    banning Sacha on the basis of the above

    The only time you've ever used that term? Because she incited you? Umm ok but you basically constantly use misogynistic slurs. I mean that specific one alone? Hundreds of tweets https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&vertical=default&q=twat%20from%3Akaupapa&src=typd&lang=en and You literally called a woman a twat when she was talking about men intimidating and attacking women who have asked them numerous times to LEAVE THEM ALONE on Twitter. You're so concerned about pile ons apparently but never when women are the victims. She had been attacked by dozens of people and you kept into a tweet about that after you'd harassed her all day to call her a Twat. And now you're doing it again - reframing an issue and pushing attacks on her and claiming she incited you into calling her a twat. And Russell you claiming she is regularly part of pile ons without any evidence at all other than you both don't like her. Using your massive platform once again to bully a woman when she can't defend herself. All on a post about how you *really care* about the safety of women. This is gross.

    I think it's bloody confusing when some of us don't do twitter and then come back to PAS to find people having a go at each other. The conversation is hard enough for a lot of us, let alone those who seem to be involved. Now its becoming spiteful. Sacha has, like all of us ,his moments but he's not a bad person. C'mon ,it's Sacha.
    Oh and sorry ,yes Russell, back to TV....

    I wasn't even looking at Twitter - imagine the confusion.

    I don’t have to imagine confusion.
    I’ll never have to remember the time when
    my sciatica was playing up and your hands hurt,
    that was the time that we first met.

    Me too...and this is why I find this from(of all people) David Cameron, rather amusing.

    http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2009/jul/29/david-cameron-apology-radio-twitter

    and...OMG!!!...Stephen Hawking did the same...and called David C a pregnant goldfish. (sorry, but where I grew up this was the meaning of that word...we used...some other word...to deliberately offend)

    Tweet at your peril.

    (PS...bloodstains are really hard to remove once dry. Or heated up.)

    Please do note the gender of the target in every case.

  • Della,

    Oh you don't like it when people challenge you? Yes, we have established that. Going to call me a twat too? Reframe this all you want but a bunch of people saw those tweets and they know what you said and they have seen you do this before. The screenshot as well and the search that shows how often you call people twats is clear as day. I haven't been fed anything (patronising much?) - I saw the whole exchange and just like heaps of other women on Twitter who have seen you in action I've been disgusted by your grandstanding here. So keep on claiming she drove you to use a word you just never use in public and it was all her and she is part of pile ons and anything else to attack her character. You're not convincing everyone...and the fact that you're still having a go at her after all this time says a lot.

    I'd rather not. Does it matter?.

  • Russell Brown, in reply to Sofie Bribiesca,

    Yes. I think this has actually largely been a really good discussion, one which has made me think a lot, but it can't possibly respond to something that's largely taking place elsewhere.

    Public Address isn't a public utility and to have to spend my unpaid Friday night dealing with something that looks like the kind of shitfight that is making people leave Twitter isn't very appealing.

    But I do dislike closing down threads, especially if others have something to say.

    Thoughts, folks?

    Well actually quite a few of us here wouldn't, either not following or not the twitter type, so find this all confusing.
    So, keep it on twitter eh?.

    if only I were paranoid enough to screenshoot my tweets from months ago I could show you something different. But hey, whatever makes you happy.
