grow up.... don't appear to be a 10-year old kid on the internet...
Well, it wouldn't hurt to ask how old Kawaiicat is...would it surprise you if she were ten years old? I've noticed (thanks in part to the pics thread) that there are a whole lot of very young folks milling about here. A few thirteen year olds for certain...most mature for their age, but maybe we've run across one who is actually acting her age? We do have a very diverse and wide ranging aged forum here. Just thought I'd introduce the thought.
kawaiicat for some reason seems to be like this *evil* user. maybe it's intentional, maybe it's not intentional.... acting like a 10-year old AOL user.... not reading the rules, asking questions that could be answered with a simple search of past articles, who knows what else...
Again, other than the personal preferences mentioned about the color text and multiple postings, I haven't seen her post any "trolling" type behavior unless you can elaborate on the "10 year old AOL user" comment (never been on an AOL chat but I've heard stories). Has she posted inaccurate information? Yep. Posted ignorantly? Apparently. Immature? Aren't we all a bit goofy, at one point or another here. But is she evil as Akiru? C'mon. I've yet to see someone post conclusive evidence to back this claim up. Frankly I have my doubts that anyone can.
I feel the need to defend her to a degree because again, I just don't see a pattern of abhorrent behavior on her part during this whole episode. And so far, this fiasco isn't too far from a Salem witchhunt. No apologies to her so far either for the misunderstanding or the hurtful comments that she unjustly endured. I think she's a bit taken aback to defend herself...or maybe she just doesn't have my mouth, hehehe. I'm not pointing fingers because as I've been saying, I've been too busy to hang out here more often, but it's a shame something as simple as a mistaken identity had to come to this. It should be a lesson to her either way to toughen up a bit and not let anyone get to her just because they're not crazy about the way she posts. Like I said in another post, can't please everyone.
I think I also understand what you're saying. She apparently has needed a bit too much hand holding regarding certain issues that I'll assume have been repeated to her more than once. Although that is more than sufficient cause to bring to her attention and modify, that still isn't good enough reason to compare her to the caliber of troll that Akiru was (it seems like Akiru went out of her way to be a collossal pain in the arse). Kawaii isn't going out of her way...she's just royally confused and doesn't know why she's being ganged up on. Can't say that I blame her in that respect.
And Kawaiicat, it seems that the other lesson here is that you need to make an effort to demonstrate some maturity more often. Folks are happy to assist, but only if you've shown that you tried to help yourself first before turning to others here for help.
