For everybody has been upset about the poster supporting gay rights
today, don't worry, he's gone!
It's my fault in a small way.
I am an ex-professional and when I quit the rec.scouting.issues last
night, he decided to chase me here! I e-mailed him privately this
morning and suggested that a low key approach might make him more
friends, but as everybody can see, he didn't take my advice.
I predicted that if he didn't, he wouldn't last long-he made it almost 8
hours! He's gone now, probably telling anybody who will listen that we
are all too narrow and bigoted for his "equal rights for everybody"
The trouble is that some people will inevitably buy his whole package if
somebody like me doesn't counter the daily flow of BS from any number of
characters over there. In that effort I posted for about two months,
but the issues NG is too frustrating for me, there is everything from
Satanists to a "post operative transvestite who just happens to be a
lesbian" (no kidding) that think the BSA is full of bigots because they
I tried my best to be tolerant, but my blood pressure couldn't handle
their constant dribble. I'll keep my computer Scouting to this level
from now on, and anybody who goes over there needs to do so with their
eyes wide open.
It's a big world!
