    I guess it is quite a personal question, but I didn't mean it to offend. Wasn't my intention... Although I guess it's quite poignant in highlighting how bringing a person's life outside of the hub up in a forum can cause distress and offense.
    I understand and love you lots. Like I said, I'm not making much sense tonight xx

    Default Spinoff - when does it become okay to judge?

    I'm not saying I'm a fan of VP (I actually feel rude talking about her in the third person) I called her a "horrible, horrible person" a few weeks back (and I stand by that) but what does it achieve? VP will never back down - she's like Marty Mcfly being called a chicken - you quote her and she'll fight to the death.
    Sorry, I'm rambling.
    I'm confused. I was going to thank you but now after re-reading I think you're back on this horrible persons **** list.

    For the record - happy to back down on any issue, if I can be convinced my assessment was likely incorrect. That's how I work - appeal to the brain first not the heart.

    In relation to the Finchy thread, things that may change my mind:
    - further details on how finchy may be working on her days off (my ears did prick up when a poster mentioned that possibility).
    - indications there may be health issues meaning finchy and her beau need 'extra' respite
    - information that Finchy isn't clubbing it up every Friday and Saturday night
    - details on finchys age, life before kids and marital status (hard to explain - may help remove preconceived biases that I have).
    - information on finchys other activities that would indicate she doesn't just care about material things even though she's a model (yeah I know, judging because she's a model).

    I think where there is a situation that doesn't make sense to me - in the absence of a lot of information I tend to judge on the limited facts available anyway - and yes when doing so I do tend to err on the side of half glass empty. Walking alone down a dark street at night, man walking towards me ... Yes I will cross the road if I get the chance.

    I'm not expecting people to hand me this information on a silver platter. I don't necessarily care if I ever find the answer. Just thought that talking about my moi's mind works is relevant to the thread in that it shows insight into how/why people judge.

    Now that I've stripped off naked and laid myself bare, I'm off to bed.

    Thank you for explaining how you view it.

    Because of this I creeped on her Instagram. All I saw over a few months of photos were lots of her working (almost every day) and several photos and videos of a very happy child. One of her and her husband out at night.

    So I take from that:

    - She works a lot and from the events she's at yes that includes weekends

    - Her child is loved.

    And that's enough for me. No I don't think she has mental health issues that require respite from her child. I think she and her husband work unusual jobs at unusual hours and instead of childcare they use a grandparent.

    It's simple.
    I don't like you but I didn't like the way the thread was heading because it seemed unfair to you.

    And calling someone a horrible horrible person (again) and reiterating that you don't like them is the way to get things back on track? I know you're a longstanding member here and have been through a rough time so I don't want to upset you - but geesus - take a long hard look in the mirror luv!

    I'm out.

    Wow this turned ugly tonight.

    I'm out too. I thought we were getting somewhere but this is all just depressing.

    I'm out.
    I'm sick of trying.
    I don't even know why I'm here.
    I'll take my ugly reflection and be on my way but I'll always be true to myself.
    Kindness.
    Integrity.
    Bravery.
