ASKING people to join a social media you started, only to turn around and use your position to attack them in a public forum, is sign of a sick mind. It’s under-handed, and needlessly mean-spirited. It is only compounded when a host wishes death on a member, and publicly defames or debases a known deceased loved one.
This behavior was exhibited yesterday in a Facebook group that I (for just the next few moments) am still a member of. That group, NFC East Anything Goes, was ostensibly started as a trash talk group, for fans of NFC East rival teams. It’s not unusual for debates to get heated, and names to be called when people get to debating. We’re big boys and girls. We can take that.
While the title does include the words “Anything Goes”, the Facebook platform that it’s hosted on, has conduct standards. It is for that reason that groups have moderators and/or administrators, to monitor member behavior, for when things go too far.
These “admins” have the ability to edit member comments, erase member comments, erase member posts, or if need be, remove members entirely from the group. So when I became aware of the group’s chief admin, completely crossing the line with one of my loved ones and insulting her late father, who was also a friend of mine, I wanted to (what can I put in print?) I wanted to communicate my feelings, non-verbally for a few minutes, with the admin.
Instead, I chose another route to exact my pound of flesh. I opted not protesting in the group (where my comments could be deleted.) I opted not to complain to Facebook (where he could use a new profile and reappear.) I opted not to “bully” him in another group we’re both in.
I simply opted to show the bully for what he is, for those who don’t know who they’re following. Here on this website, where he cannot take down what is posted. I opted to use his own publicly shared video. While I’m not allowed to COPY his video, fair-use allows me (or anyone) to SHARE a link to posted content.
So for as long as these links exist on YouTube, they will play here ON MY SITE, when you click them on. Here, get a look at the intellectual capacity of this 25 year old “man” who chooses to wish death those whom he asked to support him. It shames me that he is an Eagles fan, but it is what it is. This is what that looks like:
There’s more, but I figure this is enough to give you enough of an idea of why he LOST in his own group, and why he couldn’t cope with that. Apparently you can be a target for him, but don’t beat him at his own game, or you will have your comment removed, then be removed from the group, in an attempt to allow him to control the narrative of what happened.
Unfortunately for him, here is where I control the narrative.
As I said. For as long as his links remain shared on the Internet, you’ll be able to view them here, in a place where supporters are not attacked.
