Warrior Forum NO DRAMA Pledge - Plus a *Disclaimer* You Can Use

20 replies
I direct theatre productions outside of my full-time IM business activities. And my gosh, I can honestly say there's more drama created here on a daily basis than in my last ten theatre shows *combined*.

What amazes me is drama is often created on threads where it's clear the best of intentions were meant by the OP.

Some perspective to consider:

-- Every post on the first page of the main discussion forum will be ancient history in a few days max. That's because the mods make sure no single post maintains unfair visibility above the rest. So getting your undies in a bunch over any single post is legitimately silly.

-- If the post is well-intended and reasonably well-written, someone will gain value from it. You may not gain any value, and that's fine. Render your opinion if you feel the need to do so, but don't keep throwing bricks or beating your chest. It just makes you look bad.

-- Having a strong opinion is great, but always ask yourself whom or what your opinion - and your *way* of expressing it - is actually serving. Some of the strongest and most outspoken opinions here are taken extremely well because of the way they are expressed. Something to consider.

In addition to the above thoughts, I've written a Disclaimer you can add to your posts if you choose. For a limited time I'm offering a free license for unlimited use of this Disclaimer. See below.

    That sure must tick off the people who purposely stir up drama to get exposure, get ego strokes, etc.

    I cannot believe you would come out and just spout this nonsense like this.


    How very dare you?

    On this, of all days.

    You knew full well that drama makes the world spin. Without drama, there would never have been a bottle of milk for the cat.

    I tried reasoning with you, and you create crap like this.

    Well.. I completely disagree and would greatly appreciate it, if you would take into consideration the feelings of hundreds of forum members before you post this stuff.

    I speak for many (I don't actually, but I'm gonna act like I do for effect and to boost my slowly deflating ego), when I say.. you are out of order, Ken!!!!!!!!!

    Is that enough exclamation marks to stress the tone in my post?????

    Sheesh!!

    I only want makeh teh monisez...

      The fact that you would call it a pledge is BS!

      The no name furniture polish works just as good.

          Are you disagreeing with me?

          Well, then all I have to say is your a scammer if you don't think like I do!

          You are always trying to manipulate my words and I'm sick of it!

          I always knew not to trust a guy with a capital X in his username



          This thread should be closed!

            I'm sorry if you can't understand what I am writing.. but I have to strongly disagree with you on this one...

            I wasn't disagreeing with you, I was simply saying that I think what you said wasn't true. If you wanna get all petty... fair enough.

            But I won't stand for it!!

            I'm always trying to manipulate Ken's words and I'm lovin' it!


            I always knew not to trust a guy with a capital X in his username
            Me too... but I call BS on that, too.

            This thread should be closed!
            Agreed..... Not!

          LOL! That's so funny.

          The crazy thing is this forum doesn't have a lot of drama compared to other forums.

            Probably true. That said, my sense is the tolerance for drama here is MUCH lower.

    If you start a thread somebody will usually come along and
    expose some hole in your words. Sometime it looks like
    the critics only get their thrills from making originators look
    like idiots.

    What's kind of unwise is to get reactive about it. You can
    try to make your original posts well-intentioned and add
    qualifiers to define the scope of what you're writing about,
    but it usually won't stop somebody coming along and
    misunderstanding what you've written.

    Any author, poet, musician, actor, playwright - whomever,
    who puts work out there is usually subjected to unkind
    criticism from people who seem to have very little basis
    for offering intelligent criticism on the subject at all - like
    a classical music snob calling Bluegrass "Bumpkin music".

    It goes with publishing and performing, unfortunately.
    In the end it's a good idea to cultivate a thick skin.

    Now we have 2 or 3 BS and 2 belly laughs and Jeremy developing a new product for "How To Do Drama In The WF Boot Camp"

    This is not entirely fair to my dead Uncle who really loved to stir up the pot regardless if he knew anything about it.

    Consider me the official stirrer upper of this thread on creating drama in this No Drama Pledge.

    I pledge to keep stirring up No Drama.

    ROTFLMBO! My dead uncle made me do it. And lets face it Dead Drama is a killer of any No Drama Pledge.

    BTW did I ever tell you about my Dead Drama WSO, I launched this morning on another laced drama topic. It's only $97.00 and I will give anybody half price to join through that other drama laced thread about Deal of The Day.

    Please don't you drama queens bust my chops go after the other Ken, he started this No Drama Crap, which is unfair to my dead Uncle and that guy above me who blew the wet willie bleh, Talk about drama, Sheesh!
