About 'The Mare's Nest'

first off, i will say that i am a fan of TMN, and i read it regularly. There is a link to it over yonder. That said, i think there needs to be some things said to the general community, regarding TMN.

There is some drama going on right now regarding tmn and the people who read it, vs the people who disagree with it. Some claim that it is a bad blog and all they say is hurtful evil mean things, and others say its jolly good fun, get over it. its all a matter of personal opinion really, but when it starts to come between friends, then its time to take a step back and think about what it is your actualy fighting over.

bob likes the mares nest, and reads it all the time. bob blogs about it from time to time too, and tmn somtimes blobs about bob. bob is happier than a pig in shit when tmn mentiones him or his blog.

betty reads tmn too, but she doesnt care for them too much. she doesnt like the things they say, or the things they do, and she blogs about it as well. her blogs are negative.  tmn blogs about her too,  and betty feels she is being attacked and flamed.

bob tries to convince betty that she should have just kept her mouth shut, wheras betty thinks she had a right to speak, even if it IS against bobs precious mare.

so are we following yet?  if bob and betty truly loved each other, they would respect each others feelings AND opinions, and not let something as trivial as TMN come between them. because... ITS NOT IMPORTANT!


its a blog. its not the prophetic stone wall scratching made by civilizations long past. its not the will and word of some omnipotent deity. its not even a friggin fortune cookie. why does everyone in the simmers community take it all so seriously?
look, if you go around, tip toeing thru your blogs and online chattings walking on eggshells afraid to speak to anybody, then who the hell are you? if you cant be yourself, why bother? dont be afraid to be who you are, because you 'might' get on someones bad side for 2 minutes. believe me, there are WAY more important things in life to worry about.

both bob AND betty need to see that this isnt important.  if their friendship means anything to either of them, THAT should come first


ive tried to be as vauge as possible to protect the identities.i hope you guys listen to what im saying here. you know who you are

  1. Well said Zeri

    I feel so out of the loop, I didn't think anyone REALLY took the Mares seriously, it's just a gossip blog!!

  2. I have been ignoring everything blog related today, but I decided to take this time read other people blogs and ran upon this. Zeri this is so on point it's scary. I did not want to talk to "Jill" about Mare, but Jill wanted to talk about it badly. "Jill" wants me to see them as bullies and Jill saids I'm taking their side. I told Jill that she asked for when made post about them and they always harsh. Jill said I have right to have opinion and they are attacking her, but I told her she should just left it alone. It wasn't big deal. Jill thinks I'm taking their side still. All I can say is wait it out, it will blow over, it's not worth crying over, but Jill is still angry. Then Jill friends said I'm obessed with Mare, that I need disagree with them sometimes. That I'm only one that can tell they are wrong. Well I don't feel that site is big deal, but I feel like everyone ganging up on me for gossip blog. Jen and her friends don't want Mare to notice them. I only want things to go back like it was and people to stop worrying about them. To not take it so serious and respect my opinion. That is all.

    Back to roaming the interent to non simmer things!

  5. Sounds like Jill is being a bitch and trying to force her opinion on you Vid, don't let it get you down, she obviously needs to take a chill pill, and you sound like you need the break.

    Go an enjoy your birthday!

  6. yeah if jill wants to be stubborn and angsty, let her be. she will cool off after a while and hopefully see how silly it all is. i just hope it all smoothes out in the end

  7. Cookies sound good ^_^

    I think this should all be chalked up to one big 'agree to disagree' on all sides, and everyone just go on and do what they do. It'll be better that way. No more drama, no more fear, no more crap.

  8. Yum! Are the cookiws still on offer?


    Sometimes I agree with the Mare's. Other times I disagree with them. Sometimes I think they ltalk a lot of sence, where as others I feel they talk a load of bull. But it's like that with EVERYONE's blogs. Sometimes I'll agree with a person and even if I agree with them nearly all of the time there will still be times were I'll go "sorry, don't agree with ya there my opinion is *my opinion here*"

    There is nothing wrong with that though. Time for a quote I think.

  9. yeah it takes alot of maturity to admit when you are wrong. and also, to take constructive criticism.
    some people are simply UNABLE to accept the fact that other ppl have opinions that differ from theirs.

  10. Yeah, I accept people having different opinions, but as a very opiionated person, I will stand up for my own.

  11. Hi Zeri! I really really liked what you had to say on this matter. I am not a member of the sim's 3 community (although i do play the game) but i am a very good friend of 'Jill'. I just wanted to say that from what i've witnessed things have been really gotten out of hand with this mare/vid/jill thing. from what i understand Jill was upset by what the mare did. Jill made a post expressing why she was upset. she then felt attacked by the mare's response and got angry with Vid cause Vid was telling her that it was her own fault and she shouldn't have made the post then. Jill was angry with Vid, yes, but she did not go psychotic. I've seen the messages sent back and forth between the two of them. Jill basically said that she didn't want anymore drama and she didn't think that she and Vid could stay friends for the time being. Jill said she wouldn't ignore Vid but at this point in time did not consider her a friend. Vid got very angry in her reply to Jill (which she had every right to be, i'm not saying she was wrong for being angry) and that was that. Jill did not blackmail Vid in any shape or form. I just had to clear that up cause she's a good friend of mine and it was driving me crazy with people thinking she went batshit crazy pardon my french :P
