    Don't push your luck, Aianawa. We've been very generous with you. That would apply to a few other members too.

    Only Avalon? My mistake. I thought you wrote about being asked to leave other forums as well.

    This forum has already been whittled down to practically nothing Wind. I can understand it with Aianawa, as he's been off the wall and pushing it for a while now, but who else is in danger of being cause for it to be whittled down just a tad further?

    I think it's fairly obvious to anyone who has been reading the discussions here.

    While I'm at it, I remember the times when you still had it in you to write something constructive and non-confrontational here. You know, back when you seemed to be an actual participant. Debates can be healthy, but from you I've seen almost nothing else than complaints and jabs towards the moderators for the last year or so at least if not for much longer. You sure always like to pinpoint all the things that are negative or bad. Why do you keep coming here if everything we do is wrong, is it some kind of a fun pastime to do that? I suppose other forums are just much more pleasant to you and cater to your specific needs?

    I've been reading the discussions. Maybe I'm pulling a Biden here, but left to my own devices I can only think of modwiz as he is already currently on vacation. You said "a few others", and it's not obvious to me who they might be. Not trying to be a dick or give you a hard time, just asking for cards to be laid on the table if a moderator is going to come out all rock ribbed and say something like that.

    I don't think it's an unfair question being that you brought it up in in the first place with that thinly veiled public threat. Who else does this warning apply to? Am I on that list for example?

    That i am doing something that is deemed lucky to be doing , being myself is ok ?, i am pushing something ?, views beliefs data ?, as it feels horrible to me, is it because you feel something horrible from me ?, Horrible as it feels threatening, if so , what line has or was being crossed ?.

    Saying we have been genouress to me, because what ?, Q , data, beliefs, being to compliant lol as it feels like i turn the other cheek, do not leave and react as many have and push back with abuse, anger, pain or hurt ?.

    Feels horrible because for me it feels enforcing of, do what the square is or also i like Wind, respect Wind, enjoy Winds shares usually and learn from some of them, at a deep level, so feels hurtful when the energy ( maybe it is whats behind your words n feelings ) by you conveys threat.

    I will continue to be best me able, oh i wish to lash out as i detest misuse of power regards beliefs n religions n feelings but Eagles with soft feathers have wisdom of speed and strength of now.

    Yes yes is not misuse of power in your eye or mine as the feelings will transmute when ready, i love you beautifullll Soul will suffice for now.

    It's not a threat, just a statement that I made and I don't call the shots here either. You don't have to worry about yourself, Fred. There's no list. Mostly it was a statement for Aianawa. He keeps on pushing the limits all the time and also at times he is downright disrespectful even though we provide him with a platform. If it is so necessary to post bs here then it can be found where it belongs. This Trump era has been very tiresome in terms of knowing and finding the truth. People are buying into all kinds of cooky theories and conspiracies meanwhile here we at least try to have a modicum of common sense and a higher standard, as we hold the truth to be a virtue of it's own.

    I have no hard feelings towards you Aianawa, I do know that ultimately you mean well.

    Well man you're a moderator, so you do call the shots around here so far as average members are concerned. You mentioned a few others that were "pushing it" as well, so I'm happy to hear that's not actually the case.

    Claims of censorship over and over would qualify as pushing the limits. Claiming that you have to be on your knees would be another. Veiled insults, which seem to amuse, also would be included.


    Outlander used to post regularly, with crop circles and various other things. I don't know where he went.

    Frances is around but hasn't posted in quite some time. I miss the beautiful flowers.

    Joanne has eyesight issues and cannot post.

    Sooz moved on to other things.

    The list goes on.

    Most forums are smaller than the old days from what I can tell due to Facebook. And now Instagram. And Twitter. And more.

    Forums are pretty old-school.

    I've never been a member of Project Avalon. It has changed in the days since I started lurking and has leaned far to the right with stuff that used to be more on 4chan and 8chan. Not my flavor.

    Watching a 'woke' community embrace and extol the likes of Trump is pretty mind-blowing. Trying to talk about the reality of his leadership and being accused of bashing him, a poor excuse for not discussing issues, is weak and gets very old.

    But apparently there are plenty of folks that enjoy that stuff.

    Unforunately many of those have become toxic echo chambers and it's hard to have any fruitful conversations there. I don't write almost anything on social media as I use the platforms mainly just to follow some things or for contacts. I very much prefer forums over social media. Sadly it would seem that in the recent years even forums have had some unpleasant trends developing too and it tends to kill healthy discussions and debates. I don't think this forum is dead, but it has seen better days like Avalon too.

    It's been quite a big wake up call to see that unfold over the past few years. I probably used to have more naive view of communities like that, full of spiritual and "wise" people, yet even those communities succumb to hypnotism and cults. It's very sad and disheartening to see, but perhaps it teaches us something too. Spiritual people have their faults and blind spots too. Then again, Avalon has always been a very conspiracy oriented forum and once you fall into those rabbit holes, it might be hard to get out of them.
