long, drawn out, not well written ramble, but it wasn’t anything I feel ashamed of having written. You happened to come on and right after that thread you added a new thread with the song title “Some Things are Better Left Unsaid”. That, by itself wouldn’t stand out. But I’ve noticed that type of thing happening a lot. That is, I see that pattern. I write something, then there is a thread by you that seems to attack what I have written in a passive aggressive way. If you would like to address this, DB, please do so, but, I would sincerely appreciate it, and I believe so would everyone else, that if you address it that you do it in a direct, polite, peaceful and public way. I hope that I am wrong and would love to hear that from you and others. Given the things you have said about me on this site, I don’t think it would be fair to say that I am being paranoid. I’ve been noticing this for a while and I believe I have seen this pattern before not just with me, but with others on this site. I cannot and am not trying to speak for anyone else though.
I know this post sounds rather formal. It is not my normal style of writing, but in this case I believe this is the best way to say what I am saying. Again, I hope that I am wrong and I am sincerely not trying to offend anyone. I like this site and want to be free to be myself here without feeling that every time I write something I have to wait and see if I feel like I have been attacked in some way. I write this with an open heart to everyone on this site and I hope I am not offending DB either way. Whether I am right or wrong. Again, I hope that I am wrong. If what I believe I am observing is actually happening I would ask everyone to consider saying something to the new administrator about it. Again, I hope that I am wrong. No offense is intended.
