I got this, you have stirred the Pot... most of my threads die a quick death...thanks to you , you poured some hot tabasco sauce on this one... I'm getting some pop corn.
Ma'am, spicy is how I roll. Also, I think you are a true lady and the attacks against you struck me as petty and mean.

I wrote the most colorful post in response to your last post and I got timed out and lost it. Thought it was a ban from the whiner fest.

I was hoping to see it. It would have put your rainbow posts look like a kindergarten stick figure of a stick.

Skittles all the way.

I am sorry to say I don't have any available curly fonts though

Is this hypothetical picnic taking place in the US?

In which case, I will take your sandwich and lend it to two people at once, and demand two sandwiches from each person back.

In the meantime, the kids can all starve!

This hypothetical picnic is taking place in a bullpen where all the bull**** is.

Re: Seriously... do people not appreciate emoticons, pictures and colors in a post?

SA, obviously you do not have to answer and you may not want to get popcorn butter on your keyboard but if you can stop laughing and don't have tabasco in your watering eye sockets…

1. have I offended you in any way?

2. if so is my apology sufficient?

3. giving me FULL benefit of the wide variety of meanings in the english language of which you are very skilled

a. would it be fair for ME to LABEL your consideration of pursuing writing, considering whether you ought to get more involved in church and considering whether you are reaching your full potential attempts to fill in the VERY LAST REMAINING HOLE in your life of many filled holes? Hahaha

b. is ALL LOST including the message when someone is speaking to you in a way that RECEIVES MORE CONSIDERATION THRU RUDENESS than others whom are more gentle AND BORING.

c. oh englishly skilled one…is there a meaningful difference between the following phrases that YOU CAN DISTINGUISH

In other words does "Filling an empty hole in your life otherwise blissful life" = "your life is empty"

d. Now lets say there was a picnic basket full of bull**** …

LOL

I haven't read that yet....soon.....this thread came off the heels of a couple comments on the "Female desire" thread in the Ladies section ... it wasn't the 1st time a poster complained & I genuinely wanted to hear preferences.. some have given reasons I would have never entertained...

1. have I offended you in any way?
Offend...I was taken a back with your 1st post... like "damn!' ...but this is a free forum... I asked..it's good to know who can't stand us...and why... It's the internet.. you are a complete stranger to me.. if I am going to go cry in the corner over this.. I got some issues, now wouldn't I... the fact that others don't feel this way... helps! ... If I got an onslaught of posts like that.. well.. I might leave with my tail inbetween my legs ..of course..

2. if so is my apology sufficient?
I found you a tad humble after my posts, which I give you credit for. I hold no ill will against your cyber force.

I know they think you are half drunk, but I don't honestly mind your questions...if I am being wholly foolish & stupidly vulnerable in answering them , so be it...

Answer...Yes it would be fair to suggest (not sure label is so great) that I have a hole that may yet need filled in my life...

I miss the fellowship at church..seeing some of those old friends but I don't believe like that anymore... ... I've never had a career in a society that now looks down on SAHM's... I think this sucks donkey but it's life ... do I/we need the money, not really... we're good. Does my husband care, No...I've always been enough..

DO I care... still trying to figure that out..

Do I feel a sense of fulfillment if /when I have helped someone -to lift their spirits, change negative thinking patterns, to see a clearer path in the darkness... it's awesome..I've always been a psychology enthusiast... it helped me stay sound... for one and overcome my own demons...

Quote:
b. is ALL LOST including the message when some is speaking to you in a way that RECEIVES MORE ATTENTION THRU RUDENESS than others whim are more gentle
... NO.. I had a similar exchange with Cletus on this forum -he is more like you...in dealing with people...He also expressed he didn't like my style...

What's funny is...I explained to him...although you THINK I am all sunshine & rainbows... I have a capacity to be brutally honest myself.. bordering RUDE... my friends tell me I used to intimidate them, and lets just say My mouth has gotten me in some trouble over the years... I have learned some Tact and some Grace.. so do I understand people like you.. I do...and I'm not any Helen Steiner Rice either .. (if you even know who she is)... when I was younger, happy people annoyed me to...because my circumstances sucked...and I wanted better....

