I did not mean to start some sort of argument over a former BabyPips member, hence why I did not
mention him at all: it was a reflection on something and a wish for civility on and off this site, among
current and former users.
I appreciate also that we can all make errors of judgment, and that people should be given at least
a second chance to make amends; also, what one person deems offensive may not be deemed thus
by another; finally, one member may be considered a ‘trustworthy/nice’ person for ages, then make
some derogatory or off-the-cuff remarks and newer users may not know all the good that he/she may
have done prior to his/her latest comments/actions.
Moral of the story: I am old enough to look after myself and to know how to avoid negative people,
so this was not a post (as some may have interpreted it) to get sympathy because I had been emotionally
scarred, rather, I wanted to share a personal reflection on something that undoubtedly is a fact of life
affecting most of us from time to time, simply put, coming across a person whose behaviour we find
Of course I appreciate the messages of support hugely, and they give me renewed hope in humanity,
but I should make it clear that my own self worth does not depend on being liked by a former/banned
member of this community.
Peace and prosperity to you all!
