    Culture of Fear

    Why is there seemingly a "Culture of Fear," on Teak Door? People post topics of interest to themselves in hopes that other posters will somehow respond in a positive manner or in a fashion that is not opposed to their thinking.

    There seems to be a lot of posters who go ballistic at the hint of opposing viewpoints. When its all said and done we're all anonymous personalities here or suppose to be.(Exceptions not to be named.) Why get your knickers in a twist over a point that really lasts less time than it takes you to travel to the Mr. Crapper and back?

    Make your point, don't slander his/her carnal dignity, point of origin, unless it applies to the subject being discussed and lastly don't talk about anyone's mother/wife (sometimes one and the same in LOS) or iPad 3. (Couldn't resist it.)

    FFS, I really resent being one upped, but that's part of the game here and there's really no rules here unless your a MOD. or an overly sensitive type. For the latter, don't post just read. Or Post at your own risk!

    Could you name any of this "Culture Club" members?

    Those that in your opinion stick out and those you consider that have a chip on their shoulder?

    'Culture of fear'? Are you kidding? It's the exact opposite.

    It's a 'culture of anonymity'- the ability of weak people to talk shit to total strangers in an anonymous, consequence-free way that they would never have to balls to do in real life (at least not with people with whom they weren't friends).

    You're a Seppo/Limey/Frog/etc? Then you must be an asshole, and your opinion has no merit based solely on that fact.

    You bought a product I don't approve of (or can't afford)? You're a complete fool and I'm going to keep posting the same stupid shit until you either have to abandon your own thread or respond in kind.

    You posted a non-judgmental, non-flaming thread in a forum section where flaming and bullshit is prohibited? Too bad- fuck you- I'm going to shit all over it.

    Etc, etc, etc.

    It's a 'culture of utter lack of respect' because some people need a place to show their true selves- I of course don't mean everyone, but the same posters get involved the the shit-fights time and time again.
    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Less on TD but on TV you missed. I bought a product I either need to tell everyone about or I bought a product and I really need someone to validate my choice.

    Possibly, but, personally, I like to hear about the stuff people buy in LOS- sometimes it encourages me to buy something similar (sometimes I think it's worthless crap, but I don't have to 'piss on someone's parade' to make myself feel better)- the threads re: product purchases often turn into a place to read about valid, real-world reviews as well as alternate choices and good deals.

    I wonder..... no..... but maybe they find it passes the time or something

    there is nothing like a good cup of coffee and annoying a tdious bloke who gets wound up easily

    TD needs the shitfights so that it's tarnished reputation can survive; without them, it would be too anodyne

    having said that, there are too many posters who start calling people names too easily, like "fool" "moron" retard" "french" etc

    maybe that could be cooled
    I have reported your post

    I think that Teakdoor is tame considering what it was like a few years ago.

    Theres only a few dudes that continue giving each other shit, cant be bothered really as theres no point to it.

    We're all pretty predictable and if you think someone's an arsehole today, you'll almost certainly think the same tomorrow so just put them on ignore.

    My new Kindle Touch is great. I'm reading my second book on it now (From Here To Eternity). I read 2 or 3 hours at a stretch - no eye strain at all. I also downloaded for free from another site about 30 books yesterday, plus the current weekly or monthly editions of four or five magazines. On-line instructions for Kindle use are easy to follow. I had one question about a function so I sent the Help line an e-mail, and got back a detailed response about six hours later which sorted the problem.

    Agreed, totally uncalled for vulgarity, but there are other boards where uncalled for vulgarities are not allowed and would result in an instant ban. One of the good thinks about TD is that you need to post a pic of a cum dribbling hampton wick to get banned. My point is why is the OP whining on here when he can easily go to another board?

    They will be on any torrent site- the problem is sometimes finding a format that looks perfect on the Kindle (a PDF doesn't look quite right, i.e., but you can find nearly everything in that format).
