    I am posting this thread to say goodbye, and because I don't think some people understand just how DAUNTING the LPSG forums can be to new members.

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Coming here as a new member was quite confusing at first. There seemed to be an hierarchy of members, and it took me ages to figure out the "nobility" of LPSG -- who was who.

    I was initially thrilled to find some people who talk about things that I was interested in (and had very little opportunity to talk about, given my background and particular situation in life).

    But in my over-enthusiasm, I spoke too much. The existing members all knew each other and were busy tinkling on each other, and I must have seemed like an annoying mosquito with my, HEY! Listen to ME! I'm here too!

    I can't tell you the number of stupid posts I made. I thoroughly annoyed some people, including but not limited to Snoozan, NJQT, and some other people I won't name. I still annoy them sometimes.

    Some of the responses I got literally had me in tears. And it still happens: Just this morning I had one.

    I've had people tell me to toughen up. I even had someone tell me that I shouldn't bother getting out of bed if I can't "take it".

    - - - -

    But I guess that's what breaks my heart: I finally learned the ropes, I finally became one of those "known" people... but the community I worked so hard to understand and join is now busy saying how sucky it all is.... and guess what...

    By extension, I'm part of that "suckiness."

    Don't tell me to toughen up. Don't tell me I'm overreacting. I am who I am.

    I have bad stuff happening in my life right now, and I don't need more negativity. I can only take just so much negativity, so I guess (unnamed) is right. I shall just have to crawl back into bed.

    So goodbye for now.

    I might be back if/when life is better.

    - - - - -

    Quick aside: From a newbie's viewpoint, the best LPSG member was Pecker, because he never judged, he never put anyone down, he always said hello to new people, and he always had something funny to say. (I never got the chance to say it, but you're fantastic, Pecker. I'm your #1 fan.)

    I tend to not care about the hierarchy

    I just post as if I am a 'key member'

    although it's like nobody even reads my posts *shrug*

    I left for a little while, got bored and came back, I never spoke to you anyway

    but byeee

    You know I have never felt the need to join the folks at the Country Club here,I've really enjoyed you and your posts. I hope I do see you when I'm rollerblading at UCLA. As I said before I'm the stunning blonde.
    I'll miss you, I hope you find your way back when things work out in real life!
    XXXOOO

    Is this serious?

    I have no idea what this is all about but then sometimes I'm dense and don't notice the subtle dynamics of personal interplay so please don't think I'm being cold.

    I love having you here! You're bright, sweet, fun, wry, and make great posts. So many people say they're leaving and then come back in a few weeks. This is the only time I actually want that to happen :cry:. Don't take this the wrong way, but you're actually one of the few women I feel attracted to in that way and that's no mean feat. You're even on my buddy list!

    Please take some time to reconsider. Maybe this is just a rough patch? Sometimes friends have fights and need time apart. I hope that's the case.

    Holy fuckinory!!!

    I can so see where you are coming from, even though I am so way behind you in terms of time and 'presence' here.

    And you are way braver than I am. I bottle out of even posting most of the time!

    I am so sorry to see you go as you are such a star on this board and you've been really kind to me and I am sure many other newbies.

    But I do understand. I, and I thought many other people, come to boards to have some fun, R&R, a break from the harsh reality of life. But this place isn't really R&R. It's more like WW III!

    Go find something that is real R&R to help you through your bad times and I wish you all the very best my darling!

    *hugs*

    ps - a little something for you....

    Yeah 'some' think they deserve something back from this site and it should bend and sway to their desires. They need to give their heads a shake.

    Maybe one of those could go instead of flim?

    Nice pic btw KK is that with a compact or SLR camera?

    Hotmilf, I really enjoyed having you here. I especially enjoyed playing Scrabble with you.:wink::biggrin: While I don't exactly agree with all of your views about how the board should be, I can say that I respect them and understand where you're coming from. I truly hope we'll see you around here again sometime soon.:smile:

    The Exilim have been going for a pretty high price.

