    I am a recently retired UPSer, and just started posting on this site. I've lurked for a long time, but never felt that I would be safe posting while still employed.

    I'm primarily interested in Politics, and gravitated to this forum. I see that some members can post personal insults towards others with no consequences.

    I just got negative feedback and a comment from Tieguy. He left this comment:
    I think you should build a little credibility here before you decide to start attacking people.

    He left this regarding a post I made where he questioned the loyalty of the President of the United States:

    Originally Posted by tieguy View Post

    Of all the idiotic posts you've managed to put on this board, this one ranks number one.

    To even suggest that President Obama despises the United States of America is ludicrous and insulting to patriotic Americans.

    This is a bit overboard, even for you.

    I never personally attacked him, just the reasoning behind his post.

    Why is this posters bad behavior tolerated when others comments aren't?

    Wow! After reading the comments between the two of you, I was saddened.....but then his personality seemed to fit some of those in Management....or Mismanagement. You did your time, now enjoy your retirement. YOU DAMN SURE EARNED IT :):peaceful:

    I am sure you are familiar with the oft repeated wisdom of not talking about politics or religion with mixed company :wink2:.

    If you decide to jump into the fray, you have to be prepared to expect the passionate responses that will surely be elicited.

    My suggestion is to grow a thicker skin and have fun with the verbal warfare.

    If that fails, simply put those who make your skin crawl on your ignore list :happy2:.

    Is this referring to tieguy or eJuste?

    If you had been lurking very long, you would know that tieguy thinks we pick on him and that we let other people like soberups get away with murder. :funny:

    tieguy is adept at walking right up to that line without stepping over it in terms of civility. You notice he did not call anyone an idiot ... just that if needed an idiotic comment, he knew who to ask.

    We've had many a discussion with tieguy about this inappropriate behavior and he behaves for a while but then reverts back to these shameful displays(although somewhat hidden from the light of the day because he did it in a reputation comment) Perhaps another intervention is needed:wink2:.

    if you read thru the enormous number of posts TIEGUY makes, you will see a pattern of re-used insults as his material is weak as a used tea-bag.

    If you view TIEGUY like an empty sandwich, you cant be offended.

    He has all day behind the company computer to express his personal opinions on this board and he must be very lonely.

    no one is ever going to accuse you of missing your production goals:wink2:

    I'm friends with most moderators here. Overall I think they have done their darnest to be fair. I never cease to be amazed that you on the other hand have taken your role into a completely different dimension as evidenced by this post.

    Honestly if you wish to make posts like this one then I think you should step down as a moderator.

    Like the phrase referring to the baseball player Manny Ramirez, That's just Tieguy being Tieguy....Tie's in the 10,000 post club, the "Conservative dominated "Current Event's" click refer to him as the "big man on campus". He will always get the last word unless he's hospitalized. Most of us are not worthy :bow: to spend as much time behind a keyboard and monitor. At least not since they discovered Cialis...:wink2:...Maybe that's what Tie needs..

    Steve...Just wondering....Are you saying how cute the crying baby is, or how cute Brett's insult was to calling Ejuste a Cry Baby? :wink2:

    Susie and Robert from Arizona do lurk here under frequently created ID's.
    I'm about 90 pecent effective in finding them when they pop up.

    Your jealous admiration is duly noted.

    I'm always 100% because Robert sends me an email with a heads up before he does it!


    Just wait, you're in for a real surprise very soon!

    I'm not surprised. Some people are very plotting and vindictive.

    I hope you weren't helping him with the plotting since I got the best of him everytime he showed. :surprised:

    :wink2: Relax !! Take a deep breathe !!!
    I am sure that this is not news to some of the "regular" posters --particularly in the Current Events section.
    Politics has become a contact sport --in the real world --not necessarily here in the cafe.
    I see very passionate and thoughtful posts daily --with a good blend of "tongue and cheek"
    If you feel that someone has offended you ---I would suggest some private messages between you to clear the air.
    I believe overall the moderators do a good job --but if they had to delete or reprimand everything that could be "taken" as a personal attack ----we would have very few posts or people in the cafe . Smile and move on.
    I have obvoiusly disagreed with some posts aimed in my direction --I have done as I stated above --and just moved on .
    I love a free flow discussion from many different backrounds and viewpoints --with a large dose of humour and a pinch of sarcasm !!!

    Relax --enjoy your retirement and the cafe --If UPS did not kill you --the cafe and Tieguy never will !!!
