Thanks, Sparky...is it OK if I call you Sparky instead of your complete name? I have a habit of nicknaming others with shorter names to match my memory.

Again, thank your compliment

Most just call me pinhead, so sparky or sparks or Dashers, or S.D. is fine. Real name eric
but don't tell anyone. ;D

I guess the mods were right not to lock this thread. It has energized the forum today for sure!

I agree that the bad stuff can help us but I'm not sure that reading threads like this will endear newbies to the site.
We really aren't doing ourselves any favours by extending this discussion IMO (the irony of this post isn't lost on me  ;))

I guess you're right drab...it don't look good
but if it can clear the air, it might help.
No need to prolong this storm in a tea cup though.

I agree with you. I think the thread was censored enough to  maintain the decorum and integrity of the site.

But if there is ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED is NO ONE tweak the content of thier site or their members for the purpose of 'gaining' or 'attracting' NEW members.

I am new and I am here because of exactly what I encountered on THIS site.

You can't win more fans by changing the marketing of your can of soda, just ask Coca Cola, Pepsi, etc.

I have found that on my project, looser is better. Vulger and harmful must be seen and judged by all.

To really get rid of a member, don't respond to thier 'offensive' entry.

They die off from lack of oxygen. To add more hot air to the subject does the opposite, imho.

I'm not judgin' I',m just well, giving my judgmental opinion.

Take care. Susan

Jesus, you're a Scary Mary Susan!
Don't agree with some of your words and I'll probably continue to disagree... should be fun.
If I haven't said it before, you are very welcome.  :-*

Thank you, Mr. Rev.Drab....I don't enjoy bickering over small 'crap', shall we say?

But I love lovely minds who are fair and far-thinking...

We are diiferent.
In one night of our dreams,
we experience more than
a whole lifetime of many, many other souls.

We are writers.

We do not grow old as those without dreams grow old.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Yep, its getting near that time
when I start weeping into my beer and mumbling about Old Father Time.
Gonna surf the Times Square Oracle readers, and soothe sayers for the latest updates
of world history.

Happy New Year one and all.

We sure are as similar as we are solid
and we are all 99.9999999999999% empty space
the real world is full of voids
so there's lots of room for shit or God
and you can't fill a cavity that size with the good stuff,
so guess what's left?

Happy days

I'm in Dublin, it has come and gone.
Check out Sparks New Year poem Sue.
It's wonderful

O shucks ::)

Time zones sure confuse the magic moment
when we can say goodbye to the crap and welcome the new crap ;D

Like an old girlfriend once said of me: Still waiting for the fireworks. ;D

Over and out :P
