Tonight I was on FIBS and I noticed a tourney starting, but I pretty well stay clear of yourneys these days for the reason that a certain number of TD's are not fair and generally behave obnoxiously. I kept my quiet and played my matches. Then socksey and diane see me shouting some inofrmation to someone who just got dropped. They start shouting "Hi" to me. I ignored them. Then the shouts turn to this (I went ahead and made the pertinent comments bold):

diane shouts: is that idiot jonjon keeping his head down still ??
resh_lakish shouts: diane what kind of sports team are the dodgers?
resh_lakish shouts: see if she knows her US geography
You shout: keep going diane...lets see if you shoot yourself in the foot...
mrbond shouts: gogo, are we linking up for lunch??
resh_lakish shouts: when is the london fibs orgy
resh_lakish shouts: ?
diane shouts: im an idiot - bound to happen :-)
webnut shouts: who wants to teach a noob to play
socksey shouts: hey you shithead, jonjon!  are you going to respond to my hi's or not?!
diane shouts: lol sockesy
vegasvic shouts: oh my
diane shouts: way to go girl :-)
vegasvic shouts: little heavy there sock

You shout: keep it up ladies...lets see how much you can screw yourselves...
diane shouts: well desreved tho :-)
moondog shouts:  ladies   ladies  ladies
Bondy waves goodbye.
diane shouts: lol
diane shouts: screwing myself was never needed

TourneyBot shouts: *** Round 2 of Adults only (this TD is drunk and will accept no blame for any mishaps along the way) (Tourney #868) has been completed! Round winners: Anakin, oskgrr, Balli, SQUALIDUS ***
socksey shouts: i offered olive branch and it was broken.  that's all.
diane shouts: theres always a bloke waiting to do it :-)
socksey shouts: or four
diane shouts: lol
moondog shouts: lol
TomnLosAngeles shouts: hey all
vegasvic shouts: i think there are thorns on olive branches sock
socksey shouts: i feel like a fight tonight.  can anyone tell?  heheheeheeee
TomnLosAngeles shouts: anyone for 3?
diane shouts: there werent
diane shouts: they grew whilst waiting for accept :-)

Then a few minutes later:


resh_lakish shouts: the write diane a haiku tourney
resh_lakish shouts: where to enter you have to shout a haiku about diane

mgnu_WClass shouts: Looks like atreyu dropped me! Would someone else like to play?
cordero waves goodbye.
TomnLosAngeles shouts: :-(
diane shouts: ***final 868 Anakin v Balli ***
cordero waves goodbye again.
caroline shouts: gl finalist
diane shouts: i bet jonjon could do one of those
Jujubee waves goodbye.
Jujubee waves goodbye again.
diane shouts: the challenge would be to not use the word idiot

Another example of these two TD's making problems in the community. Being drunk and nasty to other people is no way to be a TD and no way to represent the FIBS community to newcomers.

Then, there is the issue (for me at least) of being drunk and running tourneys

diane shouts:  *** Adults only (this TD is drunk and will accept no blame for any mishaps along the way) (Tourney #868) has opened for registration! Type 'tell TourneyBot tourney 868' for details. Register with 'tell TourneyBot register 868'. 1 pt matches, 3 pt final, starts in 10 mins, be ready to play, dont mess with me im drunk :-) ***

diane shouts: *** good luck all players - and tell me if you have troubles - cos i am too drunk to check up***[/b]

Diane pretty well makes the first argument for me...drunk people are more likely to be nasty and want to bicker and argue than sober people. Being a TD brings with it its share of bickering and arguing with participants. Drunkeness can not help the situation, only make it worse.

I promised Web that I would not make more trouble here on the board, so I will stop there. However, I will not tolerate being called names, and i will bring it to light everytime. I must defend myself and will. If you have something nice to say to me or about me, then say it. If you do not, then don't. Simple. Diane and Socksey, you just made my gag list, so don't bother.

