blogs.... Message board

    Is it just me or does it seem like ever since they started the blogs that not as many people are posting in the forums? Seems strange to me. Unfortunately, this site is not as fun as it used to be. I miss the good old days.

    I never let anyone tell me what I can or cannot say in here. I have my opinion and they have theirs. I just don't approve when people make it personal and start name calling. I do not think that is appropriate or necessary. Unfortunately, we cannot predict how someone will take our posts. What has happened in our day affects how we "take" a post. Some just get their panties in a wad .... some just post their say so and move on. I personally will continue telling it how I see it.... because after all... it's just my opinion, that and a nickel will get you a nickel!

    Kudos back atcha' TokeTee, what impresses me most about you is that you don't insult people or speak condescendingly to them.
    Being ourselves is essential to being heard.
    No one has to agree with our slant on things...but I respect people who give it their best effort to express themselves honestly.

    I have been called a control freak in a forum here, because I mentioned to someone that I couldn't understand their posts do to grammatical choices,(I honestly wanted to understand the poor girl better)...I felt I was polite in the words I chose, and I only wrote once in a public forum, then I emailed her in private so that she wouldn't become self conscious of my comments. She even thanked me in a private email for letting her know. But then all hell broke loose. And although there were other people who wrote in the forums that they couldn't understand her either,after all was said and done, I was chastised for it.

    Now I express what I want unabashedly, you are right about that.

    Eh, so I'm an ogre. So be it.

    I'm not called VeniVici for nuthin'.

    Veni... I LOVE your post... keep them coming. They are real, unsheltered, and raw. Shows the real you, and thats what its all about. Who cares if others do not like your posts. I'm sure I've ruffled a few feathers myself.. but hey... so what. My thoughts are my thoughts, just as you have yours. Forums and Blogs are for sharing those thoughts and if there are those who dont like our opinions, then they can certainly use their freedom of choice and SKIP IT.

    Same goes for all the lovely regulars who do not hold back and share their voices here! CUDDOS to you all !

    I write every day, in several posts, looking for forums to get answers, or leave comments. I enjoy it quite a bit. I don't do the blogs anymore because they take two days to get your replies up or even a new personnal blog up. By then, your blog, or your comment is outdated.

    Then sometimes the site deletes them. (But not for being inappropriate). Some people complained, but the LF company didn't give a crap.

    I like the forums way better.

    I don't think I have made many friends on the forums here, because I think people don't like my posts.

    But I'd like to make some friends and chat on the forums.

    So where's my plate Gumby?... lol

    You know, I can understand people asking questions that lead somewhere, but geez... some just say the same thing over and over. I mean... come on... how many times are we going to have to listen to people complain about no photos... or people who are overly sensitive.... or people who just want to pick on people... etc.

    I know all of us get down sometimes, as do I.... but I look at these forums as a place for me to show the men around here my personality. If a woman does nothing but complain about why men do this or why they do that, then NO WONDER she has no one contacting her. When I'm having a "down" day, I try not to post because I don't want that to show. I get contacted all the time and I am no better than anyone else, but I think that's because I have a great personality and I try real hard to let that show here.

    I have said this before... you attract more bees with honey than vinegar. Ladies.... and gentlemen... let's get back to being SWEET and not so bitter!

    Kewannap, Gumby's a fella ... you can't expect him to think AND type, lol.

    But whether it's you, me, Bubs or whoever, let's perk this place up and stop the moaning or everyone will be leaving in droves!

    Maybe we should get LF to open a forun specifically for those who do want to have a whinge then the rest of us could just avoid it?!

    It could be partly the blogs but also that so many of the posts are getting very samey and very "poor me"! We're starting to sound like a right bunch of moaning minnies so let's all snap out of it and bring some life back to this place!!

    It's Easter ... time for a new beginning!

    I agree Kewannap, it's getting down right boring on the forums. I know one or two on here that could help us get the ball rolling to having fun again on the forums
