PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"To Grammarisgood: In response to your private e-mail"
Grammarisgood writes 11/6/03:

"Correct me - Roger Ebert: I noticed and you used a few words incorrectly and thought you might be embarrassed if you used them incorrectly in front of, say, your boss. To wit:"

No embarrassment, even in front of my boss. I do not write professionally for a living, and my boss would probably find it quite amusing as she is as laid back as I am..... most of the time.


"1) It is not a "Napoleonic" complex - it is a Napoleon complex, but they WERE the Napoleonic Wars.
2) Your original sentence reads: "He wants to break away from the stigmata of his physical appearance." Stigmata is not the word to describe a social problem - stigmata is what people who have wounds on their hands like the wounds Jesus was supposed to have after he was taken down from the cross. Stigma, on the other hand, is what you meant, i.e. "There is less social stigma associated with wearing trucker hats now that Ashton Kutcher has made them cool."

We write casually in this forum, as if you were having a conversation. We sometimes even create new words, group words together to form new words, and even turn adjectives into nouns. We are not writing a formal thesis or doing rocket science here. It's just cross-table banter... all in fun. If I misspellll a word or two here and theree, give in to a run-on sentence or fail to convey my meaning as clearly as I should have to the reader, it's all open for discussion, even the bad reviews.

Stigma or stigmata? Hmmmm, to make pleural or not to make pleural. I am here to tell you, that social stigmata not only exists, but is alive and well. I am the mother of an autistic child, so social stigmata slaps me in the face on a daily basis. The use of the 'new' term social stigmata is the perfect way for me to explain how I feel when the moron in the check-out line at the Supermarket looks at my 8-year-old son with disgust just because my son doesn't fit in with what he considers to be socially acceptable behavior. By today's standards, I am raising a geek/nerd, and I couldn't be happier about it, and I'll be the first to remind you.

"It is precisely because you have a nice vocabulary that I pointed out these two miscues on your part. Other than that, I couldn't follow the summary at all, given that you seemed to be confused by previews and what was actually happening."

I thought I followed it quite well. It was pretty much a play-by-play of everything that was happening, and if was truly that bad, RTVW probably wouldn't have accepted it. You should be more specific with how I was "confused by the previews and what was actually happening."

Hi Guppin, I was going to respond to you by another private message, but then realized that it might pop up here in public, again.

Just wanted to say that some people might feel less inclined to send you messages in the future, knowing they might end up being published in public.

Having said that, I still think you're a funny lady

Well, I'm sorry you were offended that I posted your e-mail. I figured, what's the harm, no personal information, and it was a compliment from you just after the bashing I got from GIG. At the time, it was just what I needed.

As far as posting the private e-mail from GIG, I needed a second opinion. It goes along the same lines as those I've seen in Off Topic like Diagnosis Needed or Living Arrangements. I think what GIG posted was rather harsh and unnecessary. I foolishly thought I'd get some support without back lash.

"some people might feel less inclined to send you messages in the future, knowing they might end up being published in public"

Well, since we never know who we are really talking to, it goes without saying that we should be careful what we write in private e-mails online anyway. Why should I have to sit back and take covert intimidation from someone like GIG. He puts the anal back in analysis. I've kept plenty of private e-mails private in the past, and I have used good judgement here as well. To me, what GIG did, was like a back door to violating the guidelines of this forum. If you're under attack in the future, you may draw from this experience yourself.

But, if I lose some e-mails in the future because we disagree, so be it. At least you'll always know where you stand with me.

10. "RE: To Grammarisgood: In response to your private e-mail"
It's not so much that you posted my message but that you posted GIG's also. GIG did send you the message privately and I believe it should have been kept private. GIG could have easily posted his/her comments publicly. I would hardly call what was sent to you bashing or intimidation. GIG did point out that you have a nice vocabulary. So, GIG didn't like or get your grammar or your summary. Not everyone is going to like the summaries that are posted on this board. Don't forget, you have received several public kudos for your summary.

"As far as posting the private e-mail from GIG, I needed a second opinion."

