Rileyjames
Before we say goodbye to season one, I thought it would be nice to take a look at some of it's leaders. To me Riley is one of the great ones here. Her love of animals is unparalleled and everyday shows us why we as a people need to change the way we see them. She has been my friend and confidant. And I say kudos to her accomplishments here on the Q.  Riley keep up the good work and keep the videos coming.

I like Riley and I find her passion for her animals inspiring.

However, what I am not really liking very much lately is all the bickering on this site. The little hidden jabs (and not so hidden jabs) are not very cool.

Glenda, I appreciate your friendship and your respect for Rileyjames.

Is this really appropriate? Making polls about your friends?

Here's the link to the Mooser goodbye poll.

Alan I though it would be nice to say some things about the people here who have made a difference. The next person I pick may or may not be a Friend. If you do not agree with the poll why didn't you just skip it?

Because I thought I would respectfully express my opinion. Nothing against the CoC in that.

I just wonder whether we will be seeing a lot of similar polls now with folks promoting their friends. Seems kind of clique-ish.

I'm not really into the clique thing.

 Skip to Next Poll » . There were 114 comments about moosers contributions. Why do you think the Q spotlights people, it is  because they have made contributions. If we do not know or agree then we are always free to go on to something we find more interesting instead of asking why this person has done what they have done. Thanks for sharing Glenda, Freedom of the Q!

Thank you for doing this poll.  I hope all of the new members will take the time to get to know Riley. She is a wonderful person.  Not only a great advocate for animals but she contributes ALOT to this site!  Her articles are great and I'm proud to have her as friend!

For Riley:

Exactly.  You don't have to read them!  There is always the option to skip a poll.  It is better to do that than to bash it! Thank you for speaking the truth!

You know I wanted to do a poll on a person who has contributed to this place we all love. I was hoping maybe some of the new members could get to know her a little more. I had planned on doing a series of these polls. But in the first comment this poll went wrong. Right wrong or indifferent Iam very hurt that it has turned into this. You know we could all do our part to make it better by simply ignoring what we don't like or agree with. Jason I understand your frustration and I am in agreement with you on it. The one person who ruined that very funny poll should have just ignored it. Alan should have just ignored this poll simply for his dislike of Riley. I want to thank the ones who have so far contributed positively to this poll, and hope the ones who do not plan on doing that simply just skip it.
#21 | 1814 days ago

Here's to RileyJames who has made significant contributions to Season One, I for one received tons of accolades and gave as good as I got.  I've enjoyed reading her articles and understanding her point of view regarding her cause and just think she's a great Woman ... Looking forward to Season Two ... CHEERS!

 Riley James..... what can I say about Riley..... well... I love the woman.... her viewpoints and my viewpoints are so diametrically opposed, I can't imagine being any further apart.  That being said, I have a huge respect for her and enjoy her polls and articles not to mention she's pretty cute too!

Anyway - keep it up Riley - I look forward to our future debates....... 

Gotta go... have to adjust my heat vents...... this global warming is chilling me! 
She is a great woman  
#25 | 1814 days ago

Hehehe ... "meat curtains". 

Anyway, so about Riley...  lol
I appreciate her passion for animals, being an animal-lover myself.  Keep on keeping on, girl ... just know that there are MANY people on the Q who greatly respect and appreciate what you do and say.  For every hater, there are at least 10 more who love you!

Glenda - I don't appreciate you attacking me with this comment. You called me out specifically and negatively. This is against the CoC.

I felt this type of poll was inappropriate. I never said it was against the CoC. Disagreeing with the focus of a poll is not disrespectful or even against the CoC.

I particularly do not believe in singing the praises of an individual who attacks people who put comments out there that disagree with a point of view that she is pushing. Especially when that point of view encourages giving half-truths and attacking whole groups of people falsely.

