Is it a sin to start a forum thread

    With a leading question designed to shove your right to have an opinion on what others should be doing with their body down everyone's throat and then claim to have been "just asking a simple question"?

    What do you religionists think? Is this what god wanted you to do instead of living by example rather than preaching "do as I say, not as I do"?

    lol

          Scarves worn in that fashion tends to exude power and mystery---sort of like religious zealots do.  It the old west movies all the bad guys wore them.  What do you think?

              I'm sure I can make it down where you live. Trust me, old man. As for the price, That's about $22. Give or take. I'm into designer stuff really. I never get knock offs. I'm kinda loaded. Not all Africans wear knock-offs you know. I know its way beyond you. But Just watch any good rap video - you'll get it, old man.

                LOL - Yeah sure. A typical Louis Vuitton scarf will cost about $500.  I know because I just bought my wife a $1200 purse from the Paris store. lol

                Fakes - $22 sounds about right.

                And it ain't me you understand - a black man wearing a mask is not going to finish walking down the street in the South of France. wink

                  You can get a TYPICAL LUIS V for just that amount I told you in any designer boutique. Of course there abides the very very extravagant ones. But As much as I'm into Luis V and all I wouldn't pay above 50 for a scarf. But the jacket. That's a different story though. And like I said, I'm pretty sure the South of France will be a walk in the park for me. I'm quite sure. I've seen dead people. No kidding.

    Just popping in to say that weraing a scarf or bandana like that means gang related where I live.  You need to chill for a bit there, k?  I am not sure what you are trying to prove but I have to honestly say that I liked you alot better before you starting bickering with Mark.  Age and wisdom rules. Peeps are probably wondering why you start such controversial threads, then get offended.  Stick to writing hubs, it works better for ya.

    FieryCJ, This is an honest question. What do you get out of goading Mark? You could make such a good impression here on HP. Instead you go out of your way to insult someone who has friends and influence here. Is that just how you like to operate? Go write a hub.

      I'd also like to know the answer to this. He's called Mark "old man" "sissy" and told him "his time is gone" What's with all the allusions to age? What has that got to do with wearing a scarf around one's face?

    3. fierycj profile image80
      fierycjposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Hey Mighty, why is that everyone feels so darn compelled to kiss the guy's ass? Why? Cos he's got influence? Big deal. I wouldn't care less. If people will just for once step back and look at the guy - Mark for a minute, you'll find that he's not that much of a nice guy, not much. I mean, c'mon, what's with the Mark worship. Its like a friggin religion by itself in here. And Oh! I'm sorry that I'm not kneeling to Mighty Mark Knowles like everybody seems to be doing these days. Gawd!

    And I doubt very much that Mark hates you fiery. I should imagine Mr Knowles has better things to do with his time.

      that's where you're wrong, frog. He hates me. I mean, he absolutely, pain-drippingly hates me. He cant get enough of poking me every chance he gets. If he wasn't married, I would think he was gay and had a crush on me. Seriously, its that bad. There may have been a time I respected him in here - when I came in newly and all - but all that is ancient history. You guys can keep worshipping him all you want. Lavish him with love, he'll love you all right back - Mark Knowles way. Ha! What a joke.

        frogdroppingposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        fiery - I'm afraid to say that I don't love Mark. Or even worship him. I love my partner. I love my children. I even love my cat. But Mark is not on that list. I don't know him. So I'm neither qualified to love nor hate him.

        And I really do doubt that he hates you. Like I said, I believe he has better things to do. Loving people in the flesh is far more gratifying than the virtual alternative.

            After all, he appears to believe that you have enough room in your life to physically hate him - so from now on I think you'd be well served to blame him for anything and everything.

    This is really interesting I have to say. I do reviews on products and know myself for a fact that Lv products, regardless of what it is, sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. A good celebrity friend of mine wears LV and believe me, she pays big bucks for the stuff.
    If your a gansta, more than likely it was bought on the black market or stolen. Growing up, I was in a gang... I lived in California and it's covered in gang activity. If you weren't in a gang, you got the crap beat out of you everyday till you picked a gang or a side.
    Anyways, I'm not being ugly to anyone, it's just that I do this stuff for a living and do know facts. Check out my hubs and my website if your curious to know the facts.

    I don't think anyone would ever accuse me of Mark worship. I respect his opinions on many subjects and I respect the way he expresses those opinions.
    The vast majority of Hubbers are intelligent people. They give respect to people who earn that respect. You earn respect not by picking ridiculous fights in the forums, but by demonstrating your intelligence. If you are choosing to spend time in the Forums you are pretty much expected to bring something constructive to the party.

    Personally, I don't care if your scarf is LV or a bandana from the local five and dime. If you want to use a scarf in your avatar, that's your prerogative.

    And see? Mark himself says he doesn't hate you! So what's all the fuss about then???

    fierycj -

    Fact:  LV does not make a bandana in the print you are sporting.
    Fact:  Every LV bandana I've seen costs upwards of TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS.
    Fact:  You are likely wearing the fakest fake Louie Vitton piece of cotton that some schmuck could fob off on you.
    Opinion:  I am very sorry that you feel you need to flood the forums with negativity.  I wish you would stop.
    Opinion:  Mark is a fantastic chap who just likes to make people feel and think, react and stand up for something.  He does that pretty well.
    Fact: Personal attacks are not welcome on the forums.
