see, and this is why i have a problem with you. you admitted it yourself that you have your way of doing that, and instead of just accepting that some don't like it, you choose to double down and mock it.

You never hide her nasty posts ..

Ever 

Here's the deal...and I'm coming at this from a neutral point of few.  Every moderator/admin hear's this:  You never hide x's post...you are against me because of my views, etc.   But the problem is, NOBODY other than moderators can see all of the hidden posts, deleted posts and warnings.   99% of the time, people come at us blind.   I've seen mappy delete/hide plenty of posts from Trixie, I promise you.   I've seen some of yours hidden.  Shit man, they've hidden some of mine! 

You were upset yesterday about one of your posts being deleted.  I supported the deletion.  It wasn't because of what you believe.  It wasn't because of some dislike of you (I actually like your posts).   I couldn't care less about politics and I think we are all better off not knowing people's political persuasions.  The post wasn't deleted because it was personal against you...but we've been moderating these forums for a while and we know where it was going to go (and in fact, it went exactly how we knew it would). 

I'm not going to convince you or anybody else who thinks we have some sort of bias, but I assure you, we've deleted posts from "friends" and "long timers".   Yes, I'm not going to sit up here and lie to you and say that long timers don't get more leeway...of course they do.  But not to the point of breaking obvious rules.   My point with the long winded post is that yes, I can confirm that mappy has indeed deleted some of her posts and in fact, those two have gotten into it multiple times.

Some of ya'll just become downright NASTY people in the winter. It's not a good look. I'm not going to single anyone out - but there's definitely a good number of people that maybe need to do some soul searching. It's weather. Get a grip. It's not even politics in here. There's a mute function - use it. And I *KNOW* some of the offenders are totally rationale, normal people in here other times of year. 

Grow the F up and realize that there are winner and losers in every weather event. Stop getting all butthurt over a weather forum.

If you feel like you're getting bullied - privately message a mod or something - stop duking it out in public. I don't speak for everyone - but I'm pretty sure the vast majority of us weather enthusiasts don't want to see you have little petulant outbursts in the public forum. 

There's a DM feature, report feature, and mute feature. Use them.

I never said nor admitted i do what Trixie said. To say I’m offending sexual harassment survivors is disgusting and incorrect. I’m not harassing anyone. I’m joking around and never ever directing it at a woman. If people don’t like it just put me on the ignore list. Nothing would make me happier.

All the long timers know I don't tend to be the type to have outbursts...but good lord...the forum is not out to get you. Randy can ban me after my little rant above or 5-post me. 

The amount of drama in here just feels 10x worse than it has in years past. And no...it's not all new posters, it's A LOT of people. New and old. I have ZERO people on my mute list here - and normally I just scroll past little outbursts of drama. But this is just not a hard concept for me - can't we all just be at least courteous? It cannot be this hard.

Your "rude" shtick can be quite funny, in moderation. Maybe pick your spots.

Ok. I didn't see her post, ill go back and look. But mocking it all the same is just a bad look man. We get it, you like sex, boobs, ****ing, dicks, whatever... you do you. There's just a time and place for it, and not every single post people make has to be made into a sexual innuendo. I'm guilty of it too, how many times have I said those anomaly maps look like boobs (they do!) so there are times where its funny and I laugh and we move on

The only mistakes I’ve ever seen made here in regard to this is when a post of mine has been deleted. That should have never happened. I support the rest of them.

You could have just left it alone.  smh.   You know I don't have a problem with you, but if the ladies tell you it's offensive to them, it's probably offensive.   I'm a dude, so I can't tell them what they feel or how to feel about it.   What are jokes to me and you isn't to them.   You really can't see why dick jokes might not be funny to women? Why not at least acknowledge that and not mock it?  I'm not blameless because I've encouraged you, because as a dude, it was kinda funny.  We're dudes and most dude's have the maturity of a 5th grader...so of course we think it's hilarious.  I know you're harmless, but you gotta be careful with this stuff.

I just love laughing in life. Unfortunately funny is generally inappropriate humor and sex related. If it offends you as a woman I sincerely apologize. I guess it’s the amount of times i do it that offends certain people. Thanks for pointing out what you think is the problem. No promises but like @CAPE said I’ll try to moderate it.

If you are not one, you can't know, though, right? Constant or near-constant double-entendres might not be as funny for everyone and might actually be hurtful to some. Being an adult means thinking beyond oneself, maybe? I don't see anyone telling you to never engage in "hey now" or "that's what she said" or "phrasing" jokes, but there's a line, and maybe its possible to not go over that line. I don't think that's an unreasonable ask.

I hear you and you are probably correct. I just couldn’t control myself after the things she compared and accused me of. I’ll try to be more careful in the future.

I am not here to stop your from laughing in life. We all need to do more of that these days. Just dial back the sex posts, man. Thats all I'm asking. Just dial it back. And stop mocking us who have issues with it.

Goddamn we need another January 2016 up in this camp. 

Maybe once winter is over and COVID is in the past we need a forum screening of The Day After Tomorrow or some other terrible weather movie. Booze and delicious food?

The mocking part was definitely a huge mistake and I apologize to anyone who I offended by it. I’m working on dialing back the sex posts.

How you been holding up over there Jeb? I know this stretch has been one for the record books to the northwest

This has been one interesting week or so. We hit 6 for a low one night. We had highs in the upper teens one day. We got a third of an inch of ice yesterday. We got 6.5 inches snow Sunday night. We got an inch and a half of snow today. Our normal snow here is three quarters of an inch of snow in an entire season. There are still snowpacked roads down here. Everything froze last night real hard and the driveway turned to ice. We have frozen pipes too, have to get water from a neighbor.  It has really been intriguing. I never expected all this snow and ice down here. Its surreal. The park where I watch soccer games all the time, now has 2 foot snowdrifts and icicles hanging off the benches where I cheer all the soccer goals!

What has been causing all this down here? Is it the polar vortex of doom?  Lol

Yeah, I generally try to just scroll past the BS, and I don't have anyone on ignore either (though am getting sorely tempted at times lately!).  I'm guilty too at times of replying or "getting into it" a little with some of the heated discussions.  I had a post removed the other day, when I responded to a somewhat political comment.  In hindsight, and even at the time, I thought I probably shouldn't have but figured what the heck, and I tried to word it reasonably.  But it did get removed along with some others (including the one I responded to), and honestly I don't have a problem with that and sort of expected it.  I sure don't feel "targeted" or whatever.

I think nearly all of us do this up to a point, myself included.  Sometimes I probably shouldn't but I don't go "overboard" on every single comment.  And yeah, I'll make (as will many others) comments like "uh, oh...paging ravensrule!!"  Hell, even Bob Chill said something the other week about some precipitation feature looking like "red horse schlong!"  LOL, it did!  But I know what you're saying...a little bit of the innuendo banter is funny, but not to where everything is viewed through that lens.