Love,

JJ

Here are the hello shouts he choose to ignore... you would too - i am sure ..

socksey shouts: hey jonjon!  ;)))
resh_lakish shouts: hi socks
resh_lakish shouts: hi diane
resh_lakish shouts: hi easybeat
socksey shouts: hi resh! ; )))
resh_lakish shouts: mah shlomech caroline
You shout: hey - jonjon!!!

you know what jonjon - drinking and having fun on a saturday night is ok.  Yes i have drunk some - i am also very friendly right now - or perhaps i wouldnt have said hello!! (maybe) :D

The tourney went well - anyone care to disagree?? - it was fun - so were the people playing - a laugh - and well done Anakin !!

You also know what??

There are a heap of sites where people arent drunk ever - and play serious bg all the time - maybe that would suit you better - oh, but they need paying for - and we know you dont do that....

This is FIBS - and welcome to it - i will not ever pick a fight with anyone - and will help all who need it - but you pick one with me - yes - you are gonna know it.
Cos you know what - i dont give in to any bully ever - which is what made your intimidation allegations such a crock!!!!

Sweet dreams honey - glad you gagged me - the favour is returned  :D

thx gogogiz - always there being the nice guy  :D Wish there were more  :P

And what amuses me - is that the shouts are transient and can be ignored - but jonjon likes to make permanent his idiocy  :D

A few comments, just because I have a big mouth.

1. A personal disagreement with someone, or even between TDs has nothing to do with that person's status as a TD.

2. I have been around a lot of drunk people.  Some get nasty, some laugh a lot, some pass out, some just get really quiet.  To make a general statement that someone who is drunk is also nasty is just untrue.

3. I have not received a return hello in about 4-5 tries, but I don;t care enough to get upset about it.

Long live the drunken tourney!

Firstly - thx Port :-)

1. A personal disagreement with someone, or even between TDs has nothing to do with that person's status as a TD.

too true

To make a general statement that someone who is drunk is also nasty is just untrue.

equally true

. I have not received a return hello in about 4-5 tries, but I don;t care enough to get upset about it.

me either!!  I will survive  :D

Long live the drunken tourney!

For sure - whether it is real or just a joke - they will never know
 :D

I don't see how there's a question that socks and diane were goading and insulting jonjon.  He ignored their "hi" shouts, which IS allowed, so they proceded to rag him about it.  One called him an "idiot", the other a "shithead", to get things going.

Please inform me what jonjon did wrong.  Make it short so I can understand it.

This soap opera ends when we get an apology from jonjon for the three separate, uncalled for and completely unjustified insults he levelled at socksey and myself.  I would relate them to you - and the context - but that would involve revealing information from the TD cafe (which we are all forbidden to do), but i am sure some of them might suggest themselves  ;)

Unfortunately, if jonjon is the character i have so far found him to be - i dont expect that to be anytime soon.

If these are the kind of hate-filled threads dondon is going to start, he should be banned from doing so, just like his mentor.

I don;t understand the need to start a thread over this.  Why is it that agrieved people feel the need to start a thread and air a "somebody was mean to my incident"?

If you can;t ignore 2-3 sarcastic things said in shout I recommend you go over to gamesgrid where it is quiet.

Also, if the idiot comment could be considered a rock, I believe they were merely throwing back the rock that was thrown at them, if you take my point.

This is a personal disagreement that a) has nothing to do with tourneybot, so why it is here I don't know; B) has nothing to do with anybody else, so why is there a public thread?

We have had peace and quiet for weeks and weeks now.  Why start this?  Learn to live with the fact that some people just don;t like you.

The drunken voice of sanity, at last.  Thx Portikins! ;)))

I admit i was in a disorderly state of mind that night, so shoot me and get it over with.

Who started this thread, anyway?  

Enough said.

FIBS in it's entirety is not a friendly place of course, which is simply a reflection of the world in general.
Surround yourself with the ones that are friendly to you, and ignore the ones that are not, and it becomes a very friendly place!!!
 :beerdrinkers:

Or try my strategy: be friendly to everyone, and assume everyone else is being friendly towards you. If something sounds mean, it is probably said in jest and they are simply pulling your leg in a friendly way. I am particularly close to NIHILIST, Biggles, souptree, don, csg and dondon in this very way. Cheers Bros!! :beer:

To be honest, I could count the nasty people I met on FIBs on one hand.  Maybe I am drunk all the time, but I think 99% of the people on FIBs are decent souls.  It is the anonimity of the internet that allows all of us to act like children form time to time, which is fun.

The trick is not to take it serious!   :LOL2:
