@samfiorella Yes @Geoffliving is awesome that way, he operates within ethical boundaries.
@Frank_Strong @Danny Brown @AmyMccTobin @brandcottage Yeah not sure blaming technologies or bloggers who want to support each other via triberr is the issue here ;)

@Danny Brown @DavidTraub @elizonthego) Well Danny Dabney did not start Social Media Manners or SMManners, I did. Before she showed her true colors I asked her to help be a part of the group and write a book. She went behind my back and trademarked it, bought url then used her bullying tactics to take over.
@Danny Brown @Marjorieclayman did;), but we were in secondary attack, not the primary one. If anyone talked to either party, were sought out and jumped. We did discuss civility, it was met by deaf ears.
@OneJillian Jillian you ask a great question that I had to ponder deeply after experiencing a gut wrenching attack in the online world.
On one hand we are told do not engage the troll. In my situation the troll was stealing my community. I had unknowingly let the wolf into my community and even more ( after the fact when you can see much clearer) partnered with them thinking two would be more powerful, as well as effective than one. I was so naive and ignored many red flags. Thinking it was my fear side trying to stop me from being open and collaborative.
We all have opposing energies on the stick of life that are there for us to learn from. I learned and learned deeply.
For those who wonder, I am happy to be a light of what beauty can come out of what appears on the surface as ugly is - well a LOT!
I took responsibility for where in me, had I ever behaved like that "wolf"? I processed those experiences and am still clearing them out as the surface into my awareness.
Because of being able to turn ugly into beauty:
Today I am very clear about who I am online and what is important to me.
Today I am listening deeply to my inner knowingness and when she evokes responses in me that I know now are warnings, I do not doubt them, try to reason with them, they are feelings for a reason and they are there to serve as my guidance.
Today I ask myself the tough questions - where do I do what i see in others? ( then I do a process to allow me to release any charge or right and wrong to the situation-really powerful once you learn it)
Today I know my brand is to be a wave that washes over rocks and makes a splash. Those darn rocks we fuss about allow me to splash bigger for clients ( and get paid really good now ;)
Yes, it takes a lot and yes it is worth it. Was it easy? HELL NO! It shock my basics beliefs in humankind.
When we can come out on the other side and see the love of the situation, see how it empowers us, to step into more of who we are, then we win ( as ego sounding as that is ).
It all is really one big process - life. We can take it on in small chunks or big chunks. Boy that was one big ass chunk. ;)
@hessiej @AmyMccTobin You articulated that so well:
"Trolls will prey on those who are willing to debate because it's their opportunity to somehow twist the language and provoke further attacks."
Now is time to engage in more enlightened conversations that generate solutions, instead of being stuck in attack mode. That is a sign of immaturity when you are only in an attack stance , unable to see any other side or admit when you are part of problem.
BOOM, I am impressed with how you took the facts and presented them.
Too many times I am seeing people use the term "Bullying", when they want to get their way and then the act in the very same offending maner they claim was given to them.
I believe that is a form of deflection.
We are starting to see more of it when people do not accept responsibility for their role and want to turn the tables and claim to be the victim.
Now what needs to be addressed are social media sites that are not using a consistent definition or rule for removing posts.
It smacks of hypocrisy when the party acting in a bullying manner, never has their posts removed.
It also gets old when time after time, the same offending party sends out their pack dogs to tear people apart that do not agree with them.
This will not change until people are coming from a self actualized position. Those people are able to observe, identify and be solution oriented.
"Self-actualized individuals are concerned with solving problems outside of themselves, including helping others and finding solutions to problems in the external world. These people are often motivated by a sense of personal responsibility and ethics."
My question Amy is "when will people start showing up in a unite front that we do not tolerate bullies, even when they hold up a victim banner wearing sheep's clothing?"
Yup, Margie those are the folks I do not go out to dinner with again or to the museum.
People for years before tech came along, used excuses to not do the right thing. Now they have a new excuse.
Same song different dance.

@Dr. Chase Hayden Chase funny you should pop up, I was just thinking about you. I am in Dr. Demartini's Breakthrough Experience this weekend and wish I saw more of my friends and colleagues in here being the change in their worlds.
Some of my learnings are being reduced to the core essence and now I am able to apply them across the board in my life better.
Very eye opening. You live a nice journey of bringing people into alignment with their health. We alue your work sir!

@Faryna @Faryna You absorbed a lot, I am listening again and still amazed how much I need to rewind and listen to each answer a second time in that moment.
@kmb462 Thank you it was a very power packed 60 min - definitely going to listen again about 10 times.
@YouTernMark great points, for seasoned twitter users it can be deafening listening to same thing over and over. And yes some of us put an extreme amount of time, talent into our chats.
One of the things we all have to be honest about as well is, how does this serve my time and objectives? After a while you recognize you are either "preaching to the choir" ( now matter how well you pick out topics) you have an environment where "experts pop in to throw out their two cents to be seen", or you are talking to the listener wall of silence.
While people may gain a lot of value from learning in twitter chats, when does the need for real discussions and discourse need to be to allow for value to be there for everyone.

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Twitter Chats Are Full Of Fluff
@tamcdonald @connectyou We had a solution that allowed us to bring in people from linkedin Facebook and email but their funding ran out and they had to close doors, so again, platform did not solve everything ;)
@tamcdonald @prosperitygal Oh I think that is dismissing the big picture. We all want to expand our reach with topics and be able to have it be simple, easy and fun to use. This is not a platform issue alone, this is a people issue. We have to be willing to discuss the behaviors around our new platforms and channels, what they bring both good and bad then re-examine where to go from there. I think Steve Woodruff brings up something similar about behaviors after an extended period of time.
Well some of us worked hard to bring deep conversations to light in them and the public at large only wants a fluff fest. I had a structure with mine, interviewed guest so we could go deep on the topics, instead of soundbyte BS.
@AlaskaChickBlog Thanks, I often wonder why people feel the need to skip social graces. We are seeing consequences when we do that with each other in the news daily. You’d think it would be a no brainer. Start with ourselves being gracious. Appreciate you taking time to chime in here.
