Do you think any of these two members of another forum are guilty of personal attacks?

It looks like one of them took things too personally, and it wasn't Mr. Franklin.

I think member Allen is being a dick.

Thanks for the input.

I am "Benjamin" and was looking for objective opinions on the posts. My first post was partly tongue-in-cheek (via the "happy face"), but "Allan" still felt it was a personal attack.

The posts occurred last year. Since then, Allan has been trolling me. almost stalking me, on the other forum. I made a list of his trolling and might report them to a moderator. After looking more deeply at his trolling, I think his temper and ego are really symptomatic of some deeper emotional problem, so I haven't reported him yet.

Wow! this is the truly dark side of social media and forums. People with pent up anger and or other emotional issues use the cowardly anonymous tool of these forums to live out their need to feel powerful and assertive. Many have jobs where they have to just do what they're told but think they know better. They resent any authority and can't say or do what they really want to because of their boss or the rules they don't like so they lash out at others. I don't have a framed certificate on the wall for going to formal school a few years for this but have a 45 year degree dealing with the public in customer service and supervising large numbers on a crew. I know the type. Sounds like the classic bad seed thorn-in-the-side in a union that's constantly filing grievances and requiring disciplinary action only to have the unions bail them out. They are selfish, not team players and everything is about them. Brings back not so fond memories. :wink:

I've encountered those types on gaming forums as well. I was part of a Battlefield 2 clan and we got a member who started fine and then began attacking members in posts; really off-the-wall vicious stuff with no basis on anything. Just pure meanness. He took it further by entering our online server, joining us on the team, and then team-killing all of us to throw the game. We suffered with that prick for over six months before we got his Battlefield account banned by the developers.
