What you're saying is that if the neighbor is throwing rocks at my house, the other neighbors will hate him, even though they know I'm a drug addict who deals from his own house and blasts vulgar hip-hop at 3am every evening and possibly attacked mr. jones' daughter at the club last year. It is all about understanding context. My neighbor might be a rock-throwing jerk, but if they're presented with all the reasons why I deserve the stones thrown, and they still side purely against the neighbor, it proves they're unswayable by reason.
If you have a problem with how the message is presented, find a better way yourself. If you're not willing to find a better way yourself, your input doesn't do anyone any good.
This would be relevant if it addressed what I was originally arguing. As I stated earlier, if you really want to attack Ramy, go for it. Open forum and all that. I'm literally giving you the green light. Knock 'em dead big guy.
What I'm telling you is that any message you have is completely lost because to almost literally everyone it just looks like you're a psycho rock throwing neighbor. The vast majority of people don't even read your posts anymore. You've become a joke.
I assume you don't want to be a joke. I assume that it is important to you that your message be heard. The only way your message is going to be heard is if you stop being JUST the psycho rock throwing neighbor.
If you organized neighborhood community picnics, brought your neighbors chicken soup when they're sick, and share great memories with all of them, they're going to assume that the reason you are throwing rocks must be valid, and they're going to pay attention. If you hole yourself up in your home and the only time anyone notices you is when you're throwing rocks, you're going to be the psycho rock throwing neighbor.
Go ahead and be angry in Ramy threads. Go for it. You're allowed to. That's what comments are there for. But if you're going to do that, do more. Compliment the art that you do like. Participate in the community in a not-angry way. If you do that, then your message will get more respect from everyone, instead of a derby designed to make fun of you.
