Posted:OK, so what I have noticed and I find it quite funny. When people see a man doing poi with cloth many people will take it as girly. When they see you do it with light, some people will think you still more of a censored, not as often as cloth though. But, OH MAN!~ When you pick up the fire and start swinging it, now you are the most manliest man to ever man this manly man planet, you are the manly god of men Mr. Super Manly Man Man. Has any other guys here noticed this? In your experience, what do people think of LED's when they know you also do it with fire? And also, this question is for the women out there, what kind of reactions do you get with these different things? And for other guys, what kind of different reactions do people on average have on different staffs (plain, LED, Fire)

Posted:Really? Here's some background info on me with poi. I saw it in Germany, loved it, tried it, really loved it. I have always been a person that was ignored by everyone, even friends would at times just not listen to me/interrupt me, things like that. I had a feeling that I couldn't talk to anyone because everyone looked down on me, or it was like I just wasn't there. Now all of the sudden, along with something really fun that I love to do, people are talking to me! People actually give a censored about what I say. People will actually come up to me, they include me in on conversations, I've met so many great people, not all of them are now my friends, but they're people I can talk too. And that means a lot to me. You have to really be in that position to see where I am coming from and how terrible it is. But, as for this thread, I am a curious person and it popped into my head, and I wanted to see what others experienced with this subject. As for what is above, that's personally a hard subjuect for me to talk about and I'd appreciate it if it wasn't brought up again after this.

Posted:spinning in a vacuum sucks. I don't know a lot of local spinners around here, but I've gotten several of my friends into spinning poi. Even though we're all on different levels of "skill," when we have a meet-up, Its a fair trade of knowledge and concepts and ideas between each other.

I can't imagine why someone would be stingy about their poi knowledge, It's about spreading the stoke and seeing how people show themselves in their poi. I think it is absolutely beautiful how everyone has their own approach and styles and concepts of poi (I guess this stuff seems pretty obvious though)

It's hard because it's true! If you don't like it being talked about then don't go and spread it about. You gave up the right to 'not have it brought up' when you posted it on the net so just remember that the next time someone politely drops you a hint. The world will not make way for you, it's the other way round. And the whole purpose of this thread was for you AS USUAL to give yourself a good EGO FAP! nothing more. How you have survived on the internet this long I don't know.

Posted:What I don't want being brought up is talking to me about how I was always ignored by everyone, it is a very hard thing to go through, and I'd appreciate it if you were'nt so censored rude about it, and by hard for me to talk about I mean it's because it is an emotionally sensitive subject. Some people ggrew up with actual problems in their lives and it is generally polite to not bring u these types of things, similar to if someone gets raped, you don't keep talking to them about it out of courtesy so just go and leave that subject the censored alone, I only put it there because someone asked about my background with poi and unless you have a real good reason to be an ass, LEAVE THAT STATEMENT BE, and accept that some people have time where they feel it neccecary to share and don't patronize them about it.

Posted:Thanks for being honest SoD, But I gotta tell you, poi is really fun and I am stoked its bringing you much joy but its not some magic formula that is going to change the world. Doing poi is not going to make you special or set you apart as much as you think it will. You need to do that yourself. Im not having a go at you here, its just some advice, if you go around thinking that you have something over other people you will only get knocked down with a large dose of the reality check. Be proud, but be humble.

Now, because this is the internet and you have said some truly remarkable things - here is the flame section. (now I am having a go at you)

So far the only person being rude is you - I dont see anyone elses posts with censor marks on them. People are expressing their opinion, very politly. If you had of posted half this stuff on any other forum Ive ever been a part of you would have been treated far worse. So untwist your knickers and harden up.

No worries. I will remember that and I promise not to mention anything when the time comes that you actually do go through a real problem. What you are going through is called teenage rebellion mixed with a thing called going to high school. everyone has gone through it.

Grow up.

and when you do, and you have experienced some real hardships then come back to this topic and reread on how you...

Originally Posted By: SpinnerofDetroitsimilar to if someone gets raped, you don't keep talking to them about it

...compare your woes with those of a rape victim. (As much fun as this flame is I gotta admit that when I read that I felt sick. I generally hope you feel shame for it now)

but I guess until you do you will continue to post adolescent tripe where you beleive your hardships actually amount to much. But the good news is at least Im not ignoring you.

This thread sooo belongs in social chat

will everybody just chill out?

Also patently it's more manly to be doing staff than poi wink


Because ActiveAngel sounds like a feminine deodorant

Like sex, I'm much more interesting in real life than online.

My post wasn't another opportunity to fap over yourself again ok. Who do you think you are to preach to me about etiquette? Kids these days seriously. I've been polite enough to humour you this long, and you should be very greatfull the people here have more patience than I do. I think you're just being a plain emotional sponge and taking advantage of the good nature of these people. I'll repeat what I said before in a manner you can understand.

"The world owes you nothing, so stop acting like it does, no one really cares about what you have been through. It makes you no more special than anyone and the faster you realize that and stop acting like a child the faster you will see who you are and who are the people around you who seriously matter"

You say you don't want us to talk about your issues but you bring them up in nearly every post. Like just that last post, you take the time to rant about your problems first and then tell everyone to stfu lol Seriously, you must google PG forums before posting if this is the first time anyone has gotten onto you about it.

Posted:Right - so this is being locked as it's not a discussion, and certainly not a social discussion.

There's an exising topic (or 10) on the original subject matter, and the rest of this has degraded into mud-slinging.
