Iím the only one who used the word so itís not fair to blame others in this thread for my mistake. Itís mine alone. But I didnít try shifting blame away. In the same comment I owned up to using the comment I made my complaint. I wasnít shifting blame. I wasnít even blaming anyone in my complaint. I cannot stress enough that I do not find the word hater inflammatory or highly offensive. It was not the proper word to use and it was disrespectful but I would never use a word that I felt was highly inflammatory or offensive on purpose. I was called a don fanboy before and I let it go. Iím not saying that means what I said is ok but there wasnít such a strong reaction to that as there is to this. I can wonder why but Iím not a victim in this situation, so I have limited grounds to complain about how I was treated. I regret using the word towards you, FreyPower, Walshfan, Soda, Dreamer, Chaim, New Kid In Town and others. There are a select few that the word would apply to but that isnít relevant in this discussion. I was using hater as just a word for someone who has a great dislike for something. I felt it was appropriate. It wasnít. I own up to and Iíll try harder to use better language
    I would think that it would be reasonable that you could express your opinion if you wish to, but finding the appropriate language is going to be very difficult.

Name calling is never appropriate be it by me or anyone else and I hope that it can be solved. I will have to grow from this
    I agree that inappropriate language has been used by both sides. I'm not sure if the word 'troll' was used directly on me, but I was accused of trolling.

    I tend to agree. I have a poor record of saying what I intend to say.

    I note that in that conversation, that Tac wasn't criciticsed for his/her language:

    some other threads.

    iíll be going to the houston show in june .. my 1st eagles show
    and iím over the moon
    would i like to have seen glenn, randy, bernie and don f?
    i love the music from that lineup and i would just about sell my soul
    for an opportunity to go back in time, but since that isnít
    possible, iím giving the current lineup a chance and am not gonna
    let the haters ruin it for me
    be excited shun ... enjoy the show
    (My emphasis)

    I'm clearly not expecting everyone to agree with the bolded bit. But, is that a reasonable way to express an opinion on here? It does mention the h-word, but it's the subsequent post that was criticised.

    I still found the term belittling. Iíve never made comments intended to make people angry. Quite frankly arguments on here stress me out. I donít enjoy this, it happens but I donít like it at all. I felt it was an unfair assertion that just because I held particular views, I must be trying to stir the pot, and not have an actual discussion
