Once you've taken a deep breath and calmed down a bit, could you perhaps tell us what your opinions are on AA and the 12 step program? That is what this forum is about, you know.

He sorta gets me...know what I mean? Thanks lass. I luv Geoff Peterson. I relate to Geoff!!

You are fighting with an insane person, so you can't win.
I understand how you feel. We like you, you don't need to say anything to that dirtbag, you know?
I finally got home and back to a solid internet connection, so I will write you tonight.
You come on a site where alcoholics and drug addicts have suffered through addictions and promote your drug use and what not. Then when everything goes freaking screwy for you, you then want sympathy from everyone. You repeat this silly behavior over and over.
But I am the dirtbag.
The hypocrisy on this site in insane, the tolerance for denial, is insane. Most of you just look the other way.

Trisha finally said something resembling being on topic.....of sorts. Accusing people here of being "in denial"....rofl. I deny the very concept as bullshit, Trisha. Denial is a nonsense concept to me, but thanks for playing.
Yes, Orange stated that dissenting opinions are fine, and I happen to agree with him on that point. How is it a dissenting opinion to tell a new member here to "fuck off", exactly? Don't turn this around and try to play victim, no one's going to your AA turf and starting fights there.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:11
This is what I mean PIE, this constant state of superiority you project here. Like this site was created for you and your opinions. NOT!!!! I have never heard orange ever say, "this site caterers to the unhappy people who were once in AA and only them". I have heard him say that he wrote down opinions, beliefs and facts (as he sees them) and posted them.
Trust me PIE, you are in denial of your behavior. I am sure, I am not the only person in your life to say so.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:15
Yeah, actually you are the only person in my life to say so! I have also grown bored of discussing this with you. Sorry to sound so "superior". Goodbye now.

I can see why Becket must put you in your place often. You have a really hard time playing tennis, don't you?

ROFL Trisha K!

danny, he's not referred to your beliefs or opinions at all other than to say he had to ban you for your accusations surrounding rape about a member of this site. Other than that, he's never mentioned you at all. Are you really delusional enough to believe he thinks you aren't dissenting?
danny this site WAS created for us and our opinions. The only purpose any of you trolls serve here is as a clear warning to avoid AA. You make our points for us. You know that.

Cause, all I know is that this board was running really nicely and things were being discussed in a normal and entertaining, even meaningful way right up to the point at which...well, I think you know at which point things got less pleasant.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:44
If you call bullying, harassing and attacking being normal. Then you are sick. PIE it isn't going to go all your way and if it doesn't the site is in chaos.
I had read enough and did not like how Clara was being related to by Causy. I guess it is alright for Cause to call Clara a, "fucking liar" and Ben to call becket a "bitch".
I guess you call this "running nicely'.
You are nuts!!!
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:40
I call this bullshit....this is your assumption. Now you can continue to call me Danny and look like a complete idiot Cause all you want.
What many don't know is Cause was accused of the same very nasty, filthy despicable actions herself on another site, she was also involved on Stinkin Thinkin of the same despicable behavior. Orange banned Danny (which he would not do today under the same circumstances) because Danny accurately and honestly copied a post from another site describing the retched behavior of another member here. It seems you know a lot about this incident don't you Causy.
If one would also read back a few months ago they would see where you "CAUSY" were accusing Danny of the same behavior.
Causy you see how it all comes around on you. You are dishonest and a manipulator, it took Orange time to figure out who you and your friends really are. I am so glad I am here today to see it...lmao!!!!
I heard all the crap about Danny when I first got here. What I know today, is this Danny character is something JR Harris and CauseandEffect made up or adopted from somewhere else. They needed this fictitious person to use as a deterrent, so they can create obstacles on this site.
As I told ben a week ago, who freaking cares if I am Danny or not. You have no say at all, no authority, no influence. This is all Oranges. If you don't like it, to bad, deal with it.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:50
You don't chose to pay attention. Cause please take your filthy comments and behavior and harass someone else.
Go make up a an imaginary friend, Oh you already have.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 19:43
....arrogance, C&E. Thanks!!!
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 16:56
Ironic, sounds great!
I know, he's a nut, which is why I'm not really fighting with him. But at this point he's just being disruptive.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:13
I disrupted your latest attack on Becket, your constant denigration of opinions Clara has. Yes grasshopper, you are accurate, I was being disruptive. It worked very well, too!! :)
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:34
Now THAT'S funny.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:26
So you flat out ADMIT your intention was to be disruptive. There is a word for people like you - troll.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 16:32
You are so full of yourself it is beyond funny. It is actually very sad and pathetic. You are a liar when it comes to Becket just as you were with Marietta. What you found was two women who had your number to a "T". Your insecurity and the way you deal with it here is silly. Grow up!!!
As far as me telling people where they can go, I will do and say what ever I feel. Just as you and all your friends do. There hasn't been a day that goes by that you or one of your buddies hasn't told an AA'er to leave this site.
PIE, don't like how I am dealing with you and others then stop with the harassment that your friends and yourself throw at us.
What is annoying is the fact that Orange has spoken on this very topic and said that opposing views are welcome here, even encouraged.
Until we stop being against 12 step programs....on an anti-12 step program site's forum...you won't stop coming here, despite being banned to be insulted by us--only after you start it all? I'm getting a bit giggly at that attempt at logic, frankly. It would sound like a threat if it weren't so utterly ridiculous.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:22
....what you give. I am asking of you one thing. Please, stop acting like a whiny brat and posting my comments in blog sections, in hopes daddy will see them and come running to help you.
Please who told you this was an Anti-AA site, Orange. I don't think so. You made this assumption up all by yourself.
Frankly, you surprise me "PIE O MINE".
Go ask Orange what he thinks of his site?
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 17:32
Why don't you tell us, danny, whether Orange thinks this is an anti-AA site? You seem to know all about it. What exactly does Orange have to say?
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 18:14
As usual you haven't a clue. All smoke, aye Causy.

Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:23
Who comes to an anti-AA site, to engage in this kind of gibberish, unless they just want to troll or cause a problem?
A lot of people are here (me included) in an effort to FORGET about AA and put it in the past. Some of us just want to MOVE ON and enjoy life. Constant reminders of AAers abound.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:03
Do you ever talk about what AA has done for you. or why anyone should want to go there? Seems to me you spend most of your time defending "your right" to be here.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:38
Actually, I speak often about what AA has done for me.
Remember Christopher Stevens when you vote.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:27
Well, I admit it DOES HELP to further discredit AA by having your type here.
Fri, 05/18/2012 - 21:53
Yes, my frustration stems from AAers who post here and say nothing.
I do have some idea of what you do to carry the message. You represent AA poorly here.
Wed, 05/16/2012 - 22:46
Ha, and once you hit 50 it's the eyesight.
On the bright side, I can honestly say I bring a perspective of AA that many might not know. AA was much less hung up on "rules" and the like when I entered into it. The saying "take what you need and leave the rest" really worked in 1977. Nowadays, no way.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 07:50
Kate, I keep hearing this again and again lately. Even over on TheFix in their comments. And offline. Was it very different back in the day?
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 07:55
I was just thinking the exact same thing! A number of the old timers (women especially) I met in AA have said that time and time again. I wish I had asked them to elaborate when I had the chance. I'd love to know how it was so different.
So, Kate, I second the question. How were things back in the day?

Lee has 33 years in the fellowship and she made similar remarks. Everyone wanted to be there, they got dressed up for meetings, they enjoyed them and participated. People wanted to get well and had a personal motive for that. She believes that AA has changed in part to the mandates. People just participate on a minimum level to get something they want beyond sobriety - to get their children back or to remedy a drug court, something that shouldn't be in AA to begin with. And then they are gone when the heat is off. The change in EP has to do with the large meth situation in NM and west Texas.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:15
I never got dressed up for meetings, nor did anyone else.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:07
Yes, it was very different "back in the day." One meeting per week was the norm. Coffee after the meeting was all that made it worth going to the meeting (guess that has not changed). Sponsorship was something you could take or leave. I did get a sponsor at one point, but we did no nonsense like the steps. She was really just a friend to me. Her name was Dottie, and what I most remember about her was that she said "I didn't know you could move like that." (Referring to some goofy AA dance).

That's what massive always says too
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 07:40
It works that way now, too. If you are dissatisfied with how a group operates via 4th tradition, find another one.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:09
Oh, BS. Clara, how long have you been in AA?
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:40
5 years, Kate, and yes, I have gone to different meetings for various reasons, and they are all different.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 09:32
Can any of you explain why when I say I never saw some of these shenanigans in meetings, the response I am met with is, "I never saw this in MY group! Ha ha ha ha ha!! Right!! Are you blind? Are you a zombie? Or did you just not care about anyone but yourself?", but Kate is met with, "Tell me about it, o wise master - what was it back in 'the day'?"
Man, you people are beyond the pale. Is it painful carrying around that double standard all day long?

Thu, 05/17/2012 - 09:37
Maybe because I thought Kate might actually answer the question and do so without descending to the world of mean-spirited attacks? Just a thought.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 12:59
I would be interested to hear your take on it too, Becket. You say it was different then. How? Do tell. I have honestly often wondered.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 10:02
you have not given me & I'd guess others any reason to trust you or anything you write. You have no creditability & it's way to late for you to be trusted in any capacity.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 12:50
I'm wracked with sobs to finally know that you don't trust me, patti.
Of course you don't trust me. I can see your transparency. And please, what is "creditability"?
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 13:15
you asked & we answered.
Thu, 05/17/2012 - 22:18
I don't think becket can answer the question. Instead, he or she points out a typo.