Why? Because someone wanted to correct your grammar? If you needed a second opinion so badly, you could easily have asked the general question "how does everyone feel about having their grammar/spelling corrected?"

"It goes along the same lines as those I've seen in Off Topic like Diagnosis Needed or Living Arrangements."

In all the times you've read "helping" threads on OT, have you ever seen anyone post someone's private email messages? I saw it once, and it was brought to that person's attention that it's not something people like.

"I think what GIG posted was rather harsh and unnecessary."

I agree with you that GIG's message was unnecessary. But, he kept it private.

"I foolishly thought I'd get some support without back lash."

So far you have received support judging by the responses. Backlash? Well yes. If you are going to post people's private messages in public without their consent, be prepared for some backlash. It's not going to be all good.

"Well, since we never know who we are really talking to, it goes without saying that we should be careful what we write in private e-mails online anyway"

I agree we should be careful of what we write to people. However, whether one writes something nice or bad in a private email, still makes it PRIVATE.

I've learned my lesson.

Oh yeah, you did ask.

I have to agree with Schnookie on this. You could have posted the same question, without posting that email. You could have even posted the email without the name attached, if all you wanted was an opinion. Instead, it looks like you are begging for support against GIG's opinion. I think it's a cheap, lynch-mob type tactic. GIG didn't want to embarass you by posting his opinion of your summary on the boards. You should have given him the same courtesy. YMMV.

Dear Wicked,

Wow, how do you determine that others have more faults from a few comments? I gotta learn that trick. I'll ask around at church and see if they know some moral indicators like that.

Did you think that I was criticizing you? I'm sorry. I just was pointing out an inconsistency and it seemed kinda funny/silly, like when you see a potential punch line and you just can't refrain from finishing it.

Besides, weren't you criticizing the other gals? Does that mean that my comment was your payback? (*logically trying to think this thru*) I don't deny your right to be upset, although I don't see why you were. However, your comments to them CAN be construed as insulting other posters personally (against our rules in the guidelines, in case you have'nt read them all yet). Why do they need to grow up? Do they seem immature to you?

I thought, imho, that Schnookie and True were merely trying to Caution Gup, as a friend might honestly tell you when they notice a potential problem, before it turns into a bigger mess. I would have done something similar to Schnookie's, although I loved reading Gup's response to Gig - nicely put.
And that doesn't take away from what a great poster Gup is.

If you think that was mean, I guess that you haven't seen very much yet. And I don't understand why you would react to that with meanness of your own. You could simply say that you were disappointed in what they said to her and explain why.

(*cue 80's music*) People are people so why should it be?

You are new here, Welcome to the Reality TV World Forums.
I don't know if you are familier with other message boards, but some can get rather nasty in tone, and aren't very friendly to new members. This board is different. We welcome new people and appreciate fresh voices. We do however have rules, that is why these boards have been around as long as they have been , and are as enjoyable as they are.

Please check out the Guidelines ( they are posted at the top of every forum)

Here is a link
http://community.realitytvworld.com/boards/DCForumID33/87.shtml

We Bash reality tv contestants here, NOT other posters. And you might notice in the rules that alternate ID's are also not allowed. ( just in case)

You can absolutely dissagree with another member of these forums, but it's a rule that you do it politely and without personnal attacks to another member.

I hope you feel comfortable expressing your opinions in the future, and dissagreeing with another poster is permitted here; slamming someone else isn't.

Slamming contestants of Reality Shows though is encouraged.

He/she was kind enough to email you and didn't expect it to be published for all to see. We may have lost a good poster because of this, which would really suck. I have to agree with Schnookie and true here. Some things are left better in private so we have no board wars.

I've been recommending this site to friends of mine who also watch a few reality shows--and a bunch of us watched the rebroadcast of Average Joe last night. However, I am telling them that this summary of yours is not typical of most summaries. I've got to agree with a few others...it was incoherent and very difficult to follow. I can deal with a few grammar issues; it's the lame attempt at humor while sacrificing normal conventions of language that bother me. I hope my friends will keep coming!
