Danny has effectively ruined this site... Someone get in touch with me when he is banned for good.

It's nice to see some rational posts here, lol, although the topic is not particularly relative to AA. Reasonable discussions do happen occasionally on the OP but it's mostly a pain to filter through it all to find anything that’s not related to individual personalities. Like you pointed out (Sue), it's not just about "sides" of the AA coin. Because of the freedom of speech policy here (actually it’s more of an unregulated society to which practically any behavior is acceptable), what has evolved is a "war" of which we won’t ever find out who/how it really started. I’m sick of it all as well, have been for some time, and although I don’t post or read here as much as I used to – I’m admittingly not an innocent. I’ve gotten caught up in the mess as well, which I don’t think is the norm for me. I think it’s likely that it’s not the norm for most of us. I’d like to point out to anyone that cares, that there has been a LOT of “activity” from a few people (not going to get specific either), that most members or readers are not aware of. Much of the reason that it isn’t discussed openly has to do with privacy issues and actually respect as well - if you can believe that, lol. Anyway, when buttons get pushed there’s often going to be a reaction. This isn’t an excuse really, but it does have an impact.

I am sure that is true, Avo. One poster indicated that the chatroom over at RFR runs riot and then the participants come over to OPF to act on it. I thought RFR was established to avoid this stuff, and then comes an admission as to what goes on there. I agreed with LisaMarie that there was probably a great deal of sharing over there about certain subjects and information. It makes no sense, but it shows that no one from OPF even has to be a member there to be able to take it over.
But is that fair to Orange, whom most agree that they feel on friendly terms?
Remember Christopher Stevens when you vote.

"It reminds us that we are to place principles before personalities; that we are actually to practice a genuine humility. " 12&12 p.192, Tradition Twelve
"Tradition 10 - Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy." Please follow orders from the Interchurch Center if you are an AA member and don't comment.

Did they teach you any when you got your Masters in Criminology?...lol.
" One poster indicated that the chatroom over at RFR runs riot " - Got any proof or was that heresay?
" then the participants come over to OPF to act on it." - Again, got any proof, or are you just making it up as usual?
"and then comes an admission as to what goes on there." - Sounds like you've got that admission in hard copy. Care to share?
" I agreed with LisaMarie that there was probably a great deal of sharing over there about certain subjects and information." - You agreed with Danny about something neither of you have any first or second hand evidence of? That sure sounds watertight...lol.
And from the above solid evidence you deduce that the OPF is controlling the RfR forum. I won't waste any more time making you look ridiculous. There is no way I could do such a good job as you do yourself...lol
Danny is currently "Rachel" - watch out folks, he's learned how to use a spell checker...lol

