Official Poll to Ban Coach Sparky
« on: July 20, 2014, 10:02:37 PM »
Official Poll to Ban Coach Sparky from future access to The Open Mat..

One of two registered members that have literally killed the camaraderie of the Open Mat through obsessively argumentative and disruptive behavior.  Notably he offers zero value to the promotion of wrestling and the wrestling community.

Let your voice be heard.

Because cannot treat us with respect, and yet we follow all the rules of the board, you want to be spiteful.  Good job Ryou, showing your true colors.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark;  the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

Ryou, you may want to look in the mirror and research some of the other posters before pointing fingers.  Ban and Sparky are not the sole instigators in any given argument.

Considering the apparent new tone and atmosphere that is trying to be created here, I find it a tadbit disheartening that these two nonsensical and antagonistic threads were allowed to stay for one hour, let alone for this long.

You can also add the "Vortex thread"  that Ryou, the model of decency, also started and has been allowed to continue with no reprimend.   ???

At 17 votes to ban Sparky to 3 votes not to ban Sparky, I'd say those are interesting results.

It's all cool.  I could care less what people think of me.  Character, honesty, compassion and integrity are what count and I have all of them.

I forgot courage and openness two more traits which thankfully I possess as well.  Gosh aren't I humble?   Nahhh that is not  a trait I possess.

How to Identify Self Absorbed People

Self-centered people are easy to identify but difficult to handle. They love to talk, mainly about themselves, and can be quite dismissive about the point of view of others.

Absorbed by their grandiosity, they look down on others with an air of superiority that is frequently displayed in the way they behave toward them with a "holier than thou" attitude.


This type of person is also defined by others as being incredibly annoying. We have all dealt with them in our personal relationships, brief acquaintances, in the work place, and on the streets.

Self-Centeredness and its Roots in Narcissism

What makes self-centered behaviors so annoying to others is that they indicate a total disregard for the other person's opinion, value, or existence.

It appears that it's uncomfortable for self-centered people to be attentive for more than five minutes before they draw attention back to themselves to make their point which they believe to be correct.

These behaviors may have their roots in certain behavioral or personality traits that influence how the self-centered person approaches his/her environment and interacts with others.

These traits loosely fall under the definition for Narcissistic Personality which may involve a cluster of traits or a clinical diagnosis of a personality disorder. This can produce behaviors that affect the individual's ability to have healthy social interactions and close personal relationships.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is said to possibly be a result of overly indulgent parenting styles. They include but are not limited to the following list of traits and characteristics:

-Self-absorption
-Excessive self-love
-Need for admiration and/or fame
-Lack of empathy or concern for others
-Unrealistic sense of entitlement
-Demanding
-Manipulative
-Vanity and pre-occupation with appearance
-Self-assured cockiness

Unfortunately, it is difficult to contend with a self-centered person whose behavior is most likely related to imbedded traits of their personality that may not easily change.

It is well-known in the field of psychology that most personality disorders are not easy to treat.

Therefore, we are left to maneuver around or tolerate the annoying behaviors of those with whom we interact in our personal lives, work settings, or in public.

And all the people I have helped by volunteering at church, schools, wrestling clubs and wrestling event would most certainly be shocked to know some people find me even slightly self centered.  But go figure when you are opinionated, not afraid to speak your mind about topics and not willing to be walked all over by blowhard conservative, you are going to make enemies among them.
