You and him are in a Two ""man"" Clique!!
Is there a clique on the forums?
If someone makes a stupid/ignorant/offensive comment and several others disagree it does not mean they have formed a clique it just means the person has made a stupid/.......etc comment
yes ,same clique as in the rooms .The mates tick"like" to the replies from their clique buddies It`s not so easy to spot the cliques in the rooms with a lot of chatters in as the comments from buddy to buddy may be quite spaced out by many lines ,but go in to the rooms where there are (e.g.) about 8 people in a clique and anyone who is outside that clique stands out like a sore thumb. Believe me i`ve tried joining in normal chit chat and i just get ignored and anyone could see that as the room is so underpopulated .
More weeping than a forest of Willow trees.
my gangs bigger than your gang!
Not without expectation, this thread,
like so many others, has been bastardised by a sad minority of people, many of whom rarely, if ever, contribute much to chat, let alone Forums!
I do agree with hell2bwith76 regarding a particular chat room that very few new chatters EVER return to, simply because they are either not welcomed or felt alienated by the regular incumbents of that chat room. I have no doubt that most people will be completely aware to which chat room I refer. And, yes, it IS that one we never see you in.
I do wish a certain moderator would not take personal slight at everything I post in the Forums. People are given a choice whether or not they respond to a thread.
It's called democracy.
I think in many cases, some chatters have simply chatted to each other for many years and so have naturally become friendly or close and in some cases, may also communicate outside of chatrooms. Those people speak largely to each other possibly because they know they have lots in common or are pleased to see a pal pop up in the list and they enjoy talking to them.
In some cases, someone previously 'popular' in a chatroom may be snapped at by another and, depending who has the most chums in at a given time, could be ganged up on by the opposing group and instantly become a chatroom pariah!
Sometimes, one can join a room and simply fail to engage with the topic afoot or get no hellos at all. I think that's often because people are deeply into a topic / spat / flirtation (!) or because one may have been an irritating arse the last time and people just don't want to talk to them. In that case, it's best to pop back later. On two occasions, I feel I have been ganged up against. I let it get to me, madly. Quite unwise. One cannot argue with stupid, after all.
Interesting results so far though eh ? Considering that the ones who are deriding the suggestion appear to be in the majority.
To quote Wings: "Band On The Run".
Wow Hell dear, I taught Algebra and couldn't follow all your X, Y, and Z's. Lol
it`s merely a way of expressing numbers Oboist. i could do it in another way but it`s late xx
Do you know why sheep, are so paranoid, why they all follow each other and have a crazed look in their eye?
Well i do.
They eat so many magic mushrooms in season, the poor things are tripping out for 365 a days a year.
Thats gospel that.
Never look a sheep in the eye!
I want a 3rd clique... just saying.
Maybe the cliques are really manic religious sects disguised as chatters? lol
wanna bet ?
Typical gangs ,real and virtual ,are about 10 strong with obviously the same interests . Considering the diversity of interest there seems no reason for anyone to be snubbed by the others. The main reason for that is if more than 1 of the group is at discord with 1 or more of the others in group and then people pick sides !. In a room with a max capacity of about 12 anyway it`s very obvious who is being ostracised. Take a room with 100 or more present then the same gang won`t even be noticed most likely ,drowned amid the rest of the banter. One main room is an obvious candidate for the "clique" mentality. Apart from Local or specialised chatrooms the rest are a mixed bunch.
Does that help with your Algebra Oboist ? x
