"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." --- Winston Churchill

No worries - I totally understand (in fact, it was after seeing that several other people had added you today, likely from there, that I posted the extended intro). After all, you don't know me at all :) I originally joined that group because I used to run a community called [livejournal.com profile] sassy_sirens and we had some fake death drama from [livejournal.com profile] ivy_is_poison.

Still, who knows, maybe our paths will cross again. I don't know much of anything about the drama you were involved in, but I hope you're able to get it straightened out soon. :)

Oh geeeeeez. fake death brings friends together, huh?

As for my drama? It was LAST YEAR. The problem with 'some' young women is that they a: don't understand sometimes that whatever's got them in a tizzy isn't That Bad, and b: overreact, hyperventilate, work each other into a tizzy, and then just bounce off the walls looking for a place to land. That's why there's drama with me today. Poor girl can't let go. It wasn't me that hurt her, either.

I admit I get drawn into it, but not like I used to. It's more a 'poke it with a stick and see what it does' kind of thing. I love it. They're so predictable. Like...throwing a stone in a pond *evil grin*

But truly, it's so 2004 ;)

Hah! I actually know completely what you mean... I had a small issue which led me to ban four or five journals from my own and any communities I ran about a year ago. (Heaven forbid, I had removed someone from my flist because their constant ED talk drove me up a wall as a former bulimic. It became a huge "You're persecuting me!" drama. Oy.)

Sometimes the only solution is banning all their incarnations and biding your time. I think eventually without stimulation they lose interest. Ironically that's the approach I'm taking to a similar drama blowup going on right now on a message board I belong to, heh. I used to get more involved, firing back messages, getting myself upset, but yeah... in perspective to the rest of life it means so little. I'd love to have the free time of some of these people...

I figure, if they're going to provoke me on purpose...they should never be surprised of the result. It should be automatic beatdown. It's like training a small child. :)

I realize this isn't the 'high road', but I've taken the high road...you just come out the other side alone. Everyone loves the low road *laugh*

That IS my goal for this year though. Taking the high road more often.

Well, see the problem with the high road is that the low road is *so* low sometimes that the person down there can't see you on the high road and just assumes you're behind them somewhere on the low road. It's much more satisfying sometimes to be on the low road, so you can run them off the road and over the guardrail. Not that I've ever done anything like that... 0:)

Of course. No decent person would ever do that to someone who might, allegedly, deserve it!