Although the mods have not deleted her attacking comments, rileyjames has posted a number of attacks to me including accusing me of deleting her comments (which I do not have the power to do), attacking Jasonwrites and myself as "fellow pencils" who are out to get her (neither Jason nor myself are out to get her.) And I do not have a "dislike of Riley". Don't put words into my posts. My comments on her polls and articles are strictly related to having both sides of a story told.

I do NOT have to skip a poll. And I will not skip polls that I think are intolerant or provide a one-sided view of something. And please don't ask me to "ignore what we don't agree with". If people are intolerant or attack others, my father taught me to stick up for what is right, not just walk away and ignore it.

Glenda, I will not post all of the examples here, but I am happy to provide the proof and the examples to anyone interested. Feel free to pm me.

I just read Glenda's post (the one you replied to) three times and don't see one point where she personally attacked you at all.  If the Mods haven't deleted Glenda's comment (or any of the other comments in which you allege that Riley is attacking you), then I think it stands to reason that none of them are actually personal attacks.  Reminds me a little of the story of the boy who cried wolf.  Either that or there's some serious paranoia floating around these parts.

John I did not call her an icon. I made a poll on a woman who has contributed to the Q that is all. I never seen your polls on serial killers perhaps it was before my time here. I learn from her blogs and polls, thought maybe some new people would like to as well. I love your polls crossing religion with politics not everyone does but I do therefore I read them. I just thought I would do a series of polls on people who have contributed and made a difference here. But trust me I know I will not be doing that now.

 Thank you Glenda, but you know certain Mods just can't leave their personal feelings alone, which further shows their double standard and dislike for many members. You have one Mod up there talking about my animal polls, which I do not put in the locker room  anymore, I write them in my blogs, which they are free to pass on up, but some mods won't and keep sticking there nose where it doesn't belong, especially when they unequivocally state they are tired of my animal information BLOGS, but yet in the locker room polls we have to continually see this Mods Polls on Religion, and Serial Killers. The hypocrisy of stating that I called out a Mod, when I was publicly chastised by a Mod being called a B*^%# twice, guess they forgot about that one, and all the harassment by a certain Mod, whose only desire is to muddy up and take an informative poll and turn into a crap fest. In summary we have a mod up there calling my thinking "Twisted" when clearly if you look at Mods comments on a Poll by a great Q member who has graciously given me her accolades and is attacked right away because of the person it is about. There is your equality and unbiased example of pathetically poor leadership and lack of common sense in insulting a harmless poll to give me praise, which I thank you very much for and taking the time to make my day. As you said if they don't like me why comment at all? It's nice to know where you stand with certain mods who just can't leave it alone to the point of allowing you to express your free opinion. These particular Mods need to learn that good leadership inspires people and encourages them to contribute and not trivialize what they are doing, a good leader sets aside personal feelings, a good leader is not an ASS.
 I know my work on here is very well received by many people, and for the people who insult me or harass me about what I contribute they should all know by now that defending animals is  tough, but then so I am I. I don't choose to engage in a battle with anyone on here, but if you come after me you better bring a lot more than your little barbs and harassing comments.                    
  Thank you again Glenda, too bad the Poll Remora had to strike again, and by the way Mooser knew most all the Mods and writers on here didn't like him. You people need to get some class and take some public relations classes and stop attacking Q members with your petulant B.S. If you don't like what I write then don't read it.

Riley it was my pleasure doing it,  I for one find your articles and polls very well written and thought provoking. As you know you and I disagree completely on the H1N1 flu vaccine you are con I am pro. But we agreee to disagree without it interferring in our friendship. I wish more could just simply do that.

I have no problem with disagreement, but there is a way to do it without provoking someone. I certainly am skeptical about H1N1, but am looking more into it. I just heard a doctor today say that while people are concerned about not enough H1N1 vaccine at the moment they should still get there regular flu shot, which is getting hard to find. This Doctor also believed that next year both shots will be combined into one shot. As far as Animals go that is my field of expertise, and it is because people either don't like animals, don't know their plight, or simply don't care which is why their plight is so overlooked. What I write is information and facts and from what I have personally witnessed, if members don't like it just don't read my Blogs. I won't put them in Locker Room Polls anymore unless it is something I think many people would find it of value. I think you should put up ma Poll for anybody you feel deserves recognition in your eyes. It's your poll and many people do contribute much.

