Amazing your hateful tone of voice. I have suggested we join forces and invite others over to discuss freely what seems to be forbidden at lipstickalley.com plantation. You take offence at this and treaten to ban me again? Thank god I have other channels to speak to folks, so you are not hurting me in the least...I imagine folks on cocaine are very agressive and can be triggered by anything, just anything their victim says. A killer on cocaine will explain to the court his victim gave him a dirty look or so...So, it seems you are going to use your nice shotgun on me, by me not paying you money, or what? Such a loving and warm atmosphere here, isnt it?

So you and Cherryblossom, a pink flower, are the same person, because it was she who banned me, mocking my spending time at the library for research, while I probably should have been out selling coke and pimping?

You cannot bring your issues with other sites to us ... ranting on about how you don't like what they do.

You cannot even remain here and talk about how you don't like what we do ... for too long.

I say build your own site and show us how it should be done, instead of just talking about what others do.

My tone matches my responsibility in making sure all rules are abided by in this community and when you break those rules ... well ... you probably are not going to like my tone. Some are put out immediately without any fanfare. Others (like you) get the opportunity to continue talking crazy to me (for a short period), get to choose for themselves if they want to leave or remain here and abide by our rules, maintain our peace, etc., without me immediately stepping in and taking the decision from them.

Considering the above ... my tone and actions toward you have been very nice.

You should thank me.

:heart:

Me thinks you are carrying on as an inmate of Bellevue, or that you left the tampon in too long, saving money to buy crack, and it started poisoning your blood, damaging your already infected brain. The VOODOO curse has been dispatched, I cannot stop it, but I ask god to not let you suffer too long. Perhaps you could be hit by a truck or so...Somebody named Destee started a forum with noble intentions but she had to surrender control to others, I do not know if they are pinks or Blacks, but them is the worst trash that ever was, and wrecked a good initiative, driving away all the good folks..I ant paying you nothing, besides I have no **** money paying rent in Marrakech and The Hague too. And one is expected to pay for sex in Morocco and as a foreigner I am supposed to be some goddam Scrooge Duck, swimming in Euros, BIG ******* DEAL, and the heat has started, because I is living in a ******* desert on top of a ******* Atlas mountain. Hot as hell in summer and winternights freezing to death..

I appreciate you lifting my name to the VOODOO Gods.

Unfortunately you keep breaking our rules, cursing, etc., and I must say farewell.

Much Love and Peace.

Money is a huge factor. Someone dangles the carrot and everything you loved about a certain site changes.

I used to LOVE Blackplanet until it changed into a dating site. It became a meat market with irritating sales adds. Netnoir disappeared one day without warning. Swagga.com (which is the site that lead me to Destee) doesn't appear to be updated much lately. Eurweb.com is still around but I'm not sure who runs it and what the focus is anymore. Buppienetwork.com never really quite jumped off..but I see it's still around.

I wonder how to get around the financial strain?? How can those sites stay around and stay black owned and run?

I call black planet "The Internet's Babylon"

On the mutual respect level, its a no no to diss other message boards here, bro...

fyi
I understand I apologize


It's true one cannot come here and vent their bad experience with another site, for long.

But ... saying what you did above Chaya Chaim ... is fine ... i mentioned them too in the opening post.

Thanks chuck for trying to help keep the house in order ... :love: ... but he was good this time ... :)

Thanks Chaya Chaim ... for your willingness to abide by our rules ... even those not quite ours ... :wink:

Loving Us!

:heart:

aaaaaawwwww Sister FaithSoulSistah ... Thank You Sooooo Much !!! :love:

It is really hard. If i weren't doing it, hadn't been doing it for so many years, i could say something different maybe ... but whew ... it's just not easy catering to our own people, and staying alive at the same time! This is a major area that we need to work on, supporting our own. If i hadn't witnessed myself, all these years, i might wanna cuss someone out, if they said some of the things i think on occasion, or have been told to me over the years. It's just hard.

We wonder why a Sister or Brother ultimately ends up catering to white folk, or working for them, or doing something that makes it appear as though they have "sold out" ... when all the time ... they were holding out as long as they could, ignoring the hunger in their own bellies, denying themselves, in hopes that our people would respond positively and lovingly in kind.

We want to fuss at the Sisters or Brothers like Oprah, or anyone in the media, that appears to be catering to white people, yet we won't even help the ones that we know are out here working for us. It's just got to stop. We've got to do better. We've got to give our children an incentive to work for us collectively. They have to know that they will be able to eat, and have a roof over their head, if they dedicate their life, to their own people. These are basic necessities, yet we will walk right by them ... encouraging them to continue, thanking them for a job well done, and never reaching in our pocket to help keep a light on, or deliver a page, or pay a bill, or do anything. Ohhh, but we'll talk about it all day and night. We'll talk about what needs to be done, but don't dare ask for help ... or you'll be marked with a scarlet letter.

It's just terrible. We've got to do better, and we can do better. If everyone does just a little bit, it can go such a long way.

Thank you Sister for being one of those willing to help financially. It means the world to me. Only God knows the sacrifice this has been, to keep alive, and i worry every single day, that this may be our last day. It's a krazee existence. I question my own sanity, making the choices i do.

We've got to make the talk, action. There's just no two ways about it.

Thank You Thank You Thank You Sister ... i am honored! :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

You should be able to add an avatar, do everything! If not, let me know.

Much Love and Peace.

I feel your pain and share your disappointment, with those of us who don't support us! An Afrikan centered consciousness is the key to power! Integrationism taught black people to take pride in giving their money to non-blacks. And those of us who take issue with the practice are called "reverse racists". Lol But we are the only people in the world who do this. Every other people spend most if not all of their money with their own kind. Dr. Amos Wilson taught us that "your money follows your taste, your money follows your interests, your money follows your passions"! And where do we get our taste for cigarettes, beer, wine, liquor, and pork. Where do we get our interests in sports and entertainment? Our passion for gambling and casinos? And to whom do we give our money to satisfy these wants, because none of them are necessities. You guessed it. And until we adopt an Afrikan centered worldview, value system, and frame of reference, this situation you write about will continue to exist.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
