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

I went back again and searched the original post to see where SA asked for people to give their .02 on her life,her posting motives,and her personality.I'm still not seeing it.So now I'm left to assume people are commenting on those things simply bc they have nothing better to do with their lives than criticize anonymous internet forum participants.Or this is a case of poor reading comprehension.

Seriously folks
"Do people not appreciate emoticons,pictures,and colors in a post"

Translated= Do you enjoy colorful posts or not?

Incorrect translation= please play armchair psych and tell me what's wrong with me and my life that makes me enjoy posting with pictures,charts,and colors.

This speaks for something... some of us have really strange pet peeves..one of my biggest ...men whistling.. ...I HATE it... I don't know why, I just DO....it annoys the crap out of me... those men are happy and gay and I want to go up to them and tell them to put a fork in it....

My husband and kids get a charge out of this annoyance in me, we had Carpet installers at our house, they were whistling up a storm... they were laughing at me cause I couldn't do anything about it , I will notice it faint in the distance..it's weird... it means nothing bad about the people doing it at all...it's my issue!

Not sure we can even explain our pet peeves .... I can't explain that one...but I've always felt that way. Happy my husband is not a whistler!

I'm an engineering manager, I spend most of my time dealing with engineers or other engineering managers. I would never communicate with a vendor, customer or senior manager that way. But among colleges we use them all the time, particularly on IM.
Me too. Our humor is sarcastic and not PC in nature. I'd rather not comment on where I work.

I love your colorful posts, SA! Your style is unique and distinctive, and of course you are never going to please everyone. As others have said, there is the scroll bar and ignore feature for those who are not charmed by your embellishments.

Oh ..

Just like anything else, that may be a "pet peeve" with someone else though...can't remember his username..but this guy...he outright warned No thread jacking on his opening post...he had no tolerance...he even deleted a thread over it...as I recall.... I felt like I had to walk a very straight line to not upset him if I wanted to even reply !

Now to me...that is utterly silliness....I don't find it an irritation in the least. I've gone off on a beaten path many a times on threads and thought to myself.. the mods are going to come after me...I'm being naughty!

Just don't whistle...and we're good.

But that's my daddy! and I love it!
I know it's ridiculous of me....that's why I mentioned it.. Pet peeves can be down right bizarre ...and very individual.... I probably make it sound worse than it is..

It's true, I would try to leave the room if I was around a whistler...or like in the grocery store, I would purposely get into a different line to get away from one...crazy huh!

But they are such Happy contended men - no doubt your Father was the same and you associate this with the best of memories - even think of him when you are around a whistler... After all Happy people whistle, it just shouldn't annoy me!

Thank you Skype and to all who have shared just that.

Those damn bat-plugs!
Oh my! What a temptress in that video.

I like the way cats are, and I like women. It's such a logical combination for a supervillain, IMO.

Hmmm, what would a man's be? Probably, like, a scorpion-man, or a sort of man who can shapeshift into a bear.

Yeah so anyway, now I know!

SA, you mentioned a member by name who doesn't like your posts. I am not sure what the purpose of that was, but that poster may take it as an attempt to shame them or make them look bad.

I know I wouldn't like it if another member started a thread where they mentioned me by name and then looked for reassurance from others because of what I said.

Post whatever you want, however you choose to do it. I simply wanted to offer a different perspective.

You mean Larry Gray.....I should have given the link to his thread on the color issue , it's right here....

No threads with all bold / large / color fonts

I would never look upon this as shaming, I don't follow you, it's a preference he laid out himself...and I was mindful of it...

I try to be as polite as I can...I guess I'll have to ask him if that bothered him.

I agree that you are very polite and friendly. I'm not saying it would bother him...just saying it could be taken in a negative way.

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

I most certainly don't see SA's posts like those that pick a solid block of GIANT BOLD TEXT.

Or ones that post an entire response in ONE SOLID COLOR..

Those are what I find annoying. I'd put those people on ignore, but ignore doesn't hide the quoted text. The ridiculous formatting that some use just gets copied into their quoted text.

I've made the suggestion that the forum blocks it, plus I do harass the offenders some too.

SA puts a lot into her responses and has fun with it. I don't find her style annoying at all. I don't find it difficult to read. I also happen to agree with a lot that she says.