First hand source to the incident. Are you accusing the RFR member of lying in her assessment and decision to pull away because of said behavior, counsellor? Sounds as if she is the most mature of the bunch. I was trying not to personally name her, but I can see how much you want to know.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 08:39
It would appear that your EGO is again getting in the way of your reasoning. Keep your side of the street clean Clara. Principles before personalities, remember? You are becoming more and more less Spiritual with each and every post and falling into moral decay.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 08:45
My side is pretty clean, JR, and what can be cleaner is happening by the day due to the help of OPF et al.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 09:45
You can tell Clara anything in confidence and she will not drop you in it - unless she needs to to have the last word...lol What a joke this woman is. Take care what you trust her with. And thanks for outing the source of your info Clara - bet you've made another friend for life there...lol
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 10:04
Ben, you are still fishing buddy. What we know from experience about you, is you will lie at the drop of a dime.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 10:25
This was publicly disclosed on this board, Ben, by the party herself. Nothing told to me in confidence goes anywhere.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 10:32
but it has been now. I bet your conscience is completely clear. A complete lie, but in your mind it's the truth. Echoes of the narcissistic nature Bill W suffered with...lol.
As long as Clara feels OK, to hell with anyone else...lol
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 10:36
It wasn't Clara but it has been now? Is then when I do a Ben and start shrieking uncontrollably about what do you mean?
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:04
My post was in response to yours saying that "This was publicly disclosed". Got it yet, or shall I draw some pictures?...lol
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:48
Still waiting for an explanation Clara???
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:00
Vicky got reprimanded for lashing out at anti-aa people, because as we can see today she is right back to stalking, harassing and abusing Clara and myself with her friends.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:09
What are you talking about? Who reprimanded me? Danny I don't like frigging liars.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:24
Don't want speak to me Danny??? I have rang your number and funnily it's engaged....
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:26
Shows his true colours...lol
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:05
Maybe Ben does have to draw me a picture...
"Yup. It is very easy to get caught up in the drama around here. Especially when the drama jumps from the rfr chatroom to the op forum. When I felt that I was about to get wrapped up in the schoolyard antics, I pulled away and stopped posting here and stopped visiting the chatroom over there. It has been interesting to read these boards without participating. I've gained a new perspective."
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:23
Show us the proof Clara??? No-one has ever said anything negative about RFR. I want the proof.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:27
Clara give us a name
Persephone In Exile
Clara, what exactly are you trying to claim about a member of RFR here?
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:07
I can tell you she has not had any contact with me whatsoever. Also I have never said anything negative about RFR, I love that forum.
Fri, 02/08/2013 - 19:22
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:25
It's ok, just really pissed of with her. What the hell is she achieving by doing this??
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:45
Why would you think it had been you, anyway? You know what you post. These people are being irresponsible with you. Nowhere was it ever suggested by me that you have made derogotary remarks about RFR.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:51
As the Bill Wilson disease and her EGO inflates, Clara continues her relentless pursuit of self gratification through taunting, innuendo and lies on the Orange papers Forum. Her heart is racing, the endorphins are surging to whatever brain she has left and her cold clammy and sweaty hands continue to type on the keyboard. But she hasn't quite reached her peak, yet....
Stay tuned for the complete online moral breakdown.....
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:31
It's not getting weird at all. You replied to the posts so I am surprised that you cannot remember it. It was only yesterday, PIE. Vicky has had nothing to do with any of it.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:09
People are worried about security ya know.
AA is a religious cult dressed up to look like a treatment for alcoholism.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:12
Of course I am sure, No- way would I ever ever put RFR down, I even told mike how great it was. I have never emailed or spoke to anyone on opf only through posting on here. Has she told you this herself????
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:17
Not your fault. Clara the Bitch has been spreading doubts all day. She made it look like you, but it obviously wasn't. Notice she's pissed off a bit smartish...lol.
She'll be back as soon as she's worked out what lie to tell to cover it up. Usual scenario - and people wonder why this place is getting so toxic?
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:20
My god I have seen it now. That is terrible. What is her problem with RFR???? It's a totally different forum. I would never go the dark side fuck me I been there I came out the other side.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:22
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:47
No worries, that woman needs help desperately. If she is working a spiritual programme the I'm the fucking pope.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:07
Pish posh. I never made it look like Vicky at all. In fact, I went back and amended the post to remove the poster's name. Look what you are doing to her.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:12
