People. This is internet. It's not something to be taken seriously. Sky won't fall even if someone is being moron on internet or if someone is banned from an internet forum.

But things would get quite a bit more "serious" in real life if a similar situation arose, so...  Cool

If someone said they were going to [do that] to my girlfriend/wife in real life I'd punch them in the face. If they were semi-serious I'd continue my response; if they weren't serious and just trying to be crude to get a rise out of me... well it would have worked, so ... mission accomplished?

He is referring to what Shiny posted in particular. I would sit about anyone down over the matter. What I wouldn't do is email women across the globe for hand holding.

A Russian national keeps sending things to my place. Which is nice an all, but the things are getting progressively larger, more attention catching, and more expensive, which in my neighborhood could cause me a lot of trouble.

So could you folks in ROCOR, ROC, or anyone living east of Hamburg let Alexis Andreyev know I said thanks, but to knock it off already?

Meh, I'd just laugh and walk away. I wouldn't risk having the law on me seeing that I'm Mexican.

Anyone that would get this offended over something said on the internet is kinda bizarre to me. I've endured far worse in the cyber world and I've never asked for sympathy or ran away.

It's the internet for crying out loud

Hi everyone. For clarification purposes, I did not leave because I was offended by what Shiny said. I left because I did not want to further escalate things and and need time to figure out how to be a more positive contributing member to the forum. I had no desire to see Shiny banned and I hope that perhaps he will be allowed to return if/when the mods feel it is appropriate. I thought Shiny added much entertainment value to the forum.

I did not reach out to anyone for counseling, handholding, sympathy or anything else.  Several people have PMed me inquiries and I responded. If anyone else wants to better understand why I did what I did, they can PM me as I still check the forum on occasion.  Or you can criticize my failings as you perceive them.  Whichever, it doesn't make a huge difference to me.  Smiley

I thought that wudda been your stance, but everyone, LBK who thinks she is everyone, was saying otherwise. Glad to have flushed you out to set matters straight.

LBK, you lose yet again.

What sign would you have me do next? I made the mute speak to show you are incorrect, what else must I accomplish?

Not that you care, but I told shiny as much when I saw your post, which seemed to me to be more introspective than vindictive and he agreed. But others had to be shown different, though they were in contact with you while I haven't ever exchanged more than a post with you, I think.

Best of luck.

I don't know what you mean by LBK being wrong, I didn't read far back enough to decipher that, but Shiny's post was the trigger for me to withdraw from the forum.  In that way, I mean, I felt it was both of our faults.  I knew I would get a rise out of him when I posted what I did, I just didn't realize it was going to escalate to that extent. Once that happened, I figured if I did not quit posting, I was going to get both of us banned.  I had hoped that perhaps the thread was hid quickly enough that the issue could just be smoothed over and everyone get put on moderated status for awhile and then it would be over.  That didn't happen unfortunately.  Sad

I will emphasize that I think the moderators were put in a very difficult situation.  I do not envy their position and regardless of what action that took, they were going to be criticized. I think all of them that were involved did their very best to curtail further inflammation and hard feelings.  In that, I think they did the best they could and I commend them for it.

I once again apologize for my involvement and if Shiny still lurks, I hope he is willing to accept my apology for my role in the matter. I don't harbor any ill feelings towards anyone here.

Ok, I think this will be my last post, otherwise, I'll get drawn back into posting and I don't want to do that yet.

I was going to make a joke by combining your name with the nickname of Sidney Crosby (#87), but that would have probably just fallen flat.  Cool

Just downloaded a King James Bible for my tablet for free. As much as I like actual books I am fascinated by the fact that I can have books for free just in few seconds. My apartment is fairly small and it's already filled with books and other stuff so I probably shouldn't buy actual books anymore or at least get rid of some of the old ones.

Masters in English with a focus in Composition

Economic suicide? Certainly. But at least I'll be learning something I enjoy. I don't need wealth to be happy.

I need to get a car so I can start college. I graduated HS a semester early and so this college stuff has caught me unprepared.
What are you gonna study?

Masters in English with a focus in Composition

Economic suicide? Certainly. But at least I'll be learning something I enjoy. I don't need wealth to be happy.

Why do you need a car? Is public transporting that bad around you?

It's actually quite well in the Bay Area but my family won't let me use it because they're worried I'll get shot or something.

How did you finish a semester early?

I did Independent Study for about a year and I was able to work at my own pace and power through most of my required work, completing my graduation requirements earlier than expected.

I remember the Bart. Pretty good, but really stuffy, funky smell inside. That thick, old upholstery.

You are much more likely to die or get injured in car wreck. But parents . . . what are you gonna do? Wish I had something like the BART.

If you are dialing a phone number within the same area code you do not have to dial the area code at the beginning of the call, otherwise you do.

For a week now I've been wondering why my closet smelled like perfume. I just realized that I apparently bought scented garbage bags.  Cheesy

Not true here. Ten digit dialling is required. There are overlapping area codes. My wife and I have cell phones (no land line) and we have different area codes. She's 905 and I'm 289.

Sounds great. I am "working" and it is playing in the background as noise and stuff to laugh at. I haven't seen nor heard a Superbowl in a few decades.

The stuff I am doing requires a lot of "distraction" for me to concentrate. Smoke one for me, it's been a while and I would love one right now. Like really love one.

The queerest thing about the Superbowl (which fuels the entire US economy) is the obsession with the commercials and the build up to them.

Oh well, we'll see how the commercial interrupting Medical Procedural Drama turns out.

If case anyone is wondering, I am backing the officiating team.

I have long been baffled by people who say, "I only watch it for the commercials" as if that makes them more intelligent than the people who watch it for the football.
