First of all, the reason there are no trolls on ansy's forum is that you cant just sign on and post like you can tp. You have to be approved and I know people who have tried and have been rejected. So the process is different and not so easy. One post wonders are easily discouraged. And yes, we had trolls before those people mentioned and had trolls after. So, whats your point, if you have one.
Secondly, of course there is no ranting and ravingon TF, everything is in the private folder, which makes all look nice and clean on the board. How is that different from here, its just in another place. Most of the rants here aren't even started by regular tp members.
We have been doing the SAME THINGS to each other. There have been more spies in our chatroom than we can count, and you say there is a spy over there, kind of a double agent, lol. So how does it make either side innocent? At least people on our side haven't been making up phony stuff.
I started this truce thing and now I'm sorry I did. Its created more of a mess than ever. All I wanted was an end to the name calling and mud slinging. I didn't invite anybody back. Banned people were banned for a reason and if you want back, thats between you and admin, has nothing to do with the truce. I was just hoping for a situation where we leave each other alone and move on. But I guess there are people that would be pitifully bored if that happened.
Lalayla, I agree. That is why I started this thread, was because I was sick of the fighting here on TP about the other forum and whatnot. I thought maybe if we all agreed not to talk about it anymore, that maybe all this would calm down. Oops..wrong...lol Sorry guys for starting this thread. I promise it was based on the best of intentions as I like people on both forums. Guess it didn't work though :(
I think I'm gonna throw in the towel and not try to mediate anymore..not very good at it, lol.

Lalayla, first let me say that you are FLAT OUT WRONG and this is how stuff gets started. The admin over there does not have to approve anyone. Anyone can sign up and post immediately if they want. You need to get your info from a reliable source and give a better explanation as to why there are no trolls there because what you just said is 100% not true. As far as I know, not one single person has ever been rejected over there, not one. There has only been three banned members and one was recently (and wasn't a member here as far as I know). The other 2 were GinaH (who is now back over there under a new name) and AceyFacey who was banned for spamming the board. Thats all I am aware of, but someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Whats my point? Maybe you should read my other post again. I believe my point came across loud and clear. There were tons of trolls here before any of those people ever knew about this place. It just seems convenient for people here to blame them when stuff happens, and you all WONDER why stuff keeps going?
The fact that is ISN'T going on over there and IS going on here is enough of an explanation for me.
"I think I'm gonna throw in the towel and not try to mediate anymore..not very good at it, lol. "
That's what I do, Huntersmom. I thoroughly enjoy both sites and it's easy to do so while posting or replying to anything other than the "war between the forums" threads. I decided to let whoever wants to argue back and forth just go ahead and do it, and do it without me. Late at night I sometimes do read though! LOL
I think both forums should ban together and go over to the "2 Peas In A Bucket" forum (the scrap book forum) and get the desparate housewives all in an uproar again. The recent one about the pit bulls was probably the most fun they have all had in a long time. :=)
There has only been three banned members and one was recently (and wasn't a member here as far as I know). The other 2 were GinaH (who is now back over there under a new name) and AceyFacey who was banned for spamming the board. Thats all I am aware of, but someone correct me if I'm wrong. -------------------------------------------------------------- Wrong Snakebite! I was not banned two times just once only out of spite! And if you new anything at all you would know that I deleted my account there after only posting 4 times! and I didnt sign up under a different name I used GinaH5 I wasnt trying to hide anything.Besides why not sign up over there and irritate a few people? Banned members of TF do it all the time here!
Where did I say that you were banned 2 times? Must have missed that one.
You did use a different name to sign up. You were GinaH and when that was banned you signed up as GinaH5. Last I checked, those were 2 different names.
So what you are saying is that you signed up, after being baned, posted a few times, and then left?
GEE, that sounds like a troll to me. Isn't that the same thing they are accused of here? But you all say that you never do that to them? At least you admitted it.
I have seen jawlaw sign up with aname very similar to her own so that people would know who she was. SHe came here and didn't start trouble but got banned again. Why? Because she broke the rules, right? Isn't that exactly the same thing YOU did over there?
Snakebite since you apparently love TF so much and despise TP why do you spend so much time here? Everything has actually been running pretty smoothly around here until recently when you "AKA" as the Dogsitter decided to start trouble. You just can't stand the peace can you?
Ok, I am going to reply once only because it's back up at the top of the crap file! I agree huntersmom but I can see now it's never going to happen!
Lalayla: "I started this truce thing and now I'm sorry I did. Its created more of a mess than ever. All I wanted was an end to the name calling and mud slinging." I also agree,as I wanted an end to all the B.S. too but I can clearly see it's not going to happen! It's back to childsplay & I am frankly sick of this! Both forums were fine until all the B.S. accusations started flying over here again like a bunch of school girls! TP did not start again by the way. It was the crap about not believing Scout's accident that was already down & trying to make it all look it was made up! Pauleeze! Give it up already!
Dogsitter: "No one from where I can see is ganging up on cricket mom but she is the only one who refuses to post and agree and is banning people which is causing a bigger problem." B.S. again! They are absolutely ganging up on her. Frankly she's being smart about not posting & is staying out of it all this drama which is what I should have done long ago. I tried to make this work but I clearly see it's not going to.
Snake Bite: "1) Go to TF and tell me when's the last time you see a post about TP on there. It is OLD." Oh this morning & it has been deleted or moved already into the infamous "TP" folder like she new admitingly where it belonged. That's what the folder was designed for.
"2.)It really does appear that the members of TF could care less about all of this. Its water off a ducks back to them." Then what in the crap are you doing over here? Oh & about your statement on YTrolls......they are tracked by IP's by the way.
This place is a mess because the members here keep starting threads about something that doesn't even exist. I just don't get it." It only became a mess as I stated before after all of the bogus accusations about Scout not really being in a wreck. So see it's clearly not one sided on the truce on TP side! I certainly never saw Ansy saying what she wanted between the two forums or I missed it. Some on TF just can't let it die either! I'm done!
GinaH, you think I am also DogSitter? lol, Shows how much you know.
Rhonda, I agree that members from both sides have said they want a truce, and thats good, but I haven't seen everyone involved commenting on it.
Honestly, why does there even need to be a truce? If every single person here (and there) worked out their differences, someone else would just come along and start trouble. Then it would all start over again.
From here to eternity, every troll here at TP will be blamed on members of TF, so really, what is the point of a truce?
It sounds great and would be a nice thing, but it will never work. Some neutral person who never even was involved in all of this would just come along and stir it up again.
