Ok, need to seriously ask those who are doing this to.

Stop posting all of the Christmas posts that are aimed to annoy/trying to convert KT to liking christmas.

Would you guys appreciate having someone pushing their beliefs down your throat thinking that it should be common practice. Thought not, remember everyone has their own thoughts/beliefs and feelings about certain things, and it is up to that person to decide on whether or not they want to change those thoughts, if they don't want to then do not push it, you are only going to annoy/tick off/get the person upset.

So, please just let KT be, he doesn't like christmas, so don't go trying to convert him.

Pooping a lot annoys me.

Why can't the kids take the dog to the neighbor's yard!

We are talking about "baiting" him. When threads are started just to rub it in his face, that's uncool.

I agree that everyone has their opinion and beliefs but when another member is baited, SPECIFICALLY, that is not to be tolerated.

A joke is a joke, and we all joke here. But as Mr.Smashy said, he is NOT JOKING about this. Please show respect for each other in that regard.

Thanks

Turn about is fair play then. KT cannot start CHRISTMAS SUCKS threads and expect to be treated with kid gloves. If it is not OK to try and convert KT to Christmas, it is not OK for KT to bash Christmas.

I don't quite agree. KT's Xmas Sucks and I Hate Xmas Club threads are about his and others' generic dislike of the holiday. He was in turn personally and relentlessly mocked and attacked for his beliefs. That's quite a bit different, and not very nice.

Maybe I am not seeing this the same way. People start Christmas threads and the anit Christmas group is free to flail away, and do so, as I recall. But if the Christmas people let loose a few salvos, it is wrong?

Sort of like the "You know you have kids when" thread. The anti kid group chimed in and it got pretty ugly.

I guess if you have a dissenting view, do not comment. Gonna get kind of boring around here.

Out right attacks are one thing, but offering a differing view is another.

Were there an "I Love Xmas!" thread, I'm sure there would be some who would chime in with "Blah," just like xmas fans post positive comments in the "Feh On Xmas" threads. That's fine, so long as it doesn't turn flamewar.

What I'm saying is that KT was singled out and picked on. Instead of being general "I Love Xmas" threads, threads were started along the lines of "This Is Why KT Should Like Xmas!"

X has it right.

This is not an effort to stop people from trying to post Christmas loving stuff in my anti-Christmas threads. This is ONLY about the threads that were all coming out DIRECTLY aimed at me. I don't care if people want to come into my "Christmas Sucks" thread and post their pretty snowmen and stuff. To me the little fight back and forth is fun and it hasn't yet (to my memory) gone ugly.

It is also not about letting people start their "I love Christmas" kind of threads. Just like they Christmas lovers do not stay out of my anti-Christmas threads, they can't expect me to stay out of theirs, in general. And that's OK.

This is ONLY about the people who were starting threads directly aimed at me. It shows that the only thing they really wanted to accomplish was to offend me and see the reaction. I am a big boy and don't really care of somebody wishes me "Merry Christmas", but to single me out like that is a whole new ball game. The obvious intent was just to "get a rise" out of me. That is completely disrespectful of me and my opinion.

Actually not nearly as much as you think. I just ignored those threads. This whole thread here is honestly more than I wanted. I didn't even ask for them to be deleted....I talked with Siu about something else and she asked and I said "sure". This whole thread here was started from that....waay overboard from what I wanted, but that's ok.

I stopped reading all of the Christmas threads a while ago....kinda boring and overblown, however this one caught my eye..

I was under the impression that KT actually liked Christmas , just not the Christmas "season"....and all the commercialism associated with it....?
