Jackie.....I'll hit the spell check button next time....
I try to post correct spelling, but alas....type too fast.
It wasn't directed specifically at you, Robin (I hope you didn't think it was x.x). It's a pretty common misspelling. We all make typos (I make them at the worst times, LOL).

[quote=Xeph;1796248]It has sunk into petty cliques (Yes, cliques, not "clicks"...pet peeve of mine) and the same old junk that I can find on lots of other boards IMO.

Jackie, this isn't meant as a direct attack on you, but I'm using you as an example. No offense.

"Cliques" and "rudeness" go both ways. You complain about the attitude on the board and in the threads, but you specifically have to get a dig in about one of your "peeves." Just that comment alone, in my opinion, makes you "one of them." When stripped down, it's just a catty (or is it cat-ie?) comment. And I'm not criticizing you for making it--I'm the queen of claws--but you're complaining about a certain attitude on one hand and being the attitude on the other.

Things go both ways. It is human nature and very easy for people to cry foul when it's something THEY don't like. Yet in the next post THEY can make some comment without even thinking twice about it. In some ways, people can be their own worst critics. And in other ways, they are the all-powerful do-no-wrongers.

The same people that I see declaring injustices being done to them are often the same people who make snotty comments and stir the pot themselves (not saying you are, just in general). I can think of several off the top of my head that are always bemoaning the attitude on here, but I never read a nice and positive thing in their posts.

Pot...kettle here, and I think you're black.

It's because this feels like a trap. Like your waiting for us to say something wrong and then ban us. That's why no one is disagreeing right now.

Like your taunting us to come out and expose ourselves
I don't know, maybe I missed it, but who appointed you spokesperson for the 14,000 plus members of the forum?

If you feel this is a trap, fine, that's your opinion, but I don't think it's fair to assume that everyone who hasn't had an opportunity, or desire, to post is paranoid about Yung's invitation to state our opinions.

I won't even comment about the derogatory pigeonholes you've decided to place the posters in.

Omg stop attacking eachother. Mr. Yung was just discussing the problems that occured here which I have no idea happened. LOl.
I am one of the few who wasnt banned or kicked off since the last Presidential election so my views differ which naturally causes commotion.
Really when things get heated just walk away and remember everyone is entitled to their opinion whether you like it or not.

Yeah, I'm complaining in general about improper spelling. Has nothing to do with attitude. I just like to be able to understand what I'm reading.

And it is a criticism, and one you're allowed to make. Doesn't bother me any. But I'm not picking on any one specific person.

Please, no more of this. If you think people were going to respond in kind to you calling them a teacher's pet (which you labelled to pretty much everyone who agreed with my post) and suggesting that I was doing all of this to entrap some users (like yourself), I would be shocked.

Like I said, if you want to express your thoughts and opinions, go ahead. This thread is like every other thread in a sense that the same rules apply here.

I love everybody. Does everybody love me??? I have an opinion - that has been built over the last two centuries - you really should show some respect to your elders, even if they are old, crusty and suffer from CRS (can't remember s_i_).

Remember, I was a pony express rider as a child and can quote Gen. R. E. Lee from personal conversation. And am very opinionated about what German shepherd dog is all about.

But I do love you all ...

And Jackie I gotta know, was the tye dye tee employed on your honeymoon????????? roflmao
