Hope you don’t go for long. I like your pics and updates. It’s nice to have as many folks who aren’t climatological ideologues posting here as possible IMO.

Plot twist: Fred comes back, see’s there’s been some bickering and name calling, accusations of racism and some posts from Jesse scattered in there. Doesn’t really read much of it, blurs eyes and assumes it’s all Jesse’s fault. Bans Jesse yet again.

Lots of cleanup on the boards this evening. Unfounded accusations are never acceptable. Tonight could also be a good night to educate yourself about the language and symbols/emojis that we use on a public forum.

Please be respectful of others because you know what, we're all not perfect.

 

Damage is already done…quite a few people are leaving the forum at this point. Pretty sad and devastating honestly. Makes me think about even staying here honestly.

I mean, it’d give something for us to rally around and come together? Lolz

Well, it’s in the past now. Andrew was obviously trolling but that topic is a third rail that shouldn’t be touched in this thread, ever.

If it happens again we’ll probably have to come up with an alternative solution to simply hiding posts.

But is it really? We have had 90" of precip this water year, if that is a dust bowl then it's not that bad.

I assume a cold season “dustbowl” isn’t possible on the westside absent glacial inception.

Not gonna get into it but the whole series of events but it was way out of line. And just covering up the posts while doing nothing else and will lead all of this to happen again. Just pretending none of it happened and hoping it doesn’t again is a pattern that’s gone on for longer than I’ve been here and doesn’t seem to be working out well. Not gonna stick around for the repeat of events like tonight there should never be stuff like we saw tonight on a weather forum this should be a fun place where people can seriously learn stuff (most of the time it is). Most of the time when everyone’s joking around it’s not personal but every now and then sh*t like tonight happens. Should be about the weather…we don’t get serious meteorologists posting here because of this stuff and it really holds this place back allowing this stuff to happen. 

Dude, please don’t leave. Just take some time to cool off.

Looked like Spring was nice for them. I wouldn't say its that bad this year. But late winters (Feb-March) have gotten weirdly dry since 2020. I think 2 of the top 5 driest Februarys in southern Oregon happened 2020 and 2022. 

If Spring 2021 had repeated on top of almost not having a winter aside from December, then yeah.

If it happens again there’ll be consequences I’m sure. That was way over the line and cannot happen again.

Heck I need to tone down the s**tposting myself. Many of us can do better on that front.

I thought the emoji accusation was a joke.  Found some obscure article about a certain emoji being high-jacked for a much darker meaning.    Literally no clue.   How do we even keep up with this crap?   This is what I see when I click on the emoji list.

Screenshot_20220805-231208_Chrome.jpg

I made a comment about it but it got removed. Basically this is the first I've ever heard of the Ok emoji being used in a hugely offensive manner (something about 4chan users). 

A lot of popular movies/tv shows may have featured a character using it on camera. I think it's silly.

First I heard of it was here:

Weather looked pretty nice that day.

What you did tonight is truly inexcusable.  We have spent 21 years teaching our kids the complete opposite of what you vehemently and angrily falsely accused me of tonight.

I feel bad for people who have joined the forum in the last couple years having absolutely no idea what the forum politics are like. I’ve been here long enough to kinda understand the history now but it must be like “wtf is wrong with these people” for the first couple months. That’s how it was for me anyways 😂

I lurked for eons until joining last year.  I'm on other non wx boards, this ain't nothing when it comes to drama.  consider that a positive.  its a nice respite from the usually abrasive world of internet message boards, imo.  even with what just happened

Unfortunately we can’t control how hate groups use certain symbols. Did you also know that “88” is a symbol used by neonazis? 

I mostly lurk here but it seems to me that Andrew was really stirring the pot because he is bored or something.
