Okay, I decided to put this here for lack of a better place.

Simple rules:


1. Anyone can post a rant.
2. Nobody can respond to another persons rant in this thread.
3. No rant can name a specific person.


I'll go first:

I am not a mind reader. I did what you said to do EXACTLY. If there is more criteria for how I shold handle situat9ions like that you need to tell me because it feels an awful lot like I am getting crapped on for trying to reach outside of my usual responsibilities to help. SOMETHING YOU DESPERATELY NEED. I don't stand there and listen to your drunken rants because it is entertaining...it is because I need information to take some of the load off your shoulders and SOBER GUY doesn't want to admit he can't handle it, let alone allow me to help. I swear to god it is like getting stabbed by a baby with a knife every time I try to change your diaper.

I know that I personally have advocated being mindful of the words we use to avoid hurting other's, but sometimes people can be SO RIDICULOUSLY OVER SENSITIVE!!!!!!! For crying out loud just assume that we didn't mean to offend you rather than the other way around. Even if you're wrong you'll be happier.

That does feel good. :)

Im uncomfortable with this, though I cant quite put my finger on why.

Or they can always alienate guests by preventing them from commenting in specific forums by complaining since a few mem, er, "people" lack social skills...

So, this is a place to rant about whatever, but you don't want feedback or advice, or discussion on rants?
You want to shout and then?
You can express frustration and anger at anytime, in your journal or just scream it out aloud.
How exactly does this help? You personally or the people reading it?
This is not what should be done here, a rant area is just an excuse to give in to negative feelings and no offense but what church anywhere, would allow an area to be used in this way?
Personally I think it's a stupid idea
My rant !!!
Any feedback is welcome

The mind can calculate, but the spirit yearns, and the heart knows what the heart knows.

Its about having a place to blow off steam. There are plenty of threads for intelligent discussion about personal problems people need help with.

Expressing frustration in and of itself is not a bad thing and the rules I set down were to prevent petty bickering and hurt feelings.

Well ... I don't know. :unsure:

Would it really be so much different the the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem ? After all, it was stipulated "no names" and besides, it isn't necessarily limited to ranting 'about' things going on in the TotJO ...

This sort of thing could have the express benefit of showing others that we do indeed get stressed, frustrated, pissed off, scared, outraged, sad, and all the other things we try to cleverly express by bashing other people (not the best way, of course). There is something comforting in knowing that we are not alone in our suffering ; others suffer too. The 'reasons' underlying it may be diverse, but it is something that we all share.

Just remember -- basically all of these stresses we'll be vomiting up here have two basic questions at their root :
  • "What am I afraid of ?"
  • "Whose fault is it ?"

Go ahead and spleen away here ... But remember the rules. No name calling, no snarky-ness ... Okay ?

B) Betch'all can't do it ...

How's that for a rant ? :P
