    Flo's posts on TWoP

    Alright, since everyone wants to know, and I *did* ask about it during the interview, here are her original 2 posts on the TWoP site, which have since disappeared:

    Message 1
    I have been trying not to read anymore but after last night's episode I decided to register and respond to some of the cruel criticisms. I would just ask that you consider the stress of the race at this point and the fact that I am clearly a competitive woman who just wants to win this race. I am happy to explain and even apologize for certain behaviors but I have frankly had enough of reading this garbage and not standing up for myself.
    Message 2:
    Look-I did not go on a reality tv show not knowing that I would judged by a bunch of people without anything better to do - However, since you spend so much time watching and commenting on television programs did you consider that perhaps editing is involved here and while I concede to giving the editors some material to make me the "bitch" on the show- I may infact have redeeming qualities and moments that you do not have the pleasure of seeing. I understand that I put myself out there for all to critique- but unless you have been on the race you can't really understand the impact that it can have on a person. I am really shocked to see myself reacting like I do in some situations- I am lucky that Zach and I were together 24 hrs a day and that I hopefully was able to make up to him for the times that I hurt his feelings. However I will say that regardless of how weak and whiny you all think I am I know how valuable of an experince this was for me and I look forward to defending myself to some extent in the near future.

    Why did TWoP delete her posts?

    If she hadn't been so bitchy, they wouldn't have focused on her so much. You have to give them the fuel first.

    I have no idea why they deleted them. I hardly ever go over there, I just happened to see that she had posted, and then people jumped all over her, and they deleted her post but not the replies to it.

    Maybe Flo deleted her own posts. Or a T*** moderator did. Before finding this site, I posted there. Several of my posts were deleted, and I wasn't cursing or such, just cogently presenting my opinions. In my opinion, one of the moderators was not so moderate. As an experiment, several of you should register there and see how long it takes for you to have a run-in with a petty tyrant. So sad!
    John, FYI, I see that one post over there refers to FORT as something like "another website."

    John,

    Thank you for posting up those original messages Flo put up. When I heard about it being discussed I wanted SO badly to read for myself her own opinions...When I learned it had been deleted I gave up.

    Personally I think Flo delted the posts herself...I think she originally posted because she thought she could explain herself and "shut up" her attackers, but when she found it was a "losing situation" she bailed out and didn't want to keep her messages up for further attack.

    I hadn't even thought about her deleting them herself. Oops!

    I had also looked at TWOP quite a bit before finding the FORT, and I think they have some good writing on that site, but very little *free* exchange of information. The FORT has Paulie, Fluff, Cali, the Jenn and Tracey journal, among many other great writers, as well as the best forum enviornment I have come across.

    I wish that Flo had expressed her ideas here, as while she has certainly taken her share of criticism on this board, the participants are a pretty fair bunch.