The hypocrisy of stating that I called out a Mod, when I was publicly chastised by a Mod being called a B*^%# twice, guess they forgot about that one, and all the harassment by a certain Mod, whose only desire is to muddy up and take an informative poll and turn into a crap fest. In summary we have a mod up there calling my thinking "Twisted" when clearly if you look at Mods comments on a Poll by a great Q member who has graciously given me her accolades and is attacked right away because of the person it is about. There is your equality and unbiased example of pathetically poor leadership and lack of common sense in insulting a harmless poll to give me praise, which I thank you very much for and taking the time to make my day. As you said if they don't like me why comment at all? It's nice to know where you stand with certain mods who just can't leave it alone to the point of allowing you to express your free opinion. These particular Mods need to learn that good leadership inspires people and encourages them to contribute and not trivialize what they are doing, a good leader sets aside personal feelings, a good leader is not an ASS.
 I know my work on here is very well received by many people, and for the people who insult me or harass me about what I contribute they should all know by now that defending animals is  tough, but then so I am I. I don't choose to engage in a battle with anyone on here, but if you come after me you better bring a lot more than your little barbs and harassing comments.                    
  Thank you again Glenda, too bad the Poll Remora had to strike again, and by the way Mooser knew most all the Mods and writers on here didn't like him. You people need to get some class and take some public relations classes and stop attacking Q members with your petulant B.S. If you don't like what I write then don't read it.
I just think it should be clarified that John (Tiger_Pride) is a featured writer not a mod.

Featured writers are NOT moderators, there is a big difference between the two.  Both of the people you're referring to are not moderators.

Wow,  I have not been on this site for a few weeks.  I used to try and get on every day but lately the desire has not been there.  Today I had some down time at work and got on.  Instead of going straight to the trivia like I usually do I decided to check out the polls.  After reading this poll and a few others I realizes why I have not got on here in a while.  I no longer enjoy it.  All of the nasty comments and personal attacks are really tiring.  There is no ability anymore to have a disagreement without being afraid that you will be ripped apart in the poll.  People can not answer polls that have been done in the past but instead rip the person making the polls because it is a repeat. You know newer people to this site don't know it is a repeat.  I keep seeing people write that we want to befriend new members but let me tell you that I have never really felt befriended on this site.  I don't see how you will attract new people to this sites because the cliques are already formed and they are not taking new members.  Not that an intelligent person wants to be part of the clique but they sure don't want to be excluded.  There are some very nice people on here who do make an effort to be nice to everyone but the rest are really spoiling it.  I sure wish you would straighten up because I have enjoyed my time on here and will still continue to do trivia.  I just think my time at the polls will be very limited from now on.  If you don't want to continue to see people leave and you want to welcome new people then I think some of you should really clean up your act.

 Yeah there sure is, but with certain exceptions attitudes are pretty much the same. A poor girl can't even do a friendly Poll to thank someone who they have regard for without it turning into a toilet flush and who do we thank for that, the first comments on the Poll thats who and they were Mods/Writers whatever. I mean when you really dislike a member that much and can't bear her getting any praise that is pretty shameful. It's Glenda's Poll and her opinion, but it's nice to see all my detractors come out of the woodwork. Thank you very much

Because I thought I would respectfully express my opinion. Nothing against the CoC in that.

I just wonder whether we will be seeing a lot of similar polls now with folks promoting their friends. Seems kind of clique-ish.

I'm not really into the clique thing.

I am also relatively new here, whish is why in my polls I say i'm sorry if the poll has already been done. I do not know of any cliques here I really don't but it is getting ugly in here. I hope you stay in here I always enjoy your comments.
