Before you accuse me...

I was driving back from lunch, heard this song on the radio: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/e/eric+clapton/before+you+accuse+me_20051376.html Got me thinking about a certain person over on Yuwie and another one over here who accused me of something that I did not do. From now on, that's my response: "Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself." And then I'll blast the SOB. Just kidding...

Cynthie's shaking with fear: Hope it wasn't me, she whispers softly.

Dawn- I know just how you feel, and I fully agree. Those that accuse us of such things simply are not nice. I believe some of these types to be mentally ill, and there isn't much you can do for someone who is not getting proper treatment. And the old saying goes about pointing at someone else, there is always four pointing back at you. I wish you the best of luck in your situation. Namaste-Anora

Like Irish said, come and talk to me. Then if you don't believe me, don't talk to me any more. So simple. lol

I don’t know who did that to you Dawn, I’m pretty sure my conscience is clear...I hope...Nope...I have never accused anybody of anything here or anywhere else really. I don’t believe in making assumptions about people unless I am definite in the facts and, as you say best thing to do is take a good look at yourself before judging others. You get them dawn! (LOL)

I understand where you're coming from dawn....there used to be a person here that accused me of all kinds of crap as well, then actually did these blogs over at Yuwie accusing me of ludicrous things--if I could have would have loved to have sued the person for slander

Before I met you I ran into one of those blogs too, I think Sparks was mentioned as well. I never ran into that person here though, don't even remember who it was any more...

I feel the same way about the person who does the same thing to me Pye. It's a good thing we're all smart enough to get to know a person before we judge them. Namaste-Anora

Jeez, I SAID I was sorry like a million times! It was an honest mistake on my part and I admit that now, but at the time I really DID think something odd was going on with that llama. You both had spandex on for God's sake, what was I supposed to think??? For the record everybody, Dawn and the llama were on their way to a sci-fi convention and were in costume. All Dawn was doing was adjusting the llamas utility belt.

It was the llama's fault. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

The sentence seems to be parallel to, oe derived from. "Look at yourself in the mirror (first before criticizing anyone)" I have used the sentence several times in the past. Unfortunately it was not received well by my accusers. It is for this reason that I prefer to keep quiet. Let them rant about nothing. It is true that there would be people believing in the accusation. This, in a way, helps in identifying human characteristics. As time passes, most will forget. Not only that, the accuser will get some form of retribution. The scholar who accused me of womanising and raping my own student even forgot that he once greatly contributed to making life difficult for me.

hi dawnald thats a really cool response. take a look at yourself.'If the person gets it that is a kick in the rear. I always say before you judge me, just think about this adage, judge not lest ye be judged. dawn wouldnt it be fun to put those kinds of people in the stocks for an hour or two then throw some nice juicy rotten tomatoes at them, humilating but not harming in any way.it would feel darned good.
