    I enjoy talking about facts, if they're interessting.

    Questionable definition, Boche.

    A fact could be interesting, yes, but still private.

    However yes, i hate rumors too. It's amusing, at the begin, but i get annoyed easily of them.

    I gossip about folks I respect and about folks I disrespect. Behind their backs and to their face. It sure ain't nice but it's honest.

    How do I define gossip? Well, something like "x is an arsehole", "I really don't like y, he's a try hard".

    One of my exes told me what an a-hole her ex would have been, and told her ex (with whom she still stood in contact) what an a-hole I were. Furthermore, she started the same rumors about him and I, thinking that we wouldn't meet that easily. Alas, he was friends with one of my friends, and so I met him early enough. So when we met we like simultaneously said, "Are you the a-hole who...". Turns out that she'd been talking a whole heap of bs about both of us to the other of us behind our back ... yet for the whole thing we still hate each other and when we sit at the same table we mostly ignore each other. I could easily start trouble since I know that the few friends he has would support me if push came to shove, but I'm not going to try that out, that'd be more antisocial than I care to be at this point in time.

    I'm not much of a gossiper. Not unless it's of importance. Other than that I try not to get in the middle of peoples' drama.

    I like gossip, but I prefer to hear it then to repeat it. For me it is second instinct to collect data. I can't help it. But I don't like to share it.

    For the record I haven't pryed into your private sphere. But some people have told me things.

    For some of the members on here who seem to the most anti-semitic, they somehow manage to come off as the biggest

    I'm far too content to talk about myself than to feel the need to talk about other people, usually. I like to listen to gossip sometimes, but only if it is "juicy" or something that effects me. I also love when things being said about me get back to me. My reputation has changed so much over the years, but it has pretty much always stood totally differently with my friends than with people who I've barely said five words to. I'll express if I find something distasteful, but I rarely think it ever turns into gossip.

    As far as forum gossip? I've been on all sides of it, although I'm usually one of the first people to get smack talked about (easy target: young female with views nobody else seems to agree with). I know some of the other females on the board I admin gossip about me how sports fans talk about the game. Doesn't bother me, as they're not constructive.
    Polygamy: it might not be for you, but what right do you have to keep it from me?

    ROTFL that's the best part. A tells B something about me but says "make sure you don't tell C", B can't resist and tells C, "however you must not tell anybody", C goes and spreads the rumor to D, D to E and so on, until it gets to my ears and I catch them redhanded. I make sure they know I know and that usually teaches them a lesson.
