Post # 1
Quite recently I have had many complaints about my replies to posts.I have been called "hostile", " a bully". I've been accused of deleting posts that I didn't agree with;something I have never done! I have been told that I shouldn't be a Moderator or Editor.
So, let me make this clear. I did not ask to be a Moderator; I was elected by five other Moderators. I didn't ask to be an Editor, I was "appointed" an Editor by Petrarca.
I will make a vow, here and now, and let it be known.
I will never again reply to a post. I will only reply to private messages.

I don't think anyone meant to upset you, brysing. We love you for who you are and what you are deciding to become but the problem is that we have some young members in here who would not take your words easier on them self so it is all about communication skills and being less prideful that all.

I mentioned it privately, but I also feel I need to express my own opinion, I personally don't see Brysing's posts as hostile, nor do I think he is a bully.

I do think, as Bel said, people sometimes take things which are written bluntly a little too harshly, personally I prefer that style, I don't beat around the bush myself. As for deleting threads, that accusation which I made was not necessarily aimed at Brysing, but just a general comment about the circumstances.

If my post contributed to this result, I have to publicly state I am not pleased by the outcome. I do think Brysing's comments have their place, as does everyone's opinions. I value his comments in many respects and have always enjoyed his blunt style, and if he chooses to keep this vow and never reply to a post the site has sadly lost a valuable resource of knowledge.

There is a huge difference between "bullying" and someone being "honest." In this entire case "honesty" has been the only way I've seen Brysing take. The "youngsters" have nothing to do with this. I've met some very bright young members on this site. And I've also seen very ignorant people. Its the ignorant and stubborn who tend to get their feelings in a bunch. I may not agree with everybody, but everybody may not agree with me on certain subjects either. People need to take into consideration that there are so many different cultures, and aspects, paths, that people are coming from. But when the silly things get involved, is where someone needs to put their foot down, and show where the facts are. And this, is only what I've seen Brysing do here at SoM, which is shut down the ignorance. As we all know, there is a ton of silliness that swamps this site, and a Mod like Brysing, who will take care of this, is a wonderful Mod for that in my opinion.

I think you're just blunt, and I like that. Yeah, sometimes things may a bit harsh, but some people need to be told! I wish you would still reply to forums, Brysing.

Brysing you provide a perspective and source of knowledge that many people on this site need . You don't require that others agree with you, and you don't demand that they share your point of view. You do, however, point out that their beliefs aren't the end-all, be-all of spirituality, knowledge, or understanding. They are, ultimately, just beliefs and without the backing of facts they mean as much as words in the wind.

Not only this, but you provide experience, anecdotes, and knowledge that frequently made me smile, humbled me, or otherwise provided insights for myself and the rest of the site. It's terribly sad that you're no longer going to be posting, and I quite hope you'll change your mind.

As always, my friend, your presence is welcome and invited on the forums.
