OK - Enough is enough re: ning

Recommended Posts

A post on ning, Confessions of a Ning Member said:  '" a circulating email of us old timers from Ning were asked to ban together and attempt to create trouble for Ning's new management via postings on CL and Ning  to make Ning look bad to the community.  The post this morning by Judy Sacco is confirmation of such a plan."

That is absolute BS.  I never got such an email from CL or was asked to be part of such a plan.  I resent being characterized this way.  I am not part of a plan to destroy ning.

Nor was I and my name was mentioned as well. It was a question you asked which should have been responded to in a reasonable manner.

I never heard of any such email and I suspect this alias person is one of the JLM people. Just my guess.

Ning member(s), Peter Stryker, doesn't know the difference between coup and coop!  He/she/they continuously make the same error in each exceedingly defensive reply.

I googled him to find that the name Stryker is one of the most famous gay-porn stars of the 1980s and '90s!   LOL !

I have a confession, I am a past member of Boquete Ning, (using alter ego now) and a current member of Chiriqui Life, (CL) I flew the coup so to speak on Ning when a circulating email of us old timers from Ning were asked to ban together and attempt to create trouble for Ning's new management via postings on CL and Ning  to make Ning look bad to the community.  The post this morning by Judy Sacco is confirmation of such a plan.  Attack Ning management on the forum (IE. taking down the notice of assistance for Marion Clamp) versus a more thoughtful approach by Judy via email inquiry to its management directly.

I can no longer be around the hypocrites of CL; If one notices, there is not a visible offer to help Marion on CL homepage anywhere, (although, they take their headline to promote their 1 month anniversary)  and no members on CL complain to Bud & co., but those few like Judy and Joanne have no problem attacking Ning, versus thanking Ning for making their homepage a charitable notice for the past month to the community for Marion Clamp.  (and Marion is my friend). 

The majority of CL's content is centered on "Ning disgruntled s" so to speak and why those CL members got banned or volunteered to leave Ning. The conversations are childlike adolescents, upset because someone stole their toys. 

For god's sake, try to be nice and realize Boquete Ning owes nothing to any of us, all members are and always have been registered guest(s). Ning has the right to terminate anyone, any time they wish for whatever reason.  Lee suspended at least 100 previous members since I enrolled in 2011, so what, it was his right just as it is also JLM's currently. It is a shame I cannot use my true registered name on this post, however I would be besieged for abandoning the group, lose friends and or banned from CL.  My hope is Ning prevents these type of attack posts from continuing in the future. It is not constructive for our community. Peace in Boquete among neighbors would be a good goal, especially for us who are getting at the end of our life cycle.

This is incredible.

I read that post at Boquete Ning and I could not believe what I was reading.  I cant understand how adult and mature people can post such things about gossips, hearsays, rumours and false statements.  

First thing is that the person qualify all the members of CL as a bunch of bitter and hypocrite people that are working in a conspiration to destroy Boquete Ning.   Please.   That person also write about a letter, email or whatever form of communication among the CL members to start a plan of creating trouble at Boquete Ning. 

The person who posted that is using a nick name for not to be identified and not being banned from CL.  So he/she will be around just to post false statement at Boquete Ning.   She criticized the fact that nothing in CL shows any message about helping Marion Clamp, and she claims is Marion Clamp friend.   Everybody is Marion Clamp's friend. 

The most interesting thing is that she closed the discussion.  My question is:  who is acting like a child or teenager with that post?  Is this a tactic of attacking themselves and blame other for getting the support they are not getting?  It is a tactic of talking trash about CL to stop the immigration of people to this site?  That reminds me the tactics used by the Nazi at WWII that they killed their own soldier and blame their enemies for the attack to justify any action they will take.

It is so sad to see old and mature people for a first world country involved in such kind of gossips, hearsays and that kind of misinformation stuff.

I do have the same opinion and suspect.

If absolutely nothing else in "Debbie Silverman's" missive made me have zero doubt that it was written by one of the multiple personality members of the new ning, it was this "factual claim"...

"Lee suspended at least 100 previous members since I enrolled in 2011."

Lee suspended very few members in almost 8 years.  He very rarely moderated ning, Fran did!

Bailing the sinking ship the only way they think might work.    How many times will they shoot themselves in the foot ?   It's so obvious it's incredible.

I have never posted anything disparaging about NING either on ning or on Chiriqui Life but I got banned today because I know Bud.

Probably half the town knows Bud; can they ban them all?

I have posted many things disparaging of the new .ning. I make no apologies, nor have I ever been contacted by ANYONE who is interested in some kind of  collaborative effort toward their demise. But frankly, that is not a bad idea. Thanks, Debbie, we'll get right on that. :-)

There doesn't need to be a conspiracy to try and destroy .ning. They are doing a great job of that all by themselves.  No help needed.

No one needs to make an effort toward ning's demise. The JLM management is doing a great job of it themselves.
