Why can't we all just get along???

Recommended Posts

Yes mate, don't worry you are not alone, similar views have been passed on to me by others recently. 

I don't expect everyone to agree all the time, that would be extremely boring and wouldn't be much of a discussion forum but it is the way people choose to disagree that is the issue. 

*Edit to add, I moved this to the main page as I want to ensure it is seen.

I believe there are also some inside jokes, that to an outsider reading here look like some pretty angry and passive aggressive commentary.

Understood and - not personally knowing some of the participants - this might be nothing more than banter between friends ... but the tone could be really off-putting to any newbie!

Roxii, thanks for your work, as always.

I think it's fair to say Trannies brings out both the best and worst in people. Sadly sometimes more the latter than the former.

One of my go to phrases when dealing with warring parties...

You can’t shake hands with a clenched fist.

But seriously yes it can be full on as a new member. 

 

Inside jokes take ages to figure out. I still can't figure out how seat too high became hilarious.... And that was circa 2007?? LOL 

 

The people here rock. 

Grains of salt need to be taken. 

It's just triathlon. 

 

Yay. 

 

Sorry that's all I have. I've been up and going since 3am. Seriously. 

 

Cheers

Yeah, stuff can get a bit out of hand, and yeah for a new person coming into a very established community can be a little confronting.  But I can say that when the community comes together for something, those lines seem to disappear and those warring parties come together without seemingly a second thought.  You ain't gonna get along with everyone, you ain't gonna agree with everyone.  But in the end to me actions speak louder than words and this place is a lot of words but the actions out way them.

I was only a fan of the known stuff, till I listened to an old live recording of his.  Bloody fantastic!!

I'm a little bit older.
