    Yes, I can see your point, why would someone bomb such a lovable person as me.
    I guess we are at opposite ends of the spectrum.

    1) Are any of the messages threatening, &c.?

    2) Has the other stopped sending the messges?

    3) In all of your complaining, how many PM's did you send in return telling the other to stop messaging you?

    Honestly, as you're one who as already boasted to me directly of your own insincerity, I need more of a reason to give a damn that someone sent you some private messages.

    Because Rainbow has a history of writing long rambling posts one after the other on some threads, I wasn't to know if 'he' now considered my PM box to be a new place 'he' could splatter away with PM after PM after PM.

    Reading the first one or two lines of each of 'his' PMs, I realised it was just 'his' usual staccato nonsense.
    Considering the length of each PM, something you can do without reading it, I knew these PMs were just about 'him' having some kind of melt down.

    So, I reported it in order to stop my PM box becoming a rambling place of 'his'.


    I found all three of 'his' PMs at once.
    I sent ONE PM to 'him' .
    I never used any insulting words in that only PM. I asked 'him' if 'he' was aware he had sent three consecutive PMs to me.

    They have stopped now, but at the time I didn't know if they would stop.
    '' boasted'', I didn't boast. I just don't take this site seriously when people like you are going around using words like ''honestly''.

    Are you implying that Bohm was a crank? Is he widely regarded (by whom) as such? I've always been curious about that.

    I know that he was a bit kooky and was into some questionable stuff, i.e., Rupert Sheldrake, but I'd always thought most of his own work was sound.

    (Re: Sheldrake: I think there's actually something to some of his "theories" (morphic resonance), he simply didn't go about establishing as much in the right way. He kinda put the cart before the horse there.)

    So, the messages weren't threatening, and the member has stopped after you addressed the point directly?

    Then I don't need to worry about it.

    It was your justification; compared to what else goes on around here, there really is a question of what makes these messages from R/S such a big deal.

    And you do have a credibility problem.

    Annoying? Sure, I can imagine. It's stopped? Okay. Was it dangerous? No? Good.

    We've been passing over a lot of small complaints, lately, largely because we wouldn't know how to express the actual rule, and people would complain, anyway. And compared to that other stuff I would rather not need to worry about in the first place, it's true I'm uncertain what the problem is, here.

    No.

    But Seattle, I and many others have had more than enough of Write4U's garbled expositions of Bohm's speculative ideas. You may not be aware of the background to my remarks, which were intended as something of an in joke.

    Sheldrake, however, really is a 6 cylinder crank: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Sheldrake

    Personally, I think Sheldrake just took way too many shortcuts, disregarding proper methodologies (for who knows what reasons, given that he was more than familiar with such), thereby making most of his "findings" essentially worthless. IOW, I think that there is something to what he terms "morphic resonance," but we haven't properly examined such as yet. Ethological approaches would work best, but they, by their very nature, seldom provide definitive answers; whereas behaviorological (sp?) approaches simply wouldn't work and their findings are generally contaminated to the point of being totally bunk anyways.

    No ''big deal'', I was interested to what extent Rainbow may have bombed others here too, hence the OP.
    Are you speaking for all here? Be ''honest''. I may have a ''credibility problem'' with some. Would that be a more ''honest'' thing to say?

    Calming reassuring words of a mod putting it all in to perspective. You're luckly I don't claim for psychological damage.
    And there's me losing sleep over it.

    Have you considered joining a union?
