THANK YOU, for saying that, Delta!! I don't know if you've been following the forum on the RLSH website (www.therlsh.net), but the post placed the for Dark America displays everything that is hindering the movement.
What started out as a mistake quickly became a nightmare as the fighting went nuts. I found myself frustrated with the individuals being rude on there and became defensive.
I ended up sinking to their level and was saved, thanks to Rook, who stepped in to remind me of the importance of being a bigger person.
(Thanks again, Rook)
From all of that, something strange happened... I began receiving Private Messages from other heroes and individuals saying that they agreed with me and supported me, but didn't want to get into it with the guys that were on there.
For me... I saw this as something sad. It actually made me feel hurt.
One of them told me how they attacked him so he doesn't ask any more open questions.
It made me wonder... How many felt like this? This was literally BULLYING and for people calling themselves, 'Real Life Super Heroes', why couldn't they see it?
The sarcasm and swearing is out of control, over there. If a person disagrees with something the idiot and ignorant remarks start and then the swearing comes in to complete the destruction.
I have not given up on the guys there, yet and I am hoping that those who are looking for an alternative method to express their creativity will feel invited by coming here.
I would love to see the RLSH community come together like in the 'old' days, but that is mostly me being nostalgic. This is one of those things that needs to be taken... one day at a time.
No I don't go there much. I’ve never had an issue but your experience doesn't surprise me much. I could even make some good guesses about who was an issue. (Although I’ve seen even the best of them hit a little low at times. Never Rook or Knight Hood though …)
One of the problems with this group (as is with many as they grow) is that they sort of divide into groups with differing philosophical viewpoints. They both share a common ideology of wanting to serve and protect, but they are so varied on the question of the ends justifying the means that they forget why they originally wanted to do what they do.
I look at it using the metaphor of a trip. Everyone wants to go to the same place but there are so many routes to get there the loose sight of the destination. They are bogged down arguing about which way is the best (quickest, most fuel efficient, easiest to navigate, blah blah blah) and, in some cases, who’s going to drive. (Don’t even get them started on if they should use a bus or a plane )
Me, I’m happy to walk. (Which is good because I can’t afford the gas. )
Omen: Get in line, I have been working like crazy also. I have two major projects I have to finish and hopefully everything slows down. Haven't had time to log into the board... I actually miss it. It feels good popping my head in to see what's going on.

g40t90yes: Good Morning. Now I am no political activist, but with is going on in today's activist world, I have a question. Last Sunday Vice President Pence walked out of a Colts Football game because the Players took a knee. I would like to read your View about this

g40t90yes: Continue. Now The NFL Owners (Jones-Cowboys, Ross-Dolphins) are going to demand their players stand for the Anthem. Again just thinking out loud. Couple of weeks ago Owners (Jones) knelt with players. Now you are pulling back. Why??

g40t90yes: One more thing. Some people view The NFL Draft and NBA Draft as a modern day or fashionable auction block for black young men. Thoughts!!! Please.

The Muse: Im sure there are going to be a lot of thoughts on this...why not start a thread on the topic under the "chat" board. It will be easier for everyone to read and comment on it there. This shoutbox is kinda cumbersome to have to scroll through to read stuff.

The Muse: Where does the time go?
Nov 7, 2017 9:26:16 GMT -5
Omen: I don't know... some say time goes around in circles - for me, its just a dreary long squiggly line, in some places in its a smile, in others... its not.
