I don't really have a big bart in this but I do so like to give my opinions about stuff.

First off, again to JJ. I didn't try to be sarcastic in my previous posts directed at you, in fact I tried to help. I apologize if I came off sarcastic. I know how much I detest sarcasm as I was an extremely sarcastic child. I found it funny until I realized how much it hurt the people around me......

I don't know HB from a bar of soap...........

Here is my opinion in the form of a question. Don't we all come here voluntarily? Don't we all decide to consciously log on and participate here? If you have a problem with someone, sort it out, take care of it. Don't resort to insults or name calling or leaving things open to interpretation. I know the internet allows us to express ourselves to a certain extent but that doesn't mean that, once loggen onto the internet, we become uncivilized thugs who need to use our superior intellect to show others just how much of a "bully" you can be?

I have a suggestion......use it, don't use it, I don't particularly care..........

Next time when you think of commenting on someones post and you feel like making a snide comment or feel like being sarcastic or feel like showing off your massive intellect, just consider that there is another person who will be on the receiving end of that comment, even though you may not have meant it in a cruel or rude way. Next time you want to type a reply and impose your superior will on another, just don't......click on another thread and keep reading. We don't need threads like this to remind us of our humanity and our behaviour towards one another. Instead use your vast intellectual capacities for the upliftment of this forum and to make this a fun place for people to interact.......

Otherwise, just don't log on.......simples!

I did intentionally make some snaky rude comments to JJ at the beginning. Mainly because I didn't think she was legit. But I manned up and apologized, unlike some other people who just diapered and said nothing or kept going.

STOP WITH THE BULLY CRAP!

One problem we have is ....most of the people(the key players) involved in what you might consider childish behavior. As in this HB scenario, She is not just some innocent non confrontational shy person. Most of the time we have a few different people involved in some snarkiness, back forth behavior, until someone gets in a good jab. Then they want a referee and claim the rules have been broken. Don't start it if you cant take it. I swear, some people say things knowing they will be insulted just hoping everyone will feel sorry for them.
♪♪Now you swear and kick and beg us That you're not a gamblin' man Then you find you're back in Vegas With a handle in your hand♪♪ Your black cards can make you money So you hide them when you're able In the land of casinos and money You must put them on the table♪♪ You go back Jack do it again roulette wheels turinin' 'round and 'round♪♪ You go back Jack do it again♪♪

I guess that one sentence really sums it up for me and also my post from before.

If you don't want to "get into it" just don't open yourself up for abuse. Sensor yourself when you are about to say something mean.

I certainly did not think HB was without fault. I did manage to read the old thread about her asking for donations for her "boobs" so I kind of had an idea of the person she may be.

My point really is this. You voluntarily come here to relax, learn, enjoy yourself or interact with others......why force drama upon people whom you enjoy to interact with?

Life is full of drama, every day. Go out and live the drama first hand and see if you like it.....then come back here and rethink just before you cause more!!!

I applaud you HotBlonde. IMO I think it terrible how everyone swooned over JJ due to the adult nature & content. This is a public forum based on math skills & gaming IMO but this shows that the forum fails. That alone goes to show the public how everyone on this forum views women. I applaud you for standing up for yourself HotBlonde!!

Oh dear.......

(Reason for my above utterance is that this is what you decide to make your first post on this forum. I can see why you say the forum "fails")

Is this new poster possibly the previously referenced "HotBlonde's" brother?

"Did" is not a preposition.

People who claim that you should not end a sentence with a preposition do not know about what they are talking.

Geez, Bob. you're giving rules in grammar. Then you start the second sentence with the improper use of its.