    I'm stalking a Fuji Finepix E550 at the moment. Apparently they take amazing videos :wink:

    PS I miss you flim. I also prefer The Way You Look Tonight to Tiny Dancer...There, I said it! :p

    Although we never communicated, I sense there is an "in" crowd. I've only had one or two people communicate with me. Posting is difficult since I do not spend endless time on the computer. I'm lucky to get in one or two posts a day. Good luck.

    You know, I've felt the same way. As a relative new-comer, there does seem to be some type of LPSG inner circle....I think I first noticed this when the thread "what is OLPSG?" was started recently. It seemed like some of the more long-term members were trying to immediately kill the thread, like there was some big secret to be kept hidden.

    Anyway, I've been fortunate in that nearly all of my interactions with the members here have been positive, although I have read some very negative posts on here. I typically just try to navigate away from those and find another thread to comment on.

    I'm guessing LPSG is just like any other large group of people; you'll have the cliques, the bitchers, the bashers, the instigators...and hopefully, some really good folks you can find something in common with and share some good conversation.

    I'm sorry to see hotmilf leave and hope that she returns to impart her brand of wit and wisdom on the rest of us. :smile:

    :crying::no::yell::shocked::wtf2:

    Not trying to tell you what to do but why listen to assholes, ignore their shallow asses. I never define myself by an idiots intelligence, I just look on and pity that they are missing out on having a good time with people and find it rather sad that they find enjoyment in upsetting others.I reckon these people are socially inept and are so weak they can only come out with their comments while hiding behind their internet connection.
    I won't say anything on the net that I would not say to someone face to face.
    These internet bullies are shit-houses awaiting a real life kick-in.
    Don't lose out, post and exchange with the intelligent people here, you're too witty and clever to lose!!!!
    Besides you can't leave, your gallery is tooooo hot!!!!

    Aw, dammit, there, hotmilf, don't go- please???? c'mon, we'll talk somewhere, have some coffee, get everything ironed out as it were. But don't split- you're one of the cooler posters I love here. Nope, nope, nope, ain't leaving, so put your bag in your locker again, get your hot li'l self over here, and we'll talk, ok?

    Don't make me sad- I get so sad when people I really love here drop out.

    Look here I reduced the entire length of this posting because it is on page one but I wanted to say you should not leave No one should ever feel a need to leave here This place is supposed to be open and inviting to all and it is terrible terrible that you have been made to feel bad Give us the names of these terrible rotten people for me to track down and destroy. At the end you say you shall now crawl in to bed may be that is good and a good rest for the night will make you feel better by tomorrow and you will be back with more posts. I certainly hope you return and are just reacting on a bad day and by morning will forget any mean things which might have been said to you Again, give us the names and we will track them down and crush, kill, destroy. Well at least destroy and crush Killing is very bad and means jail time if caught Please feel better soon

    Hey hotmilf, I am really sad to hear that you may be leaving us for some time...you're one of the people who keeps me coming here, even if you are a new member...so what? I like the way you are so direct, even if that may get you into some heated exchanges, it's better than pussyfooting around, at least we get some interesting debate from you.

    A lot of us here know what it is like to feel the heat from time to time, most of us have posted things in hindsight we wished we hadn't, and others we damn well meant to....no matter what the haters say, I sincerely hope you don't let that be the reason for you leaving us.

    I hope that you get through this hard time, and I believe it's clear by this thread that you have quite a bit of support and friendship here at LPSG....so take heart, take some time for yourself, and I for one hope that it won't be too long before we hear from you again.

    Ed

    From the tone and frequency of your posts recently I had no idea you were becoming discouraged and approaching something of a crisis, hotmilf. I'm sorry to discover thats actually the case.

    If my input is worth anything I'd urge you to reconsider quitting because I enjoy reading your posts and joking with you. I think you make a positive contribution to the threads and the site would be the less without your charm and humor. You've got at least one pal in me.
