What do we know about Skoolie Nation on Facebook

I got involved in a discussion, and because I didn't like some woman commenting on the size of parts of my anatomy, I received this message ... from her:

"The admin has temporarily turned off your ability to post or comment in the group until Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 6:51pm.


For those who are members, the thread is here:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1sko...1333585366703/

She took issue with one small portion of a lengthy post, and went from rude to downright abuse for reasons I cannot discern.

Oh well.

I've found the most tumultuous FB group to be "Skoolie" -- they all have their various characters and character

We joined a "skoolie" group on FB. Buncha real dim folks on there.
This forum hasn't always been argument-free but the intelligence quotient here is much higher than the FB group.

The same kinds of folks I've been dealing with trying to sell a bus on CL.

I usually join forums to get help, and give it where I can. I join FB Groupd simply to help, rarely do they give me much.

But this woman is crazy. Seriously, she imagined a slight then descended into personal abuse and banned my commenting when she figured out that I won't be bullied.

It's not worth my time.

Oh ... y'all can't see the contentious post because she deleted it, and all her abusive replies.

I left the group. I don't do egos that size, and that fragile.

I left that group a while back because of that crap. And I left "Skoolie" after I gave the admin a piece of my mind

I love this group

is that Theresa's group?

she has befriended and blocked me about half a dozen times. cross her and you get the boot from the group.

i used to try and stay in her good graces but its more fun to piss her off. i've been booted.

she complains about anybody that tries to help, plays the helpless woman, and the complains if you end up mansplaining something.

but she means well.

Yes, that's the one.

I'm sorry, I don't think she means well. She imagined a slight and went full Linda Blair on me.

I won't go back, too much negativity.
