nate turned over a new leaf and becoming sociably acceptable in MA. and nate was fairly viscious and as prolific. how or why he changed, who knows, but it is a general miracle.
fufu elected to leave after being asked to learn what he was doing wrong or simply modify his posting behavior. he was just an older gentleman who didnt have the social skills to understand proper interaction, annoying, but generally benign.
targaped is just as prolific and annoying, but not viscious like nate was. like fufu, he may lack the social skills to discern his transgressions, or he chooses not to understand every social faux pas. he has few good things to say at times, loves his moped, and potentially could be a constructive member of the community, but only if he chooses.
nate chose to learn. he stumbled at first, but he eventually figured it out. many do not recognize the name he uses now, and accept him wholeheartedly. a few have forgiven him. others are still wary. however, he is now MA socially acceptable.
fufu chose not to learn and chose not to modify his posts (no more than one post per thread. no new threads that are non moped related). faced with his inability to fit in and inability to change, he quietly and simply moved on.
targaped, from the responses in this thread, chooses not to change or learn, or doesnt know how. perhaps he is unable to see himself. age does not always endow one with maturity. he certainly hasnt shown maturity in his behavior. i believe that there still is a possibility for him to change/learn.
harold has limited time. for harold to chase targapeds threads down, and delete them as he did with nate would be horribly time consuming. targapeds notes of late are aimed at harold and a few others, who can handle themselves. nate was spewing filth on everyone.
if the MA community wishes to stop targaped, then shunning him may be the only way.
1. dont respond to any non moped or negative thread.
2. ignore his threads, dont even open them, dont waste your time of emotion
this would save harold some time if we all did this.
targaped may learn which behavior is acceptable if we only respond to him positively when he deserves it.
