    Wow I haven't been her for a week and I now know why I don't come in here often. I mean I read a thread that my husband showed me and saw it quickly go off subject. I go thru and find at least four other threads doing it again. OMG is there a bunch of ten year old adhd kids in here who can't stick with the subject.

    Oh well I guess I am not very good with the social bull of a forum. This is the fourth one I have been too and I literally get sick of them in no time flat. No one seems to be able to handle honest opinion very well and everyone want to fit in with the crowd. Guess I don't play well with others.

    What do you expect on a website like this? If you're looking to discuss axiomatic inconsistency in set theory as laid out in The Principia Mathematica, you're on the wrong website. Mmkay.

    seconded heartily...


    what is with the conversation nazi's trying to pigeonhole every comment?

    The conversation winds its way as does any conversation...

    How can you, ed69, manage to get along in any social setting where you can not exert control over the interplay of other's interactions?

    Learn to skim the postings in a thread if you really want to know the answer to a question someone asked.

    Yeah most threads go off on tangents from the main subject but if someone gains some good info from the thread etc then the board has fullfilled it's purpose :)

    It's all good, the discussion goes back on track sooner or later. A few in the group go off in their own little discussions, leaving some trail for others that want to join in. When that's done, others steer it back on track. Sometimes I do it myself. Those discussions tend towards trying to understand the person on the other keyboard better. Remember the last thread you and Ed had ? You were trying to decide wtf to do about your daughters promiscuity, condoms & birth control pills. Ever resolve that mystery ? See, I did it again, steered away the discussion.

    I love alfalfa - and don't even get me started on that milkshake I make!

    :rolleyes:

    In all seriousness, it has to be expected. Threads that are way too dull and that most people don't understand will eventually change to something more widespread, that the group as a unit will understand more...



    Anyway, who wants a marshmallow? :wink:

    The best way to get around the board:

    1. Pick the Forum you know you can be the most beneficial, or if you want to just have fun, go the the arcade or Funny forum. You may even prefer to chat. The foundation of this board has been well thought out.

    2. Pick the people you seem to have a connection with. Go to their profile, check their postings, see if you can follow and if this these are the places you want to be.

    3. Compliment the person in a PM. Communication is a two way street. I have learned you don't wait for some people to come to you, you go to them. Tell them you like their posting style.

    4. Be a part of the solution- think of some thoughtful threads to post and actively keep up with it. Be a gracious hostess.

    Hope that helps. Was there a question I was suppose to answer?

    Wow, what the fuck was that about?


    Did anyone watch Family Guy last night? I can't believe that Meg was potentially preagnant and that she even had sex with that guy.

    Yeah because normal human conversation doesn't ever go off on a tangent. You get angry to easily. Try to relax or something, no one is forcing you to be here.