Clara, I have been laughing my butt off. These people are clueless. Yet it still hasn't stopped them from ranting.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:13
You're just stirring up trouble, as always. I wonder if your husband knows that you sit around on the computer all day harassing people simply because they don't like AA. Better still... What does your higher power think of all of this? Surely, somewhere at the back of your mind, you must have the nagging suspicion that there is something inherently dysfunctional about your obsession.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:16
I wonder if you've ever really paid attention to your responses to those people on Craiglist that say similar things to you, Gunthar. I am retired, I can blog all day long if I want to. When people say things things to you, how do you react?
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:23
I stopped posting over there. You should do the same and stop posting here... Unless your higher power is driving you to obsess the way you do. Why don't you do an 11th step and see what old HP has to say?
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:30
Why did you stop posting over there, Gunthar? More importantly, perhaps the question to ask is why did you start? Then you brought the site over to RFR and tried to get them to go over there to set these people straight, but only Rainbow did. Why is that a productive mindset? How long will it last, anyway? You ahve no resilience. You stomp off OPF yet your are back within 3 days. You left Craiglist on August 2. You'll go back.
I meditate every day, Gunthar. I haven't been steered in another direction yet.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:36
of my time. I decided it would be better to hang out with like minded people. You are making that impossible to do. Every thread over here is about you. I'm beginning to think that you are nothing more than an attention whore. You love this shit, don't you?
As to your allegations about me, supposedly going over there and inviting members from another forum... Please provide some evidence, or shut the fuck up! Let's suppose for a minute that what you say is true... Who gives a fuck? You are the only one who cares.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:57
Gunthar, I won't be quiet about that because it was there. It just showed me the importance of screenshots because there isn't even neough integrity to admit it. I wouldn't have known to find you there if I hadn't read it myself. The sole reason I care is because it is typical of the Anties to rally a cry to arms to a site because it is basically bullying behavior. Let's go and set these people straight? Massive and her 'let's go let her have it!" It is just who you people are... Anti went to the Washington Post article that was linked here as well, and got her pants creamed. All the while she was protesting her right to post as she chose. This is the sole reason I care, Gunthar. And if they did post remarks that they falsely attributed to you on Craigslist, how do you justify doing the same thing to others? You and JR often rewrite my posts to suit your purposes. This, sir, is why I give a darn.
You, sir, can post all day long because you are disabled. I, otoh, are retired so I should be doing something more constructive with my time than blogging. The contradictions are amazing... and entertaining. But let me ask you, Gunthar, if you had known that there could be a positive resolution to all of the gunk that people insisted on posting on OPF, would you have been so keen to do it? I have already gotten a return on your efforts and I don't have a reason not to expect that there could be more. What did you expect to gain from those efforts? I've been lauded for my handling of it so I believe that your expectations had been much different.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 14:02
24/7 coming to a blog near you.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 14:05
Well, Gunthar, this is what happens when people create forums, blogs, polls and the endless posting. It's amazing to me that no one seems to accept a role in it.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:29
As the baffling, cunning, powerful fake Spiritual Disease devised by the con man Bill Wilson takes hold, Clara becomes full of anger, resentment and moral failure, falling deeper into hitting a Spiritual bottom than she ever has before.
Will she eventually see the light and quit stalking people on Internet forums?
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:47
No, Gunthar, I never did allude, suggest or imply that Vicky every made derogatory remarks about RR.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:14
You have passed the boundaries of deceit. It starts with a bowl of crab bisque soup and a single shot of sherry. But since you have a disease and are completely powerless over Alcohol according to the religion of Bill Wilson, it slowly turns into a bowl of sherry with a shot of crab bisque soup. Then once the ccunning, baffling, powerful urge to relapse takes hold....... you go on the Orange Papers Forum and bring the cult of Alcoholics Anonymous under scrutiny it can not handle.
Welcome to the Stepper Zone....
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:15
Give me a name who have said this.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:19
Vicky, I never said it was you. I never suggested tacitly that it was you. I originally posted the name of the poster, but I thought better of it and edited my remark. She isn't saying anything BAD about RFR, but she is suggesting what goes on in that chatroom. Drama and more drama.
Sat, 08/18/2012 - 13:10
Vicky, this is the CULT OF RFR speaking to you here.
YOU WILL DO AS GUNTHAR SAYS OR YOU WILL BE ACCUSSED AND CONVICTED OF GUILT. DON'T YOU EVER SPEAK OUT AGAINST RFR AGAIN. RFR MEMBERS DON"T DO THAT. THEY ARE DEPENDANT, WEAK, LONELY, PROBABLY STILL USING. SO THERE MINDS ARE RAW, OPEN AND READY TO BE FILLED WITH THE PROPAGANDA RFR HAS MANUFACTURED.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND.
GUNTHAR JUST TAUGHT YOU A LESSON RFR STYLE BY ACCUSING YOU OF BACKSTABBING IN FRONT OF EVERYONE HERE. THERE IS A REASON HE CHOSE TO DO IT THIS WAY, CONTROL, HE WANTED TO DEMONSTRATE THAT HE CONTROLS YOU, HE IS IN CHARGE. YOU WILL SURRENDER TO HIS CULT.
Vicky run and join a site where no one tries to control you with guilt.