You are trying to get one over on manticore, which I have alot of respect for ..not cause he has defended me very nicely here...but I just always resonate with every post he leaves... almost on any subject, I can't help but LIKE the guy!... I am sure when he said what he said, it was a slip of the tongue or keyboard in the moment... but Yes..I see a distinction between the 2...

I found THIS post below the most "prejudice"/ intolerant against colors, emoticons & the like so far...(you are definitely ONE UP I got this!).....but hey ...that is his/her opinion..(and I asked)....what I read in this post is...this person immediately judges a layout & associates it with naive stupidity... irregardless of it's content... Interesting..

Re: Seriously... do people not appreciate emoticons, pictures and colors in a post?

Oh I wake up and he got banned.. figures.. I know , I know he derailed this simple question and made it very personal.....I really wasn't all that bothered...I'm weird like that... even had a good laugh over it last night.

Your nastiest critics can help you think too. Doesn't mean you need to like them..but yeah...you gotta separate the anger from anything that could hold some water.

I am surely not alone in being glued to TAM and enjoying posting.. even if that is a waste of my time, for now.. I still like it.. so kick me.. Though I am going to lay down being so colorful and emoticon happy in the future.

Even AFEH, a long gone poster who I liked (constantly getting banned -till he had one too many)....he was rude to some man on here for using emoticons -telling him he must be a _____ only women do that...( forget how he worded it -though he himself used that a lot...he sure stirred some threads up...Sarcastic that one was..but he was an intelligent cuss...

Well at least I am the right gender! Funny how people think.

Overly sensitive forum members on all forums run off interesting people all the time unfortunately.

I despise thread hijacking on any forum so I try diligently not to do so. I think it's oblivious and rude to the OP. IGT directed comments to the OP responsive to the question posed.

The OP agrees with some of the points, took little if any offense and was admittedly entertained by the commotion. For that IGT was challenged for a blunt style and called names by hijackers and was banned. That is answering rudeness with rudeness and it happens way too often.

To OP I agree it seems you have an unsatisfied thirst for an expression outlet when you post so elaborately. I don't care for it either but encourage you to be yourself despite that. I also encourage you to pursue it.

Your thoughts will sell if you offer something that isn't already there. If you are anything are you not unique?

Uniques sells. Writers force the challenge of the status quo and generate controversy. It's the opposite of boring. Look at the books often recommended on the forum. Why do members like them? For the same reason they like your points? Probably. Do the books mentioned have their very healthy share of critics? Of course.

I find your comments compelling and see the abundance of artsy graphics odd. Your motive for doing so is an interesting topic at least to me. Why do you do it?

Answered this on my 2nd post >> "I do like looking up pics on Google images....I took Graphic Arts at Vo-Tech , so I just have a thing with spicing up the written word... when going to the Library ...I always appreciated the books with Pictures in them.. that's just me.. a part of my personality I guess"...

H is the one who was showing me some funny emoticons one day yrs ago...he had his own collection ....that got me started -looking them up...I'll blame him a little here...

You are surely meaning books like "No More Mr Nice Guy" and "Married Man's sex life".. and the critics are nasty Mothers.... yes..

I've always loved controversy .. my husband tells me I LIKE to argue (he doesn't mean this in a mean way.. my personality invites a communication challenge, I get off on it)....... but I don't think I would handle bucket loads of hate well.....No, not up for that just yet...not sure I want to invite this into my life.... maybe this is part of it too..

I've gotten a small taste of it here... it's all a learning experience.

Subjective. You could as easily say that interesting people choose to express themselves in obnoxious and aggressive ways all the while knowing that the forum has conduct guidelines.

Either you want an unmoderated forum or one with moderation. If the latter, then there must be a line that describes prohibited behavior. I think this forum has reasonable behavior guidelines.

Why is it that people who intentionally push the line never accept responsibility? There's always a poor excuse: I'm more creative. I'm more edgy. You people are too sensitive. This other guy did it and got away with it. Blah, blah, blah.

As with all anonymous forums, there is a certain segment that takes the opportunity to be obnoxious because there is no possibility of public shaming. These people may be articulate, but they don't seem to recognize that being obnoxious trumps that.

A motive is needed? People have stylistic differences that require no explanation.

OP asked if people had issues w her posting style. She didn't ask for commentary on her life. Just my opinion over the comments from the last few pages.
